Vintage navy Sailor Shirt from local markets, Rittenhouse shorts, Derby Millinery suspenders, custom pleated skirt from Lawrara Shop, Demonia creepers.

Since I leave for Tokyo, Japan in a about one week, I imagine this will be my last outfit post until then. Coincidentally in fitting with this, I’ve sort of unintentionally created my own variation of the seifuku (制服) / sailor uniform with this amazing authentic sailor shirt I picked up for $10 at some local markets. I haven’t had this much thrifting luck in a long time! I even checked out where the shirt originated, and as embroidered on the right-hand sleeve it’s from the U.S.S. Caron (check this and this out). I have about a million things to get done before I jet off next week, so crunch time has officially begun!

In case I don’t see you on here until I’m in Japan, be sure to follow me on tumblr and twitter – especially twitter! I’ll be flying by myself on the way to Tokyo before I meet up with my travel buddies, so I’ll need some company on my journey over (^▽^*)

    Ah you listen Purity Ring too! I'm hoping to see them live this summer :)I think you're great for all those authentic vintage finds which still completely suit your own style. Although you have a very different style than me I think you're one of the coolest bloggers out there! I've checked out your portfolio too and it looks great. May I ask you how you've archieved all this? One day, I would love to be a photographer/stylist too (haha yea who wouldn't…) but it all seems so unreachable when I look at your blog…like HOW AM I EVER GOING TO REACH THAT !?!?
