Yes, Tokyo Japan.
The first time I went there was in '07, and I was a little in over my head. The fashion was so extreme and so different, and most of their sizes didn't fit this size 6-8 American frame. I only bought one or two pieces because of this deer-in-the-headlights mentality.
Then, when I returned this year, I shopped with a vengeance. I had a gameplan, ladies. I decided to only buy WINTER clothes. Why? Well, in the early fall you have cute summer clothes you can transition from, then in late fall you're actually *excited* to wear your sweaters. Spring and summer, forget it. Cute-fest. But winter is the dregs of fashion. I decided that I would only buy cool things for my winter wardrobe in Tokyo, and it worked. I focused on fun, quirky pieces that you can't get anywhere in the US.
This outfit today is 90% Tokyo, right down to the frilly peeptoe boots.
I thought my plan was foolproof-- I had a pretty good winter, clothing-wise, but now I'm seeing the error of my ways...
...I want cool Japanese spring clothes! Wah!
