Photos by Christina!

coat  vintage from wasteland
dress vintage, thrifted (used to be floor length)
cardigan  vintage from jet rag
shoes  vintage ferragamo

A few photos from a Japantown adventure with Christina, who kindly let me be her tour guide. Pretty much all of my favorite things are in Japantown: sushi, karaoke, the best stationary store ever, a Daiso store where everything is $1.50, and (of course) Pika Pika. Lately I've even been doing my grocery shopping at an amazing market right in the middle (despite the fact that it's not very close to my apartment). I don't what 70% of the things are because most of the labels are written entirely in Japanese but I load up my cart anyways and try to figure it out when I get home. Which, as you can imagine, is pretty entertaining.

I love the two light colored coats with the bright print dress! If Japantown is anything like Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, then I totally understand why you keep going back. Their markets are so endlessly fascinating! x

This whole outfit is sooooo everything I love--a retro patterned dress, yellow accents, and colored tights. You look adorable! Personally, I can't do sushi, but the rest of Japantown sounds like a lot of fun!

Such a cute and carefree post. I love the idea of loading my shopping trolley (cart!) with stuff that I have no idea what it actually is! May need to give that one a try...!

I LOVE Daiso!!! There is one in this weird little mall here downtown, but I just found another one by my house in the middle of the International district here!
