From the weekend

It rained all morning and most of the afternoon yesterday-here are some pictures taken around the hotel while we waited for the drizzle to subside.

I wore a pair of Comme des Garcons Homme Plus pants I picked up on Saturday- my mom and I both got a pair, haha. The store was incredible! I'll go back and next time I'll take pictures of the building.

Sipped some tea while I watched the rain come down.
The weather on Saturday was lovely...hoping to experience similar weather today!

I bet the Koi fish liked the rain.

Wondered around the streets of Harajuku.


Lots of cute guys like this one hanging  around. he looked pretty confused/kinda pissed when I asked if I could take his picture. Sorry, guy :(

Does he look familiar?? ;) Ran into him again!
On Saturday I ran into my friend Amit and we did some shopping together. Super fun. 


Outside one of the CDG stores and Undercover 

I love this elephant necklace! I got it just before I came to Tokyo.

So many people have asked what camera I'm using...I use a Nikon D300 and two 1.4 lenses.

My mom has a hair appointment at a very funky salon soon-I'm going to tag along and take some pictures. See you soon.

The gorgeous tulip trousers with the elephant necklace outfit = magnifique!

I'm sorry Jane, but that blue and black camera bag thing does not go with your outfit at all!!! Couldn't you have used your Prada dinosaur bag? :)

Looking fabulous as always, Jane!

Oh, BTW, since you're in Japan, you should try these amazing cookies called Yoku Moku. They are probably the best cookies in the world in my opinion. They are packaged individually and stored in very nice tin containers. You'll love them! Have fun!

Photo of Kristen

I don't know what is more astonishing, your photography or your outfits. I think it's both. Looking forward to seeing more of your trip!

I'm glad you ask people if you can take their picture first! Living in London, I get so many random people just taking pictures without asking me and it gets really annoying :)

Glad you are enjoying Tokyo!

Hi Jane, you're looking good this time! Amazing sequin blazer, CDG pants, elephant necklace & YSL caged shoes. :D ha ha that guy is definitely looking puzzled for a momment. And love the guy's feature on the 3rd last picture. Thanks for sharing these. Simply breath-taking experience.

Photo of chloe

argh! i go crazy when you post outfits and dont tell us exactly what every single item you're wearing is from/who it's by.

please please please label all the items in your outfit for pedants like me.
perhaps you could take a lesson from susie bubble's book, by precisely naming every single item in your outfit until streetstyle photographers' eyes get glazed over? ;)

Photo of chloe

ps. those koi fish are freaky...

Photo of sabila anata

Oh ! I just LOOOVEE your camera :)

The black color of your outfit with the pop of gold from the pendant contrasts so well against your fair hair and light skin. The effect is great! :D I'm loving the posts from Japan :)
