So yesterday I mentioned that my mom had scheduled an appointment for a haircut at a funky hair salon. Thinking it would be an interesting experience to document, I packed my D3 and tagged along. I didn't know what to expect but my mom described the vibe of the salon as 'bohemian hippie grunge'. I dressed somewhat accordingly...

Vintage patchwork leather jacket, stripe tee from Urban Outiftters, Hysteric Glamour jeans, Martin Margiela clogs, Martin Margiela python clutch, vintage belt from my mom's old boutique, and my elephant necklace.

Upsy Daisy was tucked away in a semi-underground nook off of Omotesando, just a short distance from the Chanel and Martin Marigela boutiques.

The clientele there made for VERY intersting people watching! Loved this girl's short shorts with shearling cuffs and super-slashed tee.

They had a pretty fish tank outside the door.

Some of the extensions hanging on the walls-pretttttyyy, so much texture.

I think the little room in the back was a makeup station. I totally want to get my makeup done there!


My mom has told me that Japanese hair stylists cut your hair in a very different way than they do in the US so I was kind of curious to watch the process.

The end result! 

Maybe it was the hair-dye fumes, but somehow when I was hanging out at Upsy Daisy, I got it in my mind that it would be a great idea to get some colorful extensions woven into my hair...I made the appointment for tomorrow afternoon.
I'll let you know how it goes!

dear Jane
Does your mom speak Japanese? She seems to be really comfortable around Japanese people and know her way around the city.
Just curious.

That leather jacket is fantastic! I would really want one simular to yours.

What a cool idea to go to a hairsalon in Tokyo. I would have never thought of that, but actually I think, doing things like that, really make you experience another culture. Doing daily things the real inhabitants do too. Then you will notice the real difference in culture, which is very interesting. Thank you for sharing this!

You look like you are having such a fun time in Japan! I would love to visit there someday. My main question is HOW do you go sightseeing around in those shoes?! I mean, they are fantastic, awesome, amazing shoes, but I would be limping after a while. Do you keep flats in your bag?

I recently discovered your blog- you are so creative and great w/ words (and of course, fashion). Love the look you put together in this post- the geometric jacket with the striped top looks fab, and love the texture juxtaposition with the snakeskin clutch.

Jane - i was STOKED to see you in my email box today in "the cut" from New Yor Magazine and WWD. But READ THIS: "Holt Renfrew is the latest fashion player to catch social media fever. The Canadian department store chain is preparing a series of blogger-inspired window displays for nine stores, including the Toronto and Vancouver flagships. Due to be unveiled Friday, the windows will salute high-profile names in the fashion blogosphere, notably The Sartorialist’s Scott Schuman, Bryanboy, Tommy Ton (Jak & Jil) and 17-year-old Texan Jane Aldridge (Sea of Shoes)." -WWD

You are going to be a Canadian Mannequin? Do you know about this? Did they even ask to use your likeness, I hope they did...

Photo of Julia

I am so jealous of that necklace. Elephants are my favorite. I am curious how much luggage you guys take with on trips! You are always wearing something different. Love it.
