My mom and I went on outing this morning to do some research for our upcoming trip to Tokyo. It's only a week away!
We started out at Corner Bakery then made a run to the bookstore to get inspired.

You may wonder why I'm wearing a leopard faux-fur at the beginning of summer-because a) I felt like it and b) people crank up their air conditioning at full blast during the summer. It's freezing inside! I'm lying in bed wearing it. I may sleep in it.

Mom picked up this necklace from some dude's garage this morning, along with a couple of other treasures. Its a 'key to my heart necklace-kinda lame but actually really cool!!


Mom's Pamela Love claw & some other random beads.

Today I wore silk Dries van Noten boxing shorts, an American Apparel tank, thrifted sunglasses, Stella Mccartney sandals along with the vintage faux-fur and necklace. And my dinosaur Prada bag, as always!
Mom wore a vintage flannel, Donna Karan blazer, Gucci sunglasses, vintage jeans, and Alejandro Ingelmo ankle boots.

Counting the days until we get to Tokyo-we're going to be staying there for three weeks. I've been anticipating all year. I'll definitely be keeping you guys updated through the blog.

Thanks for the post. Your style is amazing and those vintage sunnies are sooo chic-where did you get them from?is there a brand name etc?
I'm excited to see how you will dress in Japan; but it will be quite hot there during this period-don't know whether a coat is necessary :D

It's pretty awesome that SOS finally lands in JAPAN!Take lots of pics!!

4 things:

1. Way to rock your mama's Stella's!

Oh, and I've been rocking "key to my heart" necklaces for years. LOVE.

Hi, I just discovered your blog about 2 minutes ago, and this being my first entry to read.. I wanted to thank you for wearing those Stella McCartney shoes, I've been doubting them, because the only place I saw them were on the official website, in other words, not worn by an actual person! And seeing as your style is just wonderful, it has given me a great look at home the shoes look in action, thanks!

Also, I was in Tokio a few years ago... and I wish you all the joy and experience. I loved being there, and wish to go back soon again :)

It's nice discovering you.

Love from Holland, -x-

What are you going do there besides exploring around, shopping and finding inspirations? Where are you gonna stay? When do you plan to leave? Dear god, please let me bump into you on the streets of Tokyo!

Wow, so jealous of your Tokyo trip!
Mum and I were going to go there ourselves this past winter, but we went to India for 10 weeks instead for the price of a 3 week Tokyo trip, haha. I had an amazing time in India obviously, but I'm still kinda regretting the fact I didn't get to go to Japan...

Did you by chance get your vintage faux fur jacket in Tulsa? I bought a fab leopard coat from Silver Screen Vintage, a favorite vintage shop of yours and I could see it coming from there. Just wondering. I thoroughly enjoy your blog and hope to branch out with my style,using your blog as a source of inspiration. Have fun on your trip.

Make sure you visit the Prada Boutique in Omotesando. It's an amazing building. If your feet are anything over a euro 37, forget about fitting any cute Japanese shoes (story of my life!).

Photo of isadora

Photo of Annie

i agree... i feel a little silly carrying a sweater when it's 90 degrees outside, but i feel like the thermostats are permanently set on freezing in the stores!
