Sept: Japanese Street Fashion

I haven't done one of these in a while but here are some quick collages that I made up of some of my favourite finds from Japanese street fashion sites. I'm loving all the prints and patterns as usual and I've decided that I must invest in some more quirky tights for AW.

However, I bought some heart tights from Topshop to replace a pair I laddered and what happened? I promptly ripped a great big hole AGAIN. It was also my first purchase at Topshop without my student discount which makes it hurt a little bit more! Oh student discount, how I miss you already.

I'm so happy to be free of the clutches of the MSc but it's so hard saying goodbye this time round as I spent 4 years at the same uni and also, so many of my friends are international. It's kind of strange knowing that I can't hop on a a train to see them but more like I need to save £500 for a flight to Taipei/Seoul/HK etc.

Still, it does fuel a need for an EPIC tour of Asia at some point. Saving the pennies as we speak!!

  6. They all look like they're competing for some craziest outfit award; but they look amazing at the same time! I MUST get a good navy blue military jacket like that guy's!

  12. I have some friends here who have fabulous styles like this. But you know what? They're ALL broke ALL the time. Most of them work in clothes shops and some make their own bits and bobs but even so, they really need to learn how to budget!

  15. I really love the first outfit. That girl is working it in those red shoes!

    And I totally understand the pain of ripping your tights. It's so awful.

  19. hi darling! thanks for sharing! such unique styles and fun patterns! there was one time i bought topshop tights and when i was about to put them on i pulled too hard and did the exact same-- sucked.. and do you know- im upset about loosing my student discount too ;(
    wish you a wonderful week darling

  20. oh I love the japan finds, I have the book fruits and fruits 2 and am always flicking through it. Never fails to inspire me. Oh no how rubbish I hate when tight's ladder, what way is it up or across. You can make a pattern about it and layer them with a pair underneath, I use to do that everyday. Oh Winnie hope you do get a tour hunni, I know how hard is it not having great friends with you. Most of mine are in Oz and China :(

    Well hope you have better luck for the rest of the week, and please share more of these. Love them xxx

  22. Hope you find the perfect tights now..fall is coming..you'll need them before you know it. I have to admit I love these shoes in this street fashion..basically, its because I know they are shoes that would get you where you need to go.

  35. That would be an incredible bit of travelling being reunited with all of your friends! I lived with an indian guy in uni who has recently moved home - it's very sad!

    Laddering tights is one of the most depressing things EVER.. Just behind getting terrible neighbours at a festival I reckon! :) x

  41. Love your picks, personally I dig the boys style more, though I'm partial to J-boys so that's not really an indication of fair judgement, haha.
