Happy New Year! I spent the holiday break eating, sleeping, and spending time with my cat/family and friends. And thanks to my newly acquired lactase pills I was able to enjoy cheese again, making the whole holiday experience that much better. I am not one for new year resolutions; if there's something to do start it now otherwise there's a WHOLE YEAR to procrastinate. Life may be better measured in experiences rather than years.

Next month I will be heading over to Japan for a couple of weeks. As any pious devotee, I will be making my first pilgrimage to the shrines of the Fashion Gods. At the top of my list are Yohji, Ann, Rick and CdG. I also plan to visit Dover Street Market, however as this is my first visit to Japan any other suggestions/tips in the Tokyo area would be appreciated!

Best wishes for the New Year! I look forward to sharing with you and also following in the adventures of those of you with blogs.

  3. Lovely shapes here! The skirt and boots go together seamlessly.
    Happy New Year!
    I'm sure you'll bring home some exquisite fashions from your Japan trip.

  4. I also suggest a store called Lift écru and Lift étage in Daikanyama. Also for the odd cheap rare pieces, second hand designer stores such as KIND, RAGTAG and RINKAN. I bought a rare Rick leather vest for only 30000 yen which I will post on my blog later :)

    1. Thank you for the suggestions! I am eager to see what I can rustle up at second hand stores. Your new leather vest was a fantastic find, I've had my eye on it for a while! Eager to see how you wear it. :)

  6. Happy New Year! I don't know what became of my original comment…trying again..

  7. Happy New Year to you, too! Great silhouette on the skirt, high waisted ones are my favorite. Excited to read all about your Japan trip... Tokyo for sure is one of the best cities for fashion or for most everything, really. If you like secondhand shopping, make sure to check out Rinkan and on the non-shopping front, I think you'll enjoy the many cat cafes.

    1. Thank you for the tips! I'm excited to have a physical shopping experience. Shopping online has its perks but it would be nice to experience the clothing/atmosphere/everything in person. Oh boy, if I am able to DRAG my boyfriend to a cat cafe...

  8. Mia, my original comments disappeared? But love this outfit so much I had to come back... Love the proportions of this outfit. The slouchy boots and the high waist compliment each other beautifully.

  9. Stephanie and Deborah - I am not sure why you're comments disappeared? I know I can no longer comment through Blogger on in Chrome, I have to use Firefox, very frustrating. But Happy New Year, and thank you both very much! :)

  10. A Happy New Year to you too! You'll love Japan, it'll be wintry and wonderful. Head straight to Omotesandō for designer boutiques and afterwards Shibuya for high street and homewares (keep an eye out for Muji). The contemporary Mori Art Museum in Roppongi Hills also comes highly recommended.
