[ vintage shopping in Harajuku ]

I think the weather gods might be reading my blog because it hasn’t rained in Seoul since my last post – solid logic right :). This linen look is from a day of shopping in the famous Harajuku area of Tokyo where I discovered some cool vintage shops. Tokyo is definitely an expensive city but vintage pieces tend to cost about the same as they do in the US.  That day I ended up leaving Harajuku three vintage dresses richer and about $100 poorer.  I loved shopping in the vintage stores because there was hardly a need to even look at the sizes. About 95% of all the pieces ranged from size 0-4.  I’ll also never forget my experience of trying the clothes on.  Before going into the change-room, you neatly leave your shoes on a little rug outside and put on a special round tissue over your head so as not to get makeup on the dresses.  Tokyo is definitely one of the cleanest places in the world with arguably the most well-mannered and friendly inhabitants.

The last two pictures were taken just last night.  The dress I’m wearing is one of the three vintage dresses I bought that day in Harajuku.

What I’m wearing:

  • Linen top from H&M
  • Linen pants by Elie Tahari 
  • Nude strappy sandals by Marciano
  • Sunglasses by Marni
