So I finally got around to make a post about the things I bought in Tokyo. Please enjoy!
This is difficult to see, but here’s a transparent cardigan with fringes (which you can see on my Instagram) from SPINS, a tote bag from h.NAOTO and a pair of leg warmers from the same brand. The cardigan is really gonna be a favorite of mine and a great treasure from my Tokyo trip!
Here’s the print of an oversize t-shirt from Listen Flavor. Its not my usual style, but LF has really cute stuff and the material is so comfy! Kind of an over-prized nightgown you might say.
These both items are from my new favorite brand Ghost of Harlem. The white dress will probably be used in a photoshoot soon. The top is a new favorite, its stylish and comfortable at the same time. And I love the back, its a really nice touch.
Of course I couldn’t go to Tokyo without buying CD’s! I bought most of them at Book off, which is a brand of second hand store. They sell books of course, but also CD’s, movies and video games. I bought the following:
MOTHER – LUNA SEA
LUNA SEA – LUNA SEA
SHINE – LUNA SEA
Kiss – L’Arc～en～Ciel
Art of Life – X JAPAN (with a small photo book)
Voyage – Femme Fatale
Voyage ~Sans Retour~ – MALICE MIZER (sort of amused I bought two “Voyage”)
La Collection des Singles – L’edition Limitee – – MALICE MIZER
I bought the Femme Fatale single at Tower Records, which is of course on of the best places in Tokyo. Part from all the music you can buy, they also have a café with Rilakkuma theme. It was cute, even the burgers were shaped as him. So, Tower Records is a must when visiting Tokyo.
When I lived in Hong Kong I fell in love with Etude House which is a store selling skin products and cosmetics. The stores look like small pink houses and their packaging is so cute. I bought the facial mask Wonder Pore which I’ve been wanting to try for a while. I don’t know how well it works yet, but its fun to use since the foam feels like shaving cream (I sometimes get myself a beard when using it, haha!). I also bought a perfume which I love.
The nail polishes are from the 100 yen store, and then work surprisingly well for being so cheap! Lastly, the facial sheet masks are from Korea town.
Lastly I got some decoration for the house. The pink box is a cookie box from Disneyland and now I’m using it to store my sewing supplies. The mug I found at a store at Odaiba island and do I really need to comment on it? Its like it was made for me! The Halloween painting is from a KERA shop. Sadly, I don’t remember the artist. The second painting is from a museum and its a poem. I wanted something that represented both new, modern Tokyo and something more traditional but still something that matched. I really think I succeeded!
So there you have it! I’m happy with my finds and I’m also surprised I didn’t buy more, haha! Hopefully it can inspire some of you on where to shop if you go to Tokyo.
See you soon lovelies,
