tokyo fashion

i, jane, just got back from tokyo, japan a few days ago! (more to come on my itinerary soon) when i went to tokyo, i had a single vision of what kind of fashion i would see. i imagined the eccentric, colorful “baby doll” style outfits that people tend to stereotype tokyo for having. however, i was instead exposed to wide spectrum of styles. something very prevalent was a french influence. french boutiques and french inspired fashion was everywhere. to further investigate, i spent a day in the western area of tokyo near the ebisu subway station to shop the french boutique filled neighborhoods.  here are a few pictures and pieces i brought home !

this yellow shirt was my favorite purchase of the trip.

was also in love with this fun collar, but sadly it didn’t fit right. (and the whole store was one size fits all… which isn’t too uncommon for tokyo!)

and speaking of fashion, here’s what i wore for my week in asia.

pink sweatshirt: h&m

black jeans: madewell

green shoes: karhu (and also the absolute best shoes for traveling. super comfortable and easy to match and work with a variety of outfits and colors)

  1. I’ve just come back from ten days in Tokyo. It’s an amazing city for fashion, food, sightseeing and generally making you aware of how big and varied our world is.
    Bought so many clothes, we had to buy a bigger suitcase (and brought a load of stuff back in our hand luggage too!)
