Random thoughts, comments, observations and general fluff from a random bint who left London at the end of September 2004 to embark on a new life and new adventures in Tokyo, land of the cute.... and is leaving mid-June 2010 - and counting!

A lady in her 50's, on the train, wearing a dark green prim suit.

In velvet.

And covered in light green greyhounds.

Not spotted, but reported to me by a friend: woman wearing a fake-fir pair of aqua blue knee briches with black lace bottom lycra long johns poking out from underneath, paired with a silk top, just covering her boobs, over a jersey sweatshirt with bat wings.

Doesn't that sound lovely? Actually, one of the many odd looks here is to wear pretty camisole tops OVER long sleeve tops, sweaters, etc.

A friend and I mused this afternoon whether people here wake up in the morning and think to themselves: what's the strangest combination of clothes I can wear today?

I absolutely LOVE the way Japanese women dress. So different, so quirky, so sexy.

But there are millions of women running around dressed like a bad version of something from http://www.gofugyourself.typepad.com/

The let's-play-dressup-as-i'm-only-four-years-old look, doesn't work on adults. It's that simple.

Oh Jo.... there's the Brit in you!
Who knows... maybe by the time you're done with Japan.. you'll be going home in a I'm-on-the-right-side-of-five-years-old outfit as well.
Complete with Kitty-Chan furry pink and green purse!

Let go Jo... walk toward to (neon) lights... be one with Kitty-Chan.
