So you know when you're on holiday and you've had the chance to do laundry maybe once or twice, but that was a couple of destinations ago and now you're running out of clean things to wear...? Yeah. But I actually ended up liking this slightly mish-mashed outfit! Eclectic, that's what I'm going to call it!
We took these pictures in Tokyo's Harajuku district, which as you may know is the place to go people-spotting, especially on a Sunday. People walk around in clothes they made themselves, or thrifted, or bought in any number of the stores there. You get lots of Gothic Lolita people, sure, but there are so many more creative and inspiring looks to sneak a peek at while you're there! Though sadly, we went on a Monday, so we didn't get the full parade, as it were. Though we still ran into a guy in Starbucks who looked like a preppy Elf as he met up with a female friend. "Friends don't let friends go outside looking like they work for Santa," Victor whispered in my ear.
And speaking of making new friends... check out this lovely lady, haha. Somebody made her just for fun, I think - and put her between two shops so you had no idea who she even belonged to. Actually, looking at that blue cable snaking out from under her skirt, I think she belonged to the store on her left. And that makes me wonder if she actually lights up after dark?! Harajuku is cool because it's just overflowing with creativity, so I wouldn't put it past the people there to construct a huge Day of the Dead skeleton lady that glows in the dark just because they can. .
And finally, here's one I took for my favourite alpaca lover! Best doorstop ever, eh Jenni?
