Things I have my eye on……..

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Hello

It seems I have a “need” to constantly browse Japanese clothing, I just recently was put back to dial up speed and I think I actually had withdrawals when I couldnt do this at least once a day*L*

Here are the things that are catching my eye just now

Balcony and Bed are always beautiful, but this wonderful Liberty print is killing me

This very sensible looking, for me at least, bag from Beaure, it even has a matching wallet

Mother too always has things that I drool over, but these cute little socks and this top are my current favourites

oh and this top as well, I love the gentle fall of it and the subtle writing, rather beautiful

20310551and just a little bit of circus fun from Franche Lippee as well

Ive decided the only thing I can have from all this loveliness is the sensible bag, there are times in life when you just need a bag that isnt shaped like an animal or covered in eye catching pattern!   Maybe if I make some things to sell I can justify one more thing………………..

PS if you are looking for any of these brands, try out Rakuten in English translation mode, many of the shops now ship international.

Its more shoes….

Hello

With Winter coming I am supposed to be finding a pair of plain brown boots to replace the pair I have with a hole in them……….like these Koos

or perhaps these from Jeffrey Campbell

They are both good practical Winter boots, brown………….however, I just keep getting distracted by things like these from Minnetonka

mocasin

I see myself padding about in moccasins, maybe tracking deer?

or something very strappy from RNA-N

more Jeffrey Campbell

Or these Jane Marple four straps, which for me are the Holy Grail of shoes

Ive taken so long to decide of course that at least two of these have sold out, I think its the black strappy Jeffrey Campbell ones that are winning, but they arent boots are they?

Jane Marple

Here is another favourite Japanese brand Jane Marple I think my life would be complete if I could own one of these squashy little boaters, but it is singularly difficult stuff to get your hands on outside of Japan unfortunately.

I simply adore the shoes, one day I will time it just right and be in Japan when these are in store, one day………..
