My macbook is back and so am I! I’ve been enduring some severe technological issues which basically downgraded me to a computerless for one month. So now back to real life after my amazing trip to Tokyo which I can’t wait to share with you after sorting a ****load of footage. The Tokyo bug has really got me though. One day I’m strolling through Harajuku slightly peaking above a mass of generally really intimidatingly well styled native fashionista’s, despite a metric head start (in their advantage) of 5cm of solid flatforms. Wait a minute. How come everyone there is wearing massive flatforms, pulling it off and making it look as effortless as plain white converses? I mean, in some cases flatforms come with the volatility of an elephant. But flatforms and skirts are to Tokyo what sneakers and jeans are to us. Just there basic throw-on-and-go. I was surprised to see that even my favorite childhood sandals made it to Tokyo. Teva platforms worn by the cool kids in Harajuku, socks obligatory. What a pleasant surprise indeed to find a Teva package on my doorstep as a welcome back home. Since I’m a sucker for nineties fashion, I die for these white minimalistic flatforms.
