Continuing on with day three of our Japan holiday: we took the train to Kita-Kamakuraa, saw the Engakuji temple and Kenchoji temple. We took the enoden train and saw the Big Buddha Daibucu (he’s the second largest Buddha in Japan and is 12 meters tall), and we also saw the Hase-dera temple (with the lovelly statue of Kannon), then we took the Enoden train to the end station Enoshima. We went up to the Enoshima lighthouse, M had dinner at Enoshima and I waited (as there was nothing for me) and had dinner back in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

Life has been pretty hectic lately, but then again it seems that I always say that. This is an outfit from last weekend – M and I met up with a friend and we hung out, grabbed lunch, went to a book store (bought myself a pretty awesome book, more about that later) and did a spot of sightseeing. It was a lovely day and I was also quite pleased with my outfit, though to be honest it was a bit cold out for it. Spring, where are you? I’m totallly ready for ya.

Disclaimer: I’m an animal lover above all and I don’t think it is right for people to purchase new animal fur coats (and thus supporting the animal fur trade). That said, I’m completely fine with fur items as long as they are VINTAGE and not furthering the demand for fur items. Maybe one day that will change and I will be against all fur items (because in a way even vintage fur supports the fur trade – someone will see someone else in a lovely vintage fur coat, they’ll want it but won’t be able to find a vintage version so maybe they’ll buy a new fur coat) (and in this day and age, when synthetic clothing can be just as warm as fur, no one needs a fox/rabbit/mink etc coat except for the fox/rabbit/mink etc.)
On to the fashion.

I teased you with this outfit not long ago and guess what, I finally downloaded the photos from my phone onto my computer. I wore this outfit on December 21st to an anni dinner with M. (We have this silly but totally sweet tradition that we celebrate our mini-anniversary every month by having a fancy dinner.) I had just received this fabulous bag a few days before and couldn’t wait to wear it out. I have become quite a clutch fan this past year and this is definitely one of my favorite.

One more outfit from the weekend (the last one actually) and this one is from Saturday when we were running some errands. I wore my super cute Dorothy Perkins pointed toe coral flats. They have some really interesting studded detailing and they are really comfy so I really love these shoes.

So, leopard print flats are one of my favorite types of flat shoes. I think they can take an outfit further than regular black flats, which I otherwise would constantly be wearing. The shoes pictured above are one of my favorites. They are by Blink and I love the cutesy bow and mouse face on the toe of the shoes – just adorable. You’ve seen them on this blog before:

Yesterday’s shoe purchase post got me thinking about leopard print shoes. Leo print is one of my all-time favorites on shoes. It is almost a “neutral” in my book. I counted that I have 29 pairs of leopard print shoes in my current collection. Anyways, I thought it would be nice to do a sort of tribute to/flashback of my leopard print shoes.
Let’s start with one of my favorites:
These shoes are from Miss Selfridge and I got them in 2011 when we were on vacation in London (I bought 14 pairs of shoes on that trip, crazy.) I’ll be honest and say they aren’t the most comfortable shoes in the world, but they are still amazing.

Another look from February and this one was particularly a favorite, because I loved my entire outfit: the jacket is from Zara Woman (it totally reminds me of Project Runway creations, well, the good ones anyway) is super quirky and thus I totally love it; the dress (also Zara Woman) is super short so that also seems to work for me haha. The quilted chain detail bag (Mango) is one of my favorites and currently I am waiting on an eBay purchase of this same bag, yup, I love it so much I repurchased it. But you know me and it’s always about the shoes. The shoes, my goodness, the shoes. I had wanted these Iron Fist Leopard print “Lounge Days” wedge shoes for ages and then they were sold out and I thought I’d never have them but luckily my Iron Fist store restocked them (I’m hoping the same thing will happen with the “Buns’n’Roses” shoes I’m currently lusting after) and I actually managed to buy these in the sales!

I planned on going to today’s exam (my last exam until finals) but I’ve decided to post-pone the exam. I’m tired, cranky, and have a vicious head cold. Although it would possibly help my french accent, I don’t think I could speak anyways. Yeah, it’s pretty bad. Head colds are the worst. Anyways, still I’m in PJ’s (cropped harem pants and a tank top, same difference) I thought I’d share something that I did last year the first week of September 🙂

Another flashback/favorite outfit from February 2014 – and again, it’s all about the shoes. I had been lusting after a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita ankle boots for ever and I finally managed to buy a pair in neon pink…
