I think i'm turning Japanese...

Oriental goods delivered straight to your door - a concept, as you can imagine, not entirely foreign to us [why, many a night we have waited for a certain rap-rap-rapping on the glass to receive a myriad of tasty treats. The only way that moo shu could get in our mouths any quicker would be a funnel through a letterbox- an image too graphic for 10am this morning!]

And so, as we went about lives this week [indigestion in tow - note to self: CHEW!] little did we know of the glorious Japanese surprise that awaited us...

'Brilliant!' we thought. scooping it up for a lunch-time persue. A whole issue on Japanese vintage. At the fairs, we see many fashionistas from the East always impeccably-dressed and accessorized. As one of our facebook faves Japanese Streets [go on, take a look] testament with their regular street-style, old-world's alive and kicking, no matter what your timezone.

We flicked on, thumbing our way to a middle-page spread. 'Pretty!' we thought, thinking how very...London this looked...

Flicking on, we began to wonder...could we be in this? Narcissistic yes,  that some big glossy fashion mag [named So-en by the by, Japan's very first fashion magazine, founded in the 30s!] would feature us. But hey, we're dreamers! Just as we thought the bubble had been burst, we came across this..

WOOHOO! Regardless of what could be quite questionable PR [we, unfortunately, don't speak a lot of Japanese. Touch wood, we're taking the text as positive, not negative] it's lovely to be featured!

Arigato So-en magazine! Here's to our next over-seas feature!

A weigh in the life...

Some things are meant to be shared; good [and bad] jokes, gin, your best friend's wardrobe [despite what they say..] and THIS, dear readers, a snap from last weekend's London Vintage Kilo Sale...

Meet Lally. Student. Stylist. All-round good-egg. Lally was out and about helping to promote The Vintage Kilo Sale, five hours of London madness that saw the capital snaffle up 3 TONNES of vintage clothing [we'll be back on December 17th if anyone wants round two, as well as jaunts to Leeds and Edinburgh]

We can't really explain Lally's style and we think that's why we like it. Inexplica-chic [remember where you heard it first!] it's a great look! Catch Lally and our other street teams putting the 'prom' into 'promo' all over the UK and post here if you want to get involved.
