new leather

All the stores have spring crap and I have been having a pretty hard time finding black leather/pleather jackets long enough to cover my navel on a thin day, so imagine my joy and pleasant surprise when I came across this hot little moto inspired jacket at Zara today! ¥12,900 for fake leather, but that's okay.

it's been a while

2 new outfits from recent outings!

First this one. I've been obsessed with shirt-dresses lately, and this is one that I bought recently. Skulls, random Engrish, I love it! I'm wearing that with ripped leggings and blue tights underneath. Also an F21 military-style jacket and engineer boots.

And next this one. I thought this gray hoodie would be long enough to be a short dress but I guess not, so I paired it up with uniqlo black pants-leggings. That thing on my head is a pleather-ish bow headband. Also wore glasses, which I haven't worn in a long time, but I love them! And of course, the boots I've been wearing a lot lately, the strappy chunky boots.

I picked this little chippy up at a Daiei for ¥1500. It's black.

Quirky Boater Hat

It has been a while since I've posted! It has been too cold in my end of the island to go about my usual prancing around the house and trying on different outfits so I have completely neglected any posts since it got cold. :(
Temperatures have finally risen to double digits today!

Anyway my latest obsession is this:

A boater hat or a カンカン帽子. This one is from LOWRYS FARM.

It is so fun and quirky, I love it! The only problem is, I don't have a particularly good eye for style so I've been trying it with random outfits.
This is a polyvore collage the lovely Miss_igirisu made in honor of my hat!

This is how I wore it to work today:

Because the weather was so nice, I could finally bare some knees in these checked shorts and knee high socks!

This one is a white one I bought locally.

Tee hee hee!

My personal fashion icon

I realize this is my first time posting, but I did not want to waste my debut talking about myself. Instead I will be following in the footsteps of great posters before me and talk about my fashion icon. The man I model my current style on.

Andrew Dice Clay

Andrew Dice Clay circa 1980

Yes, Andrew Dice Clay is a crazy sexist and he is getting old. But, I love his style from the 1980s.
Here are some of my favorite looks:

Ride Hard

Neck Chain

I love clothes with tough and masculine details without being too "hardcore" Andrew Dice Clay managed to do very masculine and sexy looks, and still looked sophisticated. While I could never be as sexy or many as he was in the 80's, I find this style inspirational.
