Red, Orange, Polka Dots


wearing
dress - "Baking Soda" (from Japan)
collar tips - Paddy's Markets
bag - Vintage
belt - Vintage
tights - Wholesale
shoes - ASOS

OH. EM. GEE. I am not wearing my boater hat. This is rare. Whenever I am taking photos I end up going "eeehhh this would look better with a boater hat" basically 99% of the time, but I stopped myself for reaching for my hat today! What do you think of my naked head ;)? Haha.

This dress is close to my favourite dress ever. I got it in Japan and wore it out to a music performance that night, so whenever I wear it I am flooded with memories of Tokyo. Ahh, I want to go back to Japan so badly. Can you all please make my blog super famous so I can go back over there on a... fashion... trip or something? Pleeeease? Just tell all your friends and your friends friends about me, maybe make some posters with my face on it and put them up around your town. Or you could even hire an aeroplane to write my blog URL in the sky. Just some ideas, guys. Then I can be famous, and go back to Japan. Pretty please with sugar on top? Thanks :)

Hope you're all having a marvelous Sunday! And enjoying watching the olympics too, possibly. I was of the "I'm so not going to watch the olympics it's sooo boring and a waste of money bleh bleh" crowd, but this morning I basically bit off all my nails watching the women's weightlifting finals and burst into tears when the Japanese contestant got a silver medal (because her dad was her coach and previous bronze metal winner and she made him so proud haha). Sooo yeah. I've changed my mind. The olympics is kind of the best ever. (Mum, I know you're reading this. So shuush, okay.)

  7. A) You look great.

    B) Did you visit a cat cafe in japan? I am OBSESSED with them. Even looked into opening one in Melbourne and was told there is no way I can have food/drink and cats in the same space. :(

    1. No! I didn't! I didn't know they existed :( Not until ages afterward I saw a video about them, and I was so sad I didn't go to one!
      Wow! That sucks I would have loved to go! Stupid strict Australia OH&S rules.

  11. I recently bought a blue straw hat with flowers in and now I am wearing it literally every day so I understand the boater-addiction. All my recent blog photos are wearing this new hat! But you do have the most gorgeous hair underneath.

    You should totally watch the opening ceremony. It has children's literature and folk music and James Bond and Mr Bean. Seriously it rocks. (I did a review of it on my blog actually because I felt like the ceremony was perfectly for me. http://origamigirlheroics.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/in-which-origami-girl-reviews-opening.html if you are interested in further enthusiasm)

  12. aww you still look awesome even without the boater hat! Love your dress! I totally want to go to Japan too, and maybe visit Noto prefecture to find out if there are other people with the surname Noto(like mine) in there. Glad you're enjoying the Olympics! :)

  19. You can try doing vlogs in Japanese. Those who are studying and do vlogs as speaking practices get pretty good number of views especially if there's content. Maybe you can do vlogs of the fashion or DIY stuff which you are good at!

    Love your blog by the way!

  22. Could you possibly get any more freakin' adorable? I highly doubt it. Your dress. Your tights. Your hair. Your collar tips. Your bag. It's all so flawless. Those shoes of yours are beyond cute. I'm calling up the aeroplane company right now. **wink**

    May the force be with you.
