Basically Basic


"A biker jacket brings out the cool side of a woman without having to own a Harley"

I have been on the hunt for a pair of strappy flats which is versatile enough to bring an outfit from lunch dates to office meetings. Comfy enough to run the world yet stylish enough to grab attention. This cost ¥800 and I wear size XL. We were actually shocked by how shoe sizing goes from S to XL. Is this normal in Japan or is it just GU??

Before I start rambling on how beautiful Hozenji Yokocho was, I wanna thank my supportive (and gorgeous!!) bestie who took all of my outfit pictures with patience and love. Without her I'd be struggling with stacked up rocks and arranging trash cans.

Temperature dropped to 18°C just past mid-afternoon and the air started to get chilly. Went back to basics with a T, highwaisted jeans and faux leaather biker jacket. Finished off the look with a gold choker and some sassy flats. Both the gold choker and flats are from GU, a popular fast fashion brand in Japan. We aren't advocates of fast fashion by all means but this pair of faux leather flats was love at first sight.
