Seasons may change...

No internet makes no posts, I apologize.

The latest Tokyo fashion I failed to report during my absence is girls insisting on wearing fur items although it has temperatures between 30-35 degrees. The poor shop staffs have no choice if it is ordered but fur leg warmers , vests and shoes are not items you should even consider wearing in what still is severe summer heat. Following blindely a trend is ever so beautifully shown right now.
The other main autumn/winter trends are equally unimpressive, basically same as every year: fur, check, nordic,knit,leopard.(I even saw last years damiant prints in 109, recycling maybe?) Although nothing exciting going on in the main departments, nice interpretations like the "poodle knit" (for example in Vivi) make it worth checking out some shops. Also a softer, retro-based mode to classic style is what I like most of what can be currently found in magazines and shops.
Here an example from Vivi, badly photographed by me:

Anyway, rebellious me still lets the summer live as long as the summer wants to live, so some summerly interpretations of the Shibuya on a beach, Enoshima:

Oompa Loompas!(wrong spelling, right?)

Enoshima in the months of July and August is really a more sleezy, flirty Shibuya with the sea. With September all the beach houses go and you have more surfers and less party. It is still dirty though, be warned when you decide to take a walk on the beach without sandals.

First picture is also shot in Enoshima, but inside the aquarium. I wore my current favorite dress from Topshop that day which I got from my lovely parents who visited me in Tokyo last week. More on this and that later.
