(Daiso Japan plastic umbrella, Revlon 'Really Red' Lipstick, Comme Ca Ism coat from Tokyo)
Despite ridiculously poor weather conditions yesterday, we ventured out into the cold to try and get good photo of this black suede fur lined coat (which ben thinks makes me look russian). We didn't have too much luck (although I don't mind the grainy quality of this photo), but how cute is this umbrella I got from Daiso Japan for just $2.80! While I was in Japan, I had a similar one.. or twelve, (since holding on to things that aren't surgically attached to my being has never been my strong point.)
Commonplace in Japan; the transparent plastic umbrella, (despite being kinda cool and futuristic) is very practical when running across busy intersections like Shibuya Crossing (a 5 minute walk from where I was staying). It enables you to bustle your way through the crowd with 100% vision thus greatly reducing accidents caused by a phenomenon I call 'umbrella-blindness'. Very handy when it's snowing and one hundred plus people are careering towards you in true stampede style.
