Things in Tokyo and at work are not quite back to normal, everything and anything seems to be operating on a limited scale (though getting significantly better each day). We haven't really left our immediate neighborhood at all, but tomorrow if things keep improving we will prob run some important errands and eat out for lunch (soup curry yet again haha, hopefully this time WITHOUT the earthquake). And then on Thursday it's back to work and wearing my photo-worthy clothes, so OOTD will resume this week for sure. Amazingly, some things are still reliable as ever here in Tokyo, such as the delivery/postal services. I had ordered the amazing Golden Bubbles pencil skirt from J.Crew (can't believe it was only like $50... the original price was practically three times that!) a week or so ago, and it arrived promptly on time this morning. Though the delivery guy scared the beejesus out of us when he thundered up the stairwell at like 9am and pounded on our door without calling out that he was making a delivery (which is standard practice in Japan). I LOVE it, but was surprised to find that waist on the 6 was a tiny bit big on me, so I guess this means that J. Crew skirts run big? I had expected a snugger fit, but nope. Which is fine by me, since I plan to tuck a turtleneck in and the rest of the skirt is rather form fitting, so it's a good balance.
This hermetic life has also led me to browse all of our favorite on-line retailers...just looking, I promise! No buying. So many lovely things out there though...sigh.

And if anyone knows what song the title of this post is lifted from, gold star! Hint: it was sung by both Donovan and Joan Baez way back in the 60s.
