About time!

     Look what finally popped back up on Forever 21 (well the Japanese site anyways):
Super cute. But so NOT a "dress."
     Though not quite as cute as its shorter blouse cousin that was all over the top style blogs last year, I still love it... and let's be honest, the blouse version would have probably been way too short to wear with anything other than a pencil skirt (interesting cultural side note: despite having no problem wearing short as f*ck skirts/shorts with racy thigh-highs, Japanese girls do not bare their midriff, unless they're at the beach. No exceptions).
     But I refuse to call this thing a "dress" as F21 has deemed it. I mean seriously, the minute this chick moves or sits down, hello wardrobe malfunction! So let's call a spade a spade: it's a tunic, F21, mmmmkay? But whatever, they can call it a dress as long as I get my hands on it. It actually popped up on the site last fall, but when I tried to order it the site had some sort of malfunction and it didn't get stored in my cart. When I tried looking for it again, it had mysteriously disappeared. But this time, no problem. It may be short enough on me to wear under certain skirts, which would be great for work, and it will look fantastic over dark blue super skinnies as well. I hope the fit is not too billowy, because I'm not a fan of belting, but I think it'll be okay. Another nice, versatilve (and cheap!) new piece for spring.

And, as a completely non-fashion related PSA:
     I love clothes, but I love video games just as much. And I game exclusively on the PS3. As you may have heard, the PlayStation Network got hacked recently and everybody's personal data was comprised. Now it's not super dire (yet) since it's not confirmed if they got anyone's payment info (and even if they did, they wouldn't have the security code needed to use it), unless they of course also got access to e-mail accounts or accounts with other merchants that DO store such detailed info. Luckily I'm not a big PSN user and my PSN password is a one-off (i.e. not used for other services/accounts) but if any of you happen to have PSN accounts that DO use one of your favorite passwords, best change it for all other accounts ASAP just to be on the safe side! I'm pretty sure this hacker just broke into the PSN for fame/glory/ego-boosting/to stick it to the man, not to go to town with anybody's info ('cause if he got caught, he'd be in deep you-know-what), but still, what a douche. 


  1. Hahaha....lovely dress but I agree with you that a more accurate name would be tunic! I just found your blog...having fun reading your insights from Toyko :) Followed you!
