*Tokyo Dreamin* you probably have already noticed, im a little obsessed with Japan, and all things related! Having been there 3 times in the past 2 years, and starting to stew up the plans for my next visit (shhhhh dont tell Trent!), I revisited some of my travel photo albums today, and this photo made me very envious of the ace vintage fashion finds in Tokyo, especially around the Harajuku area... We were just having a little stroll through Yoyogi Park, and noticed a lot of awesome'ly dressed teenages heading to a carpark with bags, suitcases and boxes of their unwanted of course we followed....boy did we follow!! And this is what happened within a couple of minutes...100's of piles of clothes, laid out on the ground of the carpark for anyone to rummage through and make an offer on... *Rummage*Rummage*Rummage*

If you're planning on going to Tokyo you should be able to find a few flea markets every weekend, and I promise they're worth the effort! Most of my finds cost just 100yen (and that is a whole lot cheaper than 'Savers' people!!) The biggest ones are held at Meiji Park, Shinjuku Chuo Park and yes also Yoyogi Park. There are also other flea markets near the Sunshine Building in Ikebukuro and near the Shinjuku Mitsui Building....
And on the topic of the ace'ness of Japanese fashion...check out these lovely little photo's by Hakan Photography.....Geeeeeeeeeez I love Japan! xx
