@Shantaebuku she's one of my faves:
One of my best Sundays this month was a wide open sunny one spent walking around Shimokitazawa, which I’m going to hate myself for describing as the Williamsburg of Tokyo but there it is. Just two subway stops from my Shibuya safety zone, this area is a complete requirement for anyone visiting the city. It’s full of tiny alleyways and things that charmingly look like they’re going to collapse and everything that you want to decorate your home with except it’s too pointy for suitcase transport. Make sure to visit Village Vanguard because they sell everything your subconscious has thus far failed to will into existence. I carried the Goyard tote I got in Paris to fill up with my purchases and wore a mock necked nude dress from The Dayz Tokyo whose shop in Laforet I weirdly visited multiple times. All about the simple silhouette and the ease with which it can be dressed down.
