And then I looked down at what I was wearing and laughed and laughed. Why? Because I am probably the last person on the planet qualified to offer fashion commentary.
None-the-less, in the next few days whenever I was out on the town, I tried to pay attention and "notice" fashion. Here's what I noticed: Lots of face masks. Surgical masks...On little old ladies, on bus drivers, on store clerks, on little kids.
That's about all I noticed. (I live in the Rexburg, Idaho of Japan.)
I was baffled. And still not prepared to write a fashion post.
So I gave up and solicited my friend Katie for help. See, Katie knows what she's about.
Katie was my debate partner in 10th grade debate. She actually knew what she was doing. I had no clue. (I just liked the idea of arguing and getting school credit for it.)
***That year we went to San Francisco to compete at Berkley:
I sucked, Katie rocked. But boy was that a fun trip! ***
(Who knew I would end up living in San Francisco for four years?!? Not me.)
Recently, we reconnected via the wonderful world of Facebook. AND turns out, Katie lives in JAPAN! In Tokyo!!! And listen to this, before moving to Japan with her b0y-fri, (now fiancé) Kevin, (ALSO from my 10th grade debate class) she was a BUYER for BLOOMINGDALES in NYC!!!
Yep! So like I said: She know's what she's about. And she FINALLY wrote some fashion related posts on her blog with PLENTY of pictures! So please GO HERE! and enjoy a lesson on FASHION IN JAPAN!!!
