It is a gorgeous summer morning in Akihabara, Tokyo’s Electric Town, where you can find gadgets, collectibles, and cafes. Akihabara is also the home of @home café, and its President is Hitomi. Coincidentally, what we celebrate as Independence Day weekend is her weekend off. I can think of many things to do on this weekend, but no matter how I shuffle the list, the top two things are dressing up and shopping.
Koi Koi Floral Cards dress in black is a popular outfit from Metamorphose. The first release of the dress quickly sold out as potential customers tried to get their hands on one.
At JFashionista, we have an unhealthy obsession with purses. Thanks to Gucci, this XL Leather Tote is boldly edgy, chic, and provides the much needed room for shopping.
Metamorphose says the print was inspired by the traditional Japanese game Koi Koi Cards (Hanafunda). The focus is on a traditional bodice, reminiscent of a lovely Kimono.
When in Tokyo, shopping in Akihabara and visiting @Home Cafe is a must. Follow Hitomi on Twitter @jjhitomin
