Now for something a little different this festive season (which was almost like a present in itself), I’m extremely pleased to report my first magazine feature! A few months ago I was contacted by a photographer representing the Japanese magazine Sweet, which I’d heard of through previous Japan Centre and Kinokuniya visits, and was asked to style up one item in three different ways. I chose my bargain €4 skirt bought whilst I was in Berlin since it’s in my preferred shade of red and I know it’s pretty versatile. The photos were taken during a flying Sunday visit to busy Brick Lane and it was tricky to remain focused (especially when a group of blokes tried to get into one of the shots) and even pretend to speak on the phone! I believe this page is from the December issue and unfortunately I haven’t managed to get a copy yet as I missed the issue in store (the lovely Elizabeth Lau managed to tear out the page during her recent visit to Japan) so I’d be grateful if anyone could help with this or a translation!
I hope that everyone has had a fantastic Christmas so far! Luckily my last-minute presents went down well and I’ve received a bit of money to put towards some of the items from my list plus a few extras. As per usual most things have been ordered online and after the initial moment of excitement, it’s now time for me to wait and try not to buy anything else in the meantime!
