A riot of pattern seen in a black and white almost zebra print dress with black trim and black and white polka dot pumps. Nice contrast with the shock of red hair--love this! Also like the black print men's vest with black shorts, black belt and sunglasses, black shoes. Tattoo accents. Nice.
"They had some crazy sale and while everything was still out of my budget, I enjoyed the free refreshments and this couple's outfit."
"The plaid jumper was $4 from Ohio Thrift.
Retrocat Vintage has a tin of jumbled belts where I found this $2 belt off a dress I've never seen.
I was, yet again, caught without a scarf when I bought the $7 red cashmere scarf I'm using as a shrug.
The red patent shoes are Hot Kiss, and the purse was from a garage sale."

CITY : Tokyo
LOCATION : Harajuku
OCCUPATION : Graphic Designer
AGE : 27
Tattoo - NA - JPY 25,000
I thought this tattoo was really cool and different from any other tattoo I saw before. The person wearing it is a graphic designer and designed the tattoo herself. I found her on Cat Street in Harajuku.

Not quite "on the street," but definitely interesting. Will probably see the movie today~
The tattoo tales of 'Inkheart's' makeup designer(Los Angeles Times)
Jenny Shircore has an uncanny ability to make people's faces read like books. On the set of director Iain Softley's new fantasy adventure "Inkheart," Shircore created hundreds of intricately lettered facial tattoos to signify that certain characters in the film had been brought to life from the pages of works of literature.
Born in India during the days of the British Raj to an Armenian father and a French mother, Shircore moved to England at the age of 10. As a child, she loved doing her friends' hair, so she went to study at the London College of Fashion. "My first thought was to travel, and ... Read more...(Los Angeles Times)

Michelle Obama is wearing a sparkling gold sheath dress with matching coat by Cuban-born American designer Isabel Toledo on the day of her husband's inauguration as president.
Barack Obama is wearing a red tie and white shirt with his suit.
Toledo, who just a few years ago unsuccessfully tried to infuse more modern style into the venerable Anne Klein label, is considered among the more avant-garde U.S. designers.

I like the look, and the photo. Here's what the photographer had to say:
www.jasperswardrobe.com for more gender and fashion blogging
I am so happy with the bicycle shorts and tights combo. It is very strange. I have been doing this combo with different colors all over town and it does not elicit any trans phobia that i am aware of. It is much less controversial than the tights and hotpants combo. even though it is more body hugging. I think it conveys the semiotic of guy shorts, even though it might as well be body paint. I feel sexy and I get a lot of attention from both queer and straight girls as well as no hate from straight men. In a way, I feel I have achieved the kind of sexy gender ambiguity that I originally aimed for.
Love the pants
I absolutely LOVE the playing card motif on the pants. Oh, and the whole arm warmer/leg warmers on the lolita who is sitting down.
I know such fashions would be unusual in Canada but I really love it. I can see myself bringing stuff like this back to Canada, just for the heck of it. :)
I love how Japanese fashion is so flexible. I hate how North American fashion seems to focus on what's "cool", and conformity. :\
