fashion advice needed...

The other week when I was hanging out looking cool in Kichiyoji- Ok, sitting on a bench zonked out from sleep deprivation- I was amazed at the fashion. So elegant, so cool, so out there, so chic so very un-farmer!

Fashion around here is pretty simple. Jeans and something is pretty much the standard wardrobe for most people. And we tend to be a little (just a little) behind the latest trend. As an example a Tokyo mum was giving advice on clothing for graduation and said that 'noone wears corsages anymore'. So I didn't. But a lot of women did. Made me smile.

Anyway, so I am not exactly up there with the latest trends and maybe this is The Next Big Thing. I don't think so, but what would I know, right?

I know one thing though- I won't be rocking this particular item around the mean streets of Azusagawa in the near future.

As my beginner students are wont to say: "And you?"

Zipper tape is easy to mold and combine into any shape your heart desires.

Need a close up? Why sure!


Yes. You sew a whole whack of zippers together into a natty necklace!

Perfect for Mother's Day.

In the small picture it looks like she has snakes around her neck. Now THAT would be a very 'farmer' fashion statement!

Wait! NOW you tell me corsages are out of style!?!? I HATE corsages, but dutifully wore them to the entrance ceremonies feeling it was my duty as a mother (sort of like making cute bentos) to try to embarrass my daughters as little as possible (lot of good it does). At least I can go corsage-free to graduation in the spring and tell M it's the latest Tokyo fashion. Do I still have to buy a fluffy black dress?
