harajuku lovin’ and the bad luck continues…

so the curse of the charm continued this morning…

i left my wallet in the apartment this morning. my wallet has all my important things in it- money, train pass, keys, phone numbers… and so i was locked out of the apartment with no money or ability to go anywhere! i was totally bummed and am convinced that it was due to the fact that I didn’t buy that Peruvian charm. eventually someone let me in (once i promised myself that I’d go buy it) but there was a good half hour there where i feeling some voudoun.

ANYWAYS

Once I got my stuff I set off to the hipster shopping capital of Japan made famous by Gwen Stefani, Harajuku.

I must say, it gets more and more entertaining each time… and i snagged some really good vintage stuff for really cheap. I got an amazing black cashmere(?) sweater for approx $25 and some gray leather boots for $19. and more small stuff, including the charm…finally.

peace, love and...this reminded me of billy, haha.
