in welcoming september - for me, a month signifying transitions into long term hibernation. engaging our inner powers for plans of blossoming for far-away spring.
in honour of entry into Virgo constellation, i want to feature my travels in tokyo. a city that captured me completely. a city that emobodies virgo-ism: intentional, functional, thoughtful, streamlined to perfection.
i had a short stopover in tokyo last fall 2012. the way people dressed and styled themselves really elevated me into a whole new level of appreciation for this art form of dressing oneself.
what was striking to me is some of the gender androgyny i observed. it's so refreshing to have the walls of binary gender presentations collapse even if just for a moment.
get lost with me...
