Tokyo shopping – Jeffrey Campbell wedges

Mine absolutte favoritsko lige nu er de her sorte ruskinds wedge sandaler med guldnitter fra den amerikanske designer Jeffrey Campbell. Selv om de er tårnhøje, er de voldsomt behagelige. Faktisk så behagelige, at jeg helt glemte at jeg havde højhælede på under et halvberuset bar-besøg, og var lige ved at vælte. De kostede omkring 900 kroner i Tokyo, og hvis jeg kender Jeffrey Campbell ret, så kunne de være inspireret af en dyrere designsko fra et andet mærke. Det lever jeg heldigvis i lykkelig uvidenhed om.

In English: These are my absolute favourite shoes right now, at least when it comes to high heels. The studded suede wedges from American designer Jeffrey Campbell are so comfy. In fact so comfy, that I completely forgot that I was wearing high heels one evening at a bar and almost fell over. I payed around 100 pounds for them in Tokyo, and they might be Jeffrey Campbell‘s more affordable version of an expensive designer shoe, as J.C. is known to venture into copy-cat territory.

New from H&M – Long black dress

H&M har også indtaget Japan. Jeg faldt over en af deres butikker i shoppingdistriktet Shinjuku en af de allersidste dage, og ville bare lige hurtigt stikke hovedet indenfor. Jeg endte alligevel med at forlade butikken med denne sorte, lange viscosekjole med bryderryg. (Fås også i sort/hvid stribet udgave). Den kostede kun omkring 80 kr., så budgettet blev heldigvis ikke væltet. Til gengæld er kvaliteten ikke i top, stoffet er super tyndt og halvgennemsigtig. Men jeg elsker lange kjoler og den lange silhuet for tiden, der er noget seriøst elegant over dem.

English: Swedish clothes empire H&M has also landed in Japan. I saw one of their shops in shopping district Shinjuku and just had to take a peek. No way was I going to buy anything…..ahem.  I came out with this long viscose dress and a black tube top to wear underneath. It was only around 8 pounds ( they sell them in H&M in London right now, in black + a black & white striped).  I’m so into long dresses at the moment and love the way they elongate your silhouette. I just wish the quality was better as the fabric is super thin and quite see-through.

Her er den i daglig brug, kombineret med jakke fra H&M og et par sorte lange snørestøvler fra L.K. Bennett (de er i det blødeste læder, og minder mig lidt om en luksusudgave af de Doc Martens støvler jeg gik med i gymnasiet, og jeg fandt dem ubrugte til 30 pund i genbrugsbutik i Chiswick).

English: Here I’m wearing it with a jacket from H&M and a pair of long laced-up leather boots from L.K. Bennett. They’re soft as butter, remind me of a luxury version of the Doc Martens boots I always wore in highschool, and were as good as new when I bought them for 30 pounds in a second hand-shop in Chiswick.
