The return of Minnetonka

11 Sep

Damn you, Vivi magazine! This moccasin + loafer combination, which half a year ago I would have found ridiculous, is my current obsession. Minnetonka is surprisingly cheap…or maybe it is because of living in the UK that my concept of “expensive” has changed…

Etsy.com is the key to happiness #2: KIMONOS

And another reason why Etsy.com rules. PLAID KIMONOS.

They have other ones too, but the plaid one is the coolest. Here are some other cool kimonos on Etsy.com:

Oh. My. God. So in order to cure me of my Ebay obsession (it comes in huge, monstrous, money-devouring waves), my Swedish friend Johan suggested I look at Etsy.com. DAMN YOU JOHAN! They have the most AMAZING shit. A lot of it is vintage and/or actually 100% UNIQUE designs CREATED by normal people!!!! I am a poor student only becoming progressively poorer. Look at how they feed my plaid obsession:

Lumberjack Fashion

24 Feb

I think of late the Japanese are into something I will call Lumberjack Fashion. This includes trapper hats, plaid dresses and moccasins. I was scoffed at by a Korean friend at the Wudaokou Fuzhuang Shichang in Beijing (more on that later: You will thank me when I tell you) when I attempted to buy a plaid dress. She laughed, “That was a trend in NINETIES Korea, ha ha ha.” Whatever, Minji. It was cool then, and it is cool now. 😉

If I could fit in Asian clothing I would have bought that dress, paired it with my black moccasins, and laughed all the way back home on the plane. Picture below courtesy of Stylehive.com.

OMG I F*ing Love Minnetonka

So moccasins are all the rage in Japan right now, and I am jumping on the bandwagon–the Japanese are on to something. MOCCASINS ARE THE SHIT!!!

During my visit to Hawaii I saw two Japanese girls wearing Minnetonka moccasin boots and it forced me to spaz out and buy a pair even though that means I won’t have enough money to eat next month. My new shoes:

My new boots

I don’t care and now I want to buy these ankle boot moccasins:

…Because moccasins are too rad for words. Thank you, Vivi magazine, Cawaii magazine and Japan, for bringing this to my attention.
