I went out to play at the nearby shrine. It is by no means as impressive as the big famous ones, but it offers the luxury of breathing in the atmosphere of a sacred place undisturbed by anyone else, except for a few local cats here and there.
I haven't worn anything colourful for ages, I'm simply not in the mood, but I love the material this mint skirt is made from, so it shines brightly in my monochrome wardrobe alongside my long red CdG coat. To balance the layering and texture clash of the skirts (and the graphic eyeliner), I kept the rest casual and simple - a white T-shirt, a white bandana, white socks, and white sneakers. I made most of the pictures black and white (here I go talking about colour), because I like how they feel simultaneously old and new... A while ago I had a really interesting conversation about Shōwa men combining their Japanese yukatas with Western boots and such, which I find quite fascinating. (Not that you could see Shōwa men walking around in a pair of Air Maxes, so much for historical accuracy.)
