>> This is just a short post to check-in and say “I’m in Tokyooooooooo and I’m happy as larry, wearing Tsuuuuuuuuuumoriiiiiii Chisatooooooooooooo!!!”  That is exactly how I say Tsumori Chisato in my head.  Just to illustrate that I’ve shoved a sound file here so you can hear how I’m saying it in my head…

My first real pit stop in Tokyo inevitably revolves around the happiness-inducing wonder that is Tsumori Chisato and her illustrations that grace her clothes.  This dress from the S/S 12 tropical/jungle infested collection is the perfect representation of why my face lights up whenever I am in Tokyo.  I am one big giant ball of squeal, whenever I am in a Tsumori Chisato store and thankfully the shop girls are far too polite here to even think of smirking at me and instead share my enthusiasm by repeating “Kawaii” repeatedly.   What else is there to say about a silk scarf dress that features criss cross check formation alligators and matching alligator-head cut-out straps?  Only in Tsumori’s world.

    Cute and caraaazy all at once. Does anywhere in the UK stock Tsumori? I never see her stuff anywhere. Maybe gay Paree?
    “I am one big giant ball of squeal” – I heart you.

    It Looks like you really are having great fun their. i am super jealous! I heard of my friends mentioned how polite and agreeable the japanese shop assistants are and didn’t quite believe it, but it seems true and it’s brilliant since I suppose this positive support will help the customers to be not afraid to discover their hidden self.
    I will need to go to Tsuuuuuuuuuumoriiiiiii Chisatooooooooooooo asap since they are just too cute to miss.
