I wanted to start showing you some of the gems I’ve collected during the past year and a half. Used/vintage clothing in Japan is pricey by South African standards, but then again, most things are. You’re usually paying for better quality, but no matter the price, it’s always a good idea to thoroughly check a used garment before you purchase it. I prefer shopping at second hand stores in bigger Japanese cities where the clothing is actual vintage or just outright crazy. This little red cape was a perfect addition to my early winter wardrobe, and I literally did a little happy dance when I got home and realised it was reversible.
