Slanted. Angled. Twisted. Distorted.
Though the boyish lines of my clothes are a blunt contrast to the soft feminine style of many a Tokyo lady, I told myself that my cement shade outfit befitting of the urbanscape of Tokyo. I also told myself that there is nothing wrong with attempting to resemble a building. I don't take myself very seriously.

Harsh contrasts appeal to my nature and red lipstick is a favourite way to stain colour continuity. This particular one is Tom Ford's Cherry Lush.
Tokyo is a city of great heights and one can spend much time just looking upwards at the masses of concrete pinnacles. A great way to distort your balance.
Speaking of distortion....
....The newly opened Tokyu Plaza in Omotesando/Harajuku, designed by Hiroshi Nakamura is an impressive feature to look at. The faceted mirrored entrance draws you in and then morphs you into a glossy kaleidoscope. I enjoyed this bit of playful architecture so much that I would have happily spent the rest of my afternoon going up and down the escalators. Due to this fact, I haven't a clue as to what shops are actually in the plaza. :)
