Birthday Blouse and Red Jeans

110428
Yes, I'm pretending a punk.


5 days ago, I bought this red denim in Tokyo. As I had been wanting a bold and bright red pair of slim jeans, (I'm not sure if I was sober when the idea hit my brain though,) I was looking for some nice red-red denim in the Nippori fabric district. Despite my frantic search of it, I couldn't find any of red denim other than this dark punk glittery smelly fabric. Because I am a type of person who is very easy to be satisfied with alternative plans, I changed my mind happily and brought it home with a big smile.

And then, my smile grew even bigger when I got home, to find Hélène had sent me my birthday presents. Yes, it was my birthday! She sent me two pretty fabrics, some beautiful threads, and her love. The fabric for the blouse is one of her presents. Punk pants are also here for frightening you in the picture. I guess you are laughing at me thinking how quickly I used these fabrics. Never mind.


Have a good day!
