Souvenirs from retail heaven

..casio watch (inspired by vanillascented).. and a large stack of japanese magazines and books (more about those later)..

You think I'd go all the way to Japan to not shop? I don't think so! I'm still in complete awe of the selection in well, everything you can possibly imagine. And just as exciting, actually witnessing the matching buying power - especially in these troubled times, actually it didn't seem that the customers could be bothered thinking about financial meltdown at all. Life's too short and there are plenty of unbought Gucci bags out there! Right? Not that Gucci is really my thing, I actually ended up buying mostly pieces of Japanese origin (and my Visa card is still hurting)..

thank you, all of you :)
@ mette, actually i was quite surprised of the price level out there. clothing-wise it's very much the same as here in DK, maybe a bit cheaper, but living costs in general seemed lower than here as well.. :)

Mette, something tells me I should visit your blog more often than I do but everything's so pretty, I adored all your Tokyo entries and I'm posting here because your CDG and Zucca purchases are too good to pass on. hope is all well!, miss you. Claudia A.
