The dress to me has such a japanese, geisha vibe, it’s so beautiful with all the flowers and really matches the flowers in the gardens. It also really reminds of the one Pushing Daisies episode where they visit the Sushi/Poker place. It’s one of my favourite episodes dress-wise. And Miss Fisher sometimes goes for Asian (inspired) dresses, as well and they always look gorgeous. But, to be honest, I think japanese fashion – be it traditional or modern is very intersting. Of course, that’s also because it’s quite different from western fashion with the prints alone. But too, with the cuts, they are very distinct.
I never really got into Lolita, though I think it’s a beautiful fashion style. Of course, as someone who has never been to Japan, I can only rely on the feeling I get from travel diaries and documentaries, but I feel like in the big cities at least, people tend to dress much more diverse than in most cities in Europe/US. You can draw a lot of inspiration from Japanese Brands and Street Fashion photographs and I love seeing the influences on western culture as well, to me that’s one of the pros of the internet that we can see what people in other countries like and get inspired by the way they stye certain things.
About a month ago, when there was a lot of snow here, where I live, my mum and I went out to take some photos, have a cup of tea and enjoy the wintery air. We did not know that there was a butterfly exhibition at our local botanical garden, but since we really enjoy these things and we were strolling atound the garden, we decided to have a look. And we were not disappointed, the butterflies and moths living there are flying around and eating and it’s such a lovely, calm atmosphere even though there obviously are quite a few kids.
