AnnikaVictoria 's Thoughts:

Wow. So I made the discovery while on my trip to Japan last month that their vintage stores are absolutely incredibly amazing beyond-belief. This is why:

1. Everything is an amazing quality. Japan must have some seriously trendy grannies because the quality of clothing is fantastic. You don’t have to turn the place upside down to find just 1 or 2 okay vintage pieces – basically every piece on the racks is good. The only hard part is choosing what to buy!
2. Everything is my size! No more searching through endless size 18s and 20s. Japanese people are small and so are their clothes, so everything fit me!
3. Everything is well priced. Well, half the stores were “boutique” and very expensive, but the other half were very well priced, such as the 390 yen and 780 yen stores (that’s about $5 and $9). There were also loads of sales.
4. They are open late at night, which is fantastic if like me you don’t get out of bed until way past midday.

If you are seriously into vintage, you seriously need to consider going to Japan. The best suburbs for vintage are Shimokitazawa, Harujuku and Koenji in Tokyo, and Namba in Osaka. This particular photo was taken in Fukushima in Osaka (not THAT Fukushima by the way). My suitcase literally split at the seams trying to lug all these clothes back but it was completely worth it! There will be more photos up from Japan asap!
