Saturday was one of the few really warm days in Sweden. This allowed me to wear a real summer dress and spend all day outdoors in the city.
I bought this dress from one of the most popular shops in Tokyo, Uniqlo. It is said that Uniqlo is the H&M of Japan. I’ve always loved maxi dresses, but the ones I pick up in Sweden are usually way too long, although I am not short. This maxi dress from Japan fit me so well that it has the perfect length (maybe a bit shorter than a regular maxi dress, but I liked it).
The actual catch of this outfit is the bag. I also bought this fabric from Japan. It was one of the many beautiful patterned fabrics in Raak shop in Kyoto. I have learned that Raak has been producing cotton fabrics with traditional patterns for over 400 years. Furoshiki is the name of this traditional wrapping cloth. When Japanese people used their folding talent on a piece of cloth, the result was very creative! This fabric I bought is in a square shape, and I ended up with a bag by following one of the instructions they gave to me to use the cloth in different ways. Isn’t it a beautiful bag?
Outfit: Raak fabric Furoshiki bag, Swedish Hasbeens sandals, Uniqlo maxi dress.
