Boardwalk - Tokyo Bay and Odaiba

Sorry I haven't updated you guys for a few days on my trip, but I think I have a pretty good excuse, because this happened:
(I'm trying to look sad and forlorn here in order to score some sympathy points, haha).

So the "official" story is that my left foot got horribly and dramatically crushed by an entire circus that rode through town. Because that's a much more interesting story. (And I'm also looking forward to some comments from people have merely skimmed through this and think that's what actually happened.) However the real (and boring) story is that I have inflamed tendons and wasn't able to walk for a few days, due to me being over-enthusiastic about exploring all of Tokyo on my first day here. Although it's been a lot more slow-going, luckily it hasn't stopped us doing too many things and we've still had some great days hanging out at bath houses and riding ferries and exploring the Trick Art Museum at Decks in Odaiba. And shopping, of course. So I've made sure not to not mope around, and look at this whole slightly-crappy situation more like this:
If you get what I mean. Anyway, I have a billion photos to share over the next few days of all the awesome places we've been exploring, so look out for them soon!

wearing:
sweater - Vintage
scarf - Shibuya 109
necklace - c/o Merrin & Gussy
tights - c/o Oasap
shorts - c/o Wholesale
socks - Vintage
beanie - my boyfriend's
shoes - Rubi Shoes

Here's a few pretty shots from Odaiba. It's a crazy, weird and wonderful place - the whole area is built on top of an artificial island and half the buildings are department stores or amusement parks of some sort. Highlights are a replica 1980s game arcade, a "Trick Art" Museum and an Edo theme-park onsen.
That's all from me today! Hope you're all well. Much love,

  3. hahaha oh man that stinks! Haha not gonna lie, it is kind of funny if you think about it. If that happened to me, I would have just laughed at the irony of it all. You still look super cute though! I hope it feels all better really soon!

  6. Oh that's the worst luck but so happy you are able to look on the bright side. I remember when I was younger I got a horrible sunburn in Croatia and it was really tricky trying to not let it spoil the occasion. Wow japan looks amazing; that astro boy is awesome, what on earth? And haha, yes, very sneaky of you trying to catch out those skim-readers. :D P.S. aren't you freezing!?!?

  12. Ouch - get well soon! That's unlucky about the rampaging travelling circus, you couldn't make these things up, eh ;) Your tights are incredible, by the way. Enjoy the rest of your trip, inflamed tendons or not.
