*Sigh* I'm now officially back in Australia. Leaving, I felt like I was five years old as I couldn't keep from dissolving into tears every time I looked around at my surroundings and thought about how much I would miss it. More than any place I've ever been, I feel like I really belong in Osaka and Tokyo. For one, I never feel like a weirdo walking down the street in whatever outfit I've chosen to wear that day, plus everyone is just so so nice. My Japanese improved a great amount just being there for a month, and I now feel like moving there one day, for a year or so, is a plausible option for my future.
Anyway, enough of that - this is an incredible vintage dress that I bought from Shimokitazawa (the best suburb in Tokyo - please visit if you're ever there) for $10, and these pictures were taken in Yokohama, which is just outside of Tokyo - and a billion thanks to Ron from Dresses on a Clothesline for being our virtual guide to Yokohama city!

I am going to be doing loads of posts over the next few days! (I still have a number of outfits from Japan that I have yet to blog about!) Thanks for being patient with my less-than-frequent posts whilst I was travelling.
I'm still pretty tired from the aeroplane so I'm just going to leave you with an awesome link as my science post today. After being featured on the Scientific American's Incubator blog (which was really, really exciting), I discovered a blog called The Molecular Circus, a science blog whose posts include The Chemistry of Cake, How Alcohol Gets You Drunk and a regular feature called "Entropy Kitchen" which gives you a recipe and explains what's happening to your food on a molecular level while you make something delicious!
I hope that you're all super dooper well and happy!
