In October, I met with bestie Fanny, whom I hadn't seen in years. The Fanny² were finally back together. We were both wearing orange without planning it in advance (see last picture).
We met on my old cégep campus, and I got to revisit a place I had not seen since 2007, the year I graduated. It was a strangely cathartic experience since my time there is mainly associated with bad memories.
My outfit (you will start seeing pieces repeat thanks to my current capsule wardrobe)
Cardigan: second-hand Emily Temple Cute
Jacket : second-hand Mary Magdalene
Beret: old Lauren Ralph Lauren
Shoes, belt and glasses: thrifted
Brooches and earrings: a variety of different artists whose social media I do not know (the leaves on the beret were thrifted though)
Tights: Heattech by Uniqlo
Back in September, Mia came home to finally twin our Amour d'amants, after over 5 years of talking about it (mainly because I was going to sell mine). It was definitely too hot and rainy for that outfit, so we changed immediately after to comfy dresses to drink wine and have late lunch (that I call lupper).
Skirt: Juliette et Justine
Belt/corset (no real boning): second-hand Sheglit
Blouse: second-hand Axes Femme
Jewellery: mainly vintage
Retro Yamanashi in September

Orange scarf: vintage wafuku
Bag: second-hand Fint
Shoes: old Cobb Hill (rip)

Jumping over a few outfits because this picture was quicker to edit. It was the last time I saw Iona and Mia before leaving Japan. We went to @andbeer_koenji and @jules_verne_coffee in Koenji.
Blouse: second-hand Excentrique
Beret, bag, shoes, belt: thrifted
Some late August Tachikawa shenanigans with Mia
In late August, the Kobe earl tea brand Catherine Tea had a soft cream fair in Tachikawa, and I used that as an excuse to go try some kissas on my list, but we kept being turned away (too full or just closed), so we ended up going to an old sobaya and a semi-old kissa that only had healthy drinks left on their menu.
Top: offbrand (??)
Cardigan : second-hand Emily Temple Cute
Ancre brooch: vintage
Crochet hat brooch on hat: I can't remember the artist
Shoes: Hush puppies
Bag: second-hand Métamorphose temps de fille
I rarely have pictures of me in front or inside kissaten because I usually visit them alone, but this time, I had Madeleine with me, and she did her best to take pictures with my DSLR despite the rain and extreme humidity. Je t'aime, ma guedaille préférée
Dress: vintage (I am guessing from the 40s? It's entirely transparent and I am wearing a separate slip under)
Hat: vintage (I can't guess the decade for sure; 40-50s from the weird shape)
Shoes: earth, music and ecology
Bag: Material Girl
