Lost Toes

Written by: Zanita Whittington

I’m breathing a sigh of relief right now as I finally post a well overdue outfit picture – though it isn’t even todays outfit and apologies for the poor quality. It’s me hanging out in Tokyo airport while I was walking around killing time. Thankfully it wasn’t all that chilly in Tokyo, maybe 8 degrees… unlike london which feels like about minus 45 (thinking its a bit warmer than that). I had a restless nights sleep from all the flying and the changing of timezones and ended up journeying to Oxford Circus by 9am on account of being wide awake at a ridiculous hour of the morning. I had a few errands to run, getting a sim for my new Iphone (yay!) and aquiring some warmer leather gloves and some thermal socks. The pleasant surprise for the day was my old flatmate and one of my best friends arrived in town from his months of globetrotting and I got to hang with familiar face and have a bit of a pub crawl. I wore rubber heeled boots and long socks and somehow didnt manage to feel my toes again for about eight hours. It boggles my mind how people cope with the chill – I saw a girl at the bus stop this morning wearing ballet flats and no socks! I would sure lose toes if i tried to pull a stunt like that… theres only so far I’m willing to go for fashion (it’s still pretty far).
The leather jacket pictured was a gift from my close friends Susie and Rachel (see pics in further back) and I’m completely obsessed with it so it will be featuring plenty more in upcoming posts.
