Dream Catcher

Crinoline: Vintage
Sweater: Forever 21
Necklace:H&M
Hat: American Apparel
Tights: Hue
Boots: Jeffrey Campbell
Belt: Target

At the beginning of the year I mentioned some of my potential travel plans. At that time all it seemed to be  was a dream of places I would want to visit during my semester off.

I am happy to say that until now it looks as if the Japan trip along with London & Romania will be actually happening.
The Japan trip is the one I am the most exited about. It's a three week trip to Japan, where I will be visiting and studying Japanese language and culture at universities in Nagoya, Kyoto and Tokyo.
Tomorrow I am attending an info session on it at my school and as long as 9 more people sign up for it, this trip will be most definitely a GO!

Wow, that's like too good to be true... three weeks in Japan..Fingers crossed for the 9 more people to sign up! You'd be so lucky to go there (please take lots and lots of pictures and tell us everything :D).

I love the F21 sweater and how you used it to spice up the crinoline!

Hugs,

How exciting! I also dream to visit Japan and I expect you to write a lot about the trip so that I can live vicariously through you (I’m so keeping my finger crossed for the other 9 people to sign for this trip). You look gorgeous, the outfit is unexpected and the pendant is super beautiful. Plus I’m in love with the hat, belt and skirt. Kisses:)

Mina, you are astounding me with your especially creative and original outfits as of late. You're one of the most fearless girls I know when it comes to fashion, so bravo for that!

I can't wait til the cherry blossoms come out so we can get together for our Spring shoot-- though I wish it could be done in Japan with the trees there! :)

Also, I'm super jealous of all the trips you are going on. When will you be in London? I'll be there in May for a few days!

Hope school is treating you will this semester. Talk soon!

Mina! this is such a fabulous outfit. you never disappoint! and i really liked the previous one with the turban. totally reminds me of Paul Poiret's influence in fashion when he brought East to the West.
