And that’s what I did the other day, with my newly acquired Jika – Tabi shoes I got from Ebay! Have you ever heard of tabi shoes before? They look bizarre don’t they? Some people commented they look like hooves, others were just perplexed and looked at me like I am crazy and it didn’t matter explaining that they are actually quite common in Japan. That’s right, they’re actually common work shoes in the land of the Rising Sun! They were invented in the 20th Century but were modeled after the traditional tabi socks, that divide and separate the big toe from the rest of its toe brothers. In case you are wondering, they are quite comfortable but would be best worn with tabi socks underneath, not tights like I did.
I was so happy to finally receive the shoes that I wanted to wear them the next day so quite unusually, I planned my outfit the previous night and drew it on the computer:
That was fun, I should do it more often! And this is what it looked like in real life:
And the details are…. *drumroll* : Bauble hat – Neiman Marcus collection for Target (on sale), Peplum Skirt – Ebay, Navy Top – Joules, thrifted on my trip to Stamford, Tights – Primark, Tabi Shoes – Ebay
I’m linking this up to Patty’s Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style as there’s nothing more inconspicuous than a strange pair of footwear.
