How to: Budget fashion in Tokyo aka lookbook vol.2

I have said it many times, but I’ll say that again — Japanese summer is hot. Add humid to it and you’ll get tons of sweat and messy hair. Be ready: your hair will look like a bird’s nest and your carefully applied makeup will melt off of your face.  I tried to look decent in this weather, I really did. Did I succeed? My daily struggle with frizzy hair didn’t help me here, so be understanding.

Anyway! Here I present you my eight cheap outfits for July. I am not very happy with them, since this summer I replaced trying to be fashionable with trying to survive the heat.

  1. Love your style! Japan is really good for cheap yet cute clothes! I really liked number 8, but that’s mostly because I’m a sucker for stripes 😛
