While packing for my recent holiday in Japan I thought, this is the perfect time to pull out that tulle skirt I’ve yet to wear. I purchased it around October of last year thinking I would wear it for New Year’s Eve but, I went with a different look.
So while on holiday, I decided to take a day for myself. I slept in late and a co-worker/friend came over to our hotel to hang out for a few hours. She wanted to see what my American style was like and so we went through my closet. She fell in love with this one skirt and I don’t blame her. First thing she said while ripping it off the rod….. Sex In The City!
I just stood there laughing. Then said, wait a minute, over in Harajuku all the girls wear tulle. She politely told me, the look isn’t the same. The tulle is pink or another vibrant color and styled very differently. My response, good point. I told her of my love for The Arts, how I minored in classical ballet in college, how once a week I student teach at BAE back in New York City and that tulle/tutu’s are in my blood. I was also sure to be polite when I informed her that several designers sent tulle down their spring 2013 runways. Naturally that caused a new trend and why we see so many bloggers wearing them the last few seasons.
Around the 5th night in to our stay, it was the perfect time to pull out this skirt. A trip to the Tokyo Skytree and then off to a wonderful dinner.

Every time a girl looked at me, all that kept popping in to my mind was, are they thinking I’m trying to be Carrie Bradshaw in Tokyo (instead of Paris). Then I thought, does it really matter? Nahhhhh
The Tokyo Skytree is a vision even before you step foot inside.
The Skytree is the tallest structure in Japan and in the world, reaching 2,080 ft. as of March 2011. The tower is the primary television and radio broadcast site for the Kantō region.
As to be expected, the views from the top were breathtaking. These photos don’t do it justice.
