soaking up style...
Japanese sewing books!
I have had this desire to travel back to Japan
ever since my wonderful experience
at the Nagoya airport.
Well, as luck would have it,
I stayed in Japantown this time.
I had been here before, but not spent much time,
so it was nice to have a few free moments to look around.
For quite some time I had wanted to go to Kinokuniya Bookstore
thanks to this post by Victoria
and seeing countless Japanese sewing books on other blogs.
I just LOVE the aesthetic of almost anything Japanese.
coolest magazine ever!
My favorite thing?
Japanese women's bicycle magazine Mint of course!
I would have scooped it up had it not been over $20,
but I had a lovely time soaking up the style and enjoying
the fun layouts inside.
There were also quite a few other bicycling magazines
to peruse - so much fun!!!
Some day I will make it to Japan again,
but for now this mini trip
worked wonders on my empty tank
filling me up with countless inspirations.
