This was my second trip to Osaka and although this time I only stayed for 3 days (well, 2 really since we arrived there with bad jet lag!) it was so great to be able to visit again. I find it a nice balance between the craziness of busy Tokyo city and the more 'old-town' atmosphere of Kyoto.
I picked up this skirt in Topshop back in the UK over christmas and wore it quite a lot there and in Japan. After wanting a (faux) leather pleated or skater skirt for so long, I'm pretty happy with this purchase! It's already becoming a staple piece in my wardrobe. What staple pieces to you wish to add to your closet?
