Maryvonne Wellen is the artist, and I know her from Tokyo in 2011 where we were room mates at Sakura house guesthouse in Komazawa Daigaku.

She is a designer from Düsseldorf, Germany and she had come to study design in Tokyo.

I watched her make jewlery then and I saw she had something special, with her designs and materials.

Her website finally opened just recent and I had to order!

The necklace and earrings are from her Approximation serie!

Japanese traditionally footwear

Geta? Tabi? Zori?

20131211-112343 fm.jpg

Me, I love the Geta-style footwear, because of the wood but also the style, both traditionally and fashion.

Here is some info about them:

Geta
This is used for protecting your feet, from water etc on the ground. Its for practically use and woman have oval forms and men have rectangular.

Merchant’s Geta
This ones have higher teeths
and are practical when going to the market and dont want to get dirty on your feet from the water etc. (My personal favourites)

Okobo (Geta)
These are used mostely of geisha-in-training, also called maiko. The red stripes mean that she is a newbi. 😉

Zori
This is slightly more formal and are used when dressed in a kimono. Geta-styles is used dressed in yukata (which is a summerwear).

Tabi
This is socks that separate your big toe from the other 4. These are seen beeing used with all these traditional footwear. (And also makes it much more comfy I might add 😉 )

Jika-Tabi
These are like the Tabi socks, but with rubber soles. This is used as a regulare shoe. (I’ve got a pair Of converse made in Jika-tabi). Love them and they are not so uncomfy as they might appear.

I ♥ ⛄️(雪)

Snow, beautiful snow❗️
My favourite time of year is spring (cherryblossoms and hanamiparties) but when snow covers everything in its white sparkeling coat, I feel like beeing in a magical world.

Even better is if you have some shoes that leaves cute marks when you walk,
like these I got from my favourite (oh well, ONE of my favourite shops) at Cat Street in Harajuku!
Tokyo Bopper

These ones leave this pretty marks in the snow:
