SpY_Agent*_wannabe!

" Feeling like a spy on the train ride!
Perhaps the famous spy Mata Hari
or...one of my fantasies--- The Bond Girl!!! "
(shhhhh......)
...I was clicking my tiny camera & captured some intriguing images(top secret!) for all of you to share... LENORENEVERMORE (agent 0069! that's my IQ by the way!!! ~hee*) was on the 'Bullet Train' to Osaka...All the rest of the passengers think I was a nut-case! oooh-ahhh...this is what being a spy agent must feel like! I think I watched too much 'espionage/spy' movies growing up!!! Anyway the train ride was quite smooth & super fast! I grabbed this Japanese Magazine at the station to read on the 2 hours train ride...errr NO I don't read any Japanese but jut LOVING to view the usual suspect; the Visual Fashion Delightssss...
.
~Here you are Darlings...enjoy some of them:
:
click...click...click...
(shhh...spy -camera!)

Wow, saw some familiar faces...
Hmmm...her style is Big in Japan too!
"you go girl!!!"
.
What fascinated LENORENEVERMORE the most was
the section on 'Kimono'
...have always adored this beautiful traditional costume!
.
...LoveliNESS!!!
Love how the traditional Kimono has evolved throughout history,
The ladies now can pair them with some European Designers!
How fab is that?!
.
...there are many creative ways to
tie an OBI
.
...oooh I can do this one!
I guess hair-style is easier than the Obi...
.
I'm so glad to have found this magazine...
and my attempt to be a 'spy-agent'!
If I were one, I would want my spy-trench-coat to be made
from this beautiful Kimono textile!!!
.
~Well-well-well...look who else
made it BIG* in Japan.....
Miss FanPLASTIC!
.
~XOXO* & Blessings
as always Darlingsss...

One more thing to tell you.
Are you taking a Bullet Train again for Tokyo? If so, I'll stand on the platform at Nagoya Station with a big banner "We Love Lenorenevermore!"

Sal said...

All lovely, but those woven handbags? Amaaazing!

Sher said...

You don't need to read Japanese. Fashion and style has a visual language all it's own ;)

Simply Mel said...

Those bullet trains sound fun! Aren't they just floating on magnets, or something? Anyway, be careful in all of your espionage... and remember, don't trust ANYONE! Even 'Kimono Barbie' might be an enemy spy!

I love the kimono's...but I agree the hairstyle looks a lot easier than tying an obi:)
The bullet train ride must have been pretty damn cool, enjoy your trip and have a fab weekend:)
