City woman explores
zero-waste lifestyle

I'm not real big on shopping, hate malls and window displays rarely impress me... Brent was shocked... here's his response to my attitude on shopping:

Dearest Darling Alison! You must be confused! How can one NOT like shopping?! Are you ILL??!!! I spent the afternoon wandering around Shinjuku buying all sorts of things. The stores are a lot darker, because all necessary lights, escalators, billboards, signs etc. have been turned off to conserve power for the quake-tsunami stricken north of Japan, but the throngs of shoppers are just as thick as ever!

Many westerners seem to have the idea that the Japanese are a short race of people, but this isn't true, especially with the younger generations. Granted, they're not as tall as the Scandinavians and the Dutch (you should know, my dear cousin!!!), but neither are they hobbits! When one is MY size, however, it's often difficult to find clothes that fit. (Thank GOD for Yohji Yamamoto!!!) When I arrived 24 years ago, it was pretty much IMPOSSIBLE, and shoe shopping, my absolute favourite, was a nightmare! The shoe designers figured that anything over a men's size nine was something only Frankenstein's monster would wear, so the designs were something that, well, Frankenstein's monster would have worn!!! HIIIIIIIIIDEOUS!!!

Sooooo.... what a lot of my friends do are clothes-swap parties. Get a bunch of people together, (hopefully all around the same size), bring some booze and a couple of your fab outfits that you no longer wear, throw everything into a pile, start drinking, take off your clothes and dive into the pile! Loads of fun for all, and you'll come home with new clothes and a nice buzz! VOILA!
