On my last full day in Kyoto, I moved out of my apartment and then had about 6 hours to kill until meeting the girls for dinner and then getting on the night bus to Chiba.  I am quite proud of myself for not buying everything in sight out of boredom.  This passport case by bombay duck was in a pop-up in the Kyoto Isetan.  This was totally an impulse buy, as I already have a passport case (boring and black, but it did the job).  There were a few varieties, but I liked the first class one the best.

I will be so sad when I go back to America because Shu Uemura’s US operations are online only now and there won’t be any counters to peruse.  So for now, I’ll buy as much as I can while I still have the ability to go and check it out.  Stupidly forgot my brown eyeliner in the hostel in Fukuoka, so picked up this new one.  Pretty standard; I’ll def. be buying lashes before I leave, the problem is….which ones?!

Shu Uemura, cosmetics section of the JR Kyoto Isetan.  Isetan is on the JR side of Kyoto station.  Cosmetics: 1F.

Cat’s Tsumori Chisato is having a pop-up shop in the JR Kyoto Isetan.  Of course I had to go.  I wanted to go on a spree because this stuff is so cute, but limited myself to a shirt.  I also got a free gift of cute star clips in a cat’s tsumori chisato case.

Cat’s Tsumori Chisato, limited time pop-up shop. 4/20-5/8 JR Kyoto Isetan.  Isetan is on the JR side of Kyoto station, take the main elevators up to 5F.  You’ll see the pop-up shop on your left.  The normal Tsumori Chisato boutique is also on this floor.

It was getting time for a new wallet, so after awhile searching, I finally settled on this Anna Sui one.  My complaint with the last wallet (a tri-fold) was that it was cumbersome to get bills and change out.  This has become a bigger concern recently since Japan is largely cash-based, whereas when I was living in nyc, I paid for everything via card.

Anyway, it’s a black leather envelope style with red accents and a cute floral pattern on the inside.  It’s got a lot of card space and it’s much easier to access stuff inside this wallet than the last one.

Tsumori Chisato cat scarf from JR Kyoto Isetan.  Also came in pink, but I already own a pink trench coat; it would have been too much.  Plus the blue looked better.  Love how one half of the cat is on one side and one half is on the other.


Grew up in philly, used to live in nyc, spent a year in japan. I like shopping. Gotta figure out what to do with this blog now...
