I emailed Debora some pictures of 1930s and 40s Drindl's I found online
and asked her to make something similar, but with a hooded capelet, lately I've been really into hoods (see my amazing 1930s hooded robe). The result is wonderful, very 1930s or 40s Disney Princess, or Hobbit!, in the best way possible.
The artisan-ship on the Drindl is amazing. The hooded capelet is hooded brow velveteen. The sleeves are trimmed in the same velveteen as the cape and have zip closures. The apron ties on and the white section is faux blouse trimmed with brown ribbon. The entire dress zips up the back.
I wore my Drindl to the Mitsuwa market place which is seriously one of my favorite places in the world. Not only do they have the most delicious ramen:
But all of the Japanese supermarket items are incredibly cute:
And there is an amazing bookstore with tons of adorable animal books
and toys like this Ponyo puzzle.
I got a pug key cover that was sold out the last time I was here
and some super cute dog and cat buttons.
Here they are on my Freddie's of Pinewood jeans jacket.
Perhaps I should have left the pug life button though because it may be a bad influence on Fry and Weasley as they could be embracing their inner thug. On Wednesday there was a drive by shooting less then a block from our home and I was in the back yard with all of the dogs. Tuvok was terrified and ran toward me, but Fry and Weasley ran towards the gate and the sound of the shooting. It was very scary but we got inside safely and no one was hurt. (The bullets missed whoever the intended target was.) There are definitely downsides to living in the city, but Mitsuwa Market is an upside.
