Is this crazy

there are times when i find myself extremely inspired by the way some items on my auction watchlist have happened to come together...
i found these two listed next to eachother and i thought it would make an interesting and strangely cohesive outfit:

yohji yamamoto noir basket weave hat, acne jeans liberty print tunic






i think its the contrast that i love: european style vs traditional japanese style, sweet and spring-y vs slightly edgy. i reckon a pair of margiela tabi pumps (or even some japanese getas) would totally complete this look.
& im not sure how practical it would be but i think i am going to buy the hat. can you tell the brim is asymettrical--one side is wider that the other...irresistable:



P>S remember kokopuff who i wrote about last year like a crazy fangirl? she has a blog now and she still dresses impeccably!

I can totally see those together and looking amazing, especially with the tabi boots. Fabulous > practical ;-)

Wow, I can see how it gets together and I cannot think of anything else but that itd look incredibly good. Each item for itself, too, though.

I still remember Kokopuff from MyStyleDiary. Shes always been dashing.

Oh, and Ive sent you an email, I hope you dont mind.

wow. what a great hat!

I live in the land of acne and I have never seen the dress or tunic worn with a hat like that, it would be fantastic!
