I grew up on a US Navy base in Japan, so I had access to all sorts of crazy delicious food there, and one thing I miss, is that you could find nearly anything in MELON FLAVOR. It's harder to find anything over here, but thank the universe for Asian grocery stores. We kinda live out in the country, so we have to travel an hour to Seattle to acquire all of our tasty Japanese snacks, but it's better than nothing, I guess! Did you know that they have all sorts of different flavored Kit-Kat in Japan? Melon, matcha, blueberry cheesecake, creme brulee, strawberry, pineapple, even wasabi!! Like, why not here in the states? haha. Why?! They're still super hard to find, even if you make the trek to a Japanese grocery store. Sometimes I'm tempted to buy a small box of them on amazon, haha, but they're like 25 bucks, and I can't really justify that.
Do you guys have a crazy sweet-tooth like me, or food that you just can't live without? I kind of wish I never made that little collage of sweets up above, because now I'm super hungry for Japanese junk food, haha. sigh.
My melon-inspired outfit:
striped sweater: vintage
dress underneath: handmade (reconstructed from a top, my deerhoof shirt, and a slip!)
knee highs: I wish I could remember.
brooch: handmade (lefty high five brooch)
