Next time you visit NYC, you should give me a ring! I'm a short train ride away from the city. :)

Great find! I love how you wore it with a skirt. Have to visit that place too. Phantom of the Opera must have been amazing as well.

Fab jacket! And bizarrely "Chotto takai desu ne" is one of the very few Japanese phrases I actually know!
