Sustainable Puff Sleeves Knitwear At Ikea In Tokyo

Hi everyone! Thank you for your lovely comments on the previous post!! I will post the information about next book fair on Twitter and Instagram. Anyway, today's post is about Ikea in Tokyo. I have gone to Ikea stores except for Tokyo because I didn't know Tokyo store. It is the nearest store from my home! When I went to other store, my stomach hurt because of the store was very far...

みなさま、こんにちは!前回は、たくさんお祝いコメントをありがとうございました♡また、他の書店さんでブックフェアがあるそうですので、最新情報はTwitterとInstagramのストーリーで発信していきますね。さて、本日のお話は 久しぶりのIKEAです。立川店は初めてだったのですが、思っていたよりも私の家の下北沢から近くてびっくり。以前、港北のIKEAに行ったとき、あまりの遠距離でお腹が痛くなりました。

The purpose of this shopping was getting flames for my paintings and bathmats. I always use the bathmat from Ikea because it is so soft and comfortable! Ikea is very huge, so I can't arrived at the goal instantly and I often feel like might passing out. However stuffed animals place always helps me! I hug them, and I can get myself back. Anyway, I chose this black knit wear with puff sleeves. You might remembered that I posted about it. This time, I customized it again because I wanted to make a more beautiful form of right sleeve. In addition, I made balloon sleeves with rubber strings. Unfortunately, my balloons were not blown up, so I will try to put something in next time. This bag is from kate spade, which is a gift from Kate Spade when I was an official blogger of Kate Spade Japan. The bag looks like Bottega Veneta The Pouch with wooden parts. I think that this old Kate Spade bag really suits Ikea's atmosphere, right? Ikea new store in Harajuku will open on April, so I will be able to go there for about 30 minutes! If you like Ikea, please tell me your favorite stuff!

今回の買い物の目的は、絵のフレームとバスマット。IKEAのバスマットはふかふかで速乾性があって大好きです。IKEAは、なかなかゴールにたどりつけないくらい広くて、途中で意識を失いそうになりますが、ちょうどそ頃に癒しのぬいぐるみコーナーが!目があったぬいぐるみたちをハグしてエネルギーを充電すると元気になれます。さて、この日はIKEAのDIY気分に合わせて、以前、カスタマイズしたニット(こちら!)をアップデートさせました。右のパフスリーブ のふくらみが足りなかったので、右袖だけ取り外して直しました。さらに肘上部分にゴムを入れてバルーンに。本当はもっと、ぽってりとしてほしかったので次回は何かつめてみるかも。サステナビリティの意識が高まると、アイデアに磨きがかかります。本日のバッグはケイト・スペードブロガーだった時のギフト。ボッテガのザ・ポーチにウッドのパーツがついたみたいなデザインもIKEA気分にぴったりです。みなさまもIKEAはお好きですか?お気に入りのアイテムがあったら教えてくださいね。4月の原宿店のオープンも楽しみです。

  8. What a brilliant makeover, Akiko, the sleeves really do make the outfit (and the salmon colored trousers are gorgeous as well). You can even make Ikea look chic.

  9. I love that Kate Spade. I think I prefer this to the pouch! Hehehe. I love the statement sleeve of your top, so pretty. I also love ikea, but it can be tough going through the store. It is quite the journey. Their frames are my favourite too
