Fave Finds: Siri’s Cute Cat Blouse!

Who are you? Siri of Ringo, Have A Banana!

What did you find? “A vintage cotton blouse with all-over cartoon cat print and tiny gold buttons. I call it my “Maneki Neko,” or “Lucky Cat,” shirt.”

Where did you get it? A vintage shop in Harajuku, Tokyo.

How much did it cost? ¥700, or around $7 at the time.

When do you use it? “Whenever I want a chuckle. Half the time I don’t even need to wear it — just peeking at it in my closet makes me smile and reminds me of how much fun I had in Japan. I should just hang it on my wall!”

Any vintage shopping tips? “I tend to shop with a two-pronged attack in mind. On the one hand, it pays to keep a list of a few things you’re on the hunt for at the moment — be it a pair of loafers, a tan sweater, or wool trousers. It can help to narrow your focus if you’re feeling overwhelmed, especially in an unfamiliar shop or market. On the other hand, I firmly believe in always staying open to spur of the moment scores. I’ve passed up way too many things I thought were frivolous at the time, only to quickly regret not snatching them!”
