Ok, admittedly this post didn’t quite go according to plan. I had envisioned this outfit post being similar to my Harajuku outfit post…with a funky background, maybe some bright signs or graffiti…you know, something to blend in with my Star Wars outfit, haha. I was in Akihabara for these photos, on my way to a Maid Cafe (more on that in a second)…and this is an area known for its electronics stores and cosplay, so I didn’t think my vision was too far off.

However, the areas that had the bright lights and signs I was thinking of were quite crowded…and the side streets were very peculiar. They were either filled with absolutely adorable restaurants…or strip clubs, with their corresponding advertisements. So, my Star Wars outfit is set against a cute, little Italian restaurant..because the strip clubs on the street over just weren’t blog-appropriate. Haha. Not that I need a particular setting to wear a Star Wars outfit, though! I’ll wear Star Wars shirts, dresses and accessories on any given day. (It’s just nice to photograph them with certain backgrounds!)

But anywho! My Star Wars shirt is actually a gift from my mother-in-law and brother-in-law (Ryan)! My family knows me quite well, haha. (Thank you, guys!) I love wearing cotton t-shirts, there is just nothing comfier…and throw that in with a light skirt on a hot summer day! It’s wonderful! It also gave me a good excuse to break out my new BB-8 jewelry from FemmeDeBloom. She has the cutest, handmade accessories! I think I’m going to need one of her lightsaber necklaces to complete this look. πŸ˜‰ (Also, if you’re new to my blog…yes, this purse is real! Haha.)
Cure Maid Cafe

Cure Maid Cafe

And I was in Akihabara to visit “Cure Maid Cafe.” It is said to apparently be the original “Maid Cafe” in Tokyo. I had only recently heard of such a thing…I had heard of cat cafes and actually visited an owl cafe, but the maid thing sounded a bit creepy. However, I’ve been getting told repeatedly to visit one…so, I went! It really wasn’t at as creepy (or sexual) as it sounds. It’s basically a bunch of waitresses dressed in cute maid outfits (not sleazy, by any means), who are super cute and polite and we had to do all kinds of funny little cheers before we ate our very cute food.

It was an interesting experience to see the least. However, I don’t know if I would say this is a must-do while in Tokyo. It’s kind of one of those things that I can now say “Hey, I did that!” But it doesn’t even scratch the top of my memorable moments list in Tokyo. So, moral of the story…if you find yourself in Tokyo on a limited amount of time, skip the maid cafe. It was also quite expensive! It was just over $80 for my husband I to eat a burger, omelette and ice cream here! (We were a bit shocked.) But this also included a souvenir (my cat ears and my husband got a key chain) plus, the two photos of us with our waitresses. Quite expensive, though, in my opinion! (However, the Akihabara area is definitely worth a visit! I’ll talk more about in a post later this week!)

    Definitely a great t shirt! And so cute with the skirt! I love the pix of you two with the “maid”, it makes me laugh trying to picture my hubby doing that! πŸ™‚

    I loved your outfit, the Star Wars T-shirt is lovely! I think that the Italian restaurant was better than the clubs you mentioned, as background! The Maid Cafe and the dishes, soooo sweet! I think it is quote expensive, but well, it’s not an everyday thing, so it is worth a visit, to have this experience. And you got some souvenirs and the memories – then this is priceless! Hope you have a nice week!

      Thank you so much, Denise! Haha..I agree! The Italian restaurant was a much better choice. πŸ˜‰ I’m glad we experienced it…I would just say it’s not a “must-see” if you’re on a limited amount of time in Tokyo. πŸ™‚

    You both make such an adorable couple.
    One of my colleague friends is a huge Star Wars fan. She will be delighted to wear those earrings and I to have that handbag. Cannot find it on the site anymore.
    $80 does sound expensive, but looks like you had a good time still!

      Aw, thank you, Richa! The earrings are so cute…and her prices are wonderful as well! Unfortunately, I think the handbag is only available in certain countries now… I can still see it when I’m on the Japan website, but you’re right, when I switch to US, it’s no longer there. I’m so sorry! πŸ™ $80 was a bit on the pricey side, in my opinion…but it was still an experience to be had! πŸ™‚
