What she's wearing:

Dirndl: Vintage

Blouse: Thrifted (and reconstructed by Keiko)

Belt: Thrifted

Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

Why it's her perfect first date outfit:

"Myideal first date involves a hanging out in a park, complete with swing sets and possibly even a kite. The gingham in the dress makes me think of a classic picnic blanket, and the overall look is typical of my everyday outfits. I'd like the guy to get to know the real me, not an idealized version of myself. If I'm comfortable in what I'm wearing (and my surrounding environment), I'm more relaxed, and less prone to awkward small talk."
