Fashion victim gets her comeuppance...

It had to happen sooner or later. There's only so many times you can wear horrendously jarring combinations of clothing and shoes before you have an accident or an embarrassing mishap. The latter happened this morning at Yanagawa Train Station. A 20 something girl, resplendent in bobble hat, too-small-jacket, micro mini skirt and a-size-too-big black high heels with those awful doily socklet things, was clickclacking her way up the stairs amidst a throng of commuters when she screamed and the whole movement of people ground to a stop. She had lost her shoe, and she was stuck. Despite cries of "kutsu! (shoe!)", it took her a few minutes to jostle past the uncooperative, put-out salarymen to receive the scuffed shoe. Did she apologise for the incident? No. She just giggled to her friend and carried on as if nothing had happened... still, she did have a very red face and was clearly embarrassed. Perhaps this will act as a deterrant to others, but personally I have sore misgivings...
