I live in Japan half of each year and there is a store near me that gets the most wonderful odd European designer items after the season ends. Since a Prada size 50 is fairly large by Japanese standards (most all of my Japanese friends are size 46 or smaller), generally there isn't a lot of competition shopping in that size. So, I've been lucky to find some really interesting items (a few from Prada, but most from Costume National, Lang, and Jil Sander). I bought this one a few years back because of the fabric and the color... but aside from wearing it once or twice it has just been hanging in my closet. I'm heading back over to Japan later in the Spring and need to clear some things out.
