Declared so tacky they never existed, these flattering faux see-thru skirts were rumored to have recently hit the streets of Tokyo and across Japan in waves of seemingly thousands of transparent-skirted women everywhere.
Last week, hearing whispers of this latest and greatest trend invading Japan, I had to check it out. Now, as most of you know or will soon discover through this blog, I am absolutely drawn to the cool, quirky and bizarre, especially if it comes from the Land of the Rising Sun. So, as soon as I heard of these skirts I had to go in search of them. "Who makes them?", "How much are they?" and "Where can I get one?" were just a few things I needed to know. Alas, they could be found nowhere and upon further inspection I became suspicious. And as I delved deeper I came upon the confirmation that the faux see-thru skirts were nothing more than a photoshopped hoax.It had been to good to be true. And to all you fan boys out there, wipe the blood from your noses. There will be another place, another time.
