There’s no non-braggy way to say this but… I’ve just come back from Japan! *_* And although I was only armed with an iPhone and decidedly below average photography skills, I did my best to scout out some cute fashion examples! I was on the look out for stylish ladies throughout my trip but the stereotype is definitely true: All of these were from Tokyo!
[Also: Our blog formatting has cut off the side of the pictures a bit, but if you click them you can see them in full. I just thought it would be better to make them 500px wide in case you want to steal them for your tumblr!]
I was lucky enough to bump into these gorgeous rose-themed Classical Lolitas after accidentally stumbling into a rose festival happening in beautiful English-themed garden, Kyu-Fukugawa-Teien. They look very serene here but they were lovely and very giggly — not to mention whipping up a photography storm with all the eager festival goers loving their outfits! I wish I had known it was on!
I also Instagrammed them (above) and you can enlarge them by clicking. (And if you’d like to see some more non-fashion related Japan goodness, please feel free to follow me on instagram @imogendall or online here!)
Saw these cute ‘n smiley girls at Shinjuku station! Not sure what they’re style is, but I love their headphones! I also especially love the girl on the left’s frilly socks paired with pink rocking-horse shoes. Socks and heels were such a trend!
This girl was a total doll! *_* I love her Hello Kitty hair ties and My Melody bag!
I bumped into this sweetheart while shopping at Marui! She had on a totally perfect pastel fairy-kei outfit, but unfortunately the lighting in there sorta killed all the colours. Also she wanted to take her photo with me afterwards so I’ve awkwardly ’shopped it in there… haha! <3
It’s unusual to find Gals in Harajuku, but I found this cutie! Check out this close-up of her amazing nails and hair below…!
OMGGGGG one of my FAVES!!! I think this girl was the most adorable thing I saw in Harajuku. She’s totally perfected the Magical Girl look that the whole EA crew is going crazy over right now! So much love!!! *_*
I really liked these simple, comfortable “natural kei” co-ordinates. This style isn’t something we cover much here at Electric Alice, but to be honest with you, it’s something I tend to wear more than I realise! It’s nice to wear florals and earthy tones to come down from the sugar-coated high of lolita pink or fairy-kei lavender!!
But mainly…. THOSE SHOES WITH THOSE SOCKS! <3 <3 <3
Socks with heels seem to work for any style!
Shiro-Loli (or ‘White Lolita’) is somewhat of an old-fashioned trend so it was cute to bump into these two fans. (This was like 9am in the morning too — what keen beans!!!) <3
It wouldn’t be a Harajuku fashion post without a token sweet lolita! She looked so cute with her matching phone and bag of sweets.
This is a flawless co-ordinate really. She just looks so chic and beautiful! Plus she’s totally on trend with her lace socks with heels, which tones in nicely with her lace skirt.
THAT HAIR!!! *_*
And finally, I bumped into two Cult Party style girls! They both had matching Muchaha-Ahcahcum cat face bags <3 and I loved their great accessories. Especially that rabbit face necklace!
Anyway, that’s it from me! Sorry for destroying your bandwidth! ^ ^;;
And as always, please feel free to send in your own snaps (of yourself or anyone who consents to you sending their fashion snap!)
Stay cute, EA girlies!
