I love the pattern and the colour palette of the whole look. A great find! She’s a gem. I’d like to point out that curtain ornament again! Is this becoming a trend in Japan? It’s brilliantly mad. Her hair is a great nod to earthy tones with those three colours. Also, she looks quite tall. Can you confirm this? Beautiful girl. :)

I like how she looks very traditional (haori and her high belt feels so japanese) and modern at the same time.)
Nice smile!)

She has a loonie necklace, too! :D

(A loonie is a $1 Canadian coin)

I really like that hst. && her phone background is Shinobu-chan from bakemonogatari! cute!

Very unique! I like the whole outfit!

Very pretty! She looks like a quintessential “Flower Child” from the sixties.

She is AMAZING! I LOVE the color palette, and how the mint green streaks in her hair seem to coordinate with what she is wearing. Its great how her cell phone character also somewhat resembles her.
And yea, I noticed a lot of people, at least in the “street fashion” type of scene (or antique style, or older vintage) kids are wearing the curtain things…But its usually more unique kids and not so mainstream! I saw some at Haight Ashbury and I wish I would have bought them now…Maybe I can find some in the states and just make my own. haha

Thanks for your comments, and sorry for my late replies. I had been almost away from the internet for a while:(

@Mel and Lactose Intoler-Art: Interesting comments. I was not too sure about the curtain ornament (tassel) until you guys mentioned about it. In Japan, it’s actually called 房飾り (boukazari) and it’s traditionally worn by people especially with kimono as a fixation string and an accessory. There are a variety of the Japanese tassels but I guess it’s not very different from regular curtain ornaments. Do you think it’s strange we wear it? By the way, a far as I remember, Supi was not very tall but was around 160cm. One thing that makes her slim body, I guess!

@Tonya Vinny: Exactly. I love how she makes Supi’s modern Japanese style very special by the kimono and the tassel!

@AshleyLeighann: Supi’s phone wall picture really matches her. Thumbs up!

@katharess: Thanks for your comment. Supi will be very happy to read it!

@2046: I love your expression of Flower Child so much. I actually didn’t know what it was but I googled some images and just became a big fan of it!

I love her cozy look! That hat looks like one she has knitted herself (I know she hasn’t but still it’s kind of DIY-fashion-like)
I can’t help thinking how most people woulnd’t be able to rock a hat like this, the way she can. Everything just strengthen each other and I think that it’s a really nice and different look mixing a lot of different styles – isn’t her “jacket” an open yukata? (or is it the “haori” in the list above? never heard of a haori before)

The way she has mixed deep blue with bright pink and earthly brown colors is kind of fresh, I think. I find that often bright colors and earthly colors are rarely mixed – but why can’t they?

Great shots Marie-san and nice “catch” on the street ;)

@Keekii: Really loved reading your comment. Very well-observed and expressed. Her jacket is indeed a haori.

Haori jackets are usually hip or thigh length. Haori for men are shorter than those for women. They are usually worn over a kimono. Until the Meiji Period (1868-1912), haori were only worn by men. Women’s fashion changed a lot during the Meiji Period, and adopting haori was just one of many changes that occurred.

Excellent selection, Marie!

She looks so cute! Her bohemian style is relaxing and nice♥

I love it! Tres Chic! I noticed the kimono boukazari (had to copy-paste that one!) too, on a few different girls and thought it looked bizzare yet totally complimented their outfits. I find it very cool, and I’m looking for my own, actually. I love her haori, especially with the brown skirt. And she has such an open, likeable face, I’ll bet she’s funny and easy to talk to once you get to know her! Love the hair streaks, too!

I love her style! Love the kimono-like jacket, her hat, don´t get me started:))
