I loved the stole of knitting. The look is so feminine but the stole is amazing and can be put in any diferent looks for a special detail. Brings on the attention to the face.

@Leila: I like your observations. I hadn’t noticed for example that Haruka’s stole brought more attention to her face.

Great contrast between the darkness of her hair and the paleness of her skin. Then, the sharp cut of her fringe vs the softness of her flowing dress.
It’s lovely!

Wow, very cute.
I like her pose in the first picture, it looks kind of innocent and fits perfectly to the way she’s dressed.
At least I think so :)

like a princess! with a lovely bag

Very bright. I can’t believe her bag was only 2000 yen! =O Second-hand maybe? I really love it. <3 Her sandals are too big. I noticed this on many girls in Japan (especially in Tokyo). I wonder why they do that… Maybe because some shops only sell S, M and L size shoes, so it’s hard to find one which fits. =/ I had some troubles with that too.

@gionbaby: Good observation on the large sized footwear in Japan. I have been curious about this myself. Could also be partly cultural. Japanese always take off their shoes and wear slippers at home. These only come in a few sizes as well, so most women wear ones that are too big. Perhaps that becomes a habit? I can imagine that it feels comfortable when you’re used to it.

Unfortunately, I always have the opposite problems with Japanese slippers for inside. They are always too small! It is like wearing massage footwear…

I love the Cult Party store influence! Although I heard this store no longer existed..Is that true? I think Ari-san (the owner) might have a new store called “The Virgin Mary.” Is that right? Great shots by the way, this style is great.

CULT PARTY indeed now exists as the Virgin mary. Ari-san calls it CULT PARTY 第2章 (CULT PARTY, second chapter) and it was opened on March 29th this year. the Virgin mary is on Twitter and mixi (membership required). Here is a Google map with the location of the Virgin mary store.

@Leila Silva: I never realize her stole of knitting brings on the attention to the face! Thanks for the comment!

@Yah Rah:I know! I like how she uses bright color and black!
