like her skirt

@Annabelle: That skirt was bought at SPANK!, a used clothing store that often remakes its clothes and has given birth to its very own fashion genre, imaginatively called SPANK!

Yes! Spank is very decora meets late 80’s early 90’s American fashion. I met some of the shop staff and they told me that “Full House” was actually part of the concept! (The old TV show).
I LOVE that she’s wearing the buttons. Would LOVE for Harajuku street style kids to wear my buttons someday..Ah, that would be a dream come true. haha. Maybe someday, ne?

@Lactose Intoler-Art: Maybe lots of them will have your work on their walls, notebooks, pencil cases, and so on as well!

love those ciggarette shaped earings

@Emi Kusano: the purple’s great. I have a skirt the exact same colour but it doesn’t the pleats. I’m kinda in love with pleats right now. :)

@Kjeld Duits: I’d love to have a look in Spank but I’m al the way in London.

What a pretty girl!
Wears her outift very self-confident, that increases her charisma even more. :3

I’m in love with this site XD

May 2, 2010 (5051 days ago)

she reminds me of the actress chiaki kuriyama….
i like her hair and also her phone chain /is it what im thinking it is? haha/, she seems very interesting!

May 2, 2010 (5051 days ago)

@ojisanbaka: She does look like Chiaki Kuriyama a bit, doesn’t she! Yes, the phone strap is what you think it is. For emergencies, I assume?

@Berry: Thanks for the kudos! Appreciate it.

@Annabelle: Time to start saving… You will love visiting Tokyo.

@Kjeld Duits: Ooh, I already am. I’m even learning Japanese. I’m gonna be teaching English because I don’t really have any other skills _

she is cute
and she has beautifull hair

May 3, 2010 (5050 days ago)

@ Annabelle: Wonderful to hear that; go for it! The English teaching business has collapsed though during the past few years (only a third of the lessons taught compared with just 2 years ago), so see if you can learn another marketable skill to heighten your chances for getting a good job.

@Annabelle: After I placed the above comment, I happened to find this article on the site of the Japan Times: Eikaiwa on the ropes after fall of Geos.

I’m not so sure about her make-up, especially how she designed that awkward spider-web bottom lashes. It looks…strange…up close. She might want to add bolder colors to her drained pallet on her face against her outfit. Or maybe add softer natural tones of pink for her cheeks and lips, while using a light metallic silver as eyeshadow. She could probably volumize her upper eyelashes somewhat?

It is NOT decora meets the 80s/90s..the concept is just 80s and 90s little girls clothing like what stephanie tanner and D.J. Tanner would wear, riot grrl concept as well. Not decora, although fairy kei has decora elements.

Haha.. didn’t know condoms can be used as phone straps.. Is it being sold anywhere on the web?

May 24, 2010 (5029 days ago)

@Daphne You can buy it at the shop called Condomania that’s where she got, i am not sure if they still have them or be on the web?

@Daphne: This is the straight link to the Condomania site. They have a huge selection in their online store (links to categories are on the top right), but I couldn’t find the cases with condoms that Yui wears. If you don’t read Japanese yet, I recommend using Rikaichan.
