all the pics should be back to normal by the 12th, so no new posts till then i guess : )

Urban Research, Women’s Spring 2011
Vogue Girl, shot by Gia Coppola
Ships, Women’s Spring 2011
Journal Standard, Spring 2011
oh yeah, i noticed 80% of japanese dudes dress like Tintin, who i really enjoyed catching up with on tv over there.
Randa, Spring 2011
i think this has to be the most beautiful editorial i’ve seen in a long time:
sigh. more Brutus:
i bought this brown kewpie for Y65 and i thought it would be appropriate to stick him next to this blackface editorial:
kurt hummel vibes from the model, no?
walking around japan i noticed a few tote bags being worn over and over again by girls in quick circulation; the most popular of which seemed to be a very particular anna sui.
the culprit behind this phenomenon turned out to be ‘e-mooks’, a magazine-catalog hybrid that is issued by brands and come with a free gift (most ostensibly, of course, a cute, cheaply made tote)… the entire thing hinges on the idea that you get to keep a little something from your favorite brand for a fraction of what it would normally cost.
this bag came with the Figue e-mook for Y750:
i remember seeing a particularly stylish girl on the train carrying a tote with a braided hair pattern on it and thinking it was oddly adorable… i was so happy to find that it was actually an e-mook by muchacha-ahcahcum
the rest of the pics on the blog should be back up by the 12th so till then, i’m sorry for the eyesore!
