::Midsummer Meaw::

日本語ver. → こちら

Mid-summer in Tokyo is super humid and it is taking our energy away!
To get motivated to go out and do fun things, I choose to wear something fun :)



Rainforest Yukata + "I Love Cat" Obi.

with a little blue butterfly on my waist.

So where did I go in this look??

I went to Kimono Hazuki, an antique kimono shop in Daitabashi, for the first time.
I'd always wanted to go there but I kept missing a chance for it. 

I love this retro atmosphere :D

I got something beautiful there. hehe

Before meeting up with my friends that night, I had a lunch at an American diner.


Two other looks with the same summer kimono↓

Mirror Mirror... Our table was surrounded by walls of mirrors.

Their bathroom was sooo colorful with this candy wall. 

Aren't these bathroom doors so cute???

::Punk Twist::

日本語ver. → こちら

Another side swept hairdo for lob to long hair♡
I've been growing my bangs to frame my face line, but it hasn't been that long yet. Side swept look at least hides one side of my face so I feel more photography-safe. :D

Details of my previous "Circus" look are HERE

Simply twisted and pinned.  It's easy to recreate this look.

Start with curled hair.
Separate hair on one side into 5-6 sections, twist them upward tightly and pin each section with 2 crossed pins. 
I made hair on the very top into a pompadour. 

Pins don't fall out when they are crossed with each other. I was out for about 10 hours with this hairstyle but never had to fix it.

If you want it more voluminous on the other side, back combing the root of hair might help and it would make the look more stable.

Give it a try!

Here are other 2 looks with my lob hair↓

::Tokyo Circus::

My Outfit of the Day for outing with my friend in Harajuku.

My friend and I had a fun date at Laforet Harajuku to take a peek at Yukata POP UP shop. The details of the weekend is on my previous post HERE.

I got a new yukata from Rumi Rock this year and finally got to wear it :)
It has rabbits, deers, fishes, and more animals printed with zebra and leopard patterns. 

I put everything together in purplish color with an accent of vivid yellow around my chest. 

Lace, Zebra, Leopard, Animals, Stripes.....
Everything is mishmashed but it is the kimono magic that everything melts into one. I'm aware it is still really flashy tho. 

Items used around my waist. Love these vivid colors♡

I tied the 4 meter long obi into a big double ribbon. 
This is one of the most basic tie for yukata looks but the obi is unusually longer than normal ones so it turns out to be voluminous like this.

And I added one more new thing as a statement for this look.

Fender pick earring made by CHOKO.
It also has a feather attached, so I named this look "Tokyo Circus"♡

Shoes also in deep purple with galaxy thongs. 

I'm so in love with my new yukata♡

The rainy season is almost over and real summer is going to start soon!
Let's make it great with lots of fun things :)
