Big in Japan: Tattoo Tights

Tattoo U — Tattoo tights are worn by a wide range of women in Tokyo, from schoolgirls to high fashion. I spotted her in front of Shel’tter, which had to be one of my favorite stores in the area, except for Pass the Baton, for upcycled pieces that rocked my orbit.

If you’re into the tights, here are some cute options on etsy. Perhaps you desire pop art knees or damn, these are super sultry for leggings and tattoo tights rolled into one. Done.

Big in Japan: Schoolgirl Street Fashion

by Jerri Howell on Friday, October 26, 2012

in StreetStyle,Tokyo

Uniform Behavior – I was mesmerized by the variety of schoolgirl uniforms wandering the Harajuku district, an area that’s popular for class trips, I’m told. It’s cute to see how the girls would set themselves apart within their groups, style wise, usually with ornate backpacks (I spotted a lot of Jansport patterns) and stuffed animals. If I had to be stuck with a uniform, I’d hope for the blue one above. You can see some of my shopping faves listed below…

Travel Tips for Harajuku: Take the Yamanote train to Harajuku station and the main exit leads you to Takeshita Dori. It’s a fun alley for sightseeing, a fun dollar store and stores with kitschy things. If you cross the main street behind them to the next alley, look for G2 Vintage and the B-side sticker store (thanks, Ben). If higher end is your gig, at the end of that 2nd alley, turn right and find stores like Marc by Marc Jacobs, which has the most incredible canvas totes right now. I’ll take the lipstick red version, please.

Big in Japan: Schoolboy Style

by Jerri Howell on Thursday, October 25, 2012

in Slideshow,StreetStyle,Tokyo

Slideshow: A Boy and a Ball – I’ve been in Tokyo on a shoot and have a few treats I hope you like.  I spotted this schoolboy in Tokyo’s Shibuya district and just freaked over his style. That satchel alone just melts me. How cute is he, stopping to pick up the ball he dropped? Life should be so simple. Right after this, he stood in front of a convenience store, dancing wildly to their piped in music that was spilling out of the building. His mother was nice enough to ask him to pose for me, but when he broke character to focus on his ball, I was charmed. So many cute kids in uniforms and I spotted a few really young ones navigating the city on their own, which you’d never see here. I’ll show you an example when I post the range of schoolgirl uniforms.

My Tokyo excursion might explain the slow updates, but I’ll be back in full swing after a catch up weekend. I just loved it there and spotted a few fun trends to share, so stay tuned and I still have a lot more fashion week videos and images I promised you, too.

The Bag Brigade

Bag Brigade – Ack, this is just too much for a girl with a bag fetish. From left to right, it’s Phillip Lam’s Pashli Satchel, like Jennifer’s that I just featured here, plus Alexander Wang’s Prisma Tote (love this croc version) and Emile bag. { Click the pic to Supersize }

Anna Dello Russo, Mad Hatter

by Jerri Howell on Tuesday, October 9, 2012

in New York,NYFW,StreetStyle

Last time I spotted Anna Dello Russo, she was running late (literally). This Fashion Week, it looks like she made it into Derek Lam’s show just in time. When I think of editors going over the top outside fashion shows, she’s the first one who comes to mind — and in no danger of under-delivering anytime soon.

Phillip Lim’s Pashli Satchel

by Jerri Howell on Saturday, October 6, 2012

in Bag Fetish,New York,StreetStyle

Disheveled Chic – Her tousled look was adorable what with the unevenness (is that even a word?) of the rolled hem, and when she turned… thud! I was bulldozed by my new favorite bag, up close and personal.  It’s 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Pashli Satchel in textured leather, which debuted about a year ago, and you can shop some personal faves below.

#Want – Jennifer’s carrying the gold metallic and I’m especially loving this in jade – and the Pashli mini is just too cute.

What’s up with pushing one cuff up, anyway? Do you think she’s in a gang?

Round Frames + Feminine Edges

by Jerri Howell on Thursday, October 4, 2012

in New York,NYFW,StreetStyle,Trending

All About the Edges – I spotted Violaine Bernard and Indigo Clarke going into Milk Studios during Fashion Week and wanted to show you the round lens sunglasses that are trending here, plus the soft, feminine edges still infiltrating the city. More than that, you’ve got to love how Violaine aced this look by pairing her sweatshirt with frilly shorts. #clever

I found a few cute sweatshirt vibes to juxtapose with flair wear:
