Every time I visit one of my favourite fashion websites, JapaneseStreets, I am inspired.
JapaneseStreets is an online magazine focussed on Japanese street fashion, runway fashion and street culture, started by photo-journalist Kjeld Duits.
Everything that is popular on the streets of Tokyo and beyond, you will find at JapaneseStreets. With more than 20,000 photos archived in traditional, modern (Cosplay, Lolita, Kogal, Ganguro), and international influenced oufits, you will be sure to find some real fashion treats.
"Japanese Streets - Japanese Street Fashion, street culture & catwalk fashion. Real people. Real Clothes. Real Cool!"
A photograph posted on 9th June, Ririka at Shinsaibashi, Osaka that I just love:
There is nothing extraordinary about Ririka's outfit, skull print T shirts have been around for well over a year, but for me, there is something about it that works, and her studded shoes are just fabulous!
So, what did I do today? I went for a shop at Savers to prove that if you see a fashion outfit you like, you can replicate it by buying second hand. I didn't find a pair of similar studded shoes so used a pair of boots I bought from eBay instead (it is Melbourne winter afterall) Here goes:
Skull print T Shirt: $3 Savers
Mini skirt: $6 Savers
Leggings: Target bought 3 years ago
Hat: $4 Salvos
Boots: $30 eBay bought last year
I may not be able to carry it off like Ririka does, but I gave it a go...
