MARUI ONE SHINJUKU SUMMER SALE: HELLO KITTY QUOLOMO T-SHIRTS, HEART HEEL SHOES IN SHIBUYA 109, JAPANESE VAMPIRE DRAMA TV SHOW.
Marui Young Shinjuku had a “sparkling summer sale,” which is where I got my Marble short jacket with dangling vampire sleeves. Despite the stifling heat, many girls dressed in full Lolita for the event. And despite the sales racks, most of the clothes were still pricey!
Quolomo’s designer T-shirts filled the window. I like the Piet Mondrian x Hello Kitty design. Do you recognize the other anime characters? (For more Marui photos, check out the links in my Lolita Shopping Guide.)
Across the road is an Algonquins boutique. Marui also sells the brand, but I suppose one can never have enough Goth/Lolita/Punk.
For the summer sale, the busy Shinjuku street was blocked off. An old man brought his little dog in a leather carrying case and took its photo in the middle of the road!
In Shibuya 109 (the teen gal shopping complex), I spotted the cutest sparkle sandals with heart heels (for under $40). Too bad they look like they would destroy my feet.
Also spotted in Shibuya: Michael Jackson drawings made by a cobbler, and a subway poster for a vampire TV drama. Yes, there is a Japanese Twilight. Check out the Photoshopped fangs on the pretty-boy.
What would you buy at the Marui sparkle sale? Any tips for finding comfortable yet stylish shoes?
