CUTE 1980S HARAJUKU GIRLS FASHION. FAIRY KEI RAINBOW TUTUS IN MANIA Q, PASTEL CAT T-SHIRTS, BANANA FISH SHOP TOKYO.
Back to the cuteness! In June, I posted photos of Mania Q, an adorable little fairy kei hub on Takeshita Doori (Harajuku). This month, I awwed at the 1980s retro cat tees and pink skirts on display.
Gosh, I love fairy kei. The next time you’re having a dreary day, why not put on a Care Bears or kitty t-shirt, pastel foofy tutu and giant pearl necklace? Instant sunshine!
The faded rainbow tutus were my favorite. You could probably make one yourself or even try dying a petticoat in soft colors. (Remember the skirt in this post?)
What also caught my eye in Harajuku? This “stairway to nothing” (the brand names on the steps are promising, but lead to nowhere. I believe the shop closed down a while ago). And Banana Fish consistently scores in the cute fashion arena. I saw new versions of my ridiculous ghost dress and kitty scarf.
Have you climbed up on the Fairy Kei rainbow-brite rocket yet?
Off to WASHINGTON DC! I hope to see you at my Cute Yummy Time book signing; info below. There will be free cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcake!
