my mid-year exams are over! apologies for missing out on kera and zipper’s june scans, but i have to say, the JULY kera issue is much nicer: a gazillion cute shirts, new wigs and INTERIOR SNAP!! so i will post this selection of awesome coordinates first and eventually work backwards ;]
bitter vs sweet looks. the title reminds me of the scene in honey and clover where they get ice cream instead of rice with their spicy tofu and toma ikuta’s character eats them alternating, “amai, karai, amai, karai!” hahahaha
predictably, i chose more “bitter” looks as they lean more to the rock style… i thought the top middle was really cool since i don’t see a lot of those types of material featured in KERA – reminds me of the monoxious blog and their love for complex geometries. and then we have the “sweet” fairy kei looks i adore, especially since i have those same baby pink doc martens boots. the bottom right half of this image are my favorites from the many spiffy t-shirts in the issue 🙂
is my re:no and kyary pamyu pamyu bias showing? > < their styles were the best in this spread though! i like the leopard-print rolling stones tee (with the clip-on cat ears) and union jack top with a studded&chained belt best!
streetsnap was the REASON i started buying/taking interest in japanese magazines! (minus the 2 rightmost images, they aren’t streetsnap but the ruffed collar was something new, as well as what i like to call the “punk minnie mouse” look with the spotted skirt and VK top. love the top center girl’s hair; but my favorite coords are the two leftmost photos.
