Japanese style pants coordination

With the right coordination, pants can look equally sweet and girly, which we have no doubt skirts or dresses do.

Gingham check & floral skinny pants are two of Japan’s major trend of printed pants now. Everyone’s in them here. And these are some ways of sweet, casual styles coordination by Ray magazine.

Keeping the tops simple is the Key.
It doesn’t do you justice to don on tops having bold prints when blending with printed pants, which can make you look like a clown. Plain tops are best matches. Ray picked blouses with ruffles, frills, peplums or knits to go with the pants, to add a touch of sweetness.

No way we are going to leave accessories out!
Bow headbands or clips, hats do great jobs in enhancing the “kawaii” look.

For more details about these coordinates, please inquire through the blue button at the bottom.

Sakura motif umbrella

Rainy days is going to be something to look forward to (*^-`)v
No kidding,,, I am serious!

Without a single clue on what I am talking about?? (・_・*)(*・_・)

The BIG hint: Umbrella

When the umbrella gets wet, Sakura patterns appear! Isn’t it amazing?
Apparently the Japanese who came up with this idea, thinks that an umbrella should not STAY as a useful tool only. A few interesting yet playful touches is needed for an umbrella, hence the “Sakura Mechanism” was born.

We have to agreed that this creative umbrella is going to brighten even what seems to be the most gloomiest day. Before you know, you will be yearning for more wet days… my guess (o^-^o)

Other than Sakuras, cute prints like Disney characters, animals are showing up.

Thumbs Up for whoever who designed this d(*v*)b
Bet rainy seasons is going to be twice the fun with it!

Japanese new character (Sushi & Neko)

Japanese has a newfound sushi.
The new ingredient sitting on top of the vinegar rice are CatS!! o(*’o'*)o
Of course, these sushi are… INEDIBLE (*^^*)

The newly created product by Japan is known as “Nekozushi” simply, means “Cat sushi”. Keep a look out as “Nekozushi” sets to become the next rising star.

In reality, we are not going to see “kawaii” cats sitting so still and comfortably on a vinegar rice (shari). The idea is hilarious.
And I am sure Sushi & Cat lovers are not going to get enough of this “delicacy”.

“Nekozushi” has become popular free iphone/Android download applications.
Another reason why you should own a iphone or Android phone, if you haven’t got one?

This is not the end you are seeing “Nekozushi”.
We are sure more goods are coming up.

Do remember the name “Nekozushi” (*^-^)

Japanese style sweet bikinis

Seems that we are waiting forever for summer to come again, when we could head down to the beach to get some beautiful tans (o~_~o)

Got your bikinis ready? If not, these 2 pieces sweet bikinis from Ray magazine are going to raise some excitement for the upcoming summer (*^V^*)

Bikinis decorated with bows has become a standard design for “kawaii” Japanese bikinis.

If bows aren’t your ideas on how an ideal cute bikinis should be, try those with frills No.3 or laces No.9 add-ons. The cuteness doubles!

A little reserve about exposing too much thighs?
Look to bikinis which comes with skirts or shorts (No.1, No.2, No.5, No.7)! All thanks to the skirts, you don’t have to worry about bikinis that are cut a way too high, because wobbly bits are hidden. What’s more the sweet prints and design adds a touch of stylishness & cuteness.

Prefer simple, classic style bikinis?
Crochet bikinis, No.6 & No.8 offers a simple, soft exotic style without straying much from classic. No.4′s retro gingham white and blue check, embellished with flower laces looks too fabulous to be neglected.

Aim to be a cute bikini babe this summer!
