In Japanese fashion world, they look set to become a trend this spring.
Expect to see lots of fanciful design caps like metallic, bold prints, studs, leathers or even simple ones like denims occupying boutique shelves.

ViVi’s cute model Arisa Yagi shows you how to dress up to look fabulous for the cold early spring with some of her fashion items from winter.
Are any of these sweet lovely styles to your liking?

Japanese fashion styles / sweet coordinates for spring

1. Vertical stripes shirt layered with purple mesh knit and short for the casual and cute look. Arisa added elegance to the outfit with a fluffy fur coat for cold spring days when you can’t leave home without a coat.

2. Stadium jumper too casual or rugged for your liking? How about giving a challenge to something like this?
Arisa picked a feminine lace blouse teamed with flare mini skirt in smoky blue, a color perfect for spring. Knee high socks with pumps completed the outfit.
See,,, stadium jumper layering can look this sweet and girly too (^-^)v

3. Arisa turned to cute, simple style with monotone next. She paired a white top tucked into a black short having quite a bit of volume, decorated with a sweet big bow at front.
Houndstooth checked boots is a good choice!
They looked perfect and gorgeous for simple styles like this.

Special Edition Sweets For Valentine’s Day

It is “love in first sight” with these limited edition Japanese sweets (wagashi).
Could you tell that they were sea breams (Tai) ?

I thought that they look ugly. But again that was precisely what caught my heart!
And looking so real and big are those eyes that were not missed. Contrary to the eyes, there was a tinge of melancholy & loneliness, on the way that the mouth was created. Simply love the delicate scales and fins details that were crafted all over their round body.
How? Aren’t you in love with these Japanese Tai sweets?

Two varieties, chocolat and sakura are available (from OCS store)

Valentine days limited edition / Japanese fresh chocolates

It couldn’t be wrong to opt for Hello Kitty cheesecake if you wanted something that is “straightforwardly” cute.
Cheesecake is a “NO” because you are on diet?
No problem! Hey, Kitty cheesecake is about the size of the palm only.

Ermm…The size is not going to be enough for me though …(*^-`)v

Wonder festival event in Tokyo

Wonder festival event guide book cum admission ticket, requested by a customer sometime ago. Cool! We didn’t even know such event existed. Call us a frog in a well or whatever (._.)

Its not unusual that we got inquires from customers about some Japanese products or sites that we have no idea at all. Many time its like “Wow! How on earth did customers know such sites??”

About Wonder festival, according to source, it is a big bi-annual event in Tokyo, where garage kits in molded objects like anime, game characters, creature, mecha, etc will be displayed. The highlight is that you can purchase rare interesting masterpieces created by amateurs or professionals.
And… And… And… not to forget the one very big attraction for some people.
Lots of females sculptures in exposing and erotic positions for you to take a pick!
Chance to pack your fantasy back home (^_-)

Its so amazing that Japanese cultures and high quality products aren’t posing any language barrier for foreigners, like Japanese language do.

Japanese sweets, crackers for gifts

Oops…before I even knew it, I have been absent from blog for quite a while m(_ _)m

Today’s theme… Buttons, roses and leafs that won’t cause any heath problem when eaten! Sounds too good to be true that Japanese technology had came this far (*o*)!!

Caught you right there, didn’t I ?
The truth is … These are chocolates! (^-^)v
How!? How!? How!?
Doesn’t it amaze you that chocolates can look so real,,, so exquisite?

Given a chance, I would love to have a bite on cat’s paw sweets (pic on right bottom) which according to Ray is squishy and soft in texture.
There is still the choice of crispy, Japanese rice cakes (Senbei), if you happened to be one of those that doesn’t get turned on by the word “chocolates”.

Do these give you some ideas on what to get for gifts on your next visit to Japan or maybe the upcoming Valentine’s Day?
