Japanese Girl’s Katakana-print Dress & Rocking Horse Shoes in Harajuku

This is 19-year-old Rika, a Japanese student that we ran into in Harajuku.

Rika’s outfit is based around a dress that she told us was handmade. The dress features an all-over pattern of katakana (one of the Japanese alphabets) made out of animals, insects, and fruits. She’s wearing her handmade dress with bow-print anklet socks, rocking horse shoes that she bought at an unnamed store on Takeshita Dori (perhaps Body Line?), a necklace, a vintage-looking gold ring, and a large vintage Jordache purse that she got resale.

    Ugly bag. Cute dress. And as always I’m a sucker for rocking horse shoes.
