Kinji Shop Girl in Pink & Purple in Harajuku
This cute 18-year-old Japanese girl is a student and also works at the Kinji resale clothing store in Harajuku. She’s wearing a mostly pink and purple color palette that includes a Mickey & Minnie Mouse t-shirt bought resale at Kinji, a ManiaQ skirt, polkadot stockings, mint leg warmers, and pink Converse sneakers. She said that her pink watch is from Thank You Mart (another Tokyo resale store).
Her overall look definitely has aspects of the Japanese fairy kei style (and ManiaQ is popular in that scene), but she doesn’t have the extreme accessorizing that we often see with fairy kei girls. She told us that her favorite brand/shop is Kinji, and that her favorite band is the Japanese pop-punk/ska band Shaka Labbits.

Note: This update is from a series of street snaps that were taken in the summer for a print magazine. The magazine didn’t need all of the photos, so we are running the remaining snaps here on Tokyo Fashion. Some of the styles may be more Summer than Fall, but they have never been seen before and we didn’t want them to go unpublished.
