DROPSNAP.JP//so obsessed

I know I'm not alone when I say that one of the first things I do in the morning is check my favorite streetstyle blogs. Garance Dore, The Sartorialist, Jak & Jil, AltamiraNYC, etc...I live for their updates!

But lately a new style blog I've discovered via Luluandyourmom has become my #1 destination for style inspiration. It's the only site where I can find girls using teddy bears as outfit acessories, boys wearing orange fur trimmed jeans, and the only streetstyle site where the word 'chic' is rarely appicable (and that is a good thing!!)

I imagine this guy's vintage Levi's overalls did not come cheap-authentic vintage Levi's fetch extremely high prices in Japan-great color scheme here and those overalls are amazing. The girl works for a magazine-check out her itty bitty tuxedo blazer, sequin bowtie, pointy patent boots, suspenders, and pigtails. Lesson learned, it's all in the details.

Lucky girl!! She has a tutu from Comme des Garcons Fall 2007 and the spiked Junya Watanabe boots from Fall 2006...!



^HILARIOUS, this chick on the right must be so down..this could just be a passing fad but this girl has inspired me and I am desperately seeking a 'cleavage shirt' for myself. Here is a dream outfit I have in my mind right now: Leather Martin Margiela blazer, an awesome cleavage shirt similar to this girl's, skinny black denim, basket weave Givenchy wedges.

Look at all these kids-they're constructing their own personal universes out of clothing!

you must read fruits and street if you like street fashion ;)

OMG I am in love the orange-tutu-wearing girl's gray top with the lovely draping! Absolutely beautiful. :)

this is one of my favorite blogs. everything is more than fashion, it's art and craziness. it's not about what maybe looks flattering, these people are so wildly creative and everything about them is so inspiring.

Photo of Meg

Yes! Leave it to the Japanese. I'm totally inspired by all of these photos; reminds me that I don't have to be "chic" to look awesome.

The guy from the last photo, the one holdin' uu the peace sign is sooo cool... I wonder if he's single? Haha! Japan had always been the trendiest fashion spot in Asia. It's the ground-zero of fashion on that side of the planet. Very cool people and very artistic too... I love Japan. Wanna go back there someday.

They all look so great! Thanks so much for the link. This made me happy. The orange tutu is amazing. Wouldn't be to hard to make something similar.

Thanks for sharing, it's really inspiring.

I love that Mexican blanket looking jacket in the first pic!

Photo of Joie

Ooh, nice site! Thanks for linking it. :) Another Japanese site that I usually go to is Style Arena JP (http://www.style-arena.jp/). It's a bit like FRUiTS when it comes to how they photograph people and they organize the photos depending on the location (Harajuku, Shibuya, Daikanyama, Ginza, Omotesando).

i could definitely see you a lot of these outfits. what i really like about these picks is that even though there is a lot going on, it still maintains its cohesiveness.

the girl on the red staircase is at 'laFabrique club d if Im right its at a night called 'vanity' which is really good for some good fashion/style. You can check their page at www.vanity.to theres some phtos there so maybe you can find something else you may like...

Omg! I love this stuff so hard!

I don't mean to be a hater, but I definitely know what you mean about "the only streetstyle site where the word 'chic' is rarely appicable (and that is a good thing!!)" Sometimes I think I'm the only one who doesn't really care about the Sartorialist AT ALL. One time in twenty he'll have something I'm interested in, but mostly everybody there is too plain/clean for me.

I can't say how big of an inspiration you are to me... thanks so much for sharing with us!

ha! I used to have one of those 90s (at least that's when I remember seeing them a lot) beach "cover ups" that had the drawing of a lady on it in a swimsuit. not quite the cleavage shirt, but it does trick the eye.

I'm addicted to Dropsnap as well. Japanese kids are just too cool for school...

Photo of Rianna Bethany

right i totally think tutu's are an upcoming trend, but not the hideous ones that people wear to 'electro' nights out in clubs in the u.k. but instead really big ones with loads of volume! I've just posted my favourite finds on etsy and one is an adult size tutu! I love em!

JANE,

not sure if anyone has commented on where you can buy the boob t-shirt she's wearing. But if i'm not mistaken it's a Vivenne Westwood t-shirt and can be bought here: www.hervia.com


bisous xx

ah yes, i discovered dropsnap a few months ago and it is FANTASTIC! the originality and imagination of the people featured on that blog is astounding. i've always admired the way the japanese wear what they want to, not just what flatters them.

Hey Jane,
Have you seen this one?

And I strongly recommend that you search eBay for vintage belt buckle designers such as Christopher Ross and MIMI!

My love to you and your great blog!

I saw this on a local vintage shop website and thought of you [from your recent posts of band jackets]!
It's a pretty cool "cadet jacket"...

Good luck!
