Around Kobe 2010 #1

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. Same ole’ school, friends, exhaustion cycle :sage: Here’s pictures around Kobe from last month. Next up: a few trend updates :stepup:

I was really cold so we headed to Kobe OPA which is connected to the train station. OPA contains the majority of brand gal fashion in Kobe. The adorable signature cat in Christmas wear.

Not all gal, there's a mix of a lot of styles in OPA. Mote-kei, casual, etc...

I had never heard of Brush, maybe a Kobe only store, but I loved their monotone looks.

As a note I didn’t watermark these for your enjoyment, but if you do reblog or post somewhere else please do the original photographer of crediting her (aka me). : :cheery:

    The “Oh! Christmas” signs made me laugh too much! :mrgreen:

    The Cecil mannequin looks so warm to say its a shorts outfit, not that Im even confident to wear them in Summer :worry:

    Love the Cecil McBee red shortpants!!!
    I’d really like to Kansai one day as well but
    traveling inside Japan is so expensive…

    Mitsu bb you are misseddd :cry: Hope everything is going well besides the usual!
    Thank you for sharing these photos as always though~ I may be just a BIT biased, but shop layouts & storefronts in Japan always look so much more put-together than the ones here in the US :worry:

    I love Kansai gal brand stores! I found a mall full of them when I stayed in Shinsaibashi a few years ago and was amazed how cheap they were~

      Awwwh thank you so much for saying so! It feel so guilty when I don’t update so it really spurs me on to do more!

      I agree, although my fun was out with friends. So hard to say no sometimes to good times with good people in Tokyo ^_^

    Saw a girl on the train with a ‘brush’ shop bag the other day and wondered where it was. Maybe she’d been to Kobe, or there is a store in Tokyo?! :!:

    Hope you’re doing ok. I totally understand the whole, uni – friends – sleep thing right now :cry:

      wow I guess she wanted to be original, or maybe it was a fukubukuro bag?

      I was so tired, being a student is so meh isn’t it >_<
