Shop Staff 31 – Shibuya 109 Glad News & Ikebukuro Parco Candy Stripper

Three awesome shop staff from Glad News in Shibuya 109 and Candy Stripper in Ikebukuro Parco have great original style below.

 Glad News – Shibuya 109 

Oh hi my name is Miki, I’m in the green hair on the left and I’m fucking awesome.

It’s Miki!! Total style icon for me. I love seeing her pop-up on the 109 Glad News style blog. She hasn’t met a hair color she doesn’t like or doesn’t look amazing on her.

When I visited the store she came up to help me out and I was in a bit of a lazy outfit (leopard shawl cardi from wc, boy london shirt, unif hellraiser shoes), but she knew UNIF and Boy London and lusted over them and gave me a bunch of compliments and I got up the nerve to tell her I knew her from reading the 109 blog, and I promise it came out like as much of a creeper as it sounds reading it. But I don’t care. She said I was stylish and asked if I was a designer. Really, Miki? You know sometimes people tell you compliments and they grow in your heart like vines and never let go? That was one of them.

The shop manager is on the right. She remembered me from last year. Although I don’t know how many derpy white girls come in and chat  :regret:

Miki’s side shave in green? Pulling it off like a rockstar.

Candy Stripper – Ikebukuro Parco

OMG not a gyaru store?! How can this blog go on?? Actually Candy Stripper is insanely cute and has a big fan in style queen Kyary Pyamu Pyamu. I love having her picture on here so you can see the lack of gyaru make-up she has and her styling is not gyaru. We had the same two-tone dip hair however.

Candy Stripper makes the best cat prints, I wish she was wearing one so I can make a point. I do love her shoes as the color she chose. I always forget to do color accents as shoes.

    Oh I actually like candy Stripper ♥ and Glad News is one of the few Gyaru brands I like! (So I really appreciate this post haha)
    Miki looks amazing…! Do you know the store Galaxxxy? Their staff girls are really nice and talkative too…
    Also about the thing about sounding like a creeper because of reading the blog and knowing the staff etc…I am already afraid of visiting the monomania store. I’m following their blog for years. I know the names of their staff people…and I do prefer some..and they inspire me…I’ll feel like a complete stalker after setting my first step into that store. I’ll be like ‘Oh fuck there’s Raira…! I can’t go in! And omg can you see Ramu? She looks so cute!!” haha~

    a;lskdfj I love Miki, she’s amazing~! Not only does she have the same name as one of my best friends, but she’s the most welcoming staff like EVER. Actually Glad News shop in 109 has the most welcoming staff like EVER. I love it there, whenever I use to go they were always super kind and they always tried to remember me. Though I have always loved Miki the most because whatever she helps pick out for me, I’m always in super love with. Not to mention her style is off the wall! She’s really humble and chill about it, when I commented about how much I love her green hair and blue eyes (that day they were a brilliant blue~!) she was like “It’s cause I’m a zombie *wink*” and I swear she had my heart there <3

    I really wish I could have gone to Candy Stripper, I absolutely love Kyary Pyamu Pyamu <3

    Miki’s way awesome! I would never dare to go for a hairstyle that funky cool, but I appreciate them on stylish women! I’m seriously loving this oversized black tee + demin shorts trend. Oh so comfy and oh so stylish!!

    Mitsu, thanks for the post. I follow every brand you post on FB. You should be getting paid for this.

    Wow Miki definitely rocks the look, it suits her :-D !

    I love Miki too…even before she had the green hair & blue eyes (hey I have blue hair with shaved side and green eyes!) Actually, I just recognised the face from when I’ve been there; I didn’t know her name. Where can I get that FAB spider earring? WANT!

    As you know, i LOVE Glad News!! Still wear my skull studded long tee ALL the time. Oh, I can’t WAIT to get back!!

    and…hehe…I have those spike shoes on the right but in black, and love them too :)

    Wow I’m really in love with the skirt the candy stripper employee is wearing. :oops:

    I went today & Miki came up to me saying she liked my style (we both have shaved sides and spider earrings) She’s got mauvey purple hair now! We got pics together, but of course I looked crap ;/

    Oh no, I think it was Kaneko! *Confused* She had the same spider earring and other piercings, shaved sides…but I think the blog called her Kaneko.

    For the first time Iwas brought to Japan, for the first time I entered Shibya 109 and saw Miki at the store! We had the same hair style! I was orange though, and she was blond!
    She’s just awsome, she picked the best clothes for me! Thank you so much)
    PS – can I take a picture next time?))
