Happy Halloween readers!! I’m going out tonight, but still unsure if I’m dressing up. Saturday is the big party night, but I had a wedding to go to. Instead I did what all sane animal owners do and dress up their dogs!

BEHOLD the mythical PEGACORN!

What’s a Pegacorn you ask? It’s a Pegasus Unicorn. A combo so rare it’s too beautiful to see. It’s so hipster you haven’t heard of it yet.

He always kept his horn tilted, I’m saying it’s his style choice instead of him perpetually trying to shake it off for the 10 minutes he wore it. :catno:

I glittered his wings and made his horn and “mane”.

It was for charity (entry fee went to benefit a children’s hospital) and Franklin won 3rd place and a giant bin of toys


 

A casual and an adult look from Glad News and Spiral Girl shop staff. Rock relaxed and classic mode style contrast girls. Both are stylish girls that make me miss Japan and the question my lack of bangs. (lol)

Glad News – Shinjuku Lumine EST

This shop staff was simply so nice. I must say beyond that I had just gotten off the plane (with layover a 16hr flight) and I was making the horrible great choice of staying out that night so I could see DJ Ace. But of course I had nothing to wear (winkwink). So my bestie Alice helped me carry my luggage up the escalator to Glad News floor outside of Shinjuku station in Shinjuku Lumine EST where we were greeted by this lovely shop staff.

Who was shocked I was such a shopping whore that I couldn’t even touch my luggage down to shop.

She was very lovely and looking back with non jetlag drugging I love how casual yet rock her look is. If you can see her arm she has a tattoo of her starsign Virgo on her lower arm.


Spiral Girl – Shinjuku Alta

She is probably younger than me but she looks like the cool adult I want to be when I grow up. I just haven’t decided when that is. #fail

Her outfit is classic monotone styling and her hair is very timeless as well. But deride her as looking basic or simple and you’d be mistaken. It’s that wonderful shocking orange lipstick that really takes this to another level.

Orange make-up really busted out when Candy Doll did an orange blush (always at the forefront Bloomzy blogged about it in 2010), but while it’s not as overly popular it still is a common choice in make-up.

Murua producer Momoko Ogihara and style trendsetter said she’s doing orange for Spring 2013 ( pictures on her blog )

Spiral Girl is a giant gal brand. Godzilla sized Spiral Girl outpaces popular Lip Service and Gilfy in terms of stores, maybe even combined! When they release their look for the season, it’s bound to be everywhere. In combination with fashionwalker they released a small catalog of looks for Spring 2012 and it’s a playful, colorful playground of traditional styling mixed with denim and retro prints.

More of my last days in Tokyo back in Spring. I realized my suitcases were much less light and realized I actually hadn’t shopped that much. My budget has been tight and I’ve had to balance it between nails and other things so shopping money has not been easy to come by. I had some money in the end so I did a quick day of wonderful shopping with great shop staff.

 

TutuHA – Shinjuku ALTA

It’s SaraMari’s favorite old Morimayu! She’s working at the Shinjuku place to get it rolling. This was before she left to work are Fernopaa which Woxje made an excellent post about that store here and fabulous lady Fashionate Traveller took excellent in store photos here

As always she represents her brand so well. Love her new trend of feathers at her shoes.

Spiral Girl is one of my favorite brands and they’ve carried over their pop gal concept into this season mixing military. Spiral Girl doesn’t take itself too seriously and that translates well into their bold catalog.
