This girl is MINORI a Japanese shironuri artist, her clothes are all handmade/ remake items featuring vintage and antique pieces.
She invents an ultra modern style using an innovative signature makeup and mixing Japanese Lolita and historical accessories.
I try to inspires me a lot to this style, but living in a small town and not in Tokyo, it's not always so easy to find the right dresses to put together such impressive outfits.
Here you are other examples from Tokyofashion.com of this new incredibly fashion movement:
(70's Gunne Sax dress and antique white fox "poor thing" stole)
Gunne Sax dress, antique Japanese Himo (rope belt) and an amazing crocodile bag
Boys wearing antique traditional clothes (left) and vintage (right)
His beautiful antique hat.
There are also a lot of Western artists that reinvented the use of vintage clothes, probabily Alice Glass's style is more similar to mine
"When life gives you lemons, make lemonade"...this is my motto and this exactly what I thought when I found this original 1970's coat with the tag still dangling on it
I hate beige, but we have only a charity shop (thrift shop) here and I can't resist to anything that isn't contemporary, this remember me of my blogger friend Curtise from The Secondhand Years who usually finds a lot of stunning coats and in one of her last post challenge herself to wear beige that is her own kryptonite.
This exactly what I tried to do, how to turn a dull colour ,that I usually don't wear, into something more personal and appropriate?
Well, I'm not very satisfied with the result, but this is the best I can do and I usually hate all my photos and my outfits
Some badges here and there, an antique belt and an antique rosary necklace (antique market) a JOY DIVISION mini dress (etsy)
handmade beanie hat (my lovely creative mom)
Dancing like Ian Curtis...
My bleached tights are vintage
The badge on my hat is a Clare's from Miss Simmonds says present
She sent me this great card and compilation too:
from Joan Baez to No bra ("brilliant " is not enough, especially if there is also a Jhon Water's casting and Brunetta's Baluba Shake in Italian in it)
I find also this beautiful music box during my trip to Florence
And this second hand Anatomy pop-up book
I love it!
