Fur Fur‘s Spring 2011 Collection was a plethora of BOWS!!!! You may already know that the world and time stops infinitely for me when I see a Bow on a head or dress because I just love them so! It’s like when Mr. Marmar hears the shake of the snackums bag. He freezes and then pitter patters towards the snack like he’s denying he’s been OWNED by a lousy snack bag. Then he gobbles everything up in 10 seconds.Cat snacks aside, Fur Fur has introduced an adorable collection of Snoopy (or Snooby!), BOWS and that hairdo from the 1960s that you can recreate on Yearbook Yourself. I love love love this collection! Check out Japan Streets for cool photos from the Japanese streets and local fashion shows.

Alexis Mabille is a relative newcomer in the Haute Couture world and has proven himself (it’s a dude) to be in it for the long haul. That icy blue color is reminiscent of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ , which is one of my favorite books! I can’t wait for the Tim Burton film to come out by the way!  These flirty and feminine designs are like a grown up Sweet Lolita from Japan. Speaking of, I have one of my friend’s has several of the sweet lolita dresses from Japan and was wondering if it’s odd for a thirty something to wear it ? I ‘m just asking to see if I look foolish my friend would look silly. Please tell me if it looks ridiculous on me on her. Click here for photos of my doppelganger wearing a Sweet Lolita dress.

Those Japanese don’t fupe around when it comes to their nails! These are some pretty elaborate designs for such a miniscule area of space. Kawaii Nails offers a wide range of cute pre-made designs that would make Lee Press-Ons cry. Ranging from fruit, sushi, bows, bears, hello kitty, desserts, the toilet bowl, a steak dinner… no, only cute things and it should be pink (which I have qualms about!) When I was a younger and a more punky Roxy, I too, wore nails that discouraged me from biting my nails and made wiping my ass a daunting task. Here’s proof. Anyway, you can get the kits here. Remember, keep it pink and cute as possible to keep yourself looking like a Long Island house wife

Betsey Johnson’s  Spring 2009 show was exactly what I think of when I think of Betsey Johnson- youthful, feminine, and whimsical. I really liked the use of ruffles and cage dresses. It was a cross between Victorian chic and pirate wear. With lots of innocent white, lace, bows and ruffles, Betsey Johnson strived for a pure look. Maybe, the Harajuku style is what most influenced her this season.  I’m not sure if they are wearable in some parts, but I would them- but then again, I would  wear anything that is a little out of the ordinary. Final Grade: A-

Marc Jacob’s mouse flats celebrate a decade of decadence by collaboration with the artist , Kaws. These lmited edition (only 200 pairs in the world) can be found at Marc Jacobs boutiques, Colette in Paris and OriginalFake in Tokyo. I like them but I prefer the sketched Marc Jacobs mouse flats.  I got them in white. I had to get them because my nickname is  Moosh and  of course, Moosh  means ‘mouse’ or ‘cute’ in Farsi. So it was a purchase of necessity- yeah, that’s it…..

Check out Tomoko Sawada’s exhibition at Colette in Paris November 3-29, 2008. Photos of the artist in the Harajuku style are on display. When I went to Japan for my honeymoon 5 years ago, I knew this look would take a while to catch on in the US. But , I guess it’s starting to trickle over here, finally. I have a few pieces by Shirley Temple Cute and Milk that I have been wearing here in the States and I feel like people don’t understand this look. I guess because it looks childish. But you know what , Fupe them! I love it! By the way, if you like Japanese style and  you’re in Culver City, CA- Check out a cafè called Royal-T.
