☆ Rainbowholic Goes To 80’s Pop & Fairy-Kei Brand “SPANK!” at Koenji + Short & Sweet Sunday in Harajuku + Mini Kawaii Haul ☆

I was supposed to go out with a friend yesterday but had to cancel it a few days ago because of the sudden rush of work during weekend. Good thing I finished the first pile of work before I went crazy at home…! Imagine, I started the photoshop work at 9AM and finished it at 3PM?? That was one photoshop work experience @___@

In case I haven’t revealed this fact about myself, I’m quite the type of person who needs to be alone & outside (emphasis on this, haha) from time to time. I’ve sorely missed this refreshing feeling of going somewhere unplanned that’s why I knew I just had to be out there to spend some “me” time. After all, this is my kind of perfect Sunday here in Japan. Even though I cannot attend mass even if I wanted to, I make my Sunday (usually) a day where I can reflect and ponder about life… haha, I guess that’s a deep Kaila for you guys. 😀

   

Because I felt free from work (lol), I wore my 2 pairs of wings. Haha!  :happy:

DIY Kokeshi Doll print shirt & DIY Winged sneaker platforms by yours truly.. from Kawaii D.I.Y.  :heart:

:happy:

Koenji and Thrift Stores

My heart dragged me to Koenji. Oddly enough, it was my first time to go there! It’s like a thrift store paradise to Japanese people. I guess you could say this is where Japanese hipsters come to hang out together? That’s just my observation. Haha!

Felt like I was in Shimokita & Nakano at the same time!

From Shinjuku (JR), you can go here using the CHUO Line (way to Mitaka).

Artsy Fartsy

What I went for: SPANK! スパンク!

 

SPANK! is a popular 80’s pop disco / fairy kei brand by Tavuchi-san. There’s also a SPANK ME! shop but in Shibuya.

Supeeeeeer cute! Pastel lovers would go crazy over this store!

YAY~!

Too many unicorns in one place.

I was lucky to meet and chat with the super cute & nice Eric/ERI-chan! The store manager of SPANK! <3

She’s sooo nice and she said she loved my look especially my winged sneaks! OMG :(((

She even took a photo of me and posted it on her SPANK! blog!!! UWAAAAA~
