I work for Limited Brand Stores, the skirt on the last image is from Fall/Winter 2010 Collection. Funny!


Blogger Petey said ... (11:24 AM) : 

Clearly here is a woman who loves life! Such happy photos. Add my voice to the chorus that appreciates a flat shoe instead of a heel for daytime. She's a gem.


Anonymous Mmm said ... (11:31 AM) : 

she's using the Panasonic GF1
not sure what lens but probably the 20mm

Japanese girls have the cutest, most elaborate sense of style. And the golden flats the 1st girl is wearing are so unusual! I wonder if they're comfortable?

I'm amazed at the lack of recognition of one of the giants of the fashion world. Cute? Adorable? Edgy and exciting I think.

When I first saw these photos the word "adorable" came to mind. Then I read the posts and saw that adjective repeated over and over again. Guess it's apt (though not original!).


Blogger LuxeCouture said ... (6:29 PM) : 

Aw she's adorable! Love these pics!


Blogger melissa f. said ... (6:38 PM) : 

oh isn't she just as cute as a button! It's fun to see how height can affect one's style, and what trends she/he chooses to follow.


Blogger Davidikus said ... (7:20 PM) : 

The lady certainly has presence, style & charm - is she posting her pictures anywhere?

She's so cute!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:55 AM) : 

she can smile and look happy because her feet are not being tortured in high heels. She has great style and demonstrates that high heels are not necessary for being stylish.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 AM) : 

A friend of mine who is not Japanese but tiny can't wear heels because her feet are too small. Shoes for women usually begin at size 5 and she is a 4. This condemns her to shop for shoes in the girls department. These golden flats are such an inspiration. thanks.

Blogger MayKay said ... (6:10 AM) : 

Many elements in these pictures make them exceptionally likeable: her smile, her style, she's wearing shoes she can actually walk in, she's over 30, she's of normal height. More of such personalities, please!
