Utility Fashion Anonymous 1030[Reply]

Is anyone else interested in this style? It obviously looks good on models, but does it work for the average woman, or does it just look too dumpy? 1/2

it looks way better on anyone with hourglass figure than models actually.

Good resource if you're looking to test/brushup your jfash knowledge, even if it's missing some of the newer subcultures.

There are quite a few Japanese and Korean exchange student in the street I live. I have no hope to compete, they are so beautiful. Want to make some friends with them and then go have a makeover, but I'm scared.

Be brave and try it. What could you lose? Maybe you make good friends.


Thrift shopping Anonymous 1052[Reply]

Are you on a tight budget? Do you like antique stuff? Do you want to help the environment? Try thrift shopping!
Contrary to popular belief, thrift stores are not dirty and for poor people only. You can find some cool items for cheap, and you help the environment in doing so by cutting down the costs for manufacturing another item. And it's fun!
Post items you found while buying second-hand or stories you want to share here.

Anonymous 1053

I would post some things I found right away, but they are being washed. In my city there's a second-hand store selling used clothing from all over Europe, and at the end of the week they have amazing discounts where they set the price for each item as less than a dollar!
I like thrift shopping because I don't have much money and I don't feel right spending so much on just a piece of clothing. Also it inspires me: since the clothes are so cheap I don't mind remodeling them so when I look at the clothing I don't only look at what it is right now but also what it could become. Wow that sounded real philosophical.

Anonymous 1055


Second-hand is the best! The only things I buy new are undies and very basic stuff such as tshirts and tank tops, everything else comes from second-hand shops.

I find old clothes more colourfull, more joyfull, and the quality is often much better since they're not made in Asia. The only disadvantage is that synthetic materials were more commonly used before the 90's, so you can feel like wearing a tin can suit.

The women in my familly know about my tastes and give me all the things they want to get rid of. Most of the dresses I own belonged to my grandmother.

Anonymous 1056


Wow, seeing all those colors and patterns is so awesome!I like the red thingy with the flowers. I also get most of my clothes from family members, although mostly I get stuff that doesn't suit me but ok…
Also I still haven't posted the clothes I bought, I make a thread and then I don't even contribute… but they're still in the laundry… Well anyhow I bought these leopard jeans from h&m for 1$, I have mostly blue jeans so this is nice and I thought they were so cool. Also I bought a very pretty red laceup dress, a long sleeveless dress from France (that I made into a medieval costume lol), jeans (and since they're worn already they're soft!), everything for a dollar.
It's true there are some old, worn out clothes at the stores but there are some really very nice things too. I'm gonna get my friend to come shopping with me next time there's a sale~

I really don't understand high fashion.For example why buy a D&C shirt for $1000 when I can buy a Hawaiian shirt similar for $50

man i am really feeling this post it's hard to find shirts for women which aren't fucking see through.
i also hate how fucking short some women's sleeves are.

Anonymous 932

I don't have any comparison pics/proof or anything but I do have an experience to share.
Awhile back I bought jeans from UO for around $70 I believe. I really liked the fit and color at the time but after a few washes and wears they really lost their color and style and are actually pretty thin quality. They're fun to wear now cause they're kinda cute and comfy but other than that they lack the style they once had and I typically don't wear them out.
They kinda remind me of the quality of $30 pants.
On the other hand, I bought a pair of $60 levis and they are AMAZING. The color is much richer, the fabric is incredibly thicker, and the fit has stayed true despite my many wears.
I guess what I'm comparing here is brand name quality compared to a lesser known brand. Additionally, in this case, the less expensive jeans turned out to be a lot better quality. Although I have seen levis go for about $100+ online, so maybe I just got lucky with my payment of $60. Also they were most likely vintage and some people say stuff was made better/to last back then so who knows.

I found this video very informative and I liked the format of it being a video because you can directly see the difference between the details that make the price difference. I'll post more as I find them.

Anonymous 1051

Why not just get a tailor in that case? It'll probably cost less.

Anonymous 1054

Not 950$ better. And "lasts longer" often means dry clean only.
I'm a person who is willing to pay more for good, long-lasting clothes but they basically don't exist anymore. It's either cheap crap, overpriced crap, or insanely priced treat-like-porcelain crap nowadays.

There is nothing wrong with people looking unfashionable. Fashion is a hobby; fashion police are the worst.

Gothic/Alternative Thread Anonymous 613[Reply]

It says that general fashion is permitted here, so how about a gothic/alternative fashion thread? Western, not gothic lolita.

Gothic rock started in the UK in the 1980s and is an offshoot of post-punk. The subculture that was based on the music survived through the decade and to this very day still has many "followers". Many fashion styles have been connected to goth, and they will be discussed here.

A list of some goth bands (NOTE: There are way more bands than I listed. I just posted the more popular ones):
Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, Alien Sex Fiend, Christian Death, 45 Grave
Black Tape For A Blue Girl, Love Spirals Downwards, etc.

Such styles include 1980s goth, deathrock, victorian, cybergoth, etc.

Some shops:

i love the idea of haute-couture goth but i gotta say that marigold shadows just looks like all-black normie outfits to me rather than 'gothic' outfits? maybe i'm just a picky edgelord, idk.

Anonymous 966

I get what you mean and tbh I agree, but I personally dont know of any other shops like it, since a lot of goth shops arent usually just "normal" clothes. Some of their stuff seems neat though.

this skirt was created by applying paint to it and apparently it's falling apart now but i really want a long hip/leg bone skirt now

Anonymous 1006

that's so… Cool? Disgusting? Both I guess. In my opinion these skeleton tops/bottoms look odd if you only have either the top or bottom on but not both, if you know what I mean. It's like you're only half skeleton.

I saw a cute goth girl and a cute goth boy strolling around a few days ago and now I have an immense desire to be just like them. But at the same time I don't want to waste money on clothes right now.
So… does anyone have any goth diy ideas? I can only think of embroidering something…

Anonymous 1011

what kind of goth are you talking about?
i really like finding normie stuff at thrift stores and then dying/distressing it to make it look spooky. you can do a lot with a tub of black RIT dye and/or some bleach. you could also try making some headdresses/hair accessories. i made a pair of horns at one point that i just carved out of foam from the dollar store and then sealed with mod podge and painted.

I mainly shop at macys, kmart, simply 10(related to simply fashion. I would love in the future to order bulk and just sell the rest on ebay.

Anonymous 981

Anyone have any links to plus size 'jfashion'. Youknow basically the stuff spreepicky sells but now um.. as expensive.

Anonymous 983

If you’re in the US, Target has some really cute stuff sometimes!

I also love Modcloth, but they’re a little too expensive to buy from regularly.

Anonymous 984

Ah I love Modcloth! they have really pretty things I'm actually building a wishlist there. I dream about redoing my wardrobe with that site so much but as you said, it's really expensive.. As for Target I didn't know they sold things like that! thanks!

Anonymous 985

target plus section where I live is one rack. kinda sad. old navy has more.
I never really paid attention to modcloth. I just checked out their site. its great. it also reminds me of jcrew, Nordstrom, and surprising kmarts more dress up side.

Current Harajuku fashion Anonymous 969[Reply]

What's your thoughts on the fashion shown in this video?
Do you think it's unique enough to garner an interest in the west just like Lolita, fairy kei etc did?
What's your overall opinion on the current state of Harajuku fashion? Let's have a discussion!

Anonymous 978

it is a no from me, i don't think it deserves that much attention and i don't think it is special enough. let's face it, the golden days of j-fashion are gone and k-fashion is a much watered down comfy fash type.

Anonymous 980

It certainly looks interesting, but I don't think it's going to spread because it seems that the only things that can spread widely are strictly defined styles, which is pretty dumb (you're trying to be original and creative by dressing in a style defined by someone else? sure, that makes sense.)
But I like seeing all the looks on http://tokyofashion.com/photos/ especially whenever the designer of bercerk comes up,I love him

Wardrobes~ Anonymous 970[Reply]

I think it would be fun for miners to post their closets or clothing collections! Any style, any item, any way!As in, you dont have to post pictures of your actual closets, or even of your own clothes! You can make a collage of some "special" items you own if you are very lazy/shy (like me). If you can't find the exact item, I suppose you can put down stuff very similar to it! I think it would be nice to see exactly what different kinds of styles us miners have! I'll start it off~ sorry for it being so low qual I just used ms paint kek

OP, your style is cute. How long have you been wearing lolita?
I'd have to take photos of a lot of my stuff because I don't remember the names of a lot of the dresses that I own, and searching through lolibrary to find them would be painful…these are a few of the pieces in my collection, but i'll see if i can bust out the ol' dress collection and take photos later on this week.

Anonymous 972

Not too long, a little over a year, as far as actually wearing it. I've been trying to build it up for a couple years, but didn't feel right actually wearing it out or anything until I got to a certain point! ^,^ I have one full coord rn (blue jsk), and 2 more I'm still building up, with a couple stray items for more casual days. I also really like your style!~~

I have tons of liz Lisa. Here is a couple of my recent gets along with a couple of my fave dresses.

Lucky! They are so pretty, especially the lavender dress.
