Shibuya Gal 10/04/15: Pick Up

12:50 AM

It's Friday - yay!

Unfortunately I have to work this weekend in order to take my midweek holiday next week.

Oh well, I like my job so I can't complain.

This post contains the highlights from Don Quixote's free Shibuya Gal magazine.

I previously introduced you to the models and here you can check out clothes, hair styles, lenses and street snaps.

I wont make too many comments because I think you guys know the trends as well as I do.

And I want to watch South Africa vs Mexico at the same time, haha!

Let's start with a feature on DQ's Tokyo Cover Girl range:

For just under 4000yen you can get a 3-piece set that imitates looks by other high profile brands.

It's an interesting concept.

However, having examined them in the shop I think the pieces are of too poor a quality to interest me.

I'm no label snob but you get what you pay for and I don't want to pay for cheap fabric and bad stitching.

They look good in pictures though and it's a good way to check out hot coordinates.

I think I like the fringed belt look the best.

Next up is a feature on spring trends.

Both: inner - Uniqlo, outer/bottom - EMODA

Cap - one way, Jacket - Zara, T-shirt - one spo, Skirt - CECIL McBEE

Jacket: FREE'S  MART, Inner - dazzlin, Shorts - SLY, Headband - H&M

(L) Jacket - sneep dip, One piece - SPIGA. (R) Jacket- CECIL McBEE, One piece - one way

Next up, a bizarre feature on doing a gal-style wedding (why???)

Next, hairstyles. Unfortunately they didn't give tutorials but the pictures are helpful. I like the short styles, a little bit more unusual than the usual long curls.

Next, colour contacts:

Finally, my favourite - street snaps!

These pictures didn't really push any boundaries, but maybe it's a more accurate portrayal of what most girls are really wearing.

And that's it folks!

Mexico have just equalised, so I'm a happy girl.

I'd be happier if I could have scanned these pages instead of just taking photos.

Well, they'll have to do.

I'm a little tired of the Spring trends now so I hope the next issue comes out soon!
