These are a few of my favorite trends…

Greetings glorious readers! So as you know, Mark and I get married in only 26 days… and hop onto a big fancy cruise ship in only 28 days. You know I need stuff to wear on that boat, and that means… cute clothes! Here are some of my favorite trends, and a few items I recently bought to up my kawaii geek style game.

1. Lace shorts. As long as they don’t look too much like underwear, they are the perfect combination of feminine and comfortable. • 2. 2D bags. Yes! I have always wanted to live in a cartoon, and now my dreams are slowly coming true… and in so many choices! • 3. Mock thigh highs. They come in an insane amount of adorable styles, including kitties, bows, and more. • 4. All over prints… like this awesome Adventure Time one from Mighty Fine! I’ve seen rad ones of Bart Simpson, hamburgers, and so much more nonsense. I love it! • 5. Pinafores. Whimsical, childlike, and comfy. Need I say more? • 6. It’s a cat head purse. Yup! • 7. Big round bug-eye sunglasses. These ones are slightly creepy, and I just adore them! • 8. Kawaii tanks. I prefer tanks over tees in general, but this one is just spot on Totoro-tastic. • 9. Comfy, vintage, oversized tees, like this Star Wars one from Junk Food Clothing. • 10. Patterned flats, like these lamby ones from Iron Fist Clothing.

Hand picked Miyazaki Studio Ghibli Products

1. My Neighbor Totoro Bento Box. Most anime can be found adorning adorable Bento boxes – and while most Americans aren’t accustomed to eating it for lunch every day, it is still good for storing leftovers (small ones) or even jewelry and hair clips! • 2. Studio Ghibli Characters Necklace. All the Miyazaki creatures, on one beautiful necklace! It’s such a great piece. • 3. My Neighbor Totoro Pouch. What a fantastic color, and I love polka dots! Perfect for your phone or coins! Or your Calcifer… no wait… • 4. Spirited Away Music Box. Apparently there is a line of expensive but very beautiful Studio Ghibli music boxes. I assume they play lovely music from the movies. This one features No Face knitting c: • 5. Ponyo Hand Painted Box. Ideal for jewelry, hair ties, stamps, stickers, stationery… or ham. Such lovely detail! • 6. Kiki’s Delivery Service Scarf. It’s chevron, and it’s Jiji! I just love black cats, but especially ones who talk! Plus, winter is coming, so this will keep you warm on your delivery route!
