Don’t misread me! I’m not trying to be disparaging or criticizing!
The (very young) lady was barely 140 cm tall and all so compact!
I noticed her inside Shizuoka JR Station as I was waiting for my train to Shimada (work. I would come back later).
She was a jumble of fashions mrap to goth and whatever in between although she seemed very sweet when I heard talk to the girlfriend she had been waiting for.
A fashion almost uniquely found among high school students out for fun!
Her garb is so zany and colorful.
So, why not?

She looks as a very nice person indeed and the style is quite amusing. It must be difficult to be a bit chubby in a society when most women have feather weight…
Actually, people don’t realize that 90 % of Japanese women are drab and fatter than one might think!
Staying drab is playing it safe, so I must say I encourage “plain loooking” ladies to come out of the ordinary!
After all the true reason for d\fashion is to hide what you don’t want to show and let people see what’s good about you.
If it is not possible, cover it all the best way possible!
Oh, I’m relieved then! I was warned about being unable to find standard European sizes for women… (Clothes shopping is obligatory when I go to Japan!).
What you describe is the definition of elegance and not fashion. Sadly the two concepts have been separated for such a long time and don’t mean the same for the majority of worldwide populations… (let’s the elegance is often mixed up with being up-to-date in fashion). I see we’ll have not only food conversations when I finally visit Shizuoka 😉
I’ll have a field day tempting you!LOL
But we might have to talk to hubby first! LOL
Haha, love the hat which tops it all off – though, she looks a bit surly!
Actually she was worrying about her friend coming! When the latter arrived she had an enormous smile as big as her glasses!
