Japanese Ladies Fashion in Shizuoka 1: “Cutie” waiting inside the station

Sissi at With a Glass mentioned she would like to see more pictures of Japanese fashion, especially ladies, when she found one inserted in a report on a Japanese Festival!
I agreed it might interest quite a few people in spite of the title of this blog.
Mind you, it is a slightly risky job to take such pictures although a mobile phone camera is easier to use and less conspicuous than a real camera!
I don’t want to ask people to pose (unless they ask!), so I do have to be discreet and has too miss out a lot of great pictures!
Shizuoka is actually considered the hardest Prefecture to sell in Japan and it is a constant trial area for the big Tokyo companies. “If you sell in Shizuoka, you sell everywhere!” has become a proverb in Japanese fashion.
The weather being mild all year round fashion is easy to wear here although Shizuoka Fashionistas are vain and fashion slaves to the point of wearing long booots on the 1st of September even if it 35 degrees outside!
I am not inerested in taking pictures of anorexic and obese fashionistas (I wouls have to start another blog!) who have no sense of balance or harmony either!
Let’s hope I do not get arrested in my efforts to discover some cute ladies to show you!

I called this particular picture,[ “Cutie” waiting inside the station], as “cutie” is a fashion genre indeed. The young lady (18+?) above is not a complete “cutie” with frills in hair and the like, but the socks and the skirt definitely are.
I must admit she is actually quite cute!
