Vintage with Far Eastern flair

I thought that we could take a virtual trip to Japan. This way we don't have the long plane ride nor the crippling jet-lag. The concept of vintage seems to be predominantly North American, so I wanted to see what the fashionistas in the far east are wearing...

Pink Vintage Dress and Hanging Suspenders in Harajuku
Boots are the stars here, along with
her peasant dress and his
casually hanging suspenders

Vintage Layers, Pink Sweater & Hats in Harajuku
Men are keeping up with vintage trends
as well as the women. The key
word here seems to be layers.

Smiling Japanese Girls in Harajuku
These girls look like they're having a
lot of fun.  On the left, she is wearing
a peasant skirt and vintage Girl Guides
hat complete with achievement pins!
Her friend has a fashionable bow in
her hair, a very fashionable accessory
in Toyko these days.

Big Hair Bow, Red & White Stockings with Garters
This cute look consists of more fun fur and
the hair bow.  Her cute fringe mini and
striped tights are vintage and fun
