How cute! I saw several women dressed this way at our Japanese Friendship garden a year or so ago.

Lots of this fashion to be seen on the streets of Cambridge - but all either Japanese tourists or Language School students.

These styles are occasionally seen here, in terms of cosplay for those who are into the anime genre.

Sorry, do not know anything about Japanese fashion, but these outfits look to be from the Little Bow Peep school of fashion.

This is interesting and I can say that this fashion has not trickled down into my area.

This is a first for me. Of course, fancy boots are a fashion statement here. The kind you kick around in the dirt, not the city slicker kind. And jeans. Blue jeans. You don't seem a lot of ruffles except on our Irrigation Festival Royalty.
