Brand Focus: Anna Sui
So who is Anna Sui? It’s this adorable 45 years old Sino-American lady here surrounded by awesomely dressed beauties. She’s been on the American fashion scene for over 25 years. At the beginning, she was only designing garments, but her boundless creative energy caused her to overflow into cosmetics and fragrances. She is now the happy mother of what is nothing short of an empire lifestyle,...
Hi all, I’m just making this intro post for you to know just who is posting under the Rétromantique name. My name is Marie-Ève. I just turned 20, and as you might be able to tell, English is my second language. I am from the French province of Canada, Québec. I’ve been into Japanese music and fashion for about 5 years now, although I’ve always stuck to one until recently:...
Buffalo Bobs: Parody or Infringement?
Buffalo Bobs Vs Louis Vuitton I’ve been following Buffalo Bobs for a while now, and something about them has always bothered me: they seem pretty OK with stealing other brands’ designs. Buffalo Bobs knocks off Chanel’s logo I think it would be hard to argue that Buffalo Bobs is intentionally misleading the customer into thinking their items are from another brand, as the...
034:Buffalo Bobs Boots
fuckyeahvhost: I’m thinking of making a Buffalo Bobs pimp post tomorrow. <3 After I saw the Yoshi pic with the aformentioned BB jeans, he’s wearing similar boots. 19,950円 They also come in the Silver & Antique Gold color variation. I find these so weird looking. I’m about to bid on a similar pair of shoes by ALFREDO BANNISTER, which I think look a lot better.
New Tornado Mart Fans
Do you feel like paying ¥4830 for a fabric fan? Really, no? I kinda do. I think the tiger one will be mine.
032: BUFFALO BOBS Jeans
fuckyeahvhost: I see you there sexy jeans, that I am currently lusting after~ >_< There is a Black color variation. 16,800円 Yeah, I like these too. Buffalo Bobs has a lot of cool stuff and I should write more about them soon. However, it’s not exactly a cheap brand and not incredibly common on the discount or second-hand market. The black coated damaged ones are sick too: ...
Restaurant Review: Kazu in Montreal
When I started this blog, I did not expect that I would be talking about food here. However, I’d say a stylish Japanese restaurant certainly qualifies to be featured here. This place hasn’t even been open for three months and there is always a line to get in, and with good reason. The place is only capable of seating about twenty people and you can’t make reservations, so if you...
Why I hate Yahoo! Japan Auctions
I find myself using MBOK over Yahoo! Japan Auctions whenever possible, and it’s all because MBOK has one option that I find myself pretty much unable to live without. Why does YJ not have this button? For those of you not in the know, this button on MBOK re-lists the category or search result list you’re viewing so that the items are sorted by newest listed. This is pretty useful...
