SOUL STEALER: JapanLA Clothing Holiday 2012 Lookbook – GIVEAWAY (closed)

JapanLA Clothing is launching their very first collection, which happens to be with JapanLA’s beloved friend, Hello Kitty! I was fortunate enough to work with them on their lookbook and am really proud of what they’ve been able to accomplish for their first line. Giveaway information is below for those who wish to skip my text.

Everything in their Holiday 2012 collection is made is the U.S.A., where they could locally meet with the manufacturers to ensure all their designs came out the way they wanted and to their quality requirements. The end result is a high quality line that will excite fans of Hello Kitty, even in this crazy, over saturated market.

Our entire team was phenomenal and we had a blast. The Pandora station we were listening to was one point, changing music to match some of our outfits. I have to give a special thanks to my buddy mmmtangerine for letting me borrow one of his strobes for the shoot!

This was Stephiee’s first time styling a shoot, but with her natral sense of colorful fashion, she did a fantastic job showcasing the different ways people can style all their pieces aside from the basic t-shirt and leggings combo (not that there’s anything wrong with that; it’s my basic go to look).

Photographer: Irene Yuen
Models: Twigglet & Rachel Annamarie

For anyone concerned with the length of the skirt, ModCloth will be selling a version that is 3 inches longer than the one in this shot.

    entering for the Galaxy Leggings

  2. Eeeee! These are wonderful! I love HK.

    I’d like to enter for the galaxy leggings! They’d look so cute with boots~

  3. I love those photos! The line looks super kawaii <3 I would die of excitement if I won the face dress! Obviously, I'm entering for the face dress 😉

    Wish I could go tonight! Hope y'all have great time!

  4. Tweeted on Twitter@spookysweets. I also reposted this on my Tumblr @spookyvonsweets. Oh Yeah, and on my FB. I’d love the HK Face dress, but the leggings are super hot too! So I’m all entered to win. Thanks

  5. 😀

    Already buying the dress.. so I’m soo happy you’re offering the galaxy leggings as a substitute! That’s so thoughtful! Here’s to hoping, wishing, dreaming! <3

    1. It’s actually a great strapless. A few of us were discussing how it has a good elastic hold on the back and it doesn’t hold tightly around the armpit area so you avoid that unappealing fat pinching action. :]

  6. How much would I love those galaxy legging….so kitty much…I think it’s key pieces like that make such a pop statement, how can I not want to rock those bad boys…hotness, but pure cuteness!! ^_^ <3

  7. I entered to win the face dress! I really love your stuff and really wish I was in LA to go to the launch party. I would leave the place broke but happy! haha good luck to me! 😀
