Around the World: Harajuku Lovers

You know what sucks? When you really want to find something, but directions are tough shit, so you never can. I went to Harajuku twice to try and find paragon of awesomeness Faline, and failed twice. Only last night was the love discovered and realized.

I adore Faline. It shouldn't be missed, but the store is so damn hard to find that it usually is.
Foxy lingerie (Kiki de Montparnasse, anyone?)? Vintage designer stuff? One-of-a-kind Fafi goods and killer backissues of the bombest magazines this side of the Pacific? Swear I'm in love. This store is so bomb it should be outlawed or something. I was so glad to find it.
I almost didn't. I almost gave up. Don't be like me! Let me help you:

Finding Faline 101
1. Walk straight from Harajuku station to Jingumae until you see Gap.
2. Walk down the street past LaForet.
3. Keep going until you hit Takeshita.
4. Keep going on Takeshita! Don't give up! Pass the mall and keep looking to the left until you see the sign that says "Bambi + Faline".
5. Turn left, look for intense pink, and there you are!
Hopefully, it won't take you three visits, like it did me. This shit is so bomb. Highly recommended.
P.S. Keep on the lookout on July 21st! I start guest-blogging for the hella, hella tight lady Erika of Do it at the Disco! Check out starting Sunday too where fellow Peach Pit babe Valentina guest-blogs ;-)

I am so mad jealous of you girl! Want to send me a present from this awesome store? Like something really cheap and/or kinda tacky? Cause those really are my fav kind of presents.

Congrats on the DIAtD gig, fellow future guest blogger! I'm excited to see your posts.

Awwww, man! I wish, I wish! Everything there was super-amazing, and super expensive. It was like going to FAO Schwartz, because everything is expensive but you want it. There was Uffie vinyl on the floor and I almost considered stealing it.
Ahh, you start in a matter of days! Really stoked to see it-- get ready for your comment boxes to overflow!

OMG this place sounds amazing! Uffie vinyl? Loves. Sooo uber lucky to be in Japan! My friend, who's half Japanese went to Harajuku Street and got a ton of expensive, like gothic Lolita-esque clothing. Happy amazing shopping girl! Can't wait to see both of you on the blog!
