Joy of Styling
shirt: Nishimatsuya skirt: Gap
I used to go to Nishimatsuya on a regular basis to look for my first child’s clothes. You won’t believe the prices you see. Prices usually range from 300 yen to 1000 yen. Unfortunately, they are a little more expensive if you convert the price into U.S. dollar with the current exchange rate, but when the exchange rate was more normal, the prices ranged from US$2.50 to US$8.00. If you are interested, click on the pictures to see the collection.
When I lived in Japan, I sometimes shopped at COMME ÇA ISM. I love their clothing line although their prices are more than I could usually afford for my kids. The shirt and skirt my daughter is wearing are both gifts. Thank you!!

Did you own a Barbie doll? I didn’t. I had this paper doll with paper clothes I was able to style with when I was very little. I don’t remember ever owning any type of dolls like Barbie dolls. I never asked for them, either.
Now I feel like I’m re-living that Barbie-doll stage through styling my own children. My older daughter prefers to dress herself, so I don’t have many opportunities to choose what she wears any more, but I do with my younger one. She already has her opinion about what she likes, but usually I can convince her to wear what I pick for her instead of letting her wear the same thing over and over.
I have not shopped for my girls in a while, but I hope to find cute and inexpensive (this is very important to me!) clothing stores here in Jakarta.
