Weekend Reading: We Heart Japanese Streets
Editor’s Note: There are millions of sites in the blogosphere and let’s face it, you don’t have time to read them all. Lucky for you (and us!), we’ve found someone who does, and she’s going to be sharing a few with you each week. Think of them as blogs to know, Twitter users to follow, online stores to shop at — and so much more! If you’re looking to expand your blogroll or source from the best content on the web, Hillary Frazier is your girl! And if you’ve got the inside scoop on a site worth knowing, send her an email!
Like a digital and endless image board, We Heart It allows you to search by keywords through a database of images of virtually anything, and then “heart” them, which collects them all into your own account. I’ve used this countless times for coming up with photo shoot ideas and, well, out of boredom. The best part is that you can download an app for your browser that allows you to “heart” ANY image on the entire internet and add your own key words so others can find it. Nothing is off limits here!
And I thought Bag, Borrow, or Steal was cool! Rent The Runway allows you to rent designer dresses — you just pick your dress, schedule a date, and they deliver it right to your door! If you’ve got an overpacked closet, hate wearing things twice, or have champagne taste and a box wine budget, this is the perfect site for you. And even better, since everyone knows women have a tendency to fib a little when it comes to their sizes, they even send you a back up size just in case! This is the best way to get the latest looks without having to commit to those trendy pieces that will be out before the season is over.
I’ve been hunting for a long time for a good Japanese street style blog, and I think I’ve finally found it! Japanese Streets is basically the Street Peeper of Japan, with endless stylish Japanese kids. They update every day, and have details of everyone shot, including occupation, age, type of style, and brands of clothing. If you share my weird obsession with Asian fashion, check out this site!
