I came across this exhibition/pop-up shop via several instragram accounts I follow, and of course namely by Rio Ninomiya's account. She is a stylist in Japan, and an all around cute girly girl. Her taste in girl style and culture is perfect so when I saw she was holding a pop-up shop concurrently with the launch of her new zine I put it on my To-Do list immediately.

That day I was lucky enough to meetup with Noora again, and we went together! This was a dream for me, not only was able to hang out with a friend from half way across the world, but we could visit a limited time event that appealed to our tastes. We also did a twin outfit with our matching Katie babaydoll and tees so we got a lot of compliments :)
I'm sure you can tell by now I thought everything was to die for, the pop-up shop was not only a shop but it had a ton of displays and fixtures so it had the feeling of a cute room. They kindly allowed us to take photos, and it was hard to decide which little details to capture. There was a vintage phone, fans, a wall collage, books, ribbons, everything you need for a proper girly lifestyle.

There were a few items that were limited to this exhibition, including a gown by Verybrain and the Gold Collection by Memnon. The Verybrain gown was so cute but I wasn't convinced by the half sleeves and price tag, but I knew I needed a gold Memnon item. I picked the seashell purse/pouch since I already have the tablet case and a lip pouch.

I hope you had fun seeing the pictures, a glimpse into just one of the many wonderful limited time events and exhibitions that happen in Japan!
