Reading a post from my friend na-chan from natsukashii café I found this magazine I felt in love with. I made a research throught the internet and found some great scans and I saved and edited some of my favorites on my computer. This is going to help me to find inspiration to put together future outfits, and I hope it inpires you too. It is a lovely simple fashion style. Na-chan says: "Liniere seems to target girls age 20s-40s-ish who are into natural and lovely and serene living, and is a verylarge magazine (about 200 pages)" Sounds great to me...Then she says: "Most of the fashion coordinates are what we might call in the states, "frumpy." And yeah, one could think so, with some of the outfits at first sight.
But then in the comment section, a comment form my friend Rhiannon from my sencha days days caught my attention: I never really thought of it as frumpy, but rather elegant and stylish and suitable for women of all ages. Western and Japanese fashion sees things in such different ways... ^^
I agree with that. Everything is about perspective and one should wear and do whats feels right for you.
What this style says to me is this: Im comfortable with myself, Im natural, free spirit, I love and enjoy simplicity and I feel so good being true to myself.
Life is stressful enough to make it more complicated by wearing thigh uncomfortable garments.
This is a great fashion style for everyday life... Leave the "more fashionable" things for special events like parties... Enjoy the lots of scans I put together... Have fun...
