    her smiles and giggles are too precious, and very welcome at a time when often only solemn is considered chic.

    A friend of mine who is not Japanese but tiny can't wear heels because her feet are too small. Shoes for women usually begin at size 5 and she is a 4. This condemns her to shop for shoes in the girls department. These golden flats are such an inspiration. thanks.

    Many elements in these pictures make them exceptionally likeable: her smile, her style, she's wearing shoes she can actually walk in, she's over 30, she's of normal height. More of such personalities, please!

    She's great. Thanks for posting these photos as a set. It's inspirational to see how she uses the same items to create different outfits.
