    She looks so beautiful, love how soft and casual her outfits are.

    The bows down the front of the leg are pretty darn chic!

    Cute girl. I really like her easygoing style. The second shot is the best – both her outfit (adorable) and the photograph itself.

    Great style but wow, her skinniness is distracting!

    I’ve seen this woman before in your posts. She is always very chic. I always feel inspired by her in a way that others don’t.

    she looks good in both stripes and polkadots!

    How cute is she? She sure knows how to accentuate her petite frame. Those tights!

    I love the hat in the second photograph especially. It seems to give the outfit an unexpected addition that allows the ensemble to stand out even more!

    the second photo is so adorable and I love the bows going down her legs

    They are very very cute, so natural, but the second pic it is my favourite, i love juxtaposition of stripes and chic hat!

  28. Gasong

    October 16, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    She look so fragile and nice in these outfits.

    Love the bows! Its so hard to tell if it is tights or a tattoo which makes it so interesting, a fresh way to do bows.

  30. Gina

    October 16, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Are those tattoos or leggings?

  31. jen

    October 16, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    Love that leg thing. And the “fashionista tuck”in t he second pic.

  32. LIZPR

    October 16, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    I love the whimsical quirkiness of a Japanese woman’s style! I find the first look nothing special but I like the 2nd look. The third is cute, especially the bow-ribbon titghts, though the outfit is far too big. Really gapes in the sleeve hole area.

    I’d love to feed her a big steak to put some blush in her cheeks!

    would really like know.

    October 16, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    Perhaps she is small-boned and tiny by birth, which can´t be helped, but some right clothing would be needed here.

    She’s so bad ass int he first photo, playful in the second and terribly frail in the third..

    Love the polka dots dress in the third picture a little bit too short but adorable!

    Completely, beautifully effortless. She manages to make simple garments look special by playing with length and volume, and little whimsical touches.

    October 16, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    When I see a fit like the second photo, I think to myself “this person is hiding behind their clothes.” But that’s not at all the case here, is it? Love how a mismatch of clothing and attitude can make a look even more memorable.

    She is the cutest person I have ever seen. just adorable! And what a great body she has! her legs are so pretty. She just has this innocence and fun that other girls don’t have. her fashion is so imaginative.

    Tiny girl yes, big style definitely x

  51. Martine

    October 16, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    The leg bows are they a stencil or a tat? Great either way. If they sold them as a temporary tat, I would love to buy them!!!!! It really is sexy on her.

    This is one of those people that could charm you wearing a potato sack. She looks like a pixie. She just has a magical quality about her.

  54. AmyCane

    October 16, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    Back to front tights, I think-sparky styling if so. Love the second shot-how do we call that kind of hat?

  55. Martine

    October 16, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    Am I the only one that thinks the exaggerated sleeve holes in the third picture are very sexy? Its certainly being done more and more, and I think its a great way to show some unexpected skin. the third outfit is the best.

    October 16, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    Sartorialist, Sartorialist, I love you, I love you…BUT bring on a few girls every now and then who have a little meat on their bones! Of course all the women you post are beautiful, but I live in NYC, and I know for a fact there are some well-dressed fuller-sized women. Give me a 12 even, and I’d be thrilled… You help democratize style, and you represent different populations so well…except for us chunksters! <3

    Im almost sure that the bows are thights, I think Ive seen them in Primark. She just wears them unlike other people at front of her legs which is cute :)

    There is also another verion as the following.

  102. Julia

    October 17, 2011 at 11:27 am

    I like the nautical edge, but I agree her thinness is distracting…the style just doesn’t look that good on a body that lacks vitality and health (e.g. the requisite athleticism to sail a boat or do anything besides take snaps and stand on the sidewalk). I like to see people and clothing that are self-possessed and functional. To me these photos show a sallow delicacy.

  103. bisbee

  105. Alecia

    I don’t really see how this girl is “too thin”… she’s no thinner than many of the women on this site. I think it’s rude and presumptive to say that due to her size she lacks health or strength. Plenty of thin people are also quite strong.
    I think she’s a great size.

    Way too many comments using the word ‘cute’ – not a good sign when discussing an adult! Personally, I just can’t really cope with this whole baby doll thing! On the upside it’s not a regular look for this blog for which I am eternally grateful.

    She’s crazy skinny. She’s got a great style, though, and a unique presence.

  114. Lovely, well into her 30s at that!

    October 18, 2011 at 5:56 am

    Rei looks absolutely lovely.

    Japanese women age extremely well; as a fellow Asian, I would venture to say that she’s someone already in her 30s.

    Yet, she rocks it.

    Many have been bemoaning the “fact” that women featured on this blog are too young, too pretty, too thin. And that’s why they look great in their clothes. Not true. Anyone can look great with the right attitude. At any age.

    in love with the last look!

  118. Martine

    October 18, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    “Cute” is a wonderful compliment in my opinion. I would rather someone thought I was cute then thought I was sophisticated or powerful looking any day. For one thing it implies a happy and pleasant aura, which the other two do not. But Rei doesn’t dress like a child or doll. She simply has a haunting, youthful quality of her own. Its lovely.

  119. Jas

    October 20, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    She’s cute although sometimes she looks like she’s in her 20′s and then she looks like someone in her 50′s, especially in the 2nd photo.

    I wonder why people think its OK to talk about a person being thin in a negative way, but if someone so much as says the words “curvy” people have an insane reaction.

  127. julian

    September 9, 2012 at 8:22 am

    The top outfit is ok, very casual as if she’s on the way to the gym, whereas the other pics, in complete and utter contrast, display ‘fashion overkill’ in my opinion

    Each to their own though, just not my ‘thing’
