19/09/2013 - Harajuku Fashion Walk in Paris

It's been a while! (Or at least it feels that way.) I hope you're all well~
I've been in Paris for about a week now. I'm still living in youth hostels while I search for somewhere to live, and on top of that, I've had a lot of sign-up things to do for university, so I've had no time to blog. Even though I'm homeless and really busy, I'm having so much fun! (EDIT: I am no longer homeless!)

On Thursday, Junnyan and Moco held a Harajuku Fashion Walk in Paris. For those that don't know, Harajuku Fashion Walk is an event that occasionally takes place in Harajuku, where participants wear whatever they want and walk through Harajuku together, taking photos and making friends along the way.
Unfortunately my outfit was a lot less interesting than I would have liked for this sort of event, because I only brought one suitcase of clothes to Paris, so I just had to make do with what I had.  

There was actually a lot of confusion at the beginning, because Junnyan and Moco arrived late, so I think everyone decided they weren't coming and just started the walk without them, because they'd written the route we were walking on Facebook anyway. I arrived late too, because I had to check into a new hostel that day, so I managed to catch up with Junnyan, Moco, and the 10-or-so other people they were with pretty quickly. So, we walked from L'arc de Triomphe to the Louvre. Despite there only being 10 of us (rather than the 444 who said they would attend on Facebook), it was still pretty fun. When we got towards the end of the walk, we caught up with everyone else, and it was amazing. I don't know about 444, but there were certainly a lot of people, and they all looked fabulous.  

Soon after meeting them, we reached our destination, where everyone hung around for ages chatting and taking photos. I was really happy to meet some internet friends who came from various parts of Europe!

Other photos:
 Junnyan, who is not quite as tall as his photos would have you believe haha (but cool nonetheless)

The adorable Moco, who is a lot smaller than I expected and made me look like a titan haha

Amazing shironuri by Charlène and Hitsu-Blu (their eyepatches say 'HARA' and 'JUKU')

This awesome guy is English too!

 Lesly, who is the cutest thing ever

It was a super fun afternoon! I met loads of awesome people, saw loads of great outfits and a wide variety of styles, and I also got to speak every language I know (and actually ended up playing translator a few times lol), which was fun. c: 

À bientôt!


  1. I wish to meet Moco one day, too... she is just amazing!!! ;______;

  2. Looks like such an enjoyable event and a great opportunity to mingle ^^

  3. I love your outfit!
    And wow, Junnyan really looks a lot more taller in photos (but i guess that is because he takes photos with more smaller girls like Moco XD)

  4. I would love to go to something like this! Looks so much fun, also some great fashion inspiration and a chance to meet new people :D
