I never know what to wear to amusement parks. Striking a balance between style, comfort and something that won't fly up or twist on rides is an effort in itself.

When shooting Universal Studios street style, it was refreshing to see how other park goers were dressed. Some people rocked the theme park merch from Hello Kitty printed tees to dramatic top hats and lace bows.

But the one thing that surprised me were the friends and couples wearing matchy matchy outfits. Yep, fully coordinated looks - sometimes head to toe or matching the top or bottom half. Coincidentally, Marvic linked me a Refinery29 video called 'How Korean Couples Do PDA'. It explained this modern trend in the context of Korean youth culture and how it's a material representation of affection. In Universal Osaka I asked some coordinated groups and couples why they matched.
Conclusion? It was mainly a way to show friendship or unity and because it's so much easier to find each other.

For me though, it was a jeans, boots and jacket kinda day. Frankly I'm not brave enough to try this matchy matchy trend. And who was there for me to match with? My little sister?

  3. Whoa! These looks are rockin'. And there are so many cool kids, I need to come and visit. I love the matchy-matchy trend happening over there. I've never heard about it before but I've fallen in love with the concept. Growing up in school if someone was wearing the same thing as you it was a total faux-pas. Still is today. Even amongst friends. It was way worse when a friend copied your style hahaha.

  7. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy 14 coil tattoo machine and Professional tattoo machines kits. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic.Com and Beauty Supply Florida websites.
