Kawaii, like Hawaii with a K, in pronunciation, at least. This trend is influenced by Japanese art and it's super cute. No, really. "Kawaii" directly translates from Japanese to mean "cute." And that's just what it is. I'm discussing the ins and outs of this delightful trend today on Studio 5. Fun!
Take a look at some of the cuties I found while visiting Japantown in San Francisco last month.
No huffing or puffing required. These cuties are fluffed up all on their own. And they're bitty, which makes them all the better!
These cute little containers make storing those tiny embellishments a happy experience.
One of my FAVORITE aspects of my Japantown experience was the pen parade. Beautiful writing instruments as far as the eye can see!
