New dress code for waitresses!

Three different styles, multiple, materials, and five different colors let you customize your look for cleaning your techno-dwelling.

Just before the start of summer, Japanese fashion label M Kikaku released its line of fairy tale heroine swimsuits, featuring nods to the stories of Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, and Little Red riding Hood. But with September winding down, it’s now too cold to hit the beach, and so M Kikaku is back again with another line of cute and sexy fashions.

The Cyber Maid outfit combines the 19th century style cues of the classic maid uniform with modern, techno-inspired lines and materials. The result is something that looks at once both traditional and futuristic.

To make the ensemble look even more cutting-edge, you have your choice of three different materials: satin, metallic material, or glossy enamel leather, which M Kikaku respectively describes as the “elegant,” “cyber,” and “fetish” options.

▼ Left to right: satin, enamel, metallic

There are also three styles of skirt to select from. Pictured above it the billowy round skirt, but if you’d prefer something more form-fitting, there’s the tight miniskirt is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

And if you’re looking for more leg coverage, there’s also the tight long skirt.

But even those aren’t all the customization opportunities. If the standard black-and-white color scheme is a little too stereotypical for your tastes, the round skirt version is also available in red, blue, gold, and silver.

▼ The long skirt can also be had in blue, gold, and silver, while the mini skirt is available exclusively in black.

Even though M Kikaku designates the different Cyber Maid uniforms by their “skirt” type, they’re actually dresses, and can be worn without the connected collar/sleeves the models are seen posing in.

The dress and sleeves are bundled together for a price of 25,950 yen (US$234), while the dresses alone can be purchased for 13,950 yen.  Delivery scheduled for late November.

Beautiful Japanese maid uniform bikini sets are really kawaii!

Now you can go swimming in your maid’s costume this summer.

Japanese online swimwear retailer Pixy Party is making a name for itself with cute and sexy collections designed to make girls look like adorable waterside pixy fairies. This summer, they’re dedicating a whole line of bikinis to a different type of fantasy, with the “I Love Maid Lovely Bikini Set” featuring black-and-white numbers with lace, buttons and bowties in three eye-catching designs.

▼ The first style features a lacy drawstring top and cute black-and-white briefs that perfectly replicate a maid’s uniform with bowtie details.

▼ The second design comes with equally pretty details, including a lace neck strap and tiny black buttons.

▼ The third design adds some maid-style frills to the straps, along with a thin, flowing black ribbon.

The company mentions that the outfits are designed to be worn in and out of the pool, at events like summer outdoor festivals.

While the lace details and embellishments are firmly sewn in to withstand use in water, the bikini tops are said to pair well with shorts and skirts when worn at outdoor events.

Brave maids, of course, are free to wear the bikinis whichever way they like, and can even play mix-and-match with all three sets.

The bikinis are available in small, medium and large sizes, and are currently available to purchase online for 5,184 yen (US$50.38) each, for delivery within Japan, or outside Japan if you use Japanwebshopping!

Japanwebshopping.com gets a Spring make-over.

It’s May, the flowers bloom, the birds lay eggs, the smell of fresh green grass tickles your prefrontal cortex….memories from  happy times are triggered and a feeling of nostalgia flows through your body. Life is good.  But May isn’t just a month of memories, it’s also a month of renewal, new wallpapers are chosen, Ikea is busier than ever and websites get a sunny make-over. Japanwebshopping has been sporting a very dark look, yeah we are freaks and we’re proud of it! Problem is that it was maybe a bit too otaku and scared away the casual shopper. We went to work and created a lighter and easier accessible site, while still holding on to our beloved black and gray (that we are great Yohji Yamamoto fans is something that goes without saying).

Let us know what you think about it, your opinion greatly matters to us.

JWS japanwebshopping website renewal.

Let me first thank you all dear customers/friends who have been putting your trust in our service, without your help we’d all be working for other companies and we wouldn’t enjoy our jobs/lives as much as we do now.

We’ve been  getting the most surprising and unusual requests and thereby expanding our horizon in what you want and we learn what makes our fellow human being tick. Communicating with folks from all around the world has been a challenging at times (we had to bring in a part-time Spanish speaker/translator  and on a rare occasion a Russian translator), but besides  these rare hiccups, chatting with you through Skype/WordPress/mail and Facebook has been a blast.

We also value your input a lot, and a common complain was that our website loaded like snail…our mistake was that we tried to put as much information and connecting links in it as possible, thereby creating a headache for those without high speed internet access.

So we went a bit simpler this time, and changed the look to a more material/metal look. The pages load a bit faster and it’s definitely easier to the eye. Our love for manga and anime are also more present this time around.

This dark metallic look continues in the separate product pages.

We still haven’t completed the whole site yet though(especially the Japanese section), but we’re working hard to have it finished before Christmas.

Thank you all so much for your patience and in the meantime we will continue to be the best/safest/cheapest (and most personal) personal shopper for you.

Shibuya 109… a truly iconic department store.

Every time I head back to my motherland the Netherlands, I’m struck by the decreasing shopping quality… when you stroll through the cities, no matter what city, you’re met by the welcoming neon signs of franchises selling their same products all over the country. One Gap shop here, another Hema (Dutch department store) there, further up you’ll find a Nike shop next to a H&M shop. Our fashion is Ikeaing, yes the Ikea phenomena turned into a 2015 verb. People are turning into Smurfs, instant fashion, instant furniture, instant style…nothing is original anymore. All we wear or use is mass produced inferior stuff without character and for those brave ones who prefer quality and their own unique style,  they must be prepared to open their wallets..wide .

Not so in Japan, where each city, each department store, each shopping street has an incredible variety of different brands and shops. Shops which cater to the financially challenged and the “a gold card is for paupers” clientele, and everybody in between.

Such a wide variety of brands, styles and tastes…no wonder famous fashion divas like Kate Perry, Madonna and so many others pick up their inspiration from the streets of Shibuya and Harajuku.

One of Japan’s most iconic department store is Shibuya 109 (ichi maru kyu) or Tokyu, located across the street from Shibuya Station.
