I have to preface this post by saying I sometimes think Gwen Stefani channeled me when she came up with her Harajuku-loving persona. As a techie, I am constantly looking to the Japanese (and Chinese) markets to check out their amazing and forward-thinking technologies. Along the way, I've fallen in love with the whole colorful, eclectic and fun Harajuku style and the inherent chicness that accompanies the whole attitude. Still, I am not sure what I think of a new trend of decorating your cell phones with so many jewels and glittery gels that it looks like a wedding cake.
On the one hand, I would never mistake my boyfriend's Blackberry for my own in the morning, but I might feel shy whipping it out in a meeting and I think it would somehow brainwash me into thinking I need a beautiful cupcake - everyday. I guess if I am going to embrace colorful fashion I might as well celebrate it by adding some pizazz to my phone. You should check out the gallery of delicious-looking cell phones, read more
So what do you think? Japanese girls have been pimping out their cell phones for years, but this new style has an added element of glitter and beads. I say if Paris Hilton starts, it will catch on soon enough here.
