One*Spo in AMERICA (or anywhere overseas)

This is Volume 1 of Mitzi’s deconstruction of several 109 brands including Deylye, One*Spo, Japanese Lip Service, Gilfy, JSG and possibly Gladd News and LDS.

One*Spo is one of my favorite brands. Although it occupies a smaller store in 109 on the 5th floor, it also has shops in Osaka and Nagoya. The staff is one of the nicest group of people at 109 and they’re insanely helpful. It’s a very girly brand so those who are interested in hime or were ex-lolita, it’s a good place to check out!

For the overseas One*Spo style we’re going to focus on feminine accents, sheer, frills, sequins, and a simple palette (most One*Spo outfits are featured in cream and navy or black and white).

The Real Pieces

Here are a few pieces from my wardrobe to show One*Spo’s style. Keep in mind I was monotone obsessed lately and One*Spo has more color choices such as cream and navy and red accents.

One*Spo beret and party dress.

“Ice Skater Dress” with the en vogue black on black dot pattern

Super sparkly disco ball with a feminine belt also from One*Spo

Sadly this has been stretched out by my non mannequin boobs, but it’s One*Spo’s take on the Chanel Suit with heart buttons. The top is a velvet tube top with lined corset back that can also be worn as a skirt.

Their take on a simple black everyday dress in comfortable fleece with rock stud accents.

The Overseas Version
Once again I’ve used Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters as easy accessible options for those overseas. The “E” on items means it feels like an exact piece One*Spo has in their stores.

While this is in red, it’s got an almost exact look to One*Spo’s most popular party dress.

One*Spo loves to do black sheer pieces and this one looks like one from their Winter catalog.

These two cardigans are classic examples of girlyness and frill combined with One*Spo detail sensibilities.

Coordinates to help you start

Combining these two items together is a great way to match One*Spo’s layering.
The combination of edgy shine mixed with a girly blouse adds to both their appeals.

One*Spo also succeeds at the jacket + dress combination. Taking the classy red dress from above and combining it with one of the knit cardigans also makes it another One*Spo-like combination.

Accessories are also important to boosting a look.

This girly fedora helps add a mannish touchy while keeping with the brand.

A cream band with an all black outfit draws attention to your well done hair.

This look was used done all in one color since it’s easier to coordinate.
However a mix of colors would still make this outfit successful.
My only drawback is I did not find a good frilly skirt instead I was stuck with pants,
but a frilly black skirt is more keeping with the brand.

Wow this was a big work, please let me know your thoughts,
suggestions and other shops you’d like to hear about!
