Sailor Moon

Japanese bookseller Kinokuniya is one of my favorite places to shop for paper goods; so I was surprised to find they now carry a small selection of clothing from Beth by Victorian Maiden. Never heard of it? Me neither, so I did a bit of research on Harajuku girls and contemporary Japanese fashion. This sailor collar coat is in the "Lolita" style, for the young lady with a disposable income and penchant for girly Victorian clothing. Sweeten the deal with red patent mary janes, patterned hosiery and white gloves . ($388)

The one across from Bryant Park on 6th between 40th and 41st. Great new location with cafe upstairs.

Tokyo Rebel, a boutique in NYC can order Victorian Maiden clothing for you. It's very difficult to find this brand in the states. The coat featured here is no longer available, but there are other pretty alternatives here:
