About Petite Dollies

  Comment    
categories: 



Petite Dollies is run by Ruka, Eri, Alice & Katie, four petite dolls with great enthusiasm for girly fashion.

In particular, we both adore Larme-style girly fashion. Larme style is based on on the Japanese fashion magazine “Larme.” The magazine draws on feminine, retro, classical, dark, and street style influences and incorporates them into its unique dreamy, thematic, and girly world. You can find our introduction to Larme fashion here.


Our goals for the blog are:
  1. to share our insights about girly style-related trends, outfits, and happenings with the J-fashion and the broader fashion community;
  2. to provide advice and helpful guides for those who are exploring similar styles; and
  3. to spread our love for fashion and to hopefully inspire more people to pursue their style ambitions.
