WIWT: Rock ‘n Roll High School with Aymmy in the Batty Girls

Aymmy1

Last weekend, I met up with friends for brunch, and then we went to Japantown to shop and take photobooth pictures (and buy cupcakes!). At the New People building in JTown, I saw the most amazing varsity jacket with embroidery depicting tigers eating cheeseburgers. WHAT!! I was like, “WE ALL NEED TO BUY THIS JACKET.” Then, I looked at the price tag and said, “Okay, maybe we can all share one….”

The brand was Aymmy in the Batty Girls. I’m completely in love with the whole spirit of the brand, based on a highschool girl named Aymmy who loves punk rock and zombie movies and either lives in the 50s or is obsessed with the 50s. I can’t read the Japanese on the site, so I don’t know the whole story, but they did translate it onto a piece of paper at the store, but I didn’t read the whole thing! They have a pop-up in the New People building, and you can see toooons of their products, from tshirts to jackets to cheerleader skirts to backpacks to rompers. So many goodies!

Since the embroidered jacket was super out of my price range, I opted for the cheeseburger tshirt that I couldn’t stop thinking about. I probably could have left without buying anything, but then Mars grabbed the cheerleader skirt, and Steph grabbed the junk food romper, and I didn’t want to feel left out! I figured the shirt might not fit anyway, because Japanese clothes are small, and sometimes my arms don’t fit in the arm holes, but I guess it’s supposed to be a super loose-fit shirt, and my limbs fit in there just fine. SOLD!

I paired my burger shirt with rolled up skinnies, sequins Converse, ruffle ankle socks, a high pony, and heart glasses. Super casual but super fun! I usually feel that skinny jeans and flat shoes make me feel squatty and chubby, but I think they just fit the theme too well!

P.S. Stay tuned for my Mother’s Day present YouTube tutorial! The project is kinda out-there, but it’s what I’m actually making for my own mom :).

      I know!! It’s so spendy!!! When I went to Japan once a looooong time ago, I didn’t buy much because everything was so pricey, and I’m bummed about it all the time, so I was like, what the heck…….

    • TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! No, not yet. I’ve been trying to figure out if it’s going in my second book or not… And I keep re-vamping my book proposal, so we’ll see 🙂

      • Melissa says:

        Ooh I will patiently wait for book #2!!! I love all things Twinkie Chan!! Oh and by the way you are too adorable!

        Oh, gosh yeah – new book,new book! I too would love the hamburger scarf pattern – it’s SO cute. Just make sure to have lots and lots of copies of your new book available for your adoring fans! I would buy two right away, one for me, one for a friend. It would be ultra coolio if you could reprint the first book too!

    I enjoy the liberal use of the F-word on their T-shirts.

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I was telling my friend that I love one of their dresses, but I can’t really wear that much of the F-bomb!

  4. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! YES YES YES!
