Another Sweet Another Rinka Cover

Monday May 02, 2011   

This Sweet + Rinka cover is special because it’s the Rinka photo on the Sweet x Rinka charity t-shirt donating proceeds to victims of The Great Eastern Japan Earthquake. There’s a 2 page spread with a message and information on how to purchase the t-shirt. You can purchase it at here. I pre-ordered the white version through SMJ and just got the invoice for it so I know it just shipped! :suki:

It’s especially difficult to get your hands on a Rinka shirt. :angry: They’re always in short supply with insanely high demand. The pre-order for these tees has been open for over a month. I can’t even fathom how much they must have raised already. :up: Plus other brands have gotten behind the collab as well including Jupiter, Royal Party, DRWCYS and more. The shirts are available in white, gray, and now pink! :deco9: Pink was just added a few weeks ago. They’re very affordable at ¥2,100 :ok:

This issue also included a small tote bag from MECURYDUO. I wanted this issue because
1: I’m getting the t-shirt and I wanted the corresponding Rinka cover BECAUSE I’M A DIE-HARD RINKA FAN ^_^:deco13: and
2: I’m really, reaaaaally liking Sweet’s fashion lately and am enjoying buying the latest issues. But! ::9: This tote turned out to be really lovely and has a zipper too! :ok: I’m now using it as my daily bag. :deco2:

Sweet used to be too celeb-fashion for my tastes. :;_;: They still feature celebrity fashion but it’s played way down lately and replaced with more mid-to-high brand casual adult fashion. :deco10: Eh, there’s probably a better way to describe it but I’ll just leave it with ME GUSTA

    I really want the shirt because I’m all about donating to help Japan and there’s a cute t-shirt in it- but I can’t read the pages :(

    Hm, I’ve liked what I’ve seen of Sweet–might have to try and get an issue sometime. It seems to be my sort of fashion.

    I think I’m starting to like Rinka too–she’s pretty cute!

  7. Tori says:

    Awh, I noticed your mood theme is sick today~ feel better Jenny! *hugs*
    Congrats on scoring one of those ltd ed. Rinka tees though~ I feel like everything Rinka collabo’d gets sold out in 10 seconds, haha XD I’ve noticed that change in Sweet lately too, kinda like how JJ is less stuffy OL clothes & more casual wear~ I’m liking it!

    • jenny says:

      Thank you thank you food poison as you just read. Waaaaa. They totally do sell out even pricey coat collaborations!!! I mean, wow wow. And really she wasn’t such a big icon until her blog. It’s incredible!

  8. Nana says:

    Rinka is so lovely~~ I can’t beleive she looks soooo amazing at her age! I hope you get the shirt ASAP! I would have chosen the pink one keke.. I’m pink obsessed~

    • jenny says:

      I hope it comes soon too. It’s getting summer hot a little bit lately lol. I can’t believe Rinka is 10 years older than me. She looks amazing and dresses appropriate but still fun!

  9. JL says:

    I got this magazine even though I’ve never opened a “Sweet” magazine before. The cover and it’s lovely spring colors attracted me! But I really like the fashion in this issue, so I think I’ll be getting next month’s too. =)

    • jenny says:

      Oh lucky you liked the fashion too!!! I bought Sweet a few years ago. 2008 i think, maybe and I didn’t really like it. It’s changed a lot since then!

  10. Rinka is gorgeous! Polka dots are cute, been in love with them since I was a kid, hehe.

  11. Honeydew says:

    The bag is cute! I don’t mormally download sweet or look at it much. I think I might have downloaded the magazine once but didn’t like much of the fashion in there so I didn’t bother with a second download, lol.

    • jenny says:

      Yeah I bought an issue back in 2008 and didn’t like it. But it’s changed a lot since then. Or I have. Or both most likely lol

  12. Aoko says:

    Glad to hear you will be getting the Rinka t-shirt soon ♥!
    I haven’t purchased Sweet this month, so thank you for sharing the pictures ♥!
    I used to read/buy CanCam until Ebi-chan graduated to AneCam. Sometimes I read ViVi too. I liked Sweet and I must agree, It was mostly celeb-fashion. CanCam did change a little and sometimes I might buy an issue. Nowadays, I am reading Sweet because I loved the latest issues, we get to see different styles and all their models are famous Japanese models (and yes, It brings freebies xD!).

    OMG! That Mercuryduo tote is so cute ♥!

      I used to read CanCam too until Ebi graduated. My taste changed a bit too. But sometimes I download CanCam. I used to read Pinky and I like that Emi Suzuki is in Sweet now. Her style has evolved a lot ;). I live ViVi but I only buy it every few months because it’s a little repeatative to me. I do love ALL the street snaps in ViVi though xD

  13. Yuki says:

    These shirts are really cute♪
    Glad to heat that you get your shirt soon!
    I really like the grey one and would love to order it. But at the moment I don’t have money and I don’t know how to use a Shopping service XD

  14. Shirley says:

    I love the shirt!
    I haven’t bought Sweet in a couple months but it’s one of my faves :)

  15. Momo says:

    aww such a cute shirt, especially when rinka is on them ! haha

  16. G says:

    Your photos are pretty … How do you manage to put hearts on them :P

  17. Libby says:

    The t-shirts are cute! I really like the pink & white versions. Rinka’s such a pretty model.. she’s hapa, right? I love the hapa models, and I’m really glad that hapa models are making a huge impact on Japanese pop culture.

  18. Lorik says:

    Awww she looks so pretty ~ I love the pink one

  19. Ys says:

    Those T-shirts are adorable. The bag is super cute too. I like that is has a zip on it, a nice addition :)

  20. Jenn says:

    I bought this issue of Sweet too! I’ve been loving everything they’ve been doing lately. I even did my nails like Rinka on the cover and one of the editorials (alternating similar shade nail polish.)

    Spring fashion this year is just my cup of tea. So girly and retro and just… ahh~

    • jenny says:

      I wanted to do my nails like the cover too! But I don’t have any similar shades lol ;_;

      • Jenn says:

        It’s okay! I find that if you put a glitter top coat on top, it’d change the shade a little too. Or you can always mix the polishes. :D

  21. Bisque says:

    I saw that at the magazine store, I was wondering if I should get it or not. Maybe I will when I come back~

  22. Cindii says:

    Nice bag. I hope you get the shirt!

  23. Rinka is always so beautiful. ^_^ And that shirt is really cute!!

  24. Jenny says:

    Oh, lookie those shirts :) Very cute!! Love the bag too!

  25. mishi says:

  26. lissy says:

  27. G says:

    Mind telling me what app is it ?

  28. Souno says:

    I was wondering. What shopping service did you use to buy the shirt? Tenso? Or somebody else? Thank You

  29. Courtney says:

    The tote bag looks pretty nice and classy! :)
