DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Mini For Target Collection

I know, I know. It’s just a clothing line! Lighten up! And it’s so kawaii as the ads keep telling me, forcing the word on me like a pacifier to the lips of a crying, reluctant babe. (Wouldn’t be surprised if Gwen Stefani had tried to trademark the Japanese word for “cute” some time in the last 5 years or so.

Can you even find it on a map of Tokyo? Don’t tell me you’re a fan of Gwen. No, seriously, girl…don’t. I really really want to continue liking you.
