Johnny’s Talk: What To Wear To A Johnny’s Concert/ Event?

One of the hardest things for me to decide on when I go to a Johnny’s concert or event is: What should I wear? Now, I believe that fashion is very personal to everyone and what he or she chooses to wear is a reflection of who they are. Each person has their own style and what they like to wear and there is no right or wrong thing to wear to Johnny’s concerts! I personally like dresses and skirts and a more mature style of clothing, as well as when I go to Johnny’s concerts I don’t want to … Continue reading Johnny’s Talk: What To Wear To A Johnny’s Concert/ Event?

I wasn’t there through the Uchi and Kusano scandal (I didn’t become a fan of Johnnys until Fall 2008 ) but I was there through the period of 2009-2011 where they … Continue reading Diary Post: NEWS 10 Year Anniversary おめでとう〜!
