Yesstyle's OOTD: Ghost of Harlem

ghost of harlem, rokku gyaru, yesstyle review

I wore rokku gyaru the other day as it had been a while since I've done it, and I just had to wear this Ghost of Harlem dress from Yesstyle. I'm so happy that they sell brands on their website, especially as it's quite hard to get Japanese brand online without having to pay an extortionate amount. This is actually my first rokku-branded item (can you believe it?) and I kind of want to buy more now... But I've got to think about my bank. One day, Lizzie, one day!

It wasn't 'too' cold to wear, seeing as we're already closing in on December, but I can see myself layering this dress up with a sheer blouse underneath. Rokku is great for layering up and I could always switch up my New Look shoe boots for over-the-knee ones.

Agejo Gyaru on the Catwalk ~ Hyper Japan!

Hey everyone! How are you today?
I went to Hyper Japan for the first time last weekend! My friends have always told me that I should go, so one day I caved and decided to check it out. I saw that they had a fashion show so I applied to represent agejo, and they accepted me! I was so happy >\\\<

I stayed at Chewiee's house the night before and then she played with my hair the next morning. I wasn't allowed to look until it was done and oh my gosh she is amazing! My hair looked so big! I was very close to God that day tehehe.

I Wish I Was Better At... Gyaru Hair!

cute gyaru hairstyle


I've been into gyaru for quite a while now but there was always something lacking in my appearance; the gyaru hair. Work and uni took quite a lot of my spare time so I haven't been able to experiment that much, but with uni over I can hopefully try some new styles out. This idea was enforced when my girl Chewiee did my hair for Hyper Japan (see pics here) and I really want to focus more on my hair and get the basics down!

To help myself - and hopefully you - out I've compiled a collection of both video tutorials and picture tutorials. Let's work on this together!

Sponsored Review: HimeNailShop

Hey cuties! How are you this weekend? Having fun?

I've had a huge obsession with false nails lately... Because of my job I can't really wear the super long ones but I have slowly started getting used to wearing them! I think my longest pair were my Halloween ones that I did... But everyone starts from somewhere, don't they? 

To me, nails are a huge part of gyaru! I haven't really thought it before but the tiny details do really make the coord complete! That's why I was really happy when I saw that my friend Heather started selling some of her nails on Etsy >////< Now I can have easy access to short but pretty false nails! 

The nails I received were these gorgeous pink to purple glitter ombre ones that actually have some cute crystals on them! I asked for the short option because she does both long and short nails!

Please note that also this is a sponsored review, these thoughts are 100% my own!

Agejo Gyaru at MCM Expo!

Hey everyone! How are you? Hope you're having a good weekend so far!

Last week I went to MCM Expo! I did OTT agejo gyaru and I was quite nervous about this because I've never done this before, but then I thought about all of the amazing people I was going to see ଘ꒰◍ॢ•ᴗ•◍ॢ꒱༌✩ plus I really wanted to wear my new MA*RS socks and Ruby Rose headband that Charli got for me

I met my friend Melissa at expo and after going through the queue we headed straight to meet a few of my friends. It was a bit confusing because everything is split into two rooms now... But it means that there are more stalls to buy from tehehe. So for the rest of the day we scoured the stalls and bought lots of goodies! I did a lot of running around after amazing cosplayers and at one point I actually said to someone, "No please don't go! I want to take a photo of you!" Sad, I know ^^" Here are some photos!
