Baby Steps to Hime Gyaru!

This was going to be a post about my Christmas celebrations but seeing as I haven't taken any photos... Well, that's not going to happen but I do have a photo of my outfit and my face to make up for it! I tried out hime gyaru because I finally managed to get my hands on a Princess Melody dress. It was really short (you could see my butt cheeks) so I bought a skirt to go underneath it.

When I was doing some inspiration-searching for hime style I realised that it's probably easier for me to try out hime gyaru rather than hime kaji because it consists of a lot of pink! I'm going to try to incorporate hime into my agejo style, and my inspiration for this is Himena Ousaki. If you don't know her, she's basically the epitome of hime gyaru. Here are photos of her doing hime gyaru and agejo.

I did some more searching and decided to compare the two styles to figure out their similarities.

So things I need to look out for are:
Mainly pink clothes & shoes
OTT accessories - especially for hair and necklaces!
Princess Melody accessories & bags 
♡ Bows & frills

Pink and white is used quite a lot in hime gyaru (from what I've seen while browsing on Tumblr) whereas pink and black is used more in agejo... So I guess pink is definitely good for both wardrobes! I've also noticed that they've both incorporated bows and frills in their clothes too. Maybe it might not be too difficult for me to do this after all?

But I'm going to transition to hime very slowly! I'm taking baby steps. I'm really excited to see where this takes me - and maybe one day I can meet Himena and tell her how much she's inspired me!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post... It's probably not very useful but I like to write down my thoughts on here.

See you next Sunday!

  1. Such a shame that the dress by itself is too short u___u
    I bet hime would suit you well :D

  2. I know right? You could imagine how I felt... I was so excited when I saw that it had arrived, unwrapped it, put it on and... It didn't even cover my buttcheeks ;_; I was so upset! Luckily I did find another pink skirt to wear underneath or I would've been so depressed.

    Thanks cutie! :D Going to take my time with it though, as I still love agejo ^^

  3. Such a hopeful post! Hime gyaru is something I've always wanted to try. I just get so distracted by other styles though haha

  4. Oh my gosh I am the same! That's why I had to do the diagram in order to tell myself that I can do hime gyaru :P

  5. I have to admit I don't know the difference between Hime Gyaru and Hime Keji ^_^'''' Can you maybe explain it? I think Agejo is more "sexy" style and Hime is more cute, am I right?

    I personally love Hime Gyaru and also tried it a few times. I think since your past outfits were always princess-like, you can easily wear Hime Gyaru ^_^

  6. Aww such a cute co-ord! Shame about the length though :C but it also looks super cute with what you've paired it with!

    I've always wanted to try different gyaru styles, you're such an inspiration! (I swear you could look good in anything pfft) ❤️

    Awh really? I'm glad you think so! :D It was more of a way to give me a reason to make transitioning from agejo to hime easier for me tehehehe

  12. Thank you very much for your kind explanation ^_^ I got the difference!

  13. kawaii! i prefer hime gyaru than agejo coz it give the princess feels that every girl desire kkk! anyway love your nail as well ^^
