Kawaii Gyaru Shop Review: Lace & Ribbons

liz lisa, himekaji, winter

I can finally say that I'm now a himekaji gyaru. It sounds weird saying it like that - himekaji gyaru, it doesn't really flow well but then again just saying "himekaji" sounds weird too. Like himekaji what, exactly? Oh well what I want to say is that I've finally accepted that himekaji might just be the style I'm looking for. It's perfect for going out with friends and even for work which is all I seem to do these days!

But himekaji is still quite difficult for me in winter, so Stephanie suggested I try out this gorgeous red knit! I was going to go ahead with that when my eyes clapped on this equally gorgeous blouse. A couple of weeks later they arrived on my doorstep (you probably recognise these babies in my haul post). I swear it feels like Christmas every time I open a package - especially when I know there's Liz Lisa inside. I couldn't wait to wear everything!

First Impressions
Everything was packed neatly and she had even thrown in a pair of over-the-knee socks (pictured in my haul post) as well as a My Melody plushie which was really nice of her! The sweater was quite bulky but oh so soft, and the lace top that came with it was pretty. I was a bit worried as I'm not really into wearing lace without something underneath as my skin could get a bit irritated by it, so I made note of it for when I do wear it.
The blouse was beautiful but looked quite short - the lace part goes down to my waist where it is then just a layer of chiffon, so it might not be suitable to wear right now. It looks easy to wear though as it's quite stretchy and very soft - I could probably bundle this up and it wouldn't ruin it.

01 | The Red Knit
Oh my gosh it was SO WARM. It was perfect because it's been quite cold over here in England and all I needed to wear was the lace vest that came with it underneath and I was fine. Normally my skin would get irritated if I don't wear long sleeves but this one was okay - the knit was surprisingly soft. I just love the lace and ribbon details on the side and did I mention that it came with a lace vest? (We're pretty much getting two items for one...) I've worn this a few times since Valentine's day and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who's battling those cold winter seasons. They also come in different colours which is amazing!

02 | The Floral Blouse
It took me a while to actually wear this blouse because it's not really the right weather for it, so I waited until I went shopping with my friend Lee and I was right - it is still a bit too cold to wear it so I paired it with my white fluffy hoodie. My stomach kept getting cold because of the thinner material, so this blouse is definitely for those warm winter days. The sleeves also come up a bit short but not too short that I felt stupid which I think was helped by the fact that they were in the thinner material. Thank goodness for the elasticated cuffs! Nevertheless it is super cute. I just love the peter pan collar and the floral details on the blouse.

That's all for now cuties! I hope you liked this post and that it fed your Liz Lisa-needs haha. Don't forget to check out Kawaii Gyaru Shop for more awesome Liz Lisa (and many more brands!) and use my code LIZBEE if anything takes your fancy. Go on, treat yo'self.
