One Item Five Ways: Missguided's Fluffy Pink Skirt


I was looking through my blog when I realised that it's been ages since I had done one of these posts, and I'm trying very hard not to splurge so I think it's time for another one! I'm going to make it my goal to do one of these every month. Not only will this save me from spending but it'll help me figure out how to make do with what I have.

This time I'm going to do five outfits with this gorgeous fluffy baby pink skirt from Missguided. Honestly I feel so barbie-like when I wear this, it's amazing. The only downside to this skirt was that it got fluff everywhere - quite a lot of my clothes that this has been in contact with is covered with the stuff! Nevertheless it's super cute, and I'm really glad that I bought it in the end as Missguided haven't brought out any cute items since. Maybe one day...

Wear What You Love

Ever get that feeling where you don't really fit into a particular style? I've been feeling this for so long that it's become normal for me. I have tried sticking to one style, but the more I told myself to do that, the more I rebelled against it until it got to a point where I was a chaotic mess. I just couldn't make my mind up! I kept creating posts saying, "from now on I'm going to do X style!" But then I changed drastically almost as soon as I posted it. It was so annoying!

So now I've come to terms with what I truly am - a style chameleon. I've always known I was one but I didn't really want to face it... Accepting this made me feel so much better! Don't get me wrong, I do envy gyaru who strongly stick to one style and rock it, but that didn't work out for me. Agejo was the only style that lasted more than a few days (it actually turned into a few years) and I'm still going strong with it but I tend to dabble with other styles every now and then.

This made me think back to when I first found gyaru and tried out lots of different styles, so I went through my whole blog and put together a collage of each of my favourite outfits & selfies from my favourite styles.

Recent Himekaji Purchases!

I can't get enough of himekaji now. It's just the perfect style for me - it's super cute, and totally wearable for the everyday life. If I had to choose a version of himekaji though it would be old school; I just love the big hair and dramatic makeup...

I've been desperately trying to expand my himekaji wardrobe and seeing as it's still freezing in England I decided to have a look around for any winter items. I really needed some sweaters and things that I could layer underneath that would also look cute but lately all of the stores have been releasing their Spring collections so it's really difficult to get any winter items. I always seem to be late in buying seasonal items! Luckily I managed to grab a few items before they sold out, and it felt like Christmas when everything arrived.

How to Incorporate Gyaru into Your Everyday Life

The life of being an everyday gyaru is a dream.
Imagine just walking out the door everyday looking flawless from head to toe and being the perfect gyaru. False lashes? Check. Amazing hair? Check. The concept of it is just amazing, picture perfect. But then reality kicks in - the everyday gyaru probably gets up a few hours earlier just to look that good, and that doesn't really work out for everyone.

Truth is, the majority of gyaru don't do it everyday. There is no reason to put yourself down if you're not wearing the makeup and doing the hair 24/7. What matters is that you're still gyaru, and that you do it at every chance you get. Working a 9-5 job where you can't wear makeup? That's cool, do it on the weekends!

It's all about making it work to your lifestyle. Here are a few tips I picked up along the way on how to incorporate gyaru into your everyday life...
