Inspirational Gyaru

I've realised that it's been years since I've made a post about my inspirational gyaru. It's just so hard to find one specific gyaru nowadays as I'm easily inspired by a number of styles, but there have been a few who have been inspirational to me through thick and thin and I thought it was time to make a post dedicated to them!

Day Out with Amy & Lulu!

I'm so happy that spring is finally here - I haven't felt so energetic in ages! It's weird how much a little bit of sunlight could affect my everyday life. Only downside is that my hayfever is slowly creeping forwards, and my eyes have been super itchy for the past week.

I've got so many plans for this spring and I can't wait to get them done and dusted! I celebrated the coming of spring by doing a little retail therapy with my friends Amy & Lulu. It's been ages since I went and I couldn't wait to see all of the spring collections. It was the first time I dug out some of my spring wear - yay for warmer weather!

I went for a general cutesy look this time (and now that I think about it, I've done this quite a lot recently!) Gyaru kei is just so much easier and cheaper to do, and I'm quite surprised it's not getting as much attention as it should. Casual clothes + gyaru hair & makeup combo reminds me of what they did in EGG. How I miss that magazine!

Pastel Dreams & Inspirations

One thing I loved about this winter was that I stepped out of my comfort zone and wore pastel shades. I used to only wear dark shades for winter, but as the days are already dull it's nice to add a spot of colour.
I went to Finland recently with my love and boy it was cold! There's winter, and then there's Finnish winter. Luckily I packed lots of fluffy sweaters and thermals - I don't know how I would've survived otherwise! I'm hoping to do some more posts of my holiday in future but I might spread them out over the next couple of months.

This was one of my favourite outfits from my holiday, I felt like such an Easter bunny, so fluffy and cuddly! I was inspired by one of my outfits I put together in my One Outfit Five Ways post, but layered it up for the cold weather.

How to Survive the Gyaru Apocalypse

 You're in Shibuya 109; most of your gyaru friends have disappeared, and the shops are crumbling all around you. It seems like you're the only gyaru left - how are you going to make it out alive?

Truth is, you can't blame everyone for losing interest in the style. It all started when the magazines were toning down before disappearing and now many of the gyaru brands have closed down due to the lack of interest in the style. There are still some shops around, but quite a fair few of them have changed in order to appeal to their new audience. It seems like they have forgotten about gyaru, their original customers.

It's kind of depressing, but you can survive this gyaru apocalypse! And here's how...
