One Item Five Ways: Floral Denim Shirt

one item five ways, denim shirt outfit ideas

Summer is finally here in the U.K. Shocking, right? I can't actually remember the last time we had a proper summer so I'm making the most of the warm(er) weather. But everytime summer comes around I find myself itching to buy new clothes and I'm trying my very hardest not to splurge too much and to find ways to make do with what I already have. I'm also trying to find ways to do gyaru without buying brand because I can't bear the thought of shipping and custom fees... Luckily this year I'm achieving my goal of doing more gyaru-kei style (which is a surprise as I'm such a brand whore) and it's quite refreshing!

Today I'm featuring this floral detailed denim shirt from Primark. I've been wanting to buy a cute denim shirt for ages but couldn't seem to find one until I clapped eyes on this beauty. Sure it's cheap and probably won't last long, but it's good enough for now. Anyway, onto the one item five ways!

Round & Round like a Horse on a Carousel...

It's amazing how your clothes can affect your mental and physical state; as soon as I put on a cute dress I suddenly feel very positive and princess-y, and that's exactly how I felt when I put on my new Liz Lisa dress from Kawaii Gyaru Shop*. Gosh I can't tell you how in awe I am of it - I mean, look at that print! Let's all just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful it is.
All of my Liz Lisa is beautiful but this one has by far topped it. Sorry, my other Liz Lisa clothes, but it looks like I'm going to try and wear this as many times as I can. Luckily it's been getting so hot in the UK so hopefully that will happen! 

One of my best friend's, Amy, was having a birthday tea party and I just couldn't resist wearing this dress. I mean come on, a tea party, you can't get anymore princess-y than that. I kept my fingers crossed that it wouldn't rain and luckily it didn't, and I had such a great day. We drank tea, ate scones with jam and cream, and took lots of photos! I actually prefer these kind of gatherings to the partying type - I just get so exhausted with all that drinking that I'll only last an hour at a nightclub. Oops.

What's in my bag?

I have never actually done one of these posts before because a) my bags tend to be pretty messy and b) I'm such a chameleon so I rarely use the same bag for more than a week. I change bags depending on my outfit, and most of the time they're stashed in a corner somewhere with a pile of forgotten receipts (update: I have now tidied that corner and there are no more receipts, yay!).

I really wanted to do one this time especially because now I can finally bring out my prettier bags as the weather is warmer. I just love my My Melody bag* - I'm a huge fan of Sanrio and My Melody is one of my favourite characters alongside Hello Kitty and Little Twin Stars.

Koakuma Ageha: Agejo Buys & Outfits

agejo gyaru, shopping, MA*RS

Oops, I did it again... I bought more MA*RS.
I didn't mean for it to happen - I found myself yearning for their newer collections after finding peace with the fact that they're toning down, and before I knew it I bought a few pieces. I managed to sell a few of my old collections to justify buying new things, and I didn't feel bad for it. Their older collections just don't have the same effect on me like they used to, and I haven't been able to wear them because they're unsuitable for work.

I was good and didn't buy too much, but as soon as my items arrived I had to wear them right away. The weather has improved so much over here and it was finally time to wear pretty dresses! Aside from MA*RS I bought a DaTuRa top and several things from the Sanrio store, and I also bought a dress that's perfect for the kyabajo style but I had forgotten to take a picture of it! However I do have pics of me wearing it which you'll see after some pics of my buys.
