Am I Too Old For Gyaru & Jfashion?

carefree gaijin gyaru

The other day it suddenly hit me that I was going to turn 30 in a few years. 30. To me, my thirties would mean settling down in my own home, having a stable job and scariest of all... Children. I am not emotionally nor financially stable for any of that yet, and can't even look after myself properly let another a mini version of myself. It's absolutely terrifying, especially when it means that I would probably be too old for gyaru.

Be too old for gyaru. I never thought I'd say that, especially because a few years ago I wrote a post on all of the things you can still be/do with gyaru. One of them was that you can still be gyaru when you're older, but at the moment I am a bit lost with how I feel about that. I think it's hard to feel in the "gyaru mood" when it's not as easy to get Japanese clothes over here in the West than it would be in, well, Japan.

Driving Down Memory Lane: My Favourite Gyaru Outfits of All Time

favourite gyaru outfits of all time, gyaru outfit, agejo, lizzie bee, jfashion

I never thought I would feel it, but I feel old - I can't keep up with the cool kids anymore and it's like I'm going through my gyaru granny stage. I wrote in a previous post that I feel like I'm becoming super boring and that I didn't know what my personal style is anymore. This feeling then pushed me to look back at my old posts and I spent a couple of hours just picking out my favourite outfits. It sparked so many memories - like the time I was on the Hyper Japan catwalk for the very first time, when I did an elegant but rocky look, and when I first started getting into agejo. I have so many good memories of gyaru that I can't let it go.

So I picked out a few of my favourite outfits and have showcased them below to remind myself that even though I might feel boring, I had a pretty damn good evolution. I've grown so much and even though right now I don't see it, I know that I am more comfortable than I ever was. I'm so much happier.

The Art of Letting Go

the art of letting go, personal, lifestyle blogger

Letting go is hard, especially when it comes to the things you love. I still keep all of my old toys from when I was younger because I can't bear to shove them up into the attic or sell them to another person. I tell myself that my favourite ice-cream flavour is still mint and chocolate chip but in reality I do love a good old vanilla ice-cream.

Some things are harder to let go of that old toys, and what makes it worse is the belief that all things are everlasting. When you feel something changing you do the stupid thing of trying to fix things when they can't really be fixed and even if you are able to keep that friend/hobby/favourite ice-cream flavour, it's just not the same anymore.
