My New Obsession: Swankiss

Hey cuties! How are you today?

Last week was a little hint that I am slowly experimenting with my style… I am getting a bit bored of doing agejo so I think it’s time to try something new! I always get really excited when I try out a different part of Japanese fashion tehe~ And the shop staff at Swankiss have been a massive inspiration lately. I just wish I had the clothes for it but I’ve told myself not to buy anymore brand because I can’t really justify it.

I was a bit disappointed with Swankiss’ collection (as said here) but I just love the way the shop staff put everything together! Here are a few of my favourites:

Not actually too sure if the top right one is from Swankiss…

Aren’t they so adorable? I also really like how they do their makeup, especially the blush! I actually tried out their techniques in my last blog post, and I’ve been doing it a lot more ever since. Here are some of my biggest Swankiss staff inspirations!

Larme Kei

I’ve noticed that when people have mentioned Swankiss in the past they associate it with Larme Kei, so I did a little bit of research on it. Universal Doll actually did a really good post which introduces the style, so I’ll just redirect you to that rather than just writing what she said 😀 

From what I’ve read Larme Kei is a pretty natural-looking style focusing on the “sweet factor”, so I guess Swankiss is tied in to that but then the shop staff adds a hint of gyaru to it with the makeup. I think I actually prefer how Swankiss do it because although Larme Kei is great for everyday wear, it’s lacking everything that I love in gyaru.

What Next?

Sooooo taking everything into account; I would love to try out the makeup they do at Swankiss and combine it with gyaru, and try out wearing more pastels. This is actually really difficult for me because I don’t have many pastels – especially shoes – but I rummaged around my wardrobe and took a picture of what I’ve got.

Things I need to do/get:
Pompon hair ties
Cute tights – preferably in white
White/Pink Platforms
Lots of cute accessories!
Dark pink lippy
White satchel/backpack

I really, really want to try out this style so badly but it’s really difficult without the accessories! I have so many ideas for outfits, but there’s always something that I don’t have to complete it. I’ve had a look on eBay for the past couple of weeks for things like cute patterned tights but the shipping would take too long ><” It’s so annoying!

Oh well, wish my luck! I hope you all have a lovely rest of the weekend & I’ll see you next week!
