Get the Look: Ane Agejo at Work

The last time I did a 'Get the Look' post was back in 2012. Yep, 2012. That's a really long time ago (especially in the blogger world) and I remember just how encouraging it was to be able to mimic a gyaru brand outfit with items from the UK (or, ...

Gyaru False Lashes + Where to Buy Them

Gyaru False Lashes + Where to Buy Them

Aah, false lashes. What on earth would us gyaru do without them? I remember when I first started this Japanese fashion and I was trawling through Boots to find the cheapest lashes... But back then they were hard to find. Nowadays it's so easy to find 'normal' false lashes that ...

What Not to Say to Gyaru

What Not to Say to Gyaru

I would like to say that I have never experienced stupid comments in my gyaru life but that would be a huge lie. We are surrounded by some really ignorant people and it can get frustrating, and sometimes I can't help but let my polite facade slip and grimace. There ...

Where to Buy Jfashion Outside of Japan

Where to Buy Jfashion Outside of Japan

Buying Jfashion items outside of Japan was such a nightmare for me when I first started getting into gyaru. I remember longing for a beautiful Liz Lisa dress only to learn that I couldn't buy it directly from their website and that I needed some sort of shopping service, and ...
