Reasons Why You Don't Need Gyaru Brands to be Gal

Reasons Why You Don't Need Gyaru Brands to be Gal

I used to be a massive gyaru brand-whore. I bought my first item (a pink and white MA*RS dress) about a couple of years after I got into gyaru and that was the beginning of my obsession. I just loved the fact that I had certain labels hanging in my ...

One Item Five Ways: Checkered Dress

One Item Five Ways: Checkered Dress

I have to admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of checkered dresses. For some reason I thought that they were only reserved for school uniforms but you know that saying that "it'll feel so right when you've found The One"? Well, I found mine hanging on a clothes rail in ...

Goals I'm Going to Smash in 2020

Goals I'm Going to Smash in 2020

2020 - bring it on. 2019 was rough but it made me a (hopefully) tougher person, and I’m ready to smash my goals and be more aligned with my dream self. I know it’s a cliche to say “new year, new me” but it’s a cliche for a damn good ...

Japanese Fashion Styles I'd Love to Try Out

Japanese Fashion Styles I'd Love to Try Out

It seems like a lifetime ago when I first found out about Japanese fashion and just how broad it is; from the elegant Lolita fashion, the cute and colour Fairy Kei, to the wild and sexy Gyaru. Despite this, though, I’ve only really done gyaru fashion (having called myself a ...

Gyaru Outfit Diaries: A Winter Holiday in Germany

Gyaru Outfit Diaries: A Winter Holiday in Germany

I never stressed so much as I did in the weeks prior to going on holiday to Bavaria, Germany. “How do I even create a cute winter outfit? Am I going to be warm enough?? What if I forgot something???” were frequent questions floating around my head. Luckily I had ...

My Favourite Gyaru Coords of 2019

My Favourite Gyaru Coords of 2019

There was a theme floating around in the Lolita community (another Japanese fashion that doesn't have any relation to *that* book) where they would post a few of their favourite outfits from the first half of 2019, and my friend Reila wanted to give it a gyaru twist and tagged ...

Witch Way to the Pumpkins?

Witch Way to the Pumpkins?

YAY, HALLOWEEN! 'tis the season to be spooky and I was so happy to wear my Halloween witch costume to my trip to the pumpkin patch (that I bought way back in August). I bounded down the aisles between the heaps of pumpkins of various shapes and sizes, getting the ...

5 Ways to Style a Black Hat for Autumn/Fall

What's up, witches?! Tehe yes, this One Item Five Ways post (or "how to style soandso in five ways"... However you wanna' call it) is going to be a little bit different this time because instead of featuring a clothing item, I'll be featuring this witchy-looking black hat - perfect ...

You’re in Love With the Old Me

You’re in Love With the Old Me

I was at the height of my gyaru days in 2014; I finally discovered the style that suited me, agejo (which is one of the more sexier substyles) and I wore it nearly every day. I even rocked up to university in it, and got plenty of raised eyebrows from ...

Cinnamoroll-ing Down the Hill

Cinnamoroll-ing Down the Hill

I’ll tell you a secret… I wasn’t always a Hello Kitty Fan *gaspshockhorror*. I went through a phase where I was pretty tired of it because of just how popular Hello Kitty was and I wanted to be "original" (ew) and so I turned my attention to another super cute ...
