Thoughts about gyaru…

Posted on

So there have been discussions lately about gyaru and the community and so I wanted to quickly just write some thoughts about it…

When I discovered gyaru I immediately fell in love; I loved everything about the way they looked and I wanted to look like them.

Which is why I don’t understand it when people approach gyaru but then say how they don’t want to do the makeup or the clothes and don’t want to style their hair…

And I’m like…

What is it about gyaru that you liked, then?

Some say that they just like the lifestyle part but in my opinion there isn’t really a strong lifestyle per say. People say how they like how confident and rebellious gals are but anyone can be rebellious and confident.

And sure gyaru like taking purikura and do parapara but doing those things don’t automatically make you gal.

For example – does me liking afternoon tea automatically make me Lolita?

And when it comes to substyles (and I think I wrote about this in an old post) but jp gals don’t really care about them. I feel like substyles are something us western gals care too much about.

So there’s no need to really create new substyles… Plus there are just so many ways to wear gal anyway?

And I feel like it’s not really up to us, as westerners, to be creating those substyles.

There are certain things that make you gal and if you want to change it all… Then what part of gal did you actually like in the end?

Those are just my thoughts on the matter.

Autumn walk + retro girly co*de

Hey cutie! How are you? Today we went out on a lil’ “day trip” (I say “day trip” because we were only really out for a few hours hahaha but it felt like a long time). The weather has been loooooovely~ it really feels like Autumn!

We decided to go somewhere that wasn’t tooooo far away, esp because this was our first time! It was such a beautiful place

LuluBee date ♡ Liz Lisa co*de

Hey cutie! How are you? ヾ(*’▽’*) this week has been challenging; my baby is going through a growth spurt so has been constantly eating and not sleeping enough (╥_╥)… 

Other than that, I went out for dinner with my bby Lauren for her belated birthday present! It was the first time I went somewhere without the baby… It felt very strange 〣( ºΔº )〣

Belated birthday meal + hime co*de

Hey cutie! How are you? It was finally my belated birthday meal yesterday and aaaah I had such a lovely time! Looking back at the photos and just reminiscing just makes me smile so so much

But… Things didn’t go quite to plan with my co*de I was originally going to wear my JD dress but it was way too hot (thanks, heatwave!) so I wore another pink one instead. It’s a shame that my curls died from the humidity but oh well, I still felt pretty!
