What I Miss About Gyaru

What I Miss About Gyaru

Throwback to JEWEL's first gyaru meet! To say that gyaru has changed in the last few years is an understatement; nowadays it's totally unrecognisable, but hints of the old scene still lurks within the makeup. I've been watching this all happen and I used to get so riled up about how ...
