Clueless Inspired Outfit + Day Out in Bordeaux

As soon as I stepped out into the sunshine and onto the cobble-stone streets, surrounded by beautiful French architecture, I knew I made the right choice to wear my Clueless inspired outfit (with a gyaru twist, of course!). I’ve got to hand it to my friend Nini who actually persuaded me to wear it, and who also styled my hair in two cute little buns resting on either side of my head. I haven’t felt this cute in so long and was excited to be roaming the winding streets and tasting Bordeaux wine.

Kawaii Clueless inspired outfit by hellolizziebee

dress: new look / trainers: new look / socks: primark / bag: primark / top: eBay

Our adventure started at the Place de la Bourse (aka my dream home) before we meandered our way to the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux where we met our other friend, Celine! They knew exactly the kind of things I was interested in – beautiful buildings, castles, and delicious food – and picked the most perfect route for me. I was so happy and grateful! We ticked off visiting the Puerta de Cailhau, the Grosse Cloche, Saint Louis des Chartrons, Place des Quinconces, speaking in ‘franglais’ all the way.

So, about the dress. I picked it out of the kids’ section in New Look and fell in love right away. Hellooooo Cher Horowitz vibes! I knew I had to do a Clueless inspired outfit and I’ve been really inspired by a lot of gyaru-kei and old school gyaru looks (thanks to EGG magazine) so I went for something colourful underneath – and what better than pink? We were going to do a lot of walking that day so I slipped on my comfy trainers and paired them with some frilly socks (we actually managed to do an impressive 16,000+ steps that day!)

And that’s it for today!

What do you think about these ‘themed’ gyaru looks? I really want to do more in future, especially of my favourite films… Maybe I should do a Mean Girls one next, what do you think?

Love,
Lizzie xx

    I loveee your Clueless inspired outfit! I think that first photo is one of my favourite blogger photos I’ve seen in ages! My boyfriend went to Bordeaux for work a couple of years ago and he said it was really nice x

    I find that themed outfits both help me and hinder me when I’m picking out an outfit haha
    It’s easy to figure out the clothes, but then I want to be as cute as possible and so I get stuck at the 85% done mark ?

    This outfit was so so cute! And I’m sure you know I love your hair arrangement, since anything that resembles bear ears is right up my alley ??

    I’m glad you had a wonderful time with your friends, and if you did a mean girls inspired look, I can’t say I’d be mad!

      Aah yes I know what you mean! But I guess at the end of the day we should do our own take on it to make it more unique!
      Thank you so much Reina (Reinakkuma!), I absolutely love this hairstyle too and can definitely see myself doing it all summer.
      Tehe thanks sweetie!

    Yesssssss! I’m feeling all the Clueless vibes! You nailed this look! And that first photo is so much LOVE. I never knew what place I’ve seen those umbrellas before. So thank you for clearing that up xD

    And I love themed looks! When I am just able to go out in Gal and not have to work, I try to do it too!

    • hellolizziebee

      Tehe you’re very welcome! I wanna go to all of the places that has umbrellas and make a collage with them all! If only we had them in the UK…

      Yes me too! I wanna do more themed looks in future as it was so much fun!

    *Squeals* You’re super cute with your hair like that! My face tends to remind me of a muffin when I try it. ^^; (I also want those earrings every time I come across a picture where you’re wearing them. They’re so cuuute!)

    I love theme outfits, it’d be awesome if you did more. ? Your Ravenclaw one from a while back was awesome. If you do Mean Girls, who would you draw inspo from? (Can I vote for Janis? ^^; )

      Aaaaah thank you so so much Ashley! You’re so cute tehe. Unfortunately I don’t know where these earrings are from as they are very old ;_;
      I’m so happy you remembered my Ravenclaw outfit! I really want to post it on here as I don’t think I’ve posted it on my blog yet…. But yes I will definitely do a Mean Girls one!

      Ah it’s so cool to meet someone who is familiar with gyaru, especially as it’s not that popular nowadays! I’m so glad that this has inspired you. Can’t wait to see what you do with animal print!
