Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ Soooo if you’ve been reading my blog since the beginning, you might recognise this sort of “topic” but for those who don’t – I used to check out my favourite brands and pick pieces that I really like. I haven’t done this since, maybe, 2016, and as the gyaru landscape has changed so much since then I thought that I’d go back to doing these kind of posts again.
However, sadly, gyaru brands don’t really exist anymore aside from Jesus Diamante… So I’m just going to be picking whatever brands I like, whether they’re Japanese or Western brands.
Okie, let’s take a look, shall we?
So obvi I’m going to include JD seeing as I’m in the middle of a hime gyaru boom but OH BOY those prices. I always wanted to buy brand new Jesus Diamante but that’s definitely not going to happen. Nevertheless, it was nice to have a look at what they had.
Disclaimer: Liz Lisa used to be a gyaru brand, but now it’s more “kawaii fashion”.
You know what? I absolutely love Liz Lisa’s recent releases. Everything is just suuuuper cute and perfect for ryousangata/jirai styles. My favourite items are definitely their jumpers – they have such lovely bow details!!! I neeeeed one (or perhaps a few). I also love the hair ribbons and the cute lil’ earrings.
Disclaimer: Also used to be a gyaru brand but it’s now just kawaii
RIBBONS, RIBBONS EVERYWHERE okay I have decided that I definitely need to get some ribbon hair accessories of some sort. Also, how lovely is that black top with the three bows on it? I feel like it’ll work so well with hime gyaru! I also looooove the long jumper dress with the cat on it…
Woohoo, first Western brand coming right up! I obviously had to include that cat sweater ever since I saw the jumper dress from Ank Rouge, but I do wish it was a little bit longer… Other than that, I didn’t really find much.
MA*RS + Princess Melody
Again, used to be gyaru brands, now they’re not
I’ve decided to put MA*RS and Princess Melody together because to be honest… It’s quite hard to figure out which one is which as they look pretty much the same haha. But again, I love all of the bows and the lace details! And omg I can’t tell you how much I NEED that bear knit in my life.
And that’s all for today! What items caught your eye recently?
