Hey cutie! How are you? Today I want to share with you some himekaji co*de ideas for winter. I’ve been losing the will to dress up now that we’re in our third lockdown and I can’t really go out anywhere, so I’ve been creating some cute flatlays to keep me occupied (and also to remind myself that I don’t really need to buy anymore clothes (ﾉ∀`)). You know that feeling when you look at your wardrobe and think, “oh I’ve got nothing to wear” when actually you bought a dress two months ago that you still haven’t worn haha. Anyway, I’ll stop rambling… let’s go!
Hey cutie, how are you? So I wanted to quickly write up this post before it’s too late lol because over the weekend I received some pictures from mine and Isobel’s mini photo shoot! I mentioned in a previous post how one of Isobel’s friends took some photos for us for Christmas. Unfortunately it was very dark so we didn’t take a lot… Hopefully next time we can take some more!
I woke up at 4.30am and couldn’t sleep so I decided to write this blog post instead! This is the first time I’m blogging on my phone… It feels strange but I’m really hoping it’ll make things a lot easier! I quickly want to share with you my blog day with my bestie Isobel. We used to do these once a month but it’s been impossible during lockdown. We are now out of lockdown but things aren’t really back to normal so we tried our best!
Hey cutie! How are you? Today I just want to say sorry for not being very active on here… I’ve just been really lacking motivation when it comes to blogging. I don’t really know what to write on here anymore, and I feel like maybe I’m annoying everyone with the amount I post (especially now that I’m creating more YouTube videos). Maybe I’ll just write small and casual posts like this and not promote it… And I told myself to do more “old-school blogging”, but it is quite hard to break out of the mindset of having to product ~perfect~ blog posts.
Hey cutie! How are you? Is it sad that I’m actually excited to share this post with you? Ever since my last post I have fully thrown myself into old-school himekaji so here are a few of my recent himekaji coords for Autumn (or Fall, if you’re from America)! By the way, most of these pictures were taken over the past month or so (before our second lockdown).
Hey cutie! How are you? This is just going to be a super quick post but I’ve been slowly collecting images of more casual coords for the everyday himekaji gal (as my goal for next year is to do it everyday!). These photos have been taken from old Liz Lisa collections as well as old blog posts and just what I had saved on my computer. I’m going to try and cover all seasons sometime in the future but for now, I’m just going to include what I’ve found in old Autumn/Fall and Winter collections.
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 me to take part! But by the time I wanted to do it, it was already August so I thought I’d wait a few more months to then do a 2019 outfit round-up. So here are a my favourite gyaru coords of 2019!
I don’t know about you, but I find it really hard to do gyaru in winter… It really is more of a summery style, and the community dwindles in the winter months (especially in the UK when it’s too miserable to venture outside). But doing gyaru in the winter is not impossible! Here are some tips and tricks so that you can look both stylish AND warm.
Please note: I don’t own any of the following pictures, and took them mostly from tumblr/pinterest/the hidden corners of my computer.
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.
Acid-washed jeans are the best things to jazz up a simple outfit; every time I feel like I’m in a slump I just slip on a pair of these babies and it instantly improves my mood. I haven’t been wearing it lately because it’s been unusually hot in the U.K. (the horror) but I just can’t wait for it to get a little cooler so that I can whack them on!
So while I patiently wait for that day to come I have decided that it was time to do another one of my “One Item Five Ways” posts. I really look forward to doing these, and I guess I could class them as a series now! If there’s anything you would like to see me experiment with then please let me know in the comments below.
