How to Style Denim Shorts for Gyaru (in 7 Ways!)

How to Style Denim Shorts for Gyaru (in 7 Ways!)

Posted on

Yaaaay I’m back with another “One Item Five Ways” post (although this has slowly progressed into a “how to style soandso” kind of posts)... I’ve been meaning to do this for quite some time but haven’t had the chance with us doing up the living room and the whole lockdown ...

My Fave Non-Gyaru Brands (That Look Totally Gal) + Offbrand Gyaru Tips!

My Fave Non-Gyaru Brands (That Look Totally Gal) + Offbrand Gyaru Tips!

I am a huge advocate for wearing offbrand items, especially over the past couple of years when my favourite gyaru brands like DaTuRa closed down or completely changed their look (MA*RS, I’m looking at you…). Here are some of my favourite non-gyaru brands that can totally pass as gyaru, as ...

Do Substyles Help or Hinder Us?

Do Substyles Help or Hinder Us?

Btw: This blog post contains affiliate links. Read my disclaimer for more info. See the pictures below? I didn't know it was gyaru, which sounds so incredibly silly, doesn't it? I've been gyaru for nearly 10 years - how can I not know if it was gyaru or not? It all ...

Today I tried… Kogal!

Today I tried… Kogal!

Hey cutie! Today I tried out Kogal - high-school Gyaru - for my TikTok video collaboration with my friend Kelsey. I had so much fun wearing it and it reminded me of when I first tried it all of those many years ago at MCM Comic Con. Luckily this set ...

Goals I'm Going to Smash in 2020

Goals I'm Going to Smash in 2020

2020 - bring it on. 2019 was rough but it made me a (hopefully) tougher person, and I’m ready to smash my goals and be more aligned with my dream self. I know it’s a cliche to say “new year, new me” but it’s a cliche for a damn good ...

Eat, Sleep, Shop, Repeat: Autumn/Winter UK Gyaru Meet!

Eat, Sleep, Shop, Repeat: Autumn/Winter UK Gyaru Meet!

A couple of weekends ago was our first gal meet since Gyaru Jubilee, this time based in Central London! It felt so long ago since I’ve seen everyone so when Saturday arrived I eagerly crawled out of my warm bed and into the cold drizzle outside. But that’s when things ...

Countryside Flower in the Cotswolds

Countryside Flower in the Cotswolds

Gosh, I love himekaji. I was actually thankful that it wasn't as sunny as it had been because then I was able to wear my new Liz Lisa jumpsuit for my birthday (which I actually bought secondhand - but still "new" in my eyes). I had no idea where my ...

Get the Look: Ane Agejo at Work

Get the Look: Ane Agejo at Work

The last time I did a 'Get the Look' post was back in 2012. Yep, 2012. That's a really long time ago (especially in the blogger world) and I remember just how encouraging it was to be able to mimic a gyaru brand outfit with items from the UK (or, ...

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 ...

How To Be A Gyaru & A Student

How To Be A Gyaru & A Student

This seems to be one of those most difficult questions that gaijin gals (gyaru) face; how can we still be gal if we go to school/college/uni/work? It is extremely high maintenance, and in some places it's not acceptable to be caked up in makeup. Life as a student is... Difficult. I've ...
