W♡C x Popteen Kei Co*De ☆

W♡C x Popteen Kei Co*De ☆

Posted on

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ I’m slowly trying to catch up on these blog posts I need to write and today I’m going to share my WC co*de! I wore this co*de like… Maybe, three weeks ago? Oops! ( 〃▽〃) I really really like Kumatan lately… It’s like my bby Reina said: he’s so ugly that you just can’t help but love him haha. It also reminds me of the outfits that Chie wears (one of my biggest inspos) and I feel like I’ve been moving away from the super cute himekaji style and more into Popteen kei which I talked about over here.

Mag Scans! Popteen Nov 2008

Okay so this is going to be a major pic-heavy post because AAAAH I RECEIVED MY POPTEEN MAGAZINE! This one features the amazing Tsubasa Masuwaka on the front, and it’s the November 2008 issue! I absolutely love this era of gyaru (because even though Popteen isn’t specifically a gyaru magazine, they did have a fair amount of issues featuring gyaru style). There’s lots of himekaji inspo as well, so I’ve scanned in my favourite pages for you!

Kind of weird but… I have been dressing up a lot more since lockdown happened. I guess it’s mainly because I’m just sitting around in the house with nothing better to do, and that the weather can’t really dictate what to wear because, erm, I’m not going outside. So I could pretty much wear whatever I wanted without limitations! Here are some of my favourite lockdown looks.

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 up still fits me but I sadly couldn’t find the sweater to go with it… Which makes me want to try it again and update this blog post!

Don’t worry Instagram – I still love you

Don’t worry Instagram – I still love you

It’s crazy how much Instagram has changed our lives and you know what? I’m not even mad. Yes, I do have my bad days where I’m comparing myself to others, but it’s also had such a positive impact on my life. I’ve never connected with more people from all corners of the internet than I have done on instagram and it’s the first place I look at when searching for beautiful places to go to. So don’t worry Instagram – I still love you. Here are more reasons why I love the ‘gram!

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 reason – because there’s nothing fresher than a fresh new year. And yes, I might be a *little* late in posting these seeing as we’re always halfway through January, but it’s still January so that counts, right? Anyway, here are my goals for 2020!

Clueless Inspired Outfit + Day Out in Bordeaux

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.

Gyaru Outfit Diaries: Malta, Baby!

Gyaru Outfit Diaries: Malta, Baby!

Helloooo sunny beaches, palm trees and crystal-clear waters. I’m not usually one for going on a summer holiday (I don’t cope well with mosquito bites and the blistering sun) but Malta was absolutely perfect. My friend Amy and I went in late May which was, I felt, the ideal time for exploring as it wasn’t crazy hot but was still sunny. This meant that I packed quite a few outfits as I knew I wanted to have at least two outfits per day, so here’s my Malta outfit diaries.

One Item Five Ways: Boohoo Tulle Maxi Skirt

One Item Five Ways: Boohoo Tulle Maxi Skirt

I’ve always been a fan of maxi skirts; when I was younger I used to have this long white one that I would wear whenever possible, but then my taste changed and I haven’t looked at a maxi skirt since. That is until I noticed them cropping up in Japanese fashion, and I was so tempted to get one right away but decided to wait patiently for it to appear in Western stores.

A few months down the line they arrived on the scene, and when I saw this white mesh skirt on Boohoo I knew I just had to get it, and BAM it was in my wardrobe. It’s amazing how versatile this skirt can be so it wasn’t that hard to come up with five different combinations for it, all of varying styles. You got your larme kei and your gyaru kei, both super easy to wear in your everyday life. It provides the perfect amount of layers for those cold days but it’s also light enough for Spring. I love it!

One Item Five Ways: Floral Denim Shirt

One Item Five Ways: Floral Denim Shirt

Summer is finally here in the U.K. Shocking, right? I can’t actually remember the last time we had a proper summer so I’m making the most of the warm(er) weather. But everytime summer comes around I find myself itching to buy new clothes and I’m trying my very hardest not to splurge too much and to find ways to make do with what I already have. I’m also trying to find ways to do gyaru without buying brand because I can’t bear the thought of shipping and custom fees… Luckily this year I’m achieving my goal of doing more gyaru-kei style (which is a surprise as I’m such a brand whore) and it’s quite refreshing!

Today I’m featuring this floral detailed denim shirt from Primark. I’ve been wanting to buy a cute denim shirt for ages but couldn’t seem to find one until I clapped eyes on this beauty. Sure it’s cheap and probably won’t last long, but it’s good enough for now. Anyway, onto the one item five ways!
