Today I tried… Decora! ☆

hello decome

Hey cutie ♡ 你好小可爱! How are you? I’ve been wanting to publish this post for AGES and now I finally can!!!! Basically my friend Kristina (aka cybr.grl) and I did a lil’ style swap which we then filmed for our YouTube channels. It was really refreshing for me because I don’t really venture outside of gyaru, but the style I tried out was… DECORA!

If you’re unfamiliar with what Decora is, it is another super cute jfashion style that started in the late 90s (similar to gyaru!) and is well-known for the vast amount of accessories they were, as well as their bright clothing. Unlike gyaru, Decora first began in the streets of Harajuku (where gyaru reigned the streets of Shibuya). There isn’t a limit to how many accessories they wear! Here are some pictures to give you a better idea of what Decora is.

Cinnamoroll-ing Down the Hill

I’ll tell you a secret… I wasn’t always a Hello Kitty Fan *gaspshockhorror*. I went through a phase where I was pretty tired of it because of just how popular Hello Kitty was and I wanted to be “original” (ew) and so I turned my attention to another super cute character – Cinnamoroll. I was still in Sixth Form/college (so high school, for my American readers!) when I fell in love with this lil’ puppy, and so wearing this Cinnamoroll inspired outfit really brought back sweet memories!

Agejo in My Heart

I picked up the MA*RS set that had been sitting on my “to sell” pile for months and sighed. I’ve been thinking about selling this heart-print set for a while now but for some reason I couldn’t seem to let it go. The agejo style slowly diminished in my wardrobe ever since I adopted ane agejo, a more toned-down version, and so I sold most of my older prints. This one was one of the very few pieces I had left that belonged to the old school agejo style and some part of me sighed in relief when I slowly put it back into my wardrobe.

1 Item 5 Ways: Pink Crop Top

Isn’t this just one of the most exciting times of the year? Winter is over (although some days it doesn’t feel like it) and everyone’s looking forward to the promise of spring and sunny days. I have a huge love for this time of year so for this ‘One Item Five Ways‘ post, I’m focusing on this super cute and fluffy pink crop top that I bought from Missguided (similar here). These outfits would be perfect for spring, especially if you want to go down more of a sweeter route!
