Koakuma Ageha: Agejo Buys & Outfits

Koakuma Ageha: Agejo Buys & Outfits

agejo gyaru, shopping, MA*RS

Oops, I did it again… I bought more MA*RS.

I didn’t mean for it to happen – I found myself yearning for their newer collections after finding peace with the fact that they’re toning down, and before I knew it I bought a few pieces. I managed to sell a few of my old collections to justify buying new things, and I didn’t feel bad for it. Their older collections just don’t have the same effect on me like they used to, and I haven’t been able to wear them because they’re unsuitable for work.

I was good and didn’t buy too much, but as soon as my items arrived I had to wear them right away. The weather has improved so much over here and it was finally time to wear pretty dresses! Aside from MA*RS I bought a DaTuRa top and several things from the Sanrio store, and I also bought a dress that’s perfect for the kyabajo style but I had forgotten to take a picture of it! However I do have pics of me wearing it which you’ll see after some pics of my buys.

It felt so good to be wearing agejo again. Lately I’ve been feeling really bad because my blog name is “Lizzie Bee // Everyday Agejo Gyaru” and I haven’t been wearing agejo a lot lately. I didn’t deserve to have that title, and I was so close to deleting it off my blog when I realised that I just needed to give myself time to adapt. I am a real life butterfly – I just need time to adapt with whatever direction I’m going on and slowly build up a new wardrobe. I don’t think I’m alone in saying that 99% of the time I’m in a style crisis (well, I hope not anyway!)

Until next Sunday ♡

Himekaji in Oxford

Himekaji in Oxford

The other weekend I took a trip to the beautiful town of Oxford to meet up with my friend Lee, and we couldn’t have picked a better day for it. It was the hottest day we’ve had all year and it was so sunny! I loved it. I felt like I could just close my eyes and enjoy the delicate sunshine on my shoulders and ended up having a really blissful day. We were two himekaji (casual princesses) strolling through the little lanes, spotting lots of pretty buildings, and relaxing in Christ Church meadow… But the sunshine didn’t last (typical of British weather) and it started pouring it down with rain, so we sought shelter in a hotel restaurant to have some cream tea before heading to Lee’s house for film-and-face-mask time. Ever After which is now my favourite Cinderella adaptation!

Oxford city centre – I love spotting old Tudor buildings!

So I found myself decked out in himekaji – don’t you find that you have a summer gyaru style and a winter one? I’m usually dressed in agejo throughout autumn and winter but as soon as the spring flowers bloom I’m in himekaji. I guess that’s why my wardrobe is super crazy; I just can’t decide which part I like the most? Do you ever get like that or is it just me?

Nevertheless I’m trying to find a nice compromise between himekaji and agejo but it isn’t easy as they’re two completely different styles, and I have been thinking about my “Baby Steps to Hime Gyaru” post but I don’t think I’ll do that after all. We’ll see how it goes! I hope I’m not the only person suffering from two separate wardrobe personalities haha.

 

Anyway, that’s all for today! I really can’t wait to spend another day in Oxford in himekaji again. I guess this means I should start buying more tehe!

Until next Sunday, cuties ♡

Day Out with Amy & Lulu!

Day Out with Amy & Lulu!

gaijin gyaru, roxie sweetheart, unicorn

I’m so happy that spring is finally here – I haven’t felt so energetic in ages! It’s weird how much a little bit of sunlight could affect my everyday life. Only downside is that my hayfever is slowly creeping forwards, and my eyes have been super itchy for the past week.

I’ve got so many plans for this spring and I can’t wait to get them done and dusted! I celebrated the coming of spring by doing a little retail therapy with my friends Amy & Lulu. It’s been ages since I went and I couldn’t wait to see all of the spring collections. It was the first time I dug out some of my spring wear – yay for warmer weather!

Pastel Dreams & Inspirations

Pastel Dreams & Inspirations

One thing I loved about this winter was that I stepped out of my comfort zone and wore pastel shades. I used to only wear dark shades for winter, but as the days are already dull it’s nice to add a spot of colour.
I went to Finland recently with my love and boy it was cold! There’s winter, and then there’s Finnish winter. Luckily I packed lots of fluffy sweaters and thermals – I don’t know how I would’ve survived otherwise! I’m hoping to do some more posts of my holiday in future but I might spread them out over the next couple of months.

This was one of my favourite outfits from my holiday, I felt like such an Easter bunny, so fluffy and cuddly! I was inspired by one of my outfits I put together in my One Outfit Five Ways post, but layered it up for the cold weather.

I’m quite sad that I won’t be able to wear fluffy sweaters anymore now that it’s getting warmer here in the UK, but I’m really keen on adding some more pastels to my spring & summer wardrobe! It’ll also allow me to try out different colours for makeup, taking inspiration from Fairy Kei. Fairy Kei and Gyaru is actually a really cute mix. Although I won’t go Fairy Kei all the way I just love the way they put their outfits together, so I took a trip to Tumblr and put together a small moodboard:

A perfect example of a gyaru doing this mix is Emika Kanda. She looks adorable!

I just can’t wait to try this out! It looks so fun and it’ll be nice to bring a bit more colour into my wardrobe and general makeup. I’ve been sticking to a lot of brown and black shades for my eyeshadow, so it’ll be nice to experiment with blues and pinks.

What styles do you like to mix with gyaru? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next Sunday! ♡

Recent Gyaru Outfits: Jan – Feb

Recent Gyaru Outfits: Jan – Feb

himekaji gyaru, lizzie bee

I’ve been aiming to do gyaru at least once a week ever since I entered the “real world”. So far so good – it makes me really look forward to my “dolling-up” days and I feel more motivated to do things when I make an effort to look good. How weird is that?

But my gyaru looks have really toned down as I haven’t attended any meets and all I have been doing lately is shopping, eating or just hanging out with my friends so I’ve never really had a reason to go all-out. I had promised myself never to tone down, but now I’ve come to terms with it and accepted it for what it is. That’s life I suppose.

Here are a few outfits I’ve done during January and February. My gyaru self is evolving as I started not giving a crap about fitting into a substyle and just doing what I want to do. My main focus is to wear whatever I want but then do gyaru makeup & hair. I think it’s better for me that way.

Oh My Sweet Days

I’m not really one for slouchy sweaters but I can’t get enough of this sweater. It’s not really the warmest thing in the world so I saved it for the warmest winter day before I could wear it. What I loved most about it were the little white bows – they looked so cute! I really liked my makeup that day even though I did what I usually did, but it somehow looks different? I don’t know, the mysteries of makeup.

Little Lamb

It’s still freezing here in the UK but because it’s been feeling more like Spring I wanted to wear something with Spring elements, and settled for lighter colours. I love this hoodie because it’s just so cosy, I felt like a little lamb!

Unicorn Princess

This was the first time I tried mixing up pastels, and oh my gosh I loved it! I never felt so magical and it was only emphasised with my unicorn necklace from Roxie Sweetheart. I can’t wait to wear pastels again – especially pinks and purples!

I had such a bad hair day and couldn’t for the life of me decide what to do with my hair but in the end I just went with soft curls. One day I’ll wear this outfit again but with bigger hair and heavier makeup. I need to experiment with pastel shades for my makeup!

That’s all for today! I have actually dressed up more than what this post is showing but it’s been dotted around my other posts such as my outfits for my Kawaii Gyaru Shop review (which will be up next week!). So I have been dressing up, promise! ;D

Until next Sunday!

Wear What You Love

Wear What You Love

gyaru styles, gaijin gyaru, lizzie bee

Ever get that feeling where you don’t really fit into a particular style? I’ve been feeling this for so long that it’s become normal for me. I have tried sticking to one style, but the more I told myself to do that, the more I rebelled against it until it got to a point where I was a chaotic mess. I just couldn’t make my mind up! I kept creating posts saying, “from now on I’m going to do X style!” But then I changed drastically almost as soon as I posted it. It was so annoying!

So now I’ve come to terms with what I truly am – a style chameleon. I’ve always known I was one but I didn’t really want to face it… Accepting this made me feel so much better! Don’t get me wrong, I do envy gyaru who strongly stick to one style and rock it, but that didn’t work out for me. Agejo was the only style that lasted more than a few days (it actually turned into a few years) and I’m still going strong with it but I tend to dabble with other styles every now and then.

I’ve been in a rut in terms of Christmas spirit; I don’t know why, but I just don’t feel the cheer this year. I used to love Christmas but now I find myself enjoying Halloween more… It got to the point where I was so fed up with how I was feeling that I forced myself to dress up and go Christmas tree hunting. I haven’t actually bought a Christmas tree before (apart from my mini one which I got for £1 from Poundland) so I was totally unprepared. I ended up red-faced with stress but I managed to get one in the end. The final result was a beautiful pink and white tree, topped with some Hello Kitty baubles that I got as an early Christmas present from my boyfriend’s mum.

Setting up the tree jump-started my Christmas mood, and soon I was singing along to “Fairytale of New York” which really helped me get motivated to dress up for my first Christmas meal of the year! This is where I realised that I hadn’t actually bought a Christmas jumper, whoops. I made do by wearing fluffy things and my pompom hairbands

Fast-forward to a week later, I was getting more into the Christmas mood but I still had no jumper ^^” But I didn’t care, I wanted to dress up! Kawaii Gyaru Shop kindly sent me these adorable Santa-cat tights and I just had to wear them. They’re so so cute! I love them!

Oh and yes I got my hair cut! I wasn’t too sure whether to have it cut but I got fed up of it being trapped in car doors. I’m still not used to it… It’s so short ;_; But I love my fringe! What do you think? ^///////^

That’s all for today folks! I hope you’ve been feeling more Christmas-y than I have…

Birthday Weekend 2015!
June-July: Recent Gyaru Coords!

Recent Gyaru Coords

Does anyone else here suffer from hayfever? I’m asking because I’m praying that I’m not the only one currently with tissue stuck up in their nostrils to stop it from overflowing (disgusting, I know). It’s gotten so bad this year, and it’s the main culprit of my messed up eye. But you’ll be happy to hear that my eye has finally healed! Yay!

I’ve taken a few pictures of my gyaru coords and makeup over the past few weeks but I didn’t take enough to make a blog post about each one, so I’m putting them all together in this post!
