Rokku wardrobe ★☆

Hey cutie! How are you? ♡ Today I went through my wardrobe to find the items that would fit into rokku. In the past I would wear rokku for the whole of October (or spooky clothes in general) but over the last year or two I’ve lost interest… This year, however, I’m going to do it again! I won’t be wearing makeup every day but I do aim to wear spooky clothing tehe. I’m so excited! To make things easier I decided to write this rokku wardrobe post. Okay, let’s go!

You’re in Love With the Old Me

I was at the height of my gyaru days in 2014; I finally discovered the style that suited me, agejo (which is one of the more sexier substyles) and I wore it nearly every day. I even rocked up to university in it, and got plenty of raised eyebrows from my colleagues and professors. It became my signature style and I wore it for a few years after that until I started working and had to tone it down. I then began to wear other styles like onee, rokku and himekaji that I felt more comfortable in, and rarely picked my MA*RS items out of my wardrobe.

But even now I’ve had messages from people saying that they loved my agejo style, and I cannot help but feel a hint of sadness… Because they’re in love with the older version of myself. What does that mean for my present self? Is the Lizzie right now not good enough?

Just duck and carry on

 

The past year has taught me that no matter what sh*t life throws at you, just duck and then carry on.

I’ve been through a pretty rough time and I’m still recovering, but everyday I feel a little bit better. I’ve learnt that I’ve got to live each day to the max – with the occasional lazy day – and spend as much time as I can with the ones I love. Who knows what might happen tomorrow.

I guess that’s why I’ve been working my ass off this past year to get those grades that I want, because I really want to be successful career-wise. Whenever I wasn’t doing any uni work I was chatting to my friends online or visiting my family and spending time with my boyfriend, and recently I have been able to meet my friends like Charli (the loveliest girly in the world <3) more often so life is definitely getting better! Hopefully I can meet up more people over the summer now that uni is nearly over.

So what is the meaning of this post? I don’t know, I just wanted to ramble like a wise woman ahahaha. But I guess this is a message to all of my readers that never walk away from the people you love, and if you have a goal then work your ass off and get there! And if you’re going through a rough time; life will get better

That aside, here are some pictures of my recent look. I haven’t dolled up recently because I still have problems with my eye – I really need to get it checked out – so it was a nice breather! 

 

 

I realised that after I had done my makeup I was running out of time because I wanted to watch Criminal Minds *cough* so had to stick with straight hair!

Upper lashes; Jewerich no.2  Lower lashes: KKCenterhk
Top: Boohoo.com ; Jeans: New Look (ripped up by me)
Boots: New Look ; Necklace: eBay

I’ve also set myself a goal which is to no longer buy brand clothing (I wonder how long this will last). I realised that I should be saving money instead of splurging because I’ve been driving a lot more, and petrol costs a bomb. I do still want to treat myself every once in a while so I might stick with building up on my accessories collection as I seem to always wear the same things.

So as a treat for completing my uni work a week before the deadline, I bought some Ben & Jerrys!

To end this post; so what are my goals in life? I have already mentioned how I want to be a successful designer, but I think I would also love to grow as a gaijin gyaru and perhaps meet more people in the community as there are so many nice people out there! I also want to start immersing myself into the design community, get more feedback, make some friends, and just keep growing! I’m going to start building up my portfolio over the summer whenever I get the chance to as I think I’ve found something I really like to do.

Anyway, adios amigos, until next time! Now allow me to go and gorge myself on some delicious ice cream.

 

 

Sponsored Review: Hime Castle

After many months of debate I have finally decided that I’m going to post once a week, every Sunday! So now y’all have a day to look forward to reading my blog ;D


Please note that although this is a sponsored post, all of my thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. 

Moving on, this post is sponsored by Hime Castle! They had emailed me asking if I was interested in a sponsorship, and I – of course – accepted. I had been eyeing their shop for quite a while and was really intrigued on their services and products!

I was quite surprised when I received their package, as I didn’t know what they were going to send me! Was it going to be clothing, cosmetics, a wig… I was so excited but I took care when opening it.

Packaging ★★★★★

The item came in a sort of bag which (in my personal opinion) is a lot better as they fit much better in my letterbox. There was a cute little card alongside the item as well.

I just love how elegant the type is!

AND IT WAS A CUTE DRESS!

I didn’t put it on until much later because I wanted to prepare my coord to make it look as pretty as possible. My initial thought to when I wore it was WHAT IS THAT COLDNESS ON MY BACK OMAGAAAAH IT’S SO COLD but then I realised it was actually the chain. Whoops. I made sure not to move that much until the chain got “warmer” and afterwards it was fine.

Design ★★★★

I love love love it! It’s so pretty and sparkly, but the only thing I would say is that the sleeves were a bit short as they past my wrists a little bit. Other than that the sizing was fine.

The chain was actually a pretty awesome addition to the design because it gave it a bit more oomph. I haven’t really seen any clothes with this sort of attachment to the back so it was pretty new to me!

Now let’s take a lookie at the detailing on the front.

I really like how sparkly it is as it really does reflect the whole disco thing. The size of the type is pretty in your face as well so that the dress doesn’t look too plain! I absolutely love it. The English is pretty good too ;D Was expecting some type errors or Engrish lol.

Overall ★★★★★

I really liked this top! Hime Castle were ever so cute on the communication part, so I would recommend them. 

One last photo of me! Sorry for the bad lighting and un-styled hair

If you would like to purchase any of their fabulous products – they do wigs, stuff from Yumentebo, MA*RS and other pretty things! – then please visit their website here
