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!
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?
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.
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.

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

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.
I’m still not sure where I’m heading style-wise, and when a friend asked which style I would like to go for I replied: “I’m a bit of a chameleon when it comes to gyaru; I tend to like and wear all styles.”
And it’s true; I really do like all of the substyles of gyaru that I just can’t stick to one! It’s a bit annoying though because then I’m spending loads of money on different kind of clothes rather than saving up and buying only those that fit the substyle that I’m in. Guess I can’t really help it.
But I need to stop buying clothes! It’s crazy how much I lurk on gyaru sales to find items that I want to get my hands on even though I really shouldn’t be spending. To help myself out a little bit I went along and gathered all of the clothes that I thought were gyaru-suitable and have taken pictures to show y’all
my gyaru wardrobe!
Although most of these are brand items, I have thrown in some non-brand stuff like clothes from New Look, Miss Selfridge etc. Unfortunately I have missed quite a lot of clothes so I think that I shall do another post!
This has kept me motivated in staying gyaru and just trudge on, even through the rough patch that I’m going through.
See ya’ next time I guess!
P.S Thank you to all of those lovely people who filled out my poll! It’s really nice to see what you guys want to see on my blog. There’s still three days left to vote! 😀
