Hey cutie! How are you? Today I want to share with you some himekaji co*de ideas for winter. I’ve been losing the will to dress up now that we’re in our third lockdown and I can’t really go out anywhere, so I’ve been creating some cute flatlays to keep me occupied (and also to remind myself that I don’t really need to buy anymore clothes (ﾉ∀`)). You know that feeling when you look at your wardrobe and think, “oh I’ve got nothing to wear” when actually you bought a dress two months ago that you still haven’t worn haha. Anyway, I’ll stop rambling… let’s go!
Hey cutie! How are you? Sorry for the late night post haha but I was just waaaay too excited to post this and wanted to post it now! Okay so a few months ago I have finally found my substyle (not that it’s taken me 10 years or anything…) and have since then started to build my himekaji wardrobe, first focusing on winter items. It’s taken a while and I know that I’ve still got a long way to go, but I wanted to create this post anyway to track my progress! I’ll also include some of my favourite outfits with these said items.
Are you ready? Okay, let’s go!
Hey cutie! How are you? Is it sad that I’m actually excited to share this post with you? Ever since my last post I have fully thrown myself into old-school himekaji so here are a few of my recent himekaji coords for Autumn (or Fall, if you’re from America)! By the way, most of these pictures were taken over the past month or so (before our second lockdown).
Gosh it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts and I’ve missed it so, so much! Now that we are in our second lockdown I’m trying to create as many outfits as possible for when we go out food shopping (lol) and today I want to show you how I’ve styled a cute Lizmelo in four different ways. My main goal this Winter is to try and wear himekaji as much as possible, and now that I’ve been able to style this dress in four different ways, my goal doesn’t seem so unreachable!
Okay, let’s go!
(The worn photos were taken before lockdown btw).
In all of my life, I have never traveled/went abroad in December (apart from that one really awkward holiday with an ex boyfriend’s family but let’s not talk about that…). I am a real creature of comfort so cold, rainy weather is a huge no-no for me. Like nah, I’d rather stay inside in the warmth, ta. But the thought of going to Germany – Munich to be precise – in Winter was exhilarating, and the past few weeks were spent chasing (lost) ASOS orders and running up and down the stairs of numerous shops to try and put together some wintery and comfy outfits. So here’s my winter holiday packing list!
Wow okay this was totally not supposed to happen, but I just found myself with nothing to do and I thought: why don’t I doll up? It’s been ages since I’ve done so so I thought I’d give it a shot. As you may or may not already know that I haven’t really had any quality time to myself as I’ve been doing lots of uni work – so it was nice to just relax and do nothing all day!
But because I haven’t been blogging in so long or taking a break from my work (apart from yesterday’s post) I found myself treading water; I’m not really going anywhere but I’m still trying to get through all of these barriers that are like waves crashing over me. I’m at loss of what to do and I just want to sit back and not have to worry about anything.
The thing is that I want to do my absolute best at getting the grades needed at uni to be a successful designer, and I’m just dying to get there.
Anyway, enough of this rambling and onto the photos! I’m going to do gal around once a week to keep me going for the #dandie challenge on instagram! #dandie is basically a gyaru tag game to where Danyy and Chaudie try to do our best gal look and post it in instagram. Anyone who wants more exposure to other gals are welcome to participate, and it’s created by the lovely Chaudie and Danyy 😀

It actually turned out to be a lot colder than expected so I put on a few more layers!
|Sweater from Select|
I was initially going to put my hair into pigtails because it’s been ages since I’ve actually done with my hair. I have the hair skills of a turtle D: I couldn’t decide whether to keep my hair down so I went along and took some photos with pigtails anyway.
So… I don’t know which one to pick! Which do you guys prefer; hair down or hair up? ^^
That’s all for now~
Was totally not supposed to post this until tomorrow, but I pressed “publish” instead of “save” *facepalm*. Oh well!
Last week was probably the last week that we actually had pretty nice weather. I still froze my bleedin’ ass off but it was lovely and sunny (was a bitch when I was driving as the sun went in my eyes quite a lot). So I took this chance to doll up because, for some strange reason, I love dolling up when it’s sunny.
Unfortunately it was a bit of a waste dolling up as I was only outside my house for like, 4 hours because of uni but OH WELL I had fun anyway!
I’m really winter-fying my outfits right now because I’m just getting so fed up of wearing slouchy jumpers and jeans and generally being lazy! It’s nice to wear something nice, tehe.
|Shirt from Primark, Belt from Julia Boutique (gyaru sales),
tights from Select, shorts from Reveal, boots from Dorothy Perkins
|May I say how much I love this belt?|
I’m going to start trying out new eye make techniques now because I’m just getting so bored with what I usually do D: So this is probably the last time you see me do this “casual” make! (Apart from my next Gyaru on the Go post, which shall be done relatively soon…)
’tis all for now, folks! Until next time.
Designed a new signature, woop woop! 😀
Not a very interesting title, but oh well!
Now that I’m back at uni I don’t really have the time to doll up (I never did really because of work but… yeah) however I have been trying to dress up a little more! Been living in jeans and t-shirts way too much for the last couple of weeks because of the fact a) I was ridiculously tired and b) I didn’t want to “waste time” and do as much uni work as possible while I was awake.
Here’s a few of my coords that I wore last week! No makeup and hair skills obv, so ignore that part 😛
|Forever 21 sweater, BHS necklace, Reveal shorts, Select tights, Hidden boots|
|West One sweater, Quiz jeans, Dorothy Perkins boots|
|New Look hat, Primark sweater, H&M skirt, Select tights, Dorothy Perkins boots|
And now here are my gets! I went shopping the other day with J from uni, and spent – I kid you not – £40 in Primark! Crap, didn’t expect to buy that much… It’s because we don’t have a Primark where I’m at so I took full advantage of it’s cheap-ness :3
I have a huge thing for big knits at the moment, mainly due to the ridiculously cold weather! It’s actually worrying me how cold it is… Because I didn’t really have many winter-y clothes at all! So I was kind of glad I spotted the grey one from Primark and red from Select!
|Obv. these aren’t all of the items… But didn’t really wanna
show my underwear to the whole world!
I got this gorgeous coat from one of my friends who I always buy brand items from, for £15! How amazing is that? Sorry for the blurriness of the photo… But yeah it’s so warm and nice to wear *_* At least I’m prepared if it snows or anything!
Here’s me wearing it with my outfit from my last post:
|I love it so much!|
I also just recently – like today – bought this onesie! I had my eye on it for a time as I thought it definitely had an oraora look to it!
P.S Here’s a shoutout to Chaudie for helping me with this blog; to Bloomzy for explaining “real” blogging; and to the lovely River for always reblogging my photos on tumblr *_*That’s all for now folks! Until next time~
Still on a semi-hiatus~
I decided to take down my previous post because I just realised how personal it was; I do love you, my dear readers, but the day after when I saw the post it actually affected me and made me feel a lot worse… I’d like to thank all of those wonderful people who made comments on that post; it seriously does mean a lot.
I’m currently staying at my parents’ house for a couple of weeks until everything is sorted, although because of the circumstances I didn’t really bring everything I needed with me. Like warm clothes, for example. Boy it’s getting cold now!
I’m actually really excited for winter which is a first because I always hated it. I guess it’s because I’m looking forward to finally having hot chocolate, snuggling in front of the fire, and wearing big comfy ol’ jumpers! Thing is though, I’m totally unprepared for it.
So me, K and my mum went shopping to get some supplies, and these are what I bought~
|Found this on the sales rack! Been reduced by 50% and seeing as it was the
only one left in my size… Might as well!
|A much-needed winter coat!|
|And, of course, some boots!|
And now for a MA*RS skirt that my lovely boyfriend bought for me! I had been dying to buy this skirt for ages, and wasn’t going to buy it at all until he was like, “I’ll buy it for you!” And of course I had to say yes to that!
Also, now that the first issue of Gal VIP has been released, I am “allowed” to show you some post-production photos! :3 I have two sets as one of them was for the cover shoot where I worked with Amelie~ <3
And let’s end this post with a lovely cuppa’ hot chocolate that K made me! :3~
