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.
This was such a fun challenge and Decora was actually one of the Japanese styles that I really wanted to try out one day, so I can tick that off of my bucket list! Luckily I had quite a few accessories lying around and it was really nice to finally wear them (because some was still in their packaging lol). I didn’t want to break the bank so instead I went with a more pastel purple/bright pink theme and, of course, I had to throw Hello Kitty and My Melody in the mix!

And don’t forget to watch Kristina’s transformation into gyaru, too! She picked amekaji and she looks so perfect!
This was really, really exciting to do. I would love to do Decora again one day because honestly I felt like such a magical girl ( ´ ∀ `)ノ～ ♡ Here are some selfies and outfit pic!
