Hello readers! Have any of you guys ever heard of Gyaru or the Gyaru fashion movement in Japan? Well if you haven't GOOGLE it!! Or you probably won't know what I talking about throughout this post.
I have had my eye on a few young (black) women who have engulfed themselves in Gyaru fashion and I wanted in.
The only drawback was that I saw Gyaru in many aspects is childlike and too playful. It wasn't as mature and acceptable in my line of work as 20s-50s Vintage and Pinup.
However, I have finally found a subsection of Gyaru that I can comfortably squeeze into my fashion journey. Its called Himekaji or Hime Gyaru.
Now here me out Vintage Lovers, I have no intention to fully switch my style and become a full fledged Gyaru. The big lashes and circle lenses thing is just too dramatic for me personally; and ain't no way I'm abandoning my Cat Eyeliner and Red Lipstick!
However, Himekaji which is a toned down version of the over the top Hime Gyrau fits into my steady growing Vintage attire already.
Hime Gyaru and Himekaji incorporate a lot of pink, lace, chiffon, ribbons, bows, ect. blouses and super floral and girly styled dresses, accessories, shoes and everything else a Fashionista loves and lives for! Like I said I don't plan on becoming a Gyaru or even calling myself one. But you may be seeing tags such as #Himekaji or #Hime Gyaru from now on.
That's all for now Fashionistas, no pictures in this post so like I said GOOGLE it or even try Tumblr. Any pictures I could have provided would have come from there anyway.
