Sometimes I wonder if my ultimate gyaru style goals are appropriate for my current lifestyle.
I mean, I love and adore Hime & Agejou. I love the hair and the makeup that goes with it. But in the end, I know that I can't personally do the style unless I drop the weight, starve, and maybe donate my butt and thighs to charity (man, that would be some tax write off).
But then I come across this photo. And It's like, the mothership is calling me home. That this is what I've been dreaming of. Yes it looks pretty plain, but I know that I would give it that va-va-voom! The Hair is perfect, I can tweak the makeup with gal lashes. And oh the accessories I could add to it. I can contort the above look into almost anything I want.
So, how is my style defined now? Well I can describe it in a few words below:
Bombshell, Luxury, Glam
(or Serebu, in Gyaru terms)
I don't feel the need to look cute/kawaii/dolly if you will... but I need to have that sensual seductive look that makes people want to look, but also afraid to approach or touch. I want to give off my motherly warmth in a "for display only" type sense.
this is exactly how I dress around the house.
This is my idea of dressing up to hang with friends
This is my idea of a simple 'out and about' outfit
This is how I view my sisters and I.
(I'm Kort, Joey is Kim, and Momoko is Khole, no lie)
Another reason why I've been thinking about this is also because of the kimonos.
I can't be daring and wear the prostitute kimono... My husband would kill me >.<
And honestly, The long sleeved Kimonos are age/status appropriate for me now.
I'm pretty sure as a westerner I could get away with breaking a couple of the rules, But I can't stand knowing that I'm disrespecting someone's culture.
So here I am again. Becoming the Serebu Gyaru
