Different Styles

Hello Lovelies!

This post will tell you about my three fashion styles and maybe it will help you discover your personal style!

Welcome back to my website. Today I decided that I would explain a bit about my style in detail. Now style is a way for someone to express themselves not just in the fashion world, and for me personally I apparently have lots of self-expression, as I have three styles but at the same time only one style but it is a mix of different styles, which leads to it being my personal style and yeah let me break this all down for you.

Style 1: Trendy With An Edge

The first style I wear lots is the basic “edgy, trendy, city girl” Is that three on its own? Well no, not really. To me, this one is all about being the most fashionable diva ever. I show off that I am confident, bold, and a trendsetter, but I still remain classy. Some examples for this style would be like Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl meets Chanel Oberlin from Scream Queens and Veronica Lodge from Riverdale all in a darker colour palette with some light colours occasionally incorporated and mixes of prints and fabrics. But I normally stick to deep colours since I have pale skin and like to make it stand out. The colours I generally wear in this style would be the Reds, Blacks, Greys, Whites, Purples and Pinks. Now Here are some of my outfits (I am reusing some photos from my blog to show these as I currently can’t do a photo shoot this weekend!) I would generally wear this style when I am on a hair dying break to keep my hair healthy (currently I have an auburn brown hair colour so I am wearing this style for a bit)

 

Style 2: Gothic Glam

This next style is gothic. Now goths do not get offended because yes I do love The Sisters O Mercy, Suxioue and The Banshees, Bauhaus, and many other gothic bands. Yes, I know about the background and culture of goth. No, I do not just wear the style because it is “unique and cool” I generally Love the full style, background, etc. Just because someone wears different styles does not make them a “poser” OKAY now that we got that out of the way because there is always someone who complains as this is the internet. It is pretty self-explanatory for this style. Lots of blacks, velvets, lace, etc. I put a “glam diva twist” on this style and yes there is a substyle of goth called glam goth. And my personal fave styles of goth fashion or Trad and Glam so I go for a mix of those elements and I live for it. I will wear this style usually when I have coloured hair since black matches every hair colour and my other styles don’t look great when I have neon hair haha.

 

Style 3: Kawaii/Lolita

Lastly, we have my super cute Japanese style called Lolita Fashion. This style is very out there and makes me feel so cute and happy. I wear the Sweet and Gothic Lolita sub-styles. This is a very pricey fashion and not very practical but I still wear it casually and have a blast every time. If I am ever sad I can just wear it and instantly feel better, if I feel like my current outfit is too bland I will put lolita on, If I just want to look cute I will wear it, if I feel like wearing it I will. I really don’t need a reason it’s just an “in the moment” kind of outfit. Some days when I have tons of time to get ready I will wear this and just feel the cutest and happiest I can be. The best part about this style is that it has a community of people who all love the fashion and have meetups and just overall are like a family and it is just such a welcoming style and I feel like this one really shows a lot about my personality since some people wear it to anime conventions and lots of girls in anime wear it too, I love anime. It’s super cutesy and childish, I am very childish and love cutesy things. The list for this style will go on because I have been wearing it since I was 12 (17 now) and I just feel it so much and it gives me so much joy! Also, lots of people wear wigs with this fashion which means if my hair doesn’t match I can just put on a wig and be good. But sometimes my fun colourful hair looks amazing with this look too! So it’s a win, win style.

 

I hope you learned more about me, my style, and why I wear these outfits. Maybe you’ll discover more styles and more about yourself through this post. I hope you enjoyed my outfits and don’t be afraid to change up your look and just have fun! People change all the time and so does your style, trust me I have been through pretty much every style phase ever. #CringeAtMyEmoDays #YellowNails yikes! But I am not super embarrassed by my childhood style phases since they opened new doors for me and I discovered these styles and I have evolved in my fashion journey and my styles and preferences will continue to change all the time because that’s normal especially for someone who has loved fashion their whole life. What is your fave style? Let me know In the comments I would love to know what you think of my style(s) and just what your current style is too!

Sweet Lolita OOTD

Hello Lovlies!

Long time no see! I feel like blog posts are more special if I post them whenever and not on a schedule but maybe that’s just me being lazy. Anyways sorry for the lack of posts I was feeling uninspired lately but hopefully I’m back on track! So as you guys know I like dressing in many different fashion styles not just whatever is trendy which is pretty much the only thing I post about but honestly I don’t always like what’s trendy so why would I buy things I don’t like and not dress like the real me? I wanna be real with people and not fake, anyway enough of my random rant or whatever, today i’m showing you guys one of my all time favourite fashion styles ever and that is Lolita Fashion. Lolita Fashion is a Japanese street style that started in Harajuku Japan and has spread throughout the world and it’s about being elegant, innocent, and cute. Not a lot of people know about this fashion style but it’s honestly one of my favourites and I’m super excited to share it with you today, so let’s get a look at my Lolita coordinate aka outfit shall we.

Here is a full view of my outfit or as the Lolita community calls it a Coordinate. For those of you who don’t know the fashion this might’ve surprised you and you may find it very out there and weird. I’m wearing a Sweet Lolita Coordinate and there are many different sub-styles of Lolita and I love them all! A few sub-styles would be: sweet, gothic, classic, bittersweet, euro, and many more. Honestly there’s so many you’d have to google to find a list. Mine is more sweet and a little bit bittersweet. The main thing you’ll see in lolita is the cupcake shape of the dresses and skirts which is achieved by a petticoat. It gives you that big poof!

neck

What I love about this dress is the fun neck style! I just love when necklines cross over like that and having that little bow in the center really makes it. As you can see the style is very doll like and kind of childish too, but at the same time it’s very elegant and beautiful.

print

Here’s a close up on the print. My dress is from a site called BodyLine and the print of my dress is called Striped Balloon Bears. The theme is little teddy bears and balloons obviously, and the stripe part of the name is for the overall print of the dress which is black and white striped, but you can get in many different colours I just like the black one for more of a “bittersweet” inspired Lolita look to it.

wrist

On my wrists are things called Wrist Cuffs, which are kind of like sleeve stoppers I suppose. They just add a fun little touch and help complete the overall outfit. I made my wrist cuffs from lace and I use these pretty pink beaded bracelets as an ascent to make them look more completed.

sock skirt

shoes

In Lolita fashion it’s very impotent to show as little skin as possible, so generally you’d wear tights or knee high socks always topped with some sort of lace. I’m wearing these pretty black knee high socks I found at Ardene and they’re super Lolita! You can easily find little things at normal stores to help complete an outfit. My shoes I ordered off of BodyLine and they’re a super light pink but show up more white on camera but in person they’re a super cute baby pink.

ring

I found my little cupcake ring at an anime convention last Fall, but I also like to make my own rings and accessories out of polymer clay. One of the best parts of Lolita fashion is that you can make lots of the things you’ll wear and use, plus it gives you so much self expression!
