outfits and a gift from studioTO

So I've got some outfits I didn't really feel like I needed to post here, but well I decided I put the effort in the first place so I might just aswell share them~

Photobucket
This one was for the bbq we had in Rox' house, even before I went to paris!

Photobucket
this one was for my aunt's birthday

and here's something completely different:

Sometimes I'm just tired of my style~ I need a change and I need to make styling easyer for myself. If I wouldn't love hair styling this much, I'd get a bob with a fringe, but it just won't work out with my style, I want my hair as long as I can get it.. I need to rethink my style and mess up my closet, that would do me good I bet. College is starting again next week, this means a fresh start! I'll be dieting a bit to get back to my old weight, I might do something about my haircolour and my birthday is coming soon so it's time to make up my mind about where I wanna take my style!

And here's my cute new StudioTO gift, in their new style :D
Photobucket
I got one last winter and now I have one with cute little eyes :D I love this one so much!! I love how they did the detail on the top and the shorts ♥
I'm so happy when I get these! it makes me feel pretty and motivated :D

Abunaicon~!

Last saturday it finally happened, our Gyaru fashionshow that Rox worked so hard for.
And off course our gyaru fashion lecture, I'm not very good at talking in front of people, unless I train my words and memorize it exactly, I'm bound to be pretty akward.
Photobucket
Luckilly Rox' slideshow that accompanied the lecture helped me through most of it. (I'm this type of person, a researcher, not a talker and definetly no leader~).

But in the end I'm pleased enough, especially when I watch this video of the fashionshow :D I'm pretty happy!

Thanx so much Sascha for filming this for us! And so sorry we couldn't hang out as much D:
And super thanx to Elize for filling in for Marije when it turned out she couldn't walk for us ♥

Paris trip!

Well. I went on this Paris trip to kind of get away from everything, but in the end I can't keep some things to myself.

I didn't buy a lot in Paris because frankly I'm just really poor at the moment. So this is all I got:
Photobucket

Paris has all these cute souvenirs with the Eiffel tower on it, that kind of makes it instant cute~ I saw these cute necklaces with a little Eiffel tower charm and a ribbon or a cat or something on it, I wanted to buy it for my friends and maybe take one for the giveaway I intend to host in September (my birthday month :D) but I couldn't find them anymore and I was very sad D:
Photobucket

I wanted to make a stop at some of the lolita shops Paris has and I was surprised to find Harajuku selling cute items from Yumetenbou and cute nails and deco-stickers.
But I didn't buy anything. I just don't have any money and I didn't have a "spark" with any of the items.

I'm sorry for posting very minimally lately. I'll make a little survey soon so I can get a little feedback and pump up the quality here a little~

Houndstooth making a comeback?

Just by chance it was yesterday that I was watching old gyaru pics and I remembered the good old days when hoondstooth checks made any outfit rock. Ma*rs and Gold's made the old-fashioned houndstooth sexy with tight dresses, and Cecil McBee added a classic glow to sexy shorts with a nice woolen houndstooth.
I loved houndstooth print myself and I've cherished my old houndstooth scarf for 4 years or something.
Some old examples of houndstooth print:

When I was checking the f/w pieces Ma*rs got online, I stumbled across this shot where they either pulled out an old classic or maybe actually redesigned the houndstooth dress!
Photobucket
Now, I wouldn't make the latter assumtion, if I wouldn't have seen a lot of houndstooth coming back on the ma*rs blogs!

Now, honestly I highly doubt a houndstooth comeback this year, but it's nice to see some of it reappear and who knows, my prayers might be heard someday!! it was just nice spamming some houndstooth right? :P

Gyaru Challenge 5: Mode gyaru.

Rox is the creator of the Gyaru Challenge, and anyone can give Gyaru Challenge a try, it's really..challenging XD

The styles attempted in the Gyaru Challenge aren't my (new) personal style. I'm not claiming to perfectly copy a style or to be an expert, I'm just having a taste of everything :)

Lyn Duncan suggested I try Mode style for the challenge! This was something I was looking forward to from the beginning of the challenge! I had a lot of fun with it and this style is something I might want to learn a bit more :)

Outfit 1:
Photobucket
Photobucket
Did I feel mode? Not sure...maybe I felt more onee than mode, maybe I needed more kind of gypsy-like accesories.

Outfit 2:
Photobucket
Photobucket
Did I feel mode? Yes kind of. did I feel gal? not so much..but that's because I didn't put effort in my makeup and I don't feel half as gal without long blonde hair honestly.. kudos to all gals with dark hair, I wouldn't be able to do it U_U

It seems I got kinda stuck in the high-waist flowy-top pattern. But in fact I tried some coordinates before, one super typical one with a long black dress and a light green short lace top over it but this somehow did NOTHING for my figure.
The first outfit just works because those pants are sexy, but I should've gone with other shoes. And the shorts in the second outfit, even though they are just laaarge size shorts that I pulled up to be high-waisted XD (that's why they don't flatter), cut the thigh in the right place~

I'm not here next week on monday so I might move the next challenge to the tuesday! or possibly even later D:

Outfit and some little news thingies :)

This weekend Rox and I went to Utrecht to start planning our gyaru lecture at Abunai and even more to meet friends that were going to the Dir en Grey concert.

My outfit for that day was:

Making good use of the GOLDEN PANTS ♥
Photobucket
I had a lot of fun that day, too bad we don't have a groupshot D:

I got another blogawaaaard ♥ From the lovely Christina~!! How can I get blog awards from girls as cute as she is ♥ Thank you so much!!

Now, in varied newsies:
I was asked to participate in this weekend's Japanese-subculture-fashionshow in the SIEBOLTHUIS in Leiden. So anyone going there, be sure to keep an eye open for me :D

And beside that, I'll be going to PARIS for the weekend NEXT WEEK.
This is because my mom really needed a couple days away from her family and she already sacrificed our vacation together to sailing with her siblings but she missed having some "time off" so we wanted to go somewhere for a little city trip.
Innitially the idea was London! I love London and since they're filming the new season of Sherlock right now and if you keep track of twitter and stuff..well XD
But sadly with all those outrageous riots D: it didn't seem like an option anymore and we decided to give Paris another shot~

And a little side note: Please don't worry about me worrying about my weight. I don't desire to be as thin as Kanako, I just think it's a bit essential to her style to be thin. I don't really care about losing weight. At my current weight I'm at my best, slim but still sexy~ I really do appreciate your care and I'm glad to know everyone loves my shape and my legs XD That's really sweet! Thank you so much!

Gyaru Challenge 4: Kanako Style

Rox is the creator of the Gyaru Challenge, and anyone can give Gyaru Challenge a try, it's really..challenging XD

The styles attempted in the Gyaru Challenge aren't my (new) personal style. I'm not claiming to perfectly copy a style or to be an expert, I'm just having a taste of everything :)

This week's challenge was given to me by Victoria. It was the HARDEST challenge yet.
Even though Kanako's style is very typical and iconic and easy to read, it wasn't that easy to give it a try.
Kanako has moved from the tomboyish co&lu style to her own neon punky style.

The way I first encountered Kanako was when I bought egg for the first time in 2006:
Photobucket
(here in the middle)
Back then Kanako wasn't that different from other models, only her hairstye, that has been short for most of the time untill this very day.
Back then Kanako was my favourite model because she had a sexy shape and stood out with her short hairstyle.
Kanako nowadays is pretty thin, too thin for my taste but this is also what enables her to sport the look she does that makes her so sexy in her own alternative, tomboyish way.

What I did for this look is copy the Kanapunk code..
Problem is I just don't have anything as bright colored as Kanako has.
First thing I did was use the most obvious items I could find, which resulted in this:
Photobucket
But it was a bit too mellow and cold, not as bright as I wanted.

Can't say I went much brighter but I did try to get closer to Kanapunk code
Photobucket
Photobucket
if either the sweater or the petti would be brightly colored it would've been great, or if I'd at least have a cap *_* a real cap XD
I put a LOT of effort, even though the results don't show. That's because I tried lots of looks that just didn't work because I'm not skinny enough or because the colors of the items were too pastelly :( That's why I ended up with 2 big sweater fluffy outfits. Because the kind of shorts and tanktop look turned out very sexy and feminine on me, not as playfull and masculine as it does on Kanako even if I followed the code as close as I could.

Next week should be Mode gyaru :D I've already got some outfits worked out :)

outfit and please vote~!

As you may have noticed, there was no gyaru challenge result last monday D:
I'm doing the Kanako challenge and it's proven to be dificult, but I really really wanna make it work even if it's failure, I want to try more, so I will post the results up next monday!!

I've also taken long to comment on the comments you left, because I tried to get away from all my hobbies for the past 2 days to dive into the paper I gotto write.
Sadly it's not working out and I'm super scared I might not make it D: There is no deadline, which means I don't feel enough pressure to work hard and submit a half-capacity paper, but the professor will probebly have to submit my mark to the exam comity someday soon...so there is an invisible deadline..

Well luckily I do have something to share with you :D an outfit!
Photobucket
Photobucket
And this is the outfit I submitted to the Kawaii.i Facebook contest.

Such wonderfull prizes to win! but the competition is pretty fierce XD Lots of cute gals and lolitas and uniquely styled girls have entered! So if you want you could vote for me here

And if you've also entered please share your entry link here :D I wanna vote for you!
