Last week I got a little bit depressed 'cause I returned back from Japan and I don't have any idea when I will go the next time again *sigh*.
I had a great time again, met old and some new friends and I got an eye of the changing fashion there.
I decided, I won't blog about Japan... maybe just a summary or something like that...it's too much 'cause I was there 2 1/2 weeks *lol*.
But now...just thoughts and recent things ^^
To go shopping at Shibuya 109 was, of course, one of my personal highlights again but I had the strange feeling that a lot of things changed and Japanese Gyaru fashion is going to be endangered.
You still have the 'Big One's' like Ma*rs, d.i.a., Cecil Mc Bee (which brand is very lightening and not very gyaru-ish), Liz Lisa etc.
BUT a lot of shops changed in 109 and my friend Lau told me, that there is now an Adidas shop... I won't believe that until I saw it with my own eyes.
And I was surprised that SBY shop is closed in the upper floor... does anybody know if it will be re-opened?
There was no notice...
I was also shocked when I heard that the Gyaru bible, THE Gyaru magazine EGG should be discontinued. Why? No Ageha anymore, no Happy Nuts, no Soul Sister... magazines with less readers 'cause maybe too specific but...EGG???
|latest egg issue...last one ever?|
Is Gyaru dying?
Anyway... I still like that kind of fashion so I will continue to wear what I want when I want even I did never call myself a Gyaru!
And happily I discovered a brand for me again: GARULA!
So maybe it's love at second sight for me, ha ha...
It's a more lighter version than d.i.a., much more colorful, much more cheap but a little bit similar. Hopefully that brand will survive!
Because I want to change my style a little bit I want to sell some clothes. Maybe...if you're interested have a look at my Kleiderkreisel page.
I loaded up some things and will refresh my clothes there soon.
For my trip to Japan I had done my nails since a lot of months. I missed it a lot but it's impossible to wear long nails at my work *sigh*. You feel much more better with nails! Next time I will make them green for a Gachapin style, ha ha... I can't await it!
Also I made a decision to colour my hair again. I like my brown hair but it's a little bit boring to me so I will go back to blonde soon.
Yumachi inspired me for that style. I would like to have a mix between brown and blonde and maybe some light pink. I will never have just creepy blonde again but I think this is a good option!
So let's see, how and when I will go for it!
And last but not least: I started to play Pokémon X! All my friends played it and told me, how great the games are. Thanks to lovely Mao now I can try it by myself. She lend me her Nintendo 3DS with Pokémon X.
The design and the artwork is awesome! Even my hardcore Pokémon time is gone it's fun to me to play it again but hell, I don't know the half of the Pokémon anymore! How many do they have? x____X
Next weeks will be interesting I hope: I would like to visit the Japan Day in Duesseldorf, the DoKomi, an anime and manga convention and hopefully make new plans for my next trip to Japan!
See ya! And take care!
