Hello Everyone, hope you are well.
So spring is on the way…. well it should be, though it’s hard to tell from the weather currently. The high street shops are getting in lots of colourful and pretty pastel items though all ready for when the weather does eventually pick up. This means lots of lovely items suitable for Fairy Kei, Decora and other cute Japanese street styles so I thought I would do a post highlighting some of these items.

Items from Primark:
Primark has a few pretty pastel items in like shoes, plain tops and sunglasses. You can see a few of the items available here in this youtube video by Rachel Pinku. Obviously things vary store to store and unfortunately you can’t buy from them online.

Outfit Shot – Cute Monster?

I went to Em-Con last weekend and decided to keep my outfit fairly casual and simple. I went with a colour choice of pink and black and my theme loosely was monsters (due to my t-shirt and jacket hood featuring a Cyclops monster). It doesn’t really fit a set Japanese Street style, I’d say it has a mixture of dark Oshare Kei, creepy cute and general Harajuku style mixed in.
