I have a new style of lower lashes. It's the inner corner from the upper lashes I'm using. I'm not allowed nail varnish at work so I just quickly painted them plain ^^;
Outfit, puri etc under jump!
This was my outfit!
Hat and scarf: Pink Latte
Jeans: Pink Latte
Jacket: Chinese wholesale
Sneakers: Pastry (bows added by me)
Mark got this really cute photo of Niijii at lunch! Mark couldn't stop about what an amazing person Niijii is after we got home. I have to agree ^^
Facebook has made saving pictures a little more long-winded, but I still grabbed these puri from Niijii's page :3
Crazy face competition :p
We entertained a restaurant full of people with some alley pics! Sadly they were all blurred, but I just loved this one XD
The contrast between my bag (super cheap tacky bodyline) and Floz's amazing Paul's Boutique bag!

I want to talk about another fashion I love. Spank! AKA Fairy Kei. I've always loved pastels and 80's style so... I love Spank! My mum used to tell me off for wearing pastel jumpers and I was wearing legwarmers for years before they were fashionable (my friends grandma knitted them for me!) So this fashion seems perfect for me :)
So I've been accumulating Spank-like stuff recently. I decided not to buy any expensive items at all, but rather try to do it cheap. Since it's my 'second' fashion and I don't know how often I can actually wear this style it's best not to spend too much!
With Spank!/Fairy Kei, it's really important not to over decorate or accessorise. You should have just a few very interesting pastel accessories, rather than a clutter of little ones. So this charm is kind of a risk item. But I love it anyway! From Claire's.
One thing I love about this style is that you can buy kids stuff and kids stuff is cheap! This bag was also from Claire's (younger kids section!)
Too dark/deep colour for the style, but too fun not to buy ^^
These socks were from a very scary warehouse- like shop in Harlow with no proper sign.
The idea of these was... Firstly jelly shoes are often worn by spank girls, and secondly I wanted to show off my pastel socks. But I haven't been able to make them work yet....
Now, something I really love about this style is the opportunity to DIY. I love DIY a lot and in Gal I haven't had that many opportunities beyond distressing jeans.
I searched high and low for some Pastry hi-tops,and my local TKMaxx had some! I added the bows :3
I found this baby PJ set in QD. I liked the print, but not being a baby, it doesn't fit me.
So I used the print to customise a hoodie! The PJ bottoms I used to make the frill and bow.
I'm still working on putting together outfits in this style, so no outfit shots yet!
PS: In case the anon who posted on Gal Secrets reads my blog-
I've been with my fiance 4 years, and been trying gal style for 1.
He's half Asian, if you really want to know.
