Gyaru Improvement Meme! :: Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Got this meme from the lovely Lizzie. It's really weird to see just how much I've changed in less than a year.

Honestly, I've known about Gal for going on 4 years now. I considered myself semi-gyaru for quite a while... without really having enough 'umph' to put the kind of focus necessary to achieve the style. Finally, around October of last year, I thought to myself, let's do this! and got my butt in gear.
Oh, did I mention I've also lost 14 lbs (6.4 kg) since that time as well?
I'm still evolving and changing, so this is fun to see where I've been, and leave the future open to find where I'm going

Click on the pictures to enlarge!


I think I'm going to do a co-ord one as well sometime in the future. I think my style has evolved quite a bit since last October as well!!

AND~! What I wore today.

I notice that once I wear something kind of dark or rockish or 'sexy' the next day I get dressed, I go for a much sweeter look. My style has ADHD, what can I say.
Also, from the last full body picture, my head looks a lot more proportional. That's what it really looks like. The angle I usually use makes my head look GINORMOUS! So, I might take more from the lower camera angle from now on.

Lots of smiles today! I was in a good mood, what can I say!

And 2 up close and personal pics. And, a funny face as well. I haven't been making as many lately. I'll have to remedy that!!!

Tomorrow at 8:30am I start my new job.... super excited, but also incredibly nervous. I already know the girl who is essentially going to be my manager (and I LOVE HER) and I've already met my new doctor... but I'm still really nervous. I know my profession (ps, I'm an optician, just in case some of you have missed that) but I don't know *EXACTLY* what they are going to have me do at this new office.
Unfortunately, that means my nerves are a little frazzled now, and I'm probably not going to sleep all that well tonight! BOOOO!
So, if you will, wish me luck ladies!

Thank you SO much!!!

It really takes a long time to put contacts in the first time! It can be very difficult for some people. And, circle lenses are especially hard because they are generally a LOT bigger than regular contacts.
I'm sure you're not stupid! They just might not be for you! <3

The meme was a really good idea, I'm so happy you thought of it! <3

Thank you!!! I do so try to dress well! And, just cause you have a serious job doesn't mean you can't still be cute!

youre an inspiration to me!! :)
i love gyaru and i think we have similar body types... i have large hips but a smaller bust and i have curves but theyre more soft like yours
im pretty self conscious so i am scared to dress gal sometimes because i am not standard japanese gal size and i feel defeated when im on ebay looking at measurements and theyre like xxxxxxsmall haha
but you make me feel more show me that i can still dress super cute even if my body is different
thank you, youre a great gal :)

Thank you Phi! You just paid me the best compliment I've gotten in a long time, and it means a lot to me!

For a really long time, I thought I couldn't be really gal because I was very far from a size zero and so many of the cute clothes would NEVER fit me! Even some girls on gyaru_secrets called me fat, and I thought for sure I couldn't ever really fit in.
But, after a while, I learned that just because I can't necessarily do some of the styles exactly, I could change them to fit me and look good on *ME* and that it matters more to me that I feel pretty than what others think of me.
You can do it too! Find your own niche and blaze your own trail gal! We curvy gals need to ban together and show the rest of the world that we can rock the style as well as if not better than the "perfect" bodies!
Thank youuu SO much! <3
