i luvv!! hime & ganguro! i love the cute pastels and little deco with hime , it def has that sort of lolita vibe to it. but make it extreme w/ its makeup,  dresses, & big bouncy hair >:3 its the cutest. with ganguro i rlly love all the colorful vibrant colors and the big droopy eye makeup. i luv both of the suttle and extreme looks. maybe im just a lover for the whole cute hawaiian and floral themes :3 i seriously just love both of the aesthetics!!

I’d say my style is heavy on the visual kei/goth lolita side of the spectrum. I mostly find my clothes on second hand sites like Vinted and etsy, but i also have some sides i use like CLOSET CHILD online store or ACDC RAG.


Coincidentally, i made a blog post abt this exact topic today! Contains some links to sites that sell tons of J-fashion clothing worldwide. I feel like that could work for nearly anyone on here. Even gyaru’s, depending on your sub culture.

Thats all :)

 I am a Visual Kei, Ouji, and Aristocrat fan and most of my clothes are DIY i guess,,,, but two good websites are ACDCRAG for Visual Kei and 42Lolita for Ouji. 42 Lolita is owned by the shopping service 42Agent, which lets you shop on Taobao too and thats always a great resource for Lolita and Ouji!

I kind of have created my own style. It is kind of like Pink Punk Kawaii Decora. I usually buy my clothes from Lenzishop. But sometimes I find something cool from Zalando, H&M and Newyorker. Most of my accessories I make by myself, but I buy them from Talking to yourself.

I dress in lolita fashion! I get my clothes from a variety of sources (taobao resellers, secondhand sites like Lace Market, closetchild, and wunderwelt). I also use the Buyee to get stuff from the secondhand Japanese market :D 


My style is sweet with a slight tinge of classic, but I am interested in all lolita substyles (I really want to get into oldschool someday).

I really love decora, menhera, EGA, and generally any gothier edgier Japanese fashions. However, I'm pretty broke irl and feel a little weird fitting my curvier body into certain cuter styles, so I usually just wear outfits that could be best described as "I bet she listens to visual kei and smokes weed" lol


I used to be extremely into lolita fashion and himegyaru. Like, I would refresh the EGL livejournal page every day even though I didn't have a LJ account, and constantly look through japanese fashion magazine scans. I may not have been allowed to buy these cute clothes, but by god I knew every little thing about them at the time. Now I pay taxes and bills and that's all totally lame, but at least I can wear whatever I like now lmao! I just can't afford it orz

I want to buy new clothes, but now with the warmer outside, I need suitable options. I really enjoy wearing tight leggings, but I have been unable to find anything good in the shops. Either the price is too high, or the quality is not very good, or I just don’t like the appearance. Can you please recommend any stores where I can find affordable, high-quality, and visually appealing tight leggings?

I recently bought some leggings from the women's sportswear store "Jane Gun" (https://janegun.com/collections/scrunch-bum-leggings), and I want to share my experience. These leggings have all the necessary properties to create the perfect shape of the buttocks. A high-rise waist lets you feel confident during your workout, while an elasticated butt detail adds volume and lifts your buttocks. Another plus of these leggings is a ribbed waistband that does not restrict movement and does not roll down during active training. The model is 5'7", and I chose size S, which fits my measurements perfectly. The leggings are ankle-length, making them a great choice for workouts in the gym. The material consists of 65% nylon, 30% polyester, and 5% spandex, which allows the leggings to be stretchy and durable in use. I chose washed charcoal which looks very classy, and the silver logo gives them an extra chic. I am very happy with my purchase and can definitely recommend these leggings to anyone who wants to create the perfect shape of the buttocks during training.

I don't have specific Jfashion style that I mainly stick with, however I am gyaru inspired and I do dress Lolita sometimes/occasionally (hopefully more when I get more clothes n stuff)

I thrift my clothes and buy them secondhand like Japanese mecari and Japanese yahoo auctions ^_^ (depop reselling with high price when Japanese mecari has it cheap is so crazy)

i just go by "harajuku goth" but it's like gothic japanese fashion and a bit of scene in it but it barely looks scene :v (kinda like if you mixed trad goth with the character design clothes made for Rin and Gumi in the luvoratorrrrry music video) 

I shop on Shein, Hot Topic, Aliexpress, and Temu, and random dark-looking stores at the mall that may pique my interest (if i see one) :v (i don't realy memorize names well, sorry)

I'm big on decora especially and lolita but I'm also big into goth/scene. Clothing is so very expensive so I often make my own accessories, ask my craft friends and thrift as much as possible. State sales/*rummage sales*/open markets/garage sales are a must for me. So is buying secondhand or defective sales. I always try to aim for quality but that's not always an option. 

I'm also a scaredy cat when it comes to shopping for clothes online, so I haven't done it (yet).

I love Vkei (especially Kote and Okeshou kei, I dress in a weird mixture of both)! I usually get my clothes and accessories from my grandma, fleamarkets or make them myself!

I tend 2 dress in visual kei/visual kei inspired clothes(when I have the energy lol) As for where I buy my clothes, I get stuff mostly from local thrift stores(you would not believe the amount of epic clothes ppl give away) I also get some stuff from hot topic and other random stores in malls and such. I just try my best to find items that could possibly work together, even if they don't really look like they'd work together :3

I'm such a whore for cider, omg they're so pricy but very accommodating and they use such good materials. Remember in the 90s when companies used to not make shitty swimsuit fabric-like outfits? yeah me too.

I'm mostly into lolita (sweet and classic primarily, but oooh do I love the gothic stuff as well). I've only just started collecting some pieces, and 42lolita has been my best friend, as well as Depop for finding things secondhand. Jirai kei has been catching my eye a lot, too, but alas, I have so little closet space and spare money for more clothes~
