Back in the summer, I was asked how I had the courage to dress gyaru and at the time I thought "there is nothing courageous about it, I just dress as I like" because I was in Japan and no matter how plain or strangely I dressed people would stare at me. Well, and generally in Japan you can see more varied types of fashion in the cities. But when I got back to the US, I could understand why they asked that question.
Shirt: Target kid's section
Just wearing a fedora with casual clothing and makeup gets me constant stares and even dropped jaws. I can tune it out, but at the same time I feel it's really ridiculous that I stand out being even just casually fashionable. But I am still trying to dress up when I can, which is usually school nights.

One nice thing about university is I can dress up pretty crazy and noone says anything to me. I know I wouldn't be able to get away with as much at high school (and middle school would be right out!) and even one of the girls I frequently have classes with said she liked my new style haha!

Hat, scarf, purse: Hot Topic
Shirt: no brand
Skirt: no brand
I've also been asked if I am still dressing up now that I am back in the US, and so I thought it would be good to show some of the outfits I've worn so far. I'm struggling with some serious weight gain, and so many days I am honestly too depressed and too heavy to fit into my clothing. But I will try harder, so I can keep sharing my coordinates!
So in this post you can see the coordinates I wore during my first week of uni classes. The first outfit was fairly casual, but still a bit rock hopefully. I just wanted to wear that blue and black shirt haha! The second outfit turned out better than I expected, and I was surprised the hair worked too! haha, I want to wear that again^^ But the third outfit, it just didn't suit me, it was fun to try though.
