Kawaii Street: Magical Bookworm
I’m actually really honored to debut this Magical Girl Jumper Skirt. I’ve been meaning to work on kawaii bottoms in my closet, and this was just the perfect addition. I’ve been looking into how to support smaller known/indie shops that sell items for kawaii/Jfashion/alternative. Well, there’s no time like the present to start those changes. So let me tell you about Meowsamagicalworld. This shop on Etsy is producing quality skirts by hand. Color me pink impressed. When I tried on the skirt and attached the strap pieces, I was starstruck by how soft and well it fits. Delivery for me didn’t take so long, as the designer only lives a time zone away. She was also just really accommodating and kind about me testing out her product. I tried out her first design, and from that time she’s only made her designs more kawaii and professional. This Kawaii business is about to soar.
Magical Girl Time:
Unfortunately for me, the sun decided to play hide and seek all weekend. So my debut was met with rain, clouds, and the warm scent of a bookstore. My look was inspired by the skirt itself, taking the heart features and throwing in some classy black and white adornments. Wearing this skirt reminded me of my initial joy of dressing the way I do. Why cause each outfit reminds me of the moment before a magical girl spins into her transformation. While most magical girls wear bright colors, I like to think pairing this skirt with a classy black, and white accent made the skirt pop out more. Especially with my black petticoat to spruce up its magic.
Other elements of style I infused included my pink mini pigtails, clipped with giant black buttons, and the headband holding the bow that matched the skirt. I liked the duality of black and pink, its bright but classy pairing reminds me of the joy of a good book. You’re at home having an adventure in bed. Makeup was glittery but straightforward. Inspired with the colors of the skirt I focused on pink tones, and glitter to maintain the magical feeling of being a magical girl. I threw on some pink gems around my eyes and set up those bookworm snob glasses to complete my magical girl look at the book store.
