Battle Mage - Magical Girl

Inspired by my love of Anime Magical Girls, this facet of my writing and style represents my Kawaii (Japanese for “Cute”) lifestyle. I admire Ultra Femme aesthetics, the color pink, and magic. From Sailor Moon to Sanrio this part of me is 100% invested in being Kawaii and Fierce. This is the newest of my inner selves, and perhaps most famous for “Pink Energy”. I have a fiery spirit and temper and I protect femme energy, Kawaii lifestyles and all kawaii melanin I come across. Unique to this writing voice, “Kawaii Journalism”  a writing style I created on my own, is to share the intersection in kawaii lifestyles, and mentality. You can look forward to seeing my work featured soon, but for now enjoy it on my blog.

You can catch this guide to navigate you to my Kawaii blogging, and cute style and cute ideas.

Pinstripe Sweetie:

I adore my outfit for Sakura Matsuri because it served looks not once but twice. Today’s outfit was featured on Saturday for DC Web Fest and Sakura Matsuri. I can confidently say my favorite application of kawaii styles is in business. The shirt I wore, was an eccentric find at a local thrift store in the men’s section. It’s genuinely too big, so I was worried my impulse buy would never see the light of day. I was wrong. Taking business shirts to Jfashion looks is a new hobby for me. I like the idea I take the corporate mandated structure that comes with business apparel and mix it with kawaii chaos.

When I woke up Saturday morning, I instantly knew what inner character I wanted to present and express. I felt drawn to coordinating around the pinstripe shirt. In my mind, I wanted to feel that my coord would encompass the vibrancy of my kawaii lifestyle yet present professionalism. It worked. With the pinstripe shirt as my focus, I built around that. I really need to work on more kawaii bottoms, because I have many tops and no skirts or pants. It’s a mess. I also just don’t have pink tights, which is why I default to wearing black bottoms so frequently. If you know of any places that offer kawaii bottoms in a vibrant color or pastel, please slide straight to my DM’s with those links. My closet requires a hero.

Accessorizing this business casual look was easy! I have plenty of accessories thanks to Un-Re Designs. My favorite being the giant buttons! As you can see I use them a lot in my Coords cause I’m getting versatile with the application of accessories. I liked attaching the Pusheen lion plushie for the culture of cute and cats to match the beret! This outfit also featured a lovely necklace that spelled out “Love” which complimented the rings, but my collar blocked it from showing. It’s a detail I wish more people saw.
