So today I received an E-mail from someone who saw my blog. Her email inspired me to write this.
I feel like a lot of Gals who are new to the whole Gal fashion/life style feel pressure on them because certain online communities make it seem like there are set rules to the fashion, 'If you don't do this, then you suck, you're not GAL'.
You don't always have to go by what's in the Gal Magazines, yeah they're nice to look at and get inspiration from them, but chances are someone dressed up those models, did their hair and make up to make them look Gal. I'm not bashing Gal Mags and Models, I like to look at them for inspiration and style ideas (that's what the mags are there for)^^, but just remember that you don't always have to look like them or base your style off them~
The real Gals are out and about doing their thing.
My point is: It's ok to put your own twist on this style/life style. It's ok to not go by what's in the magazine, granted that the make up style has a certain look to make you look Gyaru. Also there are certain elements in a Gals style that make her a Gal.
But don't be scared to try something new with your style. Don't be scared to buy clothing that aren't Gal brands. you make it Gal, along with other elements^^
How do you think this all started?
Don't feel confined by all these rules, be creative with your look, add your own personal touch to everything you do.
