So I’ve noticed the ‘Friday Fashionista’ posts have been based around different styles of Lolita so far, so this week and in weeks to come I’m going to start branching out into other Japanese street fashions. Let me introduce you to Sachiko. For those of you who have seen her before, you will notice how she wears tons of hairclips, necklaces, bright clothes… so what is this bold and cute style? It’s called decora!
Decora is a term taken from the english word ‘Decoration’. I think it’s the perfect way to sum up the fashion! You decorate yourself in as many accessories as possible to create an adorable and unique look. But of course each layer is carefully thought through and it can take months to perfect your style. You can add your own touch in many ways, this could be a cute mask, crazy hair, or mixing other styles with decora such as fairy kei and sweet lolita.

Sachiko attended HJ last year, and I heard this year she will be representing decora in the Japanese street fashion show! How exciting! I can’t wait to see what colourful outfit she will come up with. You can keep up to date with the HJ fashion events on the website and on facebook. She also has recently started up a decora information blog on blogspot, as well as a coordination advice blog on tumblr. So if this post has inspired any of you to try out the style, be sure to check those out!
Three of my favourite coordinations of Sachiko’s. I especially like the middle one where she uses a lolita skirt from ‘Angelic Pretty’ in her outfit
Don’t forget, only 4 days to go until the ilovecrafty coordination contest ends! Enter your cutest japanese street fashion outfit to win great prizes! I should get back to posting more after my last exam on Monday. Bye bye ~ ☆ﾐ(o*･ω･)ﾉ
