Post a picture of or describe that kind of style you're going for & caring anons can respond with links to stuff or beauty/outfit advice.

Pic as I loved early KotaKoti style even though she's a trash human. I still do. It's not in trend anymore but I don't care. Any tips for building a wardrobe like this and hair/lenses/makeup? "Order shitty taobao stuff" doesn't really help.

I've also always really loved kota's style; i wouldn't even want to go over the top, just a little bit cutesy, but i'm really worried abou looking like a complete retard, since i'm really tall and kinda had this tough/boyish image all my life…

When i try wearing some cuter stuff, people are always (negativly) surprised or tell me it looks weird

Dakota's fashion style was all over the place, I don't think it ever followed a "trend". In order, it consisted of..
>regular American brands like hollister, old navy, and ralph lauren (more than the kawaii stuff if you didn't notice)
>2011 Liz Lisa
>replicas of Vivienne Westwood (she's liked that brand since before "kotakoti")
>school girl shit: neck ties, white shirts, thigh-length socks, skirts, and mary jane shoes.
>taobao shit. pic related for example was a random Chinese dress from taobao. i remember seeing it.

As for her makeup, Charms said that Dakota told her she was inspired by a mix of gyaru and uzzlang. There is nothing particular about her hair except the color and thinness, both of which are natural. Otherwise it's just long hair with blunt bangs.

No. 62471

>>62447
>>62466
It's a typical "eye-enlarging" makeup. You'll find tutorials all over youtube with similar stuff. The only thing different is that she made her bottom liner lower than her lash line, just like gyarus to make her eyes round.
Her color palette is the one for dark blondes/light brunettes, just some basic beige nudes you can buy anywhere, like Naked Basic 2.

Also natural looking soft blush, no bronzer and no contouring.

If you have long hair like Kota just ask hairstylist to thin them out down from your jaw/chin.

lol stop. there are plenty of models and regular girls who would look better. remember Dakota's shoops were inspired by vlada roslyakova, who imo is much more naturally attractive than her shoops and would probably look straight out of a shouju with that style.

However, you're totally right. If you're not attractive to begin with, then you obviously won't get good results even if you copy the whole thing up and down. Just look at Beckii Cruel, she has practically the same hair and eye color as Dakota, and has styled herself in similar makeup yet she's not nearly as cute, even compared to unshooped Dakota.

As stated, I mostly just want to avoid looking lazy/messy, so advice regarding that would be neat.
The only time I've worn oversized stuff (t-shirts) has been to the gym and so far it just hasn't looked cute on me at all so I haven't worn it outside of that (though I recently got an oversized sweater, so hopefully I'll try a look soon!)

I think my biggest issue with this style is that compared to those girls I have quite bad posture, which I get away with with my regular style, but here I feel like it just highlights the slobiness.

Thanks for the advice!

No. 62511

>>62505
i dress in this style and i love it. cute and comfortable. one thing i would say is that it looks really cute posed in pictures but sometimes when you're just wearing it it can make your shoulders look kind of broad/wide. i've found that wearing a backpack style bag with both straps on helps to cinch it and narrow the silhouette around your shoulders. to avoid looking sloppy always have your bottoms be tight fitting or not showing (like the thrasher tee example). loose pants completely ruin the look. oh, and the "off the shoulder" thing is really only for pics. its really impractical and awkward to try to actually wear a piece of clothing like that.

what do anons think of dita's daytime looks and style? i really love vintage looks, but they've been associated with crazy 3rd wave feminism, and i think that it can age you sometimes. I try to dress very feminine, and I usually wear similar skirts and dresses. my problem is really with the makeup and hair… as much as i love them, i think this black would look horrible and harsh on me, and this bright lipstick would make me look like a clown. ugh.

No. 62521

>>62520
i really like this style. i never think of feminism or anything when i see it to be honest. whenever i've seen someone wearing this out i think they look unique but in a classy and dignified way. i love that its so soft and feminine but also has a real power to it. as for your concerns about hair and makeup, i definitely don't think you have to have the jet black hair to do this look. for me its more about the vintage styles and less about the color. and im pretty sure everyone feels like a clown when they start wearing bright lipstick, but it just takes time to get used to. maybe get some muted/neutral reds (something like riot by limecrime) to ease yourself into it!

I like the clothes I just don't like the hair and makeup she does. It ages her a lot and makes her seem artificial. Like always bright red lipstick , cat eye, dyed black hair and victory rolls, that ridiculous fake mole she draws on. To me it's the same as having bleach blonde hair, heavy smokey eye and insta thot levels of cakeyness

Basically I think if you're going to try super hard with proper clothing, don't go all tryhard with makeup and hair. If you're going to do baggy and relaxed >>62505 then you need to try hard with makeup and hair. Idk tho just my opinion not the law.

- get some waves to hide your shoulders - it really works wonders
- focus on your skinny legs (if you have them) - shorts, short skirts, skinny pants
- avoid any kind of frills/decorations/buff on top but use them on bottom (to give impression that you have curves)

this body type can actually suit many styles if you're skinny.
as for face, can't really help you without seeing. find something that makes you unique and embrace it. I think natural fresh makeup works for everyone as opposed to over contouring and overdrawing that changes you into another person.

I can't commit to a certain style and it's ruining my wardrobe. When I was a young teen I was very interested in a scholarly/vintage look and I bought a lot of gold jewellery, floral skirts, cardigans, white shirts, good wool coats, satchels and brogues (like in the first picture). Then I went through a phase of wanting to look more dark/grunge (like a more toned-down version of gothic clothing) and tried making my entire wardrobe black, buying big chunky boots, silver jewellery with gothic imagery, leather jackets, and dark makeup (like in the second picture). So my current wardrobe is a mismatch of both of those things and because I can't commit to either, I end up just wearing jeans and hoodies most of the time.

Lately I've noticed myself being really drawn towards bohemian fashion and I've bought a couple of pieces of jewellery that have chunky crystals like turquoise and amethyst in them. I'm going somewhere hot this year for summer and once I've lost a few pounds I've planned on getting long, patterned skirts and little camisoles to match the jewellery and sandals I already own.

Ugh what's wrong with me? Is there any way of saving my wardrobe or should I just throw everything out and continue wearing jeans and hoodies since it's obviously what I'm best at?

yeah.. i thought about mentioning not to say this. cause tbh that's not true. imo there is a fine line where it goes from kawaii, to ermmm.., to plain asking for ridicule.

personally, Taylor R has made me think that as long as you still have a young face and haven't had kids yet, 27 is probably a good place. I guess maybe because 27 is officially late 20's.

No. 62669

>>62662

but to be honest, there's quite a difference between the first dress posted and that one there. first dress, while too cutesy for some people, is something a girly girl or a very feminine woman would wear from time to time. you can style it with nice elegant boots and a leather jacket in the same color and no one would bat an eye.

the second one you posted, the blue one, is overly lolita. as such, it can be only successfully paired with lolita items and it will be so over the top. as such, it will look costumey and weird in every occasion except meetups and cons, whatever the wearer's age might be.

i think it's a matter of knowing what you like and how to incorporate it into more practical looks. it's true that everyone can carry different amounts of quirky, but if wearing a saccharine pink dress is what makes you happy, fuck it, just find a way of wearing it. we're all going to die anyways.

If you want to look cute and shouju, it's better to wear tailored, high quality clothes that flatter your body.

Japanese women moved away from OTT hime-kei clothing years ago. Looking ladylike and elegant is more popular nowadays. Frilly dresses, bows and over the knee socks are trying too hard. I used to wear stuff like she's wearing in pic related, now I realise how cheap and stupid it looked.

Very few girls can pull this off, unless you're naturally cute, have delicate facial features and a fairy-like figure. Even on Dakota, I always think it looked tacky. Nobody looks good in $3 pink lacy Chinamart dresses. Ever.

Most girls who imitate her are wearing polyester replicas from pinupclothing (which is ridiculously expensive for the garbage it is).

And I just realised Dita really isn't that pretty, despite being lauded as a beauty for years. She has a shapeless round face, hooded little eyes, no chin, long nose…also her hair colour is very harsh. Good titties tho. One of the best boob jobs I've seen.

As to anons talking about black hair, I think it totally depends on your coloring. Black-brown can be a lot more flattering than stark black or blue black, and things like sumptuous red or a nice rich brunette can look really great with vintage style too.

diagonal cut sleeves or wide sleeves that arent puffy help too. and keep the bottom half more interesting (patterns, embellishments, colors). flares would look cool or wide leg pants. flared skirts. and long hair helps hide the shoulders.

wear whatever the fuck you want obviously too.

also if you're interested try corsetting (NOT WAIST TRAINING)! it doesn't take long to achieve, just diligence. and it's safe unless you suffer from something. the effects dont last forever but your body does get used to being squished into an hourglass shape.

good to know someone else is in the same boat, the only difference Id say w/ me and hayden is that I've got bigger boobs w/out a baby

it kinda sucks I'm into weeb shit as well, so dainty weak shoulders have always been my beauty ideal, but everyone wants what they can't have i guess

hate to question advice, but wouldn't waist training just emphasize my broader shoulders?

I've seen a lot of girls who pull off the 1950's style beautifully, better than Dita to be honest.

But I do agree that it looks way better when you wear genuine vintage pieces. The quality and cut of vintage clothing is far superior to modern clothing and if you invest in a statement piece it can last a lifetime.

Also, try to avoid tacky 50's clothes like poodle skirts (with actual poodles on them), big pearl chokers, cherry earrings etc. You want to look classy, not costumey. A simple cotton lacey blouse with a full satin skirt and some peeptoe heels can look beautiful, even though it's so simple.

And when it comes to hair, don't think you have to go jet black or bleached blonde (which seems to be the go-to for most rockabilly types). Often the most 'authentically' 50's look is to retain your natural colour, or dye it a nice soft natural blonde, or reddish strawberry blonde, like Emma Stone. These colours are so much less harsh and are far more authentically 1950's.

Unless of course, you want to go full Bettie Page or Marilyn, in which case, black or bleach blonde are necessary.

Of course not, I'm not saying you should keep your natural hair if you hate it, I just meant if you're going for a more subtle look, like a cute 50's girl or a more elegant Audrey Hepburn style, try natural shades of colours such as blonde, red and brown, rather than jumping straight into jet black or bleached hair. It's surprising what might suit you. Also it's hard to come back from those colours.

No. 63050

I think the styled bangs are important (subtle curl sweeping them to the side to give a gentler and more natural image while rounding out the face), plus the somewhat voluminous and softly wavy styled ends and even the peachy light color of her hair. Also the popteen gyaru inspired makeup and muted pastel/pale colored clothes, a lot of simple liz lisa items and feminine silhouettes. Her having a very youthful pretty face and thin body help a lot too though.

I personally wouldn't recommend using the henna blocks from Lush, anon. I tried using their noir one to dye my hair black, followed the instructions and not only did my hair feel crunchy and disgusting afterwards, actually heating the product (in a Pyrex jug over boiling water) smelled like shit. Literal shit. It made an absolute mess of the bathroom, stained my skin and basin and iirc it had to be left in for hours. Just go buy a box colour or go to a salon, the trouble is not worth it.

i don't know about indigo but i dyed my hair red using natural henna powder. only thing you do is water it down with warm water to the consistency of runny mud, add some olive oil into it, smear it on your hair like you would with hair dye and wait about 5 hours. it will give you nice, vibrant, natural-ish red hair. other things that claim to be henna AND turn your hair any other color than red-orange contain hair dye and can fry your hair.

also beware, as:

-you will have a hard time washing it out from your hair, it's basically mud.
-it will stain everything, especially your hands and it won't come out for like 3 weeks because it's a vegetable dye.
-you can't bleach out henna from your hair but you can dye a darker color over it.
-you can add brewed black tea in it to make it reddish rather than orange.
-it dries out some people's hair, so rinsing it thoroughly and using moisturising hair treatments is important.

i'm in love with this sort of look, as well as the "boho goth" look mentioned in >>62577 but my figure fucking sucks. i want to be very thin and flat, because i feel like this sort of style works better for that kind of figure.

i'm not a hamplanet, just a regular chubster but i walk everywhere, so my calves, ass, and thighs are stupid thick. once i lose more weight i'm going to start slowly incorporating this kind of clothing into my wardrobe. i'm in berlin right now, and i see so many alt girls with this style, it's really inspiring.

Sounds like a mix of dolls kill/deandri with some free people in darker hues. Or any knock boho brand (or forever21), that stuff is everywhere now.

Start with some staple black pieces. Flowy blouse, bag, shoes, pants, 2 dresses, hat, cardigan ,some jewlery (long necklaces & crystals?). think stevie nicks/american horro story coven vibes. it was big a few years back. The key is things that are easy to move in and are comfortable/breathable. Choose silvers too. And learn2makeup

A lot of the clothing in the photos look like they are meant to be lingerie originally so you can search for "satin camisole" or "satin croptop" Searching low-high on eBay (to get shit from China) I found this on the first page, and it matches the styles in your collage: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Women-Soft-Strap-Sports-Bra-Vests-Cami-Wrap-Chest-Crop-Top-Candy-Color-Underwear-/172743557941?var=&hash=item2838518335:m:mnZwg5vblymjhtwCNpXG0Pg

I like to be able to change my hair colour easily, and my natural hair is blonde so dying it dark with blonde regrowth is not great, so every 6-8 weeks I'd be re-hennaing which meant I had to set aside 6-8 hours to henna my hair.

Pros - The colour is beautiful and fades beautifully. It made my hair feel and look amazing, it felt like it improved the overall texture of my hair.

Cons
- After a few months I was getting tired of the 8 hour ordeal each time I needed to top up (you want to leave it in your hair for hours for the henna to take).

- It is irreversible. You have to wait for it to grow out if you want to change your colour again.

- It is very messy and will stain everything! You need to be careful applying.

- Don't use a box dye or bleach on it. I tried this as I had read the lush henna's had no metallic salts in it so was safe to dye over. However, my hair turned a lovely shade of green/mossy brown meaning there was some sort of horrible chemical reaction. It was a very slow process to go back to my natural blonde colour.

Is crushed velvet trashy/tacky? I have the body for this dress (not any height tho,) but could I wear it without looking terrible? Just contemplating getting it to wear to a friend's wedding.

i think it 100% depends on your styling. i personally think velvet looks better with a bit of an alt/goth/grunge slant to it - it seems hard to make it look classy or expensive with how it's being used in trends right now.

what's the vibe of the wedding? that dress is definitely sexy, which may or may not be appropriate or your goal. a cute shawl or cardigan or cropped jacket might be able to bring that down a notch though. if the wedding is a pristine white church thing, probably better to go with something more conservative. if it's more relaxed, this could be cute.

The wedding is a church thing, but I was definitely thinking of wearing a jean jacket or sheer scarf/shawl with it. But also, the website stated the model is 5'7" and I'm 5'2", so I think it'll be a lot longer on me, maybe even almost hitting my ankles.

hmmm i think if it was at least mid-calf length and you had something over it, it's a bit dramatic but totally workable. a jacket/shawl in a matte finish fabric and minimalistic accessories would tone it down too, i think.

i actually think that style is hard to pull off, and even on that model i hate it. it just never looks good. you can find way, way nicer things to wear to someone's wedding. and jean jacket and shawl with that?? mid calf length? what the hell? i don't know what kind of person/dresser you are, but by that description i'm imagining you're 17 or something. try ASOS petites, they even have a wedding section, wear something interesting and cool but classy if you have a great figure
