Phew! I hadn’t been able to post for so long with so much going on in-world and in RL. >.< But today, I was determined to make a post since I had taken the pics some time ago but never had the time to edit the pics nor to post.
I wanted to introduce a really fun and creative brand from Japan called Yomeshoujo. I am not sure what the name means because “yome” means “wife or better half” and “shoujo” means “maiden or girl“. So maybe it means “a very young wife” or “girly wife“? At least that’s what it literally means.
Anyway, I wasn’t going to make a post about its name. I wanted to introduce this brand because it is a very different type store from any Japanese brand you might know nor is it similar to any non-Japanese brand. It is indeed a store with very unique but lovely outfits that are really fun to style. I have pics for two outfits so I will make two posts about Yomeshoujo in a row.
The first one is called AnLi. The silhouette and shape of the outfit is very unique but so are the colours used and I just love the creativity of designer, youki Cioc. youki’s designs are just so colourful and the moment you tp to her store and things start to rez, you will be surprised to see the explosion of colours that somehow create a very unique “youki world”.
I accessorized this fun outfit with earrings and matching prim nails I got from Candy Nail. These are not on sale in vendor but they were prizes for gacha gacha, which are like bubble gum vending machines but instead of bubble gum, they contain plastic balls with small items inside. There are pretty big in RL Japan too! At Candy Nail, there were two gacha machines, one for earrings and one for prim nails.
The prices are usually quite low but the catch is that you can’t choose which item you will get. In other words, in this case, there were seven colours and one secret colour each for both the earring gacha and the prim nails gacha. So if you tried to get matching colours, you might end up with lots of blue earrings or red nails, for example. But I must say, it was fun and the cute candy coloured earrings and prim nails were worth trying my luck with a little investment.
The eighth secret colour, by the way, was a multi-coloured pair of earrings and prim nails! Too cute!
