Four reasons why I love Fairy-kei the best!

(This was taken from my tumblr. Thought it would be a nice idea to post it here as well.)

- The style is quite versatile. You can tone down the pastels or wear nothing but pastels! You can also wear other cute colors with it like black/white, hot pink and other neon colors, and it can still look good. 
- There isn’t some bullshit strict set of “rules” that Fairy girls must follow. I think this is mostly because the style is quite general. The only “rule” I can think of isn’t even a rule, but rather what determines the style itself - pastel colors.
- The style is pretty affordable. Don’t have cash to splurge on Spank! or Nile Perch? You can still find super cute things at the mall or in secondhand/thrift shops! If you look around it is quite easy to build a Fairy wardrobe. 
- The Fairy-kei community is very friendly. I’ve never seen any drama over Fairy style as of yet (though it might be because the style just isn’t as popular, thus less people, thus less of an amount of “bad eggs”). I am thankful for this.

Feel free to comment on why you like Fairy-kei, or if you agree or not! :3

★ミ tips for fairy-kei beginners! ★ミ

(This can also apply to popkei/spank! beginners as well!)

Most of these things are what I learned as a beginner, and I hope they help all of you cuties out there who are just getting into the fashion, or might be having trouble and looking for a few pointers. 

★ミ Thrift and secondhand shopping is really great for those who don't feel like spending big on brands like Nile Perch or ManiaQ. Almost every time I've been to the local thrift store I have found at LEAST one thing that was pastel, 80's and/or cute. Online secondhand shopping like eBay and through LJ can be pretty cheap as well.

★ミ Start out slow! As you build up your wardrobe, don't be in too much a hurry to wear every pastel item you can. Ease into it and have fun mix-n-matching your coords until you find your style. 

★ミ Don't be afraid to browse your typical mall retailers like Claire's and Forever21 for cute fairy-kei-able finds!  You might be surprised what you'll find. 

If I think of more tips, I shall edit this post later on.
 Feel free to comment on what your favorite thing about fairy-kei or spank! style is, and if you have any other tips I could add to this post, feel free to share them as well!
