Girls, romanticize yourselves. You are a queen. You are a warrior. You are an enchantress. You are a mermaid. You are a goddess. You are all of these things and more, you are the stuff of fairytales.
Women, traumatize others. You are a dragon. You are a wolf. You are a bump in the night. You are the last thing they see in the darkness. You are all of these things and more, you are the heart of their fucking nightmares.
What Harajuku Girls Look Like These DaysNew video about modern Japanese decorafashion by Refinery29! We helped to connect the producers with the Harajuku kids for this video. I’m very happy that they treat the subculture - and the people in it - with respect. We never know how things will turn out when we connect foreign media to Harajuku subcultures, but this one is well done. Please check out the video!
This honestly was such a good watch! It is always a bit scary sometimes when people do informational pieces on fashions like decora because you worry how they are going to perceive it but I can honestly say this was a good piece. It was so nice to see how the japanese decora cuties feel about their fashion and it was also cool that they compared it to how decora originally looked when it began. I guess Im just so glad that decora is a fashion thats still alive and kicking (even if its just in small groups) because its a fashion that makes me so extraordinarily happy.
A great watch! Brought me back to the FRUiTS livejournal days <3

I need that phone case more than I would care to admit
My femininity is weaponised. It is soft, but sharp. I have embraced it fully, because to do otherwise would be doing myself a disservice. When I dress and look the way I do, it is specific and full of thought. It says I decide the terms on which you may approach me. It gives me the upper hand in a way that I as a woman in public am so rarely afforded. The current social climate we live in fascinates me because it simultaneously encourages and discourages braise and femininity. Women who choose not to engage in traditionally feminine acts such as hair removal, makeup and certain styles of clothing are punished for it in micro-aggressive ways. The odds are stacked against them from making friends to landing jobs. Women who choose not to or can’t have children are seen as selfish. Women who don’t marry or marry non male-indentifying individuals are seen as confused. And in the same way, on the other end of the spectrum, women who feel best suited to traditionally feminine roles such as ‘stay at home mom’ or ‘caretakers’ are looked down upon by certain feminist schools of thought as to have ‘bought in’. The shaving of legs; the application of body shapers and heels to create a specific look; the art of makeup and hair is seen as frivolous and vain by all genders. So; we’re constantly fighting to find that safe balance – pretty but not too pretty; not so pretty as to look like we tried. Smart, but not too smart; not so smart as to intimidate others. Strong, but not so strong as to appear to need no companionship. Fashion is important and specifically womens’ fashion. When I see other people in untraditional garb, I can’t help but smile at them. Through their actions, they create a little more room - room for me, room for others to feel free to express themselves with more freedom and safety; and I hope that what I do can make space for others to have a little more room too. Someone once told me that revolution comes from the inside, and I didn’t want to believe them but I think it’s true. After all, all it took was the prick of a needle on a spinning wheel - a traditional symbol of feminine labour and creativity - to put a whole kingdom to sleep.
