Is it worth even trying to get into larme if I have an uncute face, or should I just give up?

Depends on how uncute, female Danny Devito or average white girl but with a long face? I feel like larme is the most forgiving of that short of J-goth or super gothic lolita. So long as you get the make up, hair, and overall feel right you should be fine.

Try looking up Petite Meller. She's not traditionally cute face wise, but she isn't even going for larme and she still gives off a similar feeling in a lot of her pics.

A lot of her pics are boderline nsfw and extremely the "other lolita" just as a warning. I can't remember which but a larme brand put out a t-shirt with her name. Also her music is pretty nice imo.
>>
>>9651479
White girl with shitty Slav peasant genes. I'll look up Petite Meller, thanks.
>>
>>9651485

It seems all the white girls who are into jfash always have the same long face... anyone noticed this?
>>
>>9652158
Lots of white girls have long faces which is normal in Western fashion, but looks out of place in jfashion because they're compared to Asians instead of other white girls.
>>
>>9652158
This isn't true at all really? I have a short heart shaped face.
>>
>>9651483
I think it was Katie?

I just received Larme 30 and with a quick look I failed to spot Monaca Nishi on it. She isn't even in the anniversary group picture although she is (was?) one of the most featured models. What is going on, did she leave Larme?

I don't have Larme 29 so I don't know if she still appeared there or not...
>>
Do you think having pale skin is important to the larme aesthetic?
>>
>>9652158
It's more like J-Fashion accentuates long faces. Blunt bangs, the makeup, bigass head accessories, lots of stuff in general going on around the head. It's not forgiving but that doesn't matter if you're having fun.
>>
>>9654834
I think it helps,especially with the dreamier stylings, but having nice skin of any color is most important.
>>
>>9654834

What like being white is important anon? Pfft. It depends how you style yourself and looking cute more than skin colour. As usual whites get the upper hand ugh
>>
What's so special about larme that it needs it's own category? It's just feminine normie fashion with drunk blush makeup.

I don't think she was there either, no. I think she stopped producing Fallin and has now moved to Fiction Tokyo which is super similar style wise but the designs are very meh.

>>9655095
It's a magazine. It'd be like making a kera thread and commenting "but there's already aomoji kei". Larme magazine made their styling a big part of their marketing.

Tell that to the "poo doll" dress.

Considering most of the models are Japanese I'm going to consider this racebait. That anon too.

>>9655157
Pale =/= not being African black
The OP image >>9650769 has a "normal" skincolor. >>9650771 and >>9655104
somewhat as well.

Unsurprisingly purely Japanese fashions suit Japanese people first, with them as their only concern and priority other than extremely rare examples. Exactly like how even with AP making their dresses very wide now in the 2000s fattychans anyone above 5'4 had an actual reason to complain. Make up is the same as any other kind, adjust to skin tone, shade, and face shape.

The only shade I can see it being impossible for is extremely dark shades where less than three brands have foundation in your shade. Otherwise play around with it and you'll look cute and accurate enough eventually. There was a really cute half-black model for a Japanese brand. I'm horrible with names though t.bh. I'm sure another anon will remember or have pics.

Not racebait. I never mentioned white people, just pale skin.

Racebait against darker skin anons, not white people. I guess it's like when anons say flat but mean a c-cup or fat for 120lbs. I'm not used to hearing anything but Kat Von D's lightest shade and up. I haven't seen any Japanese models that are that pale even with filters that it'd be a question I thought anyone would ask seriously. They all look fairly normal for their ethnicity to me.

>>9655454
No I actually haven't seen that. She had a really retro vibe, down to victory rolls I think. And in saying that I figured it was probably Katie and luckily enough it was. Bless google for understanding "black model Katie Japan."

I wish she would do more modelling because she's literally stunning. Change from the typical blue eyed blonde gaijin models desu.

>fat for 120lbs
To be fair, that is fat when talking about Jfash since the clothing is designed for girls 85-105lbs.

Anyone have cute boot recommendations? Preferably something with grip to the sole.
Winter is almost here, and I'd like to have a pair of boots that don't clash with my outfits.
>>
>>9659803
Can you be more specific? What length? Material? Color?
>>
>>9660590
Preferably black and PU or leather.
I'm open to anything from ankle booties to mid-calf.
I have a nice pair of chelsea boots and proper winter boots, but I'm looking for something girlier and more suitable to larme/jfashion.

I have a couple of boots that I was looking at, all are off brand but I don't know what is avaibale in your area. I ended up buying whats in the pic, as they're nice and simple, also good for a few different styles. I had my local shoe fixer put on grips for wet winter weather

Definitely. I'm hoping that people are just busy because of school around this time of year but it could be that there's not much new large content for real. I feel like the usual western people haven't posted outfits in a while.
>>
>>9662290
And then people are busy with holidays, then with exams, then with vacation... People are just not that interested in Larme anymore
>>
>>9662290
>>9662525

I feel like there's much more activity on insta than there is in this thread/the fb group
>>
>>9662541
I think it will pick up once the weather gets cooler.
>>
>>9662541

Even jfashion is turning more and more normie nowadays... all of it. I think people just want to look more mature and "normal" these days. Plus Larme seems to only give people the idea its only the fetish style which screams Larme. Most of the models in the magazine are changing their personal style rapidly. Also a lot of the big western Larme fans - kinda dropped the style. I think if it wasn't for Risa then Larme would have not done as wel as it has. She literally looks like a little doll and Japanese automatically squeal over shit like that. No wonder the magazine never got rid of her... she brought in the money. Hence now why shes gone all high fashion and splurging out on big designer brands - her old dolly style is in the shambles now.
>>
>>9664474
Normie fashion has also become a lot more Larme. Now I'm not saying western stores copied Larme or anything, but when I got into Larme it was a lot more novel and you really couldn't shop offbrand for it very well. I remember a few anons in the early threads attempting and it was a little cringeworthy. Now you have stores stocking off the shoulder tops, lace up details, ruffles, etc so while it's a lot more accessible, it's also a lot less "special." And I think a lot of people who are into jfashion like it because they "want to be different." Now that it's been coopted by the mainstream it's not cool anymore... or something. On top of that a lot of the Japanese brands are really stagnating and not putting out anything really new so there's not much to aspire to there either.

For me I've just kind of gotten tired of being part of the community and knitpicking all the makeup and hair and stuff so I mostly wear it for myself and don't really post my outfits anymore despite the fact that I still wear primarily Larme brands in my everyday life.
