HIIIII I’m your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman Offbrand Otome blog runner :> I don’t always have the best attention span when it comes to keeping things updated so I was wondering if anybody else maybe wanted to help mod the blog and post things?? uvu Just leave a message in the ask box if you’re interested <3
Otome-kei (also known as cute-kei and ojousama-kei) is a feminine Japanese street style that emulates the feeling of late 50’s-60’s clothing, often with quirky-cute prints and motifs. Lately in North America it’s becoming popular as a more casual, wearable on a daily basis look for those interested in lolita, as many of the dresses share a similar silhouette and it’s very modest and cute.
Some popular Japanese fashion brands that sell otome-kei clothing are MILK, Emily Temple Cute, and Jane Marple, but shopping overseas can be rather expensive, especially if you’d like to build an entire wardrobe with the otome aesthetic.
Offbrand Otome-kei's goal is to provide inspiration for the girls out there who love otome but can't afford to shop overseas, the ones who'd like to pad their wardrobe with some less expensive options, want to sew or knit their own otome-esque items, and a bunch of other things!
