My fellow oldschool gal Rae told me she was looking for some inspo for the fall! Of course I had to do my job as an oldschool gal to provide. It's so different from how most recognize gal today. The make is not as heavy but there are some versions that were def OTT (i.e. manba and yamanba). And most of the time hair was just bleached with a few accessories.
These OG gals showed us that it wasn't about getting into the hottest trends that magazines told them to get. They were the ones dictating which trends were hot with the magazines following. They seemed so carefree and did whatever made them happy and stand out from the norm society. They showed us that gal is not only make with droop. It's not about owning brand. It's not about abiding by rules (it's not about making up labels and rules either). It's about being yourself even if the world hates you. Because the only one that can control what makes you happy is yourself. Screw everyone else.
Speaking of happiness, I have a decent collection of old school gal magazines that have all sorts of inspo. So Rae-chan, this is for you!
