Too Sweet For Rock n' Roll: Decofrill Accessories Feature & Giveaway!

Hello again, guys and dolls!
Today's Too Sweet for Rock n' Roll is of a special character aswell. Not only is the featured shop and the girl behind it is quite unique and once again different from all previously featured ladies and their work... As she is responsible for my website's logo and banner, and has been a close friend for a long time. We've shared the love for different styles since we met, but she has since taught me a lot about eastern street styles, make up and hair... I was a rockin tomboy, even a glam girl in my best days before we met in 2007 if you can believe it! And she is now bringing her knowlege of eastern trends, and love of all things toothachingly sweet to Portugal and the world through the newly-founded Decofrill. Now you'll have to read on to find out more..! And, of course, even be rewarded.
Here we are just close to a year ago in our Lolita frolics, representing EGL Portugal in another photoshoot for a national newspaper.

You founded Decofrill as an alternative shop, a concept and an online business. Would you please share a bit about its birth and growth?
Decofrill is an idea that I had for some time now. Due to my trips to Japan, my love for this kind of beautiful decoration and accessories have been growing since 2006. So finally this year (2010) I've decided that it was the right time to start my own online business, and provide people outside Japan with this cuteness overload. For now everything is going really well, I've actually received an invitation from a PR to have Decofrill on an exhibit in London ! I'm really exited!

What does owning, managing and representing your own alternative shop & business consist on?
Well, first of all I always try to combine quality with good prices, so I do a lot of research trying to find the materials that allow me to have beautiful deco and accessories that everyone can buy. Also it takes a lot of my time making decofrill.pt.vu always updated as well as our blog and facebook. And of course making the actual accessories and decos, which can be, sometimes, a really hard and looong task.

How do you feel about the alternative market today, regarding the growth of the internet?
Since I live in Portugal, I don't have access to a lot of physical alternative shops. I think it was about time to make this kind of products available to everyone, so I hope this kind of online business continues to grow and more and different products appear in time.

Name your top five aestethic influences/idols and tell us why.
Vivien Westwood

I absolutly love her concepts and style. She is, for me, one of the most talented women in the fashion industry and is not afraid of being different.

Mana
This man changed my life. He is really not an idol for me or a model but it was because of his band and style that I ended up doing so many things and meeting so many beautiful people... <3









Anna Tsuchiya
For me she has the perfect style (these days not so much but still...) , she's a really funny person and a great singer!


Overall Harajuku's people
They influence my style, my hair and even the place it self made change the way I thought about some things it's my favorit place in the world.

Random people in the street
My style is really a big mix of many many things. It really depends on my mood, if its sunny or cloudy, if I'm in a big city or in a small village. As a student I remember spending hours looking at the crowds in my school selecting clothes and accessories from different people. I still do this today!

Please share a picture of your daily glamour/everyday wear and describe it!
This was for a paper interview as a Lolita form Portugal. I was wearing one of my favourite Lolita styles : Punk. I was wearing a pink tartan dress, a matching socks and cardigan with some cute skulls.
[Random Fact: The socks and cardigan are actually mine! I was in the shoot too and it rocked. Check out the Portuguese Lolita Community we've been moderating together with Joana from Améthyste  for the last two years at http://www.eglportugal.pt.vu ]

What do you fancy the most about being Miss Decofrill?
I love people's reaction and to talk with girls from all over the world <3

Do you have a wisdom cupcake for the Sailors and Sailorettes reading?
Yesh I do! Never give up being yourself; always follow your dreams; always be stylish! <3
