So, do you guys recall wayway back when I had put my Innocent World Antique Tartan skirt up for sale because it didn’t fit? Well, it never sold, so on a lark I tried it on today after about a month’s worth of judo and healthy eating… and guess what fits and flatters me like a dream now? 8D
Now I have the fun task of figuring out how to style it, I’m so pleased oh my gosh.
BABY’S new print: Tea Time Nostalgia
shit i really love this, it has a cool dolly-kei vibe going on ;-;
I just made a strangled noise of pure want in the back of my throat.
Surface Spell- Vanilla Ice Cream High Waisted JSK
I’m really, really close to buying Alice and the Pirates’ Wicked Queen’s Poison Cellar JSK II, in the greenxbrown colorway of course. I don’t care a whit about Snow White, but I really love this print- it’s a green book print, but even better, it includes scientific devices. Sure, it’s meant to be a nod to alchemy over science, I’d wager, but since alchemy is a forerunner of modern science, I don’t mind that at all.
It’d be my first border print dress. Hell, it’d be my first print of this nature dress! I’d probably coord it with a paler green blouse, brown tights, green ankle boots, and maybe a flower crown that draws on the apple and rosebud wreath-like pattern… plus a little gold telescope necklace I have.
We’ll see if I break and buy it, I’m sorely tempted. XD
Metamorphose Frame Swan Pinafore JSK, Shirring JSK, and Medium Skirt
This is another case of “okay I think I really like this?”, which Meta seems to particularly excel at. I do have a major weakness for swan motifs (due to Swan Lake, naturally), and I really love the shades of green they chose to use here. I dig green and gold as a combination for a plethora of reasons, and I think this utilizes that combination well.
The thing that trips me up is the cuts of the JSKs, I think I love them both, but there’s just so much possibility for bad things. I’m willing to chalk that up to bad stock photos, though, because the one worn image of the pinafore JSK seen on the item page is actually really cute. In fact the more I look at it, the more I’m pretty confident I really, really love it.
I absolutely do not want to talk about the OP though, god save its soul. And I normally like those huge sleeves!
Rest In Peace, Katzixx.
I love you so much, you’re a inspiration for me, I just can’t realize that you’ve gone…
I just learned of this tonight from one of my followers and I’m having such a hard time believing it. It’s so bizarre that we’ve had two amazing members of the Lolita community pass so close together. This is so sad to me especially because she was one of my Lolita idols. Her coords are always so gorgeous and I’ve reblogged them to the inspiration tag so many times (I actually just reblogged one yesterday without knowing about this). I’m so sad that I was never able to get to know her.
Just a reminder that my fashion showcase is going to be THIS COMING SATURDAY, July 27th, from 6-11PM at Trinity Nightclub. The runway portion begins around 9PM, but I will have a booth with accessories and there are a lot of amazing artists to check out! Street parking is free after 7PM, and tickets are only $10 if you purchase them in advance VIA THIS LINK.
Please come out to support my first big fashion event in Seattle! If you can’t make it, please reblog and tell your friends. :)
That Peter Pan collar JSK!! *_*
If I have any followers in the Seattle area, check this out! Her designs are fantastic and some of my absolute favorites- I adore the one skirt I already have of hers, and have on in the works. :D (And now that I know about that peter pan JSK… XD)
