Lack of Updates

Sorry for the lack of updates! My job has kept me insanely busy the past few days.  I have a few new photos of some cords, and a makeup tutorial to post so there will be updates soon (as tomorrow and Thursday are my days off. ) So yeah!

I got in my Meta JSK yesterday. It's even cuter in person. I was going to wear it into work today, however it looks really awkward over my all of my blouses.  So I'm gonna have to go bolero hunting this weekend, because I really want to wear it! It's weird looking because of the straps, there are 4 different straps that you can tie together to make different looks. 

I also got in two blouses yesterday, but sadly they don't fit (by A LOT.) Which I'm pretty mad about. The seller said they would fit a 98 cm bust. I have a 92cm bust, so you'd think they'd fit fine. Nope.  So now I'm stuck with two blouses that don't fit .  Probably gonna sell them.

I'm still waiting for my Mary in the Sky with Candies to arrive. I can't wait for it! asdljf;aksg.

I will have a picture post later of my dress. Hopefully the above JSK arrives so I can take a picture of that too!

Lolita in Secret challenged me; Lolita Pet Peeves!

I've been challenged by Lolita in secret to list my top 5 Lolita Pet Peeves.

1. Stripped tights.  I hate these with most lolita coordinates.  Stripped socks don't bother me, but it's the tights. I a lot of times it just seems to cheapen an outfit to me. Reminding me of a mall goth. Haha. I have seen them pulled off well. But most of the time, just no!

2. Price of used dresses.  I know a lot of prints are super rare and stuff. But really sometimes some of these dresses have had 5+ different owners and cost $400+ . Just because something is 'rare' doesn't mean you should freaking scalp on prices.

3. Petticoats. Don't get me wrong I love my petticoats, but they are quite bothersome when sitting down. I'm always trying to come up with a new way to sit without deflating the back of my dress, or having my chest engulfed with poof when I sit down.

4. Mini top hats. Same thing with striped tights. Most of the time it's not pulled off well, looks funky.

5.  Receiving dirty/smelly clothes when buying of the sales comm.  There have been a few times when i have bought something of egl sales and the seller doesn't bother to clean the article before sending it out. Really I just spend $200 on a JSK I don't want to smell funk and have mysterious white stains on it.

Outfit Post

I'm just bumming around the house doing chores on this rainy day. So I'm not wearing anything too fancy. Just a JSK from Bodyline (that I won't care if it gets a little dusty haha.) and a cardigan. Real casual.

Headshot included because face looked like poo in outfit shot. Durpy duck face in headshot, activated!

Lolita and Rain Coats

It has been an unusually rainy day for Las Vegas.  It figures the one day I want to go out for a walk, it's raining cats and dogs. Pifff.  So It got me to thinking, it would be super cute if there was a raincoat for lolitas. Imagine it, Angelic Pretty put out one of those almost iconic yellow PVC raincoats with rainbows and unicorns spewing all over it. Or perhaps Baby, The Stars Shine Bright, making a light pink raincoat with little bunny ears on the hood, and heart shaped pockets.

So I decided it would be fun to go on google and see if I could find a loli-able raincoat. Of course the only cute rain coats I was able to track down are made for kids(and they aren't exactly zomg rorita. but cute nonetheless):

Both available from DLL Rainwear

I only found one raincoat that might be able to accommodate a petticoat, but it was pretty ugly, and would require a ton of modification to look remotely lolita.

On another completely unrelated topic.I find it quite amusing that when I play starcraft II I pick the most ugly and unloli of all the races, zerg.

Over 9000 hours in photoshop guyz ♥.

A Meme

 I stole this meme from Lolita in Secret. I thought it would be fun, and a way to get to know me better? Or at least my tastes in lolita.


What colours can be found in your Lolita closet?
Black, Pink, Sax

What is your favourite colour with Lolita?
Black, it goes with just about everything, and is flattering.

What is your least favourite colour in Lolita?
Yellow. It doesn't look right on me, so thats why I don't like it XD.

Which uncommon colour do you want to try out?
Mint! It'd be such a change for me. I'm iffy to try it because I don't think it would be a flattering colour on me.


Are you more a Onepiece, Jumperskirt or a Skirt person?
I own mostly JSKs, because they are very versitile, espically in summer. But I like all of them.

Which cut do you like the best?
I love empire waists.

Print or no Print?
I love prints, however a lot of prints don't really look flattering on me. I really like border prints.


What is your favourite style in Lolita?
Probably Gothic.
Which style do you wear regularly?
Gothic, Classic, Sweet
Which style you want to try out?
Something OTT sweet, and deffo guro.

Which style you never want to try out/wear again?
Probably Shiro, it wouldn't be flattering on me. XD


Brands yes or no and why?
I like brand, I own several brand pieces, however I don't consider myself a brand whore. If I like a piece I will buy it, reguardless of who makes it.

Which brand is your favourite?
Moi-Meme-Moitie. However it's hard for me to fit into a lot of their pieces due to my larger bust. *shakes fist*  I also love Victorian Maiden and Baby.

Which is your least favourite brand?
I really don't have a least favorite brand. I like different pieces from just about all brands.

Ever had a good/bad experience with brand?
I've had only good experience with brand. Only bad is missing out on a reserve here or there.

Will this experience encourage/stop you from buying brand?

Did you ever got surprised by a piece of Lolita?
My first brand dress amazed me. Back in the day, I always heard that the quality was far superior, ect. It was just beyond my wildest dreams.

Did you ever got disappointed by a piece of Lolita?
Things that you like about Lolita?
The way it makes me feel. I just feel pretty and like a princess in it. I also love reactions I get, both the good and bad. Little girls are the best. "Mommy is she a princess?" Kyahhh ♥

Things that you dislike on Lolita?
Probably the sexual connotations people think of when they hear the name, or that people think it's a fettish "age-play" type thing. I dress in lolita because it makes me happy.

Do you have a Lolita fashion idol, if 'yes' who is it?
I don't really have one right now, but back in the day it was Mana.

Does Lolita affect your every day life?
Yes. I always think about coords. Or what dress I should save up for next. But it's nothing negitive. I'm not like some girls (no offense) who can't control their spending and go into debt because of it.

Do you buy Lolita related things, like cute looking furniture?
I don't go out of my way to, but I end up because I'm attracted to that aestetic. If I like it I buy it, lolita or not.

Do you read/buy the Gothic Lolita Bible?
I look at scans, I can't read much Japanese but pictures are nice :D.

How to you describe your fashion style to others that don´t know about Lolita?
I don't go out of my way to inform the masses so to say. But when I wear it I tend to get questions. I don't start off saying it's called lolita.(because of the sexual connotations) I say it's a fashion ispired by the Rococo and Victorian Era. I explain that it's not about being sexy, but feeling good on the inside.

Is there something you want to say to your fellow Lolitas?
Don't hate on replicas? Haha there has been a lot of drama over replicas lately, and really? If you don't like it don't buy it. Simple as that. Don't get me wrong I love my burando, but if it's a print that is sold out, or fits me wonky and I can find a replica that fits/ whatever cool. XD

This is going to be the next dress I purchase :3.  I'm super excited!  It's absolutely stunning. Hopefully it won't sell out before I get my first paycheck from the new job.
