July Round Up
(I’ve decided to do a link/tutorial/info round-up monthly. Its a good way for me to justify my link hoarding and share with others, as well as motivate me to post! Anyway… )
I’m currently lusting after Baby’s “Fragrant Rose Memories” JSK in Noir. What an absolutely gorgeous print; 100% my style. I really ought to keep better track of brands so things like this don’t slip under my radar. Maybe I’ll treat myself after this next summer paycheck!
I’ve vowed to update my inspiration Tumblr more often, and include much more lolita than it has lately! Check it out.
If you’re a lolita seamstress, Shabby Fabrics is the place to go! Their Antique Flower collection is stunning for classic, gothic, and sweet alike, and I love some of the riskier fabric ideas for dresses. A simple JSK in this pretty black/purple combination would be lovely!
I have lately been more and more fascinated with puerh tea. It has a ton of benefits, a strong flavor, and quite easy to find online. My favorite puerh flavor is peach, and this one has the added benefit of being “Power Slimming.” There are also some good “fruit-enhanced” varieties (read – sweet without adding sweetener), like apple/strawberry/mint. Yum.
A sweet and simple bow tutorial. These are adorable, and very easy to add a pin/clip back to. A fun and quick craft for a lazy summer afternoon.
