A Quick Update About What’s Coming Up!

I’m currently planning a lot of really exciting things for this blog (which I am also planning to post to more!) including:

1. A “Building My Wardrobe” series about creating my own lolita wardrobe. What works for me and what might for you too.
2. Actually keeping an updated “Closet” page for my reference and the curiosity of others.
3. More fashion/theme related posts, as well as shopping tips.
4. A give-a-way!

I’m really excited to actually give this blog a fighting chance and update it. I actually somehow have a bit more free time in college!

If you have any suggestions/questions/comments about any of this feel free to comment on this post or send me an email. (leatherlaceandarsenic@gmail.com)


My Very First Outfit Pic, Macarons Galore, and a Lady Sloth Commission

Well, here it goes!


Top: Offbrand (Forever 21)
Skirt: Innocent World Replica (Dream of Lolita on QutieLand)
Necklace: Disney Couture

I realize I look terribly awkward and its a weirdly-lit phone picture, but I’m really happy with my outfit! I felt gorgeous all day.  And I’m learning to embrace my lolita side instead of putting it on a shelf; I deserve to feel pretty and wear whatever the hell I want!

Here’s a pic of my (simple) makeup:

But on to more interesting things! I found a bakery in my area that makes macarons, so I bought a box to share with my boyfriend.


They’re gorgeous aren’t they? The green was pistachio, purple was lavender, orange was passion fruit, and the yellow was lemon. I have a thing about lavender flavoring and these were absolutely perfect and did not take on that “soapy” flavor at all. A++

Inspired by my rekindled love for macarons, I chanced upon a book at Anthropologie:


The recipes in this book are absolutely mouth-watering. Red velvet, lemon poppy seed, sesame, green tea, grapefruit, pumpkin… I want to bake them all before I head off to college!

And finally, some news that’s mostly exciting to me. I just commissioned a Lady Sloth Silk Cherubins JSK (which she is still taking commissions for on LJ!). I’m especially excited because its completely custom-sized, and she did not charge extra for a larger size/longer length. I’m getting the full-fabric version (pictured below) with added shirring, and I plan on doing a full review when I receive it. All I can say for now is that Lady Sloth was very kind and willing/quick to communicate, and I have no doubts that my JSK will be lovely.

Thanks for reading! I hope everyone is having a lovely end to their summer.
