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:
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.
Hello again! I still am terrible at updating this. But oh well. At least I’m (sort of) trying?
I still haven’t gotten around to altering that lovely Innocent World JSK I recently bought. I’m thinking I may just sell it- its quite short on me anyway, and I think it would look silly with an underskirt. Oh well. But in light of that disappointment, I’m considering another foray into the trials and tribulations of buying brand as a plus size lolita. With this:
Innocent World’s new Germaine One Piece. The measurements are incredibly promising- they give quite a bit of wiggle room for someone with an 85cm waist and 100cm bust. I’m a lot less afraid that a similar effect will happen with this dress because of the way the shoulders are cut. And its also quite long. It seems like a perfect basic lolita piece as well. As someone who has been loving the fashion for so long I barely have what anyone would consider a lolita wardrobe. I guess I’ll see if I can pull together the money to get this dress. :)
Besides lusting after pretty rufflies? Life has been very uneventful. It is strange being a 4th quarter senior. It feels like nothing matters anymore. Just free time and time with the boyfriend. At least this gives me more time to (hopefully) post on this blog!
