Lolita OOTD - Holiday Red

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Oh - instead of winter blues I'm suffering from the holiday red. And no, it's not period related.
Actually, just kidding, I don't really care about holidays at all, but this outfit did kind of turn out festive for being an outfit of mine!

There are a lot of dresses in my closet that I've never worn, partially because I feel like the rest of my closet doesn't suit it, and today I made an outfit with one of those dresses. It feels like it could be a bit more balanced, but I don't have a lot of colors to play with so I did my best :) I kind of want a cute beret to go with this dress!

Okay maybe I've got a bit the winter blues...

And I definitely need more lolita shoes! But it's been quite difficult to find suitable shoes, that are not only pretty, but also nice quality, comfortable and affordable. I had custom orders from Antainna a couple times before, but they always kind of disappoint. Even if you get them to make the shoes in leather, the designs feel kind of off. But we'll see what the future brings, maybe a new shoe brand? ;)

The wig is a sample wig, soon to appear on my wig shop Lockshop Wigs, it's from the Pure line, which is more natural and very suitable for daily wear. When I got it, I first wasn't sure about the style, but there is a very limited amount of cute shorter wigs and most of this length are simple bobs. The waves in this kind of give it a less polished and more playful feel, making it 100% less boring too! I can't wait to stock it :3

Lolita OOTD - Golden Rose

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

I know, it's been forever, but I decided to revive my blog again because as usual, I have the biggest plans ever! I wanted a place where I can keep proper track of outfits etcetera, and quite frankly, Tumblr is terrible for that!

I've been meaning to wear lolita at least once a week, a bit because I've collected so much beautiful dresses that need to be worn, but also because I feel good when wearing lolita and taking pretty pictures! However it's easier said than done, it always takes forever for me to get ready and mostly it feels like it's too much effort to get up an do it. Doing my best to get out of this rut though!
Because I didn't wear lolita last Sunday, I wore it today - an ivory and gold outfit - I wish I had golden shoes, but hey maybe in the future!

I tried my best to take a clear picture of the make-up, no color effects.
Most of the detailing hardly shows up, I added gold dots and highlighted various parts
of my face with a super shimmery gold. 

I know halos and other religious inspired headwear is the trend in lolita fashion right now,
and because I feel it's kind of overused at the moment I was a bit hesistant to wear the
headband, but I didn't have a lot of gold toned headwear and I wanted to add something to balance it out! I actually bought it quite a while ago, it's made by Maroonsparrow, and I never had the chance to wear it with anything. I decided to cover it up with the flowers a bit, so that there are only hints of it, and that it doesn't overtake the outfit. I went for a partial up-do with my wig - it's Mermaid Dust -

Outfit rundown:
JSK: Angelic Pretty
Blouse: Juliette et Justine
Tights: Juliette et Justine
Bag: Baroque

Well, that was my outfit for now! I feel like I want to do lighter coords more often, and I want to add gold to ALL the things! But first I'm going to take it a bit easier when it comes to purchases :)
