From last week.
Had a nice day reading at the library today! I ended up reading about art history. I want to read all their books on fashion history, but the library is too big and I got lost.
I like cloth
I took a photo of me hanging out in my room again. I liked it better like this. I did some sewing today so that was fun. :D
It's getting cold...
Hung out with my new friend yesterday ^__^
Met up with an old friend today. It was nice... After that it rained from all directions! Luckily my umbrella fits in that bag. Clothes are all home made except for the bolero which is BTSSB... :D
I'm obsessed with that blue fuzzy vest. You can't see but there are wings on the socks...
I also finally bought some Meta socks so I'm pretty stoked about that haha.
By the way, I'm really tired of almost falling over in those white sandals so I guess I'll reluctantly have to stop wearing them. I love them but there's basically only a piece of string holding your feet in place.
I've felt like I was able to wear the clothes I wanted to a lot recently, but I'm feeling dissatisfied with my way of styling things, so here's a few photos of outfits that I liked!
I look scary haha
After my last post I was sorting through my crafting books and came across these pages with basic instructions for bobbin lace. I didn't even realise I had it! I think I got this book from a friend.
I'd like to try it out, but I'm sure it's difficult.
More summer outfits... Here's a simple one. I got several compliments for some reason (not that I mind).
This looks kinda bad on the photo... But this is one of my favourite styles of Lolita! I'll have to take a better picture some other time. I also made the weird decision of wearing long sleeves on a hot day, I just really like these sleeves. They're not the worst for when it's hot, since they're airy.
I have only worn Lolita very casually lately, so for a while I didn't have any photos I wanted to post. I don't like shoe-less coords :(
I went to some historical house recently, they had this lace making station on display. Bobbin lace? Looks like it's missing something. I just thought it was cool. It would be a complete dream to learn how to make it... It looks difficult.
Outfit from last week that I liked
Also wore this for a picnic. I was just really happy to wear this dress again. I wear skirts so much that I think I've forgotten to wear my dresses a bit.
The strap on one of my Demonias is about to snap... I've only had them for 3 years, but hopefully they can be fixed.
I keep forgetting about ILD. I wore this today, though.
Happy ILD :D
It got warm.
I'll post some photos from the weekend. I had a nice time with my sister. I don't really have anything else to report, but I have been enjoying the warmth a lot.
It's a bit warmer now. I'm glad I can finally wear lighter clothes.
I liked the coord I wore today. Just did some shopping... The cinemas opened again so I'll be going as soon as possible.
On a different note, I've been thinking I want to add a page to link to other Neocities. I don't know about old internet etiquette, but I've seen people link to me and I always felt happy, and I think it's about time I do the same. So, that's my next plan.
I had my birthday.
It was nice. Of course I wore Dream Sky.
The weather hasn't been good lately. It's usually warm on my birthday so it was disappointing.
The shops opened up again. I haven't bought my birthday present yet, though. I'm not in a rush.
Rambling about memories
Lately I've been thinking about early Lolita memories I have. I remembered something that made me think that maybe my current about section is a bit wrong(not really important)?
Lolita fashion is very famous... and recognisable. I think most people where I grew up had at least heard of Harajuku fashion at some point, even though the idea of it might have been vague. I remember looking up pictures of Gothic Lolita in primary school. It was like admiring a piece of art, with no intention of obtaining it.
I remember trying to make a skirt for the first time, it was a yellow gingham rectangle skirt! Except I didn't know how to sew yet and it completely failed so I ended up throwing it away. I wonder if I was 14 or 15 then.
Over the years I got more and more interested in fashion, and was completely on the pastel craze from about 2012. After I moved out I only wanted to wear black... Now I like to wear almost anything.
I didn't always closely pay attention to Lolita fashion over the years, but it kept finding me!!! That's what I'm trying to say here. It's always been there, and I didn't think much of it at first other than it being cool and unobtainable. I just can't stop loving EGL... It's the coolest! The cutest! The best!
Now, I just need to get better at coording...
Enjoying the sun mid-blink.
My highlight was seeing a guy taking his parrot for a walk. I also got hailed on!
Below is from the same day but with my Mickey-headbow instead. I got really impatient for spring so I put this on to pretend. Well, spring is here but it's windy and cold.
Made these recently, this is how they look worn. Looks like tiny moustaches?
I did update those bear buttons like I said I would, I'm happy with them for now.
I didn't really have anything to write about until now. Though, I did start on that dress I wanted to make. It will be a loong time til I finish it!
Hoping for warmer weather.
Today I tried to update the appearance of this page, it's a WIP again I guess. I don't know if the border looks good. Maybe I should have made lace instead? I'll figure it out. I also want to make the bear buttons cuter. I already tried but they need to be... cuter...
I was able to wear a lot of cute clothes lately. Here's a pic from when it had snowed. It was nice to get a bit of snow... it's all gone again now though.
I finally finished that leopard bag, lol. I want to use it lots when it's spring!
This was the best photo... The bag wasn't hard to make, I just spent a really long time knitting the lace for some reason.
Speaking of knitting, I'm glad crocheting is so fashionable right now. I want to learn how to crochet too... :D
The date is symmetrical! I took a photo of me hanging out in my room.
I am once again wearing that dress.
My winter wardrobe is small, so I'd like to get some more pieces I can wear in winter. I've felt inspired to sew lately, so hopefully I'll be able to make what I have in mind. It's a bit hard to go fabric shopping right now.
Last year I tried to use the fabric scraps I had instead of buying new fabric, to avoid going outside. There wasn't much I could come up with, so I should probably use them for doll clothes. I wish my local shops sold more interesting lace, too.
