I usually don’t get involved with these kind of things via Tumblr, but this incident happened to a close personal friend, and I thought it’d be important to get the word out there.

Princess Doll Evening Stars Coordinate

Yikes, I haven’t updated my blog in such a long time! Unfortunately (or fortunately?), my current work schedule makes it so I’m not home during the day, and I can rarely get good lighting for photos. Luckily, I got off somewhat early this afternoon, so I had a chance to put together a coordinate post.

While browsing a recent issue of Kera magazine, I caught sight of this beautiful JSK from Japanese indie brand Princess Doll. My lovely shopping service (Tokyo Pirates) told me that the name of the dress roughly translated to “Night Star Pile Up on Me Dress” (!?) or maybe “Covered with Evening Stars.” But what’s in a name? I adore constellation prints and I adore town prints, so this dress was absolute LOVE at first sight!

Krad Lanrete Lost in the Deep Blue Sea Coordinate

I’ve had a tough time thinking of how to coordinate Krad Lanrete’s popular Lost in the Deep Blue Sea JSK. I picked up bits and pieces over several months and think I’m finally satisfied with the ensemble.

Sorry for the bad photos…  >_<  I lost my digital camera and was forced to use my cellphone camera.

Shirley Temple Cute Valentine’s Day Coordinate

With Shirley Temple’s recent death, I thought I would make a Valentine’s Day coordinate in honor of her. I put together a simple, casual coord using an adorable gobelin skirt from the Japanese clothing brand Shirley Temple Cute. The pattern on the skirt features various cakes and pastries with fruit.

IW Bouquet Doll OP Coordinate

Thanks to the kind people at Dolluxe and Rockstar Wigs, I’ve received an invitation to attend a New York Fashion Week runway show for Furne Amato! (No, seriously, check out the gallery of his work—IT’S GORGEOUS). Guests have been asked to attend the event wearing lolita, and I’ve been playing around with ideas. I think I’ve settled on wearing a dress I grabbed off the EGL Sales Comm last week—even though it was released in 2011, the style of the dress (especially the collar and front ruffles) really reminds me of my first IW pieces from 2004.

…AHHH, I’M SO EXCITED!!

I’ve received my 2014 Bodyline Lucky Bag yesterday. I’m going to do a little review on mine soon, but for now I wanted to show this extra special treat I got.
I’m not sure exactly what I can do with 3 left-side and 14 right-side unattached sleeves, but I do appreciate the laugh they gave me. (≧∇≦)

Omg you can’t even make this up. The comedy writes itself.

BODYLINE ARE YOU FOR REAL
WAS THIS A JOKE

Meta Old Emblem Ribbon JSK Coord

After absolutely awful, below-zero crap weather in my area, we’re suddenly going to have a few warm days! Some members of my local comm will be visiting an art museum this weekend to see a Balthus exhibit. (I know—it’s probably going to be a little creepy showing up in “lolita” clothing at a Balthus exhibit.) I’m planning to wear one of my favorite dresses, Meta’s Old Emblem Ribbon JSK.

Brown MM Lieselotte Winter Coord

A small group of ladies in my local comm will be visiting a museum tomorrow night. Unfortunately, the weather forecast is predicting negative temperatures and snow! (At least the cold weather will be an excuse to wear one of my favorite fabrics: velvet.) I’ve been playing around with ideas for a coord that’s both museum and winter-appropriate, and this is what I’ve come up with so far.

Anonymous sent: Im gonna have nightmares about that mr. Yan lucky pack video...

lolita-tips:

You stumble through the snow. It’s dark and you know it isn’t safe to continue traveling this late but the blizzard is coming and you need to find shelter. You hear something behind you and turn to look but you can’t see very far. The sound is coming closer. A snowboard? Maybe it’s somebody coming to help? You squint to try to see through the dark and the falling snow and as the figure moves swiftly closer and closer you let out a gasp. It’s not help, it’s Mr. Yan! You turn to run but it’s no use, his snowboard is too fast and you can see that Mr. Yan is furious. His cape blows in the wind and his hat grows bigger and bigger the closer he gets. You let out a cry for help but it’s too late. You feel a sharp pain in your head from his gold good luck bag advertisement and see a flash of red polyester satin as he continues on his way down the hill. This is the last thing you see before you black out and hypothermia sets in.

Gray Rose Coordinate for ILD Winter 2013

OK, I lied! I found a different coord to wear for this ILD (I’m just really indecisive). My friends wanted to meet at an English-style restaurant for tea, so I put together a more elegant, classic (tea-appropriate?) coord.
