I finally got an opportunity to wear my new JSK, Paris by the Sea!

The coordinate consisted of:

JSK: Sweetie Pie; Handmade
Blouse: Forever21
Boots: Vintage
Jacket: Thrifted
Jewelry: Handmade

I was excited to wear this coordinate down to Lake Michigan for a photoshoot on the north pier by the lighthouse!  It was perfect weather and got so many beautiful shots.  Plus, I now have Adobe Lightroom!…

The Lost Confidence

Ever since moving, I’ve found hardly any opportunities to wear lolita.  I’m sure the new location half-way across the country has a lot to do with it; wearing lolita in a small town is a lot more intimidating than wearing lolita in a metropolis it turns out.

You’re Three Favorite Paris of Shoes for Lolita

My favorite pair of shoes, above all others, undoubtedly, are my vintage Victorian boots.  A friend found them at a thrift store but they were too small for her so she gave them to me.  They go so well with so many coordinates and add a more mature, classy feel.

A Whole New Ruffle: Zig-Zag Channel Ruffles

Unless you are blessed with a ruffler foot for your machine, gathering stitches are the typical way of gathering ruffles: two rows of long-length stitches that you pull.

However, this is not the only option, if you have some thick, wirey thread (such as quilting thread).

This method of gathering is a lot more reliable than gathering stitches, but might require a little bit more clean-up.  With…

2013: Lolita in Review

I read my “Lolita in Review” blog from last year and thought ‘I haven’t done one for 2013!’  So here we go…

My Valentine’s Day Meet-Up Coordinate was one of my favorites my far!  I was always wary of wearing my red wig with pink dresses, but this worked so well, it surprised me!  I love the simplicity and elegance of this coord.

I wore a coordinate similar to this for my graduation, at least…

LBC: Your Dream Meet-Up

This week’s topic is…

Your Dream Meet-Up

I love going to meet-ups and I miss my community in North Carolina SO FREAK’N MUCH!  They are such a wonderful community and it saddens me to be so far away and have the weekends always be so busy that I haven’t been able to meet the community in Wisconsin.

So it certainly seems like a time to dream about magical meet-ups.

I love meet-ups where you do more…
