Favorite Lolita Coords of 2016

Here are some of my favorite lolita coords of 2016! This post will be very photo-heavy.

This coord was from the local Valentine’s Day Meet in February 2016. I went for a red x white color scheme! I absolutely adore that heart cookie necklace from Sweet Mildred.

Here is one of my dream dresses! It was a lucky find on Mbok as part of a set of random Metamorphose items. I wasn’t sure which cut it was (it was hard to see in the photos), but I’m so glad I took the risk! I also got some other cute Meta items in that secondhand set too.

Terry, who I refer to as my Lolita big sis, dragged me along to Japan Festival Boston 2016! I was skeptical about going since I was in a lot of pain. I spent most of my spring time on and off with using a cane and sometimes being wheelchair-bound. Lots of bad spoonie flare-ups during this season. I fight Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome daily, and it’s not fun, but I am glad I can still do things that I enjoy. I’m in pain all the time, but that’s out of my control.

My classmate Alex and I did an independent study on the visual storytelling of Alice in Wonderland and this work’s influence on Lolita fashion. This is what we wore to our presentation at the Celebrating Collaborations conference.

I was really glad to have the chance to shoot this with Kel! I had shot with him in cosplay before, but this was the first time we got to shoot fashion. I hope we’ll have the chance to work together again! This is one of my favorite dresses, and I analyzed the print for one of my essays in my Victorian Mourning course. That is definitely one of my favorite essays that I wrote during college!

I’m pretty sure this was my first (and only) time attending a summer International Lolita Day meetup. This OP is very dear to me since I bought it during an Angelic Pretty summer sale when I studied abroad in Paris. I got to meet Maki and Asuka during my time in Paris! I also love how big and roomy this Evil Live bag is.

This was a summer shoot I did for a wig sponsorship, but this marks a big day in my time with Lolita fashion since it was my first time wearing Lolita in my hometown. I was always too scared to wear it because my town is conservative, and my family always warned me against “standing out.” But I got the courage to wear this outfit, walk from home to the local library, and shoot outside. Of course, lots of people stared and there were some unwanted comments, but one lady I met was excited and complimented my unique sense of style. It felt great to wear what I love and feel confident! It was extremely hot that day though and I ended up ditching my petticoat and wig after the shoot.

Here’s my coordinate for day 1 of RuffleCon 2016! It was my first year going as an attendee. I was really nervous about my coordinates at first since I had just moved and wasn’t able to bring my full wardrobe with me. I can’t afford an apartment yet and I obviously can’t afford a house, so I’m just renting a small room at the moment. (The only furniture I bought was a bed, table, chair, and mirror… still living out of my suitcases and re-using cardboard boxes and bags to stay organized.) I was scrambling to figure out what to wear, to be honest. At first, when I packed this, I wasn’t sure how it would look together (and it was also my first time wearing this dress). I love how this dress fits though, and I can’t wait to wear it again and again! I did have a scare with the hair comb falling out and getting lost… but I found it at the front desk later that day. Thank you, anonymous person who returned my lost headpiece. ❤

And here’s my outfit for Sunday of RuffleCon! Saturday was mostly casual since I was in the fashion show. But on Sunday, I was excited to wear this gorgeous Les Mis-inspired AATP JSK paired with a brand new Triple Fortune bonnet! My friend who had a VIP pass got me the bonnet. I’m so happy to finally own a Triple Fortune item! I should probably invest in a hat box at some point though… Currently storing it in a bag but I’m so paranoid about accidentally stepping on it or something.

tumblr_ojgaj0qkrd1sv3vjto1_1280

This was my outfit for my very first fashion walk! It was the Harajuku Fashion Walk in NYC. It was a pretty chilly day, so I was wearing a coat for most of the walk (but I took off my coat for these photos). This JSK and headbow set are my only Magic Tea Party pieces, but I love looking at their designs online. I was glad I snagged this secondhand set from Lacemarket last year! I definitely want more nautical-themed items.

Here’s my coord for my very first Broadway show! Andrea took me to see Aladdin and it was so amazing. Before we went to the show, we went to Alice’s Tea Cup (where this photo was taken) for a delightful tea. The scones were heavenly.

For my first day at DerpyCon, I wore this book-themed coord! My biggest memory wearing this outfit was not a fun one: an adventure changing in a cramped bathroom. I had to bring my suitcase into the bathroom with me and I somehow fit both myself and the suitcase in a stall. And had to open up my suitcase, dig through it to find items for my coord, and put everything on. I did my makeup by the sink, but staff came in to clean the bathroom while I was still getting ready. It was definitely an interesting experience (and I hope I never have to repeat that again).

For Sunday of WinterCon, I wore Drosselmeyer’s Wonderbox. This is one of my favorite pieces I purchased from Erica (and I’ve bought quite a few things from her; she has great taste). I love tartan prints, and I especially love this holiday toy border print.

And that’s all for my favorite coordinates of 2016! Do you have a favorite look that I did last year? Please do share! I would also love to see your favorite looks of 2016. I hope you all have a very happy 2017!

[LBC] Dream Dress Coord

lbc

One of my dream prints is Day Dream Carnival, and I was lucky enough to acquire this print in my preferred colorway last year! My dream dress was the JSK in sax blue, but I couldn’t find one that I could afford. I first acquired the headbow in sax. And then eventually, I found the salopette and tights at a great deal. I had never worn a salopette before, so I was worried, but I’m so happy I got it! I would still like to own the JSK someday (maybe I could try to trade the salopette for the JSK?), but for now, I’m pleased that I have this salopette.

But what about a coordinate featuring the JSK in sax blue?

sx_001.jpg

I would coordinate this with the following items:

I don’t own any of the above items, but I think they’re all absolutely gorgeous and would go perfectly with my dream dress! I chose lots of pink to offset the dominant sax blue color of the JSK, and I picked gold shoes (and some gold-tone jewelry) to bring out the gold details of the JSK. And of course, I need to include pony motifs in the jewelry!~

[Photoshoot] Snow Dot Chiffon

DSC_7215-f

Over the summer, I had my first New York City photoshoot! Xin Lolita Photography captured these lovely photos of my Snow Dot Chiffon coordinate. (Shoutout to my awesome friend Terry for letting me borrow her BTSSB parasol! <3)

DSC_7171-f

The coord was simple but quite comfortable. It was a really hot day, so I was happy to wear a onepiece dress.

DSC_7243-f

Although, to be honest, it was really hot out and I felt like I was constantly sweating. I was so sure I would sweat off all my makeup… Thank goodness for blotting sheets.

DSC_7238-f

Central Park was way larger than I thought it would be! I knew it would be huge… but I felt like I would get lost if I wasn’t following someone who was familiar with the location. I had no idea where I was this entire time. Am I still in Central Park? Yup.

DSC_7280-f

The next photo is my favorite one from the photoshoot:

DSC_7285-f

I’m so happy Xin was able to capture a jumping photo! I love seeing photos of people in the air, mid-jump. It’s amazing to see a photo of myself mid-jump as well. I’m also surprised I don’t look awkward… Since I felt like I was making weird faces of deep concentration every time I made a jump. xD;

DSC_7179-f

This photoshoot was a lovely experience despite the summer heat, and I would love to work with Xin again in the future. Now that it’s winter, I really miss summertime… I would prefer the blazing heat over the freezing cold any day! (It snowed today in my town, and now I’m upset at the weather. I was hoping for no snow this winter, but alas, it always snows in New England.) Do you have any favorite summer memories?

Vannak Photography: Just a Dream Away

LiLiLolita4

Day Dream Carnival: Just a Dream Away…

As you know, Angelic Pretty’s Day Dream Carnival is one of my dream prints! One of my dream dresses is the Day Dream Carnival JSK in sax blue. Over a year ago, I found the headbow in sax blue on Mbok, and that was the first Day Dream Carnival item I owned. I coordinate it with some Bodyline things, but I wasn’t able to find the dream JSK I wanted. I still have yet to find it, but I did snatch up this salopette! I was worried about purchasing it since I’ve never worn a salopette before, but it was too tempting since it came with the tights and the seller was able to do a payment plan. It took me a while to pay for the set, but I am so glad I finally have this. Maybe someday I can find the JSK… But for now, I love this salopette! I wasn’t sure if I could pull off a salopette, but it’s comfy and cute.

A Surreal Photoshoot with Vannak Photography

Vannak Photography traveled to my campus for this photoshoot. I truly appreciate his time and efforts! We took most of the photos in the Botanic Gardens, but we also shot by the dorms. I definitely enjoy shooting on campus since I’m familiar with the environment (and the gardens are absolutely beautiful, especially during the summer time).

LiLiLolita3

The photoshoot took a few hours, and I tried some new things I’ve never done before. The end result was a total of five beautifully edited photos! Each photo is absolutely stunning, which doesn’t surprise me since Vannak’s work is always impressive! You should definitely check out his website.

LiLiLolita2

I even brought macarons with me to eat during this photoshoot! It was a hot summer day and the cream in the macarons melted everywhere, but they still tasted delicious. The tree in the above photo (the one with the swing) is one of my favorite trees on campus.

Below, you’ll see my favorite photo from this photoshoot! Vannak Photography brought a stool, and I sat on the stool for the photo. Leaning back and sticking my legs out like that was actually quite a workout… I felt so out-of-shape. But it was worth it: the end result is so dream-like!

LBC: Favorite Taobao Shops & Pieces

lbc

Hi, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve done Lolita Blog Carnival, but I’m back and I hope to participate more often. ❤

This week, the prompt is Favorite Taobao Shops & Pieces. First, I’ll share my Taobao dream dress! I hope I can own this print someday…

Dream Dress

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 11.09.35 AM

This is the Jardin de Versailles series from Chess Story. Chess Story is one of my favorite Taobao shops! I love this print in all of the colorways, but my favorite one is definitely in the red colorway. I love the look of the shiny gold on red!

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 11.11.26 AM

I love every item in this series, but my favorite is a tie between the OP and the JSK. I can’t decide which one I like better… I hope I can find at least one of them at some point, at a reasonable price. I only want to buy the red colorway, since it’s my favorite one, but if I find the black or the white at a great price, I may purchase it (since I would rather have one from this series if I have the chance, rather than none at all).

chess-story-le-jardin-de-versailles-op-dress-pre-sale-3-colors-3

This OP is so elegant and beautiful! I could stare at the photos all day. I really hope I can find this dress someday and add it to my wardrobe… Preferably in the red colorway!

Favorite Piece in my Wardrobe

But now, I should talk about my favorite Taobao piece that I own! And guess what? It’s a JSK from Chess Story!

tumblr_nd5uxhBZrN1sv3vjto4_500This is the Name of Rose JSK! I adore the vertical stripes and the printed red roses on this JSK. The cut is also very flattering! I think this JSK is the one that’s most flattering on me. The length is also perfect! It is comfortable to wear, and it is easy to coordinate.

tumblr_nd5uxhBZrN1sv3vjto3_1280

There is also a colorway with blue roses, but I prefer this red rose one because red is my favorite color! (I know, I’m biased toward red all the time…) I’ve worn this JSK both in lolita coordinates and as a casual dress (without the petticoat). It’s a really versatile piece!

A Lolita Staple

Besides Taobao lolita dresses, I have to mention another favorite Taobao piece, and this one is a staple: petticoats! My favorite petticoats are from the Taobao brand Classical Puppets. To be honest, before I purchased my first Classical Puppets petticoat, the only petticoats I owned were lame Halloween ones (and I had one square dancing petticoat, but it’s not very full). I own two Classical Puppets petticoat: one A-line and one bell-shaped. The first one I purchased was the A-Line one, and you can read my review for it here! (Wow that review was from over 2 years ago. I didn’t realize I had been blogging for that long.)

These are both photos of the poof produced by the A-Line petticoat:

Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 11.22.13 AM Screen Shot 2015-06-13 at 11.22.06 AM

As you can see, it gives a really nice shape to the skirts, even to the heavy velvet fabric (top photo).

Do you have a favorite Taobao shop? A favorite Taobao piece? I would love to hear about your favorites!

We will be Lolita Rappers…

Image

Yesterday, I had the chance to be part of a fun music video parody of “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore… Lolita style! You can watch the music video here. Harmonycloud ran the video-filming event, and she was nice enough to let me crash at her place since it was a long commute for me to get to Boston. I was really happy to see old Lolita friends again, as well as meet some new friends from the Boston community! Everyone was really friendly, and we had fun filming the video, taking photographs, talking about Lolita fashion (and other random topics: from feminism to our futures), and eating a delicious dinner together.

Here is a great photo (by Harmonycloud) of my coordinate:

Image

She even got a candid photo of me fixing my makeup! >w<

Image

I look so serious though… I had no idea she was taking a photo of me at the time! Then again, I took some candid behind-the-scenes photos myself… The Lolitas were wonderful actresses (and dancers)!

DSCN5329

We shot the music video in various places: a local park, in front of various churches, on a staircase up a hill… I was pleased with the locations we found. All the Lolitas present had gorgeous coordinates! From Angelic Pretty to Alice and the Pirates to Haenuli… many brands were represented! And of course, I wore my Bodyline waffle-themed OP (with my new red Bodyline shoes). For this music video, I played the part of the OTT Sweet Lolita.

Image

After we finished filming the music video, we began a new project: a mini Lolita documentary! Harmonycloud asked each of us a few questions and recorded our answers at her apartment. “What does Lolita signify for you?” was one of the questions. When we completed these brief interviews, we went out for a Japanese Barbeque dinner. It was my first time at a BBQ restaurant! The meats and sauces were delicious (and I loved the S’mores for dessert). However, I was not dolled up for dinner since I had partially changed into a cosplay… The story: I was recruited by Harmonycloud to join her My Little Pony photoshoot, but I will not be able to go to the photoshoot event next week. So, the solution was to take photos of me in my cosplay right after the Lolita rap video.

My Applejack (MLP) Cosplay!

I cannot wait to see the photos from this photoshoot, and I look forward to seeing the other girls’ My Little Pony cosplays. ❤ I am sure they will all be amazing!

Watch We will be Loli Rappers and check out our video of silly Bloopers!~

Little Post about a Great Meet-up (and my favorite JSK!)

On Sunday, April 14, I attended a meet-up in Boston that was co-hosted by two amazing Lolitas, Scarlet and Ashley. 🙂 It was a fun and casual Newbury Street Stroll, and all the attendees were dressed up in pretty frills! We had a great mix of coordinates. We ate a late lunch at a sushi restaurant, walked along Newbury Street, drank delicious hot chocolate (and ate some yummy chocolate too), did some shopping, and took photos! 

I attempted to dress up in Hime-Lolita style. ^-^ This is the coordinate that I wore to the meet-up:

Image

It features an Innocent World dress (the only brand item that I’ve purchased directly from the brand website) – the Bertille Rose JSK in the Bordeaux colorway. I adore this dress and I think it looks very princess-like! I purchased this dress during the Winter Sale. (And Scarlet purchased her IW JSK during the Winter Sale too! I gave her the JSK when I saw her at the beginning of the meet, and she changed into it. It suits her so well!) 

I paired this JSK with an offbrand blouse (something I found in a local thrift store), offbrand socks, white tea parties, vintage jewelry, and a hime crown. This JSK is my favorite dress I own at the moment. ❤ I love the feel of the fabric, I love the comfortable back shirring, and I love the rose and ribbon print! The lace is absolutely gorgeous too… And I love the Bordeaux colorway. 

Here are some group photos from the meet-up:

Image

And a silly pic:

Image

Another group photo (those machines in the background were epic <3):

Image

As we walked down the street, we saw a sign that said “Lolita” and… we just had to snap another group photograph!

Image

Ashley also snapped a cute candid shot! I had no idea she took this photo until I looked through her Facebook album today and spotted this candid picture:

Image

It was pretty chilly that day too… so most of the time, I had a coat on. I wore my (only) Lolita-styled coat though! 😀

Image

All of the above photographs were taken by Ashley (HarmonyCloud).

Prior to this meet-up, when I finally decided to try on my new IW JSK, I asked one of my friends to snap some photos of me. It was not an official photoshoot, but it was a fun little mini-shoot (and we got some good photos)! 

Here is a light-hearted photo of me hugging the grandfather clock in my dorm house living room:

Image

I love grandfather clocks so much. ❤ I actually love clocks in general. Actually, I’m sitting at he table right next to this clock as I am typing these very words. If I’m doing homework in my house or taking a study break in my house, I love sitting in the living room next to this clock.

Here’s a photograph that shows off the Bertille Rose JSK very nicely:Image

Just look at those frills. >w<

Image

That is all for now! 

I will try to blog more consistently this summer. Right now I’m in the last stretch of classes (two more weeks of classes, then finals week…), so I am really busy at the moment. But once summer comes, I’ll definitely try my best to be more active in the Lolita Blog Carnival as well as making more posts about Lolita Fashion and my coordinates. 

(Also, sorry about this very photo-heavy post!)

Some Casual Coordinates (so far, from 2013)

Warning: Photo-heavy post ahead!

My goal this year was to wear Lolita at least once a week. At the beginning of 2013, I was not doing so well with my goal. But in March, I was able to wear Lolita once every two weeks at least, and in April, I was able to wear Lolita every week, even twice a week at times! ^-^ I hope I can continue to wear Lolita every week, and hopefully I’ll be able to wear it more often as time goes on. (Since I returned home from college though, I was unable to wear Lolita every week. I’ve been busy unpacking, plus I had a convention recently, so I was busy cosplaying. And now I’m busy re-organizing my stuff and cleaning up. But I hope to try wearing Lolita once a month at least, and then work my way back to once a week!)

I’m really happy with the following coordinate, but I threw it together really last-minute to help out a friend with a project for her photography class.

DSCN2225 DSCN2222

I am wearing just a headbow, a Fanplusfriend OP, random white knee socks, and white tea parties. I have minimal accessories, very little makeup (just lip gloss and eyeliner), and a casual wig. Unfortunately, I was really tired and slightly grumpy, so I think the bags under my eyes are pretty bad… But besides that, plus the whites not really matching, I think the coordinate is alright. In the future though, I’ll be folding the large parts of the bow back. The second time I wore this headbow, I folded the top parts back and, in my opinion, it looked better that way.

252372_10201181429406399_1089111037_n

Above is a photo of what the headbow looks like with the top part of the bow folded to the back. (Photo courtesy of Tasya Ward.)

I’ll post some of my favorite casual coordinates now; feel free to ask questions regarding my coords! I will not be posting full descriptions of every coord.

Here are some of my favorite casual coordinates from this year, so far:

DSCN2194

All offbrand! The blouse was found for $2 from a yard sale, the JSK is from Bodyline, I do not remember where the socks are from (I have had them for a long time), and I believe the shoes are from Marshalls. I love those Mary Jane flats! They’re so comfy and there are built-in arch supports. Oh, and my mom made the belt! ❤

DSCN2191

The JSK is from Taobao’s Chess Story. I love this JSK so much! It’s so comfortable and I love the print. I am also wearing my first wig from Gothic Lolita Wigs in this picture! It’s in the color Wine Red, and I have to say, it is my favorite wig. The hair bow was a hand-me-down from my mom; she used to wear bows when she was my age.

010

Here is what I wore during a late-night study session. It was cold out at the time, so I wore my warm fuzzy hat! The whole coord was black and white themed, and I was wearing my black winter boots. The boots aren’t exactly loliable, but I think they work fairly well. I definitely needed those boots though… The ground was slippery and it was chilly out. :c

002

Here is a casual coord I wore during a particularly spring-y day. I am wearing my favorite color: red. The shoes are darker than my t-shirt’s shade of red, but I still really love those shoes. The coordinate isn’t perfect, but I really enjoyed wearing it.

001

Above is what I wore on Valentines’ Day. The rain boots do not match at all… but it was a rainy day. Lots of puddles. Actually, I don’t even have those rain boots anymore because they ripped and became useless. In any case, I like the blouse and the skirt together, but I don’t like the way the headbow is sitting on my head. I think I might try coordinating this again, but with better shoes, tights, and perhaps wear a wig or re-attach the bow so it sits more flat rather than standing straight up.

More recently, I tried coordinating the above skirt again when some of my college friends and I went to watch Iron Man 3 at the cinema.

DSCN2299

In this casual coordinate, I am wearing a button-down summer blouse (off brand, thrifted) with tattoo tights and my favorite mary-janes. I put my hair in a simple half-ponytail, held by a pink-and-white scrunchie.

DSCN2263

Above is another casual coordinate, using the lovely landscape JSK from Lady Sloth. I paired the JSK with a cream-colored t-shirt, cream socks, and dark brown water-resistant ankle boots. (It was another rainy day. Sorry about the lame mirror shot! I wasn’t able to ask anyone to take a photo of me that day but I wanted to record this casual coordinate.)

International Lolita Day is this Saturday, but I am unable to attend any meet-ups. I will still try to dress up in a Lolita coordinate though! It will probably be a casual coordinate… but I will try my best to dress up in Lolita nevertheless. ^-^

I will try to make another post with my favorite over-the-top coordinates soon!

Today’s Lolita Coord – Lady Sloth JSK

I love today’s coord. <333 The JSK was longer than I expected (I bought it off the Comm Sales a while ago) but I think it still works out alright. It just reminds me of how short I am. 😦 Image

Coordinate:

JSK – Lady Sloth

Blouse – Innocent World

Tights – Sears

Boots – Thrifted

Pochette – Thrifted

Mini Top Hat – Purchased from an artist at a convention

Jewelry and Accessories – Handmade or Thrifted

Image

And here’s the coat that warded off the cold:

Image

I noticed upon returning to my dorm that the coat’s buttons are all really loose so I need to fix them more tightly later. For now though, I need to focus on my papers and my homework!

In any case, I love wearing Lolita while I work because at least I can feel sort of like a princess while stressing out over my workload. XD;;

To finish up my post, here are some make-up shots from my Tumblr:
