Shopping ♥

Waaah, I didn't realise that I haven't posted for more than 10 days O_O But I realised that most of my posts are Shopping posts xD I wish I could give you more outfit posts but my daily outfits aren't that interesting, and I don't wear Lolita so often... but this is something I really want to change in my life! So I hope you aren't bored by my Shopping posts xD

I want you to present my last purchases:

Angelic Pretty Skirt - it's really short so I have to buy a new petticoat x_x

one of my dream items... but it doesn't fit me ;_____;

I looove ice cream, so it became one of my dream items

casual Pullover, but it's piiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiink!

Bunny ears for my OTT-Lolita outfit for our Wonder Egg meet-up in April

Hello Kitty ear muffs - only 1€ at Claire's

cute cat charm, which I already attached to my bag

Bodyline bunny cardigan ♥♥♥
(The last picture is stolen from Google because my bunny cardigan is at my other apartement ^^'''')

Besides that, I'm happy because I ordered my first Fairy Kei items... but I have to wait 2 month for them (because of the shoes -.-)
And I found my dream dress for cheap at an online shop... but I don't have money to buy it xD I have to wait 2 days until my salary comes, and now I'm checking nearly every hour if the dress is still in the webshop... yeah I'm really crazy. AND I'm not even sure if I really want to buy it, because it's plain pink, but I want a dress with OTT-print at the moment... on the other side it is my dream dress and I searched for it so long... hard decisions a Lolita has to make, right?
AP Dream Magic pink

My next post will be not about shopping, I swear xD

My Wardrobe + Meme

In case you don't know it, there is a wardrobe theme at the egl-Community on Livejournal, and everyone is posting their wardrobes, including me ^_^
If you want to see what is in my wardrobe, please follow this link:

And I did a little Lolita meme about my wardrobe, style etc. (stolen from dandelion_cloud @ LJ):

~ GENERAL ~

What colors can be found in your Lolita closet?
mainly pink, white, cream, red, black

What is your favorite color with Lolita?

Pink!!

Which uncommon color would you want to try out sometime?
Gold, I know it's not that uncommon but a whole golden dress is!

~ DESIGN ~

Are you more of a onepiece, jumperskirt or skirt person?
I can't decide because all three styles fit me good. I like skirts because you can create more different outfits than with dresses, but I also like dresses because your outfits look more decorated.

Which neckline is your favorite?
square necks on dresses, round necks on blouses

Print or no print?
Print! Or at least a little bit decoration, otherwise it looks boring ^^'

What does a dress/skirt have to look like for it to be a "I must have it" for you?
~ it is in my favorite colors
~ the print is clearly visible (not like Jewellery Jelly from AP, I can't even identify the print when I see the dress in real life O_O)
~ I can make a whole coordination in my head with it (I have maaany dream coords in my head, also with items in plain colors)

~ STYLE ~

What is your favorite Lolita style(s)?
Sweet!, Country, Hime, Casual

Which style would you wear regularly?
Sweet, if I had the balls (and enough clothes) for it

Which style would you want to try out?
Sweet-Punk (like Nana Kitade in her old days ♥), EGA, Ero-Lolita (in white x pink)

Which style would you never, ever wear or try out...ever?
~ (Kuro-)Gothic... I would try it on at a friends home, but I would feel very uncomfy in a whole black outfit - that might sound strange because I wear black outfits with my normal wardrobe, but I don't like to look like a Goth ^^'
~ Wa/Qui, because I would feel weird to wear clothes of a culture that isn't mine... don't you think that Japanese people would look strange in a Dirndl? ^^'

~BRAND~

Brands: Yes or no and why?
Yes, because they just look super pretty, have good quality and make you feel like a 'real' Lolita.
But also no, because sometimes they have bad quality (like AP bags) and are just not worth their money!

Which brand is your favorite?
Angelic Pretty ♥♥, Baby the stars shine bright ♥, Putumayo, Maxicimam, Motie (their white pieces)

Which is your least favorite brand?
Metamorphose (I don't like any prints of them O_O)

~OTHER~

Things that you like about Lolita?
~ you look and feel like a princess
~ you look like a doll
~ the many details of the clothes
~ my friends and other people I get to know through this fashion

Things that you dislike about Lolita?
~ all the hate in online communitys
~ the high prices
~ that there are no physical stores where I live, so I can't try the clothes on and I have to pay high shipping costs
~ that strangers have to harass you because they can't accept that you look different

Does Lolita affect your everyday life?
Yes and no, because I had the typical Lolita lifestyle before I even knew something about the fashion, but through the fashion I learned to live my lifestyle more intensive like I want it, without paying so much attention to what other people think about me

Do you buy Lolita looking things? Like furniture or hats or something?
Yes, everytime I buy something I try to get the most loliable thing I can find ^_^

Do you buy/read the Gothic Lolita Bible?
I already own one issue and I want to collect all of them, but it's a bit pricey so I have many copies saved on my PC ^^'''

How would you describe your fashion style to others?
cute, colorful, as much candy as possible (even with Country Lolita xD)


Thank you for reading! If you do this meme too, please tell me in the comments, I would love to read it :)

Cologne'n'Cupcakes

Yesterday I was in Cologne with my friend Evangeline. We wanted to go to "Royal Cupcakes" and try their cupcakes again (the last time we bought some there was in summer on a very hot day: we bought the cupcakes and walked with them around 1 hour, and after we found a nice place in the shadows, we ate the cupcakes and they tasted horrible -.-). This time the cupcakes were a bit better but I'm still not a fan of them, because the cream tastes like sugar... not that I hate sugar (I looove candy cotton), but I don't think it's delicious on top of a cupcake. Maybe I'm also a bit spoiled by a great Cupcake-store in Vienna, which I visited with some local Lolitas last year, and they were so big and delicious *_*

hungry Evangeline *o*

A little girl asked her mom if I were a ballerina xD

After this we went to some stores, but I didn't bought anything, and then we ate Sushi at our favorite restaurant: Sushi'n'more at Cologne central station. You have to try it, it's the best Sushi in town!

♠♣♥♦

This week I also bought some Lolita items and I hope they will arrive soon! And I'm working on a Fairy Kei order, I already found some items but I can't decide which items I should take xD

This tights are from H&M and for children, but it's size 158-164, and if you are not higher then 164cm and wear not more then size 38-40, you can buy them and they will fit! Trust me, I have this measurements and I can wear them xD

The rings are made for children and very small, but I read that you can make them wider with hot water!

Happy New Year + Harajuku Videos

First, I wish you all a Happy New Year! I had no date so I went to the cinema to watch the new Sherlock Holmes movie. I didn't saw the first one but I read the story of it and realised that they have two different storys, so I thought this wouldn't be a problem. I heard from sooo many people that the movie is great, and now I can tell you my own opinion:
...
I didn't understand the movie xD I really couldn't follow the story and for me it was just an action movie with beautiful costumes and locations, but no good structure of the story... maybe I should give it a second try? -.-

And I found three videos where they ask people at the Takeshita Street in Harajuku about their styles (I think Takeshita Street is a famous street for shopping).
In the first video they asked people about their styles and introduced the "twin type".
In the second video they introduced the Decora style and asked the people about their jobs. I find this one interesting because you can see many different styles of Decora, it's not just putting on everything you own ^_^ I don't wear this style myself but it's always a pleasure for me to look at.
In the third video they show two girls and visit them at home. It's interesting to see how japanese parents see the fashion of their daughter.







I love the last sentences of the third part:
"I listened to a lot of people, a common factor of them is they all really like fashion [...] and they are frugal of money for dressing up".
