Dolly Kei Hair Accessories!

I was inspired by Hitomi's line called "Dolly"...so I decided to try my hand at making my own dolly kei hair accessories!

It's my first time making these, so con crit is appreciated.

Also I am still debating of a way to attach these to the head--headbands? Hair clips? Barrettes? Pins? Please, give me your input! :) I have some barrettes but they're HUGE. Also the hair clips that snap back and forth seem too small/flimsy for such a large flower. I am considering glueing on a felt patch that contains some kind of alligator clasp along with a pin to make these into brooches! What do you think?

I will use the smaller hair clips with smaller roses to make tinier ones. :)

Hair clip/brooch:

Another hairclip/brooch, slightly larger one:

This hairclip/brooch has a cute patch of feathers on it! :)

Underside, without the felt added on yet:

What do you girls think?? :)

New Layout!

I decided it was time for a layout change. Darker colors for fall and winter? Except that autumn is definitely over with and winter is almost(?!) over with? :-S

But that's OK.

I am STILL trying to iron out the wrinkles. The bg doesn't align properly and I can't seem to find a way to change the "read more" png image yet. I am sifting through my HTML and I can't seem to find the url for it. GAWH.

LOL blogfail.

Thanks for bearing with me, dear readers! I am 100% NOT a graphic design-inclined individual. But believe it or not that has changed over the years.

So my banner is featuring lovely girls in dolly kei fashion since that seems to be my "next big thing" that I'm into. Don't worry, I haven't abandoned gyaru or lolita by any means (or mori despite so much crossover between mori and dolly kei fashions) but I am just really obssessing over dolly kei lately. xD So last time my banner featured gyaru but now it's dolly kei. Maybe next time will be mori or lolita or some other fashion. IDK yet. It seems like it's a reflection of my current mood/fashion interests. Maybe we'll even see a punk or goth banner? xD I am so lazy when it comes to changing these though :-S Maybe now that I have time I'll make a bunch of different ones or something for future use? :S

OK I am rambling now. STAY TUNED! I want to do makeup tutorials next!!

And here is the rest of it.

Finally! An Update! Dolly kei finds on Etsy!

So I am finally in this country again. @___@; Jamaica was SUPER fun though. I went to a really sweet resort called Hedonism II. It totally has a nude beach. :3 No tan lines! Haha! But that's out little secret. >__>; *shifty eyes*

Anyhoo. So I have decided since I am falling more and more in love w/ Grimoire, I think I want to start my own little mini-Grimoire on Etsy inspired by the shop and the dolly kei style in general. The plan is to google for local estate sales and hit those up and purchase lots of dolly kei style clothes and sell them on Etsy for really reasonable prices! No paying $80 for a dress! Especially an outrageously old one. That's just dumb. Honestly. @__@; Anyway.

My makeup is pretty much all made but I don't have labels for any of it yet, so a certain special boy is supposed to help me with those come January. ;) My main issue before is that I couldn't get the labels to align and they were all printing crookedly. >_<; Fail! Gotta fix that and print ingredient labels as well!!! @_@; so much to do! Oy! 2011 is gonna be busy! I have a lot on my plate. I want to lose weight, start up this business/shop, and above all, produce some great coordinates of my own and have a ton of fun!

Speaking of coordinates! I have purchased quite a few new items for dolly kei. Click the little cut-thing below to see pictures and read pointless banter! Ahoy! :)

Virgin of Guadalupe Skirt. (OMG! I freaking love it.) It was handmade by a girl on Etsy. Turns out she loves dolly kei too! I am definitely going to be keeping an eye on her shop for more really cute items. I plan on coordinating this with black and possibly red or yellow too! Maybe even green! GREEN! :D I can see myself wearing this with a black turtleneck and black tights with some killer black boots or even just flats!

A GORGEOUS skirt that was even featured on the Grimoire shop page! Except this skirt has been altered, I believe, to be shorter. I had been wanting this for ages but I didn't want to pay the shipping price from Slovenia so I just politely asked the lady selling it if I could get a cheaper shipping method that would take longer (which I do not mind!) and she OK'd it so voila! :) Yay!!! I feel like I own a piece of Grimoire's stock now...but not really! xDD

Tooled leather bag from the 70s! I got it because I wanted a slightly larger one than the one I used in my photoshoot. So yeah....I've also seen tons of these pop up on Grimoire's shop blog. :D

Another lovely item from the 1970s--a vintage tapestry bag! I kept seeing these on the Grimoire shop blog. And then I saw one tonight at a pawn shop but it wasn't for sale (wtf?) lol. So I got this one instead on Etsy. =]

My #1 absolutely most prized dolly kei item EVER. 8-) I used it in a photoshoot not too long ago. I ADORE it. :D It perfectly captures the dolly kei vibe!

The aforementioned photoshoot included this dress...it was definitely a steal at $14.99. Unfortunately it had holes in the armpits...I STILL need to fix this. @__@; I ADORE it though--it has gotten SO much wear already. xD

Bought this little gem tonight! I plan to coordinate it with a black belt, black shawl, and black tassels around the waist!! :) Maybe a black top hat to go with it or something like that? 8-)

That's all for now...I have a few other items in my eyesight but IDK if I will actually buy them or not. I think I may post a screencap of my wishlist on Etsy. Some BEAUTIFUL stuff but soooooo expensive!! Gawh!! Hehehe. *drools*

Hmm what else? I think that's it for now. Oh and I also got an all white Gunne Sax dress. My first ever gunne sax purchase. xD From eBay. But it's not been shipped yet due to me not being able to pay till post Jamaica vacation. I HOPE IT FITS gaw. It's like a tiny bit small I think, for me, but we shall seeee.


I need to make some of these LIKE NOW!

I found an old glue gun and stick in my closet, so I know what my next craft project is going to be while I am down here in Florida. :)

Finally, I made a post on dolly kei comm on LJ asking why girls dressed in dolly kei. This was a really great response:

"I've always wanted to look like I was living in a fairytail, but not the princessy like, I wanted the magic, the mystery, the quirckyness, the morbid facination with a bit of elegance and some cool gadgets. Dolly Kei, lolita and Steampunk have these elements and I think they would fit well together. So to conclude this long rant, these fashion styles represent to me the will and freedom to be yourself and to not let anyone stand in your way!"

Temporary Hiatus

As you may have noticed, I haven't updated in a while. :'(

It's finals week at my uni so things have been SO busy. And I am going out of the country on the 16th of December and I won't really be back till after Xmas.....! I am going to sunny JAMAICA! :)

So unfortunately there won't be many updates after this until maybe January.

Sorry about that!

But I promise I have TONS of content to put in, just sooo busy with school! >_<;

Until next time!

Grimoire/Dolly Kei Shoot Teasers!!!

Edit: you can now see more photos at the grimoire_japan community OR the dolly-kei community on LJ. I did a cross post!!

Yesterday, I did a pro photo shoot with Charles Barnes Photography! :)

I don't have all the pics yet just three....so check these out and let me know what ya think! :D

Also my awesome roommate, J-chan started a blog!
It's about finding stuff on the ground, hehehe no joke! Go check it out:

Derp derp!

Also I have been reading a great comic lately called Otoyomegatari aka Young Bride's Story. It's about a girl called Amira who is forced to marry a 12 year old prince from another village. She has a good life there and likes the prince but then her father wants her to abandon her marriage so she can be married off to another clan who treats their wives roughly. The art is SO beautiful omggggg. *___*; You can read it here:


Stay tuned for more photos! :)

Tutorial Post! Natural/Dolly Eye!

Sorry for lack of actual update folks. It's coming up on finals week. URRGH. But before that I am lucky enough to get Thanksgiving break! I will be flying home to Pittsburgh next week to be with my family. =]

A few days ago I did a photoshoot (again!) with the lovely Miss Jessica of Wonderland Imagery! :D

I wore mori girl this time. Last time I wore gothic lolita. So a friend of mine on facebook wanted to know ever so desperately how I did my very plain, simple makeup for the gothic loli shoot.

So without further ado! xD

And I will post the pics from both shoots later but for now here's a teaser! :D

Aromaleigh VS Others: BLUSH

Just a video I did a few days ago about Aromaleigh Sonic Rouge Blush that I got in comparison to a few other blushes I own. Nothing fancy.

Enjoy! :P

Haul from Cherry Culture: Amuse Cosmetics and NYX!

I ordered from CherryCulture.com and I got stuff by AMUSE Cosmetics. :)

Youtube review under the cut!

Please excuse my general lack of foundation...it was 11pm at night. xD
This look was created using mostly the Forever 16 Palette. I might have stolen a little bit of eyeshadow from the Twinkle Star palette too but I don't really remember. I used the NYX MILK Jumbo Eye Pencil as a BASE for these shadows! You can see how vibrant they are over the white eyepencil.

Btw. Both the pencil and the shadows contain METHYLPARABENS and PROPYLPARABENS. Just letting you know! :-S The effects of parabens on our skin and bodies is still largely unknown but some studies suggest adverse effects after long term usage.... they are used as preservatives to prevent mold and other nasty stuff from growing in your eyeshadows, lip products, etc. When I formulate my own shadows and lippies I plan to avoid parabens altogether and seek alternative forms of preservatives. Parabens are used in mostly for water based substances, like lotions! Water gives a place for bacteria to grow unlike oil based substances....

Update! Finally! Halloween &c.

Sorry for lack of Loli Spotlight last Friday, I was totally swamped! I've had so many exams this week, and still more to come. :(

Sad face!

But! The good news is that I will be starting my own line of cosmetics! :)

You can "Like" it on facebook here: Click

And here's my Etsy Storefront!
Click Here!

Click below for some not so exciting stuff. :P

This was my Halloween costume!

Silk Spectre from Watchmen! :)

I ordered a cuuuute Meta bag! It's sparkly and pink and FREAKING GLITTERY! OMG! Love it. :D

My shopping service (Mai) was kinda enough to include a bonus free gift! :D A charming little phone strap made to look like a real cream puff...mmm tasty! :3

A while ago I ordered two absolutely beautiful fur stoles on eBay but when I got them they smelled kinda funny....like.....an old lady's closet. So I took them to the drycleaners and I fianlly got them back today. @____@;

Real Fox Fur (1930s vintage)

Real Mink Fur (1930s vintage)

I know some people think it's "wrong" to wear a dead animal over your neck (I avoided the ones with head and feet still attached for these reasons!) but honestly? These critters have been dead for more than 80 yrs now. Poor animals. :( I wouldn't want their soft, warm fur to go to waste. And from the way they smelled before I had them drycleaned, it sounded like they had been going to waste--molding away--in some old lady's closet for years and years, maybe even DECADES. O_O; So I thought, well, it's going to be freezing cold outside soon and I want to stay warm, might as well put these poor guys to use since they've been dead for so long instead of wasting 'em. I'd NEVER buy real fur that has been "freshly killed" so to speak. Only vintage furs! I am sure you might think "well that's not any better!" but oh well. To each their own! :P Plus I paid wayyy too much in eBay shipping, drycleaning, etc. to not wear 'em. What is your opinion, girls (and guys) ? Would you wear fur even if it's been dead for so long? Or never at all? Keeping in mind that you don't know if the rest of the animal was put to use (e.g. for food, fat, etc.) or wasted. We kill animals for food all of the time...so it makes me wonder what happens to the rest of it? Well I suppose it gets used. E.G. chickens. I saw this great show on Food Network once about how this family owns a small business where if a hunter gets a bird of some sort (wild game) he or she takes it there and they will pluck the feathers, turn it into a pillow of some sort, cut up the meat, package it, and give it back to the hunter for some fees. What a great way to use the whole animal! :D

Anyway! This wasn't meant to be some big moral discussion on killing of animals for meat, fur, feathers, or otherwise, but... I guess I felt like discussing it. :) Would love to hear your opinion(s)!


So as of right now I am just waiting on my makeup shipments....so I can start blending stuff! I will be selling lipgloss in tubes and pans as well as eyeshadow loose pigments in jars as well as in pressed powder form in pans! :)

So tell me, dear readers, what shades and hues would YOU like to see in lip products and eye products? I plan on making pastel fairy kei inspired cosmetics as my first "line." :)

Loli Spotlight #1

So after reading through some LJ posts and blog posts and just sort of sitting around pondering lolita in general, I think it would be awesome to start something called the "Lolita Spotlight." So many girls get posted to CGL or Loli Secret for no reason other than to be made fun of. SO I decided over the course of a week (or whenever I have time to look at daily lolita in general) I am going to collect a folder of pictures of lolitas from d_l posts that I find inspiring! I promise it's not going to be a slew of just "popular" lolitas! What I am focusing on here is the coordinate! Background and the quality of the photo are important too because even if an outfit is really amazing, if it was taken in poor light or if the photo itself is TINY then yeah..... going to be a pain to try and examine it.

I have in no way shape or form contacted any of these girls about using their pics on my blog. SO that being said, if you're pic is on here, and you randomly surfed on, and you are NOT OK with your pic being used please just contact me or leave a comment and I will remove it ASAP! No questions asked! :) I know it's usually not a good idea to use peoples' pics without their permission first but people do it all the time on Tumblr so I don't see how a blog is any different. :/ I just figured it would be a positive way to spread lolita love and inspiration on the net. :D If you want to see more of a girl's coordinate, click her picture and it will link you to her daily lolita post. Then you can see her other outfits and maybe give her a comment? :)

So without further ado....click!


Style: Classic Lolita
Why I like it: She has done a wonderful job of coordinating all those shades of brown together in a very simple yet elegant classic coordinate. Her choice of plain tights allows the print on the bottom hem of her dress to do the talking so to speak! This is the kind of outfit I would love to wear out to a cute bakery with my friends. :)


Style: Gothic Lolita
Why I like it: It's very simple in the way of colors but she did a great job of combining lots of different textures into her outfit. The lace on the tights, the ruffles on her skirt, the sleeves of her blouse, her wavy/curly hair. It all just flows together marvelously not to mention it's deliciously gawthic and she chose a lovely spot to take photos. :) I would love to wear this out to a haunted mansion with some friends for a Halloween meet up!


Style:Casualish Sweet/Classic Lolita
Why I like it:I couldn't decide if her outfit was more sweet or more classic. I am pretty sure the dress is from BtSSB which IS a sweet brand but she subdues some of the sweetness by covering the lacy and ribbony bodice up with a black cardigan. Plain black socks/tights and sweet shoes. OK so I guess it IS more sweet! But anyway, that's not too important! What matters is she skillfully combined a BRIGHT color with black and for that I give her props. Black, white, and red. Very classy! I'd love to wear this on a walk around the city with friends. :D


Style: Sweet Lolita
Why I like it: OK so maybe I am a bit biased. When I saw this outfit I immediately knew I wanted to talk about it! Pink x Yellow is one of my favorite color combos in lolita! :D Yellow in general is a color that isn't often worn, at least outside of the AP realm. I forget if her dress is AP or handmade or offbrand....but it doesn't matter! I love the plainness of it. There's no busy-ass print on the dress, it's just all beautifully solid colors. :D It's like a lovely layer cake of yellow and pink, yellow and pink.... yellow headbow, pink blouse, yellow jsk with pink accents, yellow socks, pink shoes! You could even do a variation of this with pink socks and yellow tea party shoes. :D The silver teddy bear necklace stands out just enough to create a nice accent touch and not be overwelming to the rest of the coord. I'd love to wear this outfit to a carnival or theme park. :D


Style: Classic Lolita
Why I like it: Simple yet cute and elegant classic lolita. The color of the dress is such a beautiful burgundy! There is no other burgundy in the outfit but that's OK because it only makes the dress stand out more as a focal point. Her bag is whimsical yet appropriate for the rest of the coord. It certainly makes things less serious but still maintains the elegance of classic lolita. Lace tights are elegant but not super busy, and make the blouse flow with the rest of the outfit since there is white surrounding the burgundy. Her accessories and shoes are simple along with a every so slightly curled hairstyle. This keeps it from being too extreme. I'd love to wear this outfit out on a date. :x


Style:Casual Sweet Lolita
Why I like it: I just love the sandwiching of red and black in this coordinate! The bright red bustier makes a statement but it is a solid color so it doesn't distract too much from the busy print on her skirt. The red boots on the bottom make the redness of the bustier balance out. She chose plain tights which allows the print to do the talking! The only thing I would love to see as an addition to this coordinate is maybe a simple silver or gold necklace with a cute motif like perhaps cherries since that is the motif on her skirt, or hell, even a RED cherry necklace short enough so that it's against the black of her blouse. :D I'd love to wear this outfit to an apple orchard in the fall for picking apples! (Assuming the boots had a low heel!) xD

Well that's all for now, folks! I really hope you enjoyed this installment of Lolita Spotlight! If you have any suggestions or tips for me or if you want your photo removed or something, just leave remarks in the comments below! :) If this seems like a good idea, I will try to do it every Friday, homework and such permitting. :D

Hope you all enjoy your Fridays! :D And have a good weekend!

PS: Next week expect Halloween costume updates and LOTS of make-up haul posting! :D

Sorry for lack of Weekend Update :P

Nothing too much to report outfit-wise. My mannequin has a fairy kei-esque coordinate in progress on it, and today and tomorrow is fall break for SLU students. SO that means I am pretty much sitting on my butt. What better time for a blog update? I think this update will cover a lot of stuff!

I. - My latest purchases, woohoo.
II. - A short thing about jeggings.
III. - Loli and Gyaru Secrets: Differences, Drama.
IV. - Videogames (WHUT!)
V. - Misc. blabbing. :D

I hope this post is semi-informative for people who don't know anything about lolita secrets or gyaru secrets... and I guess, jeggings?


I. Latest Purchases

Nothing too crazy...mostly just shoes and boots:

Forever 21 Cream Work Boots

Charlotte Russe Tan Riding Boots:

Fits SO well! So comfy too!

Charlotte Russe Black Satin Pumps:

(Bought for professional wear.)

Innocent World High Collar Blouse:

(Fits like a dream!)

New Necklaces:

The professional me. Don't I look happy? :P I got accepted into a mentor networking program and now I have to dress up all fancy-like. Fffffffffff. lol. The whole suit is from Express picked out via a friend of mine.

Without jacket:


II. Jeggings: Just what the hell are they anyway?

Answer: Well they're basically a new(?) trend I've been seeing lately...although I did buy my first pair around May or so ...so maybe it's not exactly "new" but yeah... they look like JEANS at first glance but they fit like LEGGINGS. They're very soft and comfy!

So far I bought three pairs:

Left to right: Claire's brand jeggings, Hollister brand jeggings, and Blue Asphalt (Wet Seal) brand jeggings. :D

Claire's: Looks more like regular leggings only with a denim color to them and jean-like stitching. No pockets, no belt loops, no nothing. I'd recommend this style be worn with a skirt or dress over it.

Blue Asphalt/Wet Seal: Looks a lot like real jeans! I wear these as if they are jeans only they pockets don't actually work. The belt loops really work and you could even pair a belt with these to increase the "jeans" effect. But they really fit like leggings. They are so tight that I have to wear a thong or similar undergarments or else you can see my pantyline. That's the only con. :(

Hollister: Looks (and functions) the most like real pair of jeans. Pockets work, belt-loops are real....but they are very stretchy. Not as stretchy as the other two pairs I have but definitely more comfy than regular jeans!

All in all my fave are the Blue Asphalt jeggings because they are basically imitation jeans. And sooo comfy. Just kinda tight. @__@; but that was my fault for not getting the correct size...haha.

I hope that enlightened you gals about jeggings if you didn't already know about them. If you did, well, good for you! I hope you skipped over this section of my post. xD (Or at least looked at pics? xD)

Here's a pic, btw, of the Blue Asphalt jeggings worn:

Just like jeans only not! :D
III. Secrets: What the heck?

So you are new to either lolita and/or gyaru communities. You hear talk of "secrets" communities for both or either. You wonder what the heck are people talking about? Well if you've ever heard of "Post Secret" it's kind of like that. Except specific to either lolita or gyaru. I will mention and talk about both because I have read (and still do read) both communities since I really admire and adore both styles.

Lolita Secrets consists of people posting their "secrets" relating to the fashion. What your favorite color(s) are in lolita, why you like a certain model, what you didn't like about X brand's latest collection. Except.... in my opinion it has sort of taken a turn for the worse. :(

I miss when secrets were stuff like: "I secretly admire this model because she reminds me of my sister" or "I really feel magical when I wear lolita in the forest!" But now it's mostly personal attacks on lolitas, complaining about so and so being too tiny or too big for brand clothes, or newbies crying that long time wearers of the fashion are "mean" or "elitist." Or just plain old trolling. Yeah. Boring.

Sometimes girls find themselves as a target for mockery or hate. What do you do if you are the center of someone's attack? Just ignore 'em. It's just the internet. Don't feed the trolls and give them the satisfaction of knowing they got to you! (So true!) Seriously. Same goes for gal secrets. In my opinion, gyaru secrets is even more scathing/hurtful than lolita secrets. The reason why is probably because gyaru is a fashion that is even more focused on beauty and looks than lolita. Lolita is about retaining innocence and beauty and all that good fluffy frilly stuff. But gyaru is more about following the latest trends, more emphasis on coordination skills, and definitely hair and makeup/styling abilities. So therefore girls are subjected moreso to hateful comments about their weight, face, make-up, hair, clothes, etc. Comments like "ugly!" or "eeew man-face!" or "gross, you're such a hooker!" paired with a photo of the poor girl getting attacked are very common on gyaru secrets. At least on lolita secrets, there are rules about using photos from fashion comms like daily lolita. (Like taking photos straight from someone's post on that comm.) But yeah....

If you see a girl with a cupcake skirt, it's often times safe to think that she might be a lolita. Especially if she's wearing cute shoes and a blouse and all the other stuff. But for gyaru, what defines a gyaru? Is it the make-up? Hair? Clothes? The attitude? See, that's the problem. All of those things I just mention can make someone gal or not gal. Even the hair or makeup can be make or break for a gyaru coordinate. Which is why I always say "gyaru INSPIRED" outfit when I post to my blog since I don't always have the time or energy to take pics.

If a girl is wearing a lolita brand dress with no petticoat, no blouse, no nothing...well can she still be considered a lolita? No. Not usually. Or not in that particular case. Same goes for gal. If you don't have the make-up and hair, you're just wearing trendy clothes. Same with the theoretical lolita I mentioned. If you don't take the time to coordinate and add the essentials (petti, blouse, socks, appropriate shoes, makeup and hair) you aren't really wearing the fashion in the traditional sense.

A lot of secrets focus on who is or isn't wearing X fashion. I mean, come on. If someone posts to her blog or live journal with her latest BtSSB purchase or latest MA*RS purchase and is excited to wear it, but she didn't have time to do her hair, then yeah, she's not really full-on gyaru or full on lolita at that moment. But she's just showing off her swagger. Do we really need 20 secrets a week about how so and so is or isn't wearing a fashion? Jesus. Same with the "so and so" is so ugly type secrets. Beauty is very subjective. For instance, I personally think most manbas are hella scary to look at even the ones who are "doing it right." (And usually there is a beautiful girl hiding underneath all that icky makeup that's caked on!!!)

Personally, I don't care if someone is doing manba "right" or not. It all looks bad to me. =/ I am NOT saying I disrespect them for all the hard work and effort they put into their clothes and makeup and hair...it's just NOT for me. It's my opinion, my 2cents, my soapbox.... I respect them but I'd never ever wear it myself. And I am sure a lot of lolitas feel that way too. Like sweet vs. gothic lolitas. There always seems to be secrets each week with "oh I hate sweet lolis they look like overgrown toddlers!" Or "ew goth lolis are so drab looking! They all look like clones!" Bawwwww.


So TL;DR, readers...secrets = a big joke. Sometimes there are some funny secrets or cute secrets and this is why I am still a fan of secrets communities. And sometimes I like to get stuff of my chest too like "I can't believe Innocent World picked this color scheme! Yeef!" or "I adore this model!" but I would never waste time to write a rude, catching secret about a girl I don't even know for no reason. Seriously. The more I read about teen suicides in the news because of online bullying, the more I wonder wtf is wrong with secrets comms but more so the idiots who post negative troll secrets every week. @___@; A good way to get rid of this would be to outlaw personal attacks altogether but then no one would read secrets anymore (well, a LOT less would) which is really really sad TBH. :(

*end rant* xD

IV. Videogames

I FINALLY got a PSP and FFT: War of the Lions. I have been wanting this game for AGES now. Do any of you lovely followers enjoy videogames along with frilly/trendy clothes?

This was the first ever game I played for Playstation 1. (PSX.)
So to finally get a new, remade, updated storyline is AWESOME to me! :D So nostalgic! :) The PSP was borrowed from my guy-pal, Connor. :]


V. Blah blah blah.

Nothing much else to report. Oh! Remember the mori girl outfit from my last post? Well I tweaked it a bit and added more layers! I am sad though that I can't wear it yet. The weather here (in St. Louis) is still too hot for mori! Wtf!

Added two skirts. One is borrowed from my roommate. :D
I still look at this coord and sigh to myself and think "it's still incomplete." I realllly want to add a gigantic, white, ruffled underskirt to this whole thing to flesh it out more. Right now it's "too short" in my opinion. I guess I always tend to get an idea of how I want a coord to look in my head and then I am never satisfied with it until it's complete. xD


Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Feel free to add feedback in your comments. :)
