More Legwear

Hi my dears,

recently, I restocked my legwear collection (^.^)
Socks and tights are a very important item in Lolita fashion, the possibilities and varieties of styles and coordination are almost endless. Stockings of any kind have always been a beloved accessoire of mine, also before I started wearing Lolita.

This time, I placed an order at funnylegs.de. That's what I got:

black pothole stockings
black-white vertical striped stockings
black-white checked stokings
black opaque stockings

I looked at quite a few online shops and then chose to try funnylegs.de, because they have a great selection of styles and brands (like Leg Avenue, MusicLegs, Kunert etc.), prices are in my range considering they sell good quality items and shipping costs are low for me since they are located in Germany.
Communication was excelent, you can pay easily with PayPal or bank transfer, and when you send something back (like I did), you get your money back. Handling and shipping was very fast, the parcel arrived thee days after I placed my order and also the refund for the items I sent back was paid immediately.
Allover, I highly recommend funnylegs.de to order nice stockings, socks or leggins, they sure have something for every taste and occasion. I personally can't wait to wear my new darlings (*.*)

Friday Favourites #1



Maybe some of you know this, during the week a lot of nice pictures cross your way, but either you just store them in some random folder or you've forgotten about them after two seconds - at least that's how it goes with me. So following an idea by Kaylah from The Dainty Squid (a very readable blog, btw), I thought I'll share some of the best pics with you every friday (^.^)


amazing coord by Caramea

also a beautiful outfit by Mia

a dollhouse - no, a doll - no, a house...?


a beautiful coord: blouse & skirt by Victorian Maiden, corset by Excentrique


isn't this teapot lovely?

What do you think? Do you like it?

Breathe



source



breathe, inhale the clean fresh air
take off your shoes, feel the slightly wet grass underneath your feet
feel the blades of grass between your toes
wiggle them, close your eyes.
cuddle and hug, everyone you love
smile at strangers, see how beautiful they are
feel the wind touching your face, hear the whisper
bike trough the rain, and feel the raindrops on your face
inhale
exhale
now you made sure you're alive.

Upcycling

Good morning!

I hope you all started well into the new week after the prolonged weekend (^.-)
I did some sewing, yay! Maybe one or the other of you remembers this bolero I made ages ago. It was actually quite cute, but the cut sucked so I never really wore it. But the fact that a lot Lolitas seem to wear vests lately and an outfit Natron posted a while ago both inspired me to turn it into a cute vest:


It's actually quite short, since the length was given, obviously. Nevertheless, I like it. It's lined with black jersey from an old t-shirt I'm not wearing either and also the buttons were already lying around in my sewing box, which means I didn't spend anything on this vest (apart from the thread, but we're not  nitpicking)


Well, just imagine it ironed and de-wrinkled xD.
I also have a great idea to coordinate it with, but this idea means I have so sew another skirt first (>.<)
I already ordered the fabric, oh, this is going to be awesome *being mysterious*

Mystical

Good morning my dears,

thank you for those who gave their opinion in the poll on the right side, it really helps me to see what you like to read here (^.^)

I've shown you before the spring/summer 2012 collection by Bibian Blue, called Crystal Flowers.
The pdotographer Xanti Rodriguez now made a beautiful photoshoot, whose outcome I'd like to share with you.






On her blog, there can also be found a making-of video from the shooting, of which I don't want to deprive you either:

Black Ruffles

Hi my dears,

I finally found some time to sew something again (^.^)
My fabric mountain has been growing alarmingly lately, so I used 2m of black gabardine to make a rather simple lolita skirt:

the fabric's not that shiny irl

Making the ruffles took ages! But I like how it turned out, since its style is quite simple, it can be coordinated in many ways.

Starting Again

Hi,

so since I finished my knitting work, I've been tackling my quilt again. It's becoming a little (just a tiny little bit) boring, because it's basically always the same:


Pretty round flowers (^.^)
