since we're already talking about shopping; maybe some of you remember the resolution I took at the beginning of the year, which includes not to shop for a year.
Well, I must admit, I'm doing better than I expected xD. I purchased something at Hellocon, an order from qutieland arrived (which I had placed in december 2013, so it doesn't count), and I stumbled upon some Lolita dreamdresses which I couldn't help but buying (already mentioned, but this is something I allowed myself from the start).
At the beginning of summer (remeber, when it was really hot), I bought a bikini, which was kinda nescessairy. I hadn't bought a new bathing suit for ages and the old one was litteraly falling apart.
It's from modcloth and hence quite expensive, I saw it in spring and thought, "oh, if it was on sale, I could maybe afford it". BAM, some weeks later it was indeed on sale, and I couldn't resist anymore. It's so beautiful and worth every penny. The colour! The tiny (embroidered!) anchors! And it fits like a glove. It's great the top and the bottom are sold seperately, so you can make sure to get the right size. Honestly, if I could, I would spend sooo much money on modcloth, they sell so many amazing things *sigh*
But that's not the only thing I purchased. Those who know me know I have a big big weakness for shoes. So despite all, these are the shoes I got so far this year:
T-straps by Deichmann.
You probably spotted them already in my outfit post last week. I bought them when I went to Hamburg with my family during Ascension and realized I had forgotten to bring some elegant shoes with me... we went to see the Lion King Musical and I couldn't possibly wear chucks! Back at home I found them to be not only very comfortable, but also astonishing versatile. The colour is somewhat beige-greyish and goes with almost everything, not to mention the cute style and convenient heel height, so I'm wearing them quite often and didn't regret this purchase once (^.^)
High heels in light pink by Pin Up Couture.
This brand makes the most adorable shoes, and despite the ridicoulously high heels they are not that hard to walk in. I ordered them after I had sold some things over my etsy shop and didn't know what to do with all that money, haha.
I've been wearing a lot of casual classic lolita/mori/whatever style this summer, and these shoes just went perfectly with my outfits without making my feet melt (I'm not a summer person, I despise the heat).
Mint Lolita shoes from Antaina.
I ordered them on qutieland last year, but they have a looooong producing and shipping duration, so they only arrived in march or something. They're very comfortable and I love mint anyways, so no regrets again (^.^)
