current mood: busy
FYI - I do not look or, dress like this.
Well I’m packing my bags for America, I’m not coming back until August 1st. (Just in time for NomCon) I can’t wait to meet some other Lolitas! Unfortunately, due hot weather I don’t think I’ll get a chance to wear anything too cute over in NJ, I’ll probably spend most of my time in my new Janzten swimsuit! I wonder, are there any Lolita-friendly swimsuits, closest I’ve ever seen is retro stuff. Also, I wish there was more seashore-themed Lolita gear, not just nautical, but old-timey boardwalk themes. I think seahorses and seashells are a very underutilized motif.
I have my outfits planned for all three days of, any tips/comments appreciated (But I may not get to reply for a few days):
So the first day I’m going to be on a 3-4 hour train or bus ride- it’s a little impractical to wear a petticoat, etc. on this long of a journey, so I was thinking I’d just wear my little sailor dress. I hope no one thinks I’m cosplaying, not that there’s anything wrong with that. (I know it’s not very Lolita, but I LOVE nautical themes – I watch way too much FlapJack!And, y'know we do live on an island)
The second day I’ll be a little more on the sweet side. You know, I don’t see a lot of yellow in Lolita fashion. I hope this works out…I still need shoes to match his one.Think I'll go simply with my hair, maybe a bow or two.
The last day I’m planning on wearing this, with a little tweed jacket. I had this one made in brown. I think a cameo-inspired up-do might suit perhaps?This is actually the first type of Lolita dress I fell in love with, and I’m only getting it now! So much wasted time…
All I have to do now is accessorize, and that should be fairly easy to do in the States, I think. I really need to buy more separates though, so I can expand my wardrobe easier. I have a load of nice blouses with no skirts to match – what’s wrong with me???
*Disclaimer – I know I have a lot of f+f, and some people wouldn’t consider it the best of what Lolita fashion has to offer, but I like they’re website, and their prices. Also, as long as there is no hideous cheap lace I’m pretty content. I do plan on owning some more brand stuff one day…
