Hey :DIt hasn't been a long time since my last haul, I know, but in my defense there's to say that my hauls are always pretty moderate.
*sighs* And to think I was saving money for a laptop... and the few money I had left for other stuff, I had to spend it in Loverdose Tattoo. But then I bumped into Tally Weijl while I was at the mall and... it happened.
I'd gone to the mall because I had to buy clothes for the pranks me and my friends made for my cousin's graduation (she got her master degree in philology), and well, I got them, but I also came home with three new items for me.
Two of them were needed: I really, really need basic clothing, so no one can say these two things are not going to be useful when I'll be in uni.
I can't say the same about this beauty, though.
This one I really didn't need, but for God's sake LOOK AT THAT PRINT. I just can't resist flock prints.
I have absolutely no idea when and where I'm going to wear it: it requires no bra and no undershirt, since it is partially transparent on the front and completely transparent on the back; summer has just ended, it's a little too cold now.
But look at it. Just look at it. It's beautiful. And I love what it does to my waistline - shops definitely need more A-line clothes.
And, as if this wasn't enough... a friend of mine was selling a classic lolita jsk since she had bought two identical dresses by mistake. I had seen it on her at the Harajuku Fashion Walk that took place in Venice some months ago and I had loved it (click here to see it: she's the one on the right), so when I noticed she was selling it I immediately reserved it XD.
*sighs* This is exactly the kind of classic/country floral dress I was looking for. It's perfect.
Now all I have to do is figure out what I'm going to match it with, since I don't have shoes, or tights, or blouses, or a petticoat, or ANYTHING that can go with pastels. But since I'm growing fonder and fonder of this style, I guess I'll just have to buy something, like a white blouse and white tights.
My problem is with shoes.
I don't like typical lolita shoes like these:
They're cute, but they're not for me. I don't want to look like a chid - actually, I only use mary janes and poofy petticoats when I'm all dressed in black, which kind of compensates, doesn't it?
I prefer this kind of shoes, with a narrower heel:
Except, of course, these ones don't come in colours that might match my clothes.
I don't have a clue what to do with that dress XD. I don't want a frilly look, so I want to avoid this kind of stuff:
Instead, I think I should aim for this:
But then I keep wondering: hey, is there too much white in my outfit? Does brown look good with my jsk? Would my legs look fat with pastel colours? And so on.
I guess it'll take time for me to learn how to create a good classic lolita coordinate :D I've spent too much time in my total black comfort zone and now I have to learn to match stuff again XD
Well, I guess that would be all for today... thank you for reading and have a nice week :D*
