brb, I'll be living in mud for a week

I've been debating whether I should make this a pure lolita blog or not, since I don't dress exclusively in lolita.

In any case, next week I'll do something totally non-loli: go to a festival called
Peace & Love, here in Sweden.

Other people see festivals as an excuse to be filthy and dress like a slob without anyone caring, I see festivals as an excuse to dress even more crazy / cool without anyone caring!

I made a detachable hairbow for extra coolness, it will probably not last through all the concerts etc even though I drenched it in hairspray but whatever.

see u when I get home!

Part of the purchases

that I've made lately

♡ Baby, the Stars Shine Bright crown purse
♡ A dark colored straw hat.
♡ A light colored straw hat. lol
♡ Baby, the Stars Shine Brigh Beading ribbon lace OTKs
♡ Innocent World Rose line OTKS
♡ Offbrand socks, it has pink roses and beige dots and ruffles on the edge, cute for summer lolita! I always feel like a boss discovering stuff like this in "normal" stores

I was supposed to get Lauretta Rose JSK from Innocent World along with the IW and Baby socks. But, it turned out the webshop I bought from didn't have it in stock, even though it was up for sale on their site >.<

Had to include one more picture of this, I've been wanting it for so long

♡ Star pin/brooch from Bonjour Honey!
I love this because it has multicolored pearls

♡ 4 Angelic Pretty pins (prints are Honey Cake, Sheep Garden, Marchen Ribbon and Aqua Princess)

♡ The bimonthly eyelash haul. Lol

Upper left corner are most definitely a replica of Dolly Wink no. 1 - Dolly Sweet. I'm not sure what I was thinking with these since I wasn't that crazy about the original. I mean they were good but I actually prefer the lashes I got from Diamond Lash in my last package. (you know I love you anyway Tsubasa)

♡ Topshop tie-up wedges with floral print
♡ Red 50s style T-bar flats, bought from eBay

A literal dream dress

Chemise a la Reve by Candy Violet. It really is a dream and the ultimate dress for summer I think!

I was about to order this when it was released last year. Then I read a negative review on egl, saying it doesn't look at all like the picture or something, which made me stay away. Then this year's summer came around and I still couldn't get it out of my head!! I went on the Candy Violet website and..... found out she's stopped making them *sob*

Luckily I managed to find a girl on egl_comm_sales who wanted to sell hers!
I bought it

My expectations are not high but I hope it will be wearable at least!

The dress is an interpretation of Chemise a la Reine, a type of dress worn and made popular by Marie Antoinette when she resided at her country house Petit Trianon.

"I want something more... simple. Natural. To wear in the garden"

Some kind of himegyaru gothic lolita

Hey don't think I have stopped blogging, in fact, I have more inspiration than ever right now.

Also I can't stop after like a month, that would be totally ridiculous!

Final projects in school got the best of me but my summer holidays recently began! And I have fallen in love with country loli style and have some vision in my head of myself in it on countless picnics this summer! All of a sudden I crave straw hats and bonnets, how lovely!

And I've been shopping like craazy, at the moment I have a pretty decent amount of items on their way to me.

And last Friday I went out partying in some kind of himegyaru/gothic lolita inspired mix (I love mixing styles )

Jumperskirt: Rose Melody
Lace gloves: H&M
Hair accessories: H&M, Chocomint
Bracelet: Chocomint
Lace tights: H&M
Shoes: Secret Shop

Usually I don't go clubbing in lolita because some jerk would end up spilling beer on my brand (or I would do it myself lol).
Also it's highly inappropriate getting drunk in sweet lolita. Lolitas should only drink tea.

But Saga was going to wear her new velveteen Angelic Pretty OP and I would of course feel horribly ugly and underdressed not matching her!

I'm wearing my new MintyMix wig btw. I love it! The quality is super and it's almost like an already curled duplicate of my own hair!
