and I SO wish I had pictures.
Yesterday, my boyfriend and I celebrated 4 years together. We woke up in the same bed together (which is rare because he usually sleeps on the cough - I'm violent in my sleep) neither of us wanted breakfast as we had feasted on a deep-fried party platter before going to see Pan's Labyrinth Friday night with our friend, so we had a nice candle-lit shower with the pink rose petal soaps my mom gave me for Christmas. (Why can't I find my Beatrix Potter soaps?!) I got dressed in black socks, black bloomers, black blouse, and a dark red skirt (thanks Amanda! Can't remember your LJ name, sorry -_-) curled my hair, used rose perfume, accessories were pearl necklace, 2 silver rings my bf bought me also a charm bracelet from him, and when I was outside I had an off-white scarf that looks like a ringlet curl, a cute black hat I got from The Bay - it has a bow on it! Also because it's still cold in Saskatchewan, a long white furry coat that was unzipped in the bottom so it wouldn't smush my petti too much. And black ankle boots (I know I know - I didn't feel like dealing with having snowy mary jane feet).
We went out shopping for a bit, picked up some things we needed for our pets, went to browse pretty gift shops and flower shops, picked up Star Wars Lego for Game Cube XD and also got some Laura Secord chocolate. Which is the best. (A link for my non-canadian friends! http://www.laurasecord.ca/
)I love how they put the little cameo chocolate in the middle of every box, it's so yummy! The lady there LOVED my purse - it's a little round lunchbox with a gold clasp&hinge, a peach handle, and a print of a flower fairy painting on either side, and little... "bedsheet" floral print on the side/bottom.
Then we came home, played video games, watched 50 first dates, ate pizza (Shh! Pizza is very loli!) I changed into my lolita nightgown I commissioned from ITS ^__^ had english toffee tea as a bedtime snack, and fell asleep snuggling Wes my teddybear (hehehe *lies through my keys*)
So I just thought I'd share. My boyfriend is in no way the male counterpart of a lolita. He's all about black metal and industrial but loves the way lolita clothing looks on me :) I'm just sharing how our date went, since Valentine's day is coming and maybe someone got an idea of how to be lolita on a date and not piss off your date ^_^;
