I just received my new Antaina Tea Party Shoes! Yayness!
If only they could have arrived in time for Hyper Japan :c
Oh well. They are so cute though! Very very excited to have my first pair!

I got them in pink matte and in the flat heel style. I'll post more pictures at a later date. 

(My cuts don't seem to be working at the moment, so I'll add more when I get that working n-n;)



Shoes: 4.9 /5

I love them SO much! They are really really cute, they are really soft and comfortable,
and they have those pop-on and off snap things. This is really good because you only
ever have to do up your buckles once, reducing damage from messing about with straps, 
and also reducing the time it takes to put them on and take them off. 
You can wear them with the front straps crossed or straight,
and you can remove the ankle strap. The bows, however, are not removable.
The bows on the back of the shoes are a little crooked and weird looking but I don't find this a huge problem.


Shipping: 4.9 /5
Ordered on 2011-06-26. Received on 2011-08-09.
This is about two weeks after the making time,
but I understand they need time to process the order and for shipping.
It would have been nice to have an estimated delivery time
but they gave a tracking number so I was happy with that.
The packaging was very crushed in transit but luckily the shoes were not damaged.
It came in a shoebox, the shoes were in individual plastic bag things.
The box was in a bag as well with the shipping details attached to it in a plastic wallet.
While I anxiously wait for the money to pile up (and do other useless lurking), I got a strange idea. A parody of Ke$ha's Tik Tok!
Here's what I have so far:


Wake up in the morning feeling like Malice Mizer
(Hey wassup boys?)
Grab my apron I'm out the door to chill it with my loan adviser
(We own this party!)
Before I leave, check EGL to see who's buying what
'Cause when I leave for the night I'm gonna buy some stuff


I'm talking mary janes on my toes toes
Petticoat under my clothes clothes
Boys blowing up our phones, phones
Tea-sipping, check out that Kanon CD
Group ordering on AP
Pulling up socks to the... KNEEEEE...


Don't stop, button up,
Just don't make your collars pop!
?
What's the August theme?
Pressing F5 till my hand's numb
Oh-wo-oh-oh Oh wo-oh-oh


Don't stop, bows on top,
Just don't make your collars pop!
Tonight, imma fight,
Then stalk In the Starlight
What's the August theme?
Pressing F5 till my hand's numb
Oh-wo-oh-oh Oh wo-oh-oh


This dress is really tight and I've got to pee
Ain't got no money in my pocket but I want that OP!
All the kodonas lining up 'cause they hear we got shirring
But we kick them in the face if they don't wear Baby


I'm talking ?
Ranting on those Cosmates, Mates
Ripping up Raschel Lace
Brand shopping, ?
?
Flaming on Lolita Se...CREEETTSSSS


Don't stop, button up,
Just don't make your collars pop!

 Hi,

I don't know if somebody already posted about this, I searched the memories but couldn't find anything. If this is old news, please feel free to delete my post.

I've just sent an email to Mai because I needed her service and she got back to me almost immediately and told me that she's no longer running her shopping service :( She said she's too busy and has no time to bid and/or go shopping. When I asked her if it was permanent or temporary, she said she thinks it's permanent. I'm so sad! 
Obviously, I like Lolita. ( Otherwise I wouldn't be here, right? )
I also really really like Ska music and the styles that are usually linked to Ska. Like the rudeboy and skinhead styles that originated in Jamaica ( just clarifying just in case there are people here who automatically think of racism when they hear "skinhead"; I will admit I used to D: ) and the mod style that originated in England.
Now I don't know about how you all would feel about a coordinate including a white, black or maybe checkered black and white blouse with a cute black and white JSK ( or perhaps a black and/or white skirt with suspenders! )  under a bomber jacket, with fishnet stockings and Dr. Martens. As much as I'd like to love that picture, it doesn't look quite right in my head.
So what do you all think? How could this idea work? COULD this idea work?
( Not only am I interested in your opinions, but I may use your comments as advice for the future ^_^ Not to mention I'm quite curious if there are any other skankin' lolis out there! )

Hello Everyone,
hope you're all doing well. : )  After summoning up the courage, I have decided to do a small post, asking all of you for your opinions. I'm a very beginner Lolita (I started just last month! ^^;;) and I've done a little bit of research before purchasing any dresses.







 
Con-crit is much appreciated! ^^Collapse )
I've been a loli for years.Years. Even before being a lolita, I just loved to browse brand sites, which my favorite was Mary Magdalene. Even now I enjoy browsing it. But...Everytime I look up at the dresses they're always soldout! Always! Andh they're so hard to find second-hand...
Is Mary a very smallbrand?I've never seen a picture of a MM store...Someone who went to Japan, does it exist? Or they just do online business?
A light, please!

On Sunday 31-8 www.mfashion.eu  (me) organised a Lolita fashion show.
A lot of other lolita's came to watch the show, it was a amazingly fun day!

Here is a picture Hennie Ummels made of some of the girls.
Spot all those photographers in the back.


Hennie Ummels also filmed the whole fashion show, it is 27 minutes long.
So I recommend getting yourself a nice beverage before you start watching.Video behind the cut!Collapse )
 

In my blog I have some more pictures of the day:

Came across this while following Rue La La: A photo of Zoey Deschanel wearing Miu Miu.

Except... it looks like something I've seen the brands do.  Veryveryvery similar.  Just can't put my foot on the brand and the design.  I just know I've seen it done before.



Anyone want to share brand designs that could have inspired this piece?

So long story short, I too ordered a meta LP a couple weeks ago. The problem was, I had it sent to my dad's house rather than to me, since at the time my address was in limbo. And since my dad lives about 250 miles away from me, just far enough to make weekly trips inconvenient, I was unable to retrieve my LP till today!

Follow me to see what I got!Collapse )


I also received my Night Fairy Fantasia, once again in the same situation as my Meta LP. I got the jsk, bag, otk socks, and headband *o yes, the whole coordinate :3*

Night Fairy Fantasia GOOOOOOOO!Collapse )


Thank you so much for looking, even though its so late. I would have posted this sooner if I had received my stuff sooner. Next time I promise :P

Upon being commissioned by my sister's friend to make her a cosplay, I realized that since I have some extra money again (I was out of work for quite a while) I'd try actually using one of the patterns from the English G&L Bibles. In two days, I made this skirt, and had fabric left over to make a simple matching bag! Excuse the bad cell phone pics and messy room please~

Pictures!Collapse )
