A few days ago I said I'd post pictures of the cherry-print outfit I made for my cousin's graduation, so here they are!
I suck at taking pictures of myself. My room isn't as messy as it looks, honestly!!
...and of course it came out all blurry and stupid. Thus, there are no photos of me looking nice before I got all swimmy and messed up my hair and makeup.
But look at that beautiful bathroom! XD And the mirror is actually clean!
I took the rest of these after I got home that night, so I"m a)tired, b)not wearing any makeup and c) rockin' the pool-hair. If you just ignore everything from the neck up, though, you'll be fine. XD
Haha I"m such a tard. This is how i wore it to the party: no blouse, no petticoat, and minimal accessories. I didn't want to be too...distracting -though of cousre there ended up being a whole ruckus among my relatives over the fact that I made the outfit the night before. Most of them didn't even know i could sew. XD
Is it just me or do flat shoes always make one's feet look...strangely wide?
The back photo: In which Erin poses like a weaboo and appears to have linebacker shoulders. -_-;;
To demonstrate the potential "proper lolita-ness" of this outfit, I put on a blouse and petticoat. still too hot/lazy for socks, though. XD
I look like I'm wearing lipliner. O.o I don't even own, or know how to properly use, lipliner. Lawl my hair is a disaster.
I ARE SITTIN LYKE A PROPUR LAYDEE. Noes, messy closet in the background! But hey, at least my bed is made. XD
I own two brand items, both of which are meta totes. One is this red "lucky chance" tote that I carried that day because it happend to match my outfit perfectly (and fit my bathing suit/ towel/ poolside shoes/ sunblock of doom for pasty skin). The other is my pink meta tote, which you can see hanging on the hook-thing there on the left-along with my oh-so-stylish work hat. Panera for the lose.
Oh no, it seems something terribly exciting has happened off-camera! This is a thrifted blouse (the only black one I currently own, until i get my arse in gear and make myself a better one) and I need to add another button. It has this cool ruffled collar, though! Isn't that cute?
Lame artsy shot to show the pretty filigree heart necklace my aunt gave me <3 I look like i have ten miles of neck and a big honking chin. O.o I hate you, bone structure.
Skirt detail pics:
I <3 the black eyelet soooooo much. I got it on ebay for uber-cheap. Five yards for five bucks! IGood-quality lace that long is normally mad expensive. The trim above the scallops is satin ribbon that I threaded through black cluny lace...it took so damn long. -_-;; but I think it looks better than the lace alone would have, eh?
Outfit rundowny thing:
Cherry top and skirt, petticoat, all me.
Black blouse, thrifted
Red ribbon flats, Payless
Red tote bag, Metamorphose
Black polkadot bow hairties, Claire's
Black and red bead bracelet, I have no idea
That be all! Please to be telling me what you think. <3
X-posted cause I'm cool like that.
EDIT: it has been pointed out ot me that the skirt shape looks a bit odd with a petticoat. And I agree, it really does. Unfortunatley i didn' thave enough fabric left to do a 3x waist-to-hem measurement that I usually do to ensure accurate poof, but because I wasn't planning to wear it with a petticoat anyway I figured it was okay. ^_^
