2014-07 Picnic in Ceske Budejovice

The lolita fashion community in our city fell apart during the year. Someone moved, stopped dressing up, or whatever, I don't even know.. people just went silent and didn't come anymore. It's just me and Tairesia left now. So we decided to throw us a picnic!



I can't walk very far by now, as Im expecting a baby in a few weeks, so we made the picnic in the nearby park. The trick is to fluff the petticoat to the sides and behind, the belly takes the front! :D


       Dress: Angelic Pretty Precocious Lady                       Dress: Innocent World
       Blouse: Anna House
       Shoes: Bodyline

2014-06 Meetup in Brno

In June 2014, I asked my friends in Brno for a small meetup. It will be the last one for me for a good while. I picked my most sack dress, Angelic Pretty Dreamy Horoscope JSK in navy, and paired it with navy An*Tai*Na tea parties, pink Bodyline bolero, TaoBao OTKs, and a loads of pastel offbrand accessories.



Amai came in Angelic Pretty's Sweet Cream House apron skirt, it has such a wonderful print and she was so cute in it! Kiki took a cherry printed high-waisted Bodyline skirt.



Oh wow I got a nice present from Kiki! It was so thoughtful of her. Yes that's right, I'm expecting a baby and won't be able to attend meetups for a good while, as I live in different city. Actually, on the meetup photo I'm already in 7th month ^.^ I went from normal dresses to high-waistdresses to sack dresses, frills all the way! :)

2013: My second frilly year

Looking back at 2013, it was definetly a year of meetups! I travelled around the country, and even abroad once, to get to know lolitas all around. I always try to dress in my better dresses for meetups! 




I tried to take more photos at home. Again, it didn't go well. I used iPad Mini and althought the photos from meetups taken outside in daylight were fine, there was not enough light for the tiny lens indoors, and mirrors I used were old. The photos were dark and blurry. The best of the bad tries..




I started to get more into photography, using my old camera Panasonic DMC-FZ7, and got first decent results.



My wardrobe got much bigger, though still in the old furniture. I promised myself a new one for next year.


* The rest of the images are recent, I had neither the skill not the camera in 2013 *

I bought some more pink stuff: fantastic Bodyline bolero, a cute TaoBao cutsew and finally got proper sweet lolita wristcuffs, with removable bows which can be swapped for another pair!


I stocked up on badly missing essentials: An offwhite Anna House blouse, white Bodyline blouse L108, the compulsory Metamorphose luckypack bloomers and a hoard of cotton OTKs which turned out to be 100% wool and warm, oh nevermind I tried.



I made a huge mistake with replicas, thinking sweet brands like Angelic Pretty are too expensive to ever own for me. I really love AP sweet prints, but didn't know if I will dare to wear them. Well, at least I didn't buy them new.

 

I also bought more shoes than my only pair of Bodyline's cream shoes, and some OTKs to them too. Their price was 33 USD a pair plus 30 USD shipping (plus PP fees, the OTKs, and the customs, aggrh), and although they serve me well, nowadays I would definetly search elsewhere.



I splurged on brand, BtSSB Floral Lace JSK, IW Bouquet Doll OP, BtSSB Tartan scalloped JSK



But also found a cheap brand BtSSB cutsew OP for sleepwear for the sweetest of dreams... (drifting lifestyle and brandwhore, am I not? :D) and hunted down my dream dress Marriage d'Amour after half a year of searching on auctions.

I dared to venture into black colorway (and found it's not my thing!)



And got better ready for colder weather, buying some sweaters and turtlenecks. Still missing a coat though!



Lastly, I got my first paper publication with lolita fashion pictures. Without the tote.. and I can't speak japanese, and you read it from back forward, which feels really weird.. but I have it and its mine :3

2013-12 Christmas meetup in Ostrava

On 21th December, right before Christmas, I visited Ostrava lolitas community, with lovely Domi and Silvia, the sweetest lolitas we have around here :3 Again we stayed at the cosy small cake shop we visited in summer.



Domi, Silvia, me, Niki, Reni.
We gave each other small christmas presents!

 

I took my old Panasonic camera with me to take pictures, but being winter and dim lights inside, they turned to be quite grainy. It's frustrating, I have to figure out how to take good photos! Silvia and Domi are such a cute lolitas, though :3



Silvia is wearing BtSSB My Friend Usakumya Judy JSK and Domi is wearing AP Wonder Party skirt together with Anna House blouse (I have the same one :D). I fell in love with Wonder Party in sax.. its such a pleasant dusty blue color!
