Inspirations: Milkyfawn

Milkyfawn alias Alanah May from Sydney, likes sweets, chocolate, and Rilakkuma. Her outfits scheme was mostly pink, brown and beige. She had a bit of a hoarding problem with lolita but managed to solve it by selling half her wardrobe. She hurriedly left lolita at the end of 2014 (aged 22) to instead pursue otome fashion. 

I love her style and her blog in general. I think she's everything a lolita could aspire to be. My friend Yuki was lucky enough to know Milkyfawn when she was still a lolita and made an interview with her!

She blogged about events, holiday, unboxing, purchases, meets, food, her youtube video links. Just your average lot, but she is such a darling and has such a distinct style! My favorite blog posts of hers are her room tour, wardrobe post from 2014, her makeup and skincare, 30 day lolita challenge and people who inspire her lolita style! She also did a magazine interview, compared Sheep garden real to replica dress and wrote a guide on how to order from Angelic Pretty using Tenso :) I also loved her Scavenger hunt ideas!

Milkyfawn also starred in a couple of Deerstalker Picture videos. They did really funny The Secret Life of Lolita - part 1, part 2, part 3 and Bloopers, Mean Lolitas (and its behind the scenes). Milkyfawn taped her AP Melty Ribbon Chocolate unboxing and AP Loyal Rosette unboxing, told us how to pose in lolita and made a circle lens tutorial. She brought us to her room, played Cards Against Lolitas, and addressed her hoarding problems.

I really miss reading her blog. Do you?

2013-06 Meetup at city carnival in Pilsen

The Pilsen lolita fashion community set up a meetup at the city's carnival fair. It was just two hours of travel away so I joined in! The carnival happened on the main square of the city with Cathedral of St. Bartolomeus.of the photos.

My journey started while it was still chilly, I opted for a warmer outfit and  removed layers as it got hotter. I didn't want to risk any brand in the crowds equipped by lemonade cups and cotton candy, so I pulled out my replica of Milky Planet.

Dress: Dream of Lolita
Bolero: Bodyline         
OTKs: Metamorphose 
Shoes: Bodyline           

People in masks walked between the public, and there were stands with goods, a lot of food and drink stands, and activities for children. The sun was mercilessly hot though and I was so very glad I carry a parasol on regular basis!

When the temperature went above 30C, I gave up on the OTKs and created my probably most cringeworthy outfit ever with socks and spare bulky cotton wristcuffs. Ouch. Although it was likely my worst outfit ever, the last photo was still the best moment of the whole festival. I was so happy to come across someone in costume of Geralt from Rivia, a hero from fantasy book serie Wiedzmin (Witcher) by polish author Sapkowski! =^.^=

Innocent World's Bouquet Doll OP

Innocent World's Bouquet Doll OP in beige x black is certainly very classical piece and not at all a sweet lolita substyle. Although the dress is cotton, the removable princess sleeves are from a chiffon-like, wrinkle free material. All the lace is soft and high quality Innocent World is famous for.

OTKs: TaoBao                                           
Shoes: Bodyline                                         

Detail on the princess sleeves. In the end I decided not to use the wristcuffs
or pearl bracelets, as they looked so out of place with princess sleeves.

Magical Cosmetics coord!

The Magical cosmetics skirt in brown from Bodyline is another unworn piece from my wardrobe, featuring a print slightly reminding me of Angelic Pretty's Rose Toilette serie..


I tried to make it work in this coord with brown t-shirt, haha! Seriously, it's my only brown lolita item. It has side zipper and loops for hanging it, which is a nice touch. Also a removable front bow which was too big for my taste.

 Skirt: Bodyline's Magical Cosmetics
OTKs: Bodyline                               
Shoes: An*Tai*Na

2013-06 Meetup in Ostrava

I really looked forward to meeting Ostrava comm! The comm is mostly led by these two beautiful lolitas and good friends, Domi on the left in her own handmade and handpainted dress, and Silvia in black x pink outfit. I wore a pink AP dress, but I felt like such an ugly potato beside these two!

We met in a wonderful, small cake shop, complete with an oen couch and an assortment of sweets!

Of course I couldn't resist ordering a sundae :3

Once again with the sweet Domi! It's such a pity Ostrava is so far for me, 
I'd love to hang out with the comm :3 Until next time, then!

Black BtSSB cutsew OP outfit.

Today in black, although that's color I wear rarely. The BtSSB Cherry patterned mesh cutsew OP is from an easy to wear, soft cutsew material, highwaisted and very comfortable. I went really for the comfort side. The dress has a cute ribbon instead of waist ties, to be ties in front. I paired it with Innocent World's socks with torchon lace and cute little bows. The headbow is a present I got four years ago :3

Goodbye, Love Jewelry skirt

This was my Bodyline skirt L346, Love Jewelry print in pink. It has soft pink ruffle on the hem and wonderful, crips print which can be used in both sweet and classic coordinates and it was one of my first items!

Despite that, I never wore it, as I simply don't have red items to match the print. I'm such a packrat I haven't sold a single lolita item the last six years.. time to change!

This skirt was the first to go. I took a few last photos to remember it by.
