2013/12 Christmas meetup in Ostrava
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
