New Year New Haul

2024-01-07

I received 2 dresses this last week.. here they are!


Mary Magdalene - Fleur de Lys (oops sorry, I wish I had noticed the wrinkle on the bottom.)

Wire Head - Gobelin JSK set

Mint is one of my favorite lolita colors! So I was really happy to receive Fleur de Lys in the mail. I will be selling my Delice Fleur to a friend! I also have a soft spot for gobelin. I know it's more technically old school... but classic lolita = old school? I mean it hasn't changed a lot in how it has looked over the years. At least the version of classic that I wear.

I have a small comment about the Wire Head dress. It's unlined, but literal couch fabric! So it's a little uncomfortable to wear. I have another gobelin dress by them which is a summer cotton (?) dress so unlined makes more sense.

Not much to report on this work day. I took my mom to the dentist and in striving in my goal to become more of a daily lolita, I wondered if I should wear lolita. I opted not to for such a quick errand. It did end up taking her 2 hours! I didn't realize people spend that long (on their first appointment with a new dentist). I had plenty of time to go to a cafe to work. Lolita dresses sadge to not be worn!




Meeting Other Mary Magdalene Fans

2024-01-07

Today I went to meet other Mary Magdalene fans! I met with Tokkigo and beutalbaer.

I twinned with tokkigo, but didn't wear Mary Magdalene :sweat: But we wore one of my favorite Innocent World dresses, Anniversary Rose! I actually felt uncomfortable wearing so little Mary Magdalene hahahaha. Somehow it feels like I'm betraying my favorite brand ._.

This coordinate is a good representation of early 2010's when classic lolita was more popular. It feels weird wearing this classic... I don't feel like I suit bold colors and I also feel like it doesn't match my personality? Like it feels like it is for refined, confident women. Which is the opposite of what I am ^_____^;;

JSK, Blouse, Socks: Innocent World
Rosette: Mary Magdalene
Shoes: Fluevog
Purse: vintage



It's tokkigo's birthday soon so I made her a rosette to match some of her dresses! I am a beginner with crafts so please be patient with me.. I remember when I first started lolita, handmade was much more encouraged. It was a lot harder to obtain brand items back then. After I made this rosette, I decided to put in another order for lace and ribbon to make more!

Here are some solo pictures :)

P.S. Having another low self esteem day.. I'll try my best to remain positive, but sometimes you need to let go of the facade ;_;
