Outfit post - JeJ dress

It just so conveniently happened that I was going to the theatre on the day when I received the JeJ dress, so of course I wore it.

I took these photos after I came back home and it was a little windy outside, hence the disheveled state of my hair.

JeJ review

I received my Juliette et Justine dress yesterday.

I bought this dress, La broderie de la fleur, in black, size 1. I grabbed the last one in this colour and size, and as you can see on JeJ website, it's now completely sold out.

I got hit with customs. Now this entry would normally be filled with f-words to express my deep-rooted hatred for the customs bureau, but I'm too tired for that. I just want to say that I hate them. They don't do anything for me. I pay the shops because I get my dresses from them. I pay the post because they ship the items to me. The customs bureau doesn't participate in these transactions and they don't provide any services useful for me, yet they kept the parcel and would not give it to me, its rightful owner, until I gave them 110 euros. You know what it should be called? Extortion.

Anyway, let's move on to the dress itself.

Outfit post - UnsraW gig

Yesterday I went to see UnsraW in Parlament club, Gdańsk. It was amazing and I'll probably post a live report on my livejournal tomorrow.

Here's my outfit from the gig. It was my first time wearing punk lolita.

I know this one's super bright, but originally the whole outfit looked like a black blob in this photo, and editing it like this was the only way to make some of the details visible.

Dear hair, I hate you.

Does anyone have any suggestions how to curl your hair?

I tried everything, but to no avail.

That's as curly as it can get with hot rollers. Surprisingly, it stayed like this for a few hours. A new record, I guess. If only I knew how to make it stay curly for a whole day. Or better yet, how to actually make it really curly, not wavy.

Outfit post - in the woods

I looked at some mori girl blogs in the morning, and at some dolly kei pictures and videos, and it made me want to go to the forest to pick up colourful leaves.

So I did just that.

Outfit post

I woke up in a rather cranky mood today. And what's the best way to make yourself feel better? Dress up!

And because I'm a really indecisive person I'll show you 5 pictures of the exact same outfit.
