Lolita meetup

Yesterday we had a little meetup in Szymbark in northern Poland. We were supposed to have a sleigh ride, a so-called kulig. Kulig is a traditional form of entertainment in which aristocrats would ride horse-pulled sleighs from manor to manor, and the host of every manor house would prepare some entertainment for the participants. Of course nowadays it's only a ride, as no one lives in manor houses anymore.

Our ambitious plans were destroyed by the weather. Not only it didn't snow - the ground was too damp to have a campfire. In the end we only had a short carriage ride through the forest and dinner in a local restaurant.

There were supposed to be eight of us but three girls didn't show up. One sprained her ankle but the other two girls didn't even let us know that they would not be coming. Not the the most polite thing to do if the price depends on the number of participants.

So I went back to Poland to spend two weeks of my Christmas break here.

This is my Christmas Eve outfit.

OP: Moi meme Moitie
necklace: Bijou Brigitte
shoes: nine west

I know that the shoes don't really match, but we don't wear shoes inside, and my best shoes are in Japan anyway, so I just put something on cause I looked silly without any.

I didn't wear a petticoat cause I look big enough in this dress even without one. I tried it on and it really didn't look good.

And this is my today's outfit.

JSK: Alice and the Pirates
blouse: random thing borrowed from my mum cause I don't have any lolita blouses here
hair accessory: handmade
tights: Leg Avenue
shoes: TUK

And that's all for now. Merry Christmas, everyone!

This is the outfit that I'm still actually wearing.

Lolita shopping and the new Moitie print

I went on a small shopping trip today to Marui One and Laforet. I had one main goal in mind and a few minor ones. Unfortunately, I spent too much money on the main one, so only one of my minor goals could be achieved.

This is what I wore:
blouse: Moitie
skirt: Metamorphose
everything else: random shops

Of course it's cold in December, so I wore my BPN coat. When I went into the BPN shop in Laforet the shop assistant had the most adorable reaction. She admired how I looked in the coat and thanked me profusely for shopping there XD

This time I didn't buy anything at BPN though. Instead I chose Moitie and Atelier Pierrot.
My main goal, the new Jewellery print onepiece in black:

I really liked the other colourways, too, especially green and red. However, I wasn't sure I liked the gold print. Of course it looks beautiful but it makes me think of Christmas so much that I don't think I would wear it in other seasons. If the print was silver (like on the black dress) or black I would have chosen the red dress.

I tried on the skirt too but the high waist seems to be cut a little strangely and it wasn't very flattering on me. The OP, however, fits like a dream.

And this is the minor goal of my shopping trip, an Atelier Pierrot blouse.
I had my eyes set on it for a while. I decided that if I have some money left by the end of the month I would buy it. I did have enough money, so now I'm its proud owner.

h.NAOTO Sweet Lolota Christmas Party

I went to this party feeling a little uncertain. I've never been to a brand organized party before. How will I talk to people when my Japanese is so poor? Will they look down on me for not wearing h.NAOTO from head to toes? Or just for being a foreigner? Will there be other foreigners there?

As it turned out, I had no reason to worry. It was a really fun event and I'm glad I went there and got to meet Hirooka Naoto himself.

At the party, right before leaving. My friend is wearing a full h.NAOTO outfit, but I'm only wearing one item by this brand.

We were supposed to bring small gifts and exchange them. This is what I got: a sheep-shaped hot water bottle XD It's so cute!

Some post-party purikura with kitzune from LiveJournal.

And finally some more-or-less clear outfit shots taken after I came back home.

Outfit rundown:
cutsaw: h.NAOTO Frill
skirt: Metamorphose
tights: Leg Avenue
shoes: Innocent World
hair accessory: handmade
necklace: I am

New items; Christmas and other randomness

Let me start chronologically.

1. Here are some small items I bought... well, a while ago.

A Shappo phone strap, Majolica Majorca eye pencil, Claire's hair pins and a barrette from Paris Kid's. The hair accessories were bought especially for the JeJ outfit I posted some days ago.

2. An h.NAOTO Frill cutsaw for a Christmas tea party at their shop.

3. A care package from my mum: a bag full of sweets and Inglot makeup. Right in time for St Nicholas' Day! I got it on December 6, in the morning. Perfect timing!

Triple brown eyeshadow set, purple nail polish, reddish nail polish, caramel coloured duo lip gloss and a black eye pencil. One can never have too many eye pencils. I use them up so quickly... 

4. Moitie items from Closet Child. A blouse for 5900 yen and a headdress for 1800 yen. Unfortunately the lace on the blouse turned out to be a completely different colour than the print on Silent Moon so I can't wear them together... Which also means that I have nothing to wear this blouse with.

5. Lastly, a Christmas gift I got today from my 9 year old student. It's a hair tie with a dusty pink flower.

Sito Magus live

Actually, it was a Lacriox Despheres shusai but to me Sito Magus stole the show.

I wore a very simple aristo outfit. The dress has a clean design but it always looks fancy anyway because it's so long and flowy. That's why I chose only a few small accessories and let the dress do all the work.

OP: Victorian Maiden
headband: Moi meme Moitie
shoes: Innocent World
jewellery: mostly Bijou Brigitte

Kaya live again

I went to see Kaya live today. It was a great chance to wear my new Moitie item.

blouse: Moi meme Moitie
skirt: Atelier Pierrot
headband: handmade
jewellery: Bijou Brigitte
everything else: random places

Here's a close up of the blouse.

After the gig we went for purikura!

I wasn't happy with this set (no full body shots!), so we made another one.

Casual outing

I met up with a friend today. First we went CD shopping in Shinjuku (I bought Kaya's Bonjour!Chanson at Pure Sound. Finally! I couldn't find that CD anywhere!) and then we went to a lovely French restaurant in Cat Street, Harajuku for delicious crepes.

A quick snapshot before leaving home.

Outfit details.

Make-up and hair accessories.

Other accessories.

You know how every lolita who comes to Japan as a tourist takes a picture on Meiji bridge? Well, I never had one, so I used the fact that I had a friend with me and asked her to take my picture there. I know that's it's such a touristy thing to do, but I really wanted it XD

In front of the restaurant.
Outfit rundown:
OP: Juliette et Justine
shawl, shoes & bag: Innocent World
coat: Black Peace Now
hair accessories: Claire's & Paris Kids
everything else: random shops

And that's our dinner! Ham and cheese crepes. I had a glass of white wine with that.

And desserts! Sorbet, theoretically with raisins, though I didn't find any XD

recent lolita shopping

As I said in my previous post, I went shopping to Marui One but I didn't buy anything there. I tried on a few items but I didn't like the way they looked on me.
However, Closet Child had lots of new Moitie items and I found a blouse I really liked. It's a little too big in the bust but the girls said that they didn't really notice, so I bought it anyway.

Back in Marui One I tried on a gorgeous BPN coat but I didn't have enough money with me. I went back today I finally bought it. It was the last one! Lucky!

Here's an official photo from their website:

It looks much better in person. I feel like a Russian aristocrats when I wear it :D

Shopping in Marui One

I took these photos after I came back, so excuse my tired look.

It was just a casual outing hence the boring simplicity of my coordinate. 

I didn't buy anything in Marui One but I did buy a Moitie blouse in Closet Child later.
It was a really fun day, and I'm very happy I got to spend it with Nargis, Tomo, Angelica, Angela and Lisa.
