makeup experiments

I was playing with the toys from my toy box, otherwise known as my makeup case. I think it doesn't look too bad.

My face isn't really that white. The lighting wasn't too good.

Also, I finished a nail set for an outfit I want to wear at D's gig.

Outfit post

I thought I'd be able to officially end the tights season and begin the socks season today, but no such luck. Still not warm enough to wear knee-length socks.

I definitely didn't feel very creative today. I just wanted to lift my mood by wearing a pretty dress.

JSK: Innocent World
blouse: HMHM
headband: Innocent World
necklace: MAM

This headband is my very first lolita hair accessory and it deserves its own picture.

And my makeup today. I tried out some silver eyeshadows by GOSH. A local shop discontinued GOSH products and everything was 50% off, so I bought a few things.

This weekend there was the "Gdansk for half price" action. It's an initiative to attract tourist to the area. Many restaurants participated and lowered their prices by 50% for two days. We took this opportunity and went to a newly opened sushi bar.

JSK: Innocent World
necklace: MOHITO
bracelet, earrings: Bijou Brigitte

I labeled this post "lolita-inspired" because I'm not sure if I can call it lolita considering the low neckline.

Outfit post - Miyavi's gig

Yesterday I saw Miyavi live in Centrum Stocznia, GdaƄsk.
This is what I wore:
JSK: Angelic Pretty
bolero: Bodyline
necklace: Bijou Brigitte

We arrived at the hall at about 4 pm, but it was awfully cold so we went to Pellowski cafe to get something to eat.

But of course finally we had to move and wait in line in the cold and windy weather.

Finished project

I've finished the dress I wrote about here. The construction is, well... terrible. But I'm quite proud of how the embroidery turned out.

Every window is slightly different. On each window there are different birds in different places.

My petticoats are dead. Died by suffocating in my wardrobe. I need to starch them, hopefully that will help.

This is a head-to-toe non-brand outfit. The dress is an altered NewYorker piece, and everything else is from local shops.

Outfit post

I decided to dress up more often.
Today I wanted to wear something old school, so I chose black x white. I'm not sure if I achieved my goal, though.
I don't have a black lolita skirt, so I had to use whatever I found in my closet.

blouse: Innocent World
cardigan: MOHITO
skirt (outer): H&M
skirt (inner): altered offbrand

I dressed up for no reason today. I haven't worn lolita much lately and really missed it, so I decided to change this situation.

JSK: Alice and the Pirates
everything else: local shops
