There was a meetup I attended a few weeks ago, and the theme was "Finnish summer". Obviously finnish summer is short and has only a little snow, whereas the winter is long and rather never ending. I was thrilled by the theme, because it suited me well and I love making my coord fit a theme (as long as it's loose enough to manage with my smallish wardrobe). My coord was therefore a bit bitter (not exactly bitter sweet, but something along those lines) and the skirt had ice creams on it. I also threw in my old leather gloves, which I made many years ago (and wore very often!) since they seemed to tie the ero-vibes of my current favourite bag together with the rest of the coord.

I was a little bit unsure about the gloves at first, but since they used to be one of my very favourite items, I thought this was a good opportunity to get to wear them again after a long while. I was prepared for hearing that they would be out of place in my coord, but what do you know, people actually loved them and complimented my dear old gloves! Fancy that  (^_~)

All and all I felt very comfortable wearing this coord. I was originally supposed to get more colour in my life through lolita, but I do prefer it black. That's just how it is, and it seems I can't get far from it. But then again, who the heck cares as long as it's fun and feels good  ┐('`)┌  


Oh, I've actually learned something about posing? 
Fancy that, miracles do happen (_;)

My most used hair do. I wonder if I am just lazy or could it be that this simply looks good with just about everything? I even made a tutorial when I first came up with it
(^^) And it so happens that it is also the ONLY hair tutorial I ever made. Does that say something about me...?



I love the group photos and also the people were darlings


But this is ever so much better while derping (;ω)and I had a great time (even though my face is saying I have no idea what the heck I should be doing)!


I am proud to say that I'm currently sewing my new puffy chiffon petti (or more like organza, since it's so stiff). So now, not all talk but a work in progress already! I am hoping for it to turn out well suited for wear even while showing from under a dress or an overskirt. Don't know though yet, have to see how it looks once finished. It has a sort of champagne or beige shade about it, so I'd wager it could look good with old and creamy colours. I just hope it won't end up looking too much like underwear. I'm even dreaming of art nouveau vibes or something fairy-like for a coord with it, but I'll just have to wait once it's finished and see how it looks with what I've got.
