I know I don't write very often, but I do want to. It's just that nothing really exciting happens in my life. I don't go to meet-ups, I don't buy a lot of new things nor do I keep track of new releases, and I don't feel like I'm experienced enough to give style tips. The only thing I really have to offer is sewing results and outfit posts, and I'm afraid those are boring... But I love looking at outfit posts on other blogs, and I don't want my blog to be silent and empty, so I'll just post daily outfits. Oh, and I can share experiences and give advice about wearing lolita in certain occasions! Such as rain, or riding a bike. I live in Holland, rain and bicycles are the definition of our country. Plenty experience ^^
Also, I would like to keep this blog to be strictly lolita related. I could talk about personal things or about studying, but I don't think those topics belong on a lolita blog. I will, however, post more drawings! I draw a lot, especially new designs for dresses, and I would like to share them with you. Since I don't have Photoshop at the moment, it will only be scanned pencil sketches, but I hope you will like them anyways.
Now, the weather is terrible at the moment. Strong wind, rain and cold. It's not really wintery cold yet, but cold enough to be very limited in clothing choices. It's supposed to get better in a few days, but I'm sure it won't stay sunny very long. :(
Well, here are some recent outfits that are, if anything, warm:
The first one I wore to have dinner with a friend. I was having some trouble with studying and also emotions, and she gave me advice and really cheered me up. I'm lucky to have such good friends :)
dress: handmade by me, "Antique French Roses"
wristcuffs: handmade by me
jewelry: vintage & offbrand
The next dress is relatively new. Although it's been finished for a while, I haven't worn it often yet. I think it's just a little too much to wear to lectures. But I do really like the design. The middle part has doves and clouds on it, and the buttons are very pretty as well.

I usually give my dresses names, but I haven't been able to come up with a good name for this one yet. I'm calling it "Sixtine" for now, because the birds and clouds remind me of the Sixtine chapel, but I don't think it suits very well. Do you have any suggestions?
|Isn't that bag lovely? I've been searching for ages for a bag like this, and now I use it almost every day ^^|
|this pose is exactly the same as the previous one, minus the bag ^^;|
dress: handmade by me, "Sixtine"
turtleneck: somewhere on taobao
wrist cuffs: handmade by me
Well, I hope that entertained you. Now I'll have to go back to studying~
