30 Day Lolita Challenge- day, er, just read the post!

ok, your probably never going to forgive me for this. I’m going to have to miss a few days on the whole 30 Day Lolita Challenge thing. Partly because I can’t think of anything I can possibly put for them, as I’m new to lolita, and partly so I can pick up and and carry on (you may have noticed that i haven’t been posting about it in a while)! I hope you don’t mind, and if and when I finish the 3dlc (30 day lolita challenge), I will come back and do them as I’ll probably have more experience. Sorry! So, I’m going to pick back up at day 10, What’s In Your Bag?

Day 10- What’s In Your Bag?

There’s not much in my bag that could be of much use.  I usually take a cute mirror Vaseline, lip gloss , tissues, a brush kirby grips etc for the cosmetic department.  Maybe not all of that at once, but usually a few things out of that list. Then I’ll take a kawaii purse ( in fact i dont think i own any that arent kawaii!), and a sketch book and pencil. People are always like ‘why do you carry a sketchbook?’ I think it’s in case I get any sudden ideas. It makes me feel more artistic, anyway.  Of course I take my phone, with a kawaii case on it, and maybe a book? Depends what I’m into. rightnow I’m reading Lord of the Rings! It’s quite a lot to cram into one bag, and usually I take an over-the-should bag because they’re easier to carry.

In other news, i decided to join another lolita thing again. It doesnt really have a name, and it’s basically how to ‘level up’ in lolita. Ever met that perfect lolita, who is, well, perfect? Well this is how to level up and get to her standard.

Each criteria is a level. Add up your total and then put yourself into a category. Repost this to your own blog, website, or journal, bolding the ones that apply to you, and then show your score/level at the bottom. The only rule is that you must add one lolita ‘level’ to the list!

~please remember this is all just silly fun, do not get worked up about it! Plus, if your feeling low about your score, just take a look at mine!~

Lolita Challenge Day 2! <3

10 Things You Love In Lolita!

  • You Can Be As Girly As You Like! As I mentioned yesterday, in lolita, you can be as cute and girly as you like. Not my particular taste, I must say, but some blogs dont shut up about barbie and my little pony, and nobody cares!
  • The Colors. I love all the pastel shades in lolita dresses. So cute!
  • The Way It’s A Combination Of English And Japanese. I love the way that Lolita is a fusion between twee English high tea style and kawaii Japanese- perfect!
  • The Nails. Again, I don’t really go in for this kinda thing, but the willpower it must take with those nails! They must fit so much on! Everything’s so kawaii on them!
  • Shaped Bags. I own one shaped bag, which I’m trying to fit into a coordinate for the MCM- that’s odd, matching a dress to a bag, isn’t it?! They’re so cute! My favorites are the cat and pony/unicorn/Pegasus bags, but above all are the Milk heart shaped bags! I’m desperate for one, though I can’t imagine the cost. The simplicity matched with the colors is such an amazing combination! It’s one my wishlist…
  • The DIY Aspect. I love the DIY aspect of Lolita! It’s all like “do it yourself, man” , and I think having some sort of creative fibre in your being is a must for any lolita. I can’t sew. I’ll admit it.  But I can glue and use nail varnish, which is basically how I make all of my accessories.
  • The Blogs. Every blog I go to is so jammed with kawaii! It has definitely helped me develop my own blog, and become more interested in kawaii and lolita fashion. ❤
  • The Expertise. Everytime someone receives a cute dress, it’s not just “oooh! I got a dress! It’s so lovely!” It’s “oooh I got a dress! It’s so lovely! And just look at the attention to detail! The pattern on the lace is a carousel! And the ribbon isn’t cheapo!” or something like that… My point is, that everyone knows their thing about how  things should be made, and where people are, and who people are, etc.
  • The Friendliness. After seeing how people react to seeing other people around, and how they make nice compliments on other people’s style, blogs etc, I feel much more comfortable reading lolita blogs! I love how everyone knows each other!
  • The Sheer Kawai-ness Of It All!
