On our honeymoon, we went to San Jose and San Francisco. Jeremy saw right through my reasonings for this destination because he knew that Baby the Stars Shine Bright AND Angelic Pretty had shops there. Needless to say, he knew it would be hard to convince me to go some place else.
We had decided on a budget for Lolita shopping and we went to the Angelic Pretty/Harajuku Hearts store first. It. Was. Very. Exciting.
He treated me to a pair of Enchantlic Enchantilly socks that I have been drooling over for…let’s see…FOREVER! And a skirt. But not just any skirt. A New Print. Which was quite the exciting event. Though I held in my excited, maniacal laughter until we left the store. It is the Musee du Chocolat skirt in Ivory. The last one. *angels singing*
Thus, the budget was spent. As we began walking to the Baby store, I tried to concentrate on the spoils of war that I had just acquired when Jeremy told me “you know what, we can eat at Chipotle twice today instead of that fancy dinner if you want to get something else from Baby.” I was like “um, yes! Chipotle twice in one day sounds absolutely fabulous.”
Thus, I was able to get an incredible Alice skirt – Alice’s Mirage in PARADOX. It has three things I love: Military Buttons on the front, Diamond Plaid and Alice in Wonderland-ness. This is a really fun, unique print because it doesn’t have the typical Alice and Cats theme. I has mirrors – yay, mirrors! – with more uncommon Alice things like the White Queen chess piece, Twiddle-Dee and Twiddle-Dum and the Jabberwocky poem. It was exciting. And I got some drippy chocolate socks because…Chocolate.
Anyways, so that was an incredible highlight to our two week Honeymoon vacation. The other highlight was Chipotle. Every. Day. Yes.
When we got to Sheboygan – that’s where I live now – there was so much unpacking and moving and house-shopping and stuff to do that I didn’t get a chance to wear any of my new items! Then we decided to go get ice cream. At the pier. Yum! So I got to dress up! yay! Unfortunately, I lost my camera just before the wedding, so we are saving up to get a new one and but Jeremy still took some foggy, low-res photos with his phone.
Tank Top: Charlotte Russe
Skirt: “Alice’s Mirage in PARADOX” from BtSSB
Socks: “Sweets Choco” from BtSSB
Boots: Bodyline (and boy do I need to repaint them)
Something casual, but when you haven’t worn Lolita in what seems like forever and your skirt is brand new brand, it’s still crazy awesome.
Have you had any new wardrobe editions recently? What did you get?
