LBC: Your Dream Meet-Up

This week’s topic is…

Your Dream Meet-Up

I love going to meet-ups and I miss my community in North Carolina SO FREAK’N MUCH!  They are such a wonderful community and it saddens me to be so far away and have the weekends always be so busy that I haven’t been able to meet the community in Wisconsin.

So it certainly seems like a time to dream about magical meet-ups.

I love meet-ups where you do more than just shop or eat food, even though those are still amazingly fun!  I like to have time to talk with my fellow Lolitas while we do something.  One meet-up that really sticks out to me is where we went ice skating!  It was the first meet-up that I hosted and, despite the sometimes windiness, it was very unique and fun.

So with that preface, my dream meet-up wouldn’t be something overly specific, but meet certain criteria: Continue reading

Lolita Carnival Blog: Lolita Wishlist

This week’s topic is…

What’s Next On Your Lolita Wishlist?

I haven’t been blogging or sewing much lately partially because I’ve had some non-Lolita commissions to work on, but mostly because of this fur-blob of cuteness

But enough about this crazy puppy and onto the LCB topic…

For me, I have two types of wishlists for Lolita: Dream Dresses that are never in my budget and things that I want to sew.  I’m going to focus on the latter category since it is more probable and specific.

The two main specifics I have about the next thing I want to see is:
-JSK
-Wearable with Lolita or as a “sundress”/without petti

My first thought is wanting a JSK that is a is double-breasted.  Whether it’s something more militant like the left two, or more vintage like the right photo.

Now that I’m living on the beach, something with a nautical-vintage twist like this dress could also be really fun.  Especially with stripes and this lovely blue color.  I don’t have much like this in my closet.

And my last option is something like this!  I love the polka dots with the print and this back-style.  The tiers would work really nicely without a petti as well.

Short and simple, but there’s a peek inside my sewing-wishlist-brain right now.
