I haven't posted this month since I was quite busy with a lot of stuff. I have had 2 photoshootings with Nina and Nora - pictures will follow in the next post, when my bf has edited all of them - and did some online shopping :x
pff -__-" I went shopping and that was all I could find. I have to look for a new bag this week. Mine which I take for work looks horrible!
My new Mary Magdalene dress arrived. It's called エルメリア (I can read it a hundret times, "erumeria" doesn't make any sence to me)
I have also ordered 2 bags, 2 shoes, makeup 180 colors, my first Bonnet.... I guess most of the stuff will arrive around march u___û -
I am now looking for another dress by Mary Magdalene (Antoinette, you will see a pic of it later this post) or any awesome dress by Victorian Maiden.
Since I haven't posted in such a long time and since I have never done something like this, I have done a Lolita questionnaire the first time in my life :D Please don't feel offended by my opinion about replicas, brands or something else! My opinion is not a rule ;)
1. How I got into lolita
I have collected Lolita pictures of Yukirin since I was 11 years old and found music of Kana on youtube when I was into J-Rock around 2005/06. In August 2006 I have seen my first real Lolias at cologne central station (one among those girls was Nora, one of my closest Lolitafriend today). Later I started to research, and entred the animexx Zirkel Gothic Lolitas.
2. My first coordinate
Haha... most of the girls who started around the time I did want to hide their horrible first coordinates (or make fun of it now!). In 2006 it wasn't as easy to purchase items as today! Bodyline was still a "fugly cheap fetish cosplay somewhat" store and Metamorphose was the only brand I remember which shipped oversea! So you can expect my first coordinate to be horrible, but just 2 weeks after my first failure I ordered my first brand items ;) But to make you laugh:
3. Advice I’d give to an aspiring lolita
Spending 700 €++ for a complete outfit is common and be sure that you are willed to spend a lot of money. Buy a great Petticoat - it's worth its price. Taobao is a nice place to find cheap stuff like shoes etc. but if you want to look great, buy brand dresses - they always look better than a lot of offbrand, replicas etc pp (that is MY opinion!). And NEVER wear Mules haha most ugliest and cheap looking stripper shoes (I guess a those who have me in their facebook list know that I hate Mules...)
4. Current wishlist
Mary Magdalene - Antoinette in mint & Baby the stars shine bright - Fragrant Rose Memories
5. Lolitas who inspire me
My friends or girls in the german community I would like to meet. E.g. Nora, Nina, Fanu, Maria, Hoa ...
6. My local community
I consider myself as a NRW Lolita? Well our community is huge. When I have started years ago, we were around 20 Lolitas all over NRW! Nowadays I can walk across the streets and see Lolitas I don't even know. That's great and I am happy that so many girls are into this great fashion. Often I would like to meet more of them! Sadly our meet-ups are that huge, that you can't talk to everyone - and I am too shy to speak to all the girls ^^"
7. Favorite meet-up spot
Castle of Benrath? I guess I have been there around 20-25 times just for Lolita meet-ups .. Over all I love castles (if fancy or rundown doesn't matter)
8. Dream dress
At the moment it is the Mary Magdalene Antoinette fleur dress in mint :) (see picture above!)
9. My wardrobe
Consits only brand dresses. Some blouses, shoes and handbags are off brand or replicas - but just because they are frequently used. My favorite brand at the moment is Mary Magdalene but I have dresses from: Mary Magdalene, Baby the stars shine bright, Angelic Pretty, Innocent World, Mille Fleurs, Heart E.
10. Favorite item from my wardrobe
Mary Magdalene Perfume Bottle. It has been Angelic Pretty's Rose Toilette for a few years but it's nothing special anymore.
11. My favorite coordinate
Angelic Pretty - Rose Toilette ^^" first time I have worn it with matching socks back in 2010
12. Favorite accessory
I love my Metamorphose Barret
13. What I wear outside of lolita
Jeans and colorful T-Shirts (even though I would love to change my style but I am too lazy to go shopping in Germany..). I guess people with whom I work together would never recognize me on weekends - last year there was a newspaper article with a picture of me in the office - noone recognized me :P
14. Favorite motifs
Flowers and Perfume prints. I don't like foodprint or animal prints anymore :)
15. Favorite aspects of lolita
Details! And the feeling of beeing really beautiful when walking on the streets.
16. Least favorite aspects of lolita
People talking behind me? And explaining why I like this fashion to strangers ^^" because I hate it to mention the name of it...
17. A funny thing that happened to me while wearing lolita
In May 2010 I have been to Tokyo with Nora and when we walked around Yoyogi Park, we have met a school class on a field trip - I guess we are part of 300 yearbooks now ;)
18. Why I wear lolita
The feeling of absolute perfection.
19. A favorite lolita-related photo (of myself or others)
(Me on the left side, Nora on the right side) I love this picture because it's such an awesone twinshoot
20. My most recent coordinate
A photo from the photoshooting last Friday - more will follow! If you would like to see photos my boyfriend takes of other girls, please check out Anh Binh's facebook page: *click*
On Saturday my friends and I will visit the Kabuki Rock Style in Essen :) yeah! I have listened to a lot of "fantastic baby" and "oppa oppa" this time ;D
