Happy Christmas!

I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas/Happy Holiday period. I hope you all have a wonderful time whatever it is you celebrate and however you spend the day. Here is a wonderful (and very silly) lolita parody video by Jillian Vessey on youtube to make your Christmas extra frilly!

Super Sweet Sales

Bargains for just £5

Hello everyone, Christmas is so close now I hope you are all sorted and excited for it. Also with the New Year not far behind, it might be time for some new wardrobe additions and I have just the place to try.
I just wanted to share this site with you as not many people seem to know about it which is a shame as it offers some great bargains! It’s called everything5pounds.com and like it say’s sells clothes, shoes and accessories for £5 each. They add a selection of new items daily, postage costs vary depending on the weight and size of your parcel but overall it still works out pretty cheap. Unfortunately they don’t have loads of super cute or Japanese street fashion suitable clothing in currently, its more general fashion but it is great for finding clothes for work, casual items or more dressy going out stuff.

Sizes can vary as can the quality but that’s always the risk with buying online. I’ve been pleased with most of my purchases and they send it 48hr tracked delivery too so I think its great.
Here are a few cuter items that are currently in stock:

Fleeced 3-In-1 Hat Scarf & Mitten Set –

Cute fuzzy slipper boots with hearts on.

Cute Shoes with Bows –


There are loads to choose from, though sizes and colours are quite limited now. Sadly they also usually have huge heels but if you can wear them then they look really pretty. Just search for bow.

They update the facebook page every evening with images of whatever tomorrows releases will be and items then go live on the website the following day at around 11am – 12pm. Popular items sell out SUPER FAST though and sometimes sizes and colours can be quite limited.

They have all sorts of items including ones with skulls and crosses on too in case you prefer more gothic and rock styled stuff. Have a search and see what you find! Happy shopping.

Outfit Shot – Lincoln Steampunk Society Christmas Meal

Last night I attended the Lincoln Steampunk Societys Christmas meal event. It was a lovely evening of music, entertainment, socialsing and eating. Sadly the dress is a bit big, due to my crazy working hours this month I didn’t have time to alter it beforehand. The top part is velvet and the skirt part is like taffeta and it has pretty bows on the sleeves and buttons down the back. It was also a total bargain at around £20 including postage, I just wish I knew more about it.

Tea Party Club Calendar 2015

I’m super busy with work over December so I’ve only got time for a quick post.

 
Last year a lolita calendar was put together with the aim of raising funds for the Tea Party Club’s annual fashion event. It was decided to do this again so like last time lolita communities from across the UK put themselves forward and were given a month by random. We decided to put our small local comm forward, as we are a group of 6, but unfortunately due to various reasons we ended up just having the three of us. We were given the month of July and about a month to sort the shoot, now given it was the end of November and all the trees are dead this was not an easy month. We tried going to a tropical house for photos, although warm it unfortunately just had lots of green trees and plants (no flowers), the lighting wasn’t great and the structure consists of glass panels and metal – not super pretty. We tried to find some scenic areas in the outside garden, which is where the final photo was taken, but as we are all in dark reds and the background is anything but summery our photo unfortunately looks very much like autumn (which it is so I guess that’s why).

 
Anyway, hopefully if they do it again next year we will get more notice and so can plan shoots throughout the year allowing for better weather or the chance to look for more suitable location options.
