Outfit Of The Day!

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 20:57 2 comments
Shoes- offbrand
Skirt- Bodyline
Blouse- AnnaHouse
Petticoat- Dear Celine Frothy Petticoat II

Well here's a random outfit post. I shall try to do more little random posts when I can, as I have so little time to do actual in depth blog posts now days.

As usual I had dressed in Lolita for the anime club I attend at the local library. Considering I wear Lolita most times the club is on, and some people cosplay and also wear alternative fashion, I'd assumed that everyone who went to the library was used to it by now. Although I was wrong it seems, as we must have had a newcomer in the library this night as I got asked a very odd question.

Usually I get odd looks when I'm shopping with friends from people at school and that's usually about it. Sometimes I even get compliments which baffles and surprises me, as I have always expected negative outcomes...

Tonight though I got the dreaded "Are you going to a play?"

I have heard this response so many times on the internet from other Lolita's saying they get it all the time, yet surprisingly I have never had this asked before. I felt a little downcast from this response to be honest, as surely Lolita isn't that strange that you assume it only to be appropriate for a play. I have been feeling rather down in confidence lately to be honest, as much as I love this fashion, people still find it so strange. What is so wrong with me wanting to dress in cute clothes.

I know the random guy was just curious, and I politely responded with "no this is how I usually dress". Although it still somewhat upsets me somehow that people seem so confused by my clothing. I like to dress this way because it makes me happy, but I hate attention.

Other than that I had a great night, we even played hide & go seek in the library. In the photo of my outfit I was hiding in the disabled toilets with a friend during the game.

What was the most negative response you have had in Lolita? Have you ever had one of those days where even if you expected the response, you just felt so unhappy at a strangers comment? Talk about your experience of wearing Lolita out in public in the comments below.

Mr Yan Body Pillow Anyone?

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 17:04 4 comments

For those who don't know who the infamous Mr Yan is, he is the bad English speaking owner of Bodyline. He has numerous rumors about him floating around on the internet for his sketchy behavior and his liking to prey on young innocent girls as well as many other things. Here is an example.

And hilariously enough, there is an event on Facebook asking if we want a body pillow made of this guy. I'm not sure if this is legitimate or just a funny troll, but I am both in hysterics and equally creeped out by this. Either this guy has the biggest ego ever, or he thinks he's hilarious.

This event has been going for a while, and has already finished. We have yet to discover if this is a real event or not, and to see if he will actually make body pillows of himself for everyone who wants one.

What do you think of this event? Do you find it funny? Hilarious? Disturbing and creepy? Do you believe that it's a real event?

Here are some hilarious posts from the event...

A Flower Themed Coordinate- LBC

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 08:00 0 comments
This weeks topic for Lolita Blog Carnival is 'Create A Flower Themed Coordinate'. I wanted to create something relatively simple and affordable, reflecting my own style in Lolita. I just love Anna House's new floral dress, so I decided to base my coordination around it. What do you think?

The rest of the items (excluding the random headband) are items from Bodyline.

Here are some more flower themed coords....

Skirt and blouse- Anna House, shoes and wig- Bodyline

Bonnet and skirt- Mystery Garden, cardigan shoes and wig- Bodyline,


Check out these other flower themed coordinates ^w^

A Pleasant Weekend And a General Update!

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 22:03 2 comments
Well I own slightly more Lolita now. Three (wearable) dresses (I still haven't fixed my Bodyline one), three skirts, two blouses, three cutsews and three petticoats. I have plans on buying two pairs of tea parties once I have the funds, and I have a skirt still on the way. I also plan on trying to stick with Classic from now on, to help build a consistent wardrobe. Although I mainly buy whatever I see that happens to catch my eye, as sometimes I just can't help myself. I'm hoping that if I keep trying my best to save that I can eventually have heaps of Lolita.

On another note, I cut my hair really short. For years I had always wanted long hair, even as a child...but something made me want to cut it off. I think that it's easier to style this length, and I think my wig looks better on me in Lolita anyway.I might buy a wig off Bodyline in the future as I really want to start wearing more wigs. What do you guys think of my hair?

Aren't these shoes amazing
I also had a very pleasant weekend out in Lolita last Sunday. I went to a small second hand market with my mother dressed in a rather casual Lolita outfit. I was wearing the same floral dress I always wear in public, as I find it's the easiest one to wear and less eye catching, and I wore my small old petticoat as I was driving. I always find it hard to drive in my dad's small car with a petticoat for some reason (anyone else have this issue?)

My mother and I decided to make a nice day out, and we went shopping beforehand. The market itself was quite small, and it had some really weird things there, but there were also some really nice shoes. Unfortunately a lot of the shoes I liked were way to big for my tiny feet, but I did manage to finally find a nice versatile pair of shoes that fit me quite well.

The pair that I bought only cost me AUD$10...what a bargain. They were also brand new, the store lady said she was selling them because they didn't fit her. These shoes are quite comfortable, and are easy to get on and off with the velcro straps. I think these shoes will look amazing with my Mystery Garden dress.

All in all I had a wonderful day out, and surprisingly enough I even got compliments on my dress. A lady at the shopping center said she liked what I was wearing while buying lunch, and so did several of my mums friends whom we ran into at the market. The lady that I bought the shoes from said she also loved my dress, and really liked the corset lacing on the back. It was a real confidence up-lifter and made me feel positively happy.

What was a positive experience you guys have had out in Lolita?




Classical Puppets and Dear Celine Petticoats Review

Posted by Caitlin Neryce at 21:18 0 comments

*cough cough*...well I kinda got these petticoats more than a few weeks ago, but neglected to post. School has become hectic, that mixed with work and laziness has caused me to neglect this blog a little bit. As much as I enjoy blogging, I'm still so new to all of this and it takes quite a bit of effort. Although I will attempt to stay active more from now on I promise.

I ordered Classical Puppets A-Line Petticoat III and Dear Celine Frothy Petticoat II from ClobbaOnline. Considering when I first started in Lolita Fashion I didn't have a petticoat at first, and when I eventually got one I only wore it around the house and to conventions for a couple of years, I hadn't really had a poofy petticoat recently. My first petticoat has deflated a considerable amount in the last year, and I was in need of a new one desperately. Although for daily wear I didn't need something huge, so I went with relatively small looking petticoats on purpose. I wasn't used to the idea of wearing a poofy petticoat out in the public eye either, although Lolita is something I want to stick with.

Now onto the review...
