I got my order from bodyline today!
These are the shoes I got, they were in the wishlist post I made earlier. I ordered them 2 sizes bigger than my usual size, because they didn't have my usual size in the color I wanted; and I'm really glad I did. These shoes are cut REALLY narrow so they only just fit.
I used to think that there was a fine line between stuff I liked and stuff old ladies like, but I take that back. There is no line. I like stuff old ladies like. On a completely different note, I went thrifting today and bought this oversize lavender cardigan. It's two sizes bigger than my usual size, but that's what makes it cute!
I also bought this tea cup, I'm not sure whether I'm going to use this for decor or actually drinking tea, but it's pretty either way.
This is just something I threw on for Driver's ed, but I liked how this outfit turned out so I photographed it. That's acutally how I make most of my outfits "I kind of feel like wearing this skirt and this sweater today.... oh wait that actually looks good!" This is also the first time I've actually worn a skirt's waist bow on my head ^^ I'm also trying this radical new thing where I don't stand in my doorway like I usually do. My shoes weren't interesting anyway.
So the other day I was going through my bookshelf and I found a book about etiquette written for little girls in the 1950s. The part about how to dress well sounds strangely like dressing like dressing a lolita. It gives advice on matching jumperskirts with blouses, the right length for skirts (2 inches above the knee), and buying petticoats. So just for fun I decided to make a co-ord where I followed the "rules' exactly. Keep in mind that this is what the author wanted 6-7 year old girls to wear to parties and the like. She would've been extremely disappointed to find out that I wore this to school, and I'm sure she would've thought I was 10 years too old to dress like this at all.

Bag and gloves: thrifted
You can't really see but the top I'm wearing has a really soft floral pattern. I love this top a lot and I've always wanted to wear it with lolita, but I could never think of a good co-ordinate involving it. So I ended up just wearing it with pajamas. Untill today of course!
Got the June issue of Kera in the mail today, and I couldn't be happier! There were a surprising amount of romantic sweet-classic lolita outfits. I wish I could share the whole thing with you, but here are the few pictures that turned out well.
