Lolita 52 - My best deal

Seeing as this is Black Friday here in the United States, I thought this would be a relevant topic. In case any of my overseas readers are unaware - Black Friday is what Americans consider the "official" beginning of the holiday shopping season - and it's always the Friday after Thanksgiving. Lots of retailers open ridiculously early - some as early as 3 am - and offer ridiculously good deals on merchandise. Online retailers have also jumped on the bandwagon with their own special sales day - "Cyber Monday" and it serves the same purpose as Black Friday. I'm personally not a big fan of either of these days because there is more to the holiday season than gifts, but it is what is is.

Review - Bodyline Shoes300

Back in early October I ordered 3 pairs of Bodyline's newest shoes during their sale, and they finally arrived last week! I would have written this review earlier, but the weather has been so rainy and dark since then that I haven't been able to take decent photos. I picked up 3 pairs of Shoes300 in colors that suit my wardrobe, and I couldn't be happier!

Lolita 52 - What my own lolita lifestyle is like

A picture speaks a thousand words...
I'd love to take this moment to wax poetically about my fabulous, frilly lolita lifestyle - how I wear the fashion on a daily basis, including at work. Unfortunately, this is not the case. I'm employed somewhere that require uniforms, and even if it didn't my line of work is a bit on the messy side, so dressing in such opulent clothing is not exactly prudent. Additionally, I also live in the south eastern United States, which has a climate that is rather hostile to wearing the layers required with lolita for much of the year. However, despite these obstacles, I strive to have as much of a lolita lifestyle as possible.

Lolita 52 - Combining lolita with other fashions

To be honest, this post was really difficult for me to write as I outside of lolita my wardrobe is pretty boring. I've wasn't very interested in fashion prior to getting into this one, and my outfits were very basic, jeans and a t-shirt were my go to clothing on the weekends - and still are when I'm not in lolita. However, there is one fashion trend that I've been fond of, which is beginning to get attention outside of Tumblr - Disneybounding.

Now, cosplay and fandom coords usually get the side eye with the majority of adherents to this fashion, but I'm of the opinion there's nothing wrong with them as long as you remember to stick to the rules and guidelines of lolita.

Lolita 52 - What's in my closet, but I haven't worn yet!

My wardrobe's growth has been pretty small recently, due to the fact that I've started a new budget that will allow me to spend guilt free. Unfortunately, because of this, I haven't added much to my wardrobe recently in the way of main pieces, but have exchanged some shoes and blouses for things that are more elegant and opulent, and in the long run will lend themselves to more variety in my coordinates. I've found that my style has begun to evolve into less of a traditional sweet aesthetic (not that it was ever the pastel flavor), and more into a classic-sweet hybrid. As much as I find classic beautiful, I just love the cute themes and imagery present in sweet, particularly chocolate and other desserts. However, I am waiting on a few things in the mail (so I guess technically they aren't part of my closet yet), and have a main piece that I've yet to wear to a meet (but have worn in public very briefly).
