Outfit for visting friend's apartment last weekend:
Skirt: thrifted (tags reads The Limited. btw, the tag on it says 2 and it fits great even though I take a 6 lol @ expensive store sizing)
And I had black tights on under.
This outfit was not meant to be a particular style, so I was surprised how good it looked.
Speaking of Claire's, have you noticed they have lots of really mori style stuff lately? It's great! I want so many things. They even have steampunk jewelry!
Outfit for the mall a few weekends ago:
Star and glasses mokos: Pretty Pop on Etsy
Lolipop moko: Hazusa on Etsy
Hoodie: Kid's Yoyo
Skirt: Dream of lolita
Socks: Secret Shop
I only own two brand loli pieces: two Putumayo tops. That's it. I don't have money for brand because I have other hobbies that mean more to me than my clothing (BJD, anime, and My Little Ponies). Yes, if I saved up, I could buy brand, but it just isnt my priority. Especially since I live in area without meet ups, I don't feel peer presure from other lolitas and I feel free to do my own thing since no one in the area understands what I'm doing any way lol. Don't get me wrong, I adore dressing lolita (and other styles), I just don't see spending more money than I need to in my situation.
About the Putu top, it's actually one of their 'Big Tees'! I thought that meant it would just be big for tiny Japanese girls, but it is huuuuuge!! I typically like more form fitting clothes, so I tucked it into my skirt and wore a hoodie to make the fit look better :)
I also want to share my fave fairy kei piece that I own with you:
I got this about a year ago from the Salvation Army, even before I started dressing fairy. It is just amazing as you can see. It's too big for me, but I think the baggy look adds to the 80s charm :)
I got this from a vintage shop a few days ago:
It's a vintage Gunne Sax! It was $35, but my mom got it down to $30 :) Gunne Sax is famous in dolly kei circles, so that what I had in mind when I bought it, but it's so cute that it's really great for casual any time wear.
