well, i did go by that lolita shop i mentioned in my last post. it’s called summer tales boutique &, even half-full, it’s so very, very lovely. i can’t believe i didn’t know it before. it’s only half an hour away on bicycle! i got to try on a hurriedly assembled lolita outfit, with a petticoat. ah, that petticoat. i had to buy it. it’s so big & cute. strangely, i’ve never owned a proper petticoat before. how i’ve missed out.
of course, pictures taken of it laying flat on my bed don’t do it any kind of justice, but i don’t have any skirts or dresses to wear with it yet. my jsk shipped today though. aaaah, i can’t wait to receive it! & wear it with this petticoat!
i also bought a bodyline blouse. so lovely & inexpensive.
although i’m not sure if it’ll go with my jsk. well, i can always buy another that does go with it. or make one. if only i had more opportunity to sew… i’m actually considering skipping out on that vacation to budapest next week & go have a vacation at my mom’s house with my sewing machines instead. a whole week to make lolita clothes would be so very lovely. sigh. after that whole week in which i would go to budapest i start with a new block at school & it will be all work, work, work again.
when i saw their workspace at summer tales boutique… heavenly. these things really make me want to go back into fashion. they offer internships there too. not that that would be of any benefit to my comparative literature studies. anyway, here is also a flyer the nice lady gave me:
if you live anywhere near houten, go check it out! it’s a very inspiring shop overall.
