Daily Knees

Good evening, lords and ladies!

Last Saturday was Kata's doll themed Halloween party, but we also had our traditional Kesänkuoppajaiset the same day. I decided to pop in at Kata's quickly before our own party. Thus my outfit had to be somewhat doll themed, but also comfy. Shirring was an absolute must as Kesänkuoppajaiset had a lot of awesome food - the menu had crepes, pancakes and such! The dress would also have to be machine washable in case I would accidentally drop orange marmalade on it. Luckily that never happened, though, but that's a lot of requirements for one single outfit!

I didn't take any pictures at Kesänkuoppajaiset (I was too busy eating and having fun with my dear friends) but have some adorable pictures of Chili, Kata's kitten instead. Mimi also has wonderful pictures of the other "dolls" at Kata's party.

I'm actually a little bit afraid of cats, and could never have a cat of my own, but I must admit they are cute when they are just small kittens! :D


The Bunny Party

Hello, everyone!

Lauren wanted to meet my bunnygirl Odessa, so I invited her, Tiia and Sari over for some tea and bunny petting. It was a great excuse to wear my new Jane Marple dress. I love it, it's so easy and comfy to wear! *-*

Kalevala Jewelry's Heart of the House necklace  matches this dress perfectly.

We got this table cloth from my fiancé's grandmother. She has embroidered it herself and it's so beautiful I could almos cry. (By the way, I did iron the table cloth but not enough, it seems, because soon after it got its old wrinkles back!)

Here's Lauren and Tiia with my Odessa! Needless to say that Her Royal Bunnyness was most pleased to have two ladies in waiting who petted her and bribed her with treats. ♥


Rose Red

My fiancé has always given me white roses. I've been asking him why white, why doesn't he give me red roses sometimes for a change? Red roses are a sign of love, after all. But now that he gives me red ones, I find myself missing the white roses. I guess I got used to them! We women are never happy, it seems. :')


Oops... x 2

Hello, lords and ladies!

Lately I've been trying to sell some of my lolita dresses for two reasons. Reason # 1 is that my (lolita) style has evolved during the years, and my tastes have changed towards more classic, so some of the dresses I have simply do not fit my style any more. I never use them, so why keep them? Reason # 2 is that my closets are simply so full I can't fit all my dresses there properly - and this means I have too many of them and some of them have to go. (And yes, even a lolita fashion enthusiastic can have too many dresses.) It is really hard to let dresses go, but I'm trying my best.

Well, not hard enough, it seems, because I slipped. Twice. What else can I say, than "Oops"? But in my defence I have to say that Mimi, that cunning girl, made such a good offer for me that I couldn't find it in my heart to refuse. I already promised to myself that I will sell at least two dresses to make room for these, but really, I'm in the starting point again. Oh dear. Mimi, it's all your fault! :D

But will you just look at them? They are beautiful. Especially this Jane Marple dress. It's olive green, but all over the facric there are golden threads, so the whole dress shimmers. The dress is embroidered with gold also, picturing a Russian style church with flowers in front of it and little clouds over it. The hem is quite narrow, which makes it ideal for comfortable (only one petticoat required!), yet elegant outfits.

The second dress is by Innocent World. It is a quite basic black JSK - the type I have been looking for a long time. I will be able to wear it in lots of different ways, and even though it's a wardrobe basic (in lolita standards at least), it also has lots of details that make it interesting.


Mint x Red

Hello, everyone!

Sanni visited our place today and that gave me a good excuse to dress up. I have wanted to coordinate this dress with dark red forever, and now I finally did it.

I accidentally saved the wrong picture on my computer and deleted the rest - and now this is all I'm left with. It really saddens me because I liked this outfit a lot. ;_;

The Crazy Bunny Lady

Good afternoon, lords and ladies!

Yesterday I visited Lahti for some tea party-ing and scrapping with my frilly girls - it was like a little lolita road trip, as we went all together by car.

Every one is always talking about the crazy cat ladies, but when I'm old, I will be a crazy bunny lady for sure. Maybe I already am, actually. I can't resist anything bunny themed. :')

Mimi has a bunnybear too! Her name is Lareine and she is bigger than my bunnybears. She was so lovely that I'm actually wondering should I have a black bunnybear, too - then I'd have the whole set of them.

My bunny stockings. I also had Minna Parikka's bunny ear bag but I forgot it from the pictures.

There was lots of food, of course. We also got to taste Mimi's own tea blend, "Mist Over the Hills". It looked a little bit misty in the cup, like it had a drop of milk in it, and it was delicious!

We also did some scrapping for a notebook that is going to be sent to Misako Aoki when it's complete. I drew this unicorn for the book. It's not that good, I hardly never draw anymore and my skills are rusty (and they were never that good to begin with) but hey, it matches my outfit. :P

And in the end, here's every one! On top row Kata, Hanna and Lauren, on the sofa me and Mimi.


Bunny in Boots

Good evening, lords and ladies!

My fiancé gave me two equally wonderful options for my birthday present. After a long and agonizing consideration I ended up choosing...

...Minna Parikka's Bunny Vic ankle boots in cream and black. 

My birthday isn't till November, but Minna Parikka store was running out of small sizes in this colour option, so I got my present a little bit early. :3
