Loli-ed Up

If you thought yesterday's outfit was sweet, this is probably going to give you a toothache. I'm not much of a lolita girl in general, I adore the girls, appreciate the outfits but it's just a little too much for me to take on as a style every single day...but for the debut of my new corsage faux-litas DIY, I figured I had to bite the bullet to do a little justice for this look. I went with rich block colors here to keep it simple with such statement shoes and chucked on a denim blazer to toughen it up ever so slightly.   Way too many people quarantine a piece off for certain occasions - who says red silk work-appropriate blouses can't be merged into a super sweet look with a detachable collar and a layered skort? Which by the way reminds me to gush about how much I love hidden skorts - ever wondered how I walk around in really short skirts without flashing people? Well, first up - I always wear nice underwear and seriously - most of my pieces are actually skorts which effectively solve the coverage issue. I've had this denim jacket since I was twelve and unfortunately, it's never gotten enough wear because get this guys - this is a denim jacket without a collar! Yep, that's right - some genius went ahead a designed a boucle style denim jacket in the early days of 2000 where we all aspired to look like Lizzie Macguire.  Those are not real lapels for the record, they are my attempt to makeshift lapels by buttoning the regular buttons onto the front pockets.

  3. wow! i totally appreciate your style. sweet DIY shoes! this is sort of unrelated: i'm sure that this isn't your style, but you'd look SO flippin' good in a ripped up vintage black slayer tee and black leather shorts. gah. your face just SCREAMS grunge to me. is that weird? god, i'm so sorry for being so creepy. if you lived in Los Angeles, i'd probably have you model all of my grungey stuff because your facial features are just built for that style, haha. this is no way an insult! your style is great, fantastic actually :-)

  16. Love the shoes! And your outfit is great. It's "cutesy" enough to be lolita, but not so over the top that you can't wear it in everyday life.

  17. Cute outfit Anni! I like the thigh-high socks. Do you find that they stay up pretty well? I always have the problem of them slowly drifting down as the day goes on.
