30 Day Challenge - Begin!

I came across an interesting challenge here and thought I would give it a try and take a break from the book reviews and pointing out outfits for a while. Let's see how long I can keep up!

Day 1 – 10 things about your lolita bubble.

I'm in love with the idea of looking like a fairy tale princess, but in a more "frolicking in the flowers and finding enchanted places" way than an "all that's pink and glitters" way. I love any excuse to work roses and pearls to coordinates and I love textures.

Shoes are as much about the sound they make as I walk as the way they look and feel. I always loved the scene in 'A Little Princess' where she'd cleaned the floor and another girl walks over it, just because the click clacks were so dainty and precise. I always imagine that this is how a lady should sound when she walks.

I am in love with jumperskirts paired with vintage tops or cutsews. Skirts are alright for casual or fun looks, but they can't compare.

I've developed a passion for embroidery since starting to wear Lolita, and while I'm still very slow at it I like to think I'm at least moderately talented. My dream is to one day have many pieces that I've stitched tributes to things I love onto.

I loved the fashion long before I was able to wear it, rather due to cost, practicality or simply not being brave enough. I consider it as a mark of how far I've grown that I'm able to wear what I love now.

I'm currently being a guide to all things loli for a close friend of mine, and loving every second of it. I'm super excited about seeing her put on her first dress. She will look amazing in it!

Tea! Lately I've been trying even more types of teas than ever before, and I find that I'm loving teas I used to dislike back when I stuck to a favorite tea. I'm also thinking more about which ones fit the seasons. Right now I'm going between floral and fruity teas.

I'll soon have a HUGE bathroom counter separate from my husband's. Which means I'll have room to organize! And I can do it cutely! I raided Hobby Lobby for a hat box and some adorable trays and such and will soon have an adorable loli style vanity.

I once flew across the country specifically to eat macarons.

I have a stuffed tribble I got shortly after I started wearing Lolita. I normally dress him up each morning to match my coordinate.

His name is Trouble.
