Favourite Snaps of the Week

Happy New Year everyone! This is the first post on Strange Girl for 2013, and hopefully I can get to posting on a regular basis now that I have the time again.

(I am STILL having problems with Blogger, bear with me as I attempt to sort out the pictures properly).

My first choice for this week is a shot taken of Rui for the Grimoire online shop. I love the burst of green!

My next snap is also from Grimoire, and features Kaori. She looks positively doll-like, I love her new hair!

Lastly, from a nod to old-school dolly with it's use of jewel-tones and fur stole. I also love her Ahcahcum Muchacha cat bag!

I hope everyone had a great holiday and I'm looking forward to posting more this year!

Favourite Snaps of the Week

Snaps are back! I'm using a new blogger app so bear with me!

This is a lovely coord from Midori that was shot for the Grimoire online store a few weeks ago. I had saved it to feature here and then became too busy of course! at any rate, I love how cozy it looks! I'm especially into her fur collar and tassel belt.

New from Grimoire: Verum "Classical Lithograph" Tights & New Shop Staff!

Grimoire certainly has been working overtime building up a tights catalogue! It seems like every time I take a peek at the Grimoire and Almadel blogs, Hitomi is announcing another beautiful selection to the Verum line (I am not complaining though!).

And so far as beautiful Verum tights, these are no exception, and exactly what the description would tell you: a lovely (if not simple) sheer tight with a beautiful "lithograph" style print in either black or white. While we're used to the Verum brand being a little more colourful and detailed print-wise, Hitomi says the simplicity of these are tights is "I tried to produce. . . Also easy to match any clothes with the image of a classic tights I should make working as a coordinating accent also easy to match any clothes really." So basically, they will match anything.

The tights come in four new prints: Angel Wing, Walpurgisnacht, Silent night, and Jardin de fleurs.

"Angel Wing" is my personal favourite, but you can click HERE to view the entire Grimoire blog entry.

Also in Grimoire news today, a new shop staffer, Rui, has been hired! And of course, she's adorable! I had seen pictures of her earlier on Instagram, but it gave no clue as to who she was. I'm excited to see how her style develops!

New Offering from Grimoire: Verum Classical Sheer Tights

Beautiful new tights in six new prints from Grimoire's tight brand "Verum". What makes these unique (aside from the new prints) from their previous tights is that these are sheer, much like the japanese tattoo tights that are so popular right now. I really love the cross prints!

A Dolly Kei Coord for Feeling Nostalgic

It's been ages since I've posted a personal outfit coordinate (aside from worky outfits on tumblr and instagram), and I was feeling inspired by the cooler weather and the general nostalgia I've been having for older Dolly kei styles (putting together sets upon sets for tumblr will do that I suppose, hehe!) Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good full-length shot. But! I did get a few good detail shots in it's place.


I was really inspired by Miwako's make-up! I'm not always the biggest fan of her coords, but I always love how she does her blush. I also have always loved red lipstick with Dolly, so I decided to give it a try myself. I'm really happy with it!



My blouse and skirt are incredibly old H&M, fake fur stole is vintage, shoes are Jeffrey Campbell, Necklaces are Fashionably Dead and F21, Tassel is second hand, rings are from all over the place, cross earrings are Claire's, tights are H&M, and my hair piece is handmade.


And in case anyone likes my make-up, my powder is MAC Studio Fix in NC15, my lipstick is MAC Red, my blush is MAC but I'm not sure of the colour because the name is worn off, my eyeliners are Urban Decay in Zero and Yeyo, my shadow is Urban Decay's "Black Palette" in Barracuda, and my mascara is Benefit's "They're Real!".

I hope every is having a really lovely evening, and I hope you enjoyed my coord :)
