Finds! Dolly-able finds from H&M

Three great finds in H&M today!

Firstly, these oxfords. Anyone who follows my blog or my Tumblr knows of my love affair with oxford-style shoes. I've never had a brown pair though! However, that is now corrected with these vintage-looking fellas from H&M. They look old, the brown is perfect, and they have great detailing. They're not leather but they easily pass for it. Comfy too!

39.95$ Canadian

Secondly, this bag. Again, I love the vintage and worn look it has, and it's big! It has three interior pockets: a zippered one, one for your mobile phone and another just big open one. Again, also really looks like leather.

The lining. Has horses. LOVE.

39.95$ Canadian

Lastly, a faux pocket watch necklace. Not amazing, but I love the domed top. I'll be adding some things to it to make it more interesting.

12.95$ Canadian

I was so excited to get these since lately I haven't been really finding dolly-able things at "regular" stores. I also think they'll work great with the Classic Lolita wardrobe I'm working on, and would also be nice for all you Mori Girls and Boys out there :)

Arcade Fire love

Last night I saw Arcade Fire live (with opening act Final Fantasy). This is the second time I've seen them, and they were every bit as amazing as the first time. Brilliant, witty, lovely, moving and so gracious to the audience.

They closed with Sprawl II, and it was one of the most amazing things I've ever witnessed.

(Wyn also mentioned that they had filmed the video for " We Used to Wait" while they were here :) )

Favorite Snaps of the Week

Late! I went to bed early and forgot :(

Hitomi from the Grimoire Almadel blog. The dress is gorgeous and really doesn't need much added to it. Love!

Heri, Grimoire blog. I love the panelled dress over a lace top!

Saki, Grimoire Almadel. Pants! Enough said.

This is really more along the lines of Cult Party, but it's cute and I love the tassely bag! From

Outfit Post!

I haven't posted one in a while since my phone camera is baaaaaad for this usually. But I really liked my outfit for work today, so meh, here's some fuzzy little pictures for you :)

I have a really weird look on my face this whole time, just to warn you.

Then I decided I needed a brooch and less glasses.

I cropped off my chin, it was looking weird, lol.

I was going for a really understated look, with the accessories "doing the talking" so to speak. I like how by wearing all black, they pop out do much. And since I chose to wear completely black, I made sure to have contrasting textures: chiffon/tulle dress and knits.

I'm wearing-
Dress: H&M Divided Black
Cropped cardigan: H&M Kids
Tights: Betsey Johnson
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell
Bag: Innocent World
Necklaces: Suppurate System, Claires, made by me.
Rings: Suppurate System, vintage, Camden Market
Hair piece: handmade
Brooch: I forget

Innocent World Antique Book Bag/ Tokyo Rebel review

The Innocent World Antique Book bags have been on my list of "dream items" since they were first released in their original size. Sadly, they were sold out, along with subsequent re-releases, before I could ever get one.

It almost happened to me again with the release of their new colour "Cafe Au Lait", until I saw that the bag was available at!

I placed my order on the 7th, and received confirmation right away. The next day they shipped it out, and sent me my shipping confirmation and tracking number. I received my bag on the 20th. Which might seem like a long time for EMS, but it was held at Canada customs for most of that time period, and wasn't Tokyo Rebel's fault.

The package arrived in perfect condition, very securely packed. (I forgot to take pictures of the packing, I was too excited to open it!).

Yay brand shopping bag! I love that they wrapped it in one!

This put me officially in love with Tokyo Rebel. A hand-written thank-you card. Little curtesy details are so lovely :)

So the actual purse:

It's absolutely beautiful, and really looks like an antique book. I was originally concerned about the colour and whether or not it would match my Lolita wardrobe. No problem though! It suits my Dolly Kei wardrobe to a t, and will go great with the classic wardrobe I've been working on.

The details are all lovely!

The bag is also a really good size and is good for everyday use.

Along with the zippered outside pocket, there is also another on the inside along with another that is ideal for your cellphone.

All this will fit inside with room to spare! As you can see, it also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap.

All in all, I'm very happy with both the bag and Tokyo Rebel's service. I'll definitely be ordering from them again :)

Favorite Snaps of the Week

This should have been done yesterday, I apologize for the late post!

I choose this coord from Saki at Grimoire, for her use of a very form-fitted silhouette. Definitely not what we usually see in Dolly, but it works and she looks adorable.

No particular reason for this one, I just think that she looks really cute. Heri, from the Grimoire blog.

Inspiration Tuesday will be up in a few hours!
