Favorite Snaps of the Week

I've chosen these coords for the sheer simplicity of them. Basic looks, minimal layering, but still so very dolly. Perfection, and it illustrates that you don't need an entire closet of vintage or massive amounts of layers to achieve the look. These snaps also illustrate in a lovely way how accessories can really make an outfit in dolly kei.

March Wishlist

I haven't done a "Wishlist" (aka things I'll probably be getting) post in a while, so here's what I've been eyeing lately:

Lace shorts! I don't wear pants, but I think I can do a cute pair of lace shorts. I think they'd be really cute with a printed or opacity tight, and the vintage feel would be right at home in dolly kei (or this black forest mori I've been looking into...).

A giant cross connector ring. They look scary, therefore I want one. Disaya Teddy Bear Necklace? They seem to be sold out everywhere *sigh*. Vivienne Westwood Skull Bead Necklace...also seem to be sold out everywhere *giant drawn out dramatic sigh*.

Juliette et jsk??? What is this beautiful madness? I'm not sure, but my heart and mind are screaming YES, and I'm not going to argue. Lastly, Jeffrey Campbell "Night Walks" in velvet. These are just so perfectly strange looking. I probably will fall over and die, but I'll have a smile on my face.

What has everyone been looking at adding to your wardrobes lately?

Favorite Snaps of the Week

Back from my hiatus!

From the Grimoire Almadel blog. I love Miwako's choice of the white lacey skirt with her otherwise dark outfit.

From This reminds me of a lot of Saki's looks from when I first discovered dolly kei (obviously not Saki here).

Miyoshi, from the Grimoire blog. I'm in love with suspenders at this point.

Kaori, from the Grimoire Almadel blog. The dark tights and shies with the airy white dress, so love. I think I'm going to be doing this a lot this spring.
