Autumn, Come Back Soon.

I have reached that inevitable point in the summer where I'm done with this season! I feel least myself in the summer, and I think I look least myself in the summer. I need my autumn wardrobe back! I need the crisply comfortable fall days. And it can't happen soon enough.

Autumn, Come Back Soon.

Favorite Snaps of the Week

Back from Cape Breton! I found some neat places there and will have some pictures up tomorrow (if you follow my Instagram, you've already seen some!).


Yukari in a solid black outfit. Her sandals make it very dainty, and as always, I am SO jealous of her beautiful hair! From the Grimoire Almadel blog.

This isn't dolly kei in the strictest sense, however, close enough that I'm going to use it. You could argue cult party as well. But. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS. I am thrilled with her use of a corset, and in love with the hair/floral wreath combination. I want to put together something like this for work. ALL OF MY YES.

Updates, Updates, Updates

Updating! I'm still working on the new layout and colour-scheme, so if you're experiencing any glitches or weirdness, I apologize. (I have no idea what I'm doing, hehe.).

I'm also in the process of updating the information and links pages. I don't think I've updated them since I started Strange Girl, and some things within the fashion have certainly changed in the last few years. I would like to have a comprehensive list of "personal" dolly kei blogs and/or tumblrs, give me your links!

I"m also thinking about starting a flickr account so that anyone can see my collection of dolly kei pics and snaps I've been saving, would this be helpful to anyone?

Back to updating/lurky-looing cgl. There's a nice thread up at the moment dumping pics of dolly and cult party! Go take a look before it gets lost in the abyss.

Hope everyone is having a lovely afternoon! It's gloomy and rainy here, which is the perfect weather for me to get things done. I'm on vacation for the next two weeks, and after my brother's wedding I have no plans, so hopefully I can get up some more accessory tutorials and things :)

New Offerings from Grimoire

The first new item from Grimoire is sort of an interesting (or strange) one depending on how you look at it:

Temporary, or "sticker" tattoos featuring imagery from many of the common themes in Dolly Kei. This is sort of a strange idea to me, but I will admit the images are very pretty and I would like to have a pack, if only to add to my dolly kei collection. Grimoire is offering ten package designs, which you can see on their blog, along with photos of the shop staff wearing the tattoos in various ways.


Grimoire also stocks these lovely paper fans from Old Print Factory! So pretty!

So what are your thoughts on the tattoos? Weird or a great idea?

Hello Everyone!

Sincerest apologies for the lack of posting in the last couple of weeks! I've been very busy, but I'll be back this week with favorite snaps, inspiration posts, and all my usual things.

I'm working on a new layout and design for Strange Girl. I've had this theme and layout since I began this blog, and I think it's time for something new! I'm still not 100% sure how it's going to look, but I'm thinking of going a little darker this time around!

As always, you can still find me on Tumblr, Twitter, Poupee Girl, and "DollyMacabre" on

Hope you're all having a lovely day!
