Hi friends! <3
Awhile ago, I joined a group on FB for lolita bloggers thinking it would be a great way for me to get motivated to blog more and also reflect on various topics more in depth. I put off posting due to being behind on my blogging, swearing that once I was caught up I would start taking part in it. I'm happy to say I am currently up to date, and excited to join in with the others. The group is called Lolita Blog Carnival. You can check out the group if you're interested at https://www.facebook.com/groups/lolitablogcarnival/
Each week you can vote on a topic you would like to blog about. The one with the most votes is the chosen topic for that week. You are not required to blog about it if you don't want to. If you do decide to blog, you are required to share links to other bloggers who have also written about it.
With that said, now let me think a bit. Hmm...
I would have to say that the one piece that I could never give away, would be this skirt and headbow set...
I bought it back in 2011 from a girl in the local comm shortly after I got into lolita fashion. She had posted it for sale and it immediately caught my eye. I had wanted to get into sweet style lolita, but was intimidated by all the pastel "girly" colors. Since this seemed to be a darker, more toned down version of that, I felt like it was something that I would be able to wear. It also features my favorite fruit; strawberries.
Look at those strawberries! Ooh... I love them so much! <3
It seems to be handmade and the quality is very nice. The girl I got it from had bought it from another girl online. I'm not sure who originally made it though. The skirt fits me perfectly with a little bit of shirring in the waistband for comfort. There are colorful fruit parfaits along the fabric and cute polka dots in the background. The headbow lays flat on one's head making for a more subtle look. It was a great starter piece for me back then and continues to be a favorite in my wardrobe even now. Since then, I have sold off almost all my lolita skirts except this one. I just can't bear to part with this one.
I especially like how versatile this piece is to wear. I've worn it to meet-ups, on casual days at work, and out to family gatherings. I can pair it with a blouse and cute jewelry, or just a simple cutsew for a more casual look.
