Day 6 – 10 things you can’t live without in lolita
This is pretty similar to Day 2, isn’t it?
- Macaron Hearts
I don’t have the chance to wear loli on a regular basis, so I’m always glad for the opportunity to wear it when I’m out with my friends! We really don’t do much while in loli, the activities of the day usually involve cafes and food and a lot of gossip, but I enjoy every minute of it.
I’m such a sucker for sales, I love finding “deals”! Trips to Japan means a lot of shopping at Closet Child, where I’ve managed to pick up lovely dresses at excellent prices!
I must have my headbow! Or hairband! Or hat! I get a bit agitated when I don’t have anything in my hair. The most versatile hair accessory I have are my pearl hairbands, which I wear with everything. Occasionally I wear them with headbows too.
Although I’m not as big a wristlet fiend as Steph, I do like accessories like necklaces and bracelets. Once again, I generally have some sort of bracelet or cute ring on while in loli. If not, my wrists and hands just generally feel naked. =\
- Magazines and Mooks
I get my coordi ideas and information on new releases from my mooks! Mooks of choice are KERA and GLB. I usually go with KERA, it’s monthly, affordable and generally I prefer their less “traditional” coordis compared to GLB.
There is a Chinese saying that goes “There are no ugly women, only lazy women.” As someone who isn’t blessed with naturally glowing skin and all-around good looks, I do have to depend on makeup to help in that aspect.
My new love! Haha. At the end of the day, I sometimes want to remove my panniers to go home. The eco-bags, which stash small in my lolita bag, come in useful in holding the poof.
Speaking of panniers, lolis can’t live without them, can we? I wear two panniers usually, because I really want poof. My panniers of choice at the moment are this Bodyline one which I wear next to my skin because of the lining, and ManiaQ candy-coloured panniers. I like this because it’s a splash of colour if I accidentally flash anyone my panniers. 😡
And of course, what is loli without friends? I love my Sparkly Bits to pieces!
As non-regularly as I post here, I really do adore this blog and it really cheers me that I have readers, yes all 5 of you! I also like my Twitter friends feed! I don’t necessarily tweet a lot or answer, but I do keep up with all the posts very regularly.
