I wore this outfit for a tea session with the girls last Saturday at Octa Hotel Cafe :)
JSK: Innocent World
Choker: Mary Magdalene
I love this dress *____* The contrast of cream on black really shows off the delicate print without being as stark as white on black. You can’t really see it here due to the bolero but the neckline of the JSK is heart-shaped and really flattering! It’s shirred at the back too, so there are comfort points too, hee. ♥ Also, you can’t quite see it but the tights are lace-printed! :3
There was a bit of a debate during the tea session among the girls about whether this outfit was more gothic or classic. I think the lace choker probably detracted from the general classic feel and lent a more romantic edge to the outfit. I like this fusion though! It’s as if I get to combine the elements I love from both styles into one. :)
Met with the girls today at Chris Tea House for a quick lolita and dollie meet!
I don’t know if I was having overly high expectations before I went but in all honesty, I left rather disappointed. I mean, the decor was nice but they have a No Photography rule, so guests can’t take pictures. I don’t really mind except it wasn’t stated in their Facebook page, so it came unexpected when we went there assuming that we’d be able to snap a few casual shots of ourselves and the dolls.
Second, I think there was some confusion over our food orders. I’m usually quite okay with such things because I understand that it can be quite hard to get every detail right when it’s a fairly large group of people, but not everyone is as forgiving. ^^;; Hungry people are angry people. The scones were good though!
Anyway, despite the No Photography rule, I wasn’t quite the law-abiding citizen and sneaked a couple of photographs anyway, lol.
OP: Mille Fleurs
Headdress: Moi meme Moitie
Choker: Mary Magdalene
It’s one of those times again when I can’t decide whether my outfit should fall into the gothic or classic category, lol. Anyway, I’m a bit undecided about this dress because I thought it looked far too long on me. :/ I’m happy to be able to use the MM choker at long last though, hahaha. I’ve had it for years and never found an occasion to wear it until now. Loving the tights too, it’s definitely one of my happy purchases from Taobao, hee. I wish I had worn different shoes though! But I didn’t have time to fix my Metamorphose platforms :(
And lastly, an obligatory picture of the little girls who joined us at the table today :D
This photoshoot was done in February last year when I needed to beef up my portfolio. Recently, I re-visited this set of photos and re-edited all of them and I’m quite pleased with the results.
Model: Teresa L.
Photography, styling, post-processing: Jasmine K.
These were shot at a long-defunct railway track in Singapore. It was a sweltering day and I can’t imagine how my model must have felt, having to wear such clothes in such unforgiving weather! D: We started shooting later than planned due to styling delays, so even though we had planned to shoot earlier to avoid the period where it’d be really warm, we ended up in the heat anyway. >_<
Did this a few days ago for the LiveJournal egl community’s January theme, which was Wardrobe Posts!
Sorry about the weird lighting in some of the pictures; it’s been raining almost non-stop for a few days and my home is really dark.
I’m in the midst of a style shift from classic to gothic and I like wearing ETC for casual/otome-kei wear AND the occasional sweet-till-idk-what-i-was-thinking stuff, so the stuff in my wardrobe end up looking rather ‘mixed’. ^^;; I don’t know how to classify what sort of loli I am because of this (I like a bit of everything!), but I think what matters more is that one wears what they like instead of sticking steadfastly to a certain style just because anyway. (of course, there’s nothing wrong if you are completely happy sticking to just one style!)
