So I stayed home and spent my unexpected free time sewing :) I was planning on baking a bunch also but the pipes in the kitchen froze and the gas company was warning that there would be outages across the state :(
Mori for thrifting and an appointment. So amazingly comfy :) and so many visible layers (shirt, op, skirt, bloomer, coat, shawl).
My hair was half pulled up in a top bun with flowers and a little birds nest.
Henna! I love henna and have been doing it for about 7 years :) With my shopping list (I like having matching supplies, I have pads of paper in many different colors to go with different outfits), matryoshka dolls, and with leaf and ladybug nail polish.
Now some of the things I did during the snowpocalypse
I'm super excited about this whole outfit :D please excuse the un-ironed-ness and loose threads. It's a blue skirt with chiffon ruffles, a blue chiffon long vest, flowered apron, an over coat, neckwarmer, and lace and flower pin. The shirt and hat I had already.
I was going for a natural kei feel with lots of layers and details. The overcoat is light and soft, so hopefully will be usefull into spring weather. The skirt I'm excited to use with cream and gold accents for classic loli :) I'm dyeing some rose lace to go above the top line of ruffles (inspired by the brand chantilly) so it's not totally finished yet.
And my favorite little thing right now, a tea tag necklace! I love the look of cute paper tea tags hanging over the edges of teacups so I made this necklace, it sits hanging off set for a whimsical look and has golden little swirlies in the corner. I want to make a matching bracelet next with several different 'flavors' :)
Next post will be another wig tutorial (I'm editing it right now:) It should be up later tonight!
