I feel good today. Not only I am more relaxed, I was also able to satisfy my personal creative cravings. It's been a long time since I made something that is just out of my need to make something. Designing has been an obligation during the past few weeks for I am always meeting deadlines with school and my clients. It's much more different when I design just because I want to.
It has been a rainy month and I feel like using hues to be in harmony with the cold weather. Here is my newest accessory series out of my weekend boredom. :)
A little generic though for my judgment but if you've known me for quiet a while you should know I seldom use darker themes. Change is good, right? :)
Anddd, here are photos of me modeling them. *hides* IKR! I don't look like my usual self in these photos. But I like it because I can finally show my forehead to the world. haha! I used to think I look stupid without bangs. :))
I'll be selling them in Dorotee Sweetlips' page. If you like them, please visit. Series named after Etna of the Playstation RPG game, Disgaea.
Bonus pic of my eye make. The colors look darker in actual. Another out-of-my-box attempt. :)))

My look to school last Wednesday.
Blouse: local market
Skirt and bow: made by me
Hello! It's been raining like crazy in my city these past few days due to the storm. And because of that, classes were suspended and even my thesis defense which is supposed to be done yesterday was postponed. I'm really disappointed for I've been wanting to finish things this week so I could go back to my normal routine next month.
This month has been very insane for me. I was too busy that I could only go online for like two to three times a week. Also, there were few clients that have been stressing me off: setting appointments and canceling them on the last minute. I hope people would understand how much I value every second of my time because you see, I don't have much left of them for myself. Every second falls to work, school, work, and school. I'm mentally and physically exhausted as of the moment.
I own the whole day today for classes were suspended but even though I had the chance to finally relax, this house also carries a whole load of stress. My mom is scolding everyone every time. Well, not scold scold but she just frequently do it due to old age I think. Just moments ago, she's been telling me how careless I was not turning off the computer the other night. Gawd! I was doing my thesis that night and I was too drained that I didn't even knew I fell asleep. Thus, not turning off the computer and leaving all my mess in the living room. -_-" I don't have a habit of answering back for it would only leave bad feelings and would only lengthen the argument. But gahhh.. I think I'm going crazy.
Anyway, sorry for the rant. I just needed to vent and this blog is my happy place. I know after this, I'd feel better.

Please don't hate me but I found another Emily Temple Cute piece from a thrift store last week. Got it for less than $2.
It's just a simple cutsew but I really like it for I wear lolita in a daily basis. It's been too hot for lolita these days. This would be comfy!
--------------------My outfit last Sunday. I did not went out of the house but I just felt like dressing up for I had my roots done last Saturday. My last retouch was April and my hair have grown around three inches since then. It has been unsightly seeing those virgin black hair peeking on my roots. Glad I had it done again at my friend's salon and nail art spa. I'll have my nails done by them too soon so I could also write a feature for them.
dress and cardigan: local market
headband: from a friend
bow brooches: Bodyline

I wasn't able to blog much last month due to how hectic my schedule was (duh, it still is!) because of my thesis and my pending couture jobs. So here is a compilation of the stuff I got from last month a.k.a shopping spree. :))
Most of these are thrift finds because I really love shopping at thrift shops. You could find one of a kind pieces for dirt cheap and who knows? Finding "BRAND" is also possible. Let me rephrase that, a lolita brand.
Above is an off brand thrift find that I got for around $1. I've been looking for coats that I could wear with lolita since forever. I love the color and the lace is just sooo pretty.
A pink x black lingerie I got for around $2. I wasn't sure of keeping this at first but it's rare for me to find bustiers that's my size. I'm an extra small and most of the bustiers I find at thrift stores have large cup size. I don't know where shall I wear this yet. lol. :)))
Oh, did i mention brand? Yes! I found an Emily Temple Cute cardigan for just around $1! This is my second thrifted brand cardigan. I found a Moitie before. :)
Kinda casual but I just love the collar. I have a similar one that I wear under a JSK so that it would look like a capelet. Got it for around $2. Isn't the lace nice? :3
Cute soft denim shorts that I got for $1. I need more of these. :3
Got these at a local market for $3 for two. I have bought a similar one before and cut it short so I could wear it as shorts. I made a bow out of the remaining fabric after. I would do the same with these two.
More cuties to add to my tea party ware collection. I dream of having a coffee/tea parlor someday where I could also exhibit my works. Just like how Naoto do it. As of now, I would enjoy and fit myself first by having mini tea parties at home with my cats and some closest friends. :)
I forgot how much were these but these are also thrift finds. :3
Dress with smocked bodice and strawberry prints that I got for $2 from a street vendor. I thought I was over with my strawberry addiction but I still fall in love with strawberry motifs like this. I'm kinda meh with prints that is too childish but these.. These are just soooo love. I even thought of buying a couple of these, deconstruct it and make myself a dress out of it. I was just too lazy to make anything for myself that time. XD
Home sewing books from Book Sale.
Fact: One of my highschool career choices was Interior Designing.
I don't know if I have time to make some of the tutorials but they actually help me learn some techniques that I could use with dressmaking. I wish I have a sewing buddy that I could invite over for a sew-a-thon. :))
and lastly, a handmade doll from Ger Corpuz. Got it last Toycon where I met her for the first time.
Thank you so much for the support, Ger. :)
Sooo. That was it for the month of June. Not really much but I love each and everything. :3

Had dinner with my beau last Thursday at Atsu Atsu ramen house. It was raining all day so I was only able to take photos of my outfit in my room.

Better view of my headdress! <3

Omnomnomnom. It was sooo good! I'm not really a fan of japanese food but I can say that I'm craving for ramen while making this blog post. T3T
I love the fish tempura.
Before going home~
We used to go out every Thursday but we don't do it much these days for he's back with his studies and I'm busy with my school and couture services as well. I miss those times but I'm sure we'll have more of these in the future after having our priorities done. :)
