Two outfits for work

What I wore during two of my working days. Probably when I am doing my frilly commissions. I used to think I have fallen out of love with this style but when I try to pick out the dresses from my closet for a closet sale, I just can't. I thought, Summer Finn is right.. Who cares? I'm happy. Do what you want as long as it feels right.

Tutti Frutti Sunrise for Ysaii

Hmmm. Dresses and commissions three journals in a row eh? I am dealing with so much problems at home that I find refuge in designing and dressmaking. Thank you to my cousins who always try to test my temper..you just don't know how much drive you bring to my productivity. :))

Anyway, here is a commissioned piece for my client and friend, Ysaii. It's a simple lolita dress with scallop hemline, sweetheart neckline, and puffed sleeves. Fabric provided by the client.

Punk basics

This post is going to be very short since I feel extremely sleepy during this time of the day. Here are photos of my latest completed commission for Mr. Jeffrey. It's a medieval inspired punk set and a purple skirt. He gave me references for the design so I just altered it a bit to make it a little less costume-y but more of wearable.

Behind the Frills and Jasmine Tea II

I guess it's fate. Everytime I feel like I've grown out of lolita, things happen. Things that make me fall in love with it over and over again. One of the reasons are the things, I, myself have started. It cannot help but follow me. Lolita have not only became a hobby, a fashion, or a lifestyle in my life. It also became my responsibility. Why such a strong word? Because now, there is already an existing family. Thank you so much for the new and old faces of The Philippine Gothic and Lolita Community for keeping this family alive even with my not-so-constant presence in the community. Thank you.

Last Saturday, our family celebrated it's two years of love and friendship. Just another day of pure clean fun. I really must make it a goal to arrange a better event for these girls next time. Everyone was just so supportive to each other. I love them.
