Ideal and Horizon

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to go out with my dearest friend  we strolled for the city looking for a place to finally celebrate together the next International Lolita Day (we even have been planning our coord for almost three years now, lol).

For the occasion we decided to wear finally our A9 tees from their latest tour! They are incredibly long! Looked like a dress! (We even thought about wearing them as one next time, lol) I was wearing IDEAL BLACK TEE and my friend HORIZON WHITE TEE. Twinning but in different colour.

Finally we decided to go to a café we already knew, we took a look at the place and the menu, which counts with vegetarian options! I tried a vegetarian panini with salad and berries smoothie, then we decided that will be the place for our next meeting in Lolita!

Something I like about this place is that it has a huge mirror in the restrooms so we were able to take our mirror selfie! haha.

It was a lovely evening with one of my favourite persons ever, we cannot meet frequently but when we can it is amazing!

By the way, I was wearing a wig she gave me as a birthday present years ago!

H i l d e g a r d ♡ Lolita review

Hildegard JSK by Innocent World had been on my wishlist ever since I started Lolita. I fell in love with its simplicity yet elegance, and as I think it is a little rare I am so happy to finally own it! Thank you Closet Child for make Lolita dreams true.

But what!? It is not black!? Yes, it actually is navy! But you know? Navy is the only color I get to use aside from black, even in my every day clothes. And I will tell you a little secret: in fact it is the second non-black dress in my wardrobe! Haha.

As I already said, what I liked the most about this dress is the simply design it has, no print or too much lace, what makes it perfect for casual occasions and easy to wear in every-day life. Yet it has a very pretty lace up bodice at the back which makes it elegant too.

The military-like detail with the buttons is the pretty much the only adornment in the dress and I love it, the bow, the buttons and the lace are just too lovely. In all the dress details the lace is the same, a pretty roses pattern. I found interesting that the lace is coffee, such a curious colour combination with navy.

I mentioned it before, I bought this dress at Closet Child online shop, it is a second-hand shop so sometimes the clothes can have stains or missing parts and be damaged but the only thing I could spot was the neck bow became unstitched, but! for only 8,800¥ I think is totally ok!

In general, it is a dreamy dress, I loved everything about it. Even if it is not black I think I may be able to do a pretty gothic coord. I cannot wait to wear it!

S h e g l i t ♡ A Gothic Lolita's Dream

I would like to share one of my recent favourite brands: Sheglit. It is a japanese brand which designs are mainly elegant and gothic. Refined, classical and elegant shapes are some characteristics of the brand that made me fell totally in love with it!♡

I found out about this brand last year at my country's National Tea Party with Yuko Ashizawa (Atelier Pierrot's designer), as she sells the brand on AP's shop, and had a second chance of seeing it back in April because of my Japan trip but unfortunately in both occasions I had not the opportunity of buying any thing... 

Here are the items which have made me dream about for some time!

♡ "Servant"ボウタイブラウス
♡ "Arcturus"タックブラウス
I really love blouses with a bow tie on the neck! I like the contrast between them: one looking more sober and casual while the other more elegant with lacy details.♡

♡ "Orléans"レースアップベスト
♡ Cape Bolero ケープカラーボレロ 
I do not really wear overdresses but this one looks just so perfect! It adds a real goth touch in your coord! And the beautiful cape bolero.. what can I say? Flawless!♡

♡ "Spread"アシンメトリースカート
♡ "Restraint"レザーコルセット
The pleated, asymmetric cut of the skirt is everything.♡ I saw the corset and it was just too beautiful at my eyes! First at the Tea Party's fashion show and then at Laforet, what a gloom I felt for not being able to buy it! But I know you will be mine! 

♡ "Holy"バッスルショートワンピース
♡ "Cattleya"クラシカルワンピース
I know many Lolitas prefer JSK because of the multiple coords you can create with them just changing the accessories, easier than coordinating with OPs, but I definitely prefer OPs! Especially high-neck, long-sleeve, black OPs♡ Do I need to say some thing more? Haha

♡ "Lycoris Fawn"ドレスワンピース
♡ "Victorian"バッスルワンピース 
And of course, the longer the OP is, the better.

Here are some of my favourite coordinates by the brand!

I really hope to get something from Sheglit!♡ I think it works fine for both elegant and casual thanks to its sobriety and lack of print (which is definitely not needed!) My only complain about it is the price of course, but ahhh, all Lolita brands are so expensive! Sheglit's prices are not a surprice considering that. But one day...

Thank you for being born.♡

At this moment, in Japan is already July 5th. And? Why is it important? Why is it so important for me? Well, on this day my favourite human, the most important person for me was born.

It will sound ridiculous for many, how is it that the person you care the most about does not even know you? But believe me, he has given to me true happiness that nobody never gave me.

It is not a secret my favorite band is A9 and definitely not another one about my love for Shou, the vocalist. I still remember perfectly the firs time I heard and watched a video of Alice Nine (yes, they were Alice Nine before) and I immediately fell totally in love with them! The music, the aesthetic, the video, the lyrics: everything was just perfect! I have never in my life liked a band so much! And I never thought they would become an incredibly important part of my life.

Since that very first moment Shou caught my eye, I found his voice just so beautiful for this world and when I discovered he was the writer of all the lyrics I felt even more inspired by him! How can a person write such magical, delightful words? Lyrics in music have always been so important for me –that is one of the reasons why I dislike such current music with no feeling– and every song he writes is just full of feeling, full of pictures. I dare say I consider him a modern poet of our time; i have cried, smiled and laughed with his lyrics, and even more! They are just a huge bomb of feelings for me!

This year is even more important because finally, after following him for eight years (eight!!) I was able to see him in person, to hear his voice in a live! And I already talked about the concert and how I felt but this is my most precious memory and do not want to forget it! Every day since that day I smile back at the image of him singing, talking, smiling in front of me!

I express you my gratitude not only for that beautiful moment, but also for all others that you, with the power of your music, has given to me. Every song, every lyric, every video, every concert and every program fill my every-day with joy and grace.

Thank you for your smile. a smile that seems like a ray of sunshine passing through the gray clouds, a smile with a sweetest smell than a thousand flowers, a smile that feels like the fresh scent of a summer adventure into the woods, a smile that warms my heart like a thousand suns. The smile that blows sadness away. Because just one picture of your smile is enough for me to be happy the rest of the week.

Thank you for the silly moments, my Devil King thank you for the care you have for your friends and the fans, thank you for the effort you make every day to prove your best. Thank you for being yourself and do what makes you happy, because if you are happy, I am happy.

It is hard for me not being able to go to every single of your concerts (even if that is what I desire the most in life!) but wherever I am, I will always love you and support you, no matter what, because you changed my life. I cannot imagine how my life would be if I would have not known you, until this day you still are my number-one motivation in life, my inspiration, my light in the dark and my love.

And this is just a very little part of all I wanted to say, but I cannot find the words to express correctly all my feelings and gratitude for all you have done to me, at least I would like to say: thank you for being born.

将さん お誕生日おめでとうございます!♡ 産まれて来てくれてありがとうございます♡
