OOTD : Casual, Crown Royale and Classic

My Chibi an I just got back from a weekend long excursion to the Rabbit's house for the Chib's 18th birthday. It gave me the perfect excuse to bring some pretty dresses and get all dolled up for the occasion, so here's my outfit of the day... for the last three days.

March 10th ~ Casual Girly

Blouse - Forever 21 | Under tee - Angelic Pretty | Skirt - Metamorphose | Bloomers - Metamorphose | Socks - Angelic Pretty | Shoes - Poetic License | Jewelry - Handmade | Hair clips - Handmade

My hair has gotten long enough to pull up into little spikey pig tails =O I feel like such a hippy DX - but until I can find a place who can do my cute, Aeon Flux style bob correctly, I'm stuck letting it grow so I figured I might as well make the best of it and actually start wearing some hair accessories or something.

Since I currently don't own any, I decided to make a few. Velvet ribbon + Silk flowers = pretty, yes?

The rabbit sent me some hot pink nail polish for Valentine's Day and I decided to paint hearts on my nails this week. Cute, yes?

March 11th : Crown Royale

Blouse - F+F | JSK - Bodyline | Bolero - Vintage | Bloomers - Handmade | Petticoat - F+F | Socks - Secret Shoppe | Sandals - Irregular Choice | Purse - Metamorphose | Jewelry - Handmade (except the Harlequin cookie ring, which is from Strawberry Victoire on Etsy) | Hair clips - Handmade

I haven't worn this JSK in a long while and I remembered why I love it so much when I put it on. I think it's a replica of one of AP's prints, but I'm not sure. I originally bought it because I liked the combo of crowns and music notes, plus at the time I had no white in my wardrobe and thought this would be a good start. It's such a cute dress and I really should wear it more often so it doesn't end up sitting untouched like it usually does.

March 12th - Classic Rori

Blouse - Forever 21 | JSK - Innocent World | Bloomers - Metamorphose | Socks - Offbrand | Shoes - Bodyline | Jewelry - a mix of Handmade, Silverworks and Vintage

And for stepping outside...

Bolero - Metamorphose | Fawn collar - Handmade

It was pretty warm out yesterday so I decided to wear my Innocent World JSK for the first time. It's so comfy and I really love it. I actually wish I'd used my DSLR to get snaps of these last two days worth of outfits because while my pink cam is good for most other things, when it comes to getting mirror shots, the details (and my pictures in general) as you can see, end up blurry and obscured. Ah well, it won't be the last time these outfits (or version of them) find their way into my daily wear, and until then at least you get the general idea. It was a little exhausting dressing up for three days in a row, but fun. Ever since the move I haven't gone out all that much (because I still don't know my way around) and so don't usually feel the need to wear rori as often as I'd like. It was a nice change, that's for sure.

The visit itself was a lot of fun, we had yummy Japanese foods (+ green tea iced creams. So. Delicious =O), made funfetti cake, homemade mac and cheese and more. Mister and the Rabbit's pup, Gretchen went through some introduction roughness, but once their initial excitement died down, they were getting along pretty well by the final day. The Rabbit and I watched some Game of Thrones, talked about life and the boys, hit some fabric and craft stores up while the chibi played with the pups, read and slept (xD) -it was a nice break from our daily routines and I'm looking forward to the next time life slows down enough for us to get away for a weekend again <3

  1. The weekend was good times, indeed, and I'm glad we got the chance for visits ^__^

    Loved all the outfits you wore this weekend. I'm still adoring those stripey sandals and the IW JSK. It's definitely worth the effort to dress up and look cute when it makes for so much happiness.

    That green tea ice cream = love. I so see myself indulging in it all summer long.
