Style Focus Update = Wa Lolita

Hello Lovelies~

 Seems forever since I last did a post like this, but it's time for another Style Focus. And wouldn't you know it, It's seems like every time I go to do this, someone is putting out another Wa Lolita piece. For an obscure, hardly seen style, it sure is everywhere this year.

...Or maybe it's my wishful thinking, But! Metamorphose did just release new Wa prints, so Here I am to promote them and spread the word!

First we have my favorite piece~

This is dress is very Baby Doll with its high waist, not really something to be worn on it's own, but the nod to the kimono folds on the front is super cute!

 I love how Bold and Bright the colors are. It is a really fun look for anytime of year, but I'd recommend it for summer wear mainly.

You can probably tell I favor the red print more than the turquoise, but each has their own character and voice. Both striking and elegant, but not with out their draw backs.

 I really can't see this print being worn out grocery shopping or to formal parties. This is more of a On a whim, cheer yourself up dress. Or, something for a photoshoot. I dress to say you own, because it's beautiful and it really does call to you, but again, it's hard to find a place to wear it.

Over all : I want it! It is on my dream dress list, but this is not a dress for the shy or faint of heart. Take head when falling in love with it.

 Next we have the traditional Jumperskirt~

Unlike the previous design which is only offered in two colors, this dress is offered in three. Purple and Black, Pink and Red, and Navy Blue and Black.

 The print is beautiful and rich. It is a saturated and mature color palate and perfect for every season. While the flowers are bold, the cut of the dress of the dress lends well to everyday wear while the colors are matchable to most wardrobes.

One of the best options with this dress is the detachable flower from the middle of the bow that seems to dominate and distract from the beauty of this dress. It's my personal opinion, but I can't help but think the bow would be better served in back.

 But the flower, as pictured below, it removable and with a simple application of hot glue, it could easily be combined with an alligator clip to make a cute hair accessory ^_^

So! What do you think? Anyone planning to turn Wa Lolita anytime soon? Lol I plan to just as soon as I find the right pattern at my local fabric stores.

Playing with your Food

Hello Lovelies~

 Lately I have been obsessed with cute food, or rather, how to make it. I've been to a lot of sites on how to create Betnos and the like and finally, after months of being to chicken to try, pulled out a couple carrots and tried my hand at making Carrot Flowers.

They didn't turn out to bad if I do say so myself.  After making them and taking pictures of them, I ate them ^_^ It was a cute and delicious afternoon snack.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone around the world. Though 'Thanksgiving' is mainly celebrated here in America, you needn't be descendant from Pilgrims to be thankful for the people and things in your life. So give thanks today and share the day with friends and family!

My Thankful List

Hello Lovelies~

 Thanksgiving is almost here and while this holiday has become about the food for the most part, it's still a time to take a moment and deeply reflect on what we are thankful for each year. I was already thinking of writing a post such as I am now, but when I saw that the Beautiful 'Ramble Rori' had done one just the same, I figured what the heck, she did it first, give her the credit!

So this is my 'Thankful List' as inspired by the great post by 'Ramble Rori' and you can find the original Here.

 1) I'm thankful for the wonderful people in my life that push me to be a better person, even though I'm stubborn and don't like or want to change.

2) I'm thankful for the love that has entered my life and while quite, is always there when I need him.

3) I'm thankful for my new job and the people I work with. They are all unique and fun to be around and they make the day go by so quick!

4) I'm thankful for my developing sewing abilities, without them I'd have to rely on others to make me the clothing I truly want and that can get expensive after awhile.

5) I'm thankful for my friends. For the New friends and Old friends, Close friends and Friends who are far away. I'm thankful for them all.

6) I'm thankful for the ability to be me is a world that wants me to be like everyone else.

And finally...

7) I'm thankful for the beauty I've had come into my life this year and hope it continues into the next year.

Well, that's my list. What are you thankful for? I'd love to hear your list ^_^

Homemade Cutie!

Hello Lovelies~

   With Christmas coming up, I decided to try my hand at something I've wanted to do for a long time, but just haven't felt skilled enough to do. But the other day was watching 'Dancing with the Stars' and got this over whelming urge to try my hand at Plushie Making.

So I pulled out so scrap fabric I'd picked up earlier in the month, threaded my needle and set to work Drawing out, then carefully cutting, then puzzling over the stitching until I finally got it right. It turned out super cute, so I'm going to make more!

  Here is the result of my experiment....

Cute huh? Here's one from another angle...

And because he needed a face and I didn't have any buttons right one hand, I used Pins!

What do ya'll think?

 Look for the DIY tutorial on how to make this little cutie for yourself coming soon!

Penning Letters: A Lost Art?

Hello Lovelies~

  While I was waiting for my manager to open the back office so I could clock out at work, I was hanging out in the Fine Art section and while browsing about, I happened to look to my left and see an entire section of quill nibs, wooden bodies, and pots of ink, just sitting on a shelf as if it were the year 1800 and everyone, including their sister-in-law's mother's step brother is carving out the time in their busy day to sit down at truly write a letter.

I know the intention is for wedding invitations and the like, but it got me thinking about my own neglected Quill set hiding in my room and I longed to truly sit and write someone. But Who?

 With information able to be sent faster than the speed of light, why sit down and pen a letter to someone when E-mail is so easy? By the time the letter is received the news is old, though the opinions still valid.

So why do it? 

 Simple. Because e-mail is so easy, people never get mail that isn't Junk or Bills. Sure the occasional Holiday card is received, but even that is getting side lined by e-cards and the instant no postage required attitude.

Hand writing a letter let's someone know that you took the time out of your day to sit and think about them for however long it took you to write the letter. Whether you use a Quill like I like to, or you use a pen or even a pencil, it's a more heart felt way to say, 'I Love You'.

 So before you sit down and fire off an e-card or write a two page long e-mail to your Sister telling her about the wonderful family trip you just took, think about the surprise and joy your receiver will get when they find your letter in the mail, tucked between the coupons for Pizza Hut and the Midnight Velvet catalog.

Happy Writings!
