Sunday! Kind of a lazy day - I wore this for the afternoon, including a trip to Future Shop.

Sadly, this is probably the last outing for this particular JSK until next fall. I love the print - it reminds me of Emily Temple Cute - and it's very comfortable, but the heavy velvet and lining make it impractical to wear in the summer. Which is a shame, since this is pretty much my lolita fashion comfort food; it's comfortable, pretty without being too attention-grabbing, and always makes me feel lovely.
Also, I've broken the strap on my brown mary janes, and have been reduced to wearing slouchy boots with my classic lolita dresses until I get them fixed :(
The trunk was salvaged from a neighbor's garbage. I love using vintage suitcases and trunks for storing stuff in the basement - so much cuter than cardboard boxes!
Turtleneck, boots: off-brand
Vintage suitcase: from the neighbor's curb!

Not exactly lolita, but I thought this was worth posting since a/ it incorporates some design elements from the fashion and b/ I'm pleased with how it turned out. The mix of the classic-style braid loops, straw mini-hat and Alice Auaa-inspired feather trim on the blazer make it feel like "me," but is still practical for a day of running errands.
And yes, I need black sneakers :)
Mini-hat: le Chateau
Jacket: thrifted & modified with feathers
Jeans: Old Navy
Shirt: screenprinted by me
Bag: Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Crown ring: Claire's
Nothing from this weekend, as I generally don't wear lolita for work events.
