The life, style, and derp of a small-town girl. Dress-up misadventures, crafting frustrations, and little obsessions can be found here.

This blog is full of my face. You have been warned.

 

Gloomy skies ahead?
I left for work yesterday and the skies were looking pretty gloomy. While I don’t particularly look forward to the inconveniences of commuting during the rainy season, I want to escape from the ridiculous heat. :(

Briar Rose (on LOOKBOOK.nu)
I was originally planning to wear a Maleficent-inspired coord when I manage to watch Maleficent, but decided I wanted to wear something a lot lighter, hence the Briar Rose-inspired outfit. :) Dad asked me if I wanted to watch with him, and I hurriedly pulled this outfit together. I’m still amazed that I managed to remember that I owned all these pieces, given the perpetual state of mess that my wardrobe is in. I should probably work on organizing it more. XD

Heading out to watch Maleficent! Today’s outfit is inspired by Briar Rose, more pictures soon! :3 I had to promise my dad I wouldn’t get up in the middle of the movie and sing while summoning tiny woodland birds. XD

Suddenly, lion mane! on LOOKBOOK.nu
I love, love, love poofy hair! I forgot to tease my wig when we were taking outfit shots, but I shook it out after a bit, for the portraits.

Attacking cupcakes! O u O
Had a derpy shoot with Mark again, this time we visited Vanilla Cupcake Bakery. I was drawn to this place because of its cute interiors. I swear I’ll get better outfit photos of this coord, I spent most of the shoot sitting down and well, attacking the cupcakes. XD
For now, I go back to real life, and get some rest before facing work. Our load just got a bit heavier. D:

Doing what I do best: DERP
I have this thing that I do when the photographers take a little longer to point the camera at me/us again. I make a stupid face up close. XD

Cranky Cupcake
It’s April 1, and people are posting all their “pranks” online. People are suddenly “in a relationship” or “getting married” or “pregnant.” I don’t know about you, but I feel like it’s disrespectful to joke about those things because they’re things that people actually have as part of their reality. :(
Here, have a picture of me being a cranky cupcake.

Dolldelight’s Kawaii Pinay Meet! ♡

image

I’ve known Cy of dolldelight for years. I first met her online four years ago, and had the pleasure of meeting her face-to-face a short while before she left for the US. I never quite knew when she was coming back for a visit, so it was pleasant news to find out she’s in the Philippines for a bit! 

She had a meet-and-greet in Tokyo Bubble Tea prior to this more exclusive one, which I didn’t get to go to. I came in pretty late for this one too, because of other obligations. That, and I had to drive really carefully lest I damage my car fixtures with my nail art, which I’ll post about later. XD

Outfit photo! I had two outfits planned for this meet, but went with a more himekaji-inspired look because I didn’t feel like being completely covered up with long sleeves and OTKs (I blame the heat in this country, haha). I insisted on showing off my nails because those were ridiculously difficult for me to stick on. XD I’ll be shooting my outfit some other time. This is probably the last time I’ll depend solely on my phone for photos of a meetup, the pictures turned out really bad. :(

A Sweet Mid-Week Pick-Me-Up on LOOKBOOK.nu
The sweet substyle of lolita really is where my heart is. I’ve been leaning towards more toned-down sweet, as proven by my more recent purchases and coordinates. However, nothing beats looking like a walking cake. XD and I love love love the strawberry print on this JSK.
Not sure if anyone has noticed, but I’m also a fan of using regular/non-lolita tops in my coordinates. I know that there’s a bit of hate going on for it, but it looks nicer to me. I like lolita blouses, but don’t want to be limited to that, either.
