January Coordinates: Hello, 2014!

This year, I was inspired by tumblr to start taking pictures of my coordinates before I put them on, so that it's easier for people to see the details and accessories. I really like doing it this way now, so hopefully I can stick with it for the rest of the year as well!

I'm also really starting to have a thing for bonnets, in case you couldn't tell... If you follow me on tumblr, you'll have seen these already, but keep on after the cut for five outfits~

The first is for a casual (last-minute) meetup at a local cafe for lunch. Sometimes we just get bored and want to dress up!

Next is from the Getty Museum meetup--I tried to go for an "OTT Classic" feeling with the outfit.

For the LIEF event, I didn't have any LIEF items (yet), so I wore handmade and offbrand to try and show a bit of support for indie work. My first time attempting a red x black outfit, too, so I hope it didn't come across as ita...

This month, I did a photoshoot with a new photographer at the park. I wanted to do something that would really showcase my personal sewing and design work, so almost the entire outfit is handmade. It was also the first time in a several years that I did a completely black coordinate!

Last but not least, I finally wore my special set outfit for the monthly swap meet. I traded the original JSK I that I got for the JSK II, which fits soooo much better than the other cut! I'm really happy with it.

Is it weird that I already have most of my outfits planned out for February? I'm really looking forward to having so many opportunities to wear Lolita this year!
