February Coordinates: Berries and chocolate and clocks, oh my!

February was another busy month for Lolita, with a photoshoot, a couple of meetups, and Dapper Day at Disneyland! I've started sharing my outfits on Tumblr, and it's a lot of fun to see how far they go there. You can follow me at konekoanni.

I think my wardrobe transition from Sweet styles to Classic/Gothic is very nearly complete--though I did bring out some sweeter outfits for Valentine's Day. Keep going for the outfits~
The first meetup of the month was a Valentine's Day meet hosted by Fairytale Boutique. I had a lot of fun catching up with some of my friends from that area. We ended up leaving the party for a while to wander the "sad mall" and get some food, and found a cool painted wall to take pictures with.

The next day, I did a photoshoot with another local photographer at this lovely park with lots of Victorian-era houses. I went with a more Gothic outfit with black, gray/silver, and gold. I ended up changing the hair accessories from the outfit layout at the last minute, and ended up liking my second choice a lot better! For a full outfit shot, take a look at the photoshoot.

For the local Valentine's Day meetup, I decided on a chocolate-themed outfit in shades of brown. It's my ONE brown dress, so I'm really quite amazed that I have enough appropriate accessories! I also spent several hours that morning completely redoing the wig--I ended up combing out the curls and trimming it much shorter, but I think it's a lot cuter this way now.

I debated for a long time about what I wanted to wear to Dapper Day at Disneyland. Did I want to wear brand, or handmade? Classic or Gothic? Themed or normal? Eventually, I decided on indie brand, Classic, and un-themed. It was the inaugural wear of my newest JSK, too!

We ended up postponing the usual monthly swap meet to next week, because the weather was so scary on Friday! But even without the swap meet, it was a great month for Lolita. Thanks for looking~

  1. I absolutely adore every single outfit! I love the first dress because i've seen it live and the embroidery is just incredible. I don't think people know how great that dress is to be honest. The last has the most striking colors and gothic and classic are always appealing to me. <3
    Thank you for the dose of inspiration!
