Been a While

I got to admit that I haven't posted to this nearly as much as I wanted to, but I'm in Portland now! I have to say, it is amazing and I'm so happy I'm here.

Unfortunately in the process I sold nearly all of my jsks! My Little Bear cafe was first to go, followed by my Creamy Soda Pop JSK-- I wasn't fond of the material of LBC and Baby's JSKs have a tendency to be too square-cut in the bodice to fit my small bust properly.

And just recently I decided to part with my Miracle Candy set in black, I'm too much of a sweet Lolita to want to wear the black version and I still have the skirt in pink. Now I'm looking to sell off my Dreaming Macaroon skirt. It's all so weird how much I loved these prints and then fell out of love with them just as quickly.

So now I'm in the market to build my Lolita wardrobe back up and in the process parting with about 6 extra blouses / tops [funnily enough I've collected so many but I barely wear three different ones-- and I'm keeping six!]

On other news however I've been attending meet-ups like crazy and I'm just in love with doing so! It's so much fun.

I went to the Pittock Mansion meetup that Katie held. The mansion was gorgeous and so were the grounds and thankfully it was much cooler on that day than the previous one! It was the first one I attended that wasn't in some way connected to a convention and it was so nice to see all the girls I hardly see outside of once or twice a year.

The obligatory mirror shot! They had so many full length mirrors there.

I also went to Portland Pride with my roommate Lindsey in Lolita!

Obligatory make-up shot

Portland Pride was amazing and it's a bit of a culture shock to have people approach you and instead of asking WHAT you're wearing, tell you you're an amazing Lolita. I love living in a bigger city! I've never been called gorgeous so many times in my life.

There's another Lolita meet-up coming up next weekend and I'm a bit nervous because I wanted to get something new to wear but it seems like it's going to be hard to find something in time, unfortunately. But I have some much loved prints that I should definitely show off a bit more!

I've only heard of good things about Portland so far. I'm glad you like it there.
That mint wig looks really great on you!
