Ita to Lolita

Posted on: August 22, 2014

This month’s theme on EGL is “Ita to Lolita: transformations” So here is my contribution:

 

So, as I have mentioned before, my first dress was a Bodyline OP I bought (totally overpriced) at Megacon back in 2010. Yikes. It was several sizes too large, and the detachable sleeves big enough to hide muffins inside them. But I love that shade of blue! [Far left image]

Back in the beginning I relied heavily on Claire’s. I also thought that white knee high socks with lace were a MUST HAVE and put them with every single outfit, complete with matching white ballet flats or, my feet despised this, black mary jane heels. My bodyline was quickly deflating. And for a while there I was intending to switch from Classic to Punk (Hint: It didn’t work. Ripped tights with florals was alright, but my plain tank top and plain black cropped sweater were so….bland…..) So back to Classic and Country it was. It took me a while to realize that cream blouse X cream base skirt was so….empty a canvas, and that socks and accessories really do matter. (I still don’t wear a lot of jewelry but I’m getting there.)

So! I see a good deal of improvement, although I still have attachments to ankle socks (your mileage may vary) and sleeveless tops (Summer conventions….why)

Hair growth progress- As of June 2015- I regularly trim my own bangs and they look amazing- choppy and short. The split ends have ruined lives and murdered small children. I haven't had a proper salon cut since July 2013. I might get a trim of 4ish inches by the end of the summer? I'm lazy.
