Things I Love Thursday: Breaking through Writer's Block


    It has been a fun week.  There have been some less than pleasant things.  But the bright spots help me keep going.  I have been suffering with some writer's block.  I finally started to break through it yesterday.  I am hoping I can keep this momentum.

Things I Love Thursday: I Got A Dream Dress


    I love keeping a list like this every week.  It helps me to remember that there are good things in my life rather than focusing on the bad things.  This week I got one of my dream dresses in.  I am so happy.  I just need a reason to wear it.  Not that I ever need a reason to dress up.  I'd just rather wear it out somewhere and I don't have anywhere to go at the moment.  Plus I want to take some time and do some writing.  Here are some of the things I have had fun with and loved this week.

Dream Dress Happy Dance!

    So yesterday night I got home exhausted from my day job to a fabulous surprise.  My package arrived!!   AHHHH!!!

    It was a long time before I started having a dream dress.  It was only in the last few years.  At first if asked all I could say was that my dream dress was basically any dress from Mary Magdalene.  I really love the look of their clothing.  When they came out with their first original print I wanted it.  To this day I'd still like to get Perfume Bottle Doll OP. Preferably in Lavender x White or Brown x Beige.

    Then there came a lovely dress from Kidsyoyo.  Voice of Music Violin Embroidery JSK.  I promised it to myself one semester if I passed my class.  My mistake was letting myself the dress would still be there at the end of the semester.  I would like to get it one day.  The burgundy one with the matching blouse.  So elegant and all those details.

    The third is a dress from Hell Bunny.  They have some great pieces that work perfectly with lolita fashion. I love foxes and they came out with Foxy 50s Dress in Mint.  There is even a matching cardigan.  This one is at least a little more attainable than the other two.

    Finally.  Earlier this moth at Anime Matsuri I was looking through the dresses in the vending room.  In Putumayo was looking through the dresses on the rack.  I liked the colors I saw on a piece and pulled it off to see the full dress.  It was perfect.  It was me.  It was elegant and detailed and I had just enough money to buy it on the spot, but I had to consider it and I was hungry.  Hunger always makes decision making harder.  If I bought it I would also have to be careful with food.  I looked over it a bit more and put it back on the rack.  I needed to eat.

    I still wanted the dress.  However there were a lot of small things I wanted to buy from artists and other stores.  So I put it off.  When I got back home i did not regret not getting it.  I still wanted it though and looked it up.  Tokyo Rebel had the dress in stock.  I had to wait for my pay day to get it.  I was going to have plenty to get it, but my awesome friend got it so it wouldn't be out of stock.  And here it is.



    I waited till I had slept to open it and try it on.  I was so happy to get it.  The dress looked just as good as it did at the convention.  Here are some pics!



 Tata for now,

Things I Love Thursday: Back To Blogging, Back To Work

    It has been some time since I blogged regularly.  I think I needed the break too.  Life can get stressful and I had some fun this past weekend at Anime Maturi.  I got new lolita pieces and some lovely art.  I also feel refreshed with the exception that as an introvert I am a bit peopled out.  I am enjoying some reading time and alone time this week.  I am also taking my time with unpacking and putting things away, but I had run myself rather ragged.  Here are some of the things that made me smile this week.

    Hello internet!  I'm back!  I had so much fun in Huston and at Anime Matsuri.  It was really fun and exciting.  I brought home some lovely things, got to taste some great food, and make some fun memories.  I am happy to be home though.  I spent my time today relaxing and cleaning and unpacking.  And of course playing with my nephew and the pets.  How have you been?

 Till later,
 Lilian
