Kaoru the Bookworm

I decided to take some new pictures of Kaoru today. It has been so long since I did anything with my dolls so I thought it was time. I should take some pictures of Yuki as well, but that will have to wait. His wig needs washing and combing first.

Another spring walk~

The weather has been so nice this last week that I have been going out every day even if I didn't really have any reason to. It's nice and warm and all the flowers are beginning to bloom~
This is definitely my absolute favorite time of the year!

Today I went for another walk with Emma around Djurgården.

Emma looks so grumpy in the bright sunlight! XD

This is all you get to see of my outfit today. I was too lazy to get any other pictures taken. The theme of the day was Black/White/Red with roses. Simple and pretty.

Soon I'm going to have a lovely dinner with my favorite dish~ It's going to be so tasty!

Picnic with Panda~

What the title says~ Panda and I went out yesterday and had a nice picnic!

Tea and Strawberry Pie! Nom nom!

Long hair is long! And red! I dyed it right before going out since Panda was taking soooo long to get ready! :P

My outfit!
Dress: Victorian Maiden
Bolero: Alice and the Pirates
Socks: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Necklace (and Bag that's not in the picture): Innocent World
Shoes: Demonia
Everything else: Offbrand

Of childhood sweethearts and shoes!

Today I went to meet someone I hadn't seen in years.

A while ago Christofer, my childhood friend/sweetheart (I suppose), found me on Facebook (I suppose the god forsaken site can be good for something at least) and we got to talking. We hadn't seen eachother since... the prom in 9th grade? I think. Either way we decided to meet and catch up after all these years. So today we went to a nice café called Sturekatten and talked away an hour or two. It was really quite nice.

The interior of that café is to die for, by the way. All gorgeous antique furniture~

My outfit of the day:
Skirt: Alice and the Pirates
Socks: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Shoes: Demonia (I got them in the mail today and by the Maker, they're gorgeous!)
Everything else: Offbrand

Shiny new shoes! I looove them! They were most definitely worth the long wait.

20 000 Pageviews!

I can't believe it! 20k is probably not a lot compared to some other blogs but to me it's a HUGE number! Who are all you people?

*is completely taken by surprise*

Uh... thanks for reading everyone! Or just clicking... or looking at pictures, or whatever it is you do. Thank you!

Shoe shopping!

I went into town with Ting today. We had a very nommy lunch at Pizza Hut and then went looking for shoes for him. In the end I found shoes for myself as well so it was certainly a win-win situation! XD

After the shopping was done (Aside from the shoes Ting bought a t-shirt and some socks and I bought lacy fingerless gloves.) we went to Old Town and sat down at a café for a while.

Ting :3

My hair didn't really want to cooperate with me today but meeeh, I couldn't be arsed to care really.

The weather was absolutely lovely the entire day!

Dress, Bolero: Innocent World
Parasol: Alice and the Pirates
Everything else: Offbrand

This is the first picture I have of myself in this dress even though I bought it last fall, in late September I think. As you might remember I was thinking of selling it for a while since I never used it. In the months I've had it I have only used it four times, I think. The rest of the time it has been neatly folded in a box at the top of my wardrobe, hidden away from the world. Definitely not worth it considering how much I paid for it. However, in the end I chickened out of selling it. It holds immense sentimental value and I just couldn't bear to part with it.

Now, though, I am once again thinking of selling it. Bringing it to the Lolita Flee Market on May 1st would be an easy thing and then perhaps I could get at least some of the money back. (God knows I need the cash!) But... I still can't seem to make up my mind. It's a gorgeous dress but if I can't bear to wear it, what's the point of keeping it? Not to mention if I keep it is most likely because I still cling to the hope that things will return to the way they were... Something that is very unlikely to happen. Just thinking that it might seems very silly and romantic, and utterly cliché. I'm probably a fool for even considering it - a very naive fool.

So perhaps it would be best if I just sold it. Heh... Yeah, I probably will at that. What is the point of keeping it?
The dress is going back on the hanger until the Lolita Fleemarket and then I'll see if anyone there will be interested in it.

Uh... sorry about that. Like the rant I wrote a few days ago, this is something that has been on my mind for a long time now and I just needed to get it out. I hope you understand.

Now, back to the photos from today.

I'm always serious! I swear!

My shiny new shoes!

I really needed new white shoes and these just seemed so perfect! Simple and elegant and gorgeous!
