Lolita Blog Carnival: My Lolita Inspiration

The Lolita Blog Carnival topic of the week was "Your Lolita Inspiration." I took the opportunity to just plain fan girl over some of my favorite fashion inspirations, so I hope you enjoy!

Pixie Late

Pixie Late just embodies elegance to me in her overall style while also striking me with her sweeter looking outfits. I feel like she exudes sweet sophistication in all of her outfits, something I would one day love to approach.

Princess Peachie
The first thing I ever saw from Princess Peachie was actually her sweet lolita transformation video.

From this video onward, I've really felt inspired at the idea that maybe plain little old me could look as fabulous as she does in this video. I also just love her sweet lolita and fairy kei fashion sense in general, and she makes me want to go more over the top and pastel. 


Before I started following pastelbat and seeing all of her amazing photos, I just thought creepy cute style just looked kinda of like sweet lolita with eyeball bows and skeleton tights slapped on. She's really opened my mind on what creepy cute fashion can look like and how it can take many different forms. Though I haven't gotten much creepy cute in my wardrobe yet, I'm waiting for my pastel bone hair clips from Kittywood to come in, and I'm excited for the pre-order to close for Alice Doll's Twinkle Candy Bones so I can get my shirt. ~<3


Even though I've never seen her directly do lolita fashion, I find a lot of ideas for my personal style through Annika on her blog The Pineneedle Collective. Her specialization in vintage fashion is really fun, and so many of the outfits she does are pastel cool and girly.

Thank you for reading this blog post! Be sure to check out the other participants in the Lolita Blog Carnival.

Recent Outfits + Gothic Lolita Wigs Customer Showcase

I have just a few outfits to share today along with my feature on the Gothic Lolita Wigs customer showcase today. ~<3

OP: Angelic Pretty Dreaming of Macaron
Wig: Gothig Lolita Wigs
Tights: Holley Tea Time
Bag: Bodyline
Shoes: Bodyline
Accessories: Claire's, Bowkuma, Forever 21
I wore this outfit to class one day recently. I like wearing a more over the top coordinate like this on campus more than most places since I didn't get weird stares from people. It's a college campus, so I think people just assume that they'll see slightly not ordinary things.

Top: Rue 21
Hoodie: Walmart
Skirt: Bodyline
Shoes: Claire's
Accessories: Rue 21
This was just a simple outfit for visiting the museum one afternoon after class. I liked how the colors matched the fall weather. 

And above is my Gothic Lolita Wigs customer showcase! They've already sent me my $10 coupon. ^_^ The only thing I'm upset about it that they listed the shirt as offbrand when I told them it was Tasty Peach Studios. Oh well.
