Easter + Graduation + Ironman 3

For Easter this year, I wore a simple off brand coordinate to church. I was really happy to be able to put together such a simple outfit from so many off brand finds I've accumulated over time. I'm really thinking about organizing a post where I talk about creating lolita on a budget.

Shirt: JCPenney
Belt: Rue21
Skirt: Unknown etsy (bought secondhand)
Tights: Wal-mart
Shoes: Shoe Carnival
I've also graduated recently with my degree in computer science finally. I haven't actively started looking for jobs yet. I can't drive yet so that's kind of putting a damper on the search. My main goals for the summer are going to be learning how to drive within the next month or so then searching for a post-graduation job.

I didn't actually walk at the big ceremony at my university because I would have found it to be just too impersonal sitting there with so many people I didn't know. I did, however, attend the honors pre-graduation ceremony which my honors program hosted. It's a very small program which takes only 50 people per year, so I felt a lot of nostalgia and warmth attending the ceremony. 

Blouse, necklace: Forever 21
Dress: Bodyline l481
Bag: Innocent World
Shoes: Rackroom Shoes
Finally, just for fun, I'll include an outfit picture of me and my fiance before we went to see Ironman 3, a movie I did really enjoy. It was a very simple outfit, but I thought that it suited me. I liked adding the touch of my Union Jack headphones.

Video Game Playing Tumblr + Dr Who Conversion

I want to start off the post by mentioning that I have a new tumblr, Lasaia Plays Vidya. I've really wanted to express some of my nerdier interests including my escapes in World of Warcraft without bothering the followers of my main blog, Beyond Kawaii. Follow me there for random WoW, Fire Emblem: Awakening, just general nerdy fun goodness.

I've also become interested in Dr. Who lately after much time spent talking with my fiance about the topic. I've also been sorely tempted to try a Dr. Who inspired coordinate based off of the below polyvore.

I took the first step of making the above outfit happen by ordering the jsk from Bodyline. Hopefully I'll be able to get the item soon and writing a review. The only thing tempering my enthusiasm about the whole idea is having seem some lolitas online get upset about fandom paired lolita. While I don't look forward to drawing possible internet ire, I just can't help but to want to combine other aspects of my personality into a hobby that, to me at least, doesn't seem to exclude the combinations.
