That day, 25.10.2020

  The last lolita outfits I posted were from July... and you may wonder, why? Yes, I am mostly at home all the time, no lolita events whatsoever, but I can still wear pretty frilly dresses at home just for fun, right? Well... the truth is, I can't fit them anymore! :o Because I am pregnant (again) and my belly can't fit into the waist-defined dresses and skirts (those are like 95% of my wardrobe). And any petticoat/bloomers are very uncomfortable for me now, anyway. (But I miss wearing lolita so much, trust me...)
  I decided to do a little photoshoot, to showcase new products I made. Unfortunately the weather forecast was wrong, and it was raining. So I decided to take just some photos at home.
  It was a typical day when I try make like 100 different things at once. Take product photos, edit photos on PC, put new items on eshop, take care of my toddler, sew new chokers, answer messages, make food, clean the house... all that in different order again and over again. 
  I used to be more organized, but when a 1 year old toddler is running everywhere around, it's a whole new challenge. Just look at the mess at my table! That's my unfinished crafting, which I can't put anywhere else, because my toddler would snatch it immediately, run away with it, and stuff it under the freezer or something. Parenting is such a joy! :D


  Poslední mé lolita outfity byly z července... a možná se divíte, proč? Ano, jsem teď převážně doma, lolita srazy se nekonají, ale i tak si můžu nosit pěkné krajkové šaty jen doma pro radost, ne? No... pravda je taková, že už se do nich nevejdu! Protože jsem (opět) těhotná a většina mých šatů a sukní (asi tak 95%) má úzký pas, takže se mi tam nevejde bříško. A stejně jakákoliv spodnička/bloomerky by mi teď byly velmi nepohodlné. (Ale věřte mi, lolita móda mi moc chybí...)
 ♦ Rozhodla jsem se pro malý photoshoot, s novými výrobky. Jenže! Předpověď počasí lhala a pršelo. Takže nakonec zase jen fotky doma u bílé stěny.
 Byl to takový typický den, kdy se snažím stihnout 100 různých věcí naráz. Nafotit produkty, upravit fotky na počítači, dát nové zboží na eshop, postarat se o batole, šít nové chokery, odpovídat na zprávy, uvařit, uklidit... a to všechno v různém pořadí pořád dokola.
 Bývala jsem více organizovaná, ale když se všude motá roční mrně, je to zcela nová výzva. No jen se podívejte, jaký mám chaos na stole! To je moje rozdělané šití, které si nemůžu nikam jinam odložit, protože by mi to mrňousek sebral, utekl by s tím pryč, a asi by to pak skončilo narvané pod mrazákem nebo tak něco. No není rodičovství úžasné období? :D

# 9 - 10 things you will never do in lolita

There are definitely ocassions and places not suitable for wearing lolita fashion. BUT, I believe that "everybody can be kawaii" and even when you cannot wear your favourite lolita style, you can always look cute & stylish.

Photo from magazine "Alice Deco a la Mode vol. 2"

1 / I wouldn't sleep in a lolita dress.
But I can wear cute frilly & lacy pajamas!

2 / I wouldn't swim in a lolita dress.
But I can wear some cute swimsuit! Bonus points for a lolita straw hat kombo :-)

3 / I wouldn't go to funeral in OTT lolita outfit.
But it's perfectly ok to wear a tuned-down kuro lolita (all black) look.

4 / I wouldn't wear lolita fashion to a job which requires an uniform.
But I can still wear cute hairstyle / cute accessories / cute nails. 
(All of it, or just some of it, depending on the job, of course.)
I even heard about a lolita girl, who works as a construction worker (she drives a crane I think), and she wears all pink overall for work! :D)

5 / I wouldn't ride a bike in lolita.
I would wear some nice ouji / kodona outfit instead! Yay for pants! :D 

6 / I wouldn't wear lolita fashion (or any beautiful outfit) for an exploration of underground secret corridors. (Where you must go throu narrow spaces and you will probably get dirty.)
But I can put together some cool postapo outfit made of old clothes! :D

7 / I wouldn't wear lolita in bed while I am ill. I mean the situation, where you are in pain and don't care about your messy hair, don't care about makeup, and don't care about any kind of pretty accessories at all.
But I can still watch lolita and kawaii videos on Youtube, while laying ill in bed. 

8 / I wouldn't wear lolita in extremely hot summer.
I can wear lolita in summer, but only to certain celsius degree. When it gets really really hot, I prefer wearing nice light summer dresses (they can still be very cute, with a nice print or pretty lace!). Looking cute with less layers!

9 / I wouldn't wear lolita for sports that need special dresscode and equipment.
Like rock climbing, skiing, etc... however I don't do this at all, I don't enjoy sports in general.
But it's interesting, that some lolitas would still do sport activities in full coord! Check the series "Action Lolita" on FluffyKawaiiJo's youtube channel. It's fun to watch, although I would never do this wearing lolita XD

10 / I wouldn't run (especially not in rocking horse shoes!).
I always say this to myself, I am an elegant lady, right?
...and then I want to catch the bus. And I run. In rocking horse shoes. On bad quality wavy holey sidewalk. And I trip and I fall hard on face on the concrete... while everyone in the bus is watching! Most embarassing behavior. 
But the bus driver was really nice, he waited. And the people in the bus were like: "Are you alright? Is everything ok?" And I am smiling like "I am fine!" feeling stupid with my bloody knees  "I am fine, don't worry!" XD
I always say to myself I will never never ever run for a bus again... and then I do (if I really need to catch it). 
So I am afraid am not a perfect lolita.

Hello, Hello! (March + April 2020)

Don't worry, I am still alive and everything here is ok.

Just with the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, I got quite depressed. So I stopped doing many things (including writing a blog), instead I spend almost all my free time playing The Sims and sewing face masks.

If you are interested what I did last two months, read more under the cut :-)

#7 10 people who inspire your lolita style

1 / Yumi Fujiwara. She is the designer of japanese fashion brand Innocent World. For me, she is the most inspirational role model ever. Everything about her is just "wow, I wish I could be like that, too". Her delicate fashion style. Her hard work. Her very elegant behaviour. How she decorates her work place. How she loves to travel through old european towns. She is just magical.
Interview with her:

Confirmation (Oct 2019)

I made this dress especially for my confirmation ceremony.
I was enjoying that day so much I even forgot to take an outfit photo! (Where I stand alone.)

When a little child is christened, it cannot really believe in God. So later, when he/she becomes an adult (usually around 18 years), there is second, confirmation, ceremony. I didn't believe much in God when I was 18 (at least not in Church), but some paths of my life led me back to the faith in my 30s, so I had my confirmation later in 2019.

If you ask which patron did I pick, it is archangel Michael. And my choice of a quote from the Holy Bible:
"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them." 1 John 4,16
