Mon manège à moi

It's been months I wanted to have a photoshoot on a carrousel (let me live my life full of lolita clichés !).  Since I impulsively bought Cyrstal Dream Carnival in July, I thought it was indeed the perfect dress to finally do it~ Luckily, Marie was also pleased by the idea and agreed to help me getting this little dream of mine realized ♡

I took the opportunity of my still-holiday time and this photoshoot to die my hair purple, thinking that would be nice to immortalize my summer-hair before I go back to blonde (yay. blonde usually fits better for jobs and internships' applications, haha).

I've have talked already enough, please, enjoy the pictures ! The bonus pictures will come in few days~ I first thought I would add them here but well, I think Marie really deserves at least two posts for all the hard work she put in those photographs ♡ Also, don't forget to also check Marie's post about the photoshoot, we didn't post all the same pictures ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)

Cela faisait des mois que j'avais envie de faire un photoshoot sur un carrousel (ou plutôt des années — mais cette envie m'est réapparue récemment) et après mon achat impulsif de la Crystal Dream Carnival d'Angelic Pretty, je me suis dit que c'était justement l'occasion rêvée. Evidemment, toute cette séance photo n'aurait pas pu être réalisée sans l'aide de Marie (et d'Alienor, mais nous y reviendront dans les bonus) ♡

Comme certains ont pu le remarquer, j'ai profité de tout l'été pour me colorer les cheveux (rose, violet, …). Je suis plutôt contente d'avoir réussie à immortaliser ce moment avant de reprendre ma vie habituelle de jeune fille blonde (ce qui est plus pratique — nous allons l'avouer — pour chercher des stages ou des petits boulots). 

Mais assez parler ! J'espère que vous apprécierez les photos~ Je vous en réserve d'ailleurs encore quelques unes (carrément plus drôle) pour un prochain post bonus. N'oubliez pas également de passer sur l'article de Marie, nous n'avons pas posté exactement les mêmes photos ☆~(ゝ。∂)

See you soon for the bonus pictures ♡ They are way more fun than those one, I swear ☆~(ゝ。∂)

From London to Paris

Kyra and Dom went to Paris in order to celebrate Kyra's birthday, how great is that ? And what a romantic and sweet gift ♡ I haven't seen her since April so it was a good opportunity to meet her and enjoy the day in Paris. I was so hungry I totally forgot to take decent pictures in Ladurée, what a shame ! Our table was filled with sweet and delicious treats~~ After the brunch/tea time we went to Jardin des Tuileries and Louvre in order to take some pictures and hang around in one of the most beautiful place of Paris.

Two opposite understanding of "coordination' pictures !"

Oh my fluffy little thing ♡
I am wearing : Dress, bag, headbow : Angelic Pretty — Necklace : Q-pot
Blouse, socks, shoes : Btssb — Glasses : H&M

I really really wanted to wear my Angelic Pretty Pretty Girl pink coat : I've waited for so long to finally find it at a decent price ! But it seems it can't get enough cold to wear it... (Am I really saying that right now ? That is not cold enough ?...). Anyway, I still decided to wear to coordination I wanted to wear with that coat : sweet with a twist of classy style
~ I really can't stop wearing high heels with lolita : Btssb shoes are perfect for this ! The transparent socks and the vanity bag really helps in getting a madame style, don't you think ? And speaking of classy style...

Dom and Kyra are just so cute. Always. What a lovely couple ! Can I ship them ?

Kyra was just as beautiful and elegant as usual ! I love red/bordeaux colours on her and she is always wearing gold accents — which I do adore. Her coordination reminded me how much I needed those Vivienne Westwood x Melissa shoes : they are so delicated and perfect for lolita, in should buy them in nude and pink~

It was raining all week so we were a bit afraid of what would be happening but we were lucky enough to have a hot and sunny weather. So sunny that it seemed like all Paris was outside, sunbathing in Jardin des Tuileries~ All those people in the pictures' background ! Though the hotness and the crowd we enjoyed the day talking in Louvre and fantasizing about our future Lolita's School of Frilled Youngsters, some kind of mutant-lolita school established in Louvre musuem (doesn't it sound great ?). Lolita economy and prints classes, your inner sub-lolita style picked by the Sorting Hat and lolita ball at the end of the year. Doesn't it sound great ? My powers is being bald and in a wheelchair (basically : cosplaying Professor X), haha~ But no, really, if I had to choose I would go for telepathy or weather manipulation like Storm.

Welcome to the Lolita's School of Frilled Youngsters ! 
Obligatory tourist pictures

Didn't seem to but it was pretty windy sometimes. (need to learn about my weather manipulation powers)

Classy and lovely photographs are still my favourites, I couldn't help but put some of them in my article. I should print them and hang them around in my room, they make me feel so happy and joyful ! At the end of the afternoon, we discussed about lolita events and such (lolita events talks are important talks.) just before letting Kyra and Dom' go in order to spend another romantic evening in Paris ♡

See you soon my dear readers, so many posts are coming ! Can't wait to write everything down~

Cosmic in Paris

I've dreamt about it, I've fantasized about it, and now it's all mine : cosmic print is finally home !! I've known I wanted it since the first time I saw it on the KERA's scans and it was the first time I used a shopping service for lolita (was a great and thrilling experience though !). As soon as I received it, we went with Marie taking pictures in Paris : the magical girl and sailor feeling of this dress is inevitable, all we wanted was to do a photoshoot with Paris' bridges behind us. 

I always write a lot in my posts, so this time I will learn from my beloved one and just post pictures. Because there is nothing to say except I love her ♡ (and Cosmic serie.)

Marie is wearing : Blouse : Vintage — Skirt and hairbow : Angelic Pretty
Socks : offbrand — Shoes : Antaina — Rings : offbrand and Vivienne Westwood

I am wearing : Dress, bag, shoes and scrunchy : Angelic Pretty
Socks : Offbrand — Moon and stars hairclip : Chocomint

Hope you enjoyed those pictures, you can see more in Marie's blog post ´・ᴗ・`♡ 

I am so happy we finally were able to do this photoshoot, we've been planning it for a long time now ! And I feel we are both very happy about our new items~ I can't wait to get more matching dresses and skirts : surprisingly there are way more prints and series we both want than you could expect ☆~(ゝ。∂)

I'm so curious ! Do you love Cosmic print ? Did you manage to get it ? I've been struggling (well. my shopping service has been struggling) for getting Cosmic serie : lavender OP really wasn't my first choice but everything went off so fast ! I'm just a bit disappointed that two days after cosmic release Angelic Pretty announced a made-to-orde re-release... I wish I had enough money to order a second cosmic dress, one in my first choices~ I wish I could get the Sailor JSK or the OP in white or navy... So many possibilities and so little money... (╥_╥) But anyway, I am still very happy I was able to buy one in first place ! And let's not forget that...
