Recent Purchases
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 @ 3:23 AM

I thought it would be appropriate to do a bit of a wardrobe post, but as I mentioned in my previous entry, my style is changing. I don't have many Classic or Gothic pieces in my lolita wardrobe. Actually, I don't have much of anything as of now. I got rid of the pieces that were too sweet for me and only kept a couple of dresses (and I mean a couple).

So instead of doing a wardrobe post, I decided to instead make a post about recent purchases. These were made this year or the end of last year. It's not much, but it's a start. In the future, I'll do a proper wardrobe post to show my dresses and other accessories as well. But for now, this will do!

The first purchase I would like to talk about is this absolutely gorgeous necklace from PUTUMAYO. I really like PUTUMAYO especially the little shop front they have in Harajuku (the actual shop not the ones that you find in malls here). It's so lovely like a doll house inside. I love the atmosphere of that shop so I love going there. Anyway, back the necklace, it's the pink version of their violin necklace. I love that you can see through it and inside the violin are little lace flowers and music notes.

I think PUTUMAYO accessories are some of my favorite accessories for lolita. They have a lot of very cute themes with animals, roses, instruments, etc. ^^

This is the next purchase I want to talk about. It is also from PUTUMAYO. I had to have this bag when I first saw it. I saw it a couple of months before Christmas at the shop in Marui One, but at the time I had already made some large purchases so I didn't have much extra spending money. But once Christmas hit, this was one of the first things I looked for again.

Everything about this bag screams me. It's pink. It sparkles. There are cats, crowns and butterflies printed on it. Basically it has most of the things I love. I love anything that sparkles. Let's just say I'm attracted to shiny objects, haha! All in all, this bag is cute, sturdy and very big. It's perfect!

The final purchase I will talk about is a Baby, the Stars Shine Bright lucky bag I got around Christmas time.  I decided to head the the Baby store while I was at Marui One, and the shop girls were just packing up and putting these lucky bags out on display. They were very cheap, only 8000yen! That's a steal for what you get inside.

I was extremely happy to get all black items. I got a pair of black bloomers, a black petticoat, and some socks. I really needed a black petticoat as the only one I have is white. As for the bloomers, it was nice to get a dark pair as I only had a pink pair at the time. And I'm always happy to get cute socks. I think I have more socks than anything else. xD

These are the purchases I made in the past few months. Like I said, it isn't much, but I'm very happy with what I got. I'm hoping to get a new dress by the end of next month. I know exactly the dress I want, and it will be my first Classic piece as well.

That's all for now!

Introduction to Rose Stained Glass

I've decided to make this blog separate from my BJD blog (which you can find a link to in the sidebar).

Basically this blog will be about everything in my life that isn't ball-jointed doll related. Although lolita fashion will most likely be the focal point of the blog. Here I will post about lolita fashion, my favorite brands/pieces/etc., random lolita related ramblings as well as music and fun things I do.

Now, I want to say a few things about me. My name is Ali (but I go by Miku online and among certain groups of friends off the internet). I'm 24 years old, and I'm currently living and working in Chiba, Japan. I enjoy my life and my job here and plan to stay for a long while.

I love lolita fashion if that wasn't obvious enough. My favorite brands are Juliette et Justine and Moi Meme Moitie (and Angelic Pretty since they were the first brand I fell in love with, although my style has changed since I started). A few months ago, I probably would have said that my favorite style of lolita is Sweet, but recently I've made a turn towards Classic. Most of my future pieces will most likely lean towards the Classic and/or Gothic side. As I get older, I notice my tastes are shifting towards more mature looks and styles within the fashion.

Some of my other interests include visual kei. I've been part of the visual kei fanbase for a long, long while (for a good 8-9 years), and I still enjoy the music now. I also enjoy other Japanese rock/indie bands and a bit of J-pop here and there. ^_^

If you follow my BJD blog, you'll know that I love asian ball-jointed dolls and have quite a nice sized collection (and it's still growing). I'm also very interested in photography. I'm no professional but it is a big hobby of mine.

I think that's all I'll write for now. Please feel free to use the link in my sidebar to link back to my blog if you'd like~

I live in a place where roses get eaten by lions and potatoes attacking humankind. I'm a weirdo and I don't believe in killing for justice, well most of the time. Put a short intro here.
