January 18th, 2016 Meet Up

Hello lovelies! Yesterday there was a meet up planned at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn. They had free admission and parking in celebration of Martin Luther King Day. There were about 20 people there I believe? Unfortunately we were late due to bad roads and unforeseen circumstances and never managed to find the large group! Though we did run into two other lolitas, we mostly stayed on our own but still had fun.

My friend Virginia came along with me. She is new to lolita and this was her first time wearing it out. Unfortunately for her we had more people come up to us with questions and wanting photos than I've ever had. We got so many compliments and people who genuinely polite and interested. Luckily, even the people who were not as polite were not out right malicious to us. There is a certain amount of leeway that needs to be provided while wearing alternative fashions because, no matter how silly it seems to us, people are going to want to know why you're dressed that way.

We explored the museum and saw some really great exhibits. I hadn't been to this museum since I was a small child and I didn't remember anything (except the Weiner-Mobile) so it was like going to a brand new place! Here are a few of my favorite pieces:

The Women's Suffrage Display

Antique Lamps & Wood Stoves

This plane made me smile!

JFK's car

Showing the anatomy of the Model T

When we were finished at the museum we drove to Midland to go to our favorite sushi place. They offer great vegan options and my favorites kind of tempura. Here is what I ate.

Miso Soup  (Fish free!)

Sweet Potato Tempura

Lastly, and what you probably wanted to see in the first place, are some pictures of my friend & I. I will include outfit breakdowns at the very end. Thank you for reading and have a beautiful week. <3
Greenfield Village was closed but made for a cute photo!

2016 Buying Goals & An Update

Hello lovelies! I wanted to give everyone still reading an update on my life and on the plans for this blog. Unfortunately this past year I did not have many opportunities to wear lolita and have had some computer issues. Because of those reasons, this blog was pretty quiet throughout 2015. However I have great news for the new year. I have multiple purchases that have come in recently, a meetup coming up, and several other plans for future posts. I also now am borrowing a computer so I can update as need be. My goal is to update this blog at least once a month throughout this year and to share more of what is happening in my jfashion life. :) So I hope you'll all look forward to that.

Now, on to the main point of this post. Last year I made a post about what my buying goals were for the year. It really helped me stay focused and make less impulse buys. I bought several of the items on that list. Unfortunately several of those items didn't fit me properly and either have been sold or will be in the future. The ones I was able to keep are amazing though. You will be seeing posts on several of them throughout the coming months.

So here is what I'd like to get this year. Some of it is continued on from last year because I was unable to obtain them this year. On top of these items I am intending to make a taobao order this year (for the first time yay!) and will be getting several dresses hopefully that I've had my eye on. I will definitely be letting you all know when that happens and will review my shopping service and purchases. On to the pictures!
