But I failed. Well, not completely, as I recently got two items I had been searching for for a long time.
A friend from France was selling her very gorgeous velvet rose headband from Moitie, so I got it ! I like the headbands a lot, since you don't have to bother tying the laces under your chin or under your hair, and that you can also change the headband if needed. (I often have to, as the headbands Moitie uses are quite small for my head, and end up giving too much pressure behind my ears, and hurt after some hours.) The tulle is so soft <3 Sadly though, with this Xth headdress box to put in my drawer closet, I have no room anymore ! I had to move boxes around to fit it.... Ahahah.
Then an auction popped up with the EGA arm covers, for almost half the original price ! I quickly asked a SS to grab them for me, and I won the auction. They are absolutely gorgeous, but as I anticipated, my big arms will not fit in it. Well, they could, because the lacing up is "open" (you can untie it and open it as large as needed) but that often breaks the look of it. I will need to experiment with it and see if I can wear them more open, but if I don't like the result, I will sell them again, even if it breaks my heart....
I've been thinking, even though I keep shopping endlessly to forget how bored I am, that I should really clean my closet. I mean by that, checking everything, and really considering selling part of my wardrobe and accessories. As I previously talked about, I gained a very big amount of weight in the past year, and I doubt I will loose it fast enough to justify keeping all of these dresses in here, that I can't even think of trying on anymore. I also have some offbrand rings, headflowers, etc, that I just don't use or wear at all, so maybe I'll give them to girls who want them in my comm, or just give them to a charity shop/throw them away. I have a few items I think of selling, because I logically can tell I won't wear it because of my weight or because it was an impulse buy, but I really have an emotionnal attachement to my items, as I feel they are my identity. I don't have much except for my EGL collection of things that I relate to anymore, so giving pieces of it away really scares me. Anyways....
After all this babbling, I also got something else, just today ! When I can afford a piece of furniture to place all my decorative collection items (Moitie teddy bear, a rose I got at a Moi dix mois show thrown by Mana, my concert tickets, my Madoushos, etc...), I'll be glad I have all this stuff to put in it but for now it will go on my Mana altar (top of my desk...ahaha).
I had been searching for it for a long time, but I always saw it at around 40$ in auctions without shipping or SS fee, so of course that's a crazy price to pay for a glass I will not use. But Tokyo Alice just recently updated new items and that was one of them, so I quickly sent a mail order for it ! It's my favorite one as well. There is another tall glass with the Holy Stained Glass print over it, but it's plain transparent glass. I really like the frosty blue effect on this one, so I'm glad I got it ! It will go with my Mana Mâtin cup <3
Lastly, this week with Lolita Blog Carnival our theme will be to create a coordinate with a dress in another style than its original lolita sub-style ! I've chosen a dress that might be harder to coordinate than I thought... I hope you'll like it !
