I've been really sick for the past week. Cough, stuffy nose, aching body, fatigue, it all came down on me at once. Even though I had to go to work still, I could rest well and this week-end my body has been showing progress and I might get out of this sickness this week. Meanwhile, I've been taking care of myself and resting a lot ~
Since last time I received my Moitie items I had been waiting for. These have been dream items for a long time, so I'm glad I could get them finally.
I received my last dress from Russia ! I love buying from the international community and getting items from so many different countries. I have dresses that traveled many countries through even ! I also liked the box in which the dress was sent. A very pretty blue color with cool postal service design on it.
The seller was very nice. She even added a small surprise with my dress ! She sent these chocolate from a chocolate museum. I enjoyed them ! I really like the very small things sellers sometimes send along with their item, even if it's only a small thank you note ! I try to send some as well when I can.
And this is the magnificent piece. You'll have to excuse the picture, as my bed is dark blue, my room not well lit, and the dress entirely black.... Doesn't help in trying to take a nice photograph. The dress is just amazing. The fabric is a very very light chiffon (the dress itself barely weights anything !) The sleeves are transparent, and the elbow lenght makes it looks like a darkness princess gown. I thought, since I am a plus size lolita, that the lacing at the front would maybe look wonky because of the shirring + lacing, but the sides of the lacing front have boning in them, to keep it straight ! Moitie just knows how to make everything absolutely holy-level perfect.
I also got my Candelabra bag ! If I'm not mistaken I got it from Yahho!Auctions at a good price. However, the price kind of reflected its condition.... The metal part at the top has clear worn feeling and the fabric, which kind of feels like suede.. ? Has places where it's less soft than other parts. I think it adds charm to the color of the bag, but it's clearly not a "as new" item. In this picture you can see the cross charm as well, but it didn't come with it (it does come with it originally, but my item didn't have it). I'm just lucky to have another bag from Moitie (fake fur and rose bag) that has the same charm, so I can just change it from bag to bag when I want to wear one or the other. It also has a lot of room and is very stiff so it stands well on itself. There are also 3 pockets inside of it, so it's very practical. Moitie never stops impressing me. <3
And then, since I was sick, in some dark mood and needed to change my mind, I decided to try and work on the sketch/drawing I had started some weeks ago. I wanted to make it for Mana's birthday, but I'm not sure I won't finish it in time. I hope it turns out ok when it is colored and finished. Maybe some of you will understand the meaning if I tell you the two butterflies are a blue Morpho Melenaus, and a red Scarlet Mormon...... O_~ The flowers have been inspired by songs like Lilac of Damnation. I will probably end up sending it to Mana/showing it to him somehow, but it would have been nice to send him for his birthday. Anyways, I'll show progress when I do get more done !
So I'll continue working hard to get out of this abyss of the last days, and give news soon. I hope you are all feeling well.
