Classic Outfit…and an annoucement!

Hello dear readers~
Today I’ll show you an outfit, and tell you something exciting!
This time I wanted to make a really classical outfit. A high-collar onepiece is typical classic lolita. Oxford shoes and argyle print socks keep to the traditional, prim effect. The print of the dress includes little red flowers, and I picked these up by adding bordeaux to the rest of the coodinate. 
Onepiece: Handmade
Ribbon Brooch: Vintage
Socks: Metamorphose
Everything else: Offbrand
Now for my announcement…..
This summer, I am moving to Tokyo!

This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time, and finally the timing is right. I’m feeling rather sad to be parting from my friends and family here in England, but I’m looking forward to joining my friends there and meeting up with new people. I will stay about one year, and see how I do.
 I will be studying Japanese for the first few months, and I’ll look for a job so I can save up and do some travelling. I want to visit Hokkaido, Okinawa, Hiroshima, Osaka, Kyoto…. lots of places! I love Japan, and I’d like to see as much of it as I can. 
I can’t wait to start my Japanese course! I started to study Japanese by myself when I was 16 or so, and I had evening classes at SOAS for a couple of terms while I was at university. I’ve been taking evening classes once a week since September at a college here in Sussex, but it is very difficult to make much progress studying that way. In Japan I’ll have lessons Monday to Friday, so with hard work and effort on my part I hope I’ll improve my level quickly. 
I’m also looking forward to going to lolita events and seeing my favourite bands. And those two most important activities- shopping and eating. It’s going to be tough on my wallet, being surrounded by wonderful shops and beautiful clothes! 
 Of course, I’ll keep blogging while I’m there. Thank you all for your lovely comments over this past year or so. I’m really enjoying getting to know you through this blog, and I hope you’ll continue to follow me in the future. This is a very exciting step for me, and I hope this blog will become more exciting too!
See you next time,

  1. Congrats ^^I wish you to find some success in your Japan trip, what kind of job are you looking for ?(You've made this dresse yourself ? The collar is really well made, the dress looks very nice !)

  2. Wow!! What an exciting news!! By the way, I love your outfit, just as beautiful as always.I wish all the best in Japan, and when I go back to Japan from time to time I wish I can see you in Tokyo.Also, I'm planning to buy few flats/apartments in Tokyo this year so if you are having some problem of renting a place or something. PM me, I will lend it to you for a friendship price.All the best!

  3. Thank you for your lovely comment! I would love to work for a Lolita brand, as a designer or as shop staff. However my Japanese is limited, so I will have to study for some time before I can think of applying for that sort of job. However I enjoy modelling (what little experience I have had of it!) and it doesn't require a high level of Japanese, so I may try that 🙂

  4. Gorgeous coord! I especially love the style~And wow! I hope everything works out for you! Will you still be able to update your blog so we can see how everything goes for you and see more gorgeous coords? :3~ Kieli ~

  5. Your outfit looks pretty as always and it suits you amazingly well! Usually I'm not such a big fan of busy prints as in the fabric of your onepiece(which is wonderfully sewed, by the way!), but as you used mostly simple pieces to go with it it looks great.Also, many congratulations on having the opportunity to study in Japan, I hope everything will work out for you! Hopefully you'll also be able to find a job that you like, I wish you all the best for it!

  9. I love your outfit :DI'm so happy for you about moving to Japan!!! I'm looking forward for the posts you'll write about it!Reading your post I feel guilty about my Japanese, I'm starting to forget it as I don't revise as I should ^^'

  10. Thank you very much for your lovely comment! Yes, I tried to balance the print, it's easy to make it overdone though. I feel very lucky to be able to do this, I'll try to make the very best of my experience. I think it might be tricky to get a job with the language problem, but I'll keep perservering 🙂 Thanks for your kind good luck wishes!

  11. Thank you! I have most things sorted out, so I should be ok. Only problem is how to send all my clothes, and how to squeeze them into my apartment when they get there!

  12. Thank you! Oh, it's hard to get into the mood to revise sometimes. But when you pick up your studies, I think everything will return quickly 🙂
