Some Amazing Finds ( Sock Hunting Part 2 )

I only managed to find one pair of socks this time, but I was amazed at what else I found!

Here are the socks that I bought at Target, I heard about them from a post on EGL and had to get them. <3

But before I went to Target, I went to Claires at the mall and was pretty surprised to see these!

Not only a pair of wrist cuffs ( which I found the most surprising ) but a mini top hat as well! There was also a white pair of wrist cuffs but I decided to get the black pair since the white had a flower thing I didn't like. I always knew that Claires was Lolita friendly but this is amazing! Thoughts?


Tips on Looking Like a Doll

There are a lot of different looks you can go for while wearing Lolita. You could wish to look like a princess, a Victorian, or of course - a doll. Here are some tips that should help you achieve the look of a cute little doll!

 Beauty tips
  • Use fake eyelashes and eyeliner, if you can then also use circle lenses, try to make your eyes look as big as possible.
  • Try to make your skin look flawless. Use concealer for any blemishes and for dark circles under your eyes and use foundation if you need it.
  • Having pale skin does help the porcelain look, but don't worry about it if you don't have pale skin. If you do and wish to keep it that way, use plenty of sunscreen and carry a parasol to keep the sun off of your face!
  • Use some light pink blush for your cheeks - use too much blush and you'll end up looking more like a clown than a doll.
  •  For your hair try having nice straight bangs and curls at the ends of your hair or buy a wig in that style. Pigtails with curls also will add to the look.
  • Keep your nails trimmed properly. A french manicure or just some clear nail polish is always great.

Style tips

  • Wear bonnets! These accessories are, in my opinion, even more doll-like than wearing headbows. You can find one to match your Lolita style or make one to match your Lolita style.
  • Try Classic or Sweet Lolita. While all styles of Lolita have their doll-like qualities, in my opinion these two have the most. 
  • For shoes, Mary Janes are the best! Wear them with knee-high socks with lace.
  • For Classic Lolitas, big fancy Lolita hats, especially ones with roses, work wonderfully for a doll look.


An Award

Pastel Panda was kind enough to award this ^ to me! If you're reading this, thank you! I'd leave a comment to thank you but for some reason I'm having trouble commenting with my Google account again. As soon as I find a way to get that fixed, if I'm able to, I'll award fifteen other bloggers! :)


Sock Hunting Part 1

My Lolita sock collection is, well, not quite as big as I'd like it to be. I went out "sock hunting" recently in search of some cute socks to work with my Lolita outfit and did manage to find some! I'll tell you right now, I can be pretty darn picky about finding things to work in with my Lolita co-ordinates, so that makes shopping for Lolita clothing
(especially in normal stores ) tricky sometimes, which explains why I didn't get many socks this last shopping trip. But this is only the beginning of my great sock-hunt! After all, to wear Lolita daily you need a great many pairs of socks! :)

Okay, so the left pair of socks in the top picture probably won't work into a lot of Lolita co-ordinates, but they were so cute! The red you see in them is actually a pastel pink but the picture didn't turn out that way for some reason... anyway, the pink bunny socks are so incredibly cute I could've died when I saw them. I desperately need a bunny-themed dress to wear with them!
As for the last pair of socks, they're just a plain pair of knee-highs and I actually have the same pair already, but you might be surprised how much a pair of white knee-high socks come in handy!

I'll continue shopping for socks as soon as possible, with spring coming up it should be no problem finding socks to go with Sweet Lolita!
