Taking a bit of a vacation.

A lot has been going on in my life lately and basically I need a bit of a vacation from this blog. I'm obviously a bit late in saying this because I've already stopped posting lately, ha, but I will begin posting again in June so I'm just taking this month off.

Bodyline Poodle Puppies Heart Apron JSK

I have no idea what the real title of this dress actually is or if it even has one, but that's what I'm calling it even if it is a mouthful.

Anyway, onto the review!

Although I will probably have to use AIR shipping again, I can definitely see why it's so cheap. Last time I ordered something from Bodyline, I ordered using AIR shipping because of the great deal, and while I wouldn't go back and change that decision it did cause a lot of frustration. For one thing my package arrived with rips on the outside bag, luckily it didn't damage what was inside whatsoever but if something had happened I doubt it would've protected my order whatsoever. Second, I had no idea where my order was  most of the time. I'm not entirely sure who was to blame for that, Bodyline or the shipping company, but after I contacted Bodyline they simply told me I'd have to wait a couple more weeks for my order and thankfully it did arrive.

This time was even worse! The package arrived with two, bigger rips that went completely through the outside packaging, my dress was okay but it felt slightly damp ( not sure if that was just the temperature or it actually was damp ) luckily however I checked it out and it didn't have any mold. This time I wasn't even sent any tracking information after I had placed my order for the dress, I emailed Bodyline about four times and they never responded! I was worried if my dress was even coming. I ordered it on the 28th of April and just recieved it today. Waiting wouldn't be so hard if I simply knew where my dress was, so I am not at all happy with AIR shipping. If I could spare the extra money, trust me, I wouldn't bother with them again.

Here are the rips that were on the outside of the package.

Thankfully the dress was undamaged.

Here it is, straight out of the packaging! Above is the front and below is the back.

I am pretty pleased with this dress, the print is VERY adorable, there is a cute heart pocket in the front and I love the design of the dress! The lace isn't bad either, it's not great but it's not bad. Especially the lace at the bottom of the dress.

Here is the lace at the bottom of the dress - 

And here is the lace around the heart pocket, which is the same as the lace at the top of the dress.

The top of the dress was a bit smaller than I'd thought it would be, but I've never had this type of JSK before. The straps are crossed as you can see in the above and below pictures, the bottom parts can be detached and there is also another button hole to make the straps shorter ( I think ), which I thought was pretty convenient.

Here are some close ups of the adorable print!

I think I should make these into my new background... anyway, here's the weird bow thing that came with the dress that I have no idea what to do with. :P

So overall I'd say I really like the dress but am extremely displeased with both Bodyline for the lack of communication with their customers and AIR shipping for pretty much sucking.

It feels like I haven't been posting a lot lately ( well, I probably haven't ) and I'm sorry for that. I'm still waiting for my dress to arrive from Bodyline which STILL hasn't given me my shipping information yet even though I paid for the dress last month. I will post a review as soon as it arrives, if it arrives.
I'm also working on creating a specific style of Lolita that might be a bit hard to pull off, I'm not sure how to start but I have a wonderful inspiration on where I want to go with it. If I knew how to sew it would be easier...
I'm not going to say much about the style yet aside from the fact that I already know some Lolitas might have a problem with it even though it's not breaking any rules whatsoever, and all I have to say about that is that I don't give a flying banana. :P

Also, next time I buy something it probably won't be from Bodyline for a couple of reasons. 1. I always buy from Bodyline, I want something different next time, as long as it's still affordable. 2. I'm growing tired of their lack of communication, I have a right to know where my order is since I'm the one paying for it. That's not to say I won't ever buy from them again, I just want to buy somewhere else next time.
I might look into some online fairy kei stores for the summer, if anyone knows of any good ( cheap ) ones, please let me know in the comments!

I  also might stop procrastinating and actually change the look of this blog this summer since it desperately needs it if I can ever find something I really like.

Finding Lolita Inspiration

( I JUST realized I hadn't made a single post yet this month. So sorry! I also apologize for this post not being about Mothers Day and for the fact that I still cannot post comments. I do read all of the comments and appreciate them, I just can't write back, sorry! )

 Ever feel bored with Lolita fashion? Before you post a "Leaving Lolita" sale on the sales comm, read through these tips to make sure you aren't just in need of a little Loli inspiration!

Watch Lolita Youtube videos

Here is a link to a playlist of Lolita videos I like to watch and take inspiration from, there are lots of Loli videos on Youtube and they are great for getting new ideas. You could come up with a new coordinate just by seeing someone else's, or feel like wearing your frills again when you see someone else having fun in theirs!

Look at some Lolita Tumblers

Little Lolita Moments, Lolita memes and You Know You're a Lolita When are only a few of the many Lolita Tumblers out there. Not only will you get a little laugh, you might just remember why you got into the fashion in the first place. Just looking at some of the Lolitas on Tumblr is also a wonderful inspiration, so many beautiful coordinates! 

Get some new clothes

 You might just be bored with wearing the same things. You don't have to purchase anything expensive, there are dresses from Bodyline for just 41 dollars ( and that's including shipping! ) and plenty of accessories just waiting for you at the mall. Just looking through a website that sells Lolita things can inspire you!

Give yourself a break

Maybe all you need is a little break from the fashion and subculture. That's perfectly fine, no one says you have to be a Lolita 24/7! 


Perhaps you're sick of seeing the same old styles of Lolita. If so, why not try creating your own? Don't be afraid to experiment! Play with your clothes, see what works and looks good together, then wear it! Lolita fashion itself wouldn't be here if the ones who came up with it were afraid of wearing something new.

Make a list of what you love about Lolita

Make a list of your favorite parts of Lolita fashion. It could be anything - rose prints on classic dresses, Mary Jane shoes, a particular color or fabric you love, anything. Once you have that list, you know what you love the most and you might just have your inspiration for a coordinate! 

If you still end up feeling like you don't want to wear Lolita anymore, don't feel bad about it. Sometimes people change their styles and there is nothing wrong with that, but for your own sake, don't give up all of your Lolita clothes! You probably worked hard to get them and if you ever want to return to the fashion you don't want to have to start from scratch all over again! At least keep your favorite dress or skirt, one pair of shoes ( ones in white or black that will go with a lot, or your favorite pair ), one pair of bloomers, a white blouse and at least one petticoat if not two.
