Sakizo 'Under The Dress' Tights Review

Already at the beginning of this month I ordered the beautiful Under The Dress tights from one of my favourite artists, Sakizo!

The ordering process goes via alice-books.com, a site that ships internationally. So no shopping service needed wohoo! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧
I ordered on 3th April, paid on the 8th and my order was shipped out on 10th April. 
It arrived five days later, on 15th April. 
Shipping was about 1000 yen.
Price and speed of shipping are totally acceptable!

The tights are one size 'M-L'
On the websites it says height from 155 to about 165cm. 
I'm 160 cm tall and I agree there is still some room left! ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ

As always, beautiful details at the upper part of the tights that will never be visible xD

The print is super-beautiful. (◡‿◡✿)
The tights can be washed at 30°C hand-wash!

As you can see, when worn the lighter details of the print are hardly visible. I don't mind it personally,
 the berry print alone is very beautiful  but you maybe want to keep that in mind when ordering.

In conclusion, I'm very satisfied with my order and I already have my eyes on the 
Romantic Jewel tights that are released next month!  (´・ω・`)

Helsinki Travel Diary - Part 4 - Hellocon Outfit

Some time ago the official Hellocon pictures were released. Yaaay (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧
Credit goes to the official photographers!

To be honest, I'm not too satisfied with this picture...the part of my face that isn't covered in shadows looks kinda awkward. Sadly there was only one picture per person released (with some exceptions) so no other picture with a better face :/ 
I like my pose though and how my petticoat looks really poofy ∩(︶▽︶)∩


...I think our group picture turned out really cute! 
definitely need a print version for my scrapbook  (*◕‿◕*)

Plus, I also like this random shot picturing me and Katrin at the the flea market booth. 
I think you can see me admiring the skirt I bought later ^^

What do you think?
For me, it was nice to look back on our Helsinki adventures once more!

✿ The Gardening Lolita ✿

The last weeks I have been working on a Lolita drawing  (◡‿◡✿)
I put quite much effort into it, spent a lot of time on the basic sketch and when I messed up the colouring I drew it again. It was so much fun!

I'm really happy with the result! 
Sadly it lost a bit in quality because of the scanning progress. Bad scanner is bad ('~`;)
In real life the gold details are a lot more shiny! And the windows are more greenish ~
You maybe can guess, I was quite inspired by some of my favourite artists like Imai Kira and Sakizo.

What do you think?
Do you like illustrations featuring Lolitas?

Modes4u Review

In this post I want to review my modes4u.com order. Actually, I wanted to do a group order because modes4u offers free shipping for orders over 60€ but we were so far from that 60€ that we decided to order separately.
This is what I ordered:

Two letter sets and a sticker sheet. 
With every modes4u order you get a free deco-tape (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I ordered on 29th March and my order arrived today, 11th April. 
They ship from Hong Kong so two weeks is totally acceptable!

Inside the envelope, the order was wrapped in this cute bag :3

I was positively surprised that the sticker sheet contains two sheets with different motives! 
I was expecting only one sheet ^^

'My only Rilakkuma' letter set. It contains sheets with four different motives, ten of each motive and four designs of envelopes, five of each. The Eiffel Tower details are so cute 

And the strawberry letter set. It comes with four designs, eight of each and four envelope designs, four of each. It also contains a stripe of seals with surely will end up in my scrapbook  (◡‿◡✿)

The downside of modes4u is that if you are under the said 60€, shipping is quite expensive. For every item you add to your cart shipping will be added, so the more you buy the more you pay. Shipping for bigger items (like letter sets) is also more than for the smaller items ¬_¬
Still I buy from modes4u as they offer such a variety of kawaii things!

I had letter sets like these before and I have to state they last quite long. I had mine for about two years :3

Did you guys ever buy from modes4u? 
What did you order?

Linzer Spring Meet-up

Yesterday we had another Meet-up in Linz. It was a small Meet-up this time, with seven people. I really enjoyed it, smaller Meet-ups are always nice to get to know the other Lolitas bette(◕‿◕✿)

We went to the Botanic Garden and then eating to a restaurant.
The weather wasn't the best but that didn't stop us  ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ

Our lovely group 

I tried to coordinate a spring-like outfit with roses as theme (◡‿◡✿)

Blouse - F21 // Dress - Innocent World // Tights - Offbrand // Socks - Topshop
 // Shoes - Deichmann // Parasol - Primark // Various Accessories 


I'm already looking forward to the next Meet-up (*◕‿◕*)

Collar ~!

If there is one thing my mum should really brag about then it is here knitting and crocheting skills! She made this adorable collars for me ~

One in brown x ivory and one in white ∩(︶▽︶)∩

I especially love the flower detail at the back of this collar. 
It will look super cute when I wear my hair in an up-do (◡‿◡✿)
