Jeans Mini Skirt 2.0

Hi my dears,

I've done a little sewing lately (don't worry, I haven't given it up. There are some items waiting in my to-sew-list). Now I own no more than two pair of jeans, the third one was too worn out, so I made a skirt out of it.

I did this once before, and I really like this style because you only need an old pair of jeans and a bit of fabric. In return, I made box pleats on this skirt. The fabric is the leftover of my maritime deux-pièce.

The lace is from Berlin (^.^)

It gives me a bit the feeling like spring is coming (at the moment, it's raining outside).

Wine Red

I bought a new purse today, after the old one fell to pieces (which is ok, I had it for ages and it did me a good service). I hope this one lasts for some years, too.

Actually, I'd rather had a purse made of fake leather, but it's a shame how hard it is finding a pretty and high-quality one not containing genuine leather *sigh*. Nevertheless, it's exactly the style I was looking for and I absolutely love the color (^.^).

Hi cuties,

sorry for not having blogged the last few days, there were quite a lot of things going on around me...
but here I am again! (^.^)

Last Saturday, we finally had another meet-up and I was lucky that I managed it to go because at first, it didn't look like. We had all a great time and I met some new people who were all very kind. There even came two guys from Konstanz, Germany, extra to see us after they saw the event on facebook. We went to Winterthur to the Technorama, which is kind of a museum where they expose "science". I think it's made really interesting, since you can touch or interact a lot. It was very funny walking around between so much technique in frilly dresses.

So, of course you want to see photos, right?

Outft rundown:
Blouse: Orsay/customized
Bolero: handmade
Skirt: handmade
Socks & lace tights: Offbrand
Shoes: Antaina
Hat: handmade

Accessoires: handmade/ H&M

Hava a nice day!

Good Old Times

Remember that time when Fred and George repeatedly hit Voldemort in the face with snowballs?

“Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.” - SS/PS, CH. 12

*gg* Just found this on Tumblr.

Now I'm Defitively Broken

Spring weather makes me act unreasonable. So I went shopping and spent - as usual - too much money. Here's what I got:


A spring jacket. This is normally not really my colour, but I fell in love with the lace fabric...

Simple black pumps. Something every woman should have in her wardrobe. I didn't, so far, because pumps normally don't fit me. Either they're too big or too small, but these here fit perfectly!

Then, I replaced my sunglasses. The big black ones are pretty alike the ones I had before, and the aviator sunglasses are just too stylish for not having a pair xP

Keep It Simple

Hi my dears!

This weekend, I had the opportunity to wear my new jsk! I just put on black tights and a bit of jewellery with it, no blouse (oh, bad girl!).

I hope you started well into the new week!

Is This The End Of The World As We Know It?

Hi everyone,

you all heard what happened/is still happening in Japan. At this point, I'd like to express my concernment and wish all the people in Japan and their relatives and friends a lot of strength and hope. I also hope that these incidents make the goverements all over the world think about nuclear power plants and the associated danger.

Normally, there would be an Inspiring Sunday post today, but I thought I'll recommend you a movie instead: 9, an animated end time film about 9 rag dolls who try to save the world after mankind has been eradicated by evil machines. An affecting story about courage, trust, betrayal and the question if it's really worth it to give your life for revitalisation of the world.

2 Outfits

Hey everyone!

First of all, thank you so much for 45 followers! I love you all! (platonically xD)

After a little hiatus, I finally managed it to wear (and photograph) Lolita again.

With this Outfit, I went to a café and then to the cinema to see True Grit. The movie was not that bad, since I like most western films, the landscape and the costumes were adorable, just as the camera work. Although the plot was a bit tenacious sometimes, I think Hailee Steinfeld acted very well.

Jsk: selfmade
Blouse: selfmade
Tights: H&M
Shoes: Vögele Shoes
Accessoires: H&M, selfmade

Then I tried a black-and-white-Gothic-outfit.I liked how it turned out, and I felt very comfortable.

Blouse: selfmade
Skirt: selfmade
Tights: H&M
Belt: H&M
Accessoires: New Yorker, selfmade

I wish you a nice Saturday!

Looking At The Looking-Glass

I bought this necklace yesterday at New Yorker:

But I didn't like the pink bow and the cheap-looking diamond charm, so I transformed it a little bit:


I also found out something useful about my personality:

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.
The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.
The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

Radical Addicted To Rock'n'Roll

People, don't listen to music if you want to learn English properly. It should be "radically", but since it's a song text, I can't change it. Tant pis.


Actually, the main reason why I'm writing is the fabulous event of the execution of my new jsk!
As I already mentioned it, I used black light gabardine. It's got a zipper on the side (I always fail putting the zipper on the left side where it belongs, so we just ignore the fact that the zipper is on the right side...) and a back shirring with lacing. I put ruffles on the neckline, on the sides and on the hem. I like!

I'm quite proud of the breast darts (^.^)
