Apologies, My First Brand Item, and News~

みなさん- ごめなさい!!!
Everyone, I'm so sorry for neglecting my blog for so long ;~; 
I have an excuse though!
My camera died and I had no idea where the battery charger went, so I had to order a new one and it took quite a while for it to arrive. Plus my camera sort of went crazy and would automatically do things which I didn't want it to do.... it was really frustrating, but I think it's finally resolved now. Once again, I'm sorry ;~;

In any case, I've got a video for you guys, and some exciting news (at least, it's exciting for me)!
I got my first (substantial) lolita piece from a brand store!!! If you're familiar with the fashion, you know that there are the big brands such as Angelic Pretty, Mary Magdalane, Innocent World, Baby the Stars Shine Bright, etc. These brands are quite expensive, and not really affordable for young beginning lolitas like myself. However, I was browsing through Closet Child a little while ago and found something spectacular.
If you don't yet know what Closet Child is, I highly suggest you check it out. They sell used (and sometimes unused) lolita fashion, generally for much cheaper prices than if you were buying them second hand from regular people. People often use shopping services to order from them, but since I didn't want to shell out the extra money for that, I did it myself. Thankfully everything worked out fine, and I got my package really quickly after I ordered!
Now the moment you've been waiting for.... what is this mysterious item that I ordered?


Alice and the Pirates' Holiday of the Hulim Hulum Brass Band Skirt!
I know, the name for this skirt is really long and strange.
I believe it was released this past winter, and when I saw it I fell in love~ I really like the print on it, and the colors it came in were so pretty! I saw the green/grey one on Closet Child, and although I generally don't go for green things, I figured my wardrobe could use something that wasn't red (I already have two red skirts, so I figured I should try something different).
I did an unboxing video (which is very short, so I apologize for that).
Here are some more photos of the skirt!

The bow is detachable!
When I first saw the bear I thought it was a pig x3
I love how the lion pirate is sitting on a mushroom. And the girl is pretty!
Cherry Blossom tree, perhaps?
The gold lace is pretty <3 And I love all the swirls~
I don't have any photos of me wearing it, because I'm sort of lazy hehe~
But I'm so happy to have this skirt <3 Even though I think it's technically a holiday print, I'll definitely wear it year round x3
(Also, here's the unboxing!)

And now for the news!
I'm going to be moving to Florida this August! I'm scared ;~; I'll be at university there, and hopefully I'll be able to do a dual degree program where I'm at that school for 3 years, and then at a school in New York for 2 so that I can get a degree in Chemical Engineering. I'm so nervous ;~; I just found out today about it all, so it's all quite sudden haha.

Anyways, thanks for reading! And I promise that I'll update more often now that I have my camera back to normal :3


  1. I always see this shade green as more blue than green (so turquoise). I think it's just my brain though, everyone else calls it green. Anyway it looks great with the grey and gold. The tassels on the bow are really cute too.

    1. Haha it actually is more turquoise in real life, so you're right ^_^ The tassels are quite cute!

  2. Ooh I'd love to own something from AatP, it's my favourite brand. Their designs are beautiful <3
    I've bought from Closet Child a few times and I love how fast their delivery is~

    1. Their designs are quite beautiful, especial the prints! ^_^ More often than not though the designs are far to gothic for me though haha~
      The delivery is fantastic! And relatively cheap too.
