365 LLC Days 258 - 260: Of Box Stepping, Complimenting A New Lolita's Coord Post, & Photographing A Favorite Print

September 15, 2018

This was a bit funny as my brain actually jumped to a different type of box step in dance. I've learned both before but I figure to share this one as it's more fun to do with a partner and doesn't need to learn much more to be fancy. It is called the box step because it indeed creates a box shape with your feet (if you stay in one place) and can be done to dances like the waltz. (One of these days we need a ball with dancing and maybe a little workshop for those who wish to learn.)

It actually wasn't a post for a new Lolita but in pm on fb. New friend showing me a few of her new purchases she was very excited to throw on.

One of my favorite prints that I have looked to find for a very long time. It's in the cut I wanted and one of the colors I sought it in, thanks to a friend scouting it on a Japanese second~hand shop that has since closed, but I can't help but be mesmerized by it.

The gilding, witches working their magics, and red eyed cats slinking about the print, it just screams "wear me!" I love the use of colors in this print, giving it a sort of antique vibe to it like a weathered parchment. Admittedly, when I first saw this print released I had wanted to red or black so badly but over the years I have felt the need for the brown (or all of the colors honestly). It's truly a wonderful print.


It's a bit rainy and dreary today, I have been more or less glued to my sewing table watching the weather balancing a cat on my lap. Today's prompt was a nice change of pace and got me to ruffle through my dresses for a bit. I really do love this print, I think it's the right level of elegant and witchy.

As for everything else, I do think when it's good to encourage when someone is on the right path, it can be nerve wracking when you are so new. (You're doing great!) And I am 100% wanting a Lolita fashion ball, has anyone done one before? Let me know in the comments or messaging.

Well, it's time to refresh my pot of tea, I've been drinking a nice chamomile today, and maybe I'll take a break and read or watch a spooky movie while I enjoy it. Cheers! XOXO
