OOTD - Carousel Pony

Skirt - Bodyline (altered) Blouse - Evans Shoes - Bodyline Socks - Sock Dreams Basket Bag - TKMaxx Head Bow - ASOS Basket Bow - Bodyline Dolly Mix Bracelet - Dolly Mixx Pearl Bracelet - Evans Animal Ring - Accessorize Teacup Ring - Dolly Mixx
Flower Ring - Primark

This is what I wore out today. I've kind of fallen a bit in love with Lolita fashion, so I bought a few pieces so I could put an outfit together. The skirt was actually 2, that I had to sew together, because as you can imagine, plus sizes are even more scarce in subculture fashions than mainstream fashion. I think it worked out okay though, I would definately do it again, it was pretty easy. I really love the carousel print on this skirt, it's so cute! I've also ordered myself some custom fabric from Spoonflower, I designed a lolita inspired border print with Maltese dogs on it. I hope it comes out okay, I can't wait to make a skirt with it!

Oh & because it's Easter, I thought I'd paint a bunny on one of my nails. Polka dots & bunnies = cute! Happy Easter everyone:)

  14. I have been looking for over-the-knee socks that don't cut in to create a kind of muffin-top effect but also don't just constantly need to be pulled up.

    Your socks here don#t look like they're digging in, did you have to yank them up every 5 mins or would you recommend them?

    Lovely outfit x

  32. Hello there!
    I just discovered your blog and I must tell you that I LOVE the way you dress. I'm so jealous, haha.

    Actually, I found it a bit disturbing that we look so much alike, I'm only a tiny bit smaller than you (US size 16).

    I don't know if you knew about forever 21, but I wanted to let you know about this shop since I love their feminine clothes myself, especially all the florals.

  34. Hello! I'm a long time lurker, first time commenter. I've always loved your looks. Now I see you doing Lolita, which I've loved for a while but never had the guts to even think about wearing. You're an inspiration, girl!
    Also, if the fabric you ordered on spoonflower turns out all right, could you post a link to it? I've been looking for a good border print to make a skirt with.

  39. You are some form of genius. i love j fashion but as a uk size 16, cant fit in to most things, buy two and sew them together! Genius! thank you my darling x

  40. Wow, you are so resourceful! Can't believe I never thought of buying two and sewing them together. So awesome! You are a true inspiration :)

  41. I love this set. I actually did the same thing with my bodyline skirt in black. The yellow one is too cute!

    What did you do with the extra ties? I'm still trying to figure out what to do with mine.
