A Very Sparkly Yule
Although I'm still a long way from fitting into my former clothes, I can't very well go about naked now can I? ;) So I have bought some new clothes again. :P My Taobao and Bodyline orders aren't home yet, but I managed to find something interesting from general retail shops for a change.
After a local mall expanded, a New Yorker store started up shop there. It's a chain I had zero previous experience with but judging from my first visit it seems to have something a bit different from all the other clothes shops around here which is always welcome. Especially since it looks like to have some Japanese street fashion vibes. There were some nekomimi hoodies too, but since I'm trying to downsize my hoodie-wardrobe and I was actually looking for a wintercoat to wear with my loli things, I only succumbed to this fluffy bear-eared jacket. I guess it could also be called a hoodie and I do wear it indoors at work if I have short sleeves underneath it, but it looks more outdoorsy to me. XD I'm thinking that I might get away with wearing my cape over this jacket if I have a skirt on.
Then the top. I saw it on H&M ad on TV and fell for it. Yes, the one with Katy Perry on it, wearing this top. Nevermind Katy, I just looove the sparkly ribbon! I went shopping for it the next chance I had. I was getting anxious since at the first H&M they only had S and XS left, thinking that I had missed my chance and the top was too popular. But luckily I remembered the other store in town and they still had plenty of stock. ^-^ So yey, now I feel all xmassy wearing red-whites! ~♡
H&M actually also had some blouses that looked to be more on the romantic side. I have to go back this week to see if they look ok on me and could be pulled off with loli items. It would be a blessing to buy some locally for a change and not fret about fit of the Asian mailorders. Then I could really clean out my tops-department of my wardrobe and just get rid of everything I don't really like anymore.
