Ofelia market

This Sunday I visited Ofelia market, place for all kinds of quirky styles including lolita, for the first time. I loved all the beautiful and original accessories and clothes vendors had for sale, I wish I could have brought half the stuff there home with me. In the end I settled for a cameo ring since I found one that actually fits me! I have quite thin fingers, rings tend to be a serious problem and that's partly why I wear them seldom. Also, I can't buy one without lots of room for adjustment or trying it on first. Now I need to hunt down cute matching necklace though...

I decided to take my laciest dress out for the first time. I feel it's too much for normal days so I pretty much need some kind of special occasion to wear it.  Anyways, pictures.

Tired derpyface after the market.
JSK, blouse and headbow(it belongs on the dress) IW. It's too bad I forgot to take picture of the back of the dress. It has a lovely lace bustle!

The ring I bought from Smooth jewelry, a Finnish designer. My nails usually have French manicure unless I feel the urge to do some special pattern.

Let it snow

It's been snowing like there's no tomorrow for the last two days here. I have pretty much tried to stay inside as much as possible since the wind whipping snow everywhere and making it feel even more freezing. However, today the sun was shining and everything was white! Perfect day for some shopping. I piled on multiple stockings and forwent buns and curls in favor of my woolen beret. I'll need to hunt down some red rose corsages though, they'd go so well with those tights in other coords too.

Other from basic shops.
Earlier this week I tried to make dot nails. I like the idea, but clearly need some more practise. Also maybe better brush as well... It really took some crazy acrobaty to get that picture alone.

I got some nice, blue silk to make an evening gown with. My boyfriend has a course ball with other officer students (I guess that's right, military ranks are difficult to translate) and I'm his avec. Some fast sewing coming up.
