Day and night cordinates with Starlight Carnevale

I love how you can get such different looks by changing the color of the print!

I recently realized my Lolita idol who got me into the fashion isn't such a nice person (I know everyone is human and I don't expect everyone to be perfect), so I don't really want to follow them anymore. Problem is, they were such a huge influence on me that without them I've found my inspiration for Lolita is lacking and I feel unmotivated to wear it and a fear of being myself has suddenly emerged. How can I find inspiration on my own without looking up to others for it?

Look to things other than people to inspire you. Movies, music, plays, literature, art, architecture. I have an inspiration folder on my computer that has everything from wedding dresses to spiral staircases, castles to cottages, tea sets, pretty food, gardens, paintings, graveyards, anything that I find beautiful and interesting goes in there. While it’s great to get inspiration for your coordinates from other people’s coordinates, you can also find a lot of inspiration in the rest of the world around you.

Challenge~? Challenge~! Gothic lolita coord in sax! Is it possible?

So I was having trouble doing a coord in all sax that was convincing for Gothic Lolita, it always turned out too Classic/Sweet with some dashes of goth thrown in. So I went ahead and added some black in there but used sax as the focus and this is what I got.
I’m going to start with this dress in sax because it’s super elegant and they even give you a picture of it with a black shawl that shows you it will work nicely with black. Then I’ll wear it with this shawl in black, these tights, and this hat in sax. To give the hat a slightly more Gothic touch I’ll add a brooch to it somewhere that mimics the look of the dripping jewels and I would replace the white roses with black ones and possibly add a black veil or some black lace into where the veil in the hat already is. Then I’ll do black lace gloves, a blue ring, and a blue brooch on top of the shawl. Then I’ll go with these boots in sax and add some shoe clips to tie them in a little more.

Two of my best friends stayed with me for the last week of term at uni. For our second day together, we went to the university botanic gardens and had a picnic so I wanted to wear something suitably summery with my handmade bonnet~

More shots from that one time I wore lolita recently~~~

Sweet lolita isn’t really my thing so that coord is a little sparse @_@ I’m all about classic-sweet tho!
