Surface Spell Dew Drop Chiffon Floral JSK

Okay, this probably seems like shopping is everything I do in life :D
Our second Taobao-order arrived today ^^ As you may or may not remember, this is the dress I ordered.
I had it made to my measurements and changed it a little bit so that the skirt starts at my natural waist.
That's the dress still packaged:

I was so happy because you can already see how beautiful the fabric is *___*
Since I already have a Surface Spell dress I was expecting good quality and I got good quality ^^ I found one loose thread when I unpacked it but that's it.
So this is the dress unwrapped:

Unfortunately I already thought the straps looked quite short and indeed, they are a little too short ;__; I hope I find a way to make them longer but I don't know if I'll find chiffon like that. It's super-soft with beautiful blue dots *__* So if one of you knows where I can get fabric like that, I'd be sooo grateful!
Anyways, this is me wearing it, with and without petti:

The detachable bow wasn't pinned on in the middle, I realised that later XD
As I already said, the chiffon is fantastic, as well as the tulle at the bottom, it's also sooo soft! The dress is probably more suitable for warmer temperatures because it's not very thick. And the fact that it's chiffon also has one downside:

You can see the seam allowance through it, but it's not that bad, so I don't care ^^
Here's a close up of the skirt bottom because I think it's incredibly pretty *__*

How do you like it? ^^

Brand-tastic! XD

I have been looking for it for quite some time and now I finally have it: The flocky rose print skirt by Meta!
It has just arrived and I'm quite happy with it, though it is a little shorter and thinner than I had expected. But still, it's soooo beautiful! *__* Have a look:

This print is so pretty *_____*
And this is me wearing it with my casual petti:

A few days ago, the bodyline skirt I had ordered has also arrived but sadly it doesn't look good on me so I'm going to sell it :(

Sewing fail... or not?

I haven't blogged much lately, there's a lot going on in my head at the moment and I'm not always in the mood for it.
But I am always in the mood for applepie ^^ Luckily my boyfriend is little by little conquering the kitchen and made one and it was delicious!
Yummy yummy yum yum ^^ He'll definitely cook and bake more from now on! XD

As some of you may have already read, Mia, Sophie and I have started working on our Vampire Requiem fabric and as I said I want to make an underbust JSK. Well, it's almost done. In fact it has already been almost done several days ago but I was so angry with the thing and myself that I just put it away and didn't want to look at the damned thing. You may already tell: I messed it up. Kind of. When I put it on again today it didn't look that bad to me anymore. Have a look at it:

The two things that bother me most are the fact that I should've made the curves around the breasts smaller and the shirring panel bigger because it's a pain in the ass to get into it (getting out is even worse).
I've thought about undoing it and changing those parts but I don't have much of the plain blue fabric left and to be honest I just don't want to because it is the first lined thing I've ever sewn and everything turned out very well and tidy.
The straps are actually supposed to be crossed in the back but they didn't turn out long enough so I probably have to make it a neckholder. I'd rather lengthen them and stick to the former plan, maybe I can find a way to do that.
Another thing that bothers me is that the lace sticks out on one side of the "neckline":

I'll see if I can fix that.
So, what do you think of it? Wearable or total catastrophe?

And then my lovely boyfriend also got me a supercool gadget:

It's for drying nailpolish ^^ You apply it and then you push the banana button and the monkey blows it dry XD Isn't it the cutest thing ever? I am so in love with it <3

An outfit and shopping

A few days ago I met with Sophie in the city and this is what I wore. Nothing special but I thought I'd share it with you because I wore my new shoes, my new necklace and my new bag ^^

Bad photo is bad... or maybe I'm just ugly XD Look at my arm, it's monstrous O.o

Today the weather was so nice here in Dresden that we just had to leave the house ^^ And we wanted to get some things, so we (my boyfriend and me by the way <3) went shopping.
We bought quite a few things for our flat and some uninteresting stuff (and some nice new clothes for Stefan), so I just show you the things I find best:

Sweeeets <3 Some sherbert bonbons and Jelly Bellies *yummy*
The flip-flops perfectly match my blue summer dress (although now there is even less black in this outfit *gnnnn*) and now that summer is nearly over (although it feels like we never had summer here in Germany this year) they only cost 2€!
Then there's a cool striped sweater underneath the whole stuff (it's blue by the way, the photo looks quite purple-ish on my screen) and a matching nailpolish.
And finally a liptint. It's the Perfect Stay by Astor and it was recommended to me by Mimi because I really don't like the way conventional lipstick feels on your lips. I tried it out in the store and it really feels a lot better. In fact, you don't feel it at all XD I picked a shade that is very close to my natural lip colour because I mainly want to make my lips look even. In particular the sides of my upper lip are always so pale, they are almost blue :/ Now I just have to practice applying it because I was always bad at applying lipsticks and this one's even a little harder because it's like a felt tip but I think it'll work with some practise ^^

And furthermore, the Bodyline sale has finally arrived ^^ Sophie wants to order some things and asked if I want to have something, too, so I take this one in green:

I've had my eye on this for quite some time and even though I don't fit into the corset-thingy I thought it was about time to take a shot at it ^^

I hope you also enjoyed the good weather today! (that is, if the weather was good, where ever you are ^^)
