A bit of this and that

Sooo, actually I'm not in the best mood today, partly because I'm a little nervous about tomorrow when I'll be visiting one of the dancing schools to hand in my application. I have an appointment there so I'm not sure if I'll really just hand it in and that's it or if they want to talk to me right away, so I'm a little anxious @.@ Keep your fingers crossed ^^

My fortune cookie seems optimistic though :D

These last days I finally got to do a little sewing again and I'm really happy about that. And here's a little teaser on my current project. It's for the next meet-up which is going to take place in 2 weeks under the motto "fairytales":

I'm open to guesses by which fairytale my outfit will be inspired :D (except for guesses from those who know ;D)

Aaand, you might already suspect it: I've been tagged again ^^ This time by Mia.
Here we go:

1. How would you describe your style?
A bit of this and that I guess ^^ I don't want to limit myself to just Lolita or just any other fashion. But it's always rather dark and pretty feminine, I don't wear any trousers for example (though that might change if I really become a dancing instructor).

2. Sweet, Gothic or Classic - what do you prefer wearing?
I'm really comfortable in Gothic, though I also adore Classic.

3. If you could only buy clothes in one shop for the rest of your life, which would it be?
Wow, that's really hard... H&M always has a wide range of styles, so maybe this... or rather Orsay, I love how everything they sell looks very feminine and elegant. And you can even find loliable clothes there from time to time ^^

4. Your favourite designer/label?
When it comes to "normal" clothing I don't really have one, but when it comes to Lolita it's Alice and the Pirates, closely followed by Innocent World.

5. Your dream dress/piece of clothing?

The "Dance of the black cat" JSK II by Alice and the Pirates *___*
It's the one and only musical print that I like and it fabulous and beautiful and wonderful and I fit into it *___* I soooo want this thing in black or green!

6. What do like best at meet-ups - taking photos, eating or doing something cultural?
Well... if you want to call it that it would be eating, but by that I mean going to a café and have coffee together. I love that we also do something cultural and taking photos is also fun (even though I always feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera) but I just love it when we all settle down together and chat. It's a great opportunity to meet people that you don't usually get in touch with ^^

7. Brand, Indiebrand, offbrand or self-made - what do you wear most?
Offbrand or handmade... I think it's pretty even between these two ^^

8. Which colour dominates your wardrobe?
Definitely black.

9. What's the average height of your heels?
I think that's about 5 cm. That's also the height that is the most comfortable for me when it comes to wearing shoes all day long or dance in them. But I also have higher ones that are still comfortable ^^

10. How many purses do you own and how many of them do you use regularly?
I own ... 6 I think and I regularly use 3 at the moment.

11. How old is the oldest piece of clothing in your wardrobe?
Oooh... Hm... That's either one of the tent-like shirts from my father that I sometimes use as a sleeping-shirt or it's my two Nirvana-shirts that I got when I was... 13 or 14 I think

And again, I can't think of any questions from the top of my head...

By the way, if you're looking for your cat one day, try the door. Yes, I mean the door. The cat could be ON  the door :D

So with this I say good night and read you later :D

A Valentine and a tag

Last weekend my fellow manatees and I got an incredibly sweet valentine:

I feel the same way, you girls are fabulous and I wouldn't want to miss one of you! <333
I just wish we had more time for each other, it's been a while since we've all been together :( But luckily the next meet-up is coming up ^^ *ongk ongk ongkigongk*

And I've been tagged again, this time by Mara! (I love doing these :D)
So here we go:

1. What's your favourite flavour?
I love coconut flavoured things! (like chocolates or liquor) Ironically I don't like eating coconut itself though XD And of course I also love anything that is/tastes like strawberries ^^ (btw, for Valentinesday I got strawberries from my boyfriend <3 He's so cute ^^)

2. What's your dream destination to travel to?
Scotland ^^ Edinburgh, to be exact, though Inverness and Fort WIlliam would also be nice... any Scottish place basically ^^ But I'd also love to go to Paris and Finland one day.

3. Do you wear nailpolish?
Actually I really like nailpolish, but I hate waiting for it to dry XD That's why at the moment I'm not wearing any :D

4. What would you take with you on a lonely island?
A boat :D

5. Your favourite weather?
When I can stay inside I love rain and stormy weather. When I'm outside I love when it's snowing and when it's cloudy but not raining.

6. Which characteristic do you wish for?
I wish I was more patient with myself... and a maybe a little more extroverted.

7. Sunshine or shadow?

8. Can you keep a secret?
Yes, I can. I want other people to keep my secrets, so why shouldn't I do so myself? ^^

9. Do you have an idol? If yes, who and why?
I don't really have an idol... Though I admire Yulia Zagoruychenko for her dancing skills, body control and her charisma. Just watch this and be amazed:

10. What's your favourite piece of clothing?
That's difficult... I really like my Flocky Rose Metamorphose skirt... but maybe it's my rose-skirt that I sewed last year, because I'm really proud of how it turned out and I wear it a lot ^^

11. Is the world going to end this year?
Nah, I don't think so ^^ I'm looking forward to the hysteria, though ;D

I won't tag anyone though, I can't think of any questions right now XD

By the way I'm happy to say that thanks to my beloved Stefan I had a very relieving talk with my parents and the world looks a little brighter for me again. I've also already managed to write a few applications, though when I wanted to bring the ones located in Dresden  to the respective dancing schools, I had to discover that they are closed at the moment due to school holidays -.-
But anyways, the ones for dancing schools in Leipzig are already sent. So let me hear a huge Accomplishment-YAAAAY for me :D

Just dropping by to say Hi

As I had announced, long time, no post. Sorry about that, but well... my life's pretty messy at the moment.
At the moment I am writing applications for an apprenticeship in my absolute dream-job: dancing instructor.
And I want this so badly that I'm just terrified to do something wrong, so I've spent the whole day trying to, but not even finishing one application @.@ God, I just want this to be perfect. And while trying to write something perfect I can't even write something mediocre @.@ This sucks so badly... and don't even get me started on my mental state -.-

Yesterday I finally had a reason again to dress up and leave the house, even if it was "just" visiting Vroni. So I thought I might as well take some pictures, even if it was nothing special.

Seems like the dress is kind of see-through O.o I guess that's what you get from not lining it. And yes, I paired stripes with stripes.  

So now I'm off again, trying to write applications. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
