(Belated) Week 9

Okay, I'm not on time, I know. But I didn't really have a choice, I didn't have a good internet connection in Munich where I spent the last 5 days.
I attended a seminar on Dance4Fans/Videoclipdancing there, which was really exhausting, but also a lot of fun. I can't even tell you how bad my knees looked throughout all the days because we had several choreographies in which we had to get down and do stuff on the floor. And I don't think I've ever had muscles aching this much before! I couldn't even pick things up from the ground today and sitting down and getting up are like torture!
But I'm optimistic that this will go away soon ^^

Anyways, here's this (or rather last) week's topic:

How Lolita has changed me

Well first: I now wear even less trousers than I did before. I have just gotten used to that girly feeling of wearing skirts and dresses.
Second: It has definitely changed my shopping behaviour. Especially in the beginning I started to only buy things that I could somehow include into my lolita wardrobe. This has changed meanwhile. Today I'm more focused on what I can wear to work. Sometimes that even goes along, but most times it doesn't and to be honest I really wish I had the money to go on a huge lolita shopping spree.
Ah well, we can't have everything...

Third: When I buy something I take more time to consider if it is really worth its price. Quality is a very important factor in this fashion and lolita has made me more aware that if you spend a lot of money on something, it shouldn't be poorly constructed or made of cheap materials. 

Fourth: Lolita was one of the factors that made me start sewing (which sadly I hardly have the time for nowadays :( )

Fifth: I spend more time planning what I wear, how I accessorise it and I have become very critical when it comes to coordinating clothes.

I'm sure there are some more things, but these are the first ones that came to my mind. What about you (if you wear lolita at all), how has it changed you?


  1. Hattest Du in München wenigstens ein bisschen Zeit, Dir die Stadt anzugucken?

    Gute Besserung für die Knie D:

    1. Leider nicht wirklich, weil das Seminar immer bis 16 Uhr ging. Danach musste man erstmal zurück ins Hotel zum Duschen und da ich keinen Föhn hatte musste ich dann immer erst warten, bis meine Haare trocken waren und dann wars auch schon Zeit sich wieder mit den anderen zu treffen und gemeinsam essen zu gehen :D
      Vielleicht ein andermal ^^"

      Dankeschön ^^ Die Knie sehen schon wieder ganz gut aus, nur der Muskelkater ist immernoch nicht besser, vor allem da ich gestern auf Arbeit gleich wieder Zumba und Videoclipdancing geben musste XD

  2. I love your blog!!!!
