Photos from as far back as January 2012!  





The last two years of my life have been spent completely occupied with nursing school.  Between year round school with 12-hour clinicals, 8-hour lectures and working 12-hour shifts at a hospital I had almost no time for wearing lolita or making outfit posts.

Now that I have graduated here is my official catch-up post from the past two years :)

Every New Years I spent my school holiday visiting my sister in Japan where she lives near Osaka.

I love the variety of looks and pieces in your wardrobe that you! The colors and textures that you mixed and matched all created such beautiful coordinates!

Congratulations on completing nursing school!
That orange plaid dress is really fantastic, also the first outfit from NakaCon...
You look like you are having quite a lot of fun - work hard, play hearty, keep living life! <3

I love all of your coords! The IW coord you wore to Titanic looks so long on you! Do you mind me asking how tall you are? (I'm really tall and my height has been holding me back from actually buying Lolita items, so I always wonder when I see something long ouo)

Your sewing skills are great and I love how your hair looks in the picture of you at your party! You're lucky that you've got natural hair that goes perfect with Lolita.
I loved looking at your pictures! uwu

Thank you! The reason the IW dress looks so long is because it's the long version :) I'm 5'4" and I can wear most normal length dresses without a problem but sometimes I do need an underskirt with AP in particular

Oh no, I'm so sorry that I never responded to you!!! It's been a couple weeks but I don't normally login to LJ unless I'm actually going to make a comment on something.

thank you for the info!!! I'm about 6'1''' so the long IW dresses are perfect for me! I'm always on the lookout for anything that's above 98-100 cm :)
Thanks again! I loved your post! :)

All of your coords are so wonderful~!

I like your style! It's very cute.
The first naka kon 2012 outfit is gorgeous *_*
And the easter 2012 one is soo cute *_* I think I like that one the best. And your hair looks lovely in that one too!
