A cool look from Japanese menswear shop K’s Clothing, featuring Kiryuyrik shirt and pants and a cardigan by No ID.
One of the upcoming reserves from Juliette et Justine showcases the work of Irish stained-glass artist and book illustrator, Harry Clarke.
The illustrations are from Tales of Mystery and Imagination by Edgar Allen Poe (Ireland, 1889 - 1931)

Pretty sure I need the third one, which features an underwater motif: coral, jellyfish, seaweed and even a lobster!

Misako Aoki to release Lolita Fashion Guidebook
In our interview with her, Misako mentioned that she would soon be releasing a guidebook for lolita fashion. It’s just been confirmed on the Japan Lolita Association’s Facebook page that the book will be launching on March 25th, 2014 – accompanied with a shot of Misako herself with the sample.
Unfortunately, the book will be in Japanese only, but overseas fans who are still interested will be able to pick it up on Amazon.
(Sorry if you’re sick of us spamming you about Misako Aoki. But also, not sorry.)
Check out this recent collaboration between Attachment and French accessories brand Côte&Ciel. The resulting backpack is sleek, modern, and comes in two color ways—solid black and black with electric blue details.
Gotta have one? Purchase here.
It feels great having my photoshop back tbh. I plan on making another one like this but with specific brand favorites and collections. Starting with my #1 fave Liz Lisa!
These are a select few of what I’m currently obsessing over. (｡･ω･｡)ﾉ♡

One other thing we covered with Misako was how she sees the lolita aesthetic evolving, particularly as its followers age:
What do you think lolita clothing will look like in three to five years?
I’m expecting a lot of trends in classic lolita, because the age range – particularly in Japan – is very high. People who got into it when they were young are still there, so the fans are somewhat older than they are elsewhere. I’m expecting a more “adult” style of lolita fashion.
Thank you! Yes, I hope I can.
1. Create a wishlist. Put all the dresses you’d love to own on that list. Maybe keep worn pictures of those items in whatever document or folder you’re using so you can get a feel for what they might look like on you.
2. Mostly stick to that wishlist. Try to seek only those things and buy them without much distraction. Most of my impulse buys (Eternal Party, Lady Sloth JSK, Fragonard JSK) haven’t really worked out for me. If I’d saved that money for dream dresses I really wanted, I’d have been much happier.
3. If circumstance dictates and your intuition tells you so, throw rules 1 and 2 out the window. Rules 1 and 2 don’t really work for new releases or dresses you haven’t seen before. When Day Dream Carnival got announced it obviously wasn’t on my wishlist — but my intuition said fuck the wishlist: this is perfect and I need it on my body. If you feel that strongly about a new dress, or an old dress you had no idea existed, chances are it’ll be a good buy.
4. When you inevitably sell Lolita items that don’t work out for you, keep that money in a Lolita fund. I know this is not always realistic (we have bills to pay) but it keeps me from dipping into my paycheques so much for new clothing. That way when something from my wishlist comes up, I’m ready. I can afford it, because I sold what didn’t look good on me.
5. Keep track of what cuts work for your body, and what garments just won’t fit you. I’ve bought a lot of dud dresses that just didn’t flatter my body at all. I try to take note every time. For example: I typically need detachable straps. I need shirring (by and large) and I can’t wear mini-sleeve OPs. I’ve tried things to the contrary before, and they’ve failed me — so I just won’t spend money on them anymore!
Sound advice for building any kind of wardrobe. Focus on what you love; don’t settle for less when opportunities arise.
