Lolita 52 Challenge: Week 9

So I'm finally settled in and I managed to get a few small pieces of furniture for the time being.  I've got a lovely tall cabinet that has a two shelf display case, book nook and lower media cabinet with doors.  I also picked up a small table that I want to refinish and make into a kotatsu.  I know it will just all look splendid when I'm finished with it.  I'll need to buy a heater to screw under it, but that can wait until I have more money.  Right now my job isn't cutting it and I'm going to need to find some way to get more hours.

This weeks Lolita 52 topic is "5 keywords that describe my personal Lolita style".  There are just so many words I could use to describe this that I'm not really all that sure.  If I had to take a long time to think about it, they would be... - insert long pause here -


  1. SWEET.  Even for Sweet Lolita, I'd have to say my style is sweet in the sense that it would make you say "aww" more than the toothache aspects of candy and desserts all over.  
  2. SIMPLE.  My style is simple because I keep the colors to a minimum and try not to have more than three in the entire coordinate.  This can't be helped sometimes though.  
  3. FRUGAL.  Besides the pretty AP purse I picked up earlier, nothing I own is brand or expensive and I even got the purse for a steal.  I'll always consider money first before buying any pieces and if I buy anymore brand I'll get it secondhand and as cheap as I can manage.
  4. ADORABLE.  Everything I have is rather adorable in nature.  I don't go for anything so plain that it doesn't show my taste in childish things.
  5. CHILDLIKE.  I've always been a six year old at heart and my style shows that.  As many frills as I can get away with and pastel colors.  Anything I'd wear you could easily see a small child or toddler in.  Most of my casual items have ribbons on them or Hello Kitty.  Think of something a girly six year old would want?  I probably have something on my coordinate that fits.
