Friday was my birthday-I'm 23 now-, but today was the first day I got to celebrate with my parents. I had been sick and couldn't make it to New Orleans until last night.
Anyways, I have some pretty awesome presents this year! Aaron got me a kitty. I named her Sugar. I'll post photos of her really soon, since...my parents had my digital camera fixed as one of my presents! I felt so lost without it!
They got me a few other little things, too. When I got to the last box, I thought, "Hmm...feels like clothing...could it be something lo--No! Your parents are not rich; there is nothing lolita in here. Don't get your hopes up." I opened the box expecting something cute but normal (well, my normal anyways; I know I never fully dress normal). Instead, I found a new jsk! And there's a story behind the jsk too.
A while ago, on egl
, someone made this post
making fun of some lolita influenced items at Hot Topic. I looked at the website and decided that the second dress wasn't so bad, it was just a bit short and needed to be coordinated the right way. Then one day, Kammie and I went to the mall (Lakeside), and I spotted the dress in Hot Topic. Out of curiosity I had to try it on. It was actually really cute! All it needed was a black blouse underneath and a black skirt underneath to add length and ruffles to the bottom. It was full enough to accommodate my fluffiest petti, too. Kammie said I should buy it, but I decided to save my money for something else, as I wasn't sure I wanted to spend $68 on it when I was running low on money. Later on, my mom got me some little hair clips-red, white, and black bows-that would go so well with the dress, and I started to regret it. By this time, I was broke. Way before I got more money, someone bought the jsk. I was sooo mad at whoever bought it, too.
Turns out, my parents bought it for me. XD
I already have it coordinated perfectly in my head. Red shoes, black and white striped OTK socks, black blouse... So excited!
