First, a brief update: there was a bit of a behind-the-scenes technical scare for Parfait Doll in the past two weeks. My hosting service was about to run out – and they had really gotten me steamed up by automatically charging my account for the next year’s fees. After two weeks of angrily shopping around, I decided it’d be more hassle than frugality to switch services. If you saw any updates or statuses talking about changing the domain name, this is why! While I still think about it from time to time, Parfaitdoll.com will still be the address to find this blog for the next year, until March 2013!
Now that that’s been all straightened out, I can get back to doing what I love to do: writing!
In the past week, my darling best friend Ellejay of Sherry and Cookies (where you can see lots of VIDEO of the past week!) came to stay and enjoy the freakishly warm weather we’ve bee having in New York City and Connecticut – just in time for spring break! Here we are in New York City last Saturday, me duckin’ with my lips. (It was an accident, I swear.)
In this photo, since many people have asked, I’m wearing the blonde Elizabeth wig from Arda Wigs. It was decent quality and fairly inexpensive, so check them out! (Also wearing: Dreamy Dollhouse from Angelic Pretty, ManiaQ hoodie, and my vintage DIY pink denim jacket!)
In the past week we… went antiquing (my county is known for its antiques), visited the beach one blustering afternoon, made Angelic Pretty “fakie” heart macarons, ate more Japanese food than is reasonably healthy (there would be photos of my first time eating pho, too, but I was so eager to eat it photos fell to the wayside!), and generally had fun dressing up together every day and swapping accessories back and forth. All the lolita clothes in my room made it look like a bomb hit!
Lauren came over and with our magical lolita powers we dressed her up in endless classic coordinates. Earlier in the week Dalin, Ellejay, Bianca and myself ended up in a Disney store castle, and for dinner out we went triplets in lavender.
Oh, and then we had some swordfights. In case you were wondering, Ellejay is the master of swordfights (though Lauren gave her a run for her money). In this case I really am more of a Rarity…
