I recently cleaned out my closet of unwanted collectibles. To my astonishment, I was able to purchase my third Obitsu doll! After some careful consideration, I decided to shell one of my darker characters, Lilith. After I settled on the 45 cm size, I made my way online to complete my purchase!
**Warning: This blog post will contain artistic appreciation of the doll's form aka doll nudity.
My recent wardrobe addition of Sweet Cherry Deer by Souffle Song was automatically my costume inspiration this year. Since the internet poll I had hosted selected Little Red Riding Hood at the clear favorite, I set to work on the overall look. My Halloween Lolita coordinate rundown is as follows:
✓ Sweet Cherry Deer Jumperskirt by Souffle Song
✓ Short Ruffled Ridinghood Style Cape by TeaandTreadle
✓ Blouse by Bunny House
✓ Shoes from Bodyline
✓ Wig from Bodyline
✓ Hair accessory from Sweet Dreamer
✓ Other accessories are off-brand
Between our company Halloween party, a Stranger Things marathon and handing out candy to trick-or-treaters, it was one of the best Halloween says yet. I hope you had a fantastic Halloween too!
The Lolita fashion item that I have wanted for the longest is the Ribbon Heart Bag by Baby, the Stars Shine Bright. This is an item that has existed for many of the years that I have been interested in Lolita fashion. This bag, to me, is a timeless addition to a Lolita wardrobe. It's simple heart shape, laced edges, ribbon and elegantly sculpted handles give me such a wave of cute coordinate inspiration and nostalgia. While I would love this bag in any color, the white colorway is my first choice for sure!
There really isn't an excuse for not buying this piece aside from one thing: wardrobe expansion. In my desire to build my wardrobe with all of the necessary Lolita essentials, I have delayed adding this particular item to my collection. Realistically, I still need a few more essentials, such as petticoats, blouses, skirts, dresses and basic bags before I add another adorable shaped purse to my collection. Thankfully, it does not appear that this popular and iconic bag will be discontinued anytime soon!
What Lolita item have you neglected to add to your collection? I would love to hear your answers!
I recently purchased a ruffled short hood for my Little Red Riding Hood costume this year. I purchased the cape from TeaandTreadleShop on Etsy. This Canadian Etsy shop sells handmade Lolita items, as well as sewing patterns for you to make your own Lolita clothes. I purchased the Short Ruffled Ridinghood Style Cape with Hood & Ribbon Tie in the vibrant cherry red to accompany my latest dress from SouffleSong. The shop owner, Carole, surprised me not one, but two capes! With such a generous action, I just had to pay it forward! This cape is a fantastic Autumn giveaway prize!
The cape is extremely well constructed. Each ruffle has been expertly crafted and helps the piece maintain an adorable charm. The material is light but perfect for the chilled Autumn weather. The hood fits over my Lolita layers extremely well, and it is the perfect color to match the cherries within the pattern of my dress. I absolutely love my cape, and I can't wait to give one to the lucky winner!

Short Ruffled Ridinghood Style Cape with Hood & Ribbon Tie
