The Drip Diamond Necklace

People don't realize the extent of my collection...

Yes, I own this--

You must know that when it comes to me and jewelry, I want the kind that royalty would wear O.O Really fancy, elaborate, neck covering pieces XD

A couple years ago, I went to the San Diego Comic Convention and there was a booth filled with the most stunning jewelry *0*

Oh I wanted one~

The one I wanted was actually different from this, bigger, gaudier, and of course, more expensive x.x

I still wanted to have one o.o So I settled on this piece. It was the most expensive piece of jewelry I had ever bought, and the first time I had ever accomplished finding and procuring the kind that I like :D

Of course you must note that this was put on credit--which I am now trying to get myself out of x(

I don't remember the exact cost, and I wish I still had the receipt :/ But I know it was well over $100 if not close to $200 @_@ But I could be exaggerating at $200. Which is why I really wish I remembered what it cost and that I had kept the receipt :(

I am now actually thinking to sell this piece...

Thinking over my situation and my goals, I really can't keep any of these things anymore :( In all fairness, I bought them when I didn't have the money to pay for them--I put it all on credit. And to get myself out, I reasonably have to sell back the things I bought.

The positive to this that makes me feel a bit better is now someone else gets to find joy from my collection :3 Most of them I don't get to use often, so they don't get to be fully appreciated...

Not So Pretty Anymore...

I received my dress today...

My first Angelic Pretty dress~

It's beautiful and I love it, but my joy for its beauty is shadowed by some ugliness and darkness of the day (._.)

We, (my local Lolita community), often discuss our fears and scary stories of what part of the Lolita community can be like here in the US--and I've gotten my first taste of it at the start of my morning (>w<) I tried very hard to keep it from getting to me, that I had more important priorities to attend to, that I couldn't let these thoughts and feelings affect me during my first week of school, but I had already been having a shit week, so it just piled on top and I can't wait for the weekend to hide away from the world (>_>) I've had my fill of people for one week~

Because of this taste of ugliness, it makes me have less of an appreciation for Lolita fashion... (._.) Which makes me sad I can't admire my dress simply for my own personal love for the fashion. I forgot that there is a difference between people who love fashion and people who only love a fashion. And this is not a topic that is openly discussed in a fashion specific community.

I don't know why I even have a blog now, one that is open to the public; I'm not a journalist who wants the criticism and can take the comment bashing on what I felt like saying just to express it :/

Which is why I tend to go on hibernation a lot and keep to myself. Because even though they say, "You learn more about yourself through people", I actually keep to myself because I don't want people to change what I already feel and know I like.

I'll have to post on my dress another time. Not in this post where it is tainted with sadness (>.>)

Ghasp! :O

This shit is beautiful D:

I love "gradi-ated" things XD Uhh~ and lavender to purple~violet x3 so deliciously striking.

I've wanted to do gradients to clothing but never got around to it, as many of my other ideas and projects (>.>) Beautiful things are made with a gradient :D

Must do this for a petticoat :3
