10 signs of autumn, the lolita version

1. Closet child will publish its coats page along with the brand collections of coats.

2. One will find it is incredibly important to read Kamikaze girls again. (And thusly becomes inspired to wear old school coordinates)

3. Muted colours become all the rage once more.

4. Parasols magically turn into umbrellas. 

5. Suddenly everyone is wearing ankle booties. And cardigans or knits. With fur collars to look more cuddly and warm. 

6. Alice and the pirates releases the annual Halloween print declaring  the halloween season open. Everyone will buy a massive lace adorned witch hat.  

7. Summer sales are over. And the wait for the next lucky bag season begins. 

8. Florals will slowly disappear from the print circuit and get replaced by plaid, crowns, teddy bears, books or chocolate. 

9. The hunt for the perfect pair of gloves will begin.

10. Someone will try to host the last summer picnic. Sun decides to shine as during summer when ever there has been a picnic it has been raining. 

What signs of autumn have you, my dear readers seen lately? Feel free to add to my list in the comments or make your own!

Simple Houndstooth dress.

Recently I finished this simple jumperskirt. I wanted something almost ETC-like or Chanelish and decided not to add lace or frills. Just a really nicely cut dress from a cute fabric. I chose a patter with a really small sweet heart neckline and a seam at the waist and a pleated hem.

I really love this pattern. It's so cute and so elegant at the same time. 

Pleats are so pretty.

Lolita blog carnival: The picture that made me fall in love with lolita

So this was it. That dress is still my ultimate dream dress and that elegance still enchants me. I was interested in lolita before I saw this picture but this one sealed the deal, killed the old me and allowed the new on to be born.

Witching hour

When Tiia visited last saturday she brought her doll Susie with her to meet with my Héloise. Naturally we took a whole bunch of photos of the girls.
