Socks & reviews

For a tall girl with muscular legs it's sometimes hard to find nice socks to fit into. Luckily there are shops like Bodyline that sell socks at a more affordable price so I won't feel too bad if a pair of socks turns out to be a misfit.
I have actually ordered quite a few socks from Bodyline.
Today I was finally motivated enough to take some pictures and write a little about them.
You can find the pictures through the reviews section or just click here.
Worn photos will follow later. :)
I have also written a review on my pink DoL cutsew.

New Camera

Last month I got a new camera: Canon EOS 1100D. It's a lot better than my old Panasonic. I took pictures to show you how much better it exactly is.

Canon EOS 1100D

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS30

Bad lighting has always been a problem of mine but now I can take decent pictures even at night. For example here is a picture I took a couple weeks ago with my new camera.
And here's a picture of a rabbit on the parking lot taken with my old camera.
I don't understand why I still have this on my computer...

Another thing I love about the new camera is that I can choose what I want to zoom into.

I'm not good at writing so I'll just leave this close-up of the rose here.

All the pictures have been taken with the 18-55mm lens that came with the camera.

Shopping & Outfit Post #10

Last Saturday I went shopping in sweet lolita. I had taken a picture of the outfit at home with my camera but it was so blurry that I had to take another one with my phone when I found a mirror.
Headbow: BtSSB
Dress: DoL
Blouse: H&M
Socks: Bodyline
Shoes: Bodyline

The phone is actually new. My old phone hadn't worked well for quite a while and I had wanted to get a phone with a full keyboard for a long time so when I saw this on sale I couldn't resist buying it. It's Sony Ericsson's Xperia mini pro.

I found a pair of boots from the local shoe store and I decided to make an outfit around them for the Helsinki Book Fair I'm attending this Friday.
Vest: Dear Celine
Blouse: F+F
Necklace: F+F
Skirt: F+F
Boots: Tamaris

Here's a better picture of the boots.
They weren't inexpensive but I love them and they are perfect for lolita.

And here's what I've been thinking to do with my hair.
Rose: Bodyline
Headdress and lace around rose: F+F

P.S I sent email to QutieLand again because the tracking site still wasn't working and I got an answer that the site is under emergency maintenance due to China's National Day holiday. I've never had to go through so much trouble to get a pair of socks but I'm happy as long as I will get them. :)

Lolita Blog Carnival & other news

I have joined the Lolita Blog Carnival. I'm not good at explaining what it is so here's what F Yeah Lolita has written about it:
"it's a group of bloggers who all decide on a common topic to all blog about on the same day and then they follow up their post with a link to all the other blogger's posts about the topic. It's a great way to get involved with other Lolibloggers, get some blogging inspiration, and to promote some great blogs!"
You can get to LBC's facebook page through the icon on the right sidebar.

I sent email to QutieLand after I had posted last week and today I got an answer saying that my socks have already been sent. The tracking number in the message doesn't work but I suppose it's just going to take a while until it has been registered.

I've also tried to make the reviews page a bit more reader-friendly and I changed the blogs name from "Shizukaine de Revaillance" to "The Silent Revival".

I'm sorry for disappearing suddenly but I've been busy preparing for exams. Now that the exam week is over I can start posting again. So, here's an outfit I made with my new JSK.
Headbow: BtSSB
Necklace: Bodyline
Dress: DoL
Cutsew: DoL
Everything else: off brand

P.S Haven't heard from QutieLand about the socks yet...

Things are starting to look better.

My petticoat is still a work in progress but I managed to arrange some time to write a review about my new AP replica JSK. I'll add pictures of the matching headbow and write a review about another headband I ordered with the dress later.

Last week I got an email from QutieLand saying that they are sorry for their mistake and will send me another pair of socks shortly. Yay!

I've also been planning the outfit I'm going to wear for my "penkkarit". I was thinking about wearing hime lolita but I'm afraid the clothes would get dirty so I might choose to wear kodona instead. I'm not even sure if I'm going to attend it since I'm not really interested in that kind of events but I will if my friends really want me to.

Back again with Outfit Post #8

I had to skip two posts because school started and there's just been so much going on since it's already my last year of upper secondary school (or senior high). I'm really nervous about the matriculation examination because I have "only" 20 weeks to prepare for the exams.

All of my friends are very calm and saying that there's still plenty of time to study but if you really think about it I'm going to have 6 exams and I have about 5 books to study for each subject which means that I should read at least two books per week (and try to remember everything) to have enough time to read the important chapters again before the exams. And of course I have to go to school and do my homework too.

It's not just school that's draining my energy but also the things I wasn't able to do before school started. For example I don't have pretty much any clothes 'cause most of my clothes are lolita and I still don't have a good petticoat. That's also one of the reasons I haven't posted here.

I'll try to start posting again so here's an outfit I wore on the first school day.
Socks: Bodyline
Shoes: Antaina
Everything else: off brand

Oh, and I got the order I talked about here.
I had ordered a pair of socks and I've written a review about them.
I didn't have much to write since they weren't the colour I had ordered. :(

Outfit post #4

Summer holiday always makes me really lazy but now that I've relaxed for over a week I'll try to post at least every other week.

Here's an outfit I wore on the last day of school.
Skirt, socks: Bodyline
Shoes: BtSSB
Everything else: off brand
I also wore my pink BtSSB headbow which can be seen in the first outfit post. 

I have ordered the jsk I talked about in the previous post and decided to order a pair of matching shoes and some accessories too.

Oh, and I got a bear necklace to decorate my bass with. :)

Outfit post #3

I was going to post yesterday but it's exam week so I had to study. Luckily I don't have any exam tomorrow so I was able to post today.

My petticoats are still in progress so this is the only dress I can wear at the moment.
Head accessory: F+F
Dress: Hell Bunny
Shoes: Bodyline
Everything else: off brand

I'm planning to order more clothes after the exam week.
I was thinking about getting this dress in yellow.

Another outfit post

I've been wearing fairy kei lately (or at least trying to) because my petticoats are completely flat. I should really do something about it but I've decided to rearrange my furniture so it'll have to wait.
Anyway, here's an outfit from last week:
Shirt, skirt, socks and shoes: Bodyline
Everything else: off brand

A New Beginning

I decided to start writing my blog all over again because I haven't had as much time to write as I would've wanted to. So, welcome to my renewed blog!
