My third QutieLand order

Making times on QutieLand are often very long and this time wasn't an exception.
I placed the order before Christmas but I didn't receive the items until late May.

Clicking on stock photos will take you to the items on QutieLand's website
 and the photos that I have taken will take you to the full reviews of the items.

I didn't plan on ordering anything but when I saw this Infanta dress I started planning an order.

Along with Infanta's Rose Cathedral OP, I got Dream of Lolita's Kitten Embroidery JSK,
which I had been eyeing ever since I first visited the website.

Lastly, I decided that I should buy a proper petticoat since I never seem to get any of my sewing projects finished. I was torn between different Classical Puppets petticoats for a few weeks but I figured that the "Daily A-Shape" would be the most practical one and I could always wear another petticoat with it if a skirt needed more volume.

Originally, I was supposed to fly to Ireland tomorrow but I changed the flight to next week's Friday so I'll have time to write reviews before I leave Finland. My next blog post, on the other hand, is going to be written in Ireland. It might take a while until I get internet, so I don't know when I'll be able to write but I hope it won't take as long as it took to publish the previous post. :)

Preparing for a new chapter & Outfit Post #22

Summer is gone and I have too much to post about. I had planned on doing so much more this summer but all of my plans were ruined. After my trip I had to think it all over and forget about writing for a while. At several occasions I tried to make myself write something  but I didn't want to act as if nothing had happened but I didn't want to explain yet either. If you want to know the reason I haven't been posting, I have already mentioned it here.

The trip to Britain was a success but now I find it too late to post about it, and I feel like it's something I should post about on my other blog because I have decided that from now on this blog will be entirely about clothes and other cute things. I will begin to write about my life in general in "Project Ireland" instead.

Now to start the new chapter in the life of my blog,
I have a few outfits I have been meaning to show you.

Firstly, I bought my first "normal" dress in 10 years.
The tights I found on my trip to Britain.  :)
Dress: Seppälä
Tights: Primark
Shoes: H&M

The second outfit I built around my newest Bodyline shirt.
Headband: Bodyline (ACC1197)
Shirt: Bodyline (L536)
Skirt: Bodyline (L368)
Socks: Bodyline (socks373)
Shoes: Bodyline (shoes178)

And thirdly, I quickly matched some pieces together for grocery shopping.
Necklace: Bodyline
Skirt: Bodyline (L303)
Shoes: Bodyline

After a little over two weeks I will be in Ireland. I cannot take all of my clothes with me in a suitcase, which means that I will have to buy new pieces in order to wear lolita, before I get everything sent as cargo on Christmas holiday. I will take as many photos as possible before leaving, so that I can still write reviews on  some of the items I need to leave behind.
