Blast from the Past: Brittany's Old Lolita Things

I thought I'd start out with something from my past... very embarrassing at times, but just too fun not to share anyway...

Well, about a few years ago, 2007 to be exact, I thought it would be great if I made my own lolita items. So, I chose to make rectangle headdresses from scratch. I thought it would be easy, yet I knew nothing about the basics of sewing. I had hand sewn these two (and eventually, several others) 'headresses' using just one piece of fabric, the wrong types of lace (also wrongly placed) and some satin ribbons, which weren't long enough to be tied successfully under my chin. But for some reason, I thought it was right, and I ended up liking them, not really noticing just what I've done. Ha ha ha.

Several months later, I found out just how horrible they were, and tossed them all out. I vowed to study more on the fashion and sewing together. So that I could make something correctly, and that looks nice. (I also had made some pieces of jewelry, but I'll save those for another post.)

Welcome to my new blog!

Hello! My name is Brittany, and this is a blog about my love for the lolita fashion and 'lifestyle'! I hope to post a lot of fun things here, about the life of a lolita, share my thoughts and learnings about the fashion I have gathered throughout the years and experiences. I also hope to take part in lolita events, travel, and lots of other things!
Why "Hey you, Cinderella!"?I chose this as a title, because I heard many stories of how 'mundanes' or normal civilians on the street see a lolita, and had called out to her about her attire. Usually something along the lines of, "Is that a cosume?" "It's not Halloween yet!" and "Get lost on the way to the runway?"
So I figured it would be a nice title! Because I know for sure that I will get picked at, and made fun of... BUT! That doesn't mean a thing, as long as I am happy with what I am wearing. I don't let them ruin my fun! Besides, they're right... I AM a fairy tale princess! Well, at least I dress like one. Hee hee.
What will we see here?
Lots of pictures of course! Daily outfits, Lolita events, crafts and jewelry, and maybe some tutorials, too. Also, essays and thoughts about the fashion, as well as tips that were passed to me, that I pass to you! I probably would put recipes up here if I didn't suck at cooking! xD But we'll see!
I hope you all will enjoy reading "Hey you, Cinderella" and here's to a good start!
