The Queen of Spades

Last year, I did a small series of outfits based on the suits of cards. There were matching Lolita and Ouji looks to represent the King and Queen of each suit.

This year, I decided to re-make them all because I knew I could do better.

I started with the Queen of Hearts, then did the King of Hearts.

This month it's the Spades!


In Tarot, the Spades represent Swords, and Air.

We used Stirling Castle as the location for the Spades videos.

LBC: One Dress in Classic, Sweet and Gothic Styles.

This weeks Lolita Blog Carnival topic is "Take A Dress And Coordinate It To Fit Gothic, Classic, & Sweet"
I chose Metamorphose Swan Border Coat Dress as my base for each of these co-ords.
At first, I considered using a skirt rather than a dress to make it easier to change the overall look, but then I thought I'd rather do the topic properly.

Also, the Classic Co-ord around this piece was already done for me since I wore this exact outfit last winter.

Classic Co-Ord

Cape: Alice and the Pirates
Dress: Metamorphose
Shoes: Milk
Umbrella Offbrand.

I knew straight away that I'd have the most trouble with the Sweet Co-ord, as I never wear that style and dont really own anything in that style. But I was determined to give it my best shot anyway.

This is maybe a slightly more classic or oldschool take on sweet lolita than what we would consider "sweet lolita" now. But it's the best I could do with my gothic wardrobe.

Sweet Co-Ord

Dress: Metamorphose
Headbow: BTSSB
Shoes: AnTaiNa
Umbrella: 7/11

The gothic co-ord I already had partially formed in my mind, as I planned to wear most of this together as an Ouji co-ord in the future.
Ivory and black is a slightly unusual combination but I think I like it.
