Halloween meet up 2015 /// Trick or Treat, ye Landlubbers!

What it is this, two entries within such a short time of each other?
Is it a miracle?
No! It's the magic of the night of nights, All Hallow's Eve!

Okay, enough cheesy blabla. It would probably be more appropriate if I got my pirate speak on, because THIS IS HALLOWEEN *sing* and this year, I dressed up as a pirate! :D We went to a Halloween meet up organized by Lea - we, that is, my boyfriend and me! Yes, you read that right! I finally convinced my boyfriend to tag along to such an event ! He had already met a few people from the community earlier this year at Lea's birthday party, and also, since it's Halloween, it was not very hard to get him to dress up and wear "fancy" clothes in public :3 

I love this photo! So much awesomeness, so many great costumes ♥

Metamorphose Tea Party 2015 - The princess and the witch

Hello, long time no see!

I wanted to post this much, much sooner but I am super busy - graduate school has started, we have homework, I have three projects that I need to finish before December and my thesis is still nor written and defended (meaning I'm still BSc and not MSc. Fortunately it does not matter for grad school, but still, I'd like to get this done before the end of the year!).

So, all lame excuses aside, of course I'm very excited and happy to write a blog post about the Metamorphose Tea Party in Vienna, which took place on the 17th October.
The first big surprise came for me a few weeks before the event, when I found out that I was chosen to be a model for the fashion show! I had only modeled once before and when I sent my application in summer, I wasn't really expecting much. To be so lucky twice in a row? I was really surprised, and very, very happy.

It was also kinda ironic, because I had waited to get a dress for my own outfit for a long time, because I thought if I get picked as a model, I will plan a more simple outfit to make the outfit changes easier. Sure enough, after I had bought a dress on lacemarket in September, I found out I would get to be a model shortly afterwards, haha! But everything turned out fine in the end.

Picture my Day #19

Picture my Day #19 took place this week on Sep 1st, and as usual I almost forgot about it until I saw someone else post a picture with the familiar #pmdd19, haha!

So better late than never, here's a short visual summary of my day... I didn't do anything special, because I'm on vacation this week. It was supposed to be some time for relaxing and mentally preparing for my upcoming PhD, but it didn't really work out as expected because every day, there was something else already planned... Tuesday was the only day where I didn't "have" to do anything in particular, so I was quite lazy in the end ^^

What would a #pmdd be without the obligatory first post-midnight photo?

Sponsored review:

Hey guys, long time no "see"!

As in... it's been a while since I showed my face i.e. outfits or make up here. It's mainly because I have so little occasions to dress up. And then, there was this horrible heat wave that came over Austria - we had almost 40°C for days and minimum 25°C at night, so it was super hot even inside my apartment D:

Anyways - a while ago I was approached by and asked to introduce their shop to my readers! So I picked some clothers that immediately caught my eye! It took me a while till I could get the review done, though, because of the heat x_x And also, because of work... but I'm on vacation this week, so I had time to dress up for fun a bit :3

I'm so in love with this outfit, I can't wait for autumn to wear it somewhere! This time, I only dressed up inside to take some photos because 35°C are way too warm for fake lather leggings v_v but it's supposed to get colder soon, yay!

"Atheist Lolita"...?

Okay, so this entry might ruffle some petticoats and as a disclaimer, I'd first of all like to point out that I do not mean to offend anyone or their religious feelings here. I just though about this topic for a while now, so I thought I'd write a few words about my opinion!
If you have very strong feelings about your religion/belief you might not want to read this, but if you are feeling open for a discussion I'd be happy if you leave me a comment with your opinion!

Now that this is out of the way, let's start with a proper introduction.
In the last few weeks I've come across several articles online which describe "Muslim Lolita" as a new fashion trend. Mostly shared by Lolita friends on facebook or twitter, I was surprised to see the media catch up on this topic now, after all to my knowledge these girls have been around for quite some time. First of all, I have to say that all of the images I have seen so far of Alyssa and Noor, the two girls who seem to have pioneered this "style", look really really great and I think the do a great job incorporating their hijab into their coords. However, it makes me wonder if the simple fact that these girls are muslim and wear a hijab to their coords is really sufficient to call this an entirely new "fashion trend", or even a substyle.
