I've recently come to a realization.
I really like to shop, lol.
I know, that's so typical, right? Girls liking to shop? Well, I never used to like shopping. Actually, I used to find it pretty pointless.
Anyway, why am I saying this? Well, since my last post, I've added a ton of pieces to my wardrobe. Seriously, as I was originally finishing this, a bunch of items I ordered on Ebay came in, and then when I finally finished adding those to this post, even *more* things arrived. And then I bought a lot of things.... Well finally, everything I've ordered has arrived, I've tried everything on, and I can finally talk about them.
So, let's continue, shall we?
As I said some time ago, I really needed accessories. I really needed accessories. Now, I decided to stay simple. Pearls! Pearls are absolutely classic, and certainly go with my style pretty much no matter what I plan to wear. Fortunately, the classic retro look is really in, so they had a whole section with their spring collection full of gorgeous gold and pearl accessories!

I bought so many, I had to buy a jewelry display case for them all! Fortunately, they had one at Icing.

Well, I wouldn't be showing them off if they didn't fit, right? They're fairly comfortable to walk around in too (though I have to learn to slow down and stop walking like I'm on a mission, lol). I still need to find a nice pair of flats though, but I just can't get a right idea of how I want them to look, just that I want some everyday shoes to wear.
The middle ones were bought recently. I got them from DollDelight's Storenvy page here (she also has them in black). They are a half size too small for me, but I actually knew that coming in. I'm hoping to get them stretched out a bit. Very cute and true to the images. They're also surprisingly light.
The final pair are from Target that I bought sometime in early January. They're pretty nice looking, but they hurt to wear when walking for long periods. I can pull them up for boots, or I can zip it down a bit and make it fur trimmed.

The sheer socks came from this shop. The quality is amazing, and since it came from California, it only took a couple of days to reach me. I'm thinking of buying some more. They probably look cream colored, but they're more of a pale yellow. The lace topped ones come from here. They're really soft and look super cute with my oxfords.
The stockings are from here, here, and here. I went a little crazy at the first shop, lol. Surprisingly, the stockings all fit great, and weren't too short for me at all! The dark beige leggings I got so I could wear them under my stockings on cooler days, so I can wear shorts and stockings even during the beginning of autumn. The color matches my legs pretty closely. The white stockings were a little short on me, so I have to stretch them a little. You can't tell when I'm wearing a dress, but I try to be careful since I don't want to break them. In the closeup, it looks like a fishnet style, but when it's worn, the lines disappear and only the dots show.
Surprise! I bought some wigs! Rikku did a review on a wig she bought from an Ebay shop, and at their low prices, I figured, why not give it a try? They're all in dark brown, which I've decided is part of my motif, lol. Other colors look really nice, but I just love the mood that dark hair brings. I just love being a brunette!
Of course, the fibers are shiny, however, the quality is quite good, and the wigs are pretty well made especially for the price. A few bits of hair came out from the bob, but nothing that caused any bald spots (and I used the pieces to test their heat resistance). It looks really sleek and nice. This one is my favorite wig.
The curly wig is pretty good. There isn't much to say about it, except that I've come to the conclusion that curly hair will always look a little messy once out of the bag, lol.
The full wig is the longest, far longer than I even expected. But it had a really terrible smell! I had to leave it out for a few days to air out. I didn't have this problem with the curly one, though the bob had a little bit of a plastic smell. Well, regardless of the smell, it's pretty cute! I have plans to style it a bit, since it's got such a nice texture and it's so full looking.

I now have a wardrobe that makes it impossible not to look good. Even if I fall back on a 'T-shirt and jeans' coordinate, my shirts and jeans are all so cute that it'll look like I tried. It's a really good feeling to see so much progress being made at once. I'm getting closer to that "Vintage Princess" look I've been striving for. To be honest, I thought it would take forever to get here!
I was planning on posting some coordinates using my new things, but I think this post has gone on long enough. Besides, now that I have some new things, I can come up with even more ideas, even including my older purchases! And now that I've posted everything I've got, I can finally start posting regular stuff again (I've been holding off so I wouldn't delay this post any longer).
