Dedicated to the Dolly Kei fashion.

Ichibancon day 0 and day 1.

So this weekend is Ichibancon. On Thursday they did the Otaku Flea Market. Space was packed so we were crammed into a corner for most of the time. Did ok there but hoping that my lolita pieces sell at the 2nd flea market Sunday.
On Friday I wore a dolly kei coord using my Bodyline jsk and my Meta off white LP skirt. Everything else is vintage and off brand. I wore this particular outfit for the Japanese street fashion show. Also I am selling in the artist alley with my helper the Guinea pig.

Dolly Kei Friday. This style will be a challenge come warmer days because it basically thrives on layering…but challenge accepted #ootd #dollykei #grimoire #asianstyle #japanstyle #asianfriends by Vixie Vaporous on Flickr.
