Anyone want to log onto poupee girl for me? My power is still out and I don't want to miss a dress up stamp. If you saw me post this on fb too, yes I am hopelessly addicted and desperate. DX

My life in a journal post nutshell [18 Nov 2010|02:23pm]
[ mood | sore ]

So in honor of actually seeing a lolita at my job today, I thought Id finally make an update on here. I also wouldnt mind an excuse to avoid homework some more.

So first off, I got a job! At Joann Fabrics for seasonal onto part time. I just finished my second week. Everyone there is really nice, dont see any problems getting along with anyone, customers are in much better moods than the ones at friendlys, and hopefully this will finally get me to start learning to sew. I get to take classes there for free! Plus employee discounts!

Second off, now that I have a job, we are likely finally going to move out of Nick's parent's house! We already found a nice, cheap duplex. We just need to send in the background check they require and hopefully we will get it. Nick finally started his internship on the ferries here in the engine room. This will end in january and then he has to go down to san diego for school for a month. This is the real reason we are getting an apartment so quickly because I refuse to say at his parent's house alone for a month. It might get tight until he starts working again but hopefully we will be good. There is no lease so if we have to leave, we dont have to worry about that.

It will suck being alone for a month but hopefully we will get to take the new kitten with us to keep me company. Our last cat, tanuki, got out almost a year ago and never came back. There are coyotes in the woods behind Nick's house so there wasnt much hope. I am still kinda pissy over how that happened. Randomly, the new puppy was found wandering around outside. Nick and I were already asleep and of course no one else thought to check if any other small animals got out. Anyway, so one of Nick's sisters found a kitten this summer and I sort of adopted it. Technically, I am the only one who recognizes that but cats dont have a very good history in Nick's family so they may decide we can take him.

And a random moment, I had this dream one night involving Poupee girl. I was going back and forth between poupee girl and the lj community. Im scrolling down the posts and see there is a new event out. When I go to look at it, I find out it is called...Singing Donkey! Unfortunately, my mind wasnt creative enough to make up a Singing Donkey collection. I think I just saw stuff from the Mysterious Event. It actually woke me up I think because I found it that ridiculous. 

Yea, I started using poupee girl a few months ago. I found a few of you but it looks like most dont play anymore. If you still do and I havent added you, go add me: pupe.ameba.jp/profile/K22bKjs_oPSM/

I think thats mostly it. Still going to school, still crocheting. I did start a blog to talk about my crochet work. I dunno if anyone would be interested in seeing it, it kinda sucks. And I update it just as badly as I have been here. DX

Planning [30 Jul 2010|05:51pm]
[ mood | lazy ]

 So what days are good for everyone to hang out and what would you like to do? I know I will probably have a trip over to Mitsuwa one day, another day in queens for purikura and maybe the rose tea house again, and one or more days in manhattan for alice's tea cup, macarons, time square, etc. Just need to know what days are good for everyone so I can make some official plans!

I return! In more ways than one! [09 Jul 2010|08:08pm]
[ mood | happy ]

The first is that I will try to hopefully, maybe return to LJ. I kinda stopped coming here maybe mid december or whenever my last post was I think. Need to clean up my friends page so it doesnt take half a day to get through all the new posts like it used to. ~_~  And really need to catch up with all that has been going on with everyone! 

The second is I will be making a trip back to NY in August! From aug 5th to aug 25 so 3 weeks! Does anyone have any meetups in the works yet? I need to start planning all the things I want to do while I am back which I will probably post about here. Right now all I know is I want to go to Alice's tea cup, mitsuwa, tokyo rebel (though I wont be able to buy anything im sure Y.Y), purikura probably, the usual. Could probably use some more ideas like if anything special will be going on in august?

Boot Advise [09 Dec 2009|10:58am]
[ mood | dirty ]

So I really want to get the Rose Boots from Bodyline! (not the one with fake roses)

I like the black ones best because of the contract with the rose so Im definitely getting that! But I could use white boots more. So Im trying to decide if I should get them in white also, or find a different pair of boots in white for variety? Cause I like variety! :]

Im also looking at the boot shorter boots if I dont get the white ones right now. But Im still not sure how well I can coordinate them. What color coordinates could you get away with brown boots with?

Bodyline Conclusion [06 Dec 2009|08:09am]
[ mood | groggy ]

So my dispute with Bodyline has come to a close, with me being SOL. D:

I opened my paypal dispute with them not long after my post on egl. They completely ignored it, so when I went to escalate it to a claim, paypal immediately closed it saying they do not cover this sort of dispute...FUCK. And of course this was the ONE time I used my paypal balance since I forgot paypal forces you to use that first and I wanted to get my order in ASAP in case bodyline didnt extend their free shipping deal (which they did of course). Meaning I cant get my money back through my bank. *SIGH*

So Im probably gonna see about having someone fix it for me. Might bring it around to some local tailors and see how much they charge. Or ship it out to someone. talia_speaks already contacted me offering to do it for $25 plus shipping probably. Anyone recommend someone else? Or what about any of you talented girls? :D

On a completely unrelated note, I now have a new saying. Strangely, it came from a sci fi show Nick's been watching (Farscape). Instead of, what the fuck, it is now what the FRILL. Yes, this came from a sci fi show and I have no idea why. XD

School - The end is Nigh/Halloween [19 Nov 2009|05:57pm]
[ mood | bored ]

So me and school aren't getting along too well right now. Im probably gonna fail one of my classes and I got some project due dates coming up fast on me. There's only 2 weeks of school left for me.

Other than that, I wanted to finally post some stuff from halloween:

Mouse and ghost make merry on this last of dear October’s days.Collapse )

[ mood | curious ]

So I was just looking through the old Laforet fashion show pictures and it accured to me. Those models probably have like size 9/10 + feet on average. Yet they are still wearing brand shoes. That must mean AP and the like should easily be able to make bigger sizes, unlike rose chocolat who got into all sorts of trouble when they tried to get bigger sizes.

I guess they could argue that it wouldnt be profitable but if they already have the molds that negates that argument right? All they would have to do is when they make the shoes for the show, churn out a few extra pairs and through them on the site. The LL tea party shoes are all sold out so they shouldnt be worrying about them selling. So Im wondering what is still holding them back?

Ok, I just had another thought. I wonder if they might all base which models they pick on what their shoe size is, so they arent making new shoes? I dunno how common it is for a runway model to have size 8 feet though?

Damn you Bodyline! [04 Nov 2009|04:26pm]
[ mood | angry ]

Something is WRONG with BODYLINE! HOW do you send out a dress with the print UPSIDE DOWN!!!!! UGGGH XC

Im gonna be even more upset if they make me send it back cause I just find that so annoying, making me waste my time and gas to drive to the post office for THEIR mistake! Im not even gonna start if they won't even send me a new dress...

So I know I am way past due for an update but Im too upset/tired to try to write anything now and I needed to share.

FYI: It's this dress if anyone was wondering. In black.

*jackie chan old man voice* One more thing! [05 Sep 2009|11:37pm]
[ mood | anxious ]

Just wanted to note:

Please have cash for alice's at least! I dont want to have to bother them with split checks or stuff like that. Possibly cash for whatever else we end up doing too since I dont know who takes cards or not.

Also if you'd like my number just leave a comment, and I'll PM you!

SEE YOU TOMORROW

More of Alice's [05 Sep 2009|04:09am]
[ mood | contemplative ]

So Im trying to come up with some idea's for what to do after Alice's.

I saw that The Frick Collection was not far from where we will be and remembered someone had posted about it (but I cant find the entry anymore). So unless whoever that was wants to save the place for a separate meet up, we could go over there. Admission is $18 for adults, $5 for students with ID.

We could also go over to central park. The weather is supposed to be nice, not too hot, no rain. I have never been to the central park zoo so I though that might be nice. (If anyone who has been to the zoo thinks otherwise about it, warnings are welcomed!) Admission is $10. We could also stop by the carousel!

Some simpler stops could be Dylan's Candy Bar, Pylons, Crumbs..if we want to venture down to 42nd we can go to Kino's and Sanrio. I just stopped into Laila Rowe down there and there are a bunch of nice pearl like/bead necklaces and bracelets. And some really great plaid rose headbands! 30% off of everything too, though I dunno if that will still be going on sunday.  

Maaayyybe Serendipity3 too???

ALSO I GOT A FEW CANCELLATIONS SO NOT MORE $30 CHARGE :DDD

Reservation is for 12:30 so we will be meeting at Pylons across lexington from Alice's between 12 and 12:30.

ALICE RESERVATION PROBLEMS [03 Sep 2009|02:10pm]
[ mood | aggravated ]

 So for those who saw, the reservationist did call me today...but gave me some bad news.

 
She said the only times available would be 10:30am and 5:30pm.(see edit!) And that anymore than 11 people would limit us to the tea sets (ie the mad hatter).
 
So I NEED EVERYONE to message me saying you will definitely be coming. And if you are ok with one of these times and the menu limit. The other option would be finding a different place to eat...

PLZZZZ REPLY ASAP!!!!!!!!

I want to call back the lady today and she's supposed to leave at 6!

x-posted via facebook message XD

EDIT: Ok, so I called back cause I couldnt wait any longer (heh), and suddenly I could get a 12:30 reservation. Maybe cause I told her 14 this time? So thats what our reservation is. And I didnt understand at first but its a set PRICE for 14 people, which is $30...HOWEVER I have till tomorrow evening to change the number before I get charged ahead of time for it all! So if it's below 11, no charge and full menu available!

I NEEDZ CONFIRMATIONS!!!!

Alice's and Mitsuwa [02 Sep 2009|08:53pm]
[ mood | blah ]

 I think Im having problems again with the reservation of Alice's... >__< 

I called on monday but as usual the reservationist was not there. However whoever answered the phone took down all the information for me and said I would get a call back from them by tuesday confirming everything. But of course no word from who im starting to believe is some made up entity. I called again today and again the person was not there (granted I did call right before closing so she had already left). Whoever answered this time found that my info was still there in their papers so no idea why I didnt get a call. Let's see what happens tomorrow. 

For those who where interested in coming to Mitsuwa, would next friday work/be better for you? See, Nick figured out he can come down then and was wanting to go to mitsuwa. So instead of making two trips over, I thought it might work to combine the two. And I wouldnt have to take the bus.  So if we had it next week, we can meet up around 1. If this week, probably more like 2 since I have more travel time. We can eat a late-ish lunch then, look around for a bit, then get dessert at the cafe place!

What do you think??

Fashion's Night Out [02 Sep 2009|01:56am]
[ mood | hungry ]

Who wants to go shopping??

http://fashionsnightout.com/timeline.php

I havent look through all the stores yet but I saw LA MAISON DU CHOCOLAT will be giving free chocolate samples! There are cocktails, prizes, and makeovers at every other store it seems (wish they said if those are free or not...) Free styling at bumble and bumble. Miss J from ANTM is gonna be at H&M giving runway lessons! XD And Juicy Couture will have TUXEDOED WAITERS ON SKATEBOARDS. They picked a weird day for this though I know. ~.~

This sounds like a classy event but no way you can wear heels and get all over manhattan like this!

Copypasta from Katy - Rose House Meet up [25 Aug 2009|04:57pm]
[ mood | excited ]

 Sorry for taking forever; I couldn't think of anything for the Rose House meet up. Everything that we can possibly do in NYC for lolita meets, we've pretty much done all of them. The entire meet is pretty much going to take place in Flushing, as it's the most cost effective choice. I just spoke to Morgan about it, and she agrees. Flushing boasts a bunch of little Korean boutiques that have tons of loliable clothing.

Anyways, this is the plan:

DATE: Friday August 28th

12:30 - 12:45 PM: Meet up.
12:45 - 3:50 PM: Purikura and window shopping around Flushing.
3:50 - 7:30 PM: Rose House

Directions: Take the 7 train all the way to Flushing, the last stop.
Meeting Location: There are five separate exits from which to come out from. Once you get off the train, don't take the exit that's right next to the subway platform. That one leads to a different location. Instead, go up the stairs along the center of the platform, come out through the turnstiles, and finally, exit from any of the four exits located within the station. You'll be at an intersection (Main Street and Roosevelt Ave.). You'll notice a Duane Reade pharmacy on one of the corners. Wait for everybody inside.

However, the other alternative is meeting at Kinokuniya and then, taking the subway to Flushing. Which would you prefer?

Facebook Event [12 Aug 2009|11:35pm]
[ mood | confused ]

 Does anyone happen to know a Nicole Lynch on facebook? This girl just added herself to my event but I cant view her profile and she doesnt come up in a search for some reason. It seems I had the event as open by mistake. :/ Im about to delete her anyway but Im curious why she would add herself?
