Greetings my readers! You must be pretty upset at me by now. What is up with this girl? No posts for about a month with NO EXPLANATIONS? Well, I must say that I have not always been the best blogger. My posts are infrequent and sporadic. I truly am sorry, because I really like to post, too! However, just when you thought I couldn't let you down anymore, here I am to disappoint you again... or maybe I'm just being dramatic as I'm only reaching out to a few people (who are my followers). If those of you who don't know me in person haven't guessed my age yet, I'll just spill the beans. I tried to go incognito, but as my face is all over this blog, the original "let's be the mystery woman" idea failed... ^^;; I am a high school senior, with many things on my plate. I am interning at a laboratory, trying to get my college applications done, have a minimum of 4 hours of homework a night, running 2 school community service clubs, studying for the SAT, and trying to earn my driver's license before my permit expires. I'm an otaku and proud of it, and watch anime during my small slivers of free time to keep myself at least partially sane. So, until at least December, do not expect posts on this blog... at all. :'( This saddens me, too, but I do not think that I have the time. However, the good news is that when I finally am free from the last semester of hell (in my high school career, at least), I am planning on giving Unconventional Chameleon a makeover. Instead of using blogger (unless you're incredibly famous, it's difficult to gain a wide audience on Blogger, let's be honest here). I'm planning on transferring to Tumblr instead! Don't worry, I'll post a link to the new Tumblr page in case someone stumbles across the blog on Blogger and is interested in reading more. I'll try to make my posts sound better (my writing isn't as great as it could be on this blog, I know), make the background more lolita-esque (the bright tie-dye background fit with my insane, LET'S START A RIOT!, angsty, screw the mainstream clothing that I used to wear a year ago, but I have since then fallen in love with Lolita), and focus more on Lolita in the future. I'll also be writing more about Sherlock Holmes because, let's face it, the Victorian Era and Lolita go hand in hand, and the original Conan Doyle Sherlock is my idol and god. I'll probably be writing more about anime, too, and especially about the fashion in anime that is related a lot to Lolita (Pandora Hearts, anyone? ;D). I'm sorry to keep you guys waiting for a few months, but I hope to make the new blog better, and hopefully gain more followers. I'll be hitting the books for the next couple of months (dark under-eye circles and bloodshot eyes, we meet again). Expect to hear from me when I come out from the darkness and (hopefully) not any less sane than I used to be (which actually is not saying much) xD Ciao!

G'day (or g'night) my dear readers, :) I wanted to provide a post of my attempt at an gothic lolita/steampunk co-ord. I think it turned out quite well, but please let me know of what you think! I am open to suggestions and advice. http://lolita-handbook.livejournal.com/3035.html. This is also a great source: http://hellolace.net/styles/. Adding Gothic Lolita pieces to my wardrobe is definitely at the top of my shopping list, and I think that my "new" purse will work beautifully! Keep on creating new pieces of art, my readers, and don't be afraid to go outside of the box! <3

I have noticed that now that I have been exposed to Lolita and I have worn it a few times, I want to wear it all the time! I want to take every opportunity to wear lolita... and I don't think that it will be "a phase"... for a while, I think that I will wear lolita each time I have time to "dress up" a little. :) It makes me feel very special, and I have noticed that my love for dressing my dolls up (that I had when I was little) has transformed into a love for dressing myself. I met with a family friend recently, and she saw my lolita blouse from fanplusfriend. She called it "a work of art"! That made me feel very happy and excited because I feel that lolita is bringing me further into my goal of making what I wear into a form of art! Sorry that this post has a lot of "stream of consciousness". I hope that you like my outfit, though:
Hi guys, I ordered a lolita skirt from fanplusfriend, and I must say that it is very beautiful! I wanted to write a short review here in case anyone was interested. It is very pretty and very good quality! I'm very happy with it! The fabric is a bit thick, though, so if you live in an incredibly warm place, you might not want to wear it now (in the summer), but since it's a skirt, it's bearable. :) The only downside is that I had to wait a few days longer (than expected) to receive it because they took some time making the bow brooch/hair clip that comes with the skirt. When I asked them (after telling them I ordered "a week ago"), they answered quickly though (and it was just me being impatient ^^;;).
I hope I helped anyone who was planning on buying the skirt! :)
I apologize for the very sad lack of posts! I have had two issues: 1. I have been very busy, as I just took on two internships this summer. 2. My computer literally started falling apart (the wires that connect the display screen of my laptop to the keyboard got loose and the computer screen cannot stand on its own...). So, yes, I am quite stressed. However, I have an outfit that I threw together to show you:

When I saw this shirt, I immediately became transfixed. Since I was young, I have always been enchanted by dark fairies. I imagine them wearing dark eye-makeup and having a clothing palette of dark blue, deep violet, and black. They have a refined elegance, and their stoic nature makes them so mysterious! I can imagine a dark fairy wearing a shirt like this, or lying down in a field of flowers that have a similar color palette as this shirt does. I kept on looking towards it, and my mother got it for me as a birthday present! :D :D Oh, now that I am an admirer of dark fairies, I suppose I should enter more into my character and be more like :1 haha. A dark fairy would, of course, wear this shirt with a bell shaped dark skirt, but there was a high likelihood that I would need to sit down on the ground that day, so khakis it was! :) Also, my father was very generous and bought me a BEAUTIFUL Swarovski bracelet for my present. The crystals are enchanting and I love it! Now, for the story about the ring. My class had our ring ceremony this year (code name for: we got our class rings). I thought that the design for our class ring (from the school) was quite disappointing, and as my friend deemed it: "fugly"... Thus, my closest friend and I decided to get our rings together! :D I suggest that you, too, my readers, get your class rings with your best buddy, also, because every time I wear the ring, I am reminded of all the happy memories that I have with my friend and all of the funny jokes that we shared! :) ps: It turned out that the ring did not look all that terrible in person... >.> And that, is the story of my outfit.
