cosmic-tea-time said: I wanted to let you know that your blog was one of the first that I ever followed on Tumblr after creating an account, which was a very long time ago now(I believe that it was summer of 2011, possibly spring). I stalked it for quite a while before finally breaking down and creating an account, along with a few others. Your blog is still one of my favorites. Even though in reality, it has not been that long, your blog is somehow nostalgic to me, and I hope that it becomes active once again! ^_^ ♥
Thank you so much for the lovely memory sweetie! I’m so glad this blog has helped lead you into the Tumblr addiction and given you happy feelings. FYFK will definitely become active again, and I hope we can all enjoy the pastel cute fashions long into the future! ^^
I’m always open for submissions, so feel free to pass along anything you think would fit! <3
asdfghjkl-imagines said: I adore your blog! Any tips on toning fairy-kei down to a casual school look? Thanks.
Thank you sweetie~!
As far as toning down for school (or work) I think the tiered knit ruffle skirts or simple tule skirts are great and less flashy than the traditional layered tutu style petticoats. They can be found online or at most shops like Forever21 very easily. They pair well with leggings, which everyone is carrying now in a variety of cute prints. You can pair them with cute tshirts (for school) or pastel tops (for work) and then cover with a cute cardigan, bolero, or vest. The layered effects looks awesome for fairy kei, and with a few mix and match pieces you can focus the rest of your back to school budget on cute accessories and jewelry. <3 Hope that helps!

It can be hard dressing apart from the norm in public, especially in places that are less accepting than others. I’ve dressed like a silly princess in lovely Seattle with no one taking a second look, and in my little hick hometown where people would ask the rudest questions. It really comes down to how it makes you feel. For me, dressing in a way that makes me feel happy is most important. I expect that some people won’t understand, and prepare myself to respond to those people. Usually just keeping a smile on my face and answering honestly works. They may still be confused, but that’s their problem and not mine.
As with anything in life, it’s important that we do what makes us happy for us and don’t stifle ourselves for others. On the other hand, it’s important to consider the other side. I know I would be so much more depressed if I was forced to wear plain “normal” clothing everyday, but someone else being happy to dress that way isn’t something I let bother me. The trick is being accepting of others, and doing your best to respond to un-accepting people in a way that makes them consider their own behavior.
I hope that helps. Finding like-minded people to dress up with you and go out can help with the anxiety, too! <3
