OOTD- Black velvet and lace

Hello. Time for another OOTD. I’m posting this one day later than I should because I wasn’t satisfied with the makeup and decided not to post it yesterday. Today I just thought what the heck, sometimes you mess up your makeup and it’s not a real problem so whatever. I was inspired by some victorian clothing when I dressed up, even though my outfit isn’t really victorian.OOTD2.jpgnamn.jpg

Lolitabutiken (Swedish review)

Hej allihopa, Okej så nu medans jag är sjuk och inte har något att göra så tänkte jag att jag kunde göra en liten recension av lolitabutiken.se som är en svensk relativt nystartad lolita internetaffär. De brukar även finnas med på lite olika event som NärCon och PeppCon.
Jag tycker att detta är helt underbart då det gör att lolitakläder och accesoarer blir mycket lättare att få tag på i Sverige. Jag gjorde en liten testbeställning nyligen och allt har funkat skitbra! Personalen är riktigt trevlig och leveransen är snabb och helt felfri. 10/10 rakt igenom!

Jag beställde 2st par strumpor och en fin röd rosettring.
När man beställer får man en liten present och jag fick en gullig liten kartong med två st apelsintuggummin!
Jag är helnöjd med min beställning!

In Berlin!

Hi dearies. Today is almost The last day of My extended weekend trip to Berlin. It’s been great most of The time and a very fun experience. Berlin is a city perfect for those who like culture, pubs, history (perferably ww2) secondhand and other shopping.
I love this city and I would consider living here in The future!

Love,
Viola Whimsical

 

 

 

Who is Viola Whimsical? – DIY

DIY or ”do it yourself” is actually a great part of my life. From a quite young age I started to sew and decorate things for the dolls I had. But when I became I bit older I started to sew and create things that I wanted for myself. A part of the reason of why I started DIY:ing would be because of the lack of pretty much anything in the town, Another reason would be my creative mindset and imagination. Since there haven’t really been anything cool around when I was little I pretty much learned to create anything I wanted to see out of nothing.

Up the road, about 500m from my home is a second hand store. The only store of very few that I really love in my tiny little town. I visit there regulary, once a week to lay my hands on some diy friendly goodies. The range of good things is very limited, so one has to be quick or else the best items might be gone the next day. Fortunalty, some of the things I want or look for specifically seems to be things nobody else in this little town would look for so I don’t have to worry about the items being bought.

 

You will hear alot more about my DIY and art in my blog 😉

That’s all for now!

Recently purchased – H&M big sale shopping

Hello darlings! Todays update is a pretty big post. Lovely Lovely LOVELY autumn is just around the corner with all sorts of exciting things, oh the atmophsefere of autumn! Halloween and all It’s wonder, beautiful light from lit candles, movie watching, UCBC- under cosy blanket cuddling, all saints day here in Sweden, my birthday etc etc. ( I love autumn! I will post more about that later on) But this fall is even more extra exciting for me, I’m entering high school and in a completely diffrent town (FINALLY! It’s a big change<3)  and getting myself pierced. It’s going to be an amazing time for me.  New people, new places, new school, a new everyday life, new everything! (+ ALL OF THAT AUTUMN WONDER!!)

With all of that out of the way,  I wanted to talk about a shopping spree I very recently went on to H&M that turned out AMAZING. I decided to write this post and show off my new stuff because I wanted to show you guys that you can find amazing stuff at just ordinary clothing stores. I want to encourage everybody with alternative styles to try out ordinary stores! It’s often a lot more cheaper than in alternative stores. If the piece just isn’t quite right or doesn’t feel like it’s ready to be worn yet you can modify your findings!  If you are a DIY person like myself  you can easily modify garments of clothing into something more beautiful or cool. This spree includes both clothing at sale and clothing at ordinary prices. I think it’s great because you get the chance to be so creative with the things you find at bargain prices! This is all about your cute eyes and your brain and how good you are at visualizing  random pieces of clothing combined with other pieces that hopefully makes them beautiful to you. ”But help, I feel so stressed out while I’m in the store!” I often feel like this myself so I have tried out these small tricks that almost always work. I used all of these tips while shopping for this H&M shopping spree: + Get there early. Where I shop people seem to want to shop later than I usally do. Less people. Less feeling of stress!   + Listen to Music. Listen to music while shopping is great! Listen to your favourite songs or an album by an artist which you feel calmed down when listening to. + Eat a good meal and drink lots of water before you go off like a pirate at the sales. + Go to bed earlier the day before. More sleep gives you time to reload your batteries. + Don’t stress. Take store by store or section by section within a store on sereval days instead of just one. Less time pressure! ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~      ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~        ~~~~~~~~~~~~ So let’s get started with my pirate findings. ARRGHH!

Who is Viola Whimsical? – Fashion (OLD, from 2013)

Hi! Welcome back. Todays post will be about fashion and my opinions on it.

I have always had a love for alternative looks. I remember being a kid and seeing alternative people when being out of town and falling in love with every single one of them. I stared at them and took in all the details in my little brain. At the age of 9 I told my mother to not buy me any more colourful clothes, I wanted them black!

I started to listen to some ”darker” music at the same time. I played sims as a kid and always dressed my sims in dark clothing with lots of makeup and dyed their hair in crazy colours.  I had a clear picture in my head of how I wanted to look but It was so hard being the only one with such intrests in a little town. I didn’t even know the name of the look I was searching for, and I had no one to ask. One day I looked in a magazine. In that specific magazine I found out about a Swedish site that at the time sold a lot of the things I dreamed of. It was a joy for the eye, and I stayed on that site for hours. The fashion I was searching for was goth. It was like finally coming home.

Being that weird little kid in a small town was so hard. I used to cry a lot and write all of my struggles down in dairies. If it could just float out in form of a black wordvomits on the paper pages, I wouldn’t have to be hateful towards other people in real life.

So goth it was! When entering goth I felt weird at times, because everywhere I looked on the internet everyone had everything completely black, everything! Me being a blonde left me with the thoughts of not really completely being goth, which saddens me when I think about it today.

I say, when entering a fashion, THE FASHION DOESN’T RULE YOU. It is YOU WHO RULE THE FASHION. Not the subculture either for that matter. Fuck the stereotypes!

It may sound cliché, but a lot of cliché things are actually true. You find which part of a fashion (If there is opinions to choose between diffrent types example: substyles within the goth. BTW, WHICH MOST ALTERNATIVE FASHIONS TODAY HAS!) and make it yours! You take bits and parts of the things you love and mix them together so they fit you. For we are not one label, we are all not ONE person and especially not a blank STEREOTYPE. We are all individuals. Sure, one can love the same type of clothing, lipstick and haircolour, but there is ALWAYS going to be something diffrent about us that makes us idividuals. Whatever if someone laughs at you, or tells you that you aren’t goth or whatever you now are, screw them right? Who said that you have to meet other peoples standards? You are being true to yourself! And one does not live for everyone else sake, right? So don’t care what other people think! I call myself goth because It just feels right, It just feels like me,  and if someone is going to tell me otherwise then I won’t give a damn 🙂 ! I am goth, I am not, who cares! I will still wear the things I like with or without the label. Remember that it is not the label who is important and desides whenether if you should  wear certain things or not.

Now those where some of my thoughts on alternative fashions.

I love elegnat gothic fashion! I love to watch clothing and all it’s details from numerous of eras back in time, such as rococo for example. I love lolita fashion. Especially gothic lolita since it combines dark and light, creepy and cute perfectly. It combines most of the things I like in goth fashion and does the same with lolita! It is where I like to be. Laces, pearls, bows, oh all the wonderful things! I sew a lot of things for myself, I am currently sewing a puffy petticoat for my skirts. Summer is just the perfect time to sew, since there is no school for 2 months!

And that leaves us at the last part of this post, and starts with the next post of these get to know Viola posts, DIY.

See you soon!

Who is Viola Whimsical? – Music and style (OLD, from 2013)

Hello again. It’s very nice to see you! Todays post will be about music and style as you already might have read from the last post or this posts title ;).

Shall we start with the music first?

Well first of all, I’m electrogoth/ futurepop and EBM sucker! Haha! In Sweden we call this type of music from the very  beginning ”Synth”.  When I found this type of music I felt like I was home. It just feels right! And that is one of the reasons why I love music so much, you can feel really home without really being home, through music. 🙂 I think It’s beautiful.

I love the bands Depeche mode, The cure, VNV nation, Skinny puppy, Elegant machinery, Colony 5, Covenant, IAMX, And one, Camouflauge.

The band VNV nation including Mark Jackson and Ronan Harris.

But do I only listen to electrogoth/ futurepop and EBM? Nope! I listen to a tiny amount of gothic rock like The cure, the lovely Robert Smith, I listen to a lot of experimental music like Sigur ros, Aphex twin and Björk, she will always be my heroine!! I  also listen to some classic music. Piano is one of my favourite instruments. I also really like the Theremin, It’s an instrument which you never even need to touch to play. It was actually the first electronic instrument ever. It’s super spooky and cool!

Old picture of Björk. So cute!

 

The artist Kerli will probably always mean a lot to me since her music helped me through some awful times. She’s also a heroine to me. I have so much to thank her for. The fact that she is a girl who originally also comes from a little town in a forest, but in Estonia made me absolutetly crazy about her. When I listened to her a lot she had a alternative rock sound going on, at the moment shes creating pop music and I like some of that as well.

Music and the impact it can make on one person is positively amazing and goregous. One of the best things in life is music if you ask me 😉
And now to the style part of this post:
Style is something that should be really fun and personal. I love to be creative with my own look. I think that style is a form of self love. You take care of yourself and make yourself beautiful just for YOU because YOU love yourself. Now, some people doesn’t want to have style and it is just as okay as it is to want to. To me it happend to be expressing myself just like when I draw. I use myself as a canvas and create a pretty picture using myself. I like to wear makeup and cute clothes and decorate everything I see. What’s wrong with that?
I am not a superficial person at all. I think that it is very sad when people judge me just because of how I look casue I am, as told before a sweet loving person. But It’s also quite good that some people do that because then I just know that I wouldn’t want them in my life anyways. I guess that it is the people who get to know me will understand this. I just like celebrate beauty and style everyday. Even when I’m not all fixed with makeup and pretty things!
And that’s the post of today. I hope everyone have a great day or night according to where you are in the world! It is late evening here in Sweden.
Next post will be about fashion and sewing (as in clothing,shoes and those other lovely things.)

Who is Viola Whimsical? – Introduction (OLD, from 2013)

To everyone who is reading this right now, I am so happy that you found your way to my blog. I appreciate it very much, thank you. I hope you’ll feel very welcome here!
I think that It’s time to introduce myself.

Hello! My internet name is Viola Whimsical. You can call me Viola. I come from a tiny town in Sweden inside of a forest. If you happend to be wondering, yes It is quite beautiful! Sweden overall is a quite beautiful country and great place to live. It is a country who has free education, a country where gays can marry and adopt. Where I can say whatever I want about anything and dress however I like. I can also go wherever I want. Sweden has a beautiful clean nature which I now intend to go back to, I come from a forest. It’s surrounding my tiny little town who one can drive through in 3 minutes. You’re starting to get the picture now, right? Right.

I can pick blueberries in the autumn and all kinds of mushrooms, quite close to my home. It’s rather convinient. That’s enough of that for now.

Who I am , however depends of what kind of person you are. 

I am quite sweet and sensitive as a person but might look a bit odd to some people.

I enjoy drawing, filming, photographing, dancing, singing, writing and sewing but not at the same time of course!

I love animals and mister Tim Burton will always be my hero. I listen to a lot of music too, but that’s for another post. I will very soon serve you a new post about, music and style!

That’s all for now. Thank you for reading.
