Today should be for Day 7, 10 People that Inspire Your Style. But I don't actually have an article for that. There just isn't anyone who inspires my style. I wear what I like, and while sometimes I'll see another lolita who inspires me, but no one person does on a regular basis. So I decided to skip to day 8. Day 8's prompt is 10 songs that inspire you for lolita. Oh no! I don't listen to a lot of music!
1. Sakura Kiss (String Version)
Believe it or not, I played the violin for almost 10 years. I wasn't very good, and by the end I resented the instrument, the teachers, the other players, and pretty much everything. But I still have an appreciation for the sound of an orchestra, and it reminds me of a lot of things, both good memories and bad ones. This version of the Ouran High School Host Club theme is my favorite because it sounds so elegant and refined.
2. Vivace from Piano Concerto in D Major Hob. 18/11 (Haydn)
Another classical piece. One that not many people are familiar with. I'm not sure where I heard this piece. But it's lovely and again elegant and refined. I can imagine sipping tea in a garden in my lolita finest while this piece plays.
3. Chocolat by Kaya
I asked my friend Guy to find me some music for the very first fashion show I ran. The show was a bit of a mess, but this song was perfect. It's upbeat, sweet, and sung by Kaya, who is a visual kei band? singer? This is the only song that I have of his, so I don't really know much about him. Listen to it!
And I don't have a tenth song. But still, I did a lot better than I expected. I hope you liked all the youtube videos!
