Continuing my affinity for wool, I chose this simple Tweed Rose JSK by Mary Magdalene to wear today. It is quite clearly an older dress, as it showcases a shorter skirt and less room for a petticoat. I paired this with a lacy chiffon blouse from the same brand, and doubled up on 'sweater stockings' and knit OTK socks by Innocent World.
The chignon was from a video tutorial by Fanny Rosie, and paired well with the Victorian Maiden floral corsages. A fox holding a book by Mulberry Chronicles seemed like the logical brooch to add, mostly to showcase my surprise that animals even survived the -65 windchill weather from three weeks ago.
Being cold was an understatement for posing in sub zero weather.
Afterwards, we went for some obligatory Pokemon Go raiding. I wish I had taken a picture but at one point there were a group of us standing in the middle of little used park, stamping our feet in foot deep snow, trying to catch a Pokemon. It was absurdity.
That night however went somewhat better and more thought out. We had bought some squid tubes from the fishmonger (in the Midwest, I know right?) the other day, and I had wanted to attempt ikameshi, or squid filled with sweet rice. We followed a Cooking with Dog (rest in peace Francis) recipe.
Here is the squid before we cooked it.
And here it is, all cooked!
While some rice spilled out after cooking, the squid was surprisingly intact, and delicious. While it definitely could use improvement, I feel that it would be a great bento box addition! The recipe link is both above and here if you want to try it.
What sort of lengths have you gone to to get nice pictures?
