Before all this happened, I bought Dream of Lolita's Fantastic Dolly replica in red off the EGL sales community, on a bit of a whim. It arrived right after I got back, so I decided to throw together a retro-inspired coord. I was rather pleased with how it looks, despite being out of my comfort zone! And I had an excuse to break out the red lipstick and heels.

I then went out and ran some errands, my outfit received a particularly enthusiastic response at Home Depot, for some reason...
