LBC: Your Dream Meet-Up

This week’s topic is…

Your Dream Meet-Up

I love going to meet-ups and I miss my community in North Carolina SO FREAK’N MUCH!  They are such a wonderful community and it saddens me to be so far away and have the weekends always be so busy that I haven’t been able to meet the community in Wisconsin.

So it certainly seems like a time to dream about magical meet-ups.

I love meet-ups where you do more than just shop or eat food, even though those are still amazingly fun!  I like to have time to talk with my fellow Lolitas while we do something.  One meet-up that really sticks out to me is where we went ice skating!  It was the first meet-up that I hosted and, despite the sometimes windiness, it was very unique and fun.

Lolita Carnival Blog: Your First Lolita Item

This week’s topic is…

Your First Lolita Item

So I will talk about my first TWO Lolita items (because I’m a rebel): the 1st thing I made, and my 1st brand item.

The first Lolita item I ever made was this OP

Despite some of it’s rocky design choices, I still really love it.  I don’t wear it hardly anymore, but it holds a special place in my heart.  I would love to do tiered circle ruffles again like this in a more country or classic style, but they take up SO MUCH FABRIC haha.  Anyways, even though I still hadn’t met the wonderful North Carolitas when I first wore Lolita to Animazement, it was a fond memory and – luckily – not a complete embarrassment.

My first brand item was my Usakumya bag, which my college roommate gave me one year for my birthday.  It was such a special gift, a sweet memory and an amazing item to receive.  Even though it took me a moment to get over that fact that you pull back the bunny hood and unzip into the bear’s brains to open the bag, I still think that it is a very elegant and wonderful addition to coordinates.  I sometimes think that stuff animal bags can be a bit creepy, but not this one…maybe because it was my first brand item.
