Over the past few years, I’ve been trying very hard to get more enjoyment and fulfillment out of my life. I don’t want to look back and wish I hadn’t wasted so much time~ I decided to continue this trend by wearing lolita on the first of the year.
I spent New Year’s Day at my mother’s house, enjoying a family dinner with 11 people around our table~ @@ Although my close family is desensitized to my frilliness, my grandparents attended the meal and I didn’t want to shock them. They don’t necessarily understand why their adult granddaughter wants to look like a cupcake. n~ I love them both and don’t want to make them too uncomfortable.
So I left the Cherry Berry Bunny at home and opted for a more demure sweet look. :3 My Christmas present this year was a long-sleeved white blouse from BABY, the Stars Shine Bright, so I had to wear that! My mother and stepfather were actually worried that I wouldn’t like it–even though I’ve really wanted a long-sleeved white blouse! I also wore the pink macaron socks they gave me as a souvenir from Paris. ♥
Even the jumperskirt was a gift–from my little sister. I really adore this general style that BtSSB releases, and it’s exciting to own it in pink. I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it.
I opted for just a ribbon pinned into my hair, instead of a larger bow or headdress, because I know that the hair accessories can seem really overwhelming to those not accustomed to the fashion. Also, my family always asks for me to leave my hair down, but I felt unfinished without some kind of adornment.
I hope this is the first of many outfits in 2010! I really love wearing lolita. ♥
Hair bow, jumperskirt, blouse, and socks are BABY, the Stars Shine Bright. Slippers are dorky! 😀
