This is my outfit from the International Lolita Day 2012 meet-up in Portland! I am trying to sell this skirt so I wanted to wear it one last time before I try to get rid of it. I realized later I actually wore this skirt to the International Lolita Day meet-up last year also! XD
My goal for this outfit was to do sort of a mature bittersweet coord. I also have been trying to learn how to do new and more interesting things with my hair when I wear lolita and this was my first attempt at this style. I followed FilleDePorcelaine's amazing tutorial here:
On a side note, after the meet-up me and two friends went to an arcade and there was a group of little girls that told us they liked our dresses. A few weeks later my boyfriend and I took his daughter to a local waterpark and those same little girls came up to me and said they remembered me and my friends in our pretty dresses from the arcade! It was probably one of the cutest things ever! They continued to smile and wave at me every time they were around us. I love little kids reactions to cosplay and lolita!
