"British Tea Time" Lolita meet up & Metamorphose Tea Party Announcement

Hello guys!

Yesterday was such an amazing day. After a really stressful week with lots of work and the PhD interviews (which went well by the way! I have a pretty good feeling...) I was very relieved to have a fun and relaxing week end ahead of me to enjoy!

On Saturday, Sylvia had organized a small Lolita meet up in a Viennese Café called "Little Britain". I was happy to get a spot, as the café is not very big we were only 14 people in total. I was also very lucky because the meet up was in a district where could easily find a parking spot for my car, so I didn't have take public transport, haha.

The café is really cute and so beautifully furnished! I guess all of us Lolitas felt at home right away :D The owner was super friendly and not only did she take a group photo for us, she also asked to be in one photo with us so she could hand it up on her photo wall ♥ We also used the beautiful ambiance to take outfit photos of everyone. In retrospect, I wish I had taken more photos and also brought a proper camera. But since I didn't I had to borrow some of the photos for this entry from others ^^"

I was planning my outfit for a while now - I wanted to wear my newest dress, Innocent World's Rococo Rose, again before it gets too warm for dark colors, so I went for a  rather classic outfit. I don't usually like to wear so many things on my head, but coincidentally the roses of the headband match the colors of the print perfectly, so I gave it a try :)

Fancy pants (Outfit post)

Heyo my dear readers,

The recent lack of updates is easily explained. I am working my ass of for my Master thesis and still have to take a few exams in parallel to my more-than-full-time job in my research project. When I come home, I either have to study or I'm sod dead tired I collapse on the sofa and just stay there till my body feels equally tired than my mind and I drag myself to bed to sleep. I wish I could live a better life style but at the moment, I just don't have the energy to focus on anything than my current objective: graduate before September.

At the end of March I'll have a few interviews regarding the PhD program I applied for. With this, my future will  more or less be determined. Either I get into the program and have a job starting October - hopefully for the couple of next years - or I don't, and I pretty much don't know what I'd do if I don't. But I have a few alternatives in mind, and while I will probably be devastated if I am rejected, it won't be the end of the world, and just mean that I will follow some rather different plans for my future... but let's see how this will turn out!

In the meantime, here's some outfits I wore lately! The photos are really bad quality because whenever I do have time to wear something nice, I usually don't have the additional time to take nice photos as well... sorry!

Review: iFairy Venus Red Lenses /// I'm just fashionably late.

Hey guys!

I'm back with another review! This time it's a very special lens model in red! I got iFairy Venus Red from lensvillage.com. They have a diameter of 16.2mm and I think this makes them the largest lenses I ever wore!

Of course with that color and special design I wanted to make a special outfit too, and when I ordered them I already had something in mind - a White Rabbit costume!

(with a Shironuri-inspired make up)

DIY: Slaying the Lace Monster (Customizing Bodyline Part II)

Hello guys!

Today I wanna show you some pictures of a recent little DIY project of mine! Again, I chose to customize a Bodyline item, but compared to last time, the starting point was... well, let's have the pictures speak for themselves!


Left: original lace monster /// Right: toned down version of the dress I can actually see myself wearing again one day

So, let me tell you the backstory of this dress. In 2010, I got my first Lolita dress after liking the style for a few years already, but never really being overly invested in the fashion. I did not do any big research, and my "taste" was largely influenced by Old School Lolita styles, as I had first come in contact with the fashion a few years before. I liked cross lacing, and a cute, painfully maid-like style, so I chose this dress from Bodyline to be my first Lolita item....

Review: Fairy 1 Day Princess (disposable) Circle Lenses (Lensvillage.com)

Hey guys! It's review time ♥

This time I'm reviewing a product that was entirely new to me - did you know that there are daily/disposable circle lenses?! I wasn't aware of that, but when I heard about it for the first time I was hooked right away!

The lenses I am wearing here are Fairy 1 Day Princess circle lenses in green. I got mine from Lensvillage.com and you can find these lenses right here ! They are also available in other colors. The brand is called Sincere Vision and on their homepage you can also find some other lenses that they produce.
