Are You In For a Candy Treat?

So, a little break between my Tokyo posts (they will continue, I promise)! I hope you all had a wonderful International Lolita Day on Saturday, December 3rd! In case you might have thought: ‘Why wasn’t there any post about ILD on Lolita Wonderland? Not even an announcement for this festive holiday?’ I have to confess: I had forgotten about it… Unbelievable right? When I came home from work and turned on the computer, I suddenly saw ILD posts pop up everywhere and I realised what I had forgotten that morning. So, Happy Belated International Lolita Day! ^^

Last Saturday, December 10th, was my 19th birthday! I had been looking forward to that day for quite a while, not only because of presents (come on, who doesn’t like presents?), but also because I had decided to wear Lolita for the first time! I guess that was also part of the reason why I forgot about ILD, since I would have my own Lolita Day the week after!
I invited my group of friends to come over at night, since I had to work during the day. I was glad I was allowed leave early, since I had a lot of work to do! I had put together a coord a couple of days before, which wasn’t too hard, since I had it all in my head already! ^^
I was only doubting about the socks.
I always imagined the first time I wore Lolita. I didn’t want to throw an outfit together with some pieces I had, but I wanted to create an outfit that would make me feel a complete and beautiful Lolita. I chose to wear my lavender Candy Treat Jsk, because it was the first dress I bought in Tokyo and I love it so, so much! I first did my make-up, including eyeliner. I have never worn eyeliner before and I only started practising the week before, but the result was more than great to me. After that, I curled my hair (which took forever. XD). Then, it was finally time to put on my outfit! My heart, it was pounding so hard as I slowly put on my bloomers, blouse, jsk and then my petticoat. My heart really filled with excitement! This was the moment I had been waiting for and I could only wish it would be as magical as I had hoped. I put my Candy Treat bow and Chocomint star in my hair and put my lovely wristcuffs on my wrists. Rings on my fingers and done (I put my socks and shoes on later)! And when I looked in the mirror, I could only feel so… incredibly happy! I just looked at myself from different angles and I just felt so pretty for the first time in ages!

So, I hereby present to you my very first Lolita outfit:

My outfit rundown:
Bow: Angelic Pretty’s Candy Treat
Blouse: Angelic Pretty
Jsk: Angelic Pretty’s Candy Treat
Accessories : Angelic Pretty, Chocomint
Wristcuffs : Angelic Pretty
Socks : Angelic Pretty
Shoes : An*Tai*Na

It feels so awesome to write a rundown of my outfit! I so, so hope you all like it! I know I did, I was quite proud of myself!
When one of my friends arrived, her first reaction was: ‘So cute!’ Then we went downstairs together, where my parents were. I was a bit nervous about their reaction. My parents are really amazing, but I can imagine they would have to get used to their daughter dressing like a cupcake. But they were both so cool, as I should have known! My mom offered to take some pictures of me and I was glad she did, so I can show you some more pictures!

Although I prefer pictures taken with daylight, these came out pretty great. ^^
The rest of my friends arrived and their reactions were all very positive! But to be honest, the compliments my mom gave me made me the most happy. She was constantly saying things like: ‘You really have the face for this style!’ and ‘If you’re going back to Tokyo, you really should wear Lolita while walking in the streets!’ She said such sweet things! She always says sweet things, but these made me just so happy!

I cannot describe to you what a magical evening I had! I was afraid I wouldn’t feel comfortable in my big dress, but I actually felt the opposite. I had to get used to the big shape of the skirt, but the clothes felt quite comfortable on my body. And sitting down felt a bit like sitting on a cloud! I felt so pretty and happy that I had a smile on my face the entire time! These clothes really work magical! I even acted cuter than usual, haha. ^^

I also posted my first entry on Daily Lolita! It feels so amazing!

I am definitely a real Lolita now! And I definitely want to wear these magical clothes more! ♥

  10. I'm so happy for you!! This is the first time I've commented, but I've been reading your blog for a while now.
    I'm a beginning Lolita too, though I have already created outfits from things I've found locally, as well as Loli-inspired coordinates. I'm a classic Lolita at heart, but sweet is oh so cute as well!

    I really look forward to seeing more coordinates from you. You're a natural~
