So first I want to show you the outfit that I wore! I decided to wear my brand new Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Odette jumperskirt! It took me a long time to come up with an outfit, as I didn’t want to wear this dress with a white blouse! Luckily, after trying some outfits on my new dress form (called Fantasic Dolly!) I found the perfect blouse from my ‘normal’ wardrobe to go with it! I combine dit with simple accessories and my matching pink Fantasic Dolly socks! This is the outfit I wore:
♪Pas de Deux Lolita♪
My outfit rundown:
Headbow: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Jsk: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright’s Pas de Deux in the Blue Moon Odette Version
Accessories: Angelic Pretty, Claire’s, offbrand
Socks: Angelic Pretty
Umbrella: Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
Bag: Angelic Pretty
This picture was taken at the end of the day, but it shows my entire outfit perfectly. ^^
I was really happy with my outfit! I loved wearing my new jsk and headbow for the first time! I also wore my black shoes for the first time, my feet and legs hurt so badly that night! XD
Although we departed very much on time, we still managed to arrive a bit late in Utrecht! I think this was because we went by car, parked, took the tramway to the station and walked the last part from there.
Although we had to walk fast (it was already 1:05 pm and the show would start at 1 pm), it was interesting to see how the usually crowded shooping streets were deserted. Even the lively conservatory (where I am not going to study T_T) was quiet!
The beautiful streets of Utrecht.
We arrived at the Domsquare where the fashionshow had already started. Of course there was a big crowd around the stage, so I couldn’t stand close. I was glad I was able to see everything despite my height. ^^
The fashionshow was lovely and I saw a lot of girls I had met on the forum! After the show I met up with one of my friends and all of the Lolitas went to a little park to take pictures together and a group picture!
After the fashionshow I met up with my friend Catherine and we wanted to find out where all the Lolitas would meet. I saw one of my Facebookfriends Josine and I talked a little with her. After that, me and many other Lolitas were ambushed by photographers who wanted to take our picture! It was so much fun! I felt like a total celebrity, posing in front of at least ten cameras! I received many business cards too. ^^
After a while, we followed the other Lolitas to a little garden, where we took a group picture of all the Lolitas together. At least thirty photographers took dozens of pictures of us! Then we took separate group pictures: Sweet and Gothic/black. Because I was wearing black, I was in a picture with the Gothics! I’ve never had that before, I loved it! We hung out in the garden for a while and people asked for pictures. My mom also took some pictures of me alone and with friends.
All those photographers! XD
Some girls decided to go eat out, others wanted to have some tea. I decided to follow Josine to a restaurant not far away. It must have been an interesting sight: all those differently dressed girls sitting in a circle on a terrace, waiting for tea. Meanwhile, my mom browsed the Gothic market. After a while, I decided to go join my mom and she showed me a stand that had amazing lace parasols. I fell in love with a pink one and my mom decided to buy it. I love that parasol so much, it’s so kitch! ♥ My mom also fell in love with Victorian clothing! She even considers buying some pieces in the future!
My mom took some alone pictures of me.
I apologize for my peeking petticoat. -_-‘ I discovered the dress is a bit shorter than my other dresses, but it was only when we went home I realised.
We went back to the square where the fashion had been and I asked Leyla, the owner of MFashion, for a picture. Then, a journalist asked if we wanted to be in a picture together for her magazine. I wonder if we our picture was published..
My mom and I had gotten quite hungry and we decided to do something very dangerous: eat garlic bread. There was a stand with amazing garlic bread and you could put many different toppings on it. There weren’t any places left to sit, so we had to sand next to the stand. You should have seen me eat: standing as far away from my food as possible so I wouldn’t spill anything on my dress! It was a challenge, but I succeeded!
We had gotten quite tired and we decided it was time to leave. My mom took some last pictures of me in the streets of Utrecht with the low sun and we also ate some ice cream! A very nice older couple asked me some questions about my outfit. They were so nice! They had been to Summer Darkness last year and they were disappointed to hear hey had just missed it! They said they loved my outfit. ^^
The text on the ice cream car says ‘I melt for you’. ♥
My mom and I went back to the station and back to the car. Since it had been quite a warm day, I decided to take my dress and socks off in the parking garage (I usually wouldn’t do that, but here was no one around).
Then we went home. Both my mom and I enjoyed ourselves very much! We definitely want to return next year!
Pfew, it was hard to combine an outfit post and a report. I hope you enjoyed it and I sincerely hope you like my outfit! ^^ I must say I felt comfortable and very pretty in it! I love my new dress to death and I loved wearing it for the first time on such a wonderful day! Thank you for reading! ♥
Bonus picture: our dangerous food!
