Lolita Lesson #3: Sweet Lolita

Sweet Lolita is one of the three main Lolita styles (the other being Gothic and Classic). It is charecterized by being the sugary cute princess style of Lolita. Pastel colors are the most common, such as pink, sax, mint, lavender and yellow. But the color does not make the style and there is also a lot of dresses released in colorways that are black, brown and red. The theme and styling is a better tell than the colors. Overall a Sweet Lolita's look should be like a princess or/and doll. Prints are very popular in Sweet Lolita and popular themes include but are not limited to: carousel horses, candy, berries, chocolate, cake, toys and stars. The make-up should be cute and false lashes and circle lenses are very popular. Pastel wigs used to be really popular but having your own hair is gaining popularity. 

The biggest Sweet Lolita brands are Angelic Pretty, Baby the Stars Shine Bright and Metamorphose. They all have a distinct style and a lot of girls have a favorite that the stick to. A notable Sweet Lolita model is Misako Aoki who is one of the people organizing the Kawaii Ambassador initiative. 

I made a collage to help you get the general feel of the style visually: 

None of these are any rules of the style, just descriptions of whats common so that you can get an idea of what the style looks like, so don't be afraid to experiment!

Angelic Pretty: Melty Berry Princess

Word on the lolita groups is that Melty Berry Princess will be released early to mid April, so get your wallet ready berry lovers! I really love the color of the red one above but it seems like the strawberries kinda disappear on the red background so I would probably go for the white colorway. I'm also kinda skeptical as to how the lavender colorway will look, but I guess only time will tell!

I will attend Hellocon!

I just wanted to tell you all that I will be attending Hellocon! Hellocon is a lolita convention in Helsinki, they have a bunch of really awesome guests such as maki and asuka, the designers of Angelic Pretty. Though I am really sad that I do not have a teaparty ticket so I will probably not get to meet them. Well at least I will get to meet a bunch of lovely lolitas!
Hope to see you there!

Cali Vacation: Meeting online friends

Pictures from my second day in California, both me and my dear friend Reba that I was staying with wore Toy Drops and I finally got to meet Desiree and Claudia! It really felt unreal to finally meet these amazing girls, they were all so nice and sweet. I will never forget the first day I met you guys.

We went to a store called Tamaya that was filled with cute san-x thing! I bought a bunch of stuff there! Mostly stuff with my favorite characters, Sumikko Gurashi.

We also went to a japanese food store where we got some snacks and then to Daiso that is kinda like a Japanese dollar store.

Later we went to get some Pho, the food was good but the people who worked there were super rude and asked if it was halloween and took not so sneaky sneak photos. We complained to the manager and got 10% of our food. All in all it was a really lovely day and I got a bunch of cute gifts from my sweet friends!
