We had a theemed Meet-Up recently, the theme was Black and White but most of us ignored it, especailly me because of reasons.
My boyfriend was nice enough to come along and keep me company, we went to the usual café which provides you with pretty cakes that taste like foam and over-priced. I must admit I'm tired of this set-up, and I think I'm not the only ones because the meet-ups are getting shorter and shorter.
We were supposed to go watch a B&W movie at one of the girl's houses but that fell through. This really makes me want to stop going to these meet-ups because I spend more time getting ready and getting there and back than the time I spend there, and then it's not even as much fun as it should. For me.
I've also been feeling very bored with lolita in general, it's always the same and I don't like seeing myself in pictures as much as I used to. I know in the near future I won't have as much money to maintain lolita the way I'd like to, so I don't know what will happen. I seem to go through a stage every year where I'm not paying any attention to lolita at all and then I go back to it. I guess when I go a year without wearing it, it will be the time to start cutting down on the items I own. Maybe it's time to stop wearing sweet lolita and try something different? Maybe I'm maturing in lolita and growing tired of what I have in my closet and not the style itself.
As far as make-up I used the Face and Body foundation from Make-Up Forever (which is too oily for me) and the HD Powder, my blush is Sleek's "Flamingo" which is a very bright pink (but it does fade A LOT), the lipstick is a combo of Urban Decay's lipgloss in "Peroxide" (my favourite) and MAC's Saint Germain (love the colour, don't think the lipstick is worth the price tag).
The wig is by MintyMix.com, I think they have the best price/quality ratio, the wig isn't too shiny, it's super comfortable and there is so much variety in colour and styles.
My opinion on split wigs is that you're already going a bit far with the two colours, so I wouldn't purchase these in overly fake colours because it just takes it from being edgy to being costume-like (in my opinion).
I think it takes a lot of skill to wear a pink/blue/whatevs wig with lolita and make it look put together and not like you're wearing a Halloween costume, which is REALLY not what you want with lolita, and you don't need to add any more elements that make people think it's a costume more than they already do, I think. There is also a problem with a lot of lolitas who wear pink/whateverz wigs that buy low quality pierces and it really doesn't help. At all.
My nail polish is LCN's 310 which is a metalic silvery blue. I love it. I almost always wear LCN polishes because that's the brand my mother works with, I can't really review nail polishes because I have a layer of acrylic over my nails and no nail polish will crack on that, no matter how crappy it is. But LCN is very good.
Super-shiny flashy self. I wasn't a fan of the socks in the outfit or the huge bow with this wig, I should have made the wig poofier to make up for the huge bow.
