Lolita Blog Carnival: Design a complete coordinate for under 100$

I joined the Lolita Blog Carnival and this is the first post! In short, a Blog Carnival is a group of bloggers, who decide for a common topic and then all members make a post about it at the same time! If you want to join the group, you can click here:

And now, on to the post!
I think it's really hard to create a full Lolita outfit for 100$! I'm sure that every Lolita has an outfit in her closet which cost less than this, but usually the items were collected over a longer period and not bought at once. However I'm happy to tell you that my items are still available to buy... but not for long anymore because some of them are on sale (and that's the only reason I could find a cheap coord ^^)
Btw I also own all of those items except for the shoes!

Dress: 20€ = 26$ ORSAY
Cardigan: 15€ = 20$ ORSAY
Hat: 10€ = 13$ ORSAY
Stockings: 7€ = 9$ ORSAY
Necklace: 7€ = 9$ Ebay
Shoes: 18€ = 23$ Ebay
Total: 77€ = 100$

I think my coordination is something between Lolita and Inspired, I had especially a hard time to find matching shoes, because all shoes I own are not available anymore or too expensive ^^' But I still like my coord and I want to wear it on Saturday for the Sweet Harajuku Meet-up! Then I can show you worn pictures ^_^

What do you think about my coord? And how much cost your cheapest Lolita coord in your closet?

Finally, here are the posts from the other participants of the Lolita Blog Carnival! Please check them out <3

The different styles of Sweet - DECO LOLITA


Deco Lolita is a mix of Decora and Lolita Fashion. Some people are complaining that this style is just Decora with a Lolita dress, but that's not true! I will show you the differences in my following explanations ^_^

In Decora it's normal to use your real hair in your natural color. Dyed hair is also okay but you don't wear wigs. However in Deco Lolita it's necessary to have voluminous hair, usually a wig in unnatural colors. For the best overfilled look you can backcomb your hair into two giant pictails.

The preffered colors are popping colors like hot pink, red or vibrant blue, mixed with some pastel colors. In this way you create a very busy appearance.

This is the most important fact in Decora: Wear as many accessoires as possible! You're not only wearing multiple necklaces, bracelets and rings, but you also overfill your outfit from head to toe, which could be many buttons on your dress, plushies turned into bags, a huge amount of pendants on the bag, several toys placed anywhere in the outfit, and even rhinestones and stickers in the face! 

But the hair decoration is different in Deco Lolita: while you wear a ton of simple hairclips in Decora, you choose less but bigger hairclips in Deco Lolita. Usually you wear a big headbow and place plushy clips, rhinestones, decorated mini hats and more bows around it.

In Decora fashion it's necessary to layer clothes, like wearing multiple skirts and shirts. But in Deco Lolita you wear usually one JSK or OP with a poofy petticoat and all-over print. You can wear several socks and leg warmers. For shoes you choose typical Lolita shoes like Mary-Janes instead of sneakers.

It's important to wear heavy makeup, especially if you are wearing a giant wig and several stickers in your face, so your face doesn't get lost between all the hair and accessoires. That means fake lashes, Circle Lenses and a popping lipstick color. But the makeup should still look pretty, don't look like a clown ^_~

Wohooo 50 Readers + Shopping Stuff

Hello my dear readers!

Recently I just got my 50th reader! I'm so happy and I just want to say thank you to all people who follow my blog, also a special thanks to the girls (and boys?? xD) who are always commenting my posts <3 I told myself, if I get 50 readers I will make a give away! So I will prepare it and tell you soon more about it <3

And now to my last special purchases! I bought one of my dream dresses, Little Bear's Cafe in pink! I love teddy bears and donuts so I had to buy this dress! But to be honest I dislike the squirrel, it is so ugly xD This is also a special dress for me because 2 of my friends own it in different colors, so I can twin with them ... wait, I can triple with them xD <333

And then a My Melody bag! I bought it for the new dress and as a Hime bag! Aaaand Himena Ami has the same :DDD

New bloomers for Fairy Kei! They have a skull print *O*And isn't the little bow perfect as an Hime hair accessoire? Yeah I think much about Hime recently because I felt in love with this style and I just bought my first real Hime dress... just hope it fits me... ^^'''

A petticoat for Fairy Kei... but it is sooo short -.-

And the last item, new tights of Holley Tea Time! I wanted printed tights for a long time now and I'm so happy that I own them <3 They are REALLY good quality, I mean they cost 25$ which looks expensive at the first sight, but they are really soft and made from a robust material (like leggins), so they will last a long time!

Thank you so much for reading and stay tuned for the give away :D <3

Meeting friends in Münster

Last Saturday I travelled to Münster to meet some friends. We had a little picknick and then took pictures in the beautiful botanical garden. But unfortunately, the garden is really green and don't have so many colorful backgrounds for Sweet Lolitas xD

(Sorry for the bad quality, I honestly don't know why blogger sometimes reduces the quality of the pictures with no reason O__O)

May and me had matching outfits :D

In the jungle

Gangnam Style xDDD

Here you can see my pretty hairstyle - May did it for me because I can't do it myself >-<

The tree looks so pretty in the middle of the lake

May in the fairy tale forest

The leaves were crazy big O_O

 My first time trying to make some gifs xD

Thank you very much for reading!!!
