What a nostalgic topic for Lolita Blog Carnival this week! What was your first lolita item? For me, this stretches back to 2008 when I bought my first skirt. Since then, it's all be down hill (for my bank account) with building my wardrobe and personal style, and finding dream dresses.
My first ever item in lolita fashion was Metamorphose's Surprise Party from 2008. I still love this skirt so much even though I've not worn it in a couple of years. It has the most gorgeous details, from little swan cream puffs, to sweet toffee apples and all sweet things you'd find at a lovely lolita party. Honestly, though I might have drifted through styles a little, I think this print really shows my continued love for prints with desserts and sweets. I love it dearly and hope I'll never part with it!
And to further our journey down memory lane, here's an outfit from 2011 with my cute Surprise Party skirt. I paired it with a matching candy stripe top and touches of brown and chocolate for a casual day eating macarons! Ignore the facial expression, if you please.
