Tea Party Talk & Birthday Wishes

Hello everybody :D

Today's been my last 'real' day at work and I feel very relieved that I have at least one final week of holidays before university officially starts. One week to get all the moving done, unpack, clean etc. and then we can have a fresh start into the new semester! It also means I also decided that I should update more often, even if it's just a short entry, so here's a little talk about the next upcoming events!

By now you've probably already read on my blog about the upcoming Innocent World Tea Party in Vienna. To those of you who have absolutely no idea what this event could be, a quick explanation: it's a special Lolita-fashion meet up, usually hosted at a more fancy venue, where you have to pay for a ticket, but in return get to see for example a fashion show, have a raffle, and special VIP guests. In this case Yumi Fujiwara, the designer of the Lolita brand Innocent World will be the special guest.

Since I haven't been a Lolita for a very long time, I have to admit I do not own any clothes by IW. However, I really like their style, mostly the floral designs (I'm such a sucker for flowers, haha). One of my favorite prints is Violets inside Mansions. In general I find their prints every elegant and creative. They also have a stained glass print called Westminster. Their Royal Library series is inspired the Austrian National Library in Vienna. I think it's really cool that their first Tea Party outside of Japan will be held in Austria now!

While the brand's theme is more classic, my personal Lolita wardrobe doesn't really have much to offer in that area. I decided to try a crossover of Sweet, Gothic and Classic, and I hope it will turn out well :) I ordered some stuff from ebay and etsy and now I just hope everything will arrive in time and then I can throw it all together to check if it looks good enough, haha! I bought these items kinda as birthday gifts for myself. I've been spending a lot (really a LOT) of money on my apartment, especially the kitchen, and it's still not over yet, there are some more bills to pay, so I didn't dare spend a lot of money, but these are things that are, I think, within the boundaries of what I can spend. My wishlist is endless this year, I think I've never had so many wishes for my birthday, and I was never so sure that none of them will be fulfilled unless I buy it myself :'D Too bad I can't afford it all, but at least I wanted to have these small items, I'll show you as soon as they're here!

I've had tons of ideas on Lolita coords lately, and I hope for many meet ups and occasions in Winter where I'll be able to wear some of it. I just think autumn/winter is much better for Lolita fashion than summer, if I think about our last meet up and how hot it was... ugh.

Another amazing thing happened to me a while ago, I think I mentioned it before! When they announced the model contest for the Tea Party I wasn't too confident when I sent my application. I just thought I'd give it a try and  see what happens. And surprise, they liked my photos enough to chose me as one of the models for the fashion show!
Now I am super excited and nervous about it, I don't know what I'll get to wear yet but I don't really mind, I just hope it's no babydoll dress, because they make me look huge, haha. Other than that, even if it's a print or something I'd not normally wear by myself, for the fashions how I'd be very excited to try something new too.

Since I'll have to re-dress myself 2 times during the event, I decided that I'll probably wear a wig. Or actually two wigs. This will make it easier to change the style of my hair to fit the dress. I just hope I have time (and money) to go to the hair dresser before so I can get my hair layered and thinned. It has reached past my waist by now and is so fluffy and voluminous it's not easy to pack it all under a wig cap!


Will any of my readers be at the tea party too, I wonder?
If so, I'd love to meet you!

    Wir freuen uns schon tierisch darauf. Da wir gerne auch was von der Stadt Wien sehen wollten reisen wir auch schon am Donnerstag an. Das wird bestimmt ein lustiger Aufenthalt.

    Vielleicht traue ich mich ja auch Dich anzusprechen. ^^"
