Hello everyone! Last Sunday I went to Ressaca Friends, the last anime con of the year in my city, to participate in the Ribbon Fashion Contest final, an annual Lolita contest I was selected to be part of in July. We met all the lolitas in the Lolita Tea Party room and then headed together to the auditorium for the contest.
Although there were only ten contestants, several other lolitas came to the see the show. There would be three winners and the prize was a Baby, The Stars Shine Bright brand new dress. By the moment I got there I knew I wouldn't be able to win. I saw the other girls outfits and I felt really plain in comparison. I saved my Sweet Cream House set for the contest but since I'm still building a wardrobe and don't have many accessories and things yet I wasn't able to do my best. But I wore circle lenses and fake eyelashes! Which I usually never do for reasons (can't put them on by myself). I felt really pretty with the eyelashes but I'm still getting used to the lenses...God made my eyes brown for a reason --' I look so weird with green eyes, the color of the circle lenses I was wearing.

Before I show a better picture of my outfit and the rundown I would like to make a retrospective of my Lolita life so far. I've started wearing the style about nine months ago and I've worn it a total of eight times so far, here is my progress:
|1st oufit: didn't really know what I was doing.|
|2nd and 5th outfit: actually I was wearing the same outfit for the 2nd time in the picture.|
|3rd outfit: one of my favorites, it was just a matter of nicer legwear and a puffier petticoat.|
|4th outfit: can't believe that coordinating a skirt got me a place on the Ribbon Fashion Contest final!|
|6th outfit: the pictures didn't do justice to my casual ballerina inspired outfit :(|
|7th outfit: my first Loliday! Wish I would've worn a different wig but I like this coord!|
And here is my last outfit:
|8th outfit: getting better ♡|
Dress: Angelic Pretty Sweet Cream House
Bag: Angelic Pretty Sweet Cream House
Bolero: Le Carrousel
Socks and tights: off-brand
Star clip: Chocomint
Gingerbread pin: handmade
That's it guys! I did the best I could with the things I own because this year I was totally broke and had to focus on studying. Maybe next year I'll be able to invest more in Lolita.
Not winning the contest was a little bit sad but the other girls have been around a lot longer than newbie me right? Plus my boyfriend got me this to cheer me up and it certainly worked:
