Mimi Party 2016 and life updates ♡

Hello everyone! I know I'm behind with my Japan posts, truth is I haven't been feeling motivated to write them although, eventually, I'll carry on with them. In the mean time let me keep you updated on the most recent events.

Last Sunday I attended Mimi Party 2016, a big event to celebrate kawaii culture held by Brazil's Kawaii Ambassador. I arrived late and didn't stay too long, spent most of my time there socializing with friends I hadn't seen in a while and I didn't even buy anything because I was too busy catching up with fellow lolitas.

Even though many lolitas attended the event, there was a surprising number of "normal people" this year, enough to outnumber the lolitas! And several lolitas there were completely new faces to me, not sure if because they are indeed new in the community or came from different cities just to attend the event.

Picture from Mimi Party's official page.
It doesn't seem like it on the picture above but the place where Mimi Party happened was packed! So many people attended in comparison to it's previous editions!

Serving boob-loaf realness. Please ignore whatever I had going on my foot.
Whenever I'm busy chatting with people I forget to eat so I only had Tea Kettle's pink iced-tea which was good as always although pricey and a macaron filled with green tea ice cream from Sweet Deli which was also delicious! Thanks to my boyfriend who got it for me otherwise I wouldn't have eaten anything at all!

I decided to wear my University OP and hug winter goodbye. Being the crazy perfectionist I am no need to say that there were many things I resent on my outfit.

Time to nit-pick myself: wore the same wig again, tried to make my eyebrows match the color for once, failed. Plain legwear, rings don't match but it would be that or no accessories at all. Couldn't find any of my sports bra on the occasion, had to wear padded bra with a dress that requires a chest as flat as possible, etc, etc, etc. Dress, beret brooch and biscuit ring are Angelic Pretty, tights are Wego, shoes are Unicorn Holic, bag is Amavel with Tokyo Disney Sea charm.

Managed a selfie.
Didn't stay long at Mimi Party 2016 but had a good time and despite being so hard on myself and my coords I loved wearing University OP, such a comfortable dress, the cotton is very breathable.

Now a few life updates! Scored a few items since I got back from Japan! The first two I still need to get shipped here, probably on my birthday in October:

I'm obsessed with Milk bags, they are such a great investment, look at this gorgeous color!

Wishlist tights! I always keep an eye out for chocolate items, my collection is still a baby but I'm working on it!

And here's a little something-something I already have in my hands because for the first time ever I bought locally! My friend send me a message offering her Lotta, which as you might know, is one of my dream dresses. I paid her as quickly as possible and in less than a week I had the dress with me!

Nope, it's not the blue one! But as I mentioned before I would be more than happy with the pink one as well. So that leave me with only four dream dresses to hunt down!

Another thing I'd like to share is that I've been trying to wear j-fashion more often since I got back from Japan. On Wednesday it was a holiday and I attempted otome-kei to spend the day out with my boyfriend.

Emily Temple Cute Plushie print OP with Fi.n.t shoes, Angelic Pretty Melty Spoon necklace, Swimmer bag and off-brand navy cardigan and tights.
Otome is so much more forgiving than Lolita, I felt good in this outfit, I could ditch the wig, the pressure I put on myself when it comes to Lolita, my crazy high standards that I'll never reach.
I'll try to wear Otome as much as I can from now on and my wallet is ready to invest on more ETC and Leur Getter.
I still love Lolita, but Otome is much more wearable and makes me feel good about myself so Lolita won't be getting my exclusive attention anymore.

One last thing before I get back to Japan posts: I'll be attending Bows Lolita Convention in Santiago, Chile in November! I'll spend five days in Chile and it will be my first time there! Rin Rin and Misako Aoki are special guests of the event so I'm thrilled! Can't wait to meet them!

Thank you for reading ♡


  1. DEI UM GRITO AQUI!! Você conseguiu o lolotta!! Que emoção!!

    Queria ter falado um pouquinho com você no evento, mas já tava indo embora. Gostei do outfit, acho que pessoalmente tava bem mais bonito que nas fotos e as cores combinavam mais!

    Mas ahh você tava linda como sempre.

    E a parte da comida esse ano... filas e mais filas, você nem imagina.

    Tinha um monte de gente 'comum' esse ano. Eu até reencontrei um amigo do ensino médio lá.

    1. Né?? Eu encontrei uma menina do meu trabalho! Mas foi legal, ainda bem que apesar de tudo não passei o stress da comida, vou tentar chegar menos atrasada da próxima vez e obrigada *u* espero usar o Lolotta logo <3

  2. Owww Audrey! Don't be so harsh with yourself! You look gorgeous! I'm happy J fashion is having a blast in other parts of America :D Have lots of fun in Chile!!
