December Outfit Recap: so many fun holiday events!


December was a busy month for Lolita events, with International Lolita Day (the biannual "unofficial" Lolita holiday) and multiple Christmas meetups. I also had a chance to dress up with my family for the holidays! It was also a really busy month for sewing, but I'll save that for another post.
The first meetup was a last-minute casual meet (we're fond of those in our comm) at the usual tea place, so I put together a pretty simple winter-y outfit for it.

For International Lolita Day, I really wanted to wear my newest JSK (purchased at PMX, remember?) and also really wanted to have an underskirt with it for some reason. So I made an underskirt very last minute, oops! I was really pleased that everything did come together in the end.

For our community Christmas meetup, the theme was "The Nutcracker", so I put together an ouji coordinate inspired by Herr Drosselmeyer for the meetup and to go see the ballet with a few friends. We had a lot of fun at both events. (I actually made the vest the night before in about five hours--this seems to be my month for last-minute sewing projects...)

For the big Los Angeles holiday meetup, Fairytale Boutique hosted a tea party with Fumiko from Enchantlic Enchantilly at a tea room in Little Tokyo, and then a fun afterparty at the shop in the evening. I wanted to wear something with a more Christmas-y color scheme, and also wanted to wear something a bit Chantilly-inspired (since I don't actually own anything from her other than socks). I wasn't 100% happy with the coordinate since I didn't really have the right shoes, but it came together okay I think.

Finally, when I traveled up to a different state to visit my parents for Christmas, I brought along a simple, easy-to-pack coordinate for Christmas dinner. My extended family all thought it was nice, and I was pretty happy with how it worked together even though it was so simple.
