Yes, it was my birthday yesterday! I've received a lot of sweet birthday wishes and I had a pretty good day yesterday, even though I also had an exam x_x
I received my gift first thing in the morning! I already knew what my gift was (I ordered the Sugar Pansy special set OP, along with headbow and barette), but I also received a secret gift: a tea set and €20,-. More money to invest in lolita!
The main gift of course was the OP and accessories I received! I honestly couldn't wait until I could wear it so I wore it that day immediately. I also had an exam yesterday, so I decided to dress up for just that bit of extra luck. I didn't realize the OP is so short though, it's even shorter than my other AP dresses!
|It's way shorter than Candy Sprinkle! x_x|
I don't think it's great for lolita, honestly, unless you're really, really small. However, it's a cute summer dress and it fits really comfortably. I might trade it for the regular OP though, as it looks a bit wonky with a petticoat too. It doesn't feel lolita at all \(>_<)/
The print and design, however.. they're gorgeous! I love the cute pansies and ribbons that are on the print, and the color of the dress is a really pretty soft pink. It goes so well with the greens, purples and pinks in the print! I also really love the bodice of this OP!
|Isn't it cute? The bodice is my favorite so far!|
I surely got some attention at my exam, as I was the only one dressed in that much pink and frills ( ´ ▽ ` ). But I got used to that already when out in lolita anyways, so it wasn't a big deal to me! My exam went great, and I sure hope I made it. I took the CAE Cambrigde test, which basically means I speak English on a high level and it's great when you want to go and study abroad (like me). It was an exam with a total of about 4,5 hours though, six if you include breaks -__-
After the exam I went out for dinner with my parents, and we went to one of those restaurants where you get this huge list of food of which you can order for five rounds and order four dishes at the same time. I ate a lot of Ebi Tempura sushi and I even tried sesame ice!
I also received some gifts from friends, but the cutest has to be the cake I got from my friend Marlein, it's the cutest cake I've ever seen! Besides looking good, it also tastes delicious. So many snacks!
And the good news doesn't end here, because my Kira Kira Killer limited edition CD is also shipped! I chose the cheapest shipping option (I can't afford $20 for EMS, thats more expensive than the CD!) so it can take up to 12 weeks to arrive... oh well. I'm excited it's on it's way!
|These are the contents, the cd, a poster, a vinyl bag, a sticker and a raffle ticket! Picture found here|
I'll try to send the raffle ticket to Japan, as I do have an adress where the products you can win can be sent to. It would be great to win something! I hope I can win something!
I guess that sums up my birthday... quite a busy day! I enjoyed it nevertheless and I can't wait untill I'm celebrating my birthday with my friends. I'm a little sad that I can't attend Animecon this weekend though, but well, I can't change that. I hope everyone that is attending does have fun though!
