An overview - 2014 style!

As 2014 is over, so it's time to look back on the past twelve months. 2014 was a year of great meetings, even though I had to miss a few, a closet expansion, and year full of coords with wigs!
Where I was still searching for my lolita style last year, I think I can say I have found it now. I'm a classic/sweet lolita! :)

Wardrobe changes
This year I got rid of the rest of my Bodyline items, except for my first dress, socks, and wig. I have bought quite a few brand main pieces, including a gorgeous Meta JSK,  a skirt and JSK from AATP, and items from Innocent World. I also invested in items from indie brands like Moss Märchen, Little Lolita Boutique, Summer Tales, and Ophelia without Eye. As I have found the lolita style that fits me most, I decided to sell the Milky-chan set that I bought last year.

In the future I will be looking for more dresses that fit the classic/sweet style that I enjoy wearing, although I might also look at more classic dresses!

Meet ups and events
This year I had to miss a few meets due to personal circumstances, but luckily I was able to attend a few really cool meets and events. The first event I attended was the Frills and Fairytales meet in Breda. The high tea was delicious and it was a lot of fun to dress up as a fairy tale character! The next meet was a shop day at Summer Tales boutique, which was very fun as well. The biggest lolita event I attended this year was Behind the Mask. This was also the event that took the most preparation, as I spent months putting my outfit together! I also attended the Summer Meet and a swop meet, and another shop day at Summer Tales Boutique.

I've also gone to visit F.A.C.T.S with my friend Katie, and we had a lot of fun there! I've also been out and about to a market and a museum in lolita, so the occasions to dress up were very diverse! :)

Top ten outfits
Just like last year, I want to give you an overview of my favorite outfits of the past year. But there is quite a difference from last year's top ten. This year, most of my outfits included wigs, as I finally dared to go out in them! They are also less of a mumble jumble of styles, and I think they are more consistent! :)

So... What's next?
I had plans to move out by the end of 2015, but my boyfriend and I are trying to buy into a new build project, so I will be living with my mother until the end of this year or so... This means that I have more time to save up money, but it also means some compromises, as I might have to start paying my mortgage already. So my wishlist will not be very long this year!
  • A long petticoat to go with my Innocent World JSK. I still have to buy it. This item has been on my wishlist for two years already, haha. I'm lucky that Summer Tales Boutique has become an official Innocent World dealer, so Katie should be able to get it for me this year! ^^
  • A OP from Summer Tales Boutique. A little while ago I discovered the most beautiful fabric in Katie's stash and I really want a pretty dress out of that! 
I hope to sell the items I have up for sale, so that I can use that money to invest in the items listed above. And otherwise, I'll have to save up for them! ^^

Another goal I have set for myself is to become more active in the Dutch lolita community. I've already taken the first steps to do so. I'm organizing my first meet and I've become one of the mods of the Dutch Lolita Sales FB page. I would love to be involved in the organization of some other meets as well! It's fun to do so and it's a great opportunity to meet more people in my own comm! :)
