|Classic coordinate -- dusty rose and burgundy paired with ivory!|
This past weekend, the Metroplex lolita group had a little meetup at a local sweets shop called Sweet Mix! This place sells elaborate crepes, waffles, bubble tea, and other scrumptious treats. I picked up some non-dairy bubble tea and chatted with both old and new faces -- this meetup had a huge turnout!
I wore one of my first-ever dresses from Bodyline. It's sort of a rosy pink color, and I sometimes have difficulty matching it with things, but as I was looking for my favorite brown heels, I saw these burgundy ones peeking out at me. Perfect! I grabbed them and this deep red purse and I was in business. I would have preferred to have red at least one other place in my outfit, but I didn't have a hair accessory that was more of a deep red. Next time!
I've also been dying to wear this blouse since I bought it a few weeks ago. The collar has beautiful pearls sewn in. It's hard to believe it's from Forever 21 (except for how sheer it is).

|Shout out to Meci for taking these great photos for me!|
After eating our fill of sweet snacks, we traveled outside and spread out blankets to set out our undesired items and swap and sell! I wound up scooping up a few goodies -- a new skirt, wrist cuffs (which I am wearing in these photos!), a cute handmade alpaca pin and the cutest shrug ever. I also managed to sell a little bit, hooray! Like I've said before, I really see my lolita style shifting to be a little more classic than super saccharine sweet, and selling off my old items is helping me transition over.
|Our group -- a few people had just left, so this wasn't all of us. Everyone looks great!|
It was really great to see everyone, as well as met some new people! I am moving so soon that I may not see many of these ladies (and gentleman) again for a while. It's a little bittersweet, but I am happy that our community has grown so large in the time I've been here.
