Here are some of the pics I got from the event plus pics of the goodies I got 8D
My co-ord for the day
Mmmm, cocktails :3
The wonderful guests of honour! I'm sorry this isn't a great pic of them but I was sat at a really awkward angle from them D:
Team drinking Mojitos in the middle of the day! We won the scavenger hunt!The prize is in a pic below!
On with the Fashion Show!!
What really surprised me about the above co-ord was the crown head dress. I personally really love them. However like all fashions, looks go in cycles and I think these went 'out of fashion' a few years ago. However I noticed in GLB earlier that Angelic Pretty is producing a crown head dress to go with Cinema Doll. Maybe they're making a come back? I do hope so because I want one!
I want this print to badly! Its called La Bibliotheque.
Same print different colourway
Now onto the goodies! I was a VIP so I got a goodie bag which came in the bag below.

The Scavanger Hunt prize!
here. I did take it out quickly to take a look and its wonderful quality and I'm looking forward to wearing it! I didn't want to disturb it again and take it out because I'm terrible at tangling wigs!
Today was just so very spectacular and great fun! I also got to try on a bonnet for the first time and found that they actually quite suit me to my delight! So next time I'm buying a piece I'm definitely going to have bonnets as an accessory on the brain! What was especially nice about the event was that in addition to the goods that JetJ and GLB bought for us to buy, there were also independent UK stores that were able to showcase their wares and for people to see in person and buy.
At the end the main event organiser, Kyra, got proposed to by her partner. It was so beautiful and I cried, as did everyone else! I wish them all the best for their future!
Thank you everyone who organised and attended for making this so special! Britain definitely did the International Lolita Community proud!
EDIT SUNDAY: I just found out I won the Illustration competition, so my artwork is going to be published in glb. I'm so happy :'D
P.S As with the V&A meet I shall post on here when others have uploaded their albums and blog posts!
