The day before the meeting I woke up very sick and I got even worse by now but I'm not the type to flake out, specially when I'm the one who came up with the idea. However I wanted to keep it simple, since I wasn't feeling well at all, so I didn't even wear a wig, which I kind of regret but I guess since it was a small, casual meeting it's excusable.
The other reason I wanted the girls to meet was to celebrate that we finally have "cold" weather here. It was really unexpected how the weather changed completely from one week to another, just when I was starting to accept that we were going to have no winter this year and trying to come up with light and comfortable outfits to adjust to our hot as hell climate...bam! We get 12 C average, which might not seem too low, but when you live in a tropical country and is used to 30 C it's cold enough.
Although I have four new, never worn by me, main pieces sitting in my closet I decided to wear Rose Dress-Up again, I wanted something very toned-down and elegant to match my new oxford shoes and brooch so the light pink and black combo was only natural.
The pictures ended up sloppy since I took them five hours after I got dressed when bows are not well placed anymore, skirt gets wrinkled and showing face is out of question. Tights had an interesting pattern that didn't show well on camera, hair hid the brooch, and as usual pictures didn't make outfit justice.
Skirt: Angelic Pretty
Bag: Angelic Pretty
Headbow: Le Carrousel
The place I suggested for us to go was Faire La Bombe, which I had visited a couple of weeks before, they have all types of éclairs, including savory ones. I ordered a green apple Italian soda, Caprese salad with a prosciutto and gruyère éclair and for dessert an almond éclair and a gold passion fruit one.
If the food was good? I'll never know. I'm sick to the point I couldn't taste anything, it's quite frustrating.
We took a few group pictures, unfortunately almost all of them were blurry but a guy at Faire La Bombe asked us if he could take our picture and then was kind enough to send us. I love the picture although it made me realize that I've gained some weight.

Ana Carolina also showed up later to join us but she was only there for the blurry pictures. Amy brought me the make-up I bought with her and Ana brought Annah's liquid lipsticks. We invited a few other girls who we needed to pick up things with but they couldn't make it.

I really enjoyed the mini meeting, it was my first time going out in Lolita with a small group and it's just as nice as going to a regular meet.
Update time: less than two months for Japan! Currently waiting for the invoice to pay for Fancy Paper Dolls tiered JSK in lavender and matching headbow, checking another dress out of my wishlist. probably the last one I'll buy before Japan and one of the dresses I'll be wearing there :)
