My Second Christmas arrived this week!! I received my Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Happy Pack and was so freakin excited once I got a glimpse inside that I actually gave myself a monster case of the hiccups. So much pink!!!
- Twinkle Lame Stripe Chiffon JSK in pink
- Aran Knitting Bunny Ear Cape in pink
- Collection Douce Chocolatier skirt in pink
As for the cape, it is going to be hard to even take it off I love it so much. I was eying it for so long but never bought it. Problem solved.
Well and the Douce Chocolatier skirt makes me a little sentimental. I was way over my budget when the NYC Baby store opened in the summer and was drooling over the JSK with this print that day. Now having the skirt makes me feel like I was able to step back in time, just a bit, and have a memento I missed out on previously. Problem solved.
- Alice and the Pirates tartan salopette in blue
- Baby blouse in white
- Alice and the Pirates stripe hair ribbon in blue
Someone mentioned on the Lolita Updates Facebook page that they were impressed how the Happy Packs were really well coordinated. I have to totally agree. These were not random selections from what I have seen but really pulled together packs.
Like so many others I got the Alice and the Pirates tartan salopette. I know most people are dumping theirs on Lace Market but I have to say it is super duper cute. Surprisingly it fits me but not in a flattering way sadly. However, it has me inspired to make something similar for this summer. I just adore the plaid print with the rickrack and lace trim – and its shorts!!
The blouse is standard issue and small so nothing surprising there. I might cut up the collar and cuffs and rework it into a cutsew blouse that fits me. Another thing I have wanted to try for sometime but haven’t had the courage. I have too many project already going for now, so this can wait a little longer.
Bottom line for this year’s fukubukuro is that I made out like a bandit!! Between this pack and the IW pack I got crowns, chocolate and tons of pink. Feeling pretty spoiled right now (｡･｀ω´･｡)
