Sorry about the brief hiatus; I have been so busy with school and such. Finally, I can tell you about my first Lucky Pack! I was lucky enough to join a group order for the Metamorphose Winter Lucky Pack (2013/2014). I have never purchased a Lucky Pack before because I was always nervous about getting items that I disliked or did not fit me. (And I do not think I am very lucky… I almost never win raffles, giveaways, and the blind bags I have purchased in the past have been disappointing.)
In any case, I do not regret getting the Meta Lucky Pack! My friend Emily ordered three Lucky Packs (total cost: 34,300 yen), and then we split up the items among us. There were three of us, so we each got a full Lucky Pack in the end, but we mixed and matched items to best suit our tastes.
All three of us got the same exact white blouse, but we each got different skirts and accessories.
Here is what I got:
- A beautiful bordeaux skirt with an all-over print and a lace trim.
All three of the skirts had the same exact lace trim. My friend Emily observed that none of the skirts have a border print or border detail, other than the lace trim. Perhaps the skirts were made with surplus fabric. All three of the skirts have fully elastic waistbands. In my opinion, this is great because the skirts will fit a wide range of sizes (and I can eat lots of food when I wear this skirt!).
- A white blouse.
I have not tried on this blouse yet, but my friend Lisa told me that the fabric is quite sheer. So I think this blouse would work well under a JSK, but it may not be so great with a skirt unless I wear a camisole under or a vest on top (or both). I wish the fabric was more opaque! The style looks very nice and versatile though; I think this blouse would work for a variety of lolita substyles.
- A black bow hair barrette.
- A crown cameo necklace.
- Black socks with a trump-themed print.
I love these socks but I have no idea how to coordinate them yet. XD I really want a trump-themed skirt or dress to go with these socks. I think I can coordinate these socks with a plain black skirt and black blouse though, if I use some red and gold accessories.
- A zippered cream tote bag
