LBC: Winter Lolita Look

lbc

This week’s theme is a Winter Lolita Look! I wish I had more time to wear lolita, but I’ve been super busy with academics. I will share my look for my very first International Lolita Day Meetup! The winter ILD meetup in Boston was a lot of fun. ^_^ I went with a friend from my local community who was kind enough to give me a ride there.

It was super cold, but I was wearing an underskirt, my favorite multi-layered petticoat, tights, knee socks, and fleece bloomers. While traveling, I also wore my poofy (non-lolita, and I think it’s ugly, but it is super warm and New England-friendly) jacket and leg warmers. I also wore my winter boots because the weather was terrible, and I changed into my nice shoes when we arrived in Boston.

Here is the coordinate rundown:

[Crown] Crowns of the Kingdom

[Wig and Lashes] Gothic Lolita Wigs / Dolluxe

[Blouse] Dear Celine

[JSK] Innocent World

[Necklace] Vintage

[Gloves] Vintage (from a flea market in Paris! :D)

[Socks] Offbrand

[Shoes] Offbrand

Shout-out to my friend Lisa who made the fleece bloomers for me as a lovely present last year! ❤

For my winter looks, I love wearing wigs because they actually do keep my head very warm. It’s like wearing a winter hat, but better! I also love layering up things, so it’s great that I can wear warm tights under my socks.

As for winter lolita looks in the future, I would love to wear a warm and fancy fur cape! And maybe a winter hat that works for lolita? I did do this look with a warm winter hat before:

I love this winter hat! It’s a vintage item I found in a thrift shop. I pinned a matching navy flower to it! (And I’m wearing a wig under the hat for extra warmth. That’s the same exact wig I wore for ILD, in fact… What a coincidence!)

How do you stay warm in the winter while wearing lolita? Are there any cute accessories you love to wear with your winter coordinates?

CamoEyes: Aqua 3 Tone Contacts

Today, I am going to review a pair of lenses that was sponsored to me from CamoEyesCamoEyes sells non-prescription colored contact lenses, ranging from more naturally styled lenses to crazy special effects lenses. This company is located in the United Kingdom, but they ship internationally.

CamoEyes uses regular mail service via Royal Mail to ship their packages. The packaging for their products is fantastic!

DSC_2179_Fotor_CollageInside the bubble mailer, there were two boxes with the contact lens vials inside. The boxes kept the vials safe and secure! Here are the contents of the boxes:

They sponsored the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts and the Red Mesh Contacts. Both of these lenses do not give enlargement; they are not circle lenses. These are colored contact lenses. Contact lenses from CamoEyes are not medical devices; they will not correct your vision. These lenses are great for people with 20/20 vision who don’t want to enlarge their eyes! They give vibrant color without the circle lens enlargement. These lenses are also great for people who love wearing their glasses but want to change up their eye color. I know sometimes I love wearing my own glasses!

Instructions

These instructions came inside each of the contact lens boxes. I think it’s great when companies send out instructions for the use and care of their lenses! It’s important to read contact lens instructions to make sure you understand how to take care of them. Remember, your health and safety comes first! Lenses from CamoEyes may have different lifespans, so be sure to read the box, vials, and instructions carefully. Make sure you know when your lenses expire! This goes for any contact lens, not just these ones.

In this post, I will focus on the Aqua 3 Tone Contacts.

I love the pretty aqua/teal color of these lenses! The life span of these lenses is 90 days after opening their vials. These lenses are mostly aqua, but they also have bits of black and gold to give the lenses an interesting design. Even though these are not enlarging lenses, the black limbal ring defines the eyes and gives the illusion that the eyes are bigger. I always love lenses with a solid limbal ring!

I have bad eyesight… so if I am usually seen wearing my trusty old glasses. I hope my eyesight doesn’t get any worse… I don’t want to switch to a higher prescription again! In any case, I love how vibrant my eyes look even with my glasses on. My normal eye color is a very dark brown that looks black in most lighting, so this bright aqua is a welcome change!

For this makeup look, I wanted to go for something more natural, something that would be easy to wear everyday. To be honest, I do not wear makeup that often. I’m very busy, so if I have time to wear makeup on an average school day, I only wear eyeliner. But more often than not, I don’t put anything on my face other than moisturizer. For this look for CamoEyes, I used foundation, neutral brown eyeshadow, black crayon eyeliner, black mascara, and a red lip tint. I never use mascara, but I wanted to try it out since my lashes are almost non-existent. I love the way false lashes look on me, but they can be a hassle. I hope you like this toned-down everyday makeup look!
