No OTT outfits at Metamorphose Contest?! (not a request for votes ^^)

Hello my dear readers!

Today I want to talk about the Metamorphose A&W 2014 Contest. Currently the OTT trend is really popular and Sweet Lolita isn't the only substyle anymore that follows this trend. Classic and Gothic OTT
are even more popular today.

And for special occasions like such contests, Lolitas usually tend to choose their OTT outfits because they look most special and make you stand out more from the other people. But at this contest, basically noone entered with such an outfit.

Some examples of their newest collection

And I asked myself why. Maybe it's because I'm a huge AP fan that I always expect more overloaded outfits. But I think it's because Metamorphose has a huge "Old School", or should I better say, "Normal" Lolita  vibe. When I think of Metamorphose, the first outfit coming to my mind is a very basic one, where you wear a dark-colored skirt with a beret and a blazer. I think even if Metamorphose has sometimes crazy-looking dresses, it's just not the brand where you wear crazy outfits. Fans of Metamorphose like to wear Lolita in a casual way, in a further step I would even say it's the brand for Lolitas who wear this fashion everyday.


If you haven't done it already, you can take a look at the outfit contest here:

Facebook voting page

I'm very interested in what you are thinking about this topic? Do you agree or disagree with me?

I also participated in the contest. I don't know why but I'm happy that I can see my picture at the Metamorphose website, even if mine is the very last one of the contest ^_^'''''


Thank you for reading!
I would be happy to read your comments :)

My pink glitter christmas tree

Today I decorated my christmas tree! It's actually the first time that I have an own christmas tree in my small apartment, where I live since 4 years now. Of course my tree is pink with a lot of glitter *_*

I bought the tree on Ebay and the decoration at Nanu Nana.







Maybe you can remember that I bought some crazy christmas baubels 2 years ago. But I like the tree how it is right now. Everyhing matches perfectly together. So I don't think that I will add more baubels right now. But maybe I get bored of its simple look, than I will add my crazy stuff xD. I mean it isn't even december, most people haven't even thought about their christmas tree yet xD.

I know I'm quite early but I just love christmas and especially christmas decoration *_* And music, and food, and markets and.... how about you? Do you also start to celebrate it early?

Bonus pic: you can see my reflection in the baubels xD


Kind regards,
Miuko~ <3

Cream Soda at German Supermarket

Hello my dear readers~ <3

Today I found Cream Soda at the german REWE supermarket! For my international readers it may sound odd but many of my friends like Cream Soda and usually we only can buy it at asian supermarkets.

Tadaaa~



However it doesn't taste like the asian Cream Soda but like the one from Tesco in London! I personally looove the Tesco Cream Soda *___* But it is quite expensive, it cost 1,50€ per can (the Tesco one cost 1£ per 4 cans -.-) and it has many calories (the Tesco one has 1 calorie per can)... yeah did I mention that Tesco is my favourite supermarket in the world?! xD

In the first picture you can also see grape lemonade! I bought it at REWE too because I also never saw grape lemonade at german supermarkets, I always bought it at the asian supermarket. But I'm not 100% if we really don't have grape lemonade, I usually only go shopping at small supermarkets where they don't have such fancy stuff xD.

Btw here is the Cream Soda and grape lemonade I sometimes buy at the asian supermarket:


Well then guten Durst ^_~
Thank you for reading,
Miuko~ <3
