I feel like I'm slipping up on my positive thinking for the new year already, and I've had a few minor set backs. Still, all I can do is keep ploughing forward and getting things done.
Yesterday was good because I got up really early for once, and met up with a dear friend for breakfast at our village caff! After that, I went home and whiled away a few hours watching old WWE episodes with my brother, before the doorbell finally rang. Yes! My Meta package!
I ordered the Sweet Cherry jumperskirt in cream (it's yellow, basically). It was actually something of a dream dress of mine for a little while now, but I finally plucked up the courage to buy it two days before Christmas, as a late present to myself.
It is made of a really soft, lightweight cotton which will be perfect for the summer months, but will still be fine should I want to brave cooler weather in it. Layers are everything! The print has a lot of colours, even navy blue, so I have a feeling this will be easily "coord-able". I often find that Meta's prints have a retro vibe to them, and this one is no exception. It's quite long, too, but luckily the straps are adjustable so I'll probably fiddle around with them so the bodice of the dress sits in just the right place.
The print has not only cherries, but blueberries and raspberries! Plus there are daisies, gorgeous lace bows, and even a lace print with Meta's swans becoming part of the pattern. I love the fact it has a striped background, as it adds a bit more interest than a block colour would.
I am so glad I bought it, and seeing as it was in the 50% off sale, it turned out to be quite the bargain, even with the extortionate customs fees factored in. Definitely a great way to start off a new year of lolita!
Here's the review vlog I did of it, where I go into a bit more detail about the ordering process and why I love the dress so much!
Thanks for looking and watching! I would love to know your thoughts on this dress in the comments! ❤
