Event : Organisers' brunch pre-Enchanted

Hello ! How are you my dear readers ? How I am ? Exhausted for sure, haha ! That was maybe the toughest but yet the most amazing week-end I've ever spent ! I guess this report won't be as formal as usual : since I was one of the main organiser of Enchanted, I didn't really spend my time enjoyed the event but more running from on side of the venue to the other with my back-bag on.

I thought it could be great if I had pictures inside of the venue before the event begins, but well, I had just before leaving the — now useful — idea to take pictures also near our hotel. Happened that I didn't have any time during the event, so I guess that was quite a nice move to take pictures before I run and sweat all around the venue. (What ? Would I exaggerate ? Not a bit.)

We woke pretty early (too early for my own good) and left the hotel around 10:30AM so we could go brunching with lovely people ! Marie and I had to brunch with the other organisers, while Diana and Mathilde had to also have lunch pretty early in order to go to the models' rehearsal that began at the venue. Finally the brunch we eat at was roomy enough to let Mathilde et Diana eat with us~ (thought they were not at our table ;___;)

Diana as beautiful as usual. The is the real lady among us.
I just can't get enough of the photograph on the left. 

Lili was sharing a room with us at the hotel~ But she eat with other people attending to the event :D
My perfect (and sunny) Marie, wearing her J&J's Crucifixion for the first time !!
Can you see the Crown of Thorns she had as a headdress ?

We eat at Merchant of Bishopsgate, near Liverpool Street Station. It was indeed a very delicious restaurant : I took a whole typical English brunch, just I what needed and wanted ! As I sat with Marie, Harly, Bloody and Lunie, the other members or the team arrived just in time in order to have the quickest brunch ever, haha~ We had only one hour to fulfill our stomaches before going to the venue. So, we took the opportunity to make some pictures before being served~ Let me introduce you to a part of the Street Fashion Europe team that have been working hard for months now ☆~(ゝ。∂)(Unfortunately I don't have a picture of everyone there, and some organisers weren't here (´A`。) )

Oxana from Russia ! Her husband and herself were filming all the week-end,
I guess we will soon have an amazing video to share about first SFE's event ! 
Oxana (Russia), Kyra (England/U.K.) and Oh Tralala (Germany)
Carmilla (Italia and Finland) and Michaela (England/U.K.)
Lunie (Belgium/France), Bloody (France)
Vief (Belgium/Netherlands/U.K.), Lunie, Bloody and Harly (Germany)

That was a super fast brunch but still had a lot of fun ! It was great to talk about things and others before going to hard work ! Since we were altogether, Marie, Bloody, Lunie, Diana and I it was also a great time to talk a bit about French Café, since we all are in the main team. If you still not know about French Café and its Garden Party coming on July 7th (just after the Japan Expo), you should totally check our ☆ Facebook Event ☆ ( ノ^ω^)ノ゚

You now know what's happening before Enchanted... Eggs and bacon. Well, not quite : it was a way to relax altogether before the H-hour. I feel like all my time was dedicated to Enchanted during this journey, and I'm still super happy about it. Couldn't spend a better week-end (except if I had one or two days more available in order to visit the city and enjoy London with my friends ;__;). But well, I knew what it would be like, and still not disappointed, at all ☆~(ゝ。∂)I wouldn't do it a different way, not for all the world. 

We went then as fast as we could to the venue. Some girls were already ready for the rehearsal, booths were getting set up, and SFE team was running everywhere. Doing the VIP bags, teach the choreography for the fashion show, answering all the questions, preparing the entrance, that was quite a preparation ! I'm now leaving you with some super secret (not so secret) pictures from Marie, before the doors opened with some bonus pictures, because I know you love them~~

See you soon for the posts about Enchanted !! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

EGL : January and February monthly themes !

Hello dears~ How are you ? I'm having a holiday break and while I was supposed to study, I'm currently not studying at all (yay !), taking time photographing outfits, blogging, watching tv shows, rolling desperately on my floor, some fun stuffs. I swear I'm going to study, starting on Thursday, that's good day for studying.

While usually I don't take part a lot in EGL monthly themes, I feel like the past two months' themes have been very funny to do. January theme is, like usual, wardrobe theme ! I did it last year (with very crappy pictures.) but wasn't really happy about it. I took a looot of time this January, I posted late, but at least I'm happy about it. I'm not going to post it again on my blog since it was already a pain to upload and lay out every pictures on LiveJournal. But if you are curious to watch it, please follow this link (or click on the picture above, because I'm such a talented blog-designer)♡

Let's talk about real business. February's theme was Dress me up !

« We've all had a day (or two, or twenty) where we just can't seem to come up with a perfect coordinate and longed for a lolita stylist. Well, it's time to change that, and let a member of EGL dress you up! Share your closet and wait for one of our fashion-forward members to come up with a stunning coordinate for you. We'll do a big reveal post at the end of the month for all participants to share their amazing coordinates! »

Doesn't it sound fun ? I was paired up with Rie Chan, a lovely classical-gothic lolita from Antwerp (I think so ?). Out respective styles aren't the same, I think it's part of the challenge — and also big part of the fun. I told her it seems difficult to do another style than sweet lolita with a wardrobe like mine, so she came up with a gothic inspired coordination using sweet/classical items ! What a clever idea~ 

I am wearing : Dress : MILK — Blouse : Angelic Pretty 
Headdress, bag, socks : BtssB — Vest : AatP — Shoes : André

What do you think about it ? I haven't thought about putting my vest on a dress ! With the black blouse it's looking like I'm wearing the jacket, I really love the effect. More than a lolita outfit, it makes me feel about a classy-but-cute casual outfit ! 

Rie Chan also suggested a second outfit. Sweeter, it really matched my usual style. I guess she guessed well the feeling of my wardrobe, haha~ It really could be an outfit I could wear casually. Well... I'm even pretty sure I've already worn this outfit, minus the blouse. I have to say the blouse wasn't really matching the whole outfit, but my wardrobe pictures weren't that clear about colours (and the blouse didn't really look like it has princess sleeves on the picture of my wardrobe post).

I now can't wait to see Rie Chan's outfit~ I did my best to match her wardrobe with some kind of classical-royal outfit in all bordeaux x cream colours. I will show you her outfit (or my outfit ? Don't know...) as soon as she posts it (and if she allows me to).

Time for bonus pictures ! Thank you for reading ! I will soon be back with the second part of Frock On's report and with some posts about (not so) mysterious but ultra-cute indie Japanese Brands !

Stay tuned (^_^)ノ
