Getting ready

So as I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off getting ready for my mini-meet today, I was wondering how everyone else got ready for going out in lolita. Do you plan your outfit the night before? Is it an all day affair? Do you just throw something on minutes before you walk out the door? Or do you get out of bed looking like a perfect princess automatically? Do you concentrate on getting ready and only getting ready? Or do you get a lot of distractions along the way? And yeah, I mean this for more of a meetup/special occasion sort of event instead of just wearing lolita everyday/going to work/etc.


Personally I try and plan my outfit and hair and everything the whole week upcoming to the event. I think out in my head what I have, what will look best together, how I'm going to do my hair.. and then the day of it all flies out the window. Usually I'm listening to music as I rush to straighten my hair, iron my clothes, flip through skirt after jsk after op trying to find something that I don't go "I just wore that" or "It looks horrible on me" in my closet. Finally I find something that works that is nothing like I originally planned, I have given up on my hair and just left it to its own imagination after doing the best I could for it, and I'm either running out the door as my ride is beeping its horn... or sitting around for two hours because I got ready waaay too early in my excitement, like I am now xD And all during getting ready I'm usually stopping every five minutes or so to go check my email or make sure someone hasn't IMed me with last minute details.


So, EGL, how do you go about getting ready?
