Last Saturday, the 23rd of February, I organized a meet up in my town. All the Lolita’s living in or around were welcome to join. A lot of people turned up which was great. The more the merrier!
The plan was to meet up at the station, get some delicious bubble tea, have a small scale high tea at the Hema, take pictures in town and later on retreat to my house to have dinner and treats.
I had originally planned to wear a Gothic Lolita outfit that day, but I yearned to wear something bright and colourful so I chose my Sugary Carnival JSK in lavender with a matching coloured blouse instead. After having read the Toothless tiger’s blog about old school Lolita fashion I decided to rock my old school head piece. I had won it at the Fly away fashion meet last year and I was eager to try it out.
It was a cold day but lucky it didn’t snow or rain. A day later we would have been snowed in again.
I arrived at the station to already behold a jolly gathering of frills. Whilst waiting for everyone to arrive we were asked to be on a picture several times. We were quite the attraction. Once everyone arrived we headed to the bubble tea place. It was a lot of fun to walk through the busy town with everyone. We got looks from everywhere and a lot of people seemed to like our presence.
At the bubble tea place we all chose a flavor tea with jelly and popping boba. I had strawberry flavor, my favorite. My boyfriend came to join us too. He also loves bubble tea.
We headed to the Hema around three o’clock and we were glad to be welcomed by the warm cafe. Normally it isn’t possible to reserve a table there. It’s a come and go system but because I asked so nicely they did make an exception just for us. When we sat down we were even served which was too cute. I really didn’t expect that.
The high tea was small but delicious and judging by everyone’s faces they enjoyed it just as much. We laughed, sung and took pictures. We had a really nice time and around half past 4 we were preparing to leave to take some pictures outside.
Once outside we were bombarded by groups of kids wanting to be in a picture with us. We didn’t mind so we just enjoyed the act.
After taking pictures we still had some time so we browsed some shops, among which the Claire’s. It was the first time I had shopped there in Lolita and it was hilarious trying on the funny shaped glasses. I ended up buying a remarkable pair of specs with a mustache attached to it. I simply couldn’t stop laughing whilst walking about the shop. I already see many spectacular moments with them in the future.
We then headed to the station where we said goodbye to Rosalynn and Tamara and made our way to my house.
My mum had prepared everything at home while we were in town and I was stunned when I beheld the table she decorated. It was simply gorgeous. Everyone was so enthusiastic about the decoration and my mum’s shop too.
Shortly after our arrival I suggested a tour to my room. I always enjoy seeing someone’s room for the first time. It felt as if we were in a museum. There were lots of auww’s and ahhh’s when everyone beheld my Lolita wardrobe.
When down stairs again we all had a lovely feast of rice and chicken curry and as a dessert cupcakes and sorbet ice creams.
Everyone was having a really good time and so was I. I received a little gift from my friend Sanniya which was really sweet of her to do.
At nine o’clock everyone left for the bus. I walked with them and cuddled them goodbye when the bus arrived.
It was an amazing day and I had a lot of fun. Tired as I was I simply couldn’t wait for the next meet to come.
Thanks for reading and take care.
