Looking for local community + short introduction

Hey! As this is my first post to the community (and first post on LiveJournal), I'm sorry if I do something wrong ^^''
I'm Layla from the Netherlands, pleasure to meet you ~ I've been lurking on the net and reading and observing for about a year, and I have been lurking on this comm as well :3 You know, looking at outfits and such, researching brands, and the basic structure of an outfit, so that I'm well informed when I start.  I currently do not have the possibility to be one, but as soon as I am able to I will! :D

Which gets me to the following question: Is there any local community here in the Netherlands? I've visited the Dutch Elegant Lolita page, but that one is kinda dead unfortunately. I'm just curious so when I get the chance to dress Lolita I can hopefully meet up with some others ^^

Oh! That reminds me. In my hometown (Apeldoorn) I was walking outside around Americahal where Boekenfestijn was being held, and I saw a Sweet Lolita on a bike. I thought it was best not to talk to her, especially as she was.. well.. riding a bike (I was walking and crossing the road there) and it looked like she was in a hurry. I was delighted though to see that it seemed like there were Lolitas near me. Perhaps.. if you recognize yourself in this story, let me know? ^^

Anyways, have a good day I guess ;P

There is a dutch lolita facebook, you have to ask permission to become a member, but as you are from the Netherlands you probably will be allowed to join the group.

Thank you so much ^^ I was searching before on FB, but I didn't seem to find anything.. now I just typed Dutch Lolita and I found it .. so stupid XD

I wasn't aware of this one myself, but just joined. Thank you, borelely :)

Hi Layla and welcome to the community :) I'm in the Netherlands since not so long, but I also haven't had a chance to meet with other dutch lolitas yet.. I'm aware that local lolis are organizing a tea party at the end of this month called Sparkly Winter Night! Would be nice if you could go! :D

Hi there! That's awesome, that you've come to live here ~
Do you know some Dutch? ^^

I would love to go, but I'm low on funds, and just like I said in the post, I'm not dressing in Lolita yet so it would be pretty weird to go to a Lolita teaparty not wearing Lolita..
But thank you anyway~

Subscription for that tea party is now closed, but there are smaller meetings frequently :)

Yes, I do speak Dutch, but I'm not sure if you're allowed to talk in Dutch on here (since this community is international and most won't understand what we're saying). Good luck with sorting your first coord (it's always so exciting!) and if you need to know some cheap places where to shop it or any other questions, let me know :)

There is the facebook page, as well as the dutch forum

the forum registration requires an email to be send, you just have to let them know that you are a honest person interested in the fashion, not some weirdass creep with a fetish or bad intentions (and the only ones seeing the mail are the admins, don't worry if you don't want everyone to know what you write)

As others have posted we have a facebook page for which you need permission to join. If you have a photo of yourself as a profile picture and your from The Netherlands your all set.
Also the livejournal page isn't used that much I believe, there is also a Dutch lolita forum but that one is also kinda dying as all of the action is taken to the facebook group.

I'm also a lolita from the Netherlands, as others said there is a FB page. If you want to join a meet, end of the month there is a tea party and at the end of January me and a friend organize a Rococo high tea in Utrecht ;D So, there are meets you can come to!^^

Hope to see you around some time, it's always fun to meet new lolitas!

I think multiple persons have misunderstood my post, sorry ^^''
I do not dress in Lolita yet, because there are many things that make it impossible to do that, so I can't go to meets yet because I would be out of place xD
But I really want to in the future! I don't know if that will be in the near future or not, but I'll be working on it ^^
Anyway, thanks for replying ~
