Last winter the NYC girls celebrated the bi-annual International Lolita Day at the Rose House, dressed head to toe in their finest, assuming their rightful place as princesses.
This time however, we will be switching it up. A different place, and a different theme.
"Kings’ Carriage House, at 251 East 82nd Street, New York City, has until recently been know only by word of mouth.
Since it opened in 1994, the restaurant has been receiving increasing acclaim...
Proprietors Elizabeth King and Paul Farrell have sought to recreate the elegant hospitality of a European manor house in this intimate two-story establishment. Gilded paintings, crystal chandeliers and antique furnishings are all part of the aristocratic atmosphere. Expert staff flawlessly provide an exceptional dining experience indulging each guest with romance, charm and warm hospitality.”
Join us on December 4th in the King's Carriage House's Mandalay Room for a gathering that is... perhaps a bit darker than what most are usually accustomed to.
This particular theme will be gothic-centered. Whether you are going for a darker, classic doll look, or going Atelier-Boz style, this is definitely the place to do it. Meet up with the new or catch up with the old at this afternoon tea party, and join us for discussions, raffles and other games.
Seats are $50.00 each, tax and gratuity included, for a full afternoon tea meal consisting of a variety of tea sandwiches, scones and cream, tea, and dessert. There will be a 'deposit' option for those who can't pay the full amount immediately, but want to hold seats.
Repeating the last two years, there will also be the White Elephant gift exchange. All guests are expected to bring a gift, priced between 9-25 dollars for entry. (This is to ensure that no one gets left out and everyone goes home with something.) All the presents must be already wrapped and a secret to everyone else. Unfamiliar with the game?

Also, guests are welcome to exchange personal gifts, Christmas cards, and the like :3
Dress Code: Gothic lolita or a darker classic look preferred. Examples of color schemes: blacks, darker reds, "Mana blue", jewel tones, royal purple, wine, dark blue, white, etc. Certain themes such as pirate, hime, a dark classic oriental style encouraged as well.
Non-Lolitas: Nicely put together outfits, may it be Steampunk, Neo-Victorian, Goth. Anything that fall under Himegyaru or a dressy "Agejo" style are also acceptable. For a casual outfit, I suggest nice dresses and or slacks/blouses.
Things that are not acceptable include:
Since this is a strictly formal occasion, things considered "casual lolita" and "guro-lolita" are not allowed, for obvious reasons. No punk lolita unless it's nicely coordinated. Deconstructed or ero styles (unless done tastefully, consult me about whether or not your outfit is acceptable!) No cosplay, maid costumes, vinyl, neon, whiteface, ripped fishnets, dusty/beat up jackets, tennis shoes, miniskirts, flip flops, T-shirts, things of that nature. No anti-religious items. This is to ensure maximum comfort for all guests.
If you are bringing a guest, they must follow the dress code as well!
If you are confused or concerned you can contact me through PMs or on my personal journal and I will answer your questions to the best of my ability. If you need help putting your outfit together, I will be more than glad to offer my assistance. I want everyone to have a great time, and I don't want to have to turn people away!
