On November 2nd, there was an in-store novelty fair, lucky packs, and the release of the Royal Unicorn series!
At 5:30 AM there were already a lot of people in line camping out to get into the store early!
It was so chilly ٩(⌯꒦ິ̆ᵔ꒦ິ)۶ᵒᵐᵍ!
The store didn't open until 11:00AM...
but there were a lot of lucky packs. It got kind of crazy after 11:00AM once we all got inside since the store was filled with tons of lolitas! I hope everyone got what they wanted!
I kind of failed at taking pictures that day due to lack of sleep...
After a long day of waiting and shopping, my friends and I went to have a full afternoon tea at the Rotunda in Neiman Marcus.
Such a beautiful place!
So yummy and the tea was delicious Dammann Freres tea!
The chicken consumme and popover we got.
Our tea sandwiches, scones, and housemade sweets!
If there is interest, maybe next year I will try to plan a meet-up here the day before the tea party for those that are interested in two days of afternoon tea!
On November 3rd, the Angelic Pretty 3rd Anniversary Tea party was held at The Palace Hotel.
Many lolitas arrived early and I got to take pictures of many of the amazing outfits!
Who needs a brand fashion show when everyone is already dressed to perfection!?
The little details *_* Amazing!
Everyone looked like dolls!
Eventually we were ushered down a long hall way to
the tea party!
As we entered, we saw the event prizes waiting for us D8!
Our place setting had a ticket for the fashion contest voting!
After everyone was seated...
we started off with tea sandwiches for the table!
I think most people were too nervous to eat or wanted to
That is her real heair @.@! So pretty!

During this time AP USA shop staff also went around to collect the fashion contest votes! My vote was for number 36!
Musee du Chocolate and Royal Unicorn invasion!!!
The tea sandwiches were soon followed by dessert! There were mini Angelic Pretty cakes prepared for us! Pretty yummy once you take away the fondant! There were three different flavors of cake!
During the tea party there was also a game (ﾉ> ◇ <)ﾉ♪
There were hidden envelopes all around the room the tea party was in. All the lolitas were crawling on the ground, flipping tables, feeling behind wall panels to look for these envelopes! Inside the envelope is something that you need to match such as "someone wearing your favorite print". Once you get an envelope you find someone to claim the prize with! This is a lolita pairs game! @.@ Very hectic!
Here is a photo of the winning teams and their prizes!
We also took two group pictures!
I only took a photo of the group I wasn't in but more photos can be found on AP USA's facebook page !
Near the end of the party there was the long awaited raffle! I didn't get a photo of all the raffle winners and their prizes but I sat at a pretty lucky table!
When you don't even care because you never win... TT_TT. I know that feel...
Then the fashion contest winners were announced!
These are the two lolitas who came to win second and first place in the fashion contest:
Look at that detail!!!
#35 and #36!
With that the announcement of the fashion contest winner the event soon came to an end. After the event, the Angelic Pretty shop reopened with more lucky pack sets which meant more shopping! On our way out, everyone got an AP 2014 Calendar! Everyone who did not win in the raffle also got a Day Dream Carnival postcard!
A few of us ended up waiting in the hotel before heading over to the AP shop again. San Francisco is chilly at night!
Keep warm when you can!
I can't wait for the next Angelic Pretty party! A big thank you to Angelic Pretty USA for hosting this event! ♥ ♪( ´θ｀)ノ
Thank you for looking!
