I'm going to see a tea house this week~! Either Thursday or Friday, but I digress. It is in Livermore and I'll probably be planning a gathering for tea later this month. So my question to you; Would anyone be able to attend for, say, July 21st or 22nd? ( Collapse )
Hello lolitas! Happy summer to all you East Coast US lolis, and happy season to everyone else. Today my family and I made an unexpected visit to Metuchen, NJ, where I got to visit one of the most lolita-ish places I've ever been to: the Brass Lantern, a Victorian/craft/pretty things store that would make a great place to start a meetup! In fact...hmmm....well anyway, I just wanted to share my pictures with you. I didn't visit in lolita, so it's just pictures of the store. However, I believe any lolita would have had a ball just seeing the inside of the place! If this isn't allowed, however, tell me and I'll delete it. ( Collapse )

Hey everybody, I know I haven't posted an update on this for a while, but I am still doing my shopping service, and I'm taking orders again for anyone who is interested! Here are the rules and instructions, feel free to post any questions after reading them.
For one reason or another, I really like vertical floral prints on dresses, skirts etc. I've yoinked a friend's doll for a bit, and have two nice vertical prints, but I'm not entirely sure what to do with them and was hoping that I could get some inspiration from you guys =)
What have you found to be the best looking and easiest way to make an applique on a skirt/dress? I was thinking of screenprinting or making a fabric applique to sew on, but I am a noob sewer so wanted to ask first!
Now that it's summer (for most of us), for those of you who are worried about keeping your lolita clothes fresh, as the next step up from just wearing a regular shirt underneath, I recommend using dress shields as part of the solution. These are garment additions that are kind of more old school - I think that people use them to keep uniforms clean. They are typically pads that are placed around the underarms of the garment to keep it from getting that unpleasant soak-through from perspiration.
I tested out a 'valara' from Kleinert's under a new blouse and it did the job through an entire day including a concert at AX2007. Watch out as they seem to run pretty big though.
Can you buy stuff off the Swimmer website if you do not live in Japan?? I really want to buy some stuff from there!! If not, is there anyone willing to buy me some stuff from Swimmer?? Thank you! -M. <3
Hey ladieseses. I am in the Toronto and I visited Kensington Market today. There's a store called Twylite on Kensington that sells a lot of K-Star stuff. If you don't know K-Star they're a cheaper lolita brand. Most of the stock they had was of the h.naoto rip-off variety but there were some sweet lolita and shiro dresses. The prices were around $50 for punk skirts and blouses and $100 for dresses which I think is pretty standard for K-Star.
They also had a bunch of crinolines (but I think every vintage store in Kensington does) and Blythe bags.
It's not Japanese brand quality but if you're looking for cheaper lolita stuff in Toronto, that's where it's at!
I'm surprised that I haven't seen any AX posts yet, so here goes!
I meet so many new lolitas at AX and I know a great number of them are on EGL so hopefully we can all touch base here. It would be fun to hear how everyone's experiences at AX turned out to be. If you were at any of the events, or met me or other lolitas at AX, please introduce yourselves .^_^.
I'm still decompressing from my trip, I came back with almost 500 photos in my camera which need to be sorted and touched up so expect a big photo post in the near future. In a nutshell, here is how it went for me... ( Collapse )
