Lolita around the world: Paris

Firstly, let me just say a big thanks to Jeanne (la_mome_neant, Julie (dismal_carnival, Gabrielle (addictive_sugar, Caroline (calinh and Lucie (lsirial for making this meet possible. You have made my stay in Paris absolutely wonderful.

Paris is the first stop for my personal project, "Loli around the world". As some of you might have already know, I am starting this project to meet lolitas all over the world and the Paris meet has been really really successful.



I first met up with Julie and Jeanne for lunch at the nice japanese restaurant in Bastille. I didn't have any pictures of our food or us eating though.

And what is a loli meet in Paris without going to Baby, the stars shine bright?

Julie, Jeanne and the lovely salesperson in Baby~

There was this Marie Antionette One-piece that I loved so much~ I would've bought it straightaway if it was in pink, although the red one was also lovely. I couldn't resist trying it on.

In my own clothes, photowhoring and babywhoring.

Gabrielle and Caroline joined us later in the store. :D
On a side note, there was another male salesperson there and he treated us to some strawberry yogurt drink. That was very sweet of him.

We headed to Starbucks later for a drink.

Julie (an even bigger baby whore than me~ lol~) and Gabrielle posing with their gifts~!!
Yes~!! I made little crowns for everyone for being so kind. I hope they like it~

Caroline with her crown, she has double eyelids and brown eyes to die for~

We headed down to Harajuku, where we met Lucie there. She was in a beautiful gingham dress which she loli-fied herself. There was like 4m worth of lace on the dress.
Unfortunately for me, Harajuku was closed. T___T
We headed to Boddywood instead. And I bought the skirt that Julie was wearing cause I loved it so much. It was more expensive definately but it was also on 30% sale so it eases the pain a little bit.

We headed down to alot more places after that; Junku (the Japanese bookstore), Galleries LaFayette (for Hello Kitty stuff).

And last photo for the post~!

Thank you my lovely Parisian lolitas for being so kind to me. I certainly hope to meet everyone again. :)

Some other random things

  • Parisians do stare at people wearing lolita, but they mean no harm.

  • Some of them walk by and say comments like "princess", "lovely", "cute". We even had sales person saying "kawaii" to us when we were walking around in Galleries Lafayette.

  • Random people can just strike up conversations with us by the way they dress which I think is amazing because in Singapore everyone just stares.

  • Lolita shoes are not made for cobberstone pavements.

  • Long-sleeved cutsews are too hot for summer.

  • It is very expensive to be a lolita in Europe

  • There's only a small number of lolitas in Paris itself. But Baby store's items are sold out very quickly cause of regular patronage and tourists.




That's it for my Paris report~!! I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed myself there.
