Annual Lolita Chocolate Meet | Angelic Pretty's Chess Chocolate Coordinate

The annual chocolate meet for the Adelaide lolita community is always a big one. It is usually held around Easter, and everybody puts on their favourite chocolate prints, we meet up some where and you guessed it – eat a lot of chocolate. This year was no different. The time and date was set, and we went and took over the top floor of Koko Black for the afternoon.

As some of you who have been reading my blog for a little while might have guessed, when it comes to anything chocolate related my go to print is Chess Chocolate by Angelic pretty. It was the first brand dress I ever owned, and the first print I managed to collect the entire set for (I have everything – blouse, bonnet, bow, socks). To this day it is still one of my favourite dresses, so of course I had to wear it out. I decided I would wear the head bow this time, as I wore the same outfit to last years Chocolate meet only with the bonnet. (hey, its a good coordinate, and I say if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!)

The group sat down and ordered together, and everyone blended in with their surroundings perfectly 😛 There were so many delicious looking sweet things that people ordered, but I went for this glorious looking cake.

I can never move past anything that is salted caramel flavour, and today was no different. This was a salted caramel mouse with a flourless chocolate cake in the middle. It had a piece of toffee leaning on the side of it, and when they brought it to the table the waitress poured hot caramel sauce down it, like a slide. I was in heaven, and yes it tasted as good at is looked.

All hyped up on sugar, we all left the cafe. It was a busy Saturday so we were stopped by a lot of people for photographs. We eventually got sick of it and disappeared up to the top floor of regency arcade to escape. We were all being a little bit silly, and I got a great bunch of photo’s of “Lolita’s behaving badly” lol.

As when we made it to the end of the arcade there was a lovely lady coming out of the haigh’s chocolate store room who was kind enough to take a group photograph of us all – our timing could not have been better. I think this photo looks like we just stepped out of the chocolate factory. Don’t we all just look delicious?!

Do you have a favourite “go to” dress for certain occasions? and if so, what is it? Let me know in the comments!

Valentines Day Fancy Hat Lolita Meet | Angelic Pretty's Toy Fantasy Coordinate

 I am so far behind on my blogging, that this meet was all the way back in February for Valentines day! I almost wasn’t going to post about it, but I got such lovely photos of the group, and I was so proud of my hat that I thought I would just do it anyway.

So for Valentines day this year the Adelaide Lolita Community held a fancy hat meet. The premise was just that, put together a coordinate and wear an OTT hat to go with it. I had just obtained Angelic Pretty’s Toy Fantasy in white and way super excited to wear it. This is the first print I have ever owned more than one copy of (I have the skirt in sax) as I just adore the print.

In making my hat I decided to stick with the toy theme. I had a cute pink top hat I had purchased around Easter the year before, which I covered with different toys and cute things with a glue gun.

When we arrived they handed us all a champagne glass of sparkling fruit juice (I later discovered that this is because they do not have a liquor licence) as we sat down. They then started bringing out share plates of food and big pots of tea.

All of the food was amazingly decedent, they had everything – scones, various sandwiches and cupcakes to die for.

As always I got my own plate of gluten free treats which were quite delicious, although I was a little disappointed to find there wasn’t any GF scones.

There was a a prize for best hat, the winner of which was chosen by the staff at the cafe. Tamara Took out the prize for best hat with her gorgeous rose tiara.

I think one of my favourite things about Lolita is that it is perfectly acceptable for two people to be wearing identical outfits – it is even encouraged! To that ends, the Adelaide Lolita community hosted its yearly “Twinning” meet a few weeks ago. You are all probably quite aware about my feeling about Angelic Pretty’s Cotton Candy Shop print by now, so I was so pleased when Katie said she would be my twin for the day!

We went all out on the “twinning” part and matched almost everything. We even went so far as to do our make up the same!

Outfit rundown:

JSK: Cotton Candy Shop by Angelic Pretty, myself in pink and Katie in lavender.

Matching special set pieces: Socks, bags and headbow

Shoes: Gold heels from bodyline

Accessories: Heart necklaces and bracelets from louvisa

Wig: Blonde, pink and purple

We all met up and had a lovely lunch at My Kingdom for a Horse! which is a little hipster cafe just on the outer ring of the city. I was really impressed with all of their food as they had many super Sarah friendly options (Eg they catered to people who are intolerant to everything). I went for my usual, eggs Benedict and got a side of halumi, it was the greatest thing ever. I am ashamed to admit though, that I was having such a lovely time chatting and eating delicious food that I never actually got around to taking any photo’s in the cafe! Oops!

Once we were done eating we all decided to go for a bit of a walk to the local park to take some photos. As is my usual, I couldn’t help but snap a few selfies with my favourites <3

Corrina and Enken – Angelic Pretty’s Sugary  Carnival

We had such an awesome array of different styles and amazing twins I just had to share a few of my favourite outfits. First up, is Corrina and Enken! Enken actually had my sugary carnival dress on load specifically for this meet, which I was so excited about as she is not usually one to wear “sweet” Lolita. Don’t they both just look so darling? I think the cute little pig tail buns are what set it off for me. Sooooooo cuuuuttteeee!

Colin and Birtt – Metamorphosis Happy Balloon

Colin and Britt were one of my favourite pairs of the day wearing Metamorphosis’s Happy Balloon print! They even went all out and got themselves some matching helium balloons to match their dresses. I love how they are twinning, but both still put their own personal flair into the mix with different wigs, shoes and accessories.

Sophie and Finn – Fan Plus Friend

Sophie and Finn are one of my favourite Lolita couples, as they are almost always matching each other. For this meet, they both wore Fan Plus Friend outfits in different colours. I love that they are both even doing the same pose! kawaiiiiii! ^_^

Next we broke up into groups of “Gothic” and “Sweet” for more photographs! This is our gothic (ish) group below, they all looks so darling <3

As always with our comm, the sweet group was pretty huge and was a mess of adorable pastel poofy perfection 😛 and a lot of pink. I approve!

And of course, not meet would be complete without the obligatory whole group photograph!

Once we were done with photographs, we went for a wander through town and ended up getting ice cream and coffee at Cibo, and gossiping some more. By the end of the day I was so full of food I felt like I wouldn’t need to eat for a week!

What was your favourite pair from the day? Do you prefer sweet or Gothic coordinates?

Lolita's-On-Ice-Our-mid-summer-ice-skating-meet

I am so terribly sorry for how over due this post is, but I just couldn’t not share it as the photo’s are just too gosh darn cute! This is an ice skating meet that our local community had back in summer when the weather was tipping the scales at over 40 degree’s (Celsius!) on an almost daily basis. We decided that to cool down, we should go ice skating!

Lolita's On Ice Our mid-summer ice skating meet 1Lolita's On Ice Our mid-summer ice skating meet 2

I wore my favorite milky planet set, I thought it was perfect for the occasion as it is covered in ice creams and snow 🙂 I have a super cute up-side-down ice cream cone head band that goes with it, but I thought it would be a little impracticable for ice skating, as it falls off my head a lot when I’m just walking around, so I opted for a plain cute bow instead 🙂 Over all, I am really pleased with how my coordinate looked.

Lolita's On Ice Our mid-summer ice skating meet 6

Of course, with Milky Planet being such a popular print, I wasn’t the only one wearing it! We had a Milky Planet triplet going on, with myself in the pink (of course!) Chelsea (or Pocket Sized Vampire Pandah) in blue and Katey in yellow. The girls were complaining about their ice skates not matching their outfits, I’m lucky enough to own my own as I used to be a figure skater when I was much younger. Here is a little video I took for instagram of me showing off some of my mad skills (or not so mad… it had been a while since I’d skated, and my skates were blunt as) 😛

I was so keen to have a reason to wear my lyrical bunny jacket. It is just the most divine colour purple, and the fluffy bunny ears are just the cutest thing in the world. I pretty much lived in it during winter, but it had been safely packed away in the wardrobe for the summer months.

It was only a small-ish meet, but we all had a really great time and everyone looked super adorable. Christine is the only one that planned ahead, and put together a coordinate that would match the bright blue rental boots!

Once everyone was done with ice skating, they all went into town for ice ream! Unfortunately, I had prior engagements that afternoon and had to go home, but I had such a lovely time combining two of my favourite things into one activity. I can’t wait to do it again!

This outfit wasn’t for anything in particular, although I think I re did it to wear to work at some point I loved it that much. I wanted to be a kawaii pastel space princess, and this is what I came up with 😛

I just love love love how cute this dress is, and it is made from quite thick material, so although it is quite short, it is still rather warm. Its so soft and comfy to wear too! When I look at it, the first thing that comes to mind is the song “Sugar Sugar” by baby bash. This outfit makes me feel just a little bit sweet and a little bit naughty too.

oz-asia-festival-2015

I have never been to the Oz Asia Festival before, so when the Adelaide lolita community was invited to put on a parade, I was quite keen to be a part of it. We were supposed to be doing a parade on both the Saturday and Sunday, but I only Attended the Saturday.

Oz Asia Festival 2015 1

I wore my Cotton Candy Shop JSK, as dispite my initial reaction to it when I received it, it has fast become one of my favourite prints. It was a ridiculously hot day so instead of the matching OTK’s, I decided to go with some cute little ankle socks lest I die of heat exhaustion. Of course I brought along my lovely pink parasol, which was originally supposed to just be for show for the sake of the parade, but I actually ended up getting quite a lot of use out of it to keep the sun off.

Oz Asia Festival 2015 3 Oz Asia Festival 2015 4

The Oz Asia festival had set up this lovely Japanese inspired stage which they used to put on shows of different things relating to Japanese culture throughout the day. They had a few different drumming and martial arts presentations before they had our little lolita parade.

Oz Asia Festival 2015 5

Everyone looked so beautiful all dolled up for the parade.

Oz Asia Festival 2015 11

Once it was all done, we wandered around and had a look through all the different places. They had a “Passport” you could get stamped when you went into each different country’s area.

Oz Asia Festival 2015 7 Oz Asia Festival 2015 9

When we went to China, I found this place that sold these weird “J” shaped code things that got filled with ice cream, that happened to be gluten free! I just had to try one. One of my friends mentioned that the end of it looked like a butt hole, so we spent the rest of the day giggling about it.

Oz Asia Festival 2015 8

It was pretty darn tasty though, and being so hot it was nice to have some thing to cool me down.

I really hope we get asked back again next year a I had such a great time!

botanic-gardens-lolita-meet

Gosh this was a while ago now, but I just recently found all the photo’s on my phone, and they were so lovely I had to share.

This lolita meet was when summer was just starting to show its face, and was one of our first of the season (it happens often) when we decided to change to an inside venue because it was forecast to be super hot.

For my coordinate, I decided to go without a wig. Mostly because it was quite warm, and I have been loving my purple hair with coordinates a lot lately.

Botanic gardens lolita meet 1

For my outfit, I wore my toy parade mini skirt in sax, my tea party blouse with the peter pan collar and just a simple pink cardigan. I had been out some where (I don’t remember where) that morning so threw the outfit together pretty quickly so I could get out the house.

Botanic gardens lolita meet 4

All the girls had gone to Grill’d for lunch instead of the originally planned picnic in the gardens. It wasn’t as hot as originally forecast, but it was still pretty warm. I managed to miss them at lunch, but because it was such a lovely day we all decided to grab a take away cup of tea and go for a walk through the gardens anyway.

Botanic gardens lolita meet 5

We found a lovely little spot near the duck ponds to just sit and chat, and of course take all the silly selfies and outfit shots.

Botanic gardens lolita meet 2

We had so many sweet pastel prints out that day we just had to take a picture.

I didn’t manage to get a shot of the whole group for some reason, but I did get this lovely one of all the “sweet” lolita’s!

Crystal-Dream-Carnival-Unboxing

I was so excited when my Crystal Dream Carnival dress finally arrived in the mail, I started running up and down the hallway. So the Mr Tardo pulled out his phone and started filming. It was a beautiful thing, and that’s how this unboxing video was born.

I *squee* a lot, bounce around and swear to love it more than my fiance. You should watch it, its pretty funny 😛

My-Lolita-Wardrobe

I have finally gotten around to creating a page dedicated to my wardrobe! You will find a link to the page in the main menu up above or, you could just

BTSSB pink Snow white print OP Emily Temple Cute Pink Roses OP AP yellow Strawberries and Ribbons OP AP pink Milky Planet JSK

Click here

ETC Sweets Patiserie JSK AP Lavendar fancy paper dolls JSK AP Chess Chocolate low waisted JSK We're all made here pink betty skirt

I thought having a page instead of a post would be best, as it makes the wardrobe easier to find, and easier for me to update as I get new things and sell old things. I will be updating it super soon, as I just purchased AP’s Crystal Dream Carnival!

So far I have only added all of my dresses and skirts but I plan to very soon as photos of my shoes, and bag collection (Which upon inspection is actually a whole lot bigger than I thought it was). Hope you enjoy it!

This was probably a tad bit over the top for work, but I did it anyway 😛 Spring is well and truly here, and the need for skirts is becoming stronger and stronger. I’m also a sucker for pastels and these skirts are super comfortable to get around in. I’d also seen a lot of picture popping up on my tumblr of adorable girls with their hair in pig tail buns. I just had to try it 😛
