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!)
Outfit Break Down
Jsk, socks, bow, cardigan, blouse and bag: All Angelic Pretty!
Wig: Bought from Sydney markets
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?!
