High tea on a Monday because we BAMF

High tea on a Monday because we BAMF

What? high tea on a Monday?! how bizarre! I know right? but hey, my friends and I are all students/shift workers so Monday happens to be a rather good day to catch up for most of us. I was in such a rush that morning (I finish work at 8am Monday mornings) I was super surprised at how well I pulled this coordinate together. I was still running around in a state of undress when my friends started arriving so we could leave together.

Coordinate details

Shoes: Bait Footwear

Stockings: bought from a friend

Dress: Fancy Paper Dolls by Angelic Pretty

Blouse: TaoBao

Cardigan: Target

Bag: Angelic Pretty

Belt: Ebay

Head Bow: Angelic Pretty

I was so pleased with how my hair came out, especially since I came up with the style entirely by accident. I was going to put my hair in twin buns, but I got distracted halfway through putting them up (the doorbell rang!) and thought it looked really cute with some hair hanging down, so i just left it like that. Yay for accidental cute hairstyles!

As stated before, we headed to Pressed Tin Cafe in the city. Corrina had managed to get us a big groupon deal so it ended up being only about 15 per head for the high tea. Not to bad if you ask me, and the best part is – they did gluten-free. Even better, their gluten-free stuff was actually good. For savoury I got sandwiches, sausage roll and some curry puffs. For dessert a little plate containing Chocolate brownie, passion fruit cheesecake and 2 tiny orange cupcakes. My only complaint is that they didn’t have any GF scones. I love scones!

Chelsea was pretty happy with the food offering for the non gluten intolerant.

Pressed Tin isn’t just a cafe, it also happens to be a rather lovely furniture store as well. They have so many lovely things its always fun to walk through and take a thousand photos. I found this couch during our wonder and my gosh I wish I had space in my house so I could take it home. It was just the perfect shade of pink and so comfy too. I think we were made for each other. Maybe one day it will be mine.

Me with my lovely friends Ashleigh and Chelsea. Aren’t they cuties?

Corrina and I fell in love with the derpy look on this little pugs face, we just had to pose with it!

For a Monday, That was a pretty good day!

A salty sweet birthday adventure at 50sixone

A salty sweet birthday adventure at 50sixone

A few weekends ago some lovely lolita friends and I headed out to the magical dessert bar that is 50sixone to celebrate the birthday of our friend Ali.

As is my usual, I went for a coordinate of pink, pink and even more pink 😛 The whole outfit was based around this one head bow you see. I had seen the head bow for diner doll (my current dream dress!) come up for sale on-line, and in the hopes that one day I might actually own the matching dress, I bought it. That silly head bow has been sitting in my wardrobe for some time now and bringing me no luck at all, so I decided that in the off-chance I never end up with the dress (*cries*) I should try to coordinate it with something. So here is what I came up with:

Coordinate run down

Shoes: Bait Footwear

Stockings: Bought from a friend

Dress: Whip Factory by Angelic Pretty

Blouse: Off brand

Cardigan: Taget

Bag: Angelic Pretty

Headbow: Dinner Doll by Angelic Pretty

The birthday girl herself was in pink too, so of course we needed to get a selfie together. Pink is the best colour after all.

Our lovely little squad for the day waiting patiently for the rest of our food to arrive.

I was always a sucker for McDonald’s chips dipped in ice cream when I was younger, so when I saw that they had chips with chocolate and ice cream on the menu I just had to have it. It was so very delicious but I only made it halfway before admitting defeat.

   

50sixone makes the most amazing shakes and desserts. Here you can see Corrina and Ali drooling over Corrina’s chocolate brownie milkshake, and Chelsea‘s big smile when her red velvet pancakes were almost bigger than she was!

As we were leaving the venue we found a wall that had these lovely wings painted on them and we just had to stop to get our outfit shots in front of it. From left to right, Corrina, Chelsea, Katey, me and Jess!

Poor Chelsea was too short, so we tried to give her some help to get up!

Happy Birthday Ali!

My lordy have I ever been slack with this blog. There is so much catching up to be done! Believe it or not, I wrote this post for Chelsea’s birthday… last year 😛 and then I forgot to ever post it! How terrible of me. And now here we are a year later, and its her birthday again! Well, I suppose better late than never right? Happy Birthday Chelsea!

Back in October the delightful Pocket Sized Vampire Pandah (Chelsea!) turned 21! For her party she organised for a group of us to go out to Just Tickled Pink for High Tea! I have been there before as you may remember from a few of my previous posts, we went for Corina’s birthday last year and for our lolita Comm Valentines day meet this year. You all know how I feel about the colour pink, so I was happy to be going back there again, plus the food is always so yummy!

I had purchased Angelic Pretty’s Whip Factory Salopette on one of the sales Comms a week prior, and was super excited when it arrived in the mail just in time for me to wear it to the party. As you can see it was just perfect for the party since not only is it pink (as most of my clothing items are) but it is also covered in adorable cakes! Taking one look at it you can see why I had to add it to my collection, pink and adorable food? I’m in!

When I first tried the whip factory on, I was surprised at how large it was around the waist. It is the first Salopette I have ever bought and worn and was concerned it wasn’t going to fit me. Thankfully with the addition of a lovely pink belt I had in my wardrobe I managed to get it to sit perfectly around my waist!

It was quite a warm day so I was reluctant to wear a wig or anything on my head. I decided to opt for something a little simple, and used my own hair with some clip in extensions to make a cute pony tail. I put two pin curls into my fringe, then finished it off with two small bow clips.

For my make up I opted for pink shaded eye shadow from my Too Faced bon bons palate, winged liner and some false lashes. Pink blush cheecks, and Jeffree Stars Doll Parts on my lips

As always, the birthday girl looked adorable in her Angelic Pretty x Disney little mermaid print dress and Jacket.

I was running a little bit late on the day, so when I walked in I was handed a non alcoholic sparkling drink, and this lovely plate of goodies was waiting for me when I sat down. As always, I went for the gluten free option which, in this instance, meant I got my own plate of treats. I think my favourite was the apple and pistachio loaf you can see on the back of the plate It was so moist and sweet, which by the look of it was quite unexpected.

As is our usual, we took a group shot of all the lolita’s together out the front of the venue. We were all in sweet, and everyone looked adorable.

Happy Birthday Chelsea! I hope you had a lovely!

Just Tickled Pink is quickly becoming one of my favourite places to go for high tea because of how delicious their allergy friendly food is. Do you have a favourite place for high tea? What makes it your favourite?

Lolita Twinning Meet | Pink + Lavender Cotton Candy Shop Print By Angelic Pretty

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!

Sarah and Katie – Angelic Pretty’s Cotton Candy Shop

Adelaide Lolita community | twinning meet + Angelic Pretty Cotton Candy Shop

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

Adelaide Lolita community | Twinning meet + Gothic Lolita Group

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!

Lolita’s On Ice: Our mid-summer ice skating meet!

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!

Lolita's On Ice Our mid-summer ice skating meet 4

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!

A year of Lolita: My Coordinates for 2015

A year of Lolita: My Coordinates for 2015

2015-lolita-coordinates

Our community had an online event, asking us all to share a collection of our different coordinates from throughout the year. I didn’t realize, but I have worn Lolita soooooo much this year, more than double the amount I wore it last year! Here is the collage I made, and this isn’t even all our meets, as I was trying to not double up on print’s too much in this photo.

2015 lolita coordinates

Looking back on my photo’s, I definitely have a few clear favorites. On the top of that list, surprisingly would seem to be my Cotton Candy Shop special set JSK from Angelic Pretty. I wore it so much last year, I just love all the colours on it!

Kawaii international kawaii dolly contest miss venusfury of oh so kawaii 1

Coming a close second I would have to say would be my Milky Planet JSK from Angelic Pretty. I was so excited to get my hands on the entire set in one hit, I just wore it to death. I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want to walk around with and upside-down ice cream cone on their head?

Last but not least, coming in third place would be my Chess Chocolate low waisted JSK from Angelic Pretty (yeah I’m a massive AP fan…). This was one of my most worn dresses last year as well, I just love how it sits on me ^_^

Chess Chocolate JSK Angelic Pretty

SOme of my other observations from this years coordinates is that after I dyed my hair black/purple, I stopped wearing wigs a lot. I still wore my blonde/pink/purple one a fair bit when I wanted to be blonde, but for the most part I used my natural hair!

I have acquired a few more dresses recently during the end of the year (Fancy paper Dolls and Crystal Dream Carnival!), so I will be interested to see what my most worn pieces will be this year!

So tell me, which of my coordinates from last year is your favorite?

Oz Asia Festival 2015

Oz Asia Festival 2015

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

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!

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 😛

This was just a quick little meet we ha d a little while ago when the lovely Belle was down visiting from Melbourne 🙂 The girls had been out visiting Cleveland National wildlife park for most of the day, but being a Friday I unfortunately had to work. So instead, I got dressed up and went and met them out for a cute little lolita dinner.

Cute little lolita dinner 2 Cute little lolita dinner 6

We went to this lovely little Vietnamese place that I didn’t even know existed, but the food was delicious and quite cheap, so no complaints from me. I just wish I could remember the name of the place.

Cute little lolita dinner 1 Cute little lolita dinner 4

After, we all went to the Hello Kitty Cafe for dessert, because its adorable, we were adorable and the desserts there are sooo good! I had a creme brule and some delicious vanilla tea.

Cute little lolita dinner 3

I wore my pink Snow White OP from BTSSB and I am so pleased with how I coordinated this outfit, I think it has been my favourite way to wear it so far 🙂 it just looked so cute and girly, and I can’t believe how well the flower crown matched the dress. I won it as a door prize at the AVcon Lolita high tea (I think. I don’t actually remember), and the shoes I managed to pick up from Savers for $12!
