First Meetup

This weekend I attended my very first lolita meet up! It was a "tea party" in a little city park with a small lake. Although there was not a drop of tea in sight. XD I didn't wear lolita as a) my only complete blouse is not very comfortable and I was so nervous I really wanted a comfortable outfit and b) I don't have a complete coordinate anyway. However, I tried to dress nice by wearing a cute little skirt number with some ballet flats. There were at least 20 people in attendance. It was so amazing to see so many lolitas in real life. I also discovered that we have a HUGE local community with over one hundred members on the Facebook group! Wow. I'm so glad I finally got my foot in the door and will definitely be attending more events whenever I can. The girls were so lovely and nice, I hope I can make many friends.

I did take a couple of pictures (I wish I had taken more), but as I would like to keep myself anonymous I won't be posting them. I'm sorry.

There was a raffle of sorts, but almost everyone walked away with something. XD My prizes included a heart ring, a plush candy hair clip, and an adorable minnie mouse cupcake ring.


  1. Yay!!! I'm so proud of you!

  2. The prizes are adorable!
    The meet up sounds fun ^_^
    Like the user above me, I'm also proud that you went :D
    It's always great meeting a community of people that share your interests.
