Happy Valentine’s Day!

This Valentine’s Day my friends and I decided to have a girls-only tea party at a favorite New York City lolita haunt – Alice’s Teacup. Alice’s Teacup is restaurant themed entirely with Alice in Wonderland, fairies, glitter, and tea. And I mean tea – every food item on the menu, from cocktails to desserts and sandwiches – are made or infused with tea flavors. We had hot scones and drank black tea flavored with strawberry, raspberry, and roses!

Below are a few photos from the event! Pictured: myself, Crystal, Bii, Dalin, and Lauren. There were nine of us total (and many more pictures) but I don’t want to photo overload!

Also, finally a photo of my new iPhone in its pink Hello Kitty case!

After all my planning to wear a conversation-heart-and-unicorn coordinate, my new dress didn’t come in time! So at the last minute I had to improvise a little! Trying really hard to get better outfit shots since everyone has been asking for them!

I’m really pleased with my new wig. Crystal and I are both wearing Gothic Lolita Wigs, which really makes soft and beautiful, affordable lolita wigs. I was feeling too lazy to trim the bangs the evening before, so I styled the bangs into a vintage ice-cream swirl with some gel and a lot of hairspray!

This color was very unique and the style is very wearable as there’s no heavy ponytail clips. I’ll probably wear this wig with Aqua Princess as well for a mermaid look as well!

I also tried some new makeup tutorials, mostly mashing a few eye makeup tutorials together for a very big-eye, super-lashy eye. I was going for the downturned puppy-dog look but I think it needs a little more work. I’m actually wearing two sets of lashes in these photos!

 

I hope you all have a very lovely Valentine’s Day! I spent today packing up a pretty Valentine’s care-package for my lovely Ellejay – so much pink tissue paper and glitter under my nails! I hope she loves it ❤

     The tea party looks so pretty, I wish we had shops like this where I live >_<

  • Looks absolutely lovely, I second Miuko’s sentiment! North Carolina isn’t exactly known for its bevy of lolita-friendly locations XD And you look like a total doll, I actually really love bangs styled like that!

  • Excellent, did you check out the tea shop after I mentioned it, or was it already on your list? Isn’t it just lovely?? It looks like you all had a fun time. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    You look so adorable, miss! Even if the makeup style wasn’t what you were originally going for, it turned out very sweet. :) Seems like you girls had a wonderful and magical tea party. And I must say, though I adore the color and styling of your wig, I hope we get to see your lavender locks soon!
