In celebration for an early International Lolita Day (starting my new accounting course has cinched my ILD as a big study session this year, sigh), a few of my New York City lolita friends and I went out on the town for a weekend! Although my camera clonked out as soon as we hit the venue, my trusty iPhone got plenty of the photos I needed!
Serendipity’s is a wonderful restaurant for kitsch, vintage, and everyone from rockabillies to girly-girl types. Some things you should know about them: they have a pretty cool jewelry display; are known for their giant sundaes including a $1,000 one; and you should definitely try a frozen hot chocolate or Pink Ice! Dalin had an amazing Forbidden Broadway Sundae. It was huge! Thankfully the waiters are no stranger to the one-dessert, many-spoons approach.
I found this video of Serendipity’s featuring their Golden Opulence $1,000 Sundae, a crazy Marie-Antoinette worthy creation made of edible gold leaf, Tahitian vanilla, and orange-and-passionfruit-infused caviar (fish eggs on a sundae?!) and rare Italian chocolate. This video also has a great panorama of the inside of the restaurant as well! It looks very topsy-turvy and reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. This may top Alice’s Teacup as my new favorite place for themed fanciful dining!
My outfit for the meetup – I wanted a delicate, lacy feeling with the white and lavender, but since it was a scorchingly hot and humid day I skipped the blouse and wig in favor of a more comfortable style. For once I kept my glasses at the lavender was a perfect match! Taken at night in front of the Rockefeller Center – not just for Christmas time!
