Last Tuesday, I attended my first official Lolita meet-up! Although I don’t actually own any Lolita clothing as of yet, my wonderful friend Katie was kind enough to let me raid her closet for the day. I borrowed her Angelic Pretty brand “Powder Rose” dress, along with her blonde wig, socks, and shoes. Katie was dressed in her brand new “Jewelry Jelly” coord, while Meggan was wearing the adorable “Whimsical Vanilla-Chan.” [Oh god I almost died when she pulled her dress out of the bag. Vanilla-Chan is one of my dream prints, hnnng. ♥]
We started off the meet-up by stopping inside of a cute little jewelry store. The walls, ceiling, and decorations in this place were all pink, so we felt obligated to go in and check it out! Although a lot of the jewelry was very shiny and cute, I couldn’t seem to get over the fact that a lot of what the store was selling seemed to be knock-offs. Certain popular characters were distorted and strange, while a lot of what I saw looked like they came straight from Forever 21. Regardless of the faux jewelry though, the place was super cute, and fun to look around in ~
Next, we stopped at an adorable little crepe shop, by the name of “Love Via Crepes,” a title that proved to be quite true! All of the crepes here looked gorgeous, and were displayed in a nice little glass showcase on the wall. This particular shop sold both savory and sweet crepes, with flavors varying from Chicken Teriyaki, to Berries and Cream. All three of us decided to get sweet crepes, which were, may I add, very very delicious. ♥
After crepes, me, Katie, and Meggan wandered around forever, in a desperate attempt to locate the Karaoke place. Along the way, we had many people stop us, to ask for pictures, question our clothing, or just to pay us a compliment~ Eventually, we found the karaoke place, and joined Ashlee, Kirsty, Victoria, Rikki, Laura, Melody, Holly, and a few other people. We sang some songs, talked, and had a good time goofing off~
About halfway through the karaoke’ing, we took a break, and decided to go outside in order to get some photos taken, before it got too dark.
After all of the pictures, we went back inside to sing some more, then me, Katie, and Meggan left, and began heading home. As we were walking to the car, some girl shouted at us from her car and said “YOU GUYS LOOK CUTE” then, her boyfriend looked at us, and yelled “DAS CUTE” before doing a two-finger gangster point at us, hahaha.
So, that pretty much sums up the meet up! I’m really glad I went, and I hope to go to many more in the future. Everyone in the Oregon community is so nice and welcoming, it’s really a pleasure to spend time with all of them. I will now end this post with a macro I made of Meggan ~
