Lolita shopping adventure!


Hello honeys!

Sorry that I haven't posted in a while!! I got really busy with work and then was on vacation for a week..

For my vacation, I took a 3-day trip to San Fransisco! I mainly went so I could visit the lolita shops, but the whole experience was wonderful

We arrived suuuuper late at night on Sunday so we decided to just sleep and start our real adventure the next day.

We stayed the night at the Crowne Plaza which was quite cozy! The beds were incredibly soft and the breakfast was yummy as well.

So we started our real adventure Monday around noon. First, to our real hotel!

We missed the first shuttle, but luckily the 2nd one wasn't too far behind! We stayed at Hotel Kabuki which is right on the edge of Japantown. The decor had a traditional feeling, and the bathroom even had traditional bathing-style! I almost hurt myself when trying to shower -- the bathtub was nearly 3 ft deep

Since we were staying on the 15th floor, we had an amazing view.

I decided to wear lolita since it was my main shopping day

We rode the bus to the Angelic Pretty store (yes, lolita on public transportation... I got many odd looks). The shop was split half-and-half -- Angelic Pretty and Harajuku Hearts. It was small yet quaint. Sadly, no photos were allowed inside, but I did get a picture taken outside.

There were two shop girls there: one was incredibly sweet and chatty, and the other... not so much. She just sat at her computer the whole time really. :

I realy wish I had gotten the name of the sweet shop girl. She was seriously incredibly helpful! Good at driving sales too haha~

I bought a mint cardigan (it was on sale) and the Cake House Bag. The bag was kinda expensive... but it cost less than a pony bag AND it has more room! So it was definitely worth it~

My mom found an item for herself, too! A very punk-lolita styled skirt -- I'm trying to "convert" her into a lolita, and it seems to be working! xD

After shopping at AP, we wrote the bus all the way back to Japantown so we could go to the New People building!

They had a little cafe on the ground level where I tried some organic onigiri. I got the 3 set, so I picked different flavours for each: Spicy Shrimp, Ume (plum), and Teriyaki Chicken. The Spicy Shrimp and Teriyaki Chicken were delicious! The Ume... not so much. Maybe I'm just dumb when it comes to Japanese foods, but the Ume was super sour! I was expecting sweet like a plum from the grocery... Can someone please explain to me why it was sour? ;n;

Floor 1 is the New People Store where they have cute little goodies. They even had GLBs! Nice stuff, but my money was for clooothes!

Up to Floor 2!

The artwork on the stairwell was quite interested and even a little frightening. When we got up to the 2nd floor though... my eyes truly lit up. It was lovely! Sadly there were no photos allowed at the BABY store, so I'll let you imagination run wild on that one~

This time, my mom got another skirt and a pair of boots. I even convinced her to buy a LP to expand her budding lolita wardrobe! She let me have the blouse and keychain from it.

I just bought a pink cutsew. It has detachable sleeves so I can use it all year 'round!

And surprise! We both got the novelty cellphone charm! It's seriously too adorable; I'll be turning mine into a necklace.

We went and had curry for dinner. It was my mom's first time having it since she's scared to try spicy foods. I made sure to get yellow curry, so no worries about it being too spicy! After dinner, we went back to the hotel to sleep. It had been a long, tiring, and exciting day~

This post is getting rather lengthy, so I'll put up Days 2 & 3 tomorrow or Tuesday~ I hope you all enjoyed reading about my lolita shopping adventure! I also hope everyone is having a lovely week~ it's only the beginning!

Photos from the past few fun days ★

Hello lovelies!
Yesterday I hung out with my wonderful friend Jesse~ we went out to tea and did a little shopping! I always take my camera when we hang out, and each time I seem to forget to take pictures... so bad of me I know. We had a really fun time none the less, and I can't wait to hang out with him again!
I do have pictures from my birthday, though! My mom took me to Atlanta to eat at The Melting Pot. I think a few local girls go there often, but it was my time ever going! It was also my first time fondue-ing!(or however you would say it... xD)
Our sweet server Justin asked what the special occation was, so I told him that it was my birthday~
They brought me adorable chocolate dipped strawberries + a piece of red velvet cake as a little treat! I should've taken a picture while the candle was still lit, but I wasn't really thinking at the time. I just wanted to eat the strawberries!
It was truly a wonderful birthday weekend; I can't wait till my birthday next year!
And I hope all of you had a delightful weekend as well!
