Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland at the Morgan Library 6/26 - 10/11

Lewis Carroll's Alice and Wonderland is an inspiration to many movies and archetypes in pop culture.  It's also a constant theme and inspiration for Lolita fashion - there are many prints and outfits modeled after the ever curious Alice.

If you've never been to the Morgan Library, it is a museum devoted to art and literature (think lots of first editions). As part of the 150 anniversary of this novel fairytale, the Morgan Library and Museum will house the original manuscript, as well as "an engaging account of the genesis, publication, and enduring appeal of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,"  in their exhibition Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland.

Note: The museum is free from 7-9 on Fridays. Perfect way to start the weekend.

If you haven't heard the news, Vivienne Westwood is landing in New York City later this year.  That means you can see all the orb jewelry, heart bags, and infamous rocking horse shoes (I hope) in-person.

But if you can't wait you can't always pre-game at the sample sale this Thursday, April 23 to Sunday, April 26.  From my experience stock tends to get updated every day.

Street Snaps: Anime Boston 2015

Stephanie, a new teammate, went to Anime Boston to check out some of the cute fashions.  I'm not great and trendspotting, but the Classic Lolita style was really prominent this year.  What do you think?
