Post-It Note Journal: Cotton Candy floats, Star Trek and brunch!


Lolita and the City started way back in 2010.  Sharing events for those who admire the "cute" lifestyle has changed. I've started Post-It Note Journal to record all my mini-adventures.

Lolita
  • Last week, Parfaitdoll and I checked out the Bubble Tea Float at Vivi Bubble Tea LES location. The Matcha Green Tea float really worked with the sweetness of the cotton candy.  (Order a float and get 50% off your next drink when you share a photo on social media! The float and promotion are only available at at the LES location.)
  • Victorian maiden's Early Autumn Fair and Outlet sale just started!
  • Registered for Rufflecon - See you Sunday!
Fun Stuff
Shopping
  • The fall weather Monday reminded me I needed a new travel mug and stopped by David's Tea. They also had their fall selection out like Pumpkin Chai, Mocha Latte, and Blueberry Muffin - if you love that "hot kick" from cinnamon hearts candy you will love their Pumpkin Chai tea.
Brunch
  • Discovered the Alcove, one of my favorite Queens haunts is serving brunch! Speaking of brunch, the Lowery Bar & Kitchen was pretty neat - the Kale omelette was really delish.

10 Ideas For International Lolita Day In NYC!


It's International Lolita Day tomorrow and while it's mostly about getting together with long lost friends, it's also important to reflect why you love this frilly fashion.  Do something different and have fun spending time with yourself too!

It's nice to recharge and reflect why you like this fashion of lace and petticoates; loving it not only because of the friends you've found but how much you've grown as a person overall.

Here are 10 ideas you can do by yourself but can easily do with friends too!

1.  Go out visit the museum like the Museum of Art and Design, you'd be amazed how serene walking through galleries alone area.
2.  Treat yourself to an expensive meal.  Indulge yourself. Or try something new at the Japan Block Fair.
3. Go see a movie you wouldn't normally see by yourself.  No one you know will see you cry during When Marnie Was There.
4. Get a summer version of the St. Honore, strawberry and pistachio, at Laduree.
5. Request to sit in a cafe by the window and just people-watch.
6. Be a tourist and check out the World One Observatory.
7. Do some retail therapy at Planet Cute.
8. Book-browsing at the Albertine, a store devoted to French literature (books are in French and English.
9. Buy a dried flower bouquet at the Union Square Farmer's Market.
10. Visit the Hello Kitty Time Capsule.

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.
