Extremely Late for an Important Date: Tokyo Rebel Tea Party 8/22 in Pictures!

This is long, long, long over due, since this was in August and now it's November with the leaves already on the ground (and we've already experienced our first snowfall!). So apologies to anyone and everyone who reads this.

In late August, Tokyo Rebel held its first tea party. First part of the event was a buffet at Cha-An, a Japanese teahouse in the East Village. The second half took place at their store for a live Skype conversation with Misako Aoki!

So much delicious food.  Menu consisted of Teriyaki style meatballs, tofu quiche, chicken fried rice, smoked salmon, and green beans with sesame peanut sauce.
A little bit of everything. Everything was delicious. If you have the chance to go to Cha-An at another point in time, definitely go.
Everyone gave small introductions. It's always interesting to learn about other people who got into Lolita. This girl is a teacher!

The Grand Prize Winner of the Best Coordinate/Outfit Contest goes to this lovely lady. What did she win: $300 gift certificate to spend in their store.

Tea Party Goodies: three postcards, a box of candied almonds, Baby, the Stars Shine bright wristcuffs (made especiallyfor the tea party), and a Thank you card(not pictured).
I couldn't get enough sweets so me and a few friends dug into these cakes from the Cake Boss cafe in Discovery Times Center.
Tokyo Rebel posted the full transcript here and photos for curious readers.
