LBC: Who Inspires You in Lolita

This will be a bit cheesy, but honestly the answer to whom I'm inspired by is all of you!  Since starting Lolita and the City and deciding to cover conventions and eventually creating my own version of "Street Snaps", I've seen so many personal styles.
Rose Boudoir Tea Party
Tokyo Rebel/ Baby, Stars Shine Bright Opening
Sebastian Masuda Meet & Greet in Bryant Park
Japan Expo 2013
It gives me great joy seeing meet new people and see what they do with the basic guidelines of Lolita fashion.  Which in turn, inspires me to challenge myself with new styles and new outfits - appreciating the fashion and the passionate community.

Of course this is my own personal answer, check out below what other people's inspirations are:

Kawaii Meets Art and Fashion: an Evening with Sebastian Masuda 3/25!

Sebastian Masuda returns to New York again to talk about his latest projects like the Time After Time Capsule.  The creator behind the everpopular 6%DokiDoki and stage designer behind Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's very kawaii sets, Masuda is above all an artist. Last year he held his first US exhibition, Colorful Rebellion - seventh nightmare in New York, which was a huge success.

Whether you like anime, Japanese fashion, or pop art be sure to attend this event at Japan Society on Wednesday, March 25, 2015. Tickets are $12 ($8 for members). A short reception will be held after where you could even get a chance to talk with Masuda himself. 

There will also be a small selection of 6%DokiDoki items for sale as well!

Street Snaps: Rufflecon 2014

In October 2014, I attended East Coasts first convention dedicated to alternative fashions. From Lolita to Gothic to Steampunk. It was a great sight to see everyone pulling out all the stops when it came to their outfits.

Note: As always, please credit me if you decide to use these photos elsewhere. And if you see your photo and would like it taken down, please let me know!

City Bakery's 2015 Hot Chocolate Festival Starts Today!

City Bakery's Hot Chocolate festival starts today and I must say I'm excited since I've been working near here.  If you're new to New York or love chocolate (or hot chocolate) I really recommend trying one.  Be warned, they do sell out fast of their festival specials.

Get it with a homemade marshmallow!
