Lolita and the City was created as a resource for Lolitas and local New Yorkers alike who had a flair for the kitschy and cute side of NYC. New York City is known for it's flashiness of Times Square, the stateliness of the Empire State Building, the media flair of Radio City and Rockefellar.

However what about the side of New York City that appeals to Lolitas? New York City is a fashion capital so it's no wonder that Lolitas want to enjoy this fast-paced city as well. While you can go to the Metropolitan Museum or Central Park, there are other places that Lolitas can enjoy (in peace and the company of friends) beyond the notable tourist areas and events.

Lolitas always up for new things, and in New York City there are a thousand things that can past you by and miss out on. Lolita and the City hopes to expose the cuter, sweeter, and pinker side of NYC. Not only will I try to provide tips on navigating the city, but what's the best way to travel (in or out of Lolita), how to store your closet of brand in a studio-sized apartment, where to find Loliable items in plain sight, and many more.

About the Writer in Frills: 

A twenty-something New Yorker who wanted more out of life and the city. Like every bright-eyed, bushy-tailed college student, she moved to the big city after graduating from Ithaca College with a B.A. in Creative Writing. 

Several years ago she discovered Lolita, a Japanese fashion inspired by the Victorian fashion sense of modesty but with the opulent flair of Marie Antoinette. Wanting to share a different side of New York City - a Lolita side - she decided to create this blog.

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
