Shopaholics

Whether it's shopping for brand or the cutest accessories for your favorite outfit, Lolitas love to shop. And New York City has lots of shops geared towards Lolitas. Here are a few that I recommend:

Anna Sui - Known for her doll-like designs and inspirations, Anna Sui's NYC shop that is like a little dollhouse with all kinds of trinkets and things. Her beauty and makeup collection is something that every Lolita should try as all the products are infused with rose essence. Once you go Anna Sui you're hooked.
