hey everyone! ♡ how are you all? i have been feeling pretty under the weather but i had my first time organizing a lolita meetup for my group!
it was a lot of fun, but at first the place we chose, sugar daddy's canceled on us by very rudely yelling at me over the phone when i had already made a reservation... it was awful!
but thankfully, annie had a backup plan and we went to sweet claire's bakery.
they were awesome, accomodated us perfectly and quickly, and had tons of delicious bread and iron pot teas! i got a delicious giant sweet bread with cream cheese and blackberries.
we all chatted about clothes and fandoms while having a delicious little meal.
afterwards, we walked around bloomington and went to the sample gates to take some photos!
everyone in our group is always dressed so cutely!! i loved everyone's outfits.
i wore my "princess dress" from pinkly ever after. i will have to do a review soon, because her products are amazing and i absolutely love the dress. it is so glittery and tulle-y *o*
here is my coord, taken by ashli.

while we were out and about, we got SO many comments from people. they were all pretty much positive aside from a few creepy guys on the sidewalk on kirkwood. several people asked if we were having a "princess party" and they all wondered what it was for. we always replied "for fun!"
later on we went into baked, which i had never visited before. you basically pick a dough and a bunch of ingredients and they make cookies for you! they also have milk and stuff, and you get your cookies in a pizza box. they invite you to decorate the boxes and they line the walls (even the ceiling!) with them. i loved seeing all the awesome art.
i made a box to contribute and i hope to return later to see it hanging up. i wasn't in love with the cookies, but maybe i'd like another dough better.
after relaxing in baked for a while with our cookies we all parted ways and headed home. it was a little bit stressful hosting my first meet at first, but it ended up being so much fun and i didnt feel any pressure at all to organize it. it was a blast, and i had so much fun walking around b-town with my lovely lolita friends! i can't wait for next month's meetup~ ☆ i miss everyone already.
thanks to all the girls who came and hung out at the meetup! i hope you all had a great time!!
