Summer ILD 2016

Hello you lovely people, hope you are all well! I had a few laptop issues so this post is a bit later than intended. Last Saturday 4th June it was International Lolita Day and lolitas around the world held various events with their local communities to celebrate. I went to Sheffield to visit the Yorkshire Comm. We had afternoon tea but served more like a buffet. The lovely Sheffield comm mods had booked a space in a tea room for us and it was decorated and we had music playing in the background and everything.
(*photos from the day were taken by Holly)

When we arrived we were each given a special programme book which had a few games, silly stories and bits of information inside. We also got a little gift bag which included a raffle ticket, bracelet, postcard that I think was hand painted and a sweet. It was so cute and such a nice thing to do.

We played a few games throughout the day, socialised, took photos and then they held the raffle which had various cute gifts including branded items from Japan! How lovely is the tricorn!

Everyone received a prize and I won this lovely Chocomint teapot and cup clip. I’d wanted one of these for ages.


And here’s what I wore. It turns out this is the only summery dress I now own and I ran out of time to sort my outfit well so this is what I ended up with. It’s a very hard dress to co-ordinate too. I’m not happy with how this turned out but here it is anyway. I did order some green socks but they arrived late….
