April Coordinates

April was another busy month for Lolita--again, I had five opportunities to get dressed up and hang out with people, which was so much fun! I've been trying to wear Lolita at least once a week this year, and been quite successful recently.

Read on for five Classic & Gothic outfits...

One of my favorite authors was doing a book tour last month, and I had dressed up for the first time I saw them, so I thought I should do it again for consistency's sake. I did something a little more casual, and ended up loving how it turned out.

We also had our community's annual Spring Picnic this year, and since it was close to Easter, I wore a religious-themed outfit. This was about as far into OTT classic as I usually get with the sash and extra hair roses...

One of the girls in the community organized a high tea meetup, so it was a nice break to be able to attend something without worrying about the back end of things! I brought my husband along, too, since he loves tea food.

The last coordinate of the month was for a very bittersweet event--Fairytale Boutique in LA had a closing party to celebrate the end of three lovely years at their physical store. I had a great time being able to catch up with so many friends I hadn't seen in a long time, but the occasion was also a bit sombre. There was no official theme, but I thought Gothic was appropriate given the atmosphere. I also finally took a photo with the "selfie mirror" as one last hurrah for the shop.
