Lolita Meet for Lolita Memoires Volume 2 Release

Last August 19 2017, The Philippine Gothic and Lolita Community gathered again for the release of our self-published lolita fashion photomag, Lolita Memoires. We are already on our volume two with a bigger number of pledges this time.

This year, we agreed to hold the meet-up at Le Petit Souffle at SM Megamall. It's my first time at the establishment and I got to try their matcha latte with ice cream. I didn't eat though for I was saving space for Hot Star chicken later that day hahaha! Sorry not sorry.

I sported a quick up-do hairstyle that day for I planned to just commute to the venue. Uber was under suspension that time and even getting a Grabcar was a bloodbath. Will definitely do it again in the future it was so free-ing!

The girls shared afternoon tea. I never really liked tea no matter how much I try. It's just not my cup of tea. Pun intended. lol

With citrus girl, Mayi.

I've been seeing this place a lot at Tricia's blog. This place is indeed charming.

As usual, we spent the afternoon signing each other's copies along with fun chit-chats and singing Despacito. hahaha

A collective of lolitas is always an eye-candy.

Our new friend, Val from Canada. She chanced upon us at our shoot in BGC two weeks before the meet and was kind enough to approach us and introduce herself. It was amazing it felt like we were in an elite global society and you'd know a sister is sister with just secret codes and stuff. When she said, "I love your coordinates!" COORDINATES! Only a seasoned lolita will use this term. It's indeed a magic word. So happy she was able to join us in this meet despite being in the country for work.

Coordinate rundown: 
JSK - Leur Getter | Boots - Bodyline | Everything else - offbrand

Of course, a PGLC meet is never complete without our sentai formation photo.

Ane here's some preview of the photomag. Cover art made by Sanakanin.

Review | Cardcaptor Sakura lamp from Light in the box

If you've been following my social media pages, it's never a secret that I am a Cardcaptor Sakura fan. Ever since I laid my eyes upon this lamp with CCS magic circle design, I fell in love and added it to my wishlist! Thank universe Light in the Box offered a collaboration once again and sent me this lamp which can be availed at their site!

The lamp looks like this when off.  I think the material is made of acrylic or fiber glass. Not really breakable when dropped which I'm glad it was because hello cats and a  toddler combined, lol. Height is about 7 inches.

It has three modes of light colors which you can change by just clicking the power switch. White, purple, and warm white but not yellow. 

The clear acrylic can be removed. It's not really locked in the lamp itself so I would still recommend to place it somewhere that is safe from a drop.

The led lights look like this.

The switch is placed strategically in the middle of the wire. 

Shipping experience: Light in the Box ships via DHL so it saved me from the hassle of going to the post office! And since it's DHL, my package arrived in just two weeks! The items are always placed in a box which I appreciate a lot.

So happy with this item! Been using it for quiet a while now for sewing. It gives just the right amount of lighting that is not too bright. The purple light mode is perfect as night lamp too. CCS holds a special place in my heart since it's one of the reasons why I got interested in japanese fashion as a child and the concept is really unique and ~aesthetic~ so it never gets old.

Beau Crescent | Cats and Berries

Cats and strawberries are two of the few themes I think I will never outgrow of when it comes to my cute fashion choices. They can be both cute and also classic at the same time, it just depends how you use them in your style. I think it also works best if you actually love cats and strawberries in real life. It's like a personal touch, one of the many reasons why I like lolita fashion and related kei styles in general - it's always about personality. Here's two toddler kawaii/lolita looks styled by me featuring my daughter, Beau Crescent.
