Lolita Memoires photomag release and post valentines tea party

Last Saturday was the release of the local lolita community's self-published photomag and we gathered to celebrate the milestone of our community with a tea party hosted by Dorotee Sweetlips.

It's been a while since I last hosted a meet. I've actually promised the group to organize one last year but I was really so busy that I can't put my head into it so I'm really glad I was able to arrange one this year. All thanks to Bunny Baker for always welcoming the kawaii community. Booking a table reservation for a lolita meet was never been this smooth with other restaurants. You know, they were like.."what lolita meet?" "I'm not sure if we can allow you" etc. etc. Bunny Baker is truly a blessing! I can still remember how I discovered them a couple of years ago at a food bazaar. The booth was so cute! I was one of the first to yay with joy when I saw they opened their first branch. I knew in my heart that the cute theme has more into it. Do you know the owner is actually a fan of kawaii? This is why Bunny Baker really feels like home.

Dorotee Sweetlips workshop now open for visits!

After a long time of putting off, finally I've found the dedication again to liven up this small space I work at for the past 8 years with Dorotee Sweetlips. It is the same old space.. has seen all my better and worst days. The building is not as busy anymore like 4 years ago, of course, since mama's passing. But maybe I just also want to remember her hard-work through this building while at the same time move forward with life!

Moving on from the sentimental stuff.. Yes! The studio is now open for appointments for those who want to shop our off-the-rack and on hand collections, sit down with me for made-to-order projects, and maybe workshops soon. We require you to send us a message in our fb page first to schedule an appointment at least 3 days before the desired visit. Hope to see you soon!

Our dress rack contains Dorotee Sweetlips originals and sets from Labyrinth Garden x Dorotee Sweetlips styled sets.

Little corner for Tea Pawty items. (Proceeds will go to funding a shelter for stray cats)

Plus! The other room also contains the resale/thrift kawaii fashion collections from the sister shop, Labyrinth Garden. Very much open for visits as well since a lot of people have requested wanting to try the pieces on first. Yep, we're now here to serve you!
