Angelic Pretty tea party

Tea party, now ! 

This year's took place at the Westin hotel, which had welcomed a Btssb tea party some years back. We got the same nice big room this year.

We got a nice table with the best people, Sandra, Pippa, Ada and Rosalynn, and... Kinda stayed there a lot, actually.

Location was good, fashion show was really nice and the guest line was to die for, there was nice food and as usual since no one likes coffee I get to drink more than I should, AP was very generous with novelty items and raffle prizes !

But I must say I was quite frustrated this year; it's not about the content strictly, it's more about the way it was done... No pictures of the guests allowed, no interaction with them either. They stayed on stage mostly and we were seated and that was it. I have a feeling this might be how tea parties happn in Japan but it's... Clearly not what we're used to.

I was wearing my (gasp) only AP dress. Beloved trash bag for all your trashbag-kei needs. Shines every way you could imagine. I can't thank Sandra enough for lending me a blouse — yes, it is real, I do not own any black chiffon blouse.

We got 30 seconds to take pictures of the models. Therefore this is shit.

Cake posing. It was a good cake. An honest cake. 

Sandra assessing her bounty.

Pip won a big prize : )
I was so sure she would, all afternoon.

Best dressed really deserved it ! Those sheep ears are the cutest thing.

The worst
Mila was working but there is always time for silly pictures. Very important.

Rosalynn won second best dressed which was also so deserved !

Sandra was rocking the funacoord, this is all kinds of perfect.

I LOVE this dress on Marina, lavender and red is a blessed color combo.

Pip was the most adorable berry
Also sorry I ruined your cuteness by putting my derp next to you, you don't deserved to be treated so cruelly but

Ada also looked fantastic and I'm super sad I didn't get any picture of her outfit. It was so soft and elegant.

Precious things from the day ! The TP exclusives are super nice and sweet and I won tights and socks. The tights I won playing against RinRin, my brightest moment for sure !!

AP opening & JE 2016

 July 7th was the opening of the new AP shop in Paris ! I wanted to get all excited and queue for one million hours with everyone but getting there at all required that I take a day off, and days off are sacred. That and also I'm getting old. Therefore I went at 11... Took a queueing ticket then off to eat our bodyweight in pastries with Sandra, Marina and Roxane. Such is the true way of life.

I got back two hours later and the only item I was interested in purchasing was still there. Misty Sky socks, you escaped me too many times but now you're mine. A success, overall.

Marina and I were matching !

The precious

Introducing to you: The Most Tiring Day

Starting with Japan Expo ! Went there with Mila andeven dragged classmate A. (see I'm protecting your identity, how generous) who's in fact very much enjoying all the weeb. I hope the alpaca's being well-treated.

We met up with Alien and Sandra briefly on NHK booth, looked for Neb Aaran Do desperately (they weren't there that day, no clothes for sale, I can't even begin to decsribe all the tears shed, well. Disappointing. . .)

Marina informed us that Dokyuusei was finally being published in French, and debuting at Japan Expo! I'm the happy owner of two versions now. The JP one will traditionally always be the nicest but truly that French one isn't bad. Also bought matching pup and salmon keychain (?? hwat) with Mila because we have superb taste. That and I finally got to meet and buy from and chat for way too long with Su, so I'm very happy overall.


Why live if you can't exhaust yourself ? I ask myself everyday. Coming back to Paris we met up with RinRin for Ladurée and shopping ! It was such a pleasure to see her again. She is the nicest most adorable. I hope we can meet again next year !

Many many pictures of everyone. RinRin was shooting video and I just kind of, took advantage of it but then when am I not.

Probs set to murder you 

I wanted to be a potato for Japan Expo because there is a limit to suffering and I'm drawing it at tight clothes. 
It was still Way Too Hot, so the long-sleeved OP probably wasn't the best idea.

Appreciate the Neb Aaran Do, it's the most you'll see (cries) 

I heard those AP lucky packs were good

I heard this AP shopping was good, even

RinRin is not real


Thank you for reading !!
