Cupcakes & Unicorns
Well, well, well, look who it is! Thanks for your purchase♡
It's a rare occasion when a post other than Stephano's makes me hungry...
Ah, yes, some places have predictable 'seasonal weather', by which you can divide your wardrobe...
A great resource for those new to Japanese auction sites!
Bay Area Kei officially endorses these resolutions. Best of luck!
Hello Lizzie Bee
What's blogmas? Well, it's not vlogmas, as that involves Daily Video Editing. Props to Lizzie for finding a way around that chore! Tsubasaism: The Autobiography
Did you know gals tend to come from working class backgrounds? Lizzie shares an interesting snippet of a fan translation of famous gal Tsubasa Masuwaka's memoirs!
Friends AND food? How can you go wrong? (Nothing went wrong, btw! That was rhetorical!)
Getting distracted by Pokemon G O, eh? No one here at Bay Area Kei can relate to that, nope!
There's no haul like one from Santa!
J-Fashion Interviews – Haraguchi from Na+H (GLP, 2007) A not-milquetoast interview with not the designer of gothic brand Na+H…but rest assured, I still have some grievances.
The fact Kelp had no idea this started in the EGL Livejournal community tells you a lot about how active she was there...(Classic lolita problems, haha)
The big gift-giving holidays may be over, but this advice applies year-round!
Luna by the Lake with Cake
The latest from Meta, Baby, and Angelic Pretty!
This is on Kelp's to-do list...
Weather messing up your fit? We at Bay Area Kei wouldn't know anything about that! (Thanks for braving the rain, Holiday Pop-up attendees...)
Make a note for next year!
It's that time of year! Protip: you can't break any resolutions you didn't make...
A glass Christmas tree? That and much more in this meetup wrap-up!
You've heard of the 12 days of Christmas, get ready for the 12 coords of 2022!
The final wishlist update of the year...wait a trip to California? Happy travels!
We've had panels on wearing lolita in cold weather, but making a note that future J-Fashion Uni should have "How to pack lolita for a trip"
Come for the Japanese kimono lesson, stay for the surprise dog pic!
Yes, there is More Dog (as well as two gorgeous dresses)
As always, Kelp personally recommends Money.
Okay I already plugged Ozz On, but I had no idea Algonquins came back! A staple of Kelp's everyday closet.
Fun fact: Kelp primarily got into lolita through watching Malice Mizer's merveilles concert in about 2001...
Finally, I thought, a Stephano food post that won't make me hungry! (Cuz Kelp is allergic to fish. YMMV.) But then I got burned by the miso cheesecake at the end.
Happy Anniversary! (Kelp misses going to izakayas...)
Wear Your Bows
A continuing saga of attempting to wear all the things!
Thanks for attending! See you next year!
