December 7th was international lolita day, and as usual I was at work! Instead the following day I met with Karyn and Liping to see Kobe Luminarie.
First we visited a coffee shop to catch up, the tree there had lots of bread pinned to it, so cute!
Then we took purikura, I really like this new booth, it takes high and low angle shots, full and face shots! You can also choose really crazy backgrounds like French windows and brick walls.
We visited Vivre in Kobe where the lolita shops are based – Angelic Pretty, Baby the Stars Shine Bright, Kera Shop and Metamorphose. Angelic Pretty has a small sample sale but I didn’t get anything. Baby had some special blankets with the Soirée of the beginning of my memories print. It was a special edition and ¥3990, they just had 3 left. Perfect! So we bought one each!
The underside is so soft!
Afterwards we stopped by Tutuanna where I bought everything! Ok maybe not *everything* but 3 pairs of tights and 3 pairs of socks. The Christmas Tutuanna adverts are so cute they have suckered me into buy lots of reindeer socks.
After that it was dark enough to start the luminaire! I’d forgotten how busy it was last year and we had to follow some frustratingly complex route to even join the right line. It took about 50mins to walk.
We enjoyed looking at the lights and listening to church music whilst we ate sausage and stayed warm wrapped in our matching btssb blankets!
I had a lovely day thank you! Merry Christmas!
