Fan Expo took place during Easter weekend but Kim didn’t attend. I spotted her on Alberni St. just outside Urban Merchant Tea. While chatting, she said the frills, feathers, bows and lace all have an over-the-top quality. It makes her feel like a lady of leisure when she dresses-up.
In addition to Urban Merchant Tea, Rose House in Kerrisdale and Pâtisserie Für Elise in downtown Vancouver are also popular tea house because they match the aesthetics of their outfits.
She also shared International Lolita Day is approaching. It’s a biannual event, held on the first Saturday of June, and the first Saturday of December. Kim is not an organizer and she’s not sure if Vancouver will host an event. However she’s considering attending the Seattle event. Click International Lolita Day for more information.
