Birthday Afternoon Tea



First outfit post of 2017 – yay! It was my 25th birthday on Sunday and if one’s birthday isn’t an excuse to wear Lolita, then nothing is.

| Haenuli Whipped Cream Kitty JSK | Bodyline L581 blouse |
Mufish tights | Cutie Creator headbow | offbrand boots and
choker |



I went to York with my Mum to have afternoon tea at Betty’s. I wanted to go back since I went there for the first time back in October and although previously I had hoped to do something more to celebrate my birthday, as we’ve had a very tiring visit from relatives just before I didn’t have the energy to do much (never mind that I also didn’t have any other ideas). But a fancy afternoon tea is celebratory enough.

Since I needed something capable of accommodating all the food (doesn’t look like much, but it was sooo filling) as well as very fancy, Whipped Cream Kitty was the best candidate for that. It was great to wear this dress again, I definitely need to pull it out of the wardrobe more often! I had this more Classic coord running through my head probably since I received my Taobao order containing the headbow and tights pictured. Red or blue boots would’ve made the colours that little bit more balanced out, but I don’t own any and it was too cold to just go out in heels (especially with tights this thin) – still, I’m happy with how the outfit came out.

How was your first week of 2017 so far? I hope it was good. I’d love to see what was your first coord of the year, but if you haven’t had the chance to wear Lolita yet then I wish you that inspiration and the perfect opportunity meet.

  1. Celebrating a birthday with a Afternoon tea sounds as a good idea. Maybe should I do it with a few friends(surely it would not being on Bettty's, I would not be able to afford plane tickets). And happy belated birthday to you.

    1. Thank you. If there's a nice afternoon tea place near you (and it seems like recently, with the rise of popularity of vintage/1950's/rockabilly stuff most bigger cities have at least one place, often in more fancy hotels) I'd recommend it. It's a fun way to have a whole meal (sandwiches AND dessert) and feel really cute whilst at it.

    1. Thank you. And I couldn't agree more. I've had a different afternoon tea for my birthday last year and I think it might become a bit of a tradition. :)

    1. I love pairing blue with red, there's something very classy and classic about it. And, oddly enough, that's an apple macaron, though definitely more mint coloured. :P Thank you! ^^

  4. That looks like the perfect celebration (and has reminded me that I don't have afternoon tea nearly enough!) Happy Belated birthday, and I hope you had a great time ^_^
    Red and blue really suit you! I'm really liking your bow/headdress, and your selfies are adorable as ever <3

    My 2017 so far has been nice actually! I'm feeling very refreshed and motivated! Hopefully it will continue :P

    1. I'd love to try afternoon tea at as many different places as possible, there's so much variety in what you could get and how nice it is. :D
      Thank you. My Mum couldn't stop admiring that headbow and it is one of my better Taobao finds. Maybe I'll get it in another colour...

      I hope so too! Motivated and refreshed is what we could all use.
