Bank Holiay Afternoon Tea coord


All right, it wasn’t exactly on the Bank Holiday Monday, the afternoon tea was on Sunday, but it still counts!

To celebrate I went with my Mum for an afternoon tea at what is probably the fanciest hotel in Bradford, the Great Victoria Hotel. Even though the weather was on the grey side, the day was brightened up by this gorgeous JSK from Haenuli, which I wore properly for the first time.

I was so excited to wear this I wore it all day. It is one of the most adorable prints and I wanted to keep it the focus of the coord, which is why the accessories are minimal. In fact, I didn’t even have anything in my hair until the last minute before leaving, when I managed to improvise and create this little bow using the waist ribbon from the JSK, a hairband, an alligator clip and one of my Mum’s lovely brooches. I want to try making more hair accessories using this little method, but that’s for later. This is also the first time I wore a full wig with Lolita – I usually try to create something out of my own hair, but in case I bumped into someone, especially a student of mine, I’d rather not be recognised. In the end we didn’t bump into anyone we knew, but at least the wig looked cute with that JSK.

We had a very lovely afternoon tea, I was glad to introduce my Mum to this very British concept. For a Victorian building the inside of the hotel was decorated more modern, but it still felt fancy. Oh, and the cakes! The sandwiches were alright too, but those cakes, every single one of them, were absolutely gorgeous. Once I get round to organising a meet for my comm, I will keep that place in mind, the staff seemed pretty alright with me being in Lolita, even if it was just Mum and me, and one other couple for most of the time we spent there.


  1. Your outfit is so cute, my dear!

  2. Super cute! The blouse is a perfect match, it's a very well-balanced outfit!

    1. Thank you. I'm still in shock just how well the blouse's colour matches.
