International Lolita Day in New York (1-Dec)

I've been waiting for a few more photos from the New York Lolitas before posting this but decided to go with what I have and add more photos later. I'll just start that this was my most fantastic ILD ever.
I spent Saturday afternoon and evening with a fabulous group of New York Lolitas. The highlight was the formal tea at Lady Mendl's Tea Salon. After that about 10 of us ladies went to a club near Times Square for drinks and socializing.  But let me back up a bit.

I intended to arrive for the Tea about 4 PM. Instead of taking the subway down to 23rd Street (from Midtown) I decided to walk and window shop. Of course, I stopped at Macy's at Herald Square. Quite a mob scene with everyone trying to view the Holiday windows and shop. Was sooo much fun to have the time to just walk and relax.

At 4 PM or so I arrived at the Tea Salon. As I started walking up the stairs I heard "Andrea" being called from the sidewalk below. I turned around and there we about 15 Lolitas standing there. Of course, I was so excited.  I knew a few of the ladies but had never met them in person before. As time passed we grew into a group of 35+ Lolitas.

I was with a group of 20 other Lolitas for the Tea. The food was yummy. We had lots of time to chat and get to know each other. We also had a Secret Santa gift exchange. I'm just so blessed to have made so many new Lolita friends! Can't wait to get back to New York again!
