I missed Shimokita! お久しぶり下北沢

Hello dear readers!

ごきげんよう!サフィラです.

I’ve blogged about going to Shimokitazawa several times already, so you can tell I really like it! It has a good atmosphere and it’s not too crowded. I love shopping at Grand Bazaar Lolita there since it’s more focused on classical/otome than Closet Child tends to be. It’s been a while since my last visit to that area though, maybe because I can get my fix of vintage shops in my own neighbourhood and Shinjuku is closer for lolita shopping.

東京で、原宿も、高円寺も、下北沢も大好きです。静香だし、おしゃれだし、いいカフェがあるし、下北沢はとてもいい町だと思います。下北の古着屋さん、とくにGrandBazaarLolitaが大好きです。

On this particular day I had a chance to meet up with my good friends from university (we are all graduated and working now), and I suggested Shimokita. Actually I suggested Nakano Broadway as well but one of my friends thought I meant something to do with kicklines and top hats and opted for Shimokita instead….

イギリスの大学で知り合った友達と一緒に下北沢へ行きました。

We started off with tea at La Palette.

最初、LaPaletteでお茶をしました。

このカフェはとても美味しいです!インテリアはイギリスらしいですね。

くりとチョコレートケーキと桜茶にしました。美味しかったです!このカフェでステキなケーキと紅茶は色々があります。

I was a little disappointed with the tea cup since they usual give Minton chinaware. However I could admire the pretty colour of my cherry blossom flavour tea.

お皿はミントンの物です.とても有名なイギリスのメーカーです。

Here’s my outfit. Blouse is Jessica MacClintock (Gunne Sax), jumperksirt Emily Temple cute. The boots were more for practicality than style- the streets were snowy and slushy (and they still are now).

あの日のコーデです。ブラウズはGunneSaxです.ジャンパースカートはエミキュです。雪がまだあったから、暖かいブーツを履きました。

We went shopping after tea, and both my friend and I found some nice items at Grand Bazaar. I got a bargain MILK cardigan and old-school Emily Temple Cute corduroy jumperskirt. I’ll show you them soon!

お茶のあと、買い物をしました。GrandBazaarLolitaで、ミルクのカーデガンとエミキュのジャンパースカートを買いました。安かったです!こんど見せます。

Before saying goodbye we took purikura together:

バイバイの前、一緒にプリクラをしました。あの日はとても楽しかったです。ありがとうございます!

Please look forward to the next post,
