My First Meet Up


On Wednesday October 16th, I organized my very first Lolita meet up! I know the title of this post suggests that this was my very first meet up ever, but it isn't. It's the first I organised myself. ^^ Before I continue, let me give you a bit of pre-history:
a little while ago, my German friend Vera (who I met at the Tea Parties in Paris) told me she was coming to the Netherlands for a couple of days vacation and she was wondering if I wanted to meet up together with her and her friend Anna. Of course I said yes and I soon started planning an official meet up. Since I planned the meeting on a Wednesday, I didn’t expect many girls to be available, but surprisingly enough quite some girls signed up! Due to circumstances some had to cancel after all, but we were still with a total 10 girls. I was so happy people wanted to come! :D So on October 16th I woke up, had breakfast and got dressed into my black and pink outfit that I had planned for this day. My mom took some pictures of me in our garden (the dogs were very frustrated they weren’t allowed to come as well, haha). I hope you like my outfit! ♥

I took the train to Utrecht Central Station, where I walked to the Meeting Point (it literally says ‘Meeting Point’, there’s even a sign!). I was standing there for maybe three minutes when Vera and Anna walked up to me! I was so happy to see Vera again and to meet Anna for the first time! Not long after the other girls joined us one by one, we introduced ourselves and then we went on our way to the restaurant I had chosen to have lunch.

Lolitas in the street. You can see the Domtower in the distance.

We arrived at the restaurant and I asked if they had enough seats for us. I had tried to make a reservation in advance, but somehow it wasn’t possible. Luckily the big table in the middle of the restaurant was free, so we sat down. We had a very lovely lunch with nice food.Vera tried something very Dutch: ‘kroket’ on bread. ^^ I had it myself as well.

If you wanna have it Dutch, order this! ^^

We stayed for quite a long time, because we had so much fun just chatting! I was so happy everyone was having a good time.

After lunch we went to the Domtower Square to take some pictures there. I hadn’t dragged my tripod with me all the time for nothing of course! ^^ I was glad it wasn’t too crowded, so we could take pictures in peace. First, we took some group pictures.

I took a lot of single pictures as well. Everyone looked so amazing! *_*

After taking our pictures, we went to go shopping for a bit. We visited a big second hand clothing shop I had never been before and just entered shops we thought were interesting. It was quite nice and since we were wearing coats, not many people bothered us with questions.

We spent a lovely afternoon together, but all fun must end. Around 4:30 pm we went back to the station to have some Bubble Tea together, after which everyone could take the train.

Lovely ladies waiting for their Teas~!

We drank our Bubble Teas and after some more chatting, we went to the station and said goodbye. I took some pictures in a photobooth with Vera and Anna (the first time we failed, stupid machine!) and after that, we had to say goodbye. It had been a wonderful day and I hope I’ll see them again soon! ♥
