[28.] Tea Party Club 5th Anniversary with Juliette et Justine

Good evening my dear readers (^-^)!

On the 8th of September, already exactly a month ago,
I headed to London to attend the lavish Juliette et Justine Tea Party.

To celebrate the Tea Party Club's 5th Anniversary,
Kyra (my former London housemate) managed to 
host and organise an amazing event, held in the Charing Cross Hotel!

Special guests came to London, straight from Japan!

The day started with early entry for VIPs (me).
We were allowed to browse around early and start buying things!
However, I was good and didn't buy anything until the end!

There were various different stalls on one side of the room
and the whole other side was packed with the most beautiful
Juliette et Justine dresses, skirts, blouses and accessories.

We had about half an hour before they let in people with 
general admission tickets. After everyone had some browsing time,
we got called into a different room as the Q&A Panel was about to start!

How cute is Mari Nakamura? Such a sweet smile! 
I remember one question being asked by the panel to the public.
"How long did it take you to get ready this morning?"
Answers ranged from 48 hours(!) to 10 minutes!
For me, I think it took about 30 minutes, because 
I already prepared what to wear the evening before :3

After the Q&A panel, there was a mini-raffle and then we got some 
free time for lunch. There was also an option to go on a scavenger hunt, 
but I was too hungry :3

Once we got back from lunch, the fashion show started!
My fellow blogger & friend Florrie took some amazing photos.
Mine turned out awful, so please look at hers!

Then we had a little bit of free time again,
while the organisers were busy preparing the main-raffle.
I took this opportunity to spend some £££ ^-^!

I bought this beautiful JSK from Juliette et Justine.
It's called "La danse de la dame".

 And I also bought this beautiful key hair clip from Now Voyager!
Felicity always finds the most amazing things, you should check out her shop!

After I had finished spending all my £££ we got called to a different room.
Mari Nakamura and Mariko Suzuki were taking photos of us
and taking our questionnaire that we had to fill out. Then they told me
I looked beautiful and they gave me an autograph (*__*)!

Once I recovered from being star struck main-raffle was starting, yay!
I won a beautiful chocolate coloured bow from Juliette et Justine themselves!

When the main-raffle finished we witnessed a beautiful wedding proposal!
Not a single eye in the room stayed dry!
A massive congratulations to Kyra & Dom <3

After we dried our tears we took a massive group picture.
You can't see me in it properly as I'm in the very back...
You can see my hair accessories, so I'm going to count myself in!
I'm at the left yellow curtain, look for a little green & red spot of hair accessory XD

  1. You looked so fabulous, I always love heavy floral patterns dearly.
    I'm so glad you had fun, i wish i could have been there. Thinking back i think i could have but i was too unsure about how things were going to happen for me.

    1. Thank you so much, Jo <3
      I do wish you could have been there too, but it was better for you to look after your health! Your little girl is so adorable, I'd love to meet her in Portugal one day!

  2. I really love your outfit, you looked absolutely stunning dear ♥ The dress is gorgeos, and I love the headpiece you're wearing. It wasn't so hard to find you on the groupphoto after you wrote where you were standing :p

    I always love to see photo's of events like these. And it's always fun to see how many people go there, and from all over the world!The perfect oppurtunity to meet lolita's you only knew online.

    And congrats with buying that dress, it's so beautiful! Now I want to see a photo of you wearing it ♥ And the photo's your friend made of the models are very good ^^

    1. Thank you so much, Damiën <3 I wish you could have been there!
      Hahah I'm glad you found me on the photo! I wonder if this is the photo they'll use in the GLB!

      I'm glad you like all the photos! I've actually not even taken the dress out, I need to find a fitting blouse & socks, because all my socks turned grey in the wash D:! Lolita nightmares, lol!
