It's almost that time - October is the one year anniversary of the opening of our New York store! Thanks to everyone for helping us get off the ground. We've learned a lot over the last year, had some successes and some challenges, but overall it's been a great 12 months! We really appreciate everybody's support over the past year, and we're (hopefully) only going to build from here.
We've got some things planned to celebrate during the month. The first we can announce right now - starting this week, every Friday in our store will be "Photo Friday"! Come in dressed in your favorite Japanese street fashion style, get your picture taken for our new photo board and our online gallery and you'll get 5% off any purchase made that day. But wait! That's not all. At the end of the month, we'll pick our favorite coordinate and the winner will get a chance to rummage through our contest grab bag - you never know what might be in there. This is just a fun little mini-contest so most items will be small, but some could be big!
If you want to come on another day, you can still get your picture taken and posted to our wall. But the contest and discount is for Photo Fridays only, and during the rest of the week it'll be one of the owners taking your photo - and we're not as cool as Tara!
Angelic Pretty's Little Bear's Cafe series
We've just received a limited stock of Angelic Pretty's Little Bear's Cafe series, and we still have some left! This is Angelic Pretty's main featured series for this month, and it features a cute teddy bear serving sweet and savory donuts in a cafe, helped out by her squirrel friend. Check out our remaining stock!
We also just received a bunch more AP stuff too, including autumn jackets and coats, Regimental Stripe series items, and more! Some new items are already on our web site - more will be posted soon.
Victorian maiden reserves - Noble Queen series and more!
Victorian maiden fans, there's a new round of reserve items posted on our web site, including the Noble Queen dresses and bustiers. The reserve period ends on the 29th, so hurry if you want something!
Come see us at the FIT Lolita Tea Party!
October 5th, we'll be appearing along with Hangry & Angry's illustrator Gashicon at the Fashion Institute of Technology's Lolita Tea Party! We'll be doing some public speaking before the event, and we'll have clothes and other items for display (and maybe some small items for sale) during the tea party itself. More info is on the FIT web site. Go easy on us - we'll probably be pretty nervous!
More new products: Innocent World, SEX POT ReVeNGe and SPR novelty items!
We've been refreshing a lot of our inventory, restocking popular items as well as stocking new ones. On the punk rock side, we've got new t-shirts (all the way up to XL size!), sweaters, leggings and more from SEX POT ReVeNGe, and they've also decided to help us celebrate our anniversary with new novelty items!
We've also got new umbrellas, socks and dresses from Innocent World. Unfortunately the Heart Scallop Umbrellas are sold out again already, but we do now have foldable umbrellas that will fit in a purse!
Coming next: MAXICIMAM and Atelier-Pierrot
Within the next week or so, we'll receive new shipments from MAXICIMAM - including more of the popular Lovely Size items - and Atelier-Pierrot. New dresses and skirts from Atelier-Pierrot, of course, but how about some mini-hats as well? Atelier-Pierrot doesn't often do headwear, but these ones will be worth the wait.
