Quick status update - hurricanes, Super Lovers, BTSSB, more stuff

We just wanted to post a quick update on various things relating to our store, since right now there are a lot of loose ends that we've yet to tie up. Don't worry, we're on it!

Last week was a weird week for us, with our tea party on Monday (which seemed to go over well!) followed by a series of unpredictable events that obviously culminated with Hurricane Irene. If any of you have never been here, New York is home to some really pretty extreme weather, including blizzards in winter and hurricanes and tropical storms in late summer. You've just gotta roll with it.

But we're fine - don't worry about us! The worst we got from Irene was a little water damage to our poster frame outside. But the whole week just put us a little behind. Here are some things we're working on and when we expect and/or hope they will be complete:

* Customer orders - have no fear, we are caught up! The first thing we work on is always the customer orders. If you place an order now, it'll be out the door in 24-48 hours as usual.

* Tea party photos, video and report - we'll be posting these in the next couple of days! We even have a little bit of the Skype video with Misako-chan that we can post, so watch for that!

* Super Lovers stock - all of our first shipment stock is priced and available in the store. We'll be taking photos tonight so we can post it to our web site over the next couple of days.

* BTSSB/A&P stock - all priced and available in store. Photos tomorrow, and we will be posting items then. We actually did not get our full twilight Circus order yet (more is coming) but we will post what we have tomorrow and just update the photos/add the rest later.

* BTSSB/A&P reserves - there are a couple of new series available for reserve on Baby's web site. We might not have time to post about those on our site until tomorrow or so, but you can always email us about anything you see on BTSSB's reserve site - you don't need to wait until we post about it.

* Victorian maiden reserves - there's a series ending tonight, and a new round to follow. We're just waiting for VM to provide us our info on those before we post them. (VM's process is a little different from Baby's, so we do need to wait for VM.)

* Innocent World reserves - coming soon! Can't give you an ETA yet on when we can start accepting them, but the time is coming.

* PUTUMAYO - a new shipment is on its way!

Phew - think that's it for now!

Store closure Saturday 8/27

Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented government shutdown of transportation services in New York City on 8/27 and the potential shutdown of bridges and tunnels, we have no choice but to close our store Saturday, 8/27. We do anticipate reopening on Monday, 8/29.

We received a new shipment from Baby the Stars Shine Bright yesterday!

Longer dresses have become more and more popular lately in mainstream Lolita fashion!

We received a few basic dresses and skirts as well and some new headdresses!

We are working on uploading these new items to the site but they are available in our store right now!


Introducing: SUPER LOVERS!

Our first shipment from Super Lovers has arrived!

Our shipment included many bright and fun big T-shirts, dolmans, leggings, skirts, and sarouel pants.

We also received fun patterned bags, socks, and bows to complete your look!

The shirt has little drawings of the two and their stylized autographs!

This brand is all about being loud and fun with a Urban Pop Punk style!

These will be posted to our website shortly but if you're in the area they are available in our store right now!


Tuesday, August 23, 2011

CLOSED August 23 - sorry!

For anyone planning to visit our store tomorrow - unfortunately, sometimes life intrudes unexpectedly and consequently, due to circumstances beyond our control, we will be CLOSED Tuesday, August 23. We will be OPEN for the rest of the week, so feel free to visit us on Wednesday, Thursday or any other day this week. Just not Tuesday!

On the plus side, we just got in our first SUPER LOVERS shipment! More on that soon. And watch for pics and more from our tea party tonight too!

Lolita as daily wear - BTSSB designers around town!

Photos used with permission.

When designers Masumi Kano and Mitsuba were here earlier this month, we had the chance to show them a bit of the city, and we had the idea that we could use some of the photos we took to help promote the idea of wearing Lolita every day.  Both of them wear Lolita as their everyday clothes, and we want to encourage you to take inspiration from them and wear your own Lolita clothes as daily wear!  ♪

Don't be afraid to wear Lolita anywhere! Our store has been here for two years and we know from talking to people in our neighborhood that they're now used to seeing Lolitas around here - the more people wear the style on a daily basis, the more acceptance there is for the fashion.

Kano and Mitsuba do attract attention.  (And why not?  They look amazing!)  There's no doubt that anyone who wears Lolita is going to turn heads, but you can either do what Kano and Mitsuba do and just go with it, or you can tone things down a little by wearing mixed styles like punk Lolita or gothic Lolita, or just a more casual coordinate.  Wear what you're comfortable with!

We admit to an agenda: our goal is to have an army of Lolitas roaming the streets of New York at all times.  The more that people are exposed to the fashion, the more fans it will attract.  That helps everyone involved, including us and you.  And we know from experience that some of our new visitors lately have come in after just seeing Lolitas walking around!  There's no better way to get people interested in Lolita fashion than if they see it being worn in person.

You don't need to be a "lifestyle Lolita" like Kano and Mitsuba.  This is just about clothes.  If you like them, wear them!

More than anything else, the clothes you choose to wear are a form of self expression.  And we - meaning Tokyo Rebel and Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - want to encourage you to express yourself by wearing your favorite style as much as you can!  ♫

New Victorian maiden fall/winter reserve items!

It's that time of year already - time to start thinking about keeping warm in the upcoming fall and winter months!

Victorian maiden has posted a few new items to that end - a coat, a jacket and a mantle. All are up for reservation on our site now; all will be released this fall.

VM continues producing high-end items with quality that's second to none. We've already taken a few orders for these items and VM themselves are almost sold out on reserve, so hurry if you do want something from this reserve round. The reserve period itself ends on the 16th, but it is possible we could sell out of reserve slots in any particular colorway before that. Already, certain colorways may require us to ask VM for availability prior to your order - this is noted on each product page where applicable. You can email us if your favored colorway is noted thusly.

Check out the VM reserve collection page today!

New items from Innocent World - socks & accessories!

We just received a small shipment from Innocent World of accessories and socks, including short socks and our first-ever traditional flat Lolita headdresses!  If you've been looking for one of these, we now have them in stock.  And all of these items are already up on our web site... such as:

Garden Rose Overknee Socks (3 colors) - $27.00

Innocent World's embossed socks are always popular items because they're so easy to coordinate. The subtle embossed design is less bold than a colored print, while still providing visual interest to any outfit. These socks feature an elegant rose and trump embossed print.


Classical Ribbon Watch (2 colors) - $99.00

Finally you can wear a little bit of Innocent World all the time with this wristwatch! Each watch is decorated with a bow as part of the watch face, with a delicate and feminine overall design to complement any outfit. The black watch has antiqued metal parts; the pink watch has bright gold metal parts.


Marjorie Headdress (3 colors) - $65.00

The traditional Lolita headdress is making a comeback! While Alice bands (headbows) have been favored by many Lolitas for a number of years, the flat headdress is the original Lolita hair accessory and is still preferred by those who enjoy the more classic style. We've had a number of requests for flat headdresses, so here we have the Marjorie Headdress from Innocent world - a large flat headdress that ties at the chin. It is decorated with tulle lace and braid lace, as well as two removable rose clips that can be worn as separate hair accessories themselves!


Heart Rose Headdress (2 colors) - $40.00

For those who like the traditional flat Lolita headdress but want something a little smaller, we have the Heart Rose Headdress by Innocent World. Unlike a full size flat headdress, this one does not tie at the chin - it's held onto your head through the use of hair combs at the ends. This is a thinner, smaller headdress than the Marjorie Headdress. It's decorated with original heart lace as well as rose braid lace.


Original Lace Wrist Cuffs (3 colors) - $39.00

These wrist cuffs feature an original Innocent World lace design as well as cute little bows and a string of pearls. Use them either as wrist cuffs or sock toppers!


Double Lace Short Socks (2 colors) - $39.00

Short socks are an extremely popular look in Japan for Lolita fashion right now, and they can be used either by themselves for a cooler feel in summer than high socks, or in conjunction with a pair of leggings or tights for a cute look.


IW Ribbon Emblem High Socks (3 colors) - $19.00 (from a previous shipment, newly added to the site)

These cute but simple socks are a variation on the emblem socks we previously had from Innocent World. They feature a plain design except for an embroidered IW logo with a ribbon and crown motif. These socks will reach to just above the calf.
