WOW I am exhausted, but not solely due to the meetup.
Anyway, here are coord pictures!
Long Ears and Sharp Ears Mushroom Forest JSK in brown, with the pink Diamond Honey half blouse. Literally the closest thing I have to a chocolate print. I just don’t like chocolate prints. I want to eat chocolate, not wear it. My frankensteined Aurora+Ariel petticoat is TOO fluffy to fit under the skirt, and also too long, so just using the really old petti I got from Amazon. It actually works really well and is super comfy, I just have to shorten it a little. Maybe my petticoat issues will be solved by simply buying 2 of these Amazon pettis, sewing them together and then making them shorter??
I could have worn socks today, but was too lazy to shave my legs so instead I wore the white tights I always wear. Ha ha ha. And then my Latasa Pink Shoes from Amazon. They are so broken in now that I can use the elastic by the buckle to carefully slip into them. It’s fantastic. I just wish these shoes were a bit more comfortable.
I had to go grocery shopping before the meet, so my hair was fairly simple, and I wore some bracelets instead of wristcuffs.
So went grocery shopping, then came home until it was time for the meet. We went to Andre’s, a cafe that sells specialized chocolate and pastries. I think they may be famous for their chocolate, which is super tasty, but I’ve had their tea cookies before and THOSE are amazing. I believe my boss buys chocolate for his wife from this shop for all holidays where a wife should receive chocolate. (◡‿◡✿)
Anyway, there is a tea room where there is a new set menu everyday. Today the choices were two kinds of quiche, some kind of roast beef, or something else. I got the quiche Lorraine.
There were also pickled beets and carrot salad. The beets were actually very tasty. I think I would have liked the carrot salad if I was feeling a bit better. And then there was some kind of apricot jam cookie crust thing for dessert. I actually wanted princess cake instead, but someone else got it and I didn’t want to bother the server any more by making her go get another one. ;_; It was still very good though, and not too sweet, which is nice.
The others ended up buying some sweets after lunch, but all I did was take some pictures. Topleft are some cute marzipan punpkins (for HALLOWEEN!). Top right are a bunch of little cakes and pastries that I would eat all of if my stomach wasn’t feeling weird. Bottom left are some fancy cakes. I want to get good enough to make fancy cakes like this. Bottom right are the little packs of tea cookies. Full price, they are $16, but when I got them before, they were only $8.
After we ate, we took some group pictures (with the sun RIGHT IN MY EYES GYAH) and then parted. The original plan was to go to a park afterwards but I guess people had places to be. That’s fine, I forgot my parasol and wanted to just go home anyway.
The kitten Jack has discovered the joys of sitting on petticoats. What a good cat.
I had a good time today, but I am also completely and totally drained of energy now. Need more mana potions. Surprisingly, I ate zero chocolate at the chocolate meet as well. Huh.
