Last Winter International Lolita Day I hosted my very first meet up- the San Francisco Japanese Fashion Walk! I was inspired by the multitude of Harajuku walks around the world, and felt us Bay Area folks needed one as well!
The route started in Union Square, which is in the downtown area of San Francisco. We walked straight from there to Japantown, and made quite a scene along the way! Instead of making it a Lolita-only event, we decided it was best to include all sorts of styles. A few Lolitas were seen in other styles like shironuri, fairy kei, and gyaru!
Here’s a video I put together with the footage my sweetheart so graciously filmed:
I wish we could have gotten footage of everyone’s amazing outfits at the end, but the battery for our camera died! I hope everyone who attended had a great time, and I hope I did a good job editing this video because I’m not sure I knew what I was doing!!
Once we arrived in Japantown we split into mini groups based on interest. For a lot of us that meant a hot bowl of soup!
… and topped it off with some deliciously cute crepes!
We looked around the shops including Kinokuniya and BtSSB (where I was trying on the giant usakumya backpack unaware that Charles had already bought it for me for Christmas!!).
But no Japantown meet is complete without purikura!
Have a sugar-sweet day and thanks for reading!
