I ordered my first dress from Enchantilic Enchantilly and it arrived today! What surprised me the most was the sheer level of attention to detail in the packaging, as well as the garment itself. I should say, this is not a product review and more an appreciation a really beautifully packaged garment.
Inside the box
The box came with a beautiful A3 poster, pictured top right, on top of the order. There was also a small, sealed brown envelope containing TEN postcards!

I’m one of the admins/moderators for my area of the UK Lolita fashion community, so I get a lot of questions about Lolita fashion all the time. I know there’s lots of amazing, in depth resources out there,so over the next few weeks I’ll be writing a few requested posts, compiling a bunch of resources and food for thought in general about Lolita fashion that new members can learn from, and more experienced members can hopefully enjoy.
Today’s topic is: Hosting a Lolita Meet. (But it could be applied to any hobby meetup) This was a requested post, since many girls are new and want to host meets, but feel a bit shy about doing so.
Despite being incredibly ill over the past few weeks, I’ve managed to drag myself out of bed enough days to plan a whole fashion show and display.
