This week's Lolita Blog Carnival was one I was really looking forwards to! This week's topic is...
Ok, so my graphic is worded a little bit differently than the actual topic because I managed to completely forget the name of this week's theme as soon as I opened up Photoshop, but they say about the same thing!
If I had my own Lolita themed cafe, the theme would be a bit of a mix between Classic and Gothic. Think the deep jewel tones with some hints of dusty pastels and lots of antiqued gilt of Classic, but with some of the more morbid motifs of Gothic.The cafe itself would have a couple separate areas to it, but would generally be small and cozy, but with enough room to get around in petticoats!
The main area would be the actual cafe. It would contain about half a dozen round bistro tables with fancy cast iron legs and a dark wood table top and similarly designed chairs. There would be a small Victorian styled sofa or love seat off to one wall, upholstered in a jewel toned velvet or brocade and would be decorated in a way that practically screamed "This is the perfect place to take our outfit shots!". It would be, of course, a very well lit sofa. The walls would be papered in dark Victorian styled wallpaper and sprinkled heavily with art and prints from girly pop surreal artists and a few antique photos and prints thrown in for good measure.
The menu would feature gourmet teas and coffee and would include some thematically appropriate blends, like the kind of teas offered by Grey Brews. Besides tea and coffee the cafe would offer a rotating menu of small pastries and other treats that go well with tea and coffee. To take a cue from the EGL Comm's blog about this topic, food and drinks would be served in dainty, but miss-matched, tea cups and saucers.
Oh my goodness this is perfect. *A* The uniform, the idea, everything!!!ReplyDelete
If you had free wi-fi I would LIVE in your cafe.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great little place..too bad it doesn't exist.ReplyDelete
I love this idea! Thinking of a Lolita cafe, I only got so far as a pastel sweet-lolita paradise, but I love the idea of a classic/gothic cafe!ReplyDelete
Also, the well-lit place for outfit shots is definitely a nice touch. If I ever get to open my own boutique, I'm definitely keeping that in mind!
THIS UNIFORM HEADRESS BY ANTIQUE BEAST IS PURE LOVE *dying me*ReplyDelete
