On September 1st, I stepped off the plane in my new home - Osaka, Japan!
Just a couple days later, I went to a big semi-annual lolita event called Romantic a la Mode. There, I purchased a handmade vintage-style hat from a brand called 薔薇hime (bara hime) and chatted with the designer.
This month, the designer invited me to join a tea party at her atelier in Kyoto! It's been difficult to meet people, so I was really happy she thought of me and extended the invitation.
