Schneewittchen

Hi dolls,

last saturday, we had another Lolita meet-up. Maybe some of you remember, last year we were at an event during the Belle Epoque week in Kandersteg? This themed week is organized every year, so we decided to attend again!
We met around noon and first went to the Belle Epoque Hotel Victoria, where the lady from Hut und Haube was selling her amazing hats. Such pieces of art, I wish wearing hats like these would still be appropriate!




Afterwards, we went to take some pictures. The day before, it had snowed like 30cm of fresh snow, but on Saturday the weather was really perfect: blue sky, bright sun. I had decided to wear my Snow White jsk for the occasion!

Again with Pyl

With the amazingly elegant Lea
 When we walked to the Hotel Doldenhorn, where an afternoon tea would be held, we came by this amazing old-fashioned car! So of course we had to take a picture with it! (^.^)

Btw, the coat is handmade by me, too
The afternoon tea was beautiful, like last year. All these stunnigly dressed ladies and gentlemen, and the tea and food was delicious, too.


During the tea, they presented a fur fashion show. I was a bit disappointed, though. I don't support the industry of fur and animal breeding for it at all *, however, I was curious about the designs they would show. Sadly, most of the presented garments weren't my taste at all. Also, the models ran past our table rather fast, so I almost missed a few. It would have been nicer if they had taken some time to present themselves.
Other than that, I was a nice day, I enjoyed myself. People were all very nice to us and kept giving compliments! (^.^) It was also funny how most people on the streets took pictures openly, because there are a lot of visitors and locals who dress up in historic costumes for the occasion, so we didn't stick out particulary.

* I'm against animal cruelty of all kinds. The organisator of the fashion show is a peltmonger from Berne who claims to use fur from animal-friendly breeding, whatever that means. I would never ever buy real fur newly. However, I don't have any problems with vintage fur items. I also think that fur, feathers, leather and other animal artefacts are wonderful materials for dressmaking. Have you ever heard from Roadkill Couture by Eaton Nott? They make amazing fashion from road kill, animals that have been killed on street accidents and so on. Always better than burning them, in my humble opinion.

So, and if you made it untill here, I have a bonus picture for you: me taking photos, very concentrated, very serious, very derpy
