Everything Is Yours To Lose {Amsterdam 2016}


I went to visit Summer Tales Boutique in Houten whilst I was in Amsterdam! I had never been to a physical lolita shop before, and they were putting on special events (cake and tea!) for days surrounding Under the Sea so it was definitely worth making the trip out.

Lots of my packed outfits featured ankle socks, because The Netherlands was in the middle of a heatwave when I visited. The socks and the blouse both have raised polkadots on them, but I am bad at remembering to get detail shots!

Summer Tales Boutique sells handmade pieces and accessories, and Innocent World as well. I tried on the Innocent World jacket in the corner of this picture, but the sleeves were too short. I'm glad I got the chance to try it before paying and being disappointed when it arrived.

Accessories were the focus of the shop, with a whole range from basic to elaborate over-the-top designs in all of the substyles. I really liked the resin accessories that seemed to be new (I didn't remember them from events Summer Tales Boutique have been at before), and the headbows were gorgeous with lots of different laces. Everything seemed of a high quality and to have been made from good materials and with attention to detail. I bought glittery seashell accessories for my Sunday outfit and a black velvet headbow because it was really lovely and that's all the justification I needed to get it!

  1. Summer Tale Boutique looks so cute! I really wish we had a lolita store in my corner or Australia. There is one place in Melbourne I believe that sells some AP and IW, but I don't think it's a dedicated lolita-only store.

    Your outfit is really cute too, I love your choice of hairstyle.


I appreciate all the comments I get, and while I don't always manage to reply to them (especially not as quickly as I'd like!), I do read them all and enjoy hearing people's thoughts.
