Hello everyone~! =D

How have you been? ere are a few new updates for Black Alice. =D

Embracing Spring Time

The April's Spring theme party was just over and it was held in the beautiful Lawry's The Prime Ribs restaurant located at Mandarin Gallery. The attendance was overwhelming with 30 pretty dressed up lolitas! It was great that everyone dressed up to the spring theme, lots of pastel colors and flowers, and different styles too! There's classic,sweet style with some gothic lolitas mixed in between and also a sailor lolita~

Black Alice has our own private menu, all thanks to Lawry's~




Here are two of the tables located within the 3 private rooms for Black Alice



Special mention to Liping, the lolita located on the left of the Lawry's sign. She's the first place winner of the Best Coordination: Spring Theme. Congratulations!

Please do look forward to the next theme party happening in May~! =D

Dear Lolitas,


we are pleased to announce that other than the previous special sale for selected items, we are also having an arrival of a new batch of Innocent World lolita items at Black Alice located at TheBlogShop@Haji Lane!

Although with the recent Singapore's hot and humid weather, lolita is still wearable. =D It is all about the items, the cutting and the materials. Thus, we bring to you short sleeved blouse, cotton and chiffon items and light weight JSKs and boleros that can be easily paired together! All JSKs are in short length too~ A good way to combat the heat while still keeping the lolita aesthetic!

Available for reservations are also the Innocent World's new series: Strawberry Jam High, available here: http://www.innocent-w.jp/shopping/reserve_e.html

Shop items will be available at Black Alice physical store from late Wednesday onwards =D Please do head down to take a look and of course try the items on~  You can experience for yourself why many lolita love Innocent World, the great quality material, the toned-down but still sweet-classical feel that can bring you from tea parties to shopping with friends and of course the superb cutting that can fit a variety of body shapes!



And also if you have any ideas for the new tea parties: places or games you would love to try out together with other lolitas, please do mail in to Grace@blackalice.com, as we are always looking for different ways to make all everything more exciting for everyone =D Cause at Black Alice, we keep every girl's dream alive~

Black Alice: New Storefront at Haji Lane @ The Blog Shop (2 Mar 11)

 Black Alice
Wednesday, 2 March 2011
By Tim Wong

Dear ladies,
Hope you have been well recently. I've been a little busy with work from Black Alice and EOY, but still wanted to take the time to write. I really enjoy writing in the BA newsletter, attending tea parties and looking at all the nice Loli prints.

Just yesterday, someone was asking me, "Did you get into the Loli fashion business because of your wife?"
Interestingly, and perhaps to a little bit of a shock to me as well, I told her that it was actually the other way round.

I previously mentioned that we're in the midst of looking for spaces to rent for Black Alice, and I'm glad to announce that we've mananged to secure a space, and we are open from immediate effect:

Black Alice @ The Blog Shop
35 Haji Lane
Singapore 188228
Mon-Thur: 1pm - 8 pm
Fri, Sat, Sun: 12 pm - 10 pm
5 min walk from Bugis MRT
http://theblogshop.sg/index.php/2009/08/29/virtual-tour#virtual_tour

Some special items include:
BABY Lucky Packs
- 1 x Original OP Set
- 1 x JSK Set
- 1 x Accessories Set
BABY Dance of the Cats Series
Angelic Pretty French Cafe Series in Red and Blue

We have just a couple more of BABY JSK/Accessories Lucky Packs, but can't place all of them there due to the lack of space. The JSK/Accessories lucky pack is going for $309 and $109 respectively. Please let us know if you wish to purchase more than one, or if the store's get sold out!

Please note the following changes with the shift:
- Due to logistical issues, 5% VIP discounts and vouchers cannot be applied for in-store purchases at Haji Lane
- 5% VIP discounts and vouchers will continue to apply/can be used for personal orders via BABY, AP & IW
- Orders may be arranged to be collected at the shop, or mailed/courier to your location, or during tea parties (within 1 week)

I'm really happy that though smaller, we have a Black Alice store front again. I remember that I once promised that I will look around for a space, and reopen when the chance permits. There are 2 fitting rooms , so please do drop by to try on the dresses, and have a look at our new place.

Really appreciate all the support that we have received so far. It's been a great honor, experience and lots of fun running Black Alice.

On a side note, I'm catching up with Shiseido over the next few weeks, and will be trying to arrange for an advanced make up class in the following months, so keep a lookout for the mailer.

I'll see you all during the next tea party.

Have a great week!

black_alice_sg
 Dear Loli's,
It's the last day of 2010, and I hope it has been a great year for you so far. 2010 was a year of challenges and also a year of changes for me. I've been looking around for "Select Shop" locations, like a mini retail front. It's a bit like renting a locker at Toy Outpost/Simply Toys. I've seen some fashion blog shop spaces like that at Far East Plaza; if you have came across places like that, please do recommend!

I thought it'll be nice to at least have a small retail front that you ladies can try some of the new arrivals that we get each month.

On a side note, I'm now hiring an executive assistant to help out with responsibilities at Black Alice, as Grace is going into full time. Working hours are flexible at 25 hours per month, which means you work about 2-3 times a week.

The good thing is that you can work from home, school or during your free time. We'll catch up over a meal once a month, to get updates from you. Job responsibilties include:

Writing/reply emails
Consolidating orders
Writing newsletter
Updating Facebook and blog
Planning for events
Submitting orders
Processing, invoicing customers
Scheduling deliveries and appointments
Misc secretarial responsibilities

25 hours per month @ $6.40 / hour
$5 mobile phone allowance

Looking for individuals who are self motived, good with details, positive working attitude and familiar with the local Lolita community. Basically I'm looking for someone to take good care of Black Alice.

Interested applicants, please write in to me and attach your resume (if you have one) with the following details:

====

Name (as in NRIC):
NRIC Number:
Contact Number:
Email:
Residential Address:
