My new BtSSB dress! ♥ *so happy*

My trip to San Francisco was pretty short, but on the top of my to-do list was to visit the Baby, the Stars Shine Bright store. ^_^ The Baby store in San Francisco is the only one in the US, and one of a few that are outside of Japan. Baby, The Stars Shine Bright is a Japanese brand that specializes in lolita clothing.  The shop is located inside of the New People building in Japantown. :)

I can't believe it! My very first Baby, the Stars Shine Bright dress! 
(I also purchased a petticoat & a blouse, but those are kinda boring! ;)

134★295 Take A Walk With Usakumya-chan JSK
$304: comes in pink, red, & black

Isn't it just the cutest thing?! It makes me feel like a princess when I wear it. ♥ My shopping experience at SF Baby store was amazing! The store was big and had lots to choose from and the shop girls were incredibly nice and helpful.  and It was also nice to talk to the staff and be able to understand everything they were saying! ^_^

In the picture above, you can see how nicely they packaged my purchase.  Everything is folded and wrapped in tissue paper and then slid into a sealable plastic bag before being put into the sturdy paper bag with the Baby logo on it! They also gave me a postcard, sticker and a point card. ^_^

Here are some pictures from inside the store:

When you try on any clothing the shop girls are more than willing to help you zip up, lace up and tie waist ties. One thing I didn’t know previously is that when a dress has lacing up the back you are not supposed to pull it tight when you tie it. The lace that the ribbon is laced through is very delicate and can be stretched and distorted very easily. The back should be loosely laced up and tied into a bow. 

I think I broke the bank on this shopping trip... ;)
