Last night saw a celebration to mark the 3rd anniversary for Grimoire, as well as marking the opening for it's sister store, Grimoire Almadel. It was a bit of a costume party, so you'll find everyone's outfits a bit exaggerated and over-the-top even for Dolly Kei.
On the main Grimoire blog, the post on the event (posted by Kaori?) is giving a lot of thanks, and definitely appreciative of the support from fans and customers over the years. It also says the dj was really good, everyone was dressed really well, and the dancing was really great. That the party was lively and felt like a dream. It also says that FRUITS documented the event as well, so hopefully we'll see some snaps from them as well!

The Grimoire Almadel blog also has an entry on the party, posted by Hitomi. She thanks everyone, and says she and the staff were very surprised and happy about the turnout and how lovely everyone was dressed.
The Grimoire Almadel blog also has a complete outfit snap and rundown for each Grimoire/Almadel staff member. There's one for everyone, but my favorites are:
Heri, "Lady Knight in the Dark"
Easily one of the most gorgeous hair pieces I've ever seen.
Saki, "Deep Night Dancer in forest"
She definitely went a bit risqué with this look. I was surprised when I saw it, but she looks amazing! And again, another amazing hair piece.
Kaori, "Golden Phoenix"
I love how she looks a bit Marie Antoinette-ish.

I love looking back at the anniversary party snaps from the last three years, and seeing how Dolly Kei has developed and evolved over this period. As well as how the personal styles of the shop staff have changed and become so uniquely their own. Here's to many more years of Grimoire and Dolly Kei to come!
