Love Note by Lolly Bag

Hold your breath, we have an invite that will set your hearts ablaze & your pheromones aflutter.
Picture this: a club night. A mood. A mini skirt. A groove. A love note from us to you.


Sweet meets salty, as Waxlily & Tested Sluts proudly & collaboratively program Lolly Bag’s next love affair with The Abercrombie in the middle of the Mardi Gras calendar.
We are on our hands & knees begging to share this line up… but pop a ticket in your basket & they pinky promise to spill all doll sooner than you can say “CDJ”.
