August's theme is From Ita to Lolita
It's the journey every lolita makes: changing from the dreaded ita into the beautiful lolita. This month, feel free to share any aspect of your transformation with us, from a timeline detailing your coordinates' improvement, to a post showing how you managed to salvage your worst lace monster.

Lolita Newbie here. I've been roaming ebay, and Angelic Pretty's San Francisco website. How long do the dresses last on Angelic Pretty's website? Until they're sold out? Until a certain time when it's considered out of style? I have two reasons to wait on buying. One: I'm saving up. I love a certain JSK and headbow that I can't wait to own. Two: I'm losing weight. I have no doubt that one day I'd be able to fit in it, it's just going to take time and not too much time at that. Any answers/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!! XD

Hello :) This is my first ever post in here since I only just bought items for my first ever lolita coord! I've been looking around for a while and decided to get a whole outfit from Taobao, so I thought i'd also make this a sort of review post.

blonde, bow, lolita, cute
I am just beginning in Lolita and although I have done a lot of research, I don't want to be labeled as an ita. I was wondering if some of the more experienced Lolitas out there could give me some advice as to how I should step into all of this.

My wardrobe is currently very small and my plans are all very simple. I have no accessories whatsoever, but I do have some decent shoes. I know the bare basics of sewing and I have people around me who are more than willing to help me with that.

The reason why I have asked for help from all of you is because I know absolutely NO ONE who is even remotely interested in thus fashion and I live in a small town. Please help me! Anything is appreciated!
thelonebamf let's break out the ita bingo cards and get ready to play:

From Ita to LOLitaCollapse ) emphasis on the LOL.

Ten years... you'd think I'd be better at this...
20th-Aug-2014 12:51 pm - Is This Good Bodyline?

(EGL and Lolita newbie ><) I'm planning to start my Lolita wardrobe,and Bodyline seems to be the most affordable for me right now. I thought the best way to introduce my parents (I'm 13) to Lolita would be buying more subdued pieces instead of Sweet. I'm really concerned about the matter of quality, because I'll have to earn the money for these, and I don't want it to go to waste...I've been doing some lurking and searching, and found so many articles/posts on good lace and material. Do these Bodyline pieces suffice?

Yumeiro Pattissiere, ichigo
I wanted to know what brands and stores to look at for male clothing. I know moi meme moite and Black Peace Now. Though I don't think Black Peace Now has an online store. Can you suggest any stores and brands for guys to wear EGA?

19th-Aug-2014 01:28 pm - August Theme: Ita to Lolita

I started my journey in lolita fashion in 2012. Although I've not been in it very long, I feel like I've come a long way.
I thought it would be fun to share my progress!
