Hello everyone! This is my first time posting and I also recently just acquired my first lolita dress which also happens to be my number one dream dress.

BTSSB Disney's Snow White Ivory OP!

So my friend is a photographer and offered to take photos of me but I really want my coord to be nice so that when I post the photos online they look appealing.

Now presenting a lousy photoshop job I've done of all the items I was thinking I could use together.

13th-Jun-2015 08:55 am - Storage Solutions for Lolita
So I was looking around online for a dress form when I came across this beauty (minus the clothes)


Found here: http://www.storesupply.com/pc-14306-882-the-boutique-cobblestone-spiral-rack-60484.aspx

I just thought it would be perfect for a Lolita's closet. It would display the clothes nicely. I want to make my studio look like a boutique!

What storage solutions do you already use or think would be great for Lolita?
12th-Jun-2015 02:25 pm - Book print jsk?
Awhile back I saw an image of a book print jsk.  The skirt had a pattern of book spines and the bodice was a dark color that wasn't black (and may have been velvet).  It was worn with a blouse and modeled by a girl standing in what I'm assuming was a library, right in front of some sort of a railing.  I now can't find that picture anywhere.

So frustration aside, I'm asking for any book print JSK.  Images, links, anything.  The closest I've found to what I'm looking for is Innocent World's Royal Library, but I'm still looking for anything even remotely similar.  (I'm looking to make a book jsk in the near future, so inspiration and pictures are much needed.)

10th-Jun-2015 01:44 pm - LJ Sales Comm v. LaceMarket?
Forest
A simple question, where do you prefer to shop?

I've liked the set up from LM since the moment it opened. Despite it's glitches, it seems simple to use, easy to look at and overall a better system. However, I've recently run into some minor emergencies and I'm cleaning out my Lolita wardrobe, trying to sell about 90% of it (a good portion of which is brand) and I'm having the worst luck. I've price cut some items so much I feel like I'm practically giving them away at this point and still no bites. I wonder, even if I prefer LM, is it really just a wasteland in terms of selling anything? Do most Lolitas still stick to the tried and true Sales Comm? Or has the Lolita market overall just taken a huge nosedive? I know Facebook is another option but I've never sold there before and hate the way FB is set up, especially since it's not really supposed to be used to sell things.

Your opinions?

9th-Jun-2015 01:45 pm - Sweet Lolita Room Tour
Ello~~ (///u///) I've been into lolita for about 7 months now and decided to do a quick room tour for my blog. This is my first time filming myself. Anyone is welcome to view it. :) Thank you so much if you do like it!

Quick thing: I only have two replicas and since then do not buy anymore. :) I stick to brand or indie.

9th-Jun-2015 02:42 pm - Any suggestions?
I want to be a life style lolita. Though I am not sure if I could follow through with it. Is there any tips that you guys have for me to continue and have an easier time? Thank you ^_^

6th-Jun-2015 11:07 pm - Best Hairstyles for Lolita?
I'm getting my hair cut in a month or 2 and I'm curiouse what kind of haircuts you girls have to match your lolita wardrobes? I typically keep my hair long and just wear pigtails but I want some other options as well. Any ideas? (I know that wigs are big in lolita but I want a good hair style for when I'm not wearing a wig.) (btw my hair is brown and I'm not opposed to dyeing my hair)
