A little bit of fun: You know you a lolita when...

I've recently moved out of my house and had to pack most of my clothes away in boxes. It then occurred to me that packed my only brand skirt badly and can't stop thinking about it. It a little silly as I know how to launder quality garments myself (having studies textiles for nearly five years now!) but it still haunts me!
I'm just wondering has anyone else had embarrassing moments like this? Silly little things that make you realise that you a lolita (or been one for a long time)?

So here is my thread to make a list of "You know your a Lolita when". Please add your own. XOXO

Check out these two (1 & 2) entries that are along the same lines

1. When you worry about caring/laundering you lolita clothes more than your everyday clothes.

2. You check if your boobs have finally become smaller, so you can fit VM and MM  Added by kurobara_alice

When you find yourself not only checking EGL, EGL Comm Sales, Ebay, and Y!Japan several times a day, but you get twitchy at work because you can't check them. Added by eristell_neko 

4. When you are packing to move and your clothes take up the largest suitcase but all your books, non-Lolita clothes, and other necessities fit into the smaller one. Added by sparklewolfie 

5. When you buy some things on mbok and tell yourself "okay, no more!" but then see something else cute and tell yourself "but this one is okay, because it's my DREAM DRESS!" and buy that too. Then you have to sell more things. Added by viscuslunasol
