I was just reading some posts here on EGL about closets and such, and it kind of got me thinking about this.
Are repeating coordinates looked down upon in Lolita fashion?
I mean, repeats are always sort of "awkward" when it comes to any fashion, but Lolita is really expensive and sticks out a whole lot more than others and very limited in quantities. Some people even plan a whole coordinate, possibly? (I do!)
I would assume it might be more understandable if the Lolita is very new and has a small closet, but would it be a fashion crime to wear the exact coordinate again afterward? I mean, we're not celebrities, so we see repeats all the time. Regardless, is it still abhorring?
I especially wanna know from you Lolitas who have been in it for awhile and possibly have a big closet. Do you repeat coordinates you have worn before? Do you repeat it exactly or try to change it up a bit? Do you repeat it only after a certain of time has passed? Do you sell it once you've worn it or buy new things for it?
I have a habit that once I find a coordinate in my closet, whether its Lolita or everyday casual, I stick with it. If I can change it up I will, but that just means I'll alternate between the two and so on. Of course, you won't be seeing that shirt or JSK again until the next month at the very least.
Let me know what you guys think!
