I already have a few but I'm having a little difficulty finding others and I know some of you have a few hidden gems ^^
Thanks a lot in advance.

I am finishing up my paper for my Fashion Merchandising class about a favorite designer and of course I picked VW. She's not my favorite but, I did want to learn more about her since Lolita is a big part of my life and she is constantly talked about in my favorite manga Nana.
As I am coming to the end of the paper I thought I might put out a help wanted and see if I could gather a few more facts or sites with good information to help me make the paper just that much better.
So far I have visited her official website, wiki, and have a few books as well. If you know of any good websites that would be awesome.
I am also calling for pictures of Lolitas in rocking horse platforms or with westwood jewelry on. I wanted to add a few pictures to my paper and had a paragraph about how she is an idol among some Lolitas so I wanted to add a picture as well.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
Have a wonderful day!
EDIT: I KNOW THAT VIVIENNE WESTWOOD DOES NOT DESIGN FOR LOLITAS!!! I KNOW THAT BETWEEN HER AND THE SEX PISTOLS THEY STARTED THE PUNK REVOLUTION. I WANTED SOME A PICTURE FOR ONE PARAGRAPH IN A 10 PAGE PAPER AND A FEW PICTURES FOR A SLIDE I AM CREATING TO SHOW THE WIDE AUDIENCE THAT SHE CAPTIVATES. I DO NOT NEED A HISTORY LESSON. I SPENT THE LAST TWO WEEKS ON THAT. I JUST WANT SOME PICTURES. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE PICTURES THAT'S FINE - I DON'T MIND. I AM JUST ASKING FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO SHARE.
I just wonder if anyone out here has a picture at Meta´s Rabbit-chan Ponytails (a couple of years ago). I prefer it to be the off-white x black. Because I want to do some of my own, and it’s easiest to se with those colours. I saw that someone was selling the black x black one. But it’s was really hard to see the details.
For the girls and gals who can show, I'd love some MODELS! I'll need a few, just to show everyone what Sweet lolita is supposed to look like. I'd also love to have some male models who can show off kodona and ouji styles. If you're interested, please e-mail me at email@example.com or you can just post here and let me see a picture of you and tell me what you'd like to wear or what I can put you in. You'll have to supply your own dress.
As for the panel itself, anyone who would like to help me with my outline is welcome to offer information and suggestions.
Thank you all for any help you may have to offer! I'll post more information as soon as I can!

Simone also asked me to do a review of her work and I'm more than happy to ^^ As you can see the dress came out lovely. Its constructed very well and fits wonderfully. Its the first dress that I've commissioned that actually sits at my waist and falls to my knees, so I'm incredibly happy with it. The lace is all hand dyed and Simone was even kind enough to check with me on the color, offering to strip it and retry if I didn't like it. She was with me every step of the way, asking how I wanted the bows, sending me pictures. She even put up with my procrastination of sending her the fabric and still got me the dress by the date I had asked. I'm incredibly pleased that I went with her. ^^
Moving on, a while ago I noticed a small theme of people and their pets (or maybe I was imagining it, who knows xP) so I wanted to share my puppies

Okay, I'm done taking up your valuable time, I swear ♥
I would keep the elegant bit and possibly change the rest XD
Feel free to discuss why the name is important too, I'd like to read your responses on that as well.
I have two requests I was hoping the community would be able to help me out with.
1. I am looking for pictures of old Angelic Pretty items with crocheted fruit (cherries and/or strawberries, I believe). I'm not sure what season/year these were from, but I think there was at least one knit bolero/cardigan with fruit attached to it. If you have pictures of any similar items that aren't Angelic Pretty, then I would appreciate those too.

Thank you in advance!
Marie Antoinette is out today on DVD, and it has deleted scenes, making-of and an MTV Cribs style tour with Louis XVI.

So here are a few photo's from me so you know who you're dealing with haha!

I've had a look around (obviously with no luck) and I can't find any lolita-themed layouts for LiveJournal OR MySpace. Both of mine need a LOT a re-vamping, heh o_0
Could anyone help me and direct me to a nice little source or a few links, please? I know I've seen some nice AP layouts around, but it's always on someone else's computer that I find them -grimace-
I have acres of white muslin and nothing to do with it. As I'm on a limited budget I'd like to do Something with it, and I don't know if I can make petticoats, bloomers, nightgown, or even a dress. Is there anything lolita that really looks good in white muslin, or should I just wait and go shopping for better material when I have the moolah? I have no lace either but I'm a big ruffles fan.
So basically... anyone have any ideas for [inferior quality] white lolita items to make? I'm bored, and you can't shoot me here.
( Collapse )
EDIT:fixed the petticoat and bloomers pictures! sorry! ^^;;
I'm also hoping to pick up a few Gothic and Lolita Bibles while I'm there. What shops might carry them?
Unrelated: I need shoe inspiration! Post pics of your favorite shoes ever for lolita or related styles (aristo, kodona, etc)!
Thusly, I present to you the following ( Collapse )
It's hard to be loli when you're 5'8" xD
I'm considering buying the BTSSB Heart Apron (http://www.babyssb.co.jp/shopping/and/130944/130944-bw.jpg). However, there's no indication on the ideal waist size you should have to wear this. Can anyone help me?

I need help with "Lolita Lola" rocking horse shoes
I've read through all the reviews (and even sales) i can find on LJSEEK
but how the size runs is very confusing
some found it smaller and some bigger
I'm getting very nice offers for a pair of size 37 black ballerinas and a pair of size 39 red ballerinas!!
I generally wear size 38
and i'm a little concerned about the pointy toe too
my foot measures (without socks)
Heel to longest toe: 24.1 cm
foot width (widest): 9 cm
foot width to longest toe: 6 cm
Please give me advice on which shoes to get!!
Better if you can trace up your size 37/39 lola shoes and let me compare woth my own foot
Your help is much appreciated
