Looking for some westwood help and a picture call!

Hello Everyone!

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.

Meta´s Rabbit-chan Ponytails? (Not a WTB)

Hi,

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.


Best regards

Sweet Lolita Panel at Anime Matsuri

Hiya! I just wanted to let you girls know about Anime Matsuri. The con (will be held in Houtson, TX) will be hosting both a Sweet Lolita panel and a Gothic Lolita panel due to popular demand for seperate lolita panels. While I'm upset that they made things so black and white and really chopped up my plans, I still hope to make my half of the lolita panels a fantastic one. That being said, the panel will take place Friday, April 27th at 5pm in Panel Room 2. Any lolitas who can come should. It'll be great!

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 makime_the_pink@hotmail.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!

Last week my commissioned dress from Simone (kawaii_mon) showed up and I fell in love. I waited to take pictures of it because I have shoes that are on the way, but I had the house to myself this morning and I'm impatient so I took a few crappy photos xP

Collapse )

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 ♥

Possible name change

I was talking with neonstilettos, and while sometimes it is fun to play on the complicated and nuanced connotation of the name, if you could rename Gothic Lolita, what would you call the fashion?

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.

Two requests, if you please.

Good afternoon,

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!

Layouts, anyone?

This is a bit of an abstract question, I know ^__^
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-

What to make..

So, this is pretty pointless- if you're in a hurry don't bother reading it.
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.

For those of you who visit BtSSB stores, what's the stock like in relation to their website? Given that there are only roughly three items in stock on the website at any given time I know they must have many more things in the store than on the page, but is it mostly things that have recently sold out online or things that were never posted? I'm harboring a deep desire to increase the amount of plaid in my wardrobe and am just curious if it would be worth commissioning a buying service to go in person for me.

Paris?

Hello! I don't really post that often, but I'm finally getting my loli wardrobe started! This Friday I leave for Paris, and I was wondering about the store "Harajuku" (mentioned here). For those of you who've visited recently: is it still true that they don't have much in the way of accessories? I'm looking to get a bag and maybe some jewlery.

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)!

Thanks! ♥

LOLA Rocking horse shoes help!

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
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

size conversion?

i haven't seen any recent posts about shoe size. i'm a size 8-10 in US with a wide foot..what would that translate to in japan? probably i'm to big, i'm pretty sure i don't fit their outfits but i was still curious if i had a chance fitting their shoes.
