Back in October, I purchased my first lolita dress and decided to attempt it. I used it as a Halloween (my excuse to "try out the style") and purchased the dress from Rakuen because it wasn't too expensive. I don't think I pulled off "lolita" (like, all the rules and stuff like shape of skirt and proper use of a good petticoat) but I did succeed in trying out the fundamentals of the style. Is it for me? A lot of people (boyfriend, friends) loved
it and my mom thought I looked cute, also. When I wore it to college on Halloween, a lot of people liked it, also, and although people don't USUALLY randomly insult you, I didn't get any negative remarks.
So, I'll point out what I think I did wrong and I'd like it if people here would tell me:
- if the style is good for me
- if I totally butchered the style and did everything wrong and should stop before I go buy brand clothing
- what I did wrong/what could be improved
- anything else
People say "dress for yourself" but I mean, I wouldn't walk out nude because I like it, but everyone else didn't. So as much as I love lolita, if everyone else thinks I don't look good in it, I wouldn't wear it (not often, anyway). I do dress for myself, but I also dress to represent myself, and I think that's true for a lot of people. You don't go to a job interview wearing something inappropriate because you're dressing for yourself.
You dress for the employer unless, of course, you don't really want the job. :3 ( Collapse )
Thanks a lot!
