NYC TODAY! We will be meeting today at 1pm at 85th and 5th/Central Park East. Don't forget!
I think I may have missed the boat. So to speak.
I think I'm too old for Lolita.
I'm almost twenty four. I have a three and a half year old daughter. I got pregnant with her when I was nineteen... The years passed, I concentrated on being a mother, my sense of identity and fashion fell to the side. I realize now that I still wear Hello Kitty t-shirts and knee high stripped socks (for example), same stuff I wore when I was nineteen, appropriate then but not now.
I've found Lolita fashion now. I adore it. All I would need for a lolita wardrobe would be the petticoats and skirts.
But I'm starting to think that I'm too old. Maybe not too old in the sense of age. But I'm 23 with a child.
I guess my question is... Can someone who dresses in Lolita fashion be a mother? I have it in my head for some reason that I have to dress and act my age now, cause I'm a mother.
(and oh my I hope this post is alright for this community.)
Last year I know there were many attempts at organising a big J-fashion/Lolita meetup in London.
Some ended up as gatherings.
But this Summer, goddamnit I'm going to try.
The UK Jrock scene is... well spread, lets say. Even in holiday-time there is still the "No money for train fare D:" issue. Hence the early organisation, so hopefully people can get their shit sorted if they really want to go.
- I am thinking a Saturday. Either Saturday 28th July OR Saturday 4th August.
- I am thinking a picnic in a nice park (Hyde park?) and/or a shopping trip.
- I am thinking not a strict dress code, though obviously it would be nice. But I don't want people going "I don't have any cool clothes! People will hate me!" because that is bollocks, and if anybody looks down on anyone else for not being "cool" enough I will personally tell them to GTFO.
- Obviously, any other ideas are welcome.
But what I really want to know is WHO IS INTERESTED IN ATTENDING?
(And if you would bring friends then please give a general number)
P.S. If you are in my cru then you just know I'm going to beg you to come anyway because I haven't seen you in too long and I'm getting crack withdrawals.
I don't think this has been discussed (or if so, in a while anyway . . . ) I know people ask why others have gotten into lolita and such, and there's always debates about that. But I want to know:
Why did you choose the certain lolita that you wear?
Sorry, phrased weirdly. I mean, if you like gothic, why did you choose to be a gothic lolita. Or if you like sweet, why sweet? Is it physical reasons? That you think it looks best on you because of your face, figure, etc? Or other reasons?
I'm just a curious person . . . although curiosity got Alice in trouble, I guess I need a crazy dream to learn. XP
Hello fellow lolis!
This summer I'm planning on remodeling my room. Because I hate it right now. But first things first, I need to re-paint it!
So, what colors would you suggest? I've been thinking of pastel colors, but I'd love any suggestion. Once it's not black. Or white. ORRR yellow.
Also, I've very hesitant about putting up any type of wallpaper or uh, those paper border-things [the last one I had totally messed up the top of my walls] but aren't there those fancy brushes that have the patterns already on them? Would you suggest something like that?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Is 17 inches pushing it as far as short length is concerned.
I commissioned a skirt from a friend, and it came back shorter then expected.
they had a no return policy or exchange..
it's 17 inches and I was thinking maybe wearing white tights,
since its a white skirt (not completely but partially)..
btw my height is 5'4
Just a little blurb for today.
Perhaps this is just me and stems from my many, many years of poor self-body image, but...
I have noticed that many girls here call themselves "fatty-chan"s. I understand that it's not intended to be demeaning, but I just can't help but feel bad every time I see someone call herself that. In real life, I think it's pretty mean to say someone is a fatty, even if that someone is themself. It's as if she doesn't think she's the same (or possibly even as good) as other lolis!
I can just imagine a girl to come on here who thinks her bodiy is perfectly fine--until she see a girl smaller than herself who deems herself as a fatty.
Do girls feel they are expected to call themselves fatties because they don't fit in to all of the clothes that come from a country of (generally) smaller people?
Perhaps I'm being a bit over-sensitive... and I don't know if I'm making too much sense...
Discuss! Even if you disagree with me, I'd like to hear your views on the subject.
We can't possibly wear lolita ALL of the time, right? So...
What do you wear when you're not wearing lolita? Describe! Post pictures!
