have any of you ever worn vintage items like these in a lolita context? i have this fabulous brown/cream ruffly gingham vintage dress that i'm contemplating wearing to a "goth" tea party, and i'm going back and forth on whether or not it would work.
p.s. i'm new here. hello!
EDIT: pictures of the dress under cut- i appologize for the terrible quality. i don't have a real camera, so i usually just get friends to take pictures of me when they have the time.

I just like to share when I find something that I think someone might appreciate.

For my first question, I was wondering about the patterns in the Bible magazines. Do they really help when designing? My mother is willing to help me make some lolita designs I thought of, so I was just curious.(I'm mainly concerned about getting the shape of skirts,dresses,blouses, etc. right if I design anything)
Second question is about the brand F+F. I haven't heard the most great things about this brand but I find most of their outfits to be very adorable! I wanted to see others opinions about this brand. Is their quality fairly good? I've heard that they sometimes are not the best at communication? Anyway, I just wanted others opinions on this before I ever order anything. I would order from Moitie but it's a little too expensive for me right now. I was also considering ordering from Innocent World too.
I also have another question(sorry for all these questions ^.^') I love the EGL and EGA look, as well as Classic Lolita, but I do not see what separates Classic from EGL or vise versa? I've also heard that EGL and EGA is only when talking about Mana's brand only? This confuses me a little also.
Any information anyone has would be very much appreciated! ^.^
Anyways. I don't own anything "brand" so I don't have anything to compare my own stuff to up close, I need some opinions from you lovely ladies :D
what brand of cutsew top do you own?
what size do you normally wear t-shirts in, how do they compare?
what would you change about your brand cutsew top to make it better? (more comfortable, prettier?)
Is there any lace sewn on? is the lace flat, or would it "stretch" when worn?
Anything else you'd like to share? (link to it on the website, photos, etc)
DELICIOUS GOTHIC LOLITAS AT LAST! (thanks to the person who pointed them out! :3)
The site itself seems to be some sort of giant collective of Finnish hipsters who are taking the vintage thriftstore + 80s revival + Japanese street fashion mishmash much farther than the UN has authorized. Acid-washed jeans are an abomination unto the Lord and he sports them to the Saturday night loft party shall be struck down with boils and pestilence.
I find it interesting that these Lolitas are all so young. In the GLB you usually see girls between 15-20 in Lolita, but in the West it seemed to be a fashion for the older crowd because of the expense and effort it takes to obtain Lolita clothing. Now that Lolita is getting more widely available and cheaper, we're seeing younger Lolitas and a ton of Sweet Lolitas.
I miss you Gothics! Come out of hiding!
And before you ask this is Cory Kennedy. No comments on her. I think the picture of her climbing out of a dumpster at a hipster party one night says it all.
Anyway, I'd be interested in seeing opinions on combining Lolita with your everyday wear, similar to the new trend of taking high-fashion pieces and dressing them down with ordinary clothing. (Like taking your Chanel black dress and wearing it with cowboy boots from the thrift store).
I think a lot of people mistake Lolita for cosplay simply because a lot of people just wear Lolita on weekends, to meetups, or to conventions. In Japan the younger Lolitas don't wear it everyday because they've got school uniforms, but I know that the more mature crowd does wear it on a daily basis, usually with less formality. daily_lolita is pretty great because you get to see people in what they put on just for running around in, but I'd really like to see examples of how people wear Lolita in their wardrobe without it being 100% Lolita. For instance, pairing a cutsew with jeans. Not a Lolita outfit at all, but still quite girly, particularly if you accessorize it cutely. Also, what do you buy in stores when you are trying to get everyday pieces into your closet that follow Lolita aesthetics? I buy a lot of jumpers at H&M and Forever 21, although the recent shapeless trend is a real turnoff for me.
So let's have a community discussion:
1) Pairing Lolita with other things in a "wardrobe remix"? How do you get more versatility out of those expensive little dresses?
2) Lolitas vs hipsters. The epic battle?
3) Where are your favorite shops to find things which aren't outright Lolita but that a Lolita might like? (I am looking at you European Lolitas particularly.)
4) Post your favorite non-Japanese brand, non-Lolita brand "lucky finds". Like the H&M party dress with the flocking that everyone loved so much as a dressy Lolita piece.

I literally do not own any black lolita clothing, besides what I just bought, so I was wondering what ya'll think about this coordination:
I was wondering, does anyone know the size of the Innocent World polka dot flared onepiece in the Gothic and Lolita Bible Extra 2? I've heard IW sizes tend to run small, and the GLB Extra is pretty expensive (ahh, curse Kinokuniya's prices!), so yeah I'd like to know if anyone can help me with the size of the OP, and maybe the other brand clothing pattern/projects inside. Thank you~ =)
(i'm new too. >D greetings)
Anyways, a couple of moar pics of Saturday's meetup. :'D
