(no subject)

Took one look at this and it abruptly dropped my dream outfit to 2nd priority(is probably cheaper too) XD. Thought some of you would appreciate it ^.^ If this isn't loli then I'm forcing it to be starting today.

Are these shoes available anywhere besides Milanoo?

I found a pair of shoes that I loved at first sight on polyvore. I followed the links and found out they were from Milanoo.
But after all the bad stories and reviews and everything, I don't feel good about buying from them.
Does anybody know any other shop that sells them that is most likely to be trustworthy?
I would need a size 26 and I am in love with these styles:

Any help is very appreciated! :) Thank you!

Past Tense.

I've been a part of the EGL community for a long time now and I feel as though I've come a long way both as a loli and as a person. When I first posted here I didn't know anything about the fashion and was young and stupid and immature.

For that reason, I decided to post a remake of the first photo I ever posted in lolita. Unfortunately time, my tripod and the weather (poor lighting) weren't on my side this morning when I tried to take this photo, but never the less I hope you like it.

Lolita has grown to mean a lot to me and I've met so many amazing people through this community. Thank you girls for everything.♥

Holding Value?

Do you think AP's Starry Night Theater is considered a rare print? Do you think the JSKs (both styles, all colors) will hold their values? I know red and blue strapless are the rarest.

Sorry if this question has been asked before. I used the search box but you all know how random the results can be.

Lolita on "What Not to Wear"

Well apparently there was a lolita on "What Not to Wear"  once and I personally haven't seen it but I did see that this community had a big discussion about it. I'm not sure about how this community works around 'necromancy' of old threads so I figured I;d post a new one...

I know a lot of people were upset with Stacy and Clinton 'not knowing anything about Japanese street fashion' etc. etc. and yes, I do agree that people who are in the fashion industry should know about fashion in other cultures.  I know a lot of you jumped right up in that girl's defense (of course, we wanna help a fellow lolita out) and I do know that a lot of you were also upset that she did not describe the fashion well and had represented us in popular media.

The thing is that I think her situation could have been completed avoided with some tact on her part... her boss had apparently given her tonnes of warnings that the way she was dressing was inappropriate.  I don't know about you, but if my boss tells me not to dress a certain way to work then I really won't dress that way again...  Next, the condition of the show was to get rid of her old wardrobe so she could go buy a new one with $5000 shopping by Stacy and Clinton's 'rules' ... so in the end, she could have refused.

Lolita is a legitimate street fashion, like goth, punk, ganguro etc.  and hey, it's there in the name, STREET fashion... I wear lolita in my free time, if I walk into my office wearing an Angelic Pretty OP I would probably get sent home... and same with if I came to work in punk clothes, even if my skirt is a decent length and my clothes aren't ripped.

That's really what I was getting at here... that there's a time and place for Lolita and if you get warnings from superiors that your standard of dress is inappropriate, then please don't wear it to work! Or just tone it down... a plainer solid colour jsk with opaque stockings and ballet flats is probably ok.

Call for Artists

Lolita in Wonderland: A festival of Japanese street fashion.

Call for Artists

Calling all Lolita artists, designers and performers.

We are looking for creatives to be a part of a Lolita and J-fashion event on Saturday February the 27th in London, England.
The event is a festival about all aspects of Lolita fashion and will involve a fair during the day with art, games, workshops, talks, tea and cake, then an evening party with music, dancing and performances.
The venue for the event is Resistance Gallery; a multifunctional arts, performance and gallery space, so there is scope to display art by a number of Lolita artists and for several Lolita performers to take to the stage.

More details about the festival for guests will be available as soon as the main details are confirmed.
