Frills... Beating the Heat

Alright ladies the summer is upon us. And with all the outdoor activities communities are putting together, picnics, walks, gardens and cherry blossom festivals, etc. I want to know your quick tips on keeping cool in the summer heat.

I came up with....
+ A fan, any kind, even those little motor powered ones (that would look SUPER cute deco'd haha!)
+ A parasol, or even a simple umbrella to block the sun.
+ And though the smell isn't very loli, sunblock might be nice if your pale and burn easily. (*cough*90%-of-us*cough*) And on that note please use deodorant and or a body spray. T.T

+ As few layers as possible, so a petticoat yes, but no bloomers or very light bloomers/simple shorts
+ Wear regular knee high socks instead of OTK or stockings
+ Short sleeve blouse vs. long sleeve
+ Tea party shoes instead of boots...
+ DRINK LOTS OF WATER. No matter how un-lolita a water bottle is, I recommend one.

EDIT: And I'm going to add this last one in honor of META's line, for the love of loli... choose cotton over latex. XD

When I get really hot in lolita I start twirling around, jumping and dancing, it gets some good breeze/air flow going. XD

Designer Lolita

Hello everyone, this is a simple question I've been wondering lately. Would anyone here actually be interested in lolita at a designer level and price point ($1000+)? Is there a market for such a thing? Please post why you would or wouldn't, I'm interested in anyone and everyone's answers.

Hello, everyone :)
I'm Laffi, and I've been a lolita since late 2008, so just over 2 years now :3
And I'm currently 14 years old, 15 in September.
When I did start, I had been lurking egl and the handbook for a good month or two, so unfortunately I don't have myself decked out in any black & white scratchy lace ita!dresses  xD
