So, I've noticed some posters seem to be concerned with where their clothing comes from and how it's produced recently. So I thought I'd offer the topic up for discussion! I've always been a huge fashion and makeup person, and I remember the days I used to fork over cash for my newest dream item, and not really thinking twice about how it was produced or where it came from. These days, however, in my old age,(25 is getting there for Lolita. Haha) I find myself more concerned on my impact as a consumer...and I'm curious, who else does as well?
I'd to see this post as an outlet for some information, too! Like, what Lolita brands are sweat shop free? Which ones use leather or fur, and which ones don't? Which ones are independent, etc.
PS: Debate and drama are two different things. :) Let's keep it respectful.
PPS: I'm not trying to make this a who's more ethical than who kind of thing. I'm not perfect, that's for sure! This is a thread for peeps who just like to be informed of where stuff came from so they can keep that in mind.
So, as most all of you know, International Lolita Days are on the first Saturdays of June and December. That means that tomorrow, June 5th, is the first International Lolita Day of 2010!
What are your guys' plans for this day? What will you wear? Care to post photos here in this thread when the day is over?
Are their any lolitas in the Chicago area who might want to get together for the occasion?
Hope you all can have a great Saturday tomorrow~! : )
I want to order a couple of dresses and a petticoat from QutieLand. I E-Mailed QutieLand (before checking out or officially agreeing to buy) asking some questions about the ordering process and asking if I could get a headbow (made by the same brand as one of dresses I want) in a color to match that dress.
So, I sent that E-Mail about 6-7 days ago, and got no reply. I then double-checked that I was sending it to the right address (firstname.lastname@example.org ----I'm pretty sure that's right), and sent it again, a couple of days ago. No reply to that, either. I've always heard that QutieLand has great communication, so I was wondering if I'm doing something wrong.
1. Does QutieLand simply ignore you if you haven't agreed to buy already?
2. Am I sending my questions to the wrong address?
3. Do you just have to wait a long time before they get back to you?
I've tried the 'chat' function on the QutieLand site, but I've never seen them on it.
Anyway, any help would be much appreciated!
In the photo on Bodyline's website, the "yellow" looks dull and tan-ish. Does anyone own the dress in yellow? Is the color in the photo accurate?
This post is an attempt to answer the monthly theme. I happen to admire lolita mothers a lot.
Just to specify, by "lolita mothers" I mean lolitas who are also mothers, not mothers of lolitas.
I know there are a few of you out there (I am not a mother myself), and I was curious about certain things like when you first "discovered" lolita, how you introduced lolita to your families, specifically your children, and if your child/children is/are also interested in lolita.
I'm sorry that this is so random and if there's been any other posts on this sort of thing! I really can't say I'm familiar with livejournal yet.
Is there a place in Tokyo that sells decent wigs?
I am unsure of Priscila's location, if they even have a physical store. I know Cyperous is in Osaka unfortunately, I believe.
Any good stores and how to get to them?
I'm not new to the fashion by any means, but, I've never gotten around to shopping on Fairy-Angel. Now that they have an international site, I think I might give it a go despite some of the reviews I've read of the site in the past. So, here's my real question...
I've registered on the new site and I spent about an hour searching memories and entries here and also for some hint on the Fairy-Angel site... How do I use those 500 points sitting in my account? Are they used for some sort of discount?
I'm hoping that one of you lolis can give me an answer, I've been so curious as to how they work!
I know many people have idols from the present time, such as musicians, designers, models, lj girls, etc. But how about those from long ago? Do you have any idols from the Rococo, Edwardian, or Victorian eras? Perhaps authors, or even their characters from their stories. Maybe some queens or princesses? Shakespeare? Anything! I adore Marie Antoinette and how her dresses were so colorful with beautiful prints and how she'd eat nothing but sweets and walk through the countryside, have tea with other royals and have/attend grand parties. How 'bout you? Edit: Just to have it make more sense, I don't look up to M.A as someone I would want to be, only her clothing and part of her lifestyle. ^^
Does anyone know if Metamorphose still has that PVC skirt? I'm curious to try and coordinate that to make Biker Loli.
If every lolita item were counted; every jsk, coat, skirt, accessory, shoe etc. What do you think the total price would be xD ?
To keep it mildly specific, lets say Angelic Pretty. Every piece manufactured at a total price. Don't count its present value at auction, think of its original sales price.
What do you think?
Millions of dollars maybe?
I've been wondering if there are any small aspiring lolita designers in Southern California, because I have also been thinking about organizing a small Lolita fashion show along with other lolitas. Maybe display some of their fashions, and dresses. If there are enough designers, than there is a possibility to make a small fashion show in Southern California, and invite as many lolitas as we can. Afterwards, than the designers can sell the gorgeous clothing that they made! Any ideas, or thoughts? No harsh criticism about the thought though. >.< I just remembered that the Pepsi or Coca Cola is donating money to small designers, and it would be perfect for the possibility of a fasion show
