Freckles: Beauty of Blemish?

Hey everybody, I just wanted to know personal opinions on freckles in the lolita fashion.

As a natural redhead I have freckles (that've faded over time and through various concoctions to get rid of them), and I hear a lot of people say that they show youth.
But the same spots that seem to show "youth" are also seen as a blemish that comes with "age". Cause in my mind, sun spots and freckles go hand in hand.

Also, As Lolita is a fashion mimicking porcelain dolls in some ways (not all, obviously), but dolls didn't start having freckles until the 70's (just going by memory, not facts) do you think they go with the "doll" look or against it?

So I was just wondering.

♥ Do you have freckles?
♥ Do you cover yours up or accent them?
♥ Do you see them as youthful beauty or a blemish?
♥ What is your opinion on freckles in the Lolita fashion?
♥ Do you think Lolita is even a "doll"-mimicking fashion?
-> ♣ If not, what do you consider it?

Just FYI, I don't have anything against freckles, please don't take it that way! It was just a topic of conversation.
I've had to edit this to stress certain points.
There's way too many posts to the effect of "OMG, anybody who would say freckles is not lolita is sooo dumb." I never said anything was wrong with freckles, I was just making conversation.

Thank you, in advance!!
(I just thought of this as I put on my make-up and headed out the door, so I'll reply to comments later ^.^ )

Qutie land question

How long does it usually take your qutie land ordes to arrive? It's already been a month when they got my payment. I ordered 2 cutsews and a skirt. Yes, I know the estimate making time, used search and memories but I'm really starting to get impatient.
And if somebody has a review for wonder cookie replica skirt, please tell me!

Bodyline Review: Very positive

This is my first Review on EGL I ordered a pirate loli, or what I consider Pirate Loli that I posted pics of way back when. Sadly I'm still taking pictures of it and the site is down temporarily so I will post pics later and show you girls what I ordered. I got this dress during Mr. Yan's birthday sale and since the site was down the sale got extended.

I had no problems with communication their cart system and everything went really smooth. I used EMS, and ordered the dress tuesday and it arrived this morning. and once the ordering and everything had been taken care of I got the invoice right away from both Paypal and Bodyline, Bodyline of course thanking me for my purchase and saying that I would get the tracking number in two days. After two days I did receive it and missed checking the tracking one day and low and behold it was at my doorstep this morning my brother had to wake me to sign for it.

Bodyline Shipping , Confirmation problem HELP

Hello, this is my first time posting in egl ^^

I ordered from Bodyline a two piece on September 12. About after a day, I contacted Bodyline to ask if I could change my item's size.
About another day after , I got a message from Bodyline asking me my order time, and so I replied.
After four days ( being impatient as I am ) I contacted them again. I wrote that I h'avent gotten a reply in 4 days, and not even a confirmation e-mail.
24 hours later, I got the same reply from their last email which was:

May I have your orde time
Have a nice day
Thank you 

( btw, it is my first time ordering from Bodyline.I have not gotten a confirmation email and I recall I might have chosen DHL. )
Can someone please help me? Or am I just too paranoid?
