As I got ready to get dressed this morning, I stood pondering over my closet. Having decided to wear lolita today but not which dress, I puzzled over my choices, finally deciding on an old favorite. As I pulled it out, it struck me that this dress; one I wear quite often; is very different from anything it sits alongside. In with a number of very sweet dresses, where even the dark colors come adorned with pink-tinted prints that could rot your teeth out, sits my lonely gothic JSK. All black with a silver print of candles and roses, its the farthest out of sweet I'd ever ventured. I wouldn't trade it for anything and wear it all the time, but today I'd probably never buy anything like it. It is the black sheep of my wardrobe, and I adore it.
So, egl, I ask you: What's the black sheep in your closet? Does a single AP print hold a place of pride among VM? Does a single bonnet sit next to rows of rose clips? Does an OP stand out against rows of skirts? Is there one blue cutsew in the closet of the girl who wears nothing but pink?
I don't use my waist ties, and I don't want to spring 50 bucks for a hair accessory to match my dress. Does anyone have experience or could link me to a post concerning making hair ties or head bows out of waist ties?
I've been in the market for a new petticoat, and I've heard great things about Malco Modes 582 in terms of its fluffiness and its versatility for A-line or cupcake shape. However, I'm always seeing them at around $50, a little out of my price range. Upon Googling around, I found about their children's petticoats, and the 1810 is described as the children's version of the 582. The L size is good for waists 23"-30" and is 19" long, plus it's cheaper, so it's a great fit for me. I'm concerned it's going to be less poofy though. Does anyone know how good it is?
I was wondering if anyone had a tutorial of how to use taobaospree?
I'm soo challenged with this ordering sheet!
If someone could help me that would be great!
I just purchased Jane Marple's Chandelier Print JSK on auctions, and I was wondering if anyone knows what it's made of? I'm vegan so I can't wear silk or wool, and I don't want to psych myself up too much if I'm just going to have to sell it when I get it. :(
Also, if anyone else knows the make-up of other JM winter JSKS or similar JSKs, that would be helpful.
I was wondering if, to make a quick buck, anyone had ever considered dressing up in OTT OTT OTT sweet/hime outfits and entertaining at little girl's parties?
You know, like take up a persona such as Princess Fluffbutt or what have you and paint faces or something?
I know some people might be against it because it may be seen as a costume, but it could also be an easy way to make money. I already entertain at little kid's functions around my neighborhood and paint faces, just never in lolita (I'm not much into sweet so I don't have the right clothes anyway).
What's your guys' opinions on this?
I was asking this question because I was curious. I've heard that some companies in Hong kong can get a hold of fabric that actually says "angelic pretty" on it and make replica items. Now I'm a bit worried, because I ordered a Fruits parlor dress from YJP that has an Angelic pretty tag, but no heart pin on it.
Could it be that I bought a fake?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Hey guys, I'd just like to let you all know that I'll be stepping down as a mod effective immediately since I've been in the process of leaving lolita in general - I still adore some of the clothes, but I don't have time to dedicate to the internet side of things anymore and am changing up my style for something a bit more grown-up :( I've been here for over four years, starting back when sweet lolita meant floral prints and rocking horse shoes instead of glittery pastels and tea parties, and have modded for the last couple of years off and on as my university schedule allowed. Honestly it's been lovely, and I'm sad to go as one of your mods, but it's time for me to move on to a new stage of my life. I'll miss you all! <3
Does anyone know where I can find Black Peace Now or Peace Now stock photos? I've tried Lolibrary and Hello Lace but BPN isn't listed. :( and is there a BPN community?
