Jane Marple Online Shop

Some of the most exciting fashion related news I have gotten in ages: Jane Marple has opened an Online Shop today!! Now you can see clear stock photos of their items and no longer have to go off of the tiny preview pictures and have a shopping service go to the store for you!

Question about BTSSB

As I'm window shopping, some of the items have this label next to them that says "通販在庫なし". This roughly means its not in stock at stores, but this means I could sill order online right? It doesn't affect online ordering?

Style or Styles?

I tried to find something like this., If this has been asked before feel free to delete. Oh, and sorry if I look like a huge noob ;_; ^___^

So, as some people may know, or could have guessed, I am extremely new to lolita. So far, I have like, 2 JSKs, a blouse and a petticoat (which I'm soon to be modifying to make poofier ^^). However, the pieces I have now could probably be called more 'Classic'. That's fine,  like it, but I really love Sweet lolita, and Gothic lolita interests me too.

My question is, do you keep to one style which you change slightly, e.g. mostly sweet but add classic hints, or mostly Gothic but add punk or sailor hints. OR, do you, or do you feel it okay, to wear OTT sweet one day, then something like ero or gothic the next?


Hello! My name is Darina, I am from Russia!
I want to get acquainted with Lolita from France. I arrived in the summer in Paris for a couple of days. I wish that somebody helped to find the lolita stores) and made ​​the company ^ _ ^

Lifestyle Lolita

 I've heard of lifestyle lolita's. Wait, let me start at the beginning.

When I was little anything old-fashioned fascinated me. I wished, still do a lot of times, that I could live in those elegant times. Now that I have become a lolita I want to live the "lolita lifestyle". I'm not trying to change who I am, the opposite actually. I want to finally show everyone what I've always wanted to show. So, any tips?

(no subject)

I have a question: Do Japanese people approve of us wearing "their" fashion?

I'm not saying we NEED they're approval, I was just wondering because recently I've been getting Facebook attacks from people who are- or at least are claiming to be- Japanese and saying I'm a horrible Lolita for not being Japanese. I had to change a lot of security features and block at least a dozen people and the thing is, I don't even know how this started.

I just want to know if this is a general consensus or just small group of pissed off, racist Japanese people -_-

One day, one dress, two outfits, two secret gardens

My friend Aristosa was visiting me last week here in Hämeenlinna. The weather was amazing and one of our loli friends had a Birthday few days back so it was perfect excuse for a lolita picnic. The birthday girl wished we would go to a national park Aulanko where is a beautiful "castle ruins" It's actually a replica of mid europian castles but it's made over 100 years a go.When we arrived home after the picnic we still felt like taking more photos, so we changed our outfits and went to Hämeenlinna city garden. The place felt magical at the afternoon light, we hope you enjoy these photos as much we enjoyed our loli-day! <3

US Tabao shipping question

Hey there all you smart tabao shoppers! Im another helpless and annoying newbie and i was wondering how much shipping to the USA costs on average when you use Tabao Now. I know it depends on the weight of your item etc. but the website says that it starts at 144 for less than 0.5 kg, is it really $144? Thank you for helping me and if you can spare any other tips for me i would be so grateful!

quick question (AP SC special set)

I just had a quick question.

how much did the dark blue Sugary Carnival special set originally sell for?

I was looking on Yahoo!Japan auctions at Sugary carnival stuff and someone is trying to sell the set for 70,000 yen .
woah. that is a LOT. I know it was hard to get....but really...that much?

so how much did it go for originally? I can't remember...and my google-fu is failing me.
