I think I may have missed the boat.  So to speak.

I think I'm too old for Lolita. 

Some background:

I'm almost twenty four.  I have a three and a half year old daughter.  I got pregnant with her when I was nineteen... The years passed, I concentrated on being a mother, my sense of identity and fashion fell to the side.  I realize now that I still wear Hello Kitty t-shirts and knee high stripped socks (for example), same stuff I wore when I was nineteen, appropriate then but not now. 

I've found Lolita fashion now.  I adore it.  All I would need for a lolita wardrobe would be the petticoats and skirts. 


But I'm starting to think that I'm too old.  Maybe not too old in the sense of age.   But I'm 23 with a child.


I guess my question is...   Can someone who dresses in Lolita fashion be a mother?   I have it in my head for some reason that I have to dress and act my age now, cause I'm a mother. 


(and oh my I hope this post is alright for this community.)
