Casual vs. formal

How many of you wear occasion-specific lolita? This may be a wrong impression, but I feel like a lot of people wear full-on formal lolita as everyday wear. Where do you draw the line? I know there's some stuff that's OBVIOUSLY formal and could never be "ambiguously formal/informal" (lol), but there is also some stuff that I see people wear out in picture posts for completely casual things, but they look too formal for the occasion (maybe it's just my taste). I dunno, I don't see people walking around in "normal" fancy dresses to go to... say, the mall... so is it something specific to underground fashion that people "overdress" like that? And I don't mean for the word to sound negative. As far as the degrees of formality in lolita fashion, do you equate your clothing with the degrees of formality in mainstream fashion? Or do you just wear whatever because you feel like dressing up? I hope that's not too confusing, it's just that I don't see this "overdressing" (sounds negative, don't mean it to be) in other fashions... but correct me if I'm wrong.

edit: Do you have pictures of what you wear for casual events? I know that everyone defines "casual" differently, and that's the point I'm trying to make. XD
