I wore my first real Lolita outfit out and about not too long ago, but as I myself was expecting, I felt pretty self-conscious about it. (I did my best, however, in faking a confident exterior. xD)
Now I'm no stranger to out-there fashions, and I thought it was pretty funny how I could wear gawffy-gawf platform boots with numerous buckles, ripped up tights, way too much black makeup, etc. a few years ago and not feel self-conscious at all, and yet something so unoffensive as this could, and it got me thinking.
I was just wondering if anyone else not inexperienced in crazy outfits ever felt weird and uncomfortable in Lolita in the beginning, and specifically what kind of fashions they dabbled in.
I'm not asking for help or anything, just asking for stories. :B
