Cultural lolitas?

This is just a simple ramble that I literally JUST thought about. :b If this needs to be cut, I'll gladly do it.

Okay, so... It's 5:00 AM, and I'm making pasta while going through EGL [...what, can I not take my laptop in the kitchen?] when it hit me; How come you always put France with lolita? I mean, from what I can remember... even BEFORE the BtSSB store opened in Paris, people always kinda put them together. I just kinda got a mental image of an Italian lolita [and forgive me if I'm wrong, I'm not Italian myself as far as I know and I've never been to Italy XD] sitting on the deck of some fancy-schamncy restaurant, while perhaps...eating...pasta XD I think of gorgeous hime hair [as the new image on the website shows :D] and a simple dress with a sweetheart neckline, perhaps that one MM classic dress that everyone knows and loves... and not chunky cute lolita shoes, but perhaps a more refined heel that's still sweet enough to match her outfit. And some reaaaal cute sheer hose, like [FORGIVE ME EGL, FOR I HAVE SINNED] http://www.fashioninjapan.com/Free_Tour_New/0705/shibu-03.jpg !! <3
...You get what I'm sayin', right?

Does anyone else have any ideas for stuff like this? I remember Carnet-blahblahblah [the mod we all know and love, and I suck at LJ skills so forgive me XD] did all the "unique lolita" things, such as glasses, dark skin, tats, etc... but has anyone ever ventured for a cultural lolita other than wa-loli and the very VERY understated qi-loli? I'd love to see results.

Comments and ideas are highly encouraged, as... well, I'm really curious. >:3
