i'm a vintage dress addict who used to dabble in the lolita thing (and i still do, but being much taller and bustier than i used to be has limited my ability to pull off a lot of things.) lately, i've noticed a lot of striking similarities between lolita fashion and 1950's square dance dresses- gingham, ruffles, dainty little bows, petticoats, very full/short circle skirts etc.

have any of you ever worn vintage items like these in a lolita context? i have this fabulous brown/cream ruffly gingham vintage dress that i'm contemplating wearing to a "goth" tea party, and i'm going back and forth on whether or not it would work.

p.s. i'm new here. hello!

EDIT: pictures of the dress under cut- i appologize for the terrible quality. i don't have a real camera, so i usually just get friends to take pictures of me when they have the time.

the skirt might look much better with a petticoat, but i am dubious about the sleeves. it was the neckline and trim that made me think it might work.
