Hmm what don't i love about lolita? Well that's another post actually. But today is positive as these are things are i love in lolita!
I can't help but love the prints brands (and non brands like bodyline and anna house.) come up with. I have recently fallen in love with baby's print from 2008 THE WORLD'S MOST ADORABLE DOG AND THE WORLD'S MOST DELICIOUS FRAPPE PRINT OP. But more on that dress later. I love all the deer and candy, and dogs, and kittens, and teacups, and other great things. They're just too cute to ignore. Also flowers i'm a big fan of flowers on my dresses/skirts.
I just love the hairstyles people come up with. I'm not talking about wigs cause i don't really care about them. But just the styles that are made out of imagination. I love any hair that is teased out, curled, or dyed. (not a wig.) Or a combination of all of them or a few.
This is also a dislike beause it is quite impractical in the summer. But in the winter/fall/early spring it's awesome. I just love to dress up with socks, shoes, hair, petticoats, dress, make up. It makes me feel so pretty and princessy. I can't help but love all the work that goes into the outfits. Everythings just so perfect.
While i have met some pretty nasty people. Most of them are super sweet. I'm super happy to live in ct because the girls here are amazing. I could not ask for sweeter girls. As long as you know what you're asking and know it hasn't been asked before. The people on egl can be very helpful/nice.
I love all the details that go into a dress. The lace, the bows, the frills. All on one dress i don't care. I love it all.
I love the idea of having teaparties in a garden on a bright sunny day. (and also doing that.) Or playing croquet (which i would love to learn how to play.) on the lawn. Or just having a teaparty inside. I love cakes and cookies and cream puffs. Such adorable little things that i just adore.
While i know lolita has a lot of rules compared to other fashions. I still love how people can make it so creative even with those rules. I love all the coords and accessories and things people come up with. It just makes me so happy to such imagination.
It makes you stronger
Now i already had practice in ignoring stupid questions and stupid people, from wearing my goth clothes. But i do think that dressing up as a cupcake and then going outside takes a lot of confidence. (which i didn't really have before goth or lolita.)
Unless you live somewhere filled with tons of alternative people.(unlike me.) Then chances are you're pretty unique in your town. You don't see a lot of people walking around in baby in my town. (and by a lot i mean none. My town has known three types of people, the 'normal' type, the emo kids, and me.) I've always liked being the only one around with such a cute style.
Learning new things
I love how you can learn so many cool things from lolita. Like how to tie a bow, how to tell is lace is good. My sewing skills have improved a lot. I make accessories like mad now. I try out different hairstyles.
