Lolita Meme!

I got really, really bored. Meme borrowed from Lolita in Secret, lovely meme, I must admit~


What colours can be found in your Lolita closet?
Offwhite, black, white, and a skirt that has beautiful faded orange and sepia tones. Essentially muted colours.
What is your favourite colour with Lolita?
I love all colours, it just takes the right person to pull them off. For myself? White. Hands down.

What is your least favourite colour in Lolita?
You're gonna hate me for this. I do not like pastel pink. Some people can pull it off, but it's just not for me.
Which uncommon colour do you want to try out?
I have an uncommon colour? Well, royal blue would be nice to contrast with all the pastels. Any jewel tone.

Are you more a Onepiece, Jumperskirt or a Skirt person?
Skirts, please. Especially because most OPs and JSKs don't fit my measurements. (Well, shirred ones likely do, but I abhor shirring.)
Which cut do you like the best?
Not sure about what specifically 'cut' means, but I like my dresses/blouses to either have a high neckline, a sweetheart neckline, or sometimes a squared neckline.
Print or no Print?
No. Print. I love my solid colours. (Now, I will make an exceptions for muted florals and other non-invasive prints.)
How does a dress/skirt have to look like that it will be a "must have" item for you?
For me? It has to be something I can either wear in day-to-day life, or as a special occasion outfit. It has to be durable enough to go through day-to-day life. Likewise, it has to be versitile. If I'm paying $30-$100 for a blouse or skirt, it had better go with many things.

What is your favourite style in Lolita?
Classical, there's no getting around that. I also like Aristocratic, and have been attempting Steampunk Lolita with no avail.
Which style do you wear regularly?
Which style you want to try out?
I would love to try out Country. Or Shiro. Well... more like a Gothic Shiro.
Which style you never want to try out/wear again?
OTT Sweet. I look awful in pastel. Sue me.

Brands yes or no and why?
Not really. For others who like them, wonderful. But I prefer to stick with Western "Brands" and independant seamstresses.
Which brand is your favourite?
If I could fit it, I would love anything by Innocent World, Mary Magdalene, or Victorian Maiden. Problem? They're all for tiny Japanese girls. I'm not seeing any way to fit my 39" bust into any of that.
Which is your least favourite brand?
Angelic Pretty, but we all saw that coming, right? Just... too much unicorn vomit, I'm sorry.
Ever had a good/bad experience with brand?
No experiences with brand to speak of, unfortunately.
Will this experience encourage/stop you from buying brand?
Doesn't apply, sorry love. ^^;

Did you ever got surprised by a piece of Lolita?
My first blouse, heck, I'm wearing it right now~ It goes with both my Lolita and non-Lolita things.

Did you ever got disappointed by a piece of Lolita?
Not yet, and here's hoping that I never do~
Things that you like about Lolita?The fact that the clothes tend to make me feel like a princess. Overrated, I'm sure, but it's how I feel. I feel like I want to be a better person each time I wear the frills to give a good name for everyone else, and to be as beautiful inside as the style makes me on the outside. In short, it makes me act like the lady I should be, so I love it.
Things that you dislike on Lolita?
The bitchiness of the community, and how restrictive the style can be. You get down to a whole ton of nitty-gritty details that either make or break a Lolita. "Oh! Lace parasols are so not Rori." "You can't wear that! It's not Lolita!" I could understand things like neon orange Crocs or something, but what's wrong with my white lace parasol? As long as it looks nice and fits the asthetic, isn't that the point?

Do you have a Lolita fashion idol, if 'yes' who is it?
I wish I did. Maybe I need to find myself an idol?

Does Lolita affect your every day life?
You had better bet it does! I'm not saying I'm one of those people who sips tea every morning and thinks she's a princess, but I do try to incorperate a bit of Loliness into day-to-day life. There's no point to just wearing the frills if you're not affected by them.

Do you buy Lolita related things, like cute looking furniture?
I don't know about cute furniture, but once I get my own place, I'm definetely decking it out like a Victorian parlour.

Do you read/buy the Gothic Lolita Bible?
If I could get ahold of an issue, I'd read it.

How to you describe your fashion style to others that don´t know about Lolita?
"Alright, you know those lovely porcelain dolls? Sort of like that."
"Think that dress that Alice wears, that's the silouette."
"I'm supposed to look like a refined young lady from the Victorian era."

Is there something you want to say to your fellow Lolitas?
Don't worry, be happy! No, really. We could all use a little bit of lightening up, and a few of us (including/especially me) need to get that stick out of our arse. We all have the potential to get along. We really do.
