Lolita blogs, vlogs, and articles

There are many sources to satisfy your hunger for Lolita. I have added on post listing sites and databases to help you understand the basic rules of Lolita.

But perhaps you would like to know more but form an actual Lolita, herself.

Well, of course you have me, but please don't believe I know everything there is to know about Lolita, go out there and get other perspectives. I know I do.

So here's a list of some blogs I follow:

Lolita Charm and The Charm Channel : A blog and vlog by the lovely Victoria Suzanne. She features articles that inspire thought, helps out the fashion conscious and teach us to make our own Lolita items.

The Princess Portal and The Lost Princess : Princess Skye's old and new blogs. The Princess Portal older entries (Which I believe are still available) Have many tips on being a lifestyle Lolita. And her new blog The Lost Princess though not Lolita centered can still give us many ideas that we could modify to fit our needs.

Miss Lumpy : By the darling Miss Lumpy, gives us a new perspective on being Lolita and molding it to fit our lives.

One Thousand Frills : By the charming Cassandra or sweetly nicknamed Cassu, offers us advice on all styles of lolita, necessities before a meet up and other helpful and sometimes overlooked details.

My Sweet Blog (Princessly Living)
: a blog I recently was introduced to by a fine member of the EGL Livejournal Community member. I find a lot of inspiration from this witty writer

I will be adding more sources once I've found them, keep a look out for your won as well.

So you know the what, why and where of Lolita fashion. Surfing through brand sites you find yourself looking through the prices and wondering how anyone can offer to be a Lolita.
No worries... most sell their souls-kidding though I have to admit some Lolitas seemed to be the reapers of the souls by the way the act. Yikes!

But back to the main topic: Lolita on a Budget!

How can achieve the dream wardrobe with a whole army of financial set backs?

In today's economy I am still surprised to see some of our favorite Lolita brands still open for business. Yay, for them!

But I am barely staying a float.

So what is a potentially great Lolita to do? I won't have the heart to spend 200+ plus on any garment when that money can go to more important things but I don't want to give up my frills and lace.

EGL Community Sales, Ebay, Closet , Bodyline, etc. to the rescue. Not all Lolis have the loot to fling at APs new marvelous prints. And sometimes to afford a new dress Lolis resort to putying their older garments on sale. You can find great deals on "vintage" prints and designs by going to your follow Lolis.

When buying make sure to have a good idea of what you already have and look for items that you can mix in with what you own, so that you can get more bang for your buck.

If your building up your wardrobe buy pieces in solid colors that can mix well with adorable prints.

Seamstresses and Homemade: Is another way to get your dream wardrobe, with the added benefit of getting a quality garment fit specially for you. This is also a great choice for Lolitas that don't fit in to brands limited sizing. Ay how I wish MM would produce bigger sizes.

Remember to buy quality materials, read the Lolita Handbook for tips on proper fabric, lace and everything you'll need.

I shall be adding tutorials later on so be on the look for those.

This blog is dedicated to Lolita fashion, for the simple reason that I love it and found myself wishing there was more about it in the western world. So I thought to myself why not be one to put it out there and thus was birthed my idea child Lolita Poupée.

My intention is to fill this blog with entries pertaining to Lolita fashion whether it be tutorials, articles, site links, reviews, tips and tricks, or everything that could be helpful to a beginner or maybe a vet to Lolita fashion.


Lolita is a Japanese street fashion that takes from past eras primarily the Rococo and Victorian.
There is much argument about when it came about, some would claim that it was birthed in the late 1980s following the raise of Visual Kei groups, yet others would say it began in the mid 1990s in the mind of fore-parent Mana. But as of today it has jumped the pond and become an international favorite for those would love Japanese fashion of course.

The name of this fashion, Lolita, is sure to draw out tainted thoughts from most westerns (thank you Vladmir Nabokov). Lolita fashion has nothing to do with nymphettes and sexual references, and more to do with feeling beautiful and having fun.

Within Lolita fashion there are many sub-styles ranging from the sweet loli with pastels and cute prints to the dark elegantly clad gothic loli and everything in between.

Though many follow this fashion simply for the love of the clothes, there are others who take it on as a lifestyle, filling there lives with beauty and "feminine" activities like embroidery, baking, etc.
