January 2

January is almost upon us and that means 2012 is on its way as well.
Here are some tips to start out the new year!

January is Book Month which makes this a great month to curl up with a great book especially during a rain or snow storm. Miss Lumpy has great picks for what should be on a Lolita bookshelf. I will be also posting some of my favorites later on this month.

This month is also Thank You Month, which a fitting since last month Decembers there was gift giving frenzy, how about sending out hand written thank you cards to all the people that made a difference in your life in 2011. Hello Kitty has cute stationary, but any stationary store will have a wonderful section that is worthy of thanksgiving.

The beginning of the year is traditionally a time to bid farewell to old habits and renew ourselves through resolutions we make and hope to keep during the next year. A great way to make sure to keep a resolution is having a support group and as Lolis we have a support ready among our local Lolita community. So why not set up a New Years Resolution meet up. It is the perfect way to greet everyone and even come up with group resolutions: meeting up more, hosting more craft meets, swap meets, tea parties, etc.

January is also host to Chinese Lunar New Year, which falls on the 23. This incoming year is the year Dragon and in celebration why not have a group meet at a local Chinese New Year celebration, most major cities with Chinese communities have a grand celebration.
Or why not create your own party, any excuse to get the party started no?

Finally I want to wish you all a great New Year, and a fun New Years Eve. May 2012 be the best year of our lives and that every following year only get better. Love and Light.

December Style Tips

My how the time flies by it already December and 2012 is around the corner.

So here are my tips to make your December count.

Gingerbread houses, gingerbread men all just remind me of the holiday season and seam to fit perfectly with Lolita. There are so many tutorials out there for making actual gingerbread house to polymer clay ones. Here are a gingerbread house and a gingerbread man tutorials for making one of your own to wear during the holidays.

Ice skating is a fun activity for the winter season, some cities have indoor skating rinks, and some even set up outdoor ones for the season. It might be a great tradition to start with your fellow Lolitas.

This season is fun of fun decor and Christmas trees are the center of all celebrations. How about with salt dough ornaments. Here's a tutorial and some awesome salt dough ornaments to get inspiration.

Tis the season for gift giving, and as Lolita we need to make sure our gifts are wrapped with as much love and care as we dress ourselves, here are some beautiful gift wrapping ideas that might dazzle more than the present within.

And since we are on the subject of gifts why not hold a white elephant tea party, where you will exchange gifts with your local Lolitas. It is a great way to get together and show appreciation for the community and friendship.

November Projects

Falls is official underway in most of the northern hemisphere and this means many beautifully colored leaves, Last month I suggested a headdress out of these lovely leaves, this month I have fallen head over heels for this project: Autumn Leaf Roses

Apples are in season, and one of my favorite treats is apple pie, how about trying a new spin with this cute and delicious recipe: Apple Pie

Taking inspiration from the lovely Victoria Suzanne of Parfait Doll, I had tons of fun creating my header and many coordinates on polyvore, a great activity for lonely rainy days. You can follow my coordinate to : LINK!

As the season get colder we see a trend for luxurious accessories like fur. Many are not so happy with wearing actual fur but faux fur is the guilt free way to getting the look without harming furry cuties. Here's a great tutorial to try out.
Also beware shops are selling you real fur saying its faux fur: Video so make sure its faux make it yourself.

Its a little late this month cause school projects are taking so much of my time. Hope you find these fun and have a great month.

CNN article on Lolita

I've read through the article and it fairly decent. it tries to explain what the fashion is, it does make reference to Nabokov's Lolita but unless all lolitas gather and agree to change the name of the fashion (and I doubt that will permanently sever the link), there will always be reference to the book and it oversexualize character. My favorite quote from this article has to be:

"Some fans of the fashion believe that it is a direct commentary on the oversexualization of the female image, and by taking it in a new direction, lolitas challenge the image of what women are supposed to look like. Some believe it makes them less approachable, creating a wall of safety between themselves and men who might otherwise approach them. Some enjoy the idea of looking doll-like and simply enjoy the fashion for what it is, and like wearing it out in public gatherings."
Lolitas fashion finds a niche in the U.S.
I believe it does a great job describing why women choose to wear this fashion. The only thing I found missing was that the fashion has a bigger age range than the one they seem to imply. You should read the article and maybe comment if you prefer ( going back and reading through some of the comments they get nasty so beware ther eis so much ignorance in some of the comments its not worth it)

Welcome to October monthly tips:

Pumpkin patches are a great meet up location for this month, so gather a few of your fellow Lolis and head over to you local patch. Once you're all gathered exceptional pumpkins having a craving party. There are many tutorials for cute, ghoulish and elegant Jack-0-lanterns online.
Here's a gallery of some awesome Jack-o-lanterns link!

Continuing on the meet up themes. How about gathering on Halloween for a theme party? A Macabre Alice and Wonderland party, assign everyone a character from Alice in Wonderland and have them give it a spooky spin.

Yummy! Pumpkin spice, pumpkin/apple pies, and candied apple are delicious treats that make an appearance this month as these fruits all come into season. Try your hand at some baking and candying on the 21st, Apple Day.

Incorporate Loli into your costume. Of course Lolita alone isn't a costume but dressing up as Alice or a Marionette. There's a host of ideas to add some loli to your Halloween costume. Victoria Suzanne , the amazing blogger of Parfait Doll has made two list of ideas list 1 and list 2 .

I'll be adding more Halloween ideas later in the month so watch out for those articles.

School Uniforms

Beginning the new school year is literally a day away for some and just around the corner for others, and among the many new items you're shopping for will a new wardrobe. For some this new wardrobe comes with many specific guidelines. Uniforms are meant to help student avoid distractions, but they are very stifling to self-expression. So what is a loli to do when faced with school uniforms? Loli-fy it!

I must begin with the first rule of loli-fying your uniform: Check Your School's Dress Code!
Some schools have a more relax dress code and that gives you ample opportunity to move around within the rules; while other schools have a very strict dress code and will be limited with what you can do.

Once you've reviewed you school's dress code and have an idea of your wiggle room, proceed.

Choose a skirt, even without a petticoat a skirt is more loli than a pair of pants (unless you're going for kodona)

Peter pan style collars are definitely an option, maybe you can look of something with pin-tucks and ruffles (if its allowed of course), this one from lands end is excellent for our purposes. Good news some lolita blouses can work with uniforms (again check your school's dress code before proceeding). Cutsew are also a great alternative, this version with Peter pan collar some even have a cute ruffle. Now isn't that Loli.

Sweaters and Coats:
Some schools are strict when it comes to outerwear, others are more relaxed, letting you wear any style. You might be able to sneak a brand sweater or coat (though I would be careful since sweaters and coats do have a tendency of disappearing or being forgotten). If your school only allows certain styles, then find one that is an accordance with the rules and still has a loli-able aspect.

When choosing shoes go for flats in mary-janes, ballet, or t-straps styles. Most school dress codes will allow flats over heels, still don't be tempted to take your Tea Party Shoes; they might not comply with the unstated rules... check with your school authorities beforehand.

Socks and stockings:
Another essential in the Lolita coordinate. Again resist temptation don't wear your Baby or AP brand socks. Opt for simple no frills solid white, black, grey, or brown knee socks or tights and match them to the color of your uniform.

We lolis love accessories, they make the outfit. For school though be as understated as possible. No head eating hair bows, or Decora methods of accessorizing. Your teacher might take anything too distracting from you and sometimes you won't ever get them back. Instead wear a simple Matilda-esque ribbon in your hair or a small bow diadem, choose just one ring, bracelet, brooch, etc that will show your personality but won't risk you getting in trouble.

Writing materials and Backpack:
Your most important school accessories. If your school's dress code doesn't give you any wiggle room then exploit the opportunities you do have. Your writing materials(pencils, notebook, bookcovers;)and your backpack (or purse, or messenger bag) are a great opportunity to express your taste and styles. Look for stationary, notebooks, backpacks, pencils, pens, etc that are loli-esque.

Classic inspired:

Sweet inspired:

Gothic inspired:

Most importantly please follow your school's dress code and rules. I know it can be tempting to take it OTT at school, but it isn't worth the risk of being reprimanded or having your items taken away. At some school breaking the dress code can have you wearing a large pink or neon orange t-shirt for the rest of the school day so know your school's rules before you decide to experiment.

Back to School

The end of carefree summer days is drawing near soon many of us will be returning to homework and test. Yes, pretty soon the fall semester will start and we have to begin buying supplies and yes new fall clothes.

So what should a loli wear for school????

Going to school in lolita, is a little difficult since the main focus of school is learning (though some of your classmates are otherwise entertained), but that doesn't mean you should have to swear off wearing lolita at school. With a few simple guide lines you should be ready to start the new school year.




Try to minimize the distraction:
*School is for learning and loli can be very distracting, so try to use solids or simple prints like polka dots, stripes, plaids. Milky Planet or Bold florals can be a bit to much for school.
* The accessories are just as important as the dress, but for school less is more. Big head eating bows aren't only be distracting, it can also be a visional obstacle to anyone sitting behind you.

Be comfortable:
*Wearing Loli to school means sacrificing pouf. Remember school desk aren't accommodating to big pouf, so consider using a one less petticoat or a slightly deflated one.
* I recommend using very comfortable shoes, walking from class to class or home is much easier when you have comfy shoes. Flats are comfy and might comply better with school dress codes that disallow heels or open toe shoes.

Be safe:
*Remember to always check your school's dress code before going in any fashion, just to avoid having to put on a huge pink shirt over your coord or worst be sent home to change.
* Though most of my coordinates have brand items, I would recommend using less expensive options for school. You never know what stains or tears can occur so you'll feel less of a hit to the wallet if it isn't a brand dress or dream dress.
* Wearing loli to school can be a little daunting confidence wise. Shelby Cloud one of my favorite Lolitas has some wonderful video talking about the topic. Link!

Have fun! Loli is one of the things that brings you pleasure with a few adjustments loli in school can be an option.

** I will be writing something about loli and school uniforms, keep an eye out!

Lolita VS Mori Girl

Ever dreamed of living in a quaint little cottage in the woods, well then perhaps you'll fall head over heels for the next Lolita hybrid: Mori Lolita.

Mori girl is an aesthetic that has charmed its way into the hearts of many since it first step out onto the fashion scene. Like Lolita fashion, Mori girl originated in Japan and draws from other fashions like natural kei.

"Mori" in Mori girl means forest in Japanese, and Mori girl seek to resemble a forest dwelling girl, or a forest fairy. The Mori girl aesthetic is attributed to Choco from the Mixi community (an online Japanese community similar to facebook), who became inspired after a friend commented that she looked like a forest girl.

What is Mori girl?
Ever imagined what Gretel, Heidi, and Little Red Ridding Hood would wear?
Well Mori girl fashion comes closest to what would be.
Innocence and quirkiness are essentially what a Mori girl wants to emulate. Muted tones, natural fibers, antique items and second hand pieces are all part of the Mori girl aesthetic. This style is very free form with guidelines not strick "must follow" rules.

Mori Lolita?

Now with the looseness of Mori girl and the sometimes rigid rules of Lolita, it is a little difficult to see how these could mesh well, but I believe that those that have found a fondness for Mori Lolita, have to find balance. There's a lot of give and take.

The sub-style best suited to adapt for Mori Lolita would have to be classic Lolita, though sweet Classic especially Classic Sweet Lolita would work well too. Classic and Mori girl share many motifs such as muted tones, floral prints, antique pieces and historical flair.

How to get the look?

Color is key: pastels are welcomed but mostly in a washed out tones; earthy browns like chestnut and chocolate are perfect; creams, off whites and white are also great colors for the Mori girl palette.

Prints: florals, forest theme, fairy tale characters, can all tie into Mori Lolita.

Accessories: think maybe one or two statement pieces of jewelry. Perhaps a simple cancan hat or flower pin for the hair. Remember simplicity is what keeps this aesthetic clean and whimiscal.

Knits and Crochet: shawls, cardigans, sweaters; knitted items all seem to scream forest dweller and should definitely be a part of a Mori Lolita's wardrobe.

Here's a couple of links

Lolita VS Steampunk

Here is the first installment of Lolita vs Other Fashions. Lets begin!

This time around I want to focus on Steampunk Lolita, but let's begin with a quick overview. 

What is Steampunk any hoo?
Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fiction, alternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, art, etc. This technology may include such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne or real technologies like the computer but developed earlier in an alternate history. 
From Wikipedia

Let's have some fun:

Needs some guidelines? Check here: A sense of structure

Steampunk Lolita, wtf?

Many will argue til they are blue in the face that Steampunk-Lolita is not a substyle of Lolita, some will hear nothing less than that is is a valid substyle. Why is it so controversial a style? Well, it boils down to the question: "Is Steampunk cosplay?"

Lolita and cosplay are at odds. Most Lolitas do not want to be associated with cosplay in anyway, and rightfully so. Lolita isn't a costume, it is a fashion ( of course we needn't even mention the reasons here). No with all the technology that is invented for Steampunk outfits anything from jewellery to "hand guns," the cosplay line gets very blurry at best and non existant at worst. This doesn't mean that you have to swear off the Steampunk aesthetic in your Loli. If you have just been shot like Momoko in Kamikaze Girls by this hybrid, resist the urge to just throw a pair of googles on with your favorite Lolita garments. This hybrid will probably not mesh to well with OTT Sweet styles of clothing or gothic. The best would have to be classic especially if it is heavily influenced by the Victorian Era Rococo please.

In Her Shoes: Flats

I cannot tell a lie. I do not like Lolita shoes (well most). I haven't liked them since I first came to know of the fashion, and though some styles (the famous Tea Party shoe and the original Vivienne Westwood ballerina rocking horse shoes) have grown on me. Most styles still boggle me.
I often find that most Lolita brand shoes are to bulky, to rough looking, the complete polar opposite of the frilly, airy delicate and graceful garments. I've heard that the bulky footwear is meant to stabilize the fashion, to act as a solid base. Honestly I think that's a load of manure and the combination makes for an odd couple.

So what are some alternatives? Let's travel into the land of mainstream fashion particularly.

The Ballet Flat
How much graceful can you get, inspired by the ballet slipper.

Or it's sisters
The Mary Jane Flat

The T-strap flat

Calling to All Sailor Lolita

Spring has brought a renewed interest of Sailor Lolita to brand fashion, both Meta and AP will release sailor themed items that are too cute to pass up.

I have to say that Meta's Sailor Pinafore Dress with Collar is my favorite. I love the vintage feel, it reminds me a little of Baby's Cherry Ribbon OP, which is one of my dream dresses. My favorite line? Well the jury is still out but I will day that I do love AP's mini cancan hat. Meta's line is all clean lines and can be seen on both sweet and classic lolita (changing accessories and hairstyle). AP's is definitely a sweet lolis interpretation of sailor especially with the pastels colorways. Which is your favorite?

Lolita vs Other Fashions: Introduction

I love Lolita fashion, it is easy to tell. I dress up. I gush at new prints and releases. I dream of Lolita. I stalk blogs and site dedicated to Lolita. I write a blog dedicated to Lolita fashion. I love Lolita fashion, I do, I do, I do.

Now don't get the wrong idea, this isn't one of those post about how Lolita Fashion is superior to other fashions, or how much I hate [insert fashion] because it clearly taking Lolita fashion in the wrong direction. No, this article isn't about that at all. Indeed it is quite the opposite.

I am sure that since Lolita fashion first occurred as an epiphany there has been a desire to stretch it in many directions. To combine it and mod it to suit all taste. There are some that would get red faced arguing that Lolita wasn't intended to be that way but for those that believe that, there are many others that are just itching to explore the boundaries of what Lolita fashion can be.

This is an intro to some of the more controversial lolita hybrids. A series titled Lolita vs Other Fashions.

The next number posts will try to detail these new emerging fashions, I hope you enjoy them. I invite you to comment on any Lolita hybrid you want to see. Of course please give me your opinion of the subject of these lolita hybrids.

Many thanks and much love to you.

Sailor, Pirate Lolita

The next set of Lolita sub-styles are the center of many debates of whether they count as an actual sub-style ( ie sweet, classic, or gothic) or if they are cosplay.

I like to begin with a definition of cosplay or costume play:

A type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Characters are often [2] drawn from popular fiction in Japan, but recent trends have included American cartoons and Sci-Fi as well as other pop-culture. Favorite sources include manga, anime,tokusatsu, comic books, graphic novels, video games, hentai and fantasy movies. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa.

Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centered around role play. A broader use of the term cosplay applies it to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.

From Wikipedia

I like this definition, it is very in-depth. Of course it can be taken to mean that Pirate and Sailor are or are not cosplay. Ultimately it is in the eye of the beholder. For our purpose we will describe these styles as a sub-style of Lolita.

Sailor Lolita:

Sailor Lolita was more popular a few years back and like other sub-styles has fallen out of favor. Of course the name clearly implies what it is, it is lolita infused with the sailor theme.

Popular motifs are anchors, nautical strips, sailor collars and ties, cute sailor style hats. The usual colors are white and navy, white and black, or white and pink but red, white and blue combo can definitely work to achieve this look.

Since this sub-style isn't as popular there aren't many brands that release sailor style lolita. If you are interested in wearing this style be open to searching through off-brand sites like Bodyline and Fanplusfriend, or being vigilant for any brand releases.

Pirate Lolita

Pirate Lolita is rarely seen but it hasn't truly gone by the wayside. Baby's Alice and the Pirates is a brand that caters to this particular style.

Within Pirate Lolita there are sub-styles too.

These separations have much to do with color, and motifs used. Sweet pirate lolita uses pinks and pastels, while gothic might use darker colors like black and purple , etc. Classic would probably dive into browns, maroons.

All use the same motifs with slight modification:
Skulls and cross bones, treasure chest, jewels, pearls, swords, cannons, eye patches, buckles

The use of tricorn hats, big lapels, buckle shoes and boots is prevalent.

Again Baby's Alice and the Pirates is a great place to begin your pirate lolita wardrobe but other brands, off brand and non japanese brands do occasionally release pirate theme items.

So keep an eye out if this is your flavor of Loli.

Wa and Qi Lolita

Among the hardest of the substyles to coordinate Wa and Qi Lolita tiers between what is considered lolita and what is cosplay. The seasoned coordinator might have an easier time establishing these styles into a truly Lolita outfit and not have it be knocked down as cosplay or worse and ita outfit.

I personally like Wa and Qi, dreaming of coordinated that still have yet to manifest.

The element of Japanese or Chinese traditional fashions are mixture with the lolita silhouette.

For Wa Lolita it is common to see yukata or kimono, obis, getta. Kanzashi and other traditional hair adornments are also worn. Meta also makes a kimono fabric jsk which are perfect for the beginner experimenting with Wa Loli.

In Qi Lolita it is usual to see a quipao usually modified to allow the cupcake skirt quintessential to Lolita underneath. Traditional Chinese hair adornments are also used to replace alice bows or the rectangular headdress.

Examples of a well done Wa and Qi lolita coordinate can be found here:

Brands that cater to Wa or Qi Lolita:

Unfortunately Wa and Qi are not as commomn as before and searching in the major lolita brands will be a challenge, but if you look outside to the off brand arena you can find some elegant items.

Another note:

Since Wa and Qi Lolita are a mixture of culture and Lolita fashion I would also like to share with you:
Han lolita a style that mixes Korean traditional Hanbok with Lolita, some examples:
Wryd Loli a style once coordinated by a member of the Livejournal Community, EGL, it s just lovely and fits with the articles theme.
If you want more info on Wa and Qi here are some links that may help:

Shiro and Kuro Lolitas

Shiro Lolita and Kuro Lolita were also among the main substyles a few years back and have seemed to go by the wayside as of late, but with the resurgence of old school Lolita, these are two substyles worth mentioning. So what are Shiro and Kuro lolitas exactly? Lets begin in with Shiro-loli, while following all the basic guides of Lolita she prefers to dress in head to toe white, like her the Kuro Lolita prefers to stick to one color black.

Brands that cater to the Shiro and Kuro Lolis:

Items for the Shiro and Kuro substyle can be found in all Lolita brands all the rules of the basic Lolita silhouette apply with the added rule of using a one color color scheme.
