30 Day lolita challenge - Day 3

Day 3 – 10 things you hate in lolita.

1) Too much print love! I like looking at pics, I guess, but I miss earlier pieces, when you barely saw prints the likes of AP's or Baby's.

2) Duhhhhrama. Srsly, so dumb. It's like high school all over again, lol

3) Way too sweet OTT prints, with like little animals and things like that that look like 80s Hallmark cards for little girls. LOL, I hope that's clear ^^;;

4) How expensive it is ^^;; It's reaaally hard to move around within a budget, specially cos you fall in love with it and can't stop...

5) On that same vein, I guess I hate that once you start, you tend to feel 'obligated' to be "as loli as you can" like, all the time. I even tried to be the 24/7 loli, with even some lifestyle practices, but really, it's silly to feel so restricted. Do the stuff cos you wanna do them, not cos you feel yoyu need to live to some sort of role. Sometimes I do like to go out in a skimpier outfit or nice casual clothes...

6) And more on that same venue, I hate the phrase "leaving lolita". It's not a sacred sisterhood, it's a fashion. If you wanna wear it once in 5 years cos you felt like it, do it.

7) ...but I gues i'm a hypocrite, cos I hate when girls say they can't do something in lolita, like going to a bar, for instance. Sure, I tend to dress differently when I go to my friend's bar, but I also love going there in lolita. It has a funny effect on people XD

8) How much value is put on owning a lot of brand. That just means you have more money and can spend it, that's it. I value taste a lot more.

9) I hate blouses with skirts. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love them on every other lolita, but I hate them on me, they just don't work on my lumpy, wonky body.

10) I guess I don't hate newbies, but I get annoyed when someone starts making assumptions without proper reasearch. I spent two years researching the style before I started wearing it and though I have evolved from the time I first wore it, I started pretty decent and knowledgeable because of those years spent online and talking to lolita friends :)

Ive never been lolita, but this can be said about most of the so-called Japanese fashions. its so difficult. everything else was so easy for me,PUNK especially, even grunge, but lolita sounds like you have to be some special daughter of a rich guy to get it

Well, basically, yeah, you have to have tons of money to be all-brand, like the ones you see online.
But since I live in a poorer country, thankfully our comm has learnt to do the look without spending thousands. It's still expensive on our measly incomes, though, haha XD
