30 Day Lolita Challenge Day Three!

Hey, guys~ Picking up again with day 3!

★ Day 3 - 10 things you hate in lolita. ★

There's not a lot I hate about lolita, so I wonder if I can even fill this up x~x.

☆ One ~ The inaccessibility. It's a lot easier to get that it was way back when, and many would say it's totally accessible now, but you and I both know that you can't stroll downtown and pick up a perfect lolita piece from a mall xD. It's still pretty underground, and while that has it's own appeal, It would be great if it were easier to get.

☆ Two ~ The prices. There are reasons lolita is priced the way it is, but even the cheap stuff runs you more than something similar would ;A; (polka dot summer dress, maybe $35, lolita polkadot JSK from bodyline $60 ;^;). The prices aren't going to change anytime soon, though, and I can't say I would want lolita to suddenly become cheaper. It would be a bit suspicious LOL.

☆ Three ~ The layers! I'm all for layering, I actually love to layer. I also would rather be warm than cold, but when it's 100 degrees out, who wants to wear OTK cotton socks, bloomers, a petti, a cami, a blouse, and a JSK? ;A;? No one! Even when it's not super hot out, all the layers can become uncomfortable x~x

☆ Four ~ How fake it can get. I'm not saying I'll never buy a wig or anything like that, and it really does help pull together that "doll" look to have circle lenses, fake nails, and wigs on all the time, but I dunno. I just don't like it that much for me xD. I guess I would personally rather wear my real hair & nails.

☆ Five ~ No petticoat ;A;. It can look okay when you're wearing a lolita item outside of lolita, but if you're trying to pull off lolita, please invest in a petti or find some way to poof!

☆ Six ~ Color matching. It looks nice to have the same shade of pink everywhere, but I don't really care for color matching at all. xD It's kind of ridiculous to me when someone is made fun of for their shoes being slightly off the pink of their skirt. xD

☆ Seven ~ The way other people see it. Some people see that you're dressed differently and automatically assume it's some pedophilia thing or that you're just crazy. I hate that I can't go out in loli without knowing someone is thinking about it in the wrong sort of way.

☆ Eight ~ Style rivalries. I never even got it ;A;. I still don't get it! Why would you argue because someones wearing pink and the other is wearing black? It's ridiculous xD. Luckily I haven't seen much of that outside of lolita secrets.

I suppose that will have to do! I really can't think of anything else at the moment x~x.

Have a great day! Thanks for looking! ;u;!


  1. I actually agree with almost everything here XD It's kinda hard to find things you hate about a fashion one love so much, but there are a few downsides with it like the accesability and the prices... And I completely agree with you on the fakeness myself! D8 I prefer my own hair and minimal makeup myself.

  2. It really is! I've been thinking about it and I just keep on thinking of good things xD Oh well, my list will have to stay at 8! Even though I admire the look on others, and it would be fun to try, I just don't think it's for me, no matter how OTT I would like to be sometimes xD.

  3. I completely agree with your list. The whole being fake kind of scares me. I have circle lenses but they are for outside use [ie. with jeans or a skirt] and the fake eye lashes don't bother me as long as people wouldn't go over the top with them. Like 5 of them, geez! No need for all that XD

  4. It always looks nice in crazy photoshoots or for bigger meets or conventions of things but for some reason I couldn't bring myself to wear so many enchancements LOL. five lashes is a lot @~@.
