Lolita fashion is a fashion subculture from Japan emerged during the 1990s as a radical form of street style. It is both kawaii, Victorian, and diverse in its presentation. Harajuku girls began taking the streets of Tokyo and their fashion can now be found all around the world!
The outfit I'm dressed in today is part of Sweet Lolita style, with its dolls, cuddly toys that is in reference to Victorian children's literature - very similar to an Alice in Wonderland look! But there is also Gothic Lolita or Punk Lolita style.
I never thought I'd get to experience this side of Japanese culture and I'm glad to have let my inner Lolita twirl!

Learn to sew. There's nothing in that outfit that's hard to make. The blouse is the hardest, and that's because of the sleeves. But there's BUNCHES of tutorials on You Tube how to do that.
Just remember this: The more you fuss the better it will look.
To all the would be Lolitas who are moaning how expensive this passion is, may I suggest you learn to sew. Yes, I hear the cries of how you don't have the talent. Well it's not talent. It's a skill and you CAN learn it. Think how much less money you would spend if your onlyexpenses for a full on Lolita look were the wig, the shoes, the socks, and the handbag. That's right everything else is EASY to make. What's more it's yours and yours along--nobody will have one like it.
The Dress: Simple lines. three to four pieces for the skirt and two to three pieces for the jumper-top. The ruffles are the only part that takes some skill, and really you need patience because there's an attachment that goes on a sewing machine that takes care of the rest. The lace is sewn on.
The petticoats are the same as the dress
The Blouse is probably the hardest part only because it has sleeves. There are literally hundreds of You Tube tutorials how to do sleeves.
The bow is the easiest. Christmas ribbon on a headband. Glue gun and good music.
Look into it. You get to have more fashion, you get to be creative, you get to look adorable, and you get smarter! What more could you ask?
I went here for my birthday last month! It was such an amazing experience. I've wanted to dress in Lolita for years but could never afford an entire coord. All the staff was so nice to me with my little Japanese skills. I finally felt kawaii and not embarrassed about it!
