I haven't seen one of these here before, but I found a cute hashtag I want to dump some posts from. Feel free to post any lolita-related twitter things you'd like here too!

着たい服がある (I have clothes I want to wear) is the name of a currently running manga about a tall, shy girl who "isn't cute" and doesn't fit the image of a lolita, but who wears the fashion anyway and gets closer to the people around her through it. The title is also being used as a hashtag by Japanese lolitas to post about how much they love the fashion even if they're not ideal lolitas either. A lot of the posts are very heartwarming and pretty so I thought I'd share summaries of them here.

I'll try to summarise their posts, sorry in advance if it's awful

>I still want to wear these clothes even now I'm a mother. I want to cherish this feeling.

着たい服がある、それは母親となった今でも同じ気持ち。私はその気持ちを大切にしていきたい。

ロリィタファッションももちろん、
ジャンルにとらわれず「可愛い好き」と思ったものを自信を持って身に纏っていたいものです。
何度も言うように、服と人の関係は「お友達」。自分が素敵と思えばお洋服は答えてくれるはずです。

What is big sister lolita?

I could be misunderstanding, but is this some Negative Nancy saying:
>lol you shouldn't wear cute stuff if it doesn't suit you
>I like cute stuff too, but I'm not going to wear it until I change myself to be cuter
> my friends agree too

『#着たい服がある 』を読んで思ったのですけれど、何故“第三者から見た似合う服or好きだけど似合わない服”の二択になってしまうので御座いましょうね?

《好きなテイストの中で許容できるされる似合う服》を選ぶという折衷案もありますのに憧れという呪いはそんなにも抗いがたいものなの?

私は顔立ちや体型からして“可愛い”服が似合わないのは承知ですので、憧れがあっても最初から選択肢に含まれないんですのよね。

可愛い服は顔も体型も可愛い人が着た方が絶対に可愛いわけですわ。
そこは理解しているので、無理に己を造り変えてまで可愛い服を着ようとは思わないんですの。

霊感のある友人曰く「物には波動があるから、似合う服を着ている人は身体と服が馴染んで見えるけど、似合わない服を着ている人は身体と服がバラバラに見える。そのズレのせいで似合わない服を着続けると運気が下がったり身体の不調が出たりする」そうですので、似合う服を着た方が良いですのよね。

If that is indeed what she's saying, wow fuck that noise. There are many more people posting in the hashtag who disagree with her, she can take her attitude and go. Maybe if she actually gave it a shot and wore Lolita, she'd feel happier about herself!

I seem to have hit the end of the hashtag. There are some more out there jfash looks that I didn't post because they weren't Lolita, should I post those too? They're pretty neat too, I just didn't know if people would be interested.

I think the idea there is just that she looks more grown up? Kind of like Soft Lolita or what we'd call Otome

Second this. Reading all these posts felt really good and was exactly what I needed. Thank you for the wholesomeness.

Thank you for making this OP. I always worry about aging out of lolita because society will eventually deem me "too old" (i'm 26). This gave me encouragement

Society deems you too old for frills and bows by the time you're 12, that's the point of alt fashion, wearing whatever you like despite what society may think.

I am 38 and I still wear lolita. Don't give a shit what people think. If you love it, do it as long as it's not hurting anyone else.

This really made my day.
I am love seeing people who feel stronger in their frils, too. It is a little to fun seeing this echoed over seas.
