What is your personal interpretation of classic lolita? What does it mean to you? What inspires you to wear classic?

What would the perfect classic lolita meet look like?

What is the most beautiful classic thing you own?

Post your favourite classic coords.

This. I love how with enough effort, anyone can look good in it. I love the florals and the colours in them. I love the attention to detail, from the jacquard to the pintucks to the scallops to the lace. I love the Victorian aesthetic and the Romantic and the Regency.

I adore classic because it is clean, quiet, and minimal so that the silhouette and fabrics really stand out.
I myself am a substyle-hopper, because I love just about everything about lolita, but classic has a special place in my heart. Growing up, the American Girl doll Samantha had a huge influence on my desired style. I wanted to be a spoiled, gilded age princess just like her.
Anne of Green Gables is my other classic inspo.
To me, classic is the style that requires the most attention to detail regarding consistent fabric weights and lace types.
Classic is classy (of course), maidenly, stylish, and gentle.

Let's post nice pictures instead of responding to shitty bait.

I like classic lolita because it go anywhere from toned down, to elegant and refined, to absolutely OTT. I love classic lolita because it can have such a DIY aspect that encourages you to look into other hobbies like jewelry making and historical garments. I love how classic lolita examines the finer details, like pintucks and delicate lace.

Man I just love classic lolita.

I guess it's partly the insecurity that comes with seeing that something you like and do is going out of style a bit. Sweet used to be the big thing for years and sweet lolitas got most of the attention.
There has been a slow shift for a few years and by now classic (and increasingly gothic) are the cream of the crop. Just look at the big events - at Träumerei, there were maybe 10 proper sweet lolitas present, everyone else wore classic and gothic.
In my opinion, there is no need for this kind of rivalry though. Classic lolitas dealt with being 2nd place while sweet as big, now it's the sweet lolitas' time. It will change again in a few years.

>what inspires you to wear classic?
Glad you asked, anon. I have a fetish. Hear me out. Im only attracted to... well, older ladies. Women with experience, women of another time, with values. The first day I went out in classic lolita a mature older lady stopped me in the street to tell me how much she loved my dress. How my crinoline reminded her of her childhood. Thats when she delicately lifted the edge of my skirt to take a peek underneath. I blushed. We locked eyes. Something inside of me changed.
Im 23, female, in the final year of my degree, and I love the attention From hot cougars. No one has class like an older woman. No one has confidence, sexual energy, like a woman in her late 60s in a power suit.
When I marry her, Im going to wear pic related. I think we will honeymoon in Italy.

Wait wait wait wait, a mature influence? Will my retarded mommy fetish I don't reveal in public or even non-anonymously online finally go away? I am not a lesbian nor bi actually, hence why I said a month only. I just feel as a mentally ill age regressor that never acted out in a sexual way (no i don't like diapers or sippy cups...sippies sometimes actually when nobody's looking). I definitely need help plus my virginity and lack of sexual experience makes me confused in an ed gein way so I'm pretty sure it's all based on some shit that can be clinically diagnosed and maybe treated, don't know where to begin though.

No no no no no. I am a woman. I think if I was like this as a male, I'd get out and kill myself. There's still somewhat hope for me, or at least I like to pretend there is because there are tons of thots who are like this too but see this as a kink exclusively, somewhat a good cope for me even though it's such a struggle for me to impulsively act like a literal baby and make those baby sounds even though I don't have a mommy.

>What is your personal interpretation of classic lolita? What does it mean to you? What inspires you to wear classic?
Elegance and refinement, whatever your interpretation of it means. I think the joy of classic lolita is that on one hand, you can have very subdued classy coordinates, and on the other, you can very baroque OTT. It's fun to play with the spectrum and have both. For me though, my comfort zone is somewhere in the middle.

Honestly this is going to sound a bit tired at this point but FR and Herajika inspired me to do classic lolita. I remember after getting my babby's first taobao I would stare at their coordinates and long for my dream Mary Magdalene dresses. Little did I know I would achieve them someday, it seemed like a really far reach back then as they were so rare even then.

>What would the perfect classic lolita meet look like?
Like this? >>10190610

In all seriousness a nice tea and being able to actually talk classic burando with my tea mates instead of having people sort of stare blankly at me when I gush about Victorian Maiden/Mary Magdalene/old Juliette et Justine. I did have something close to that recently though!

>What is the most beautiful classic thing you own?
It's quite hard to choose, but probably Valeria.

Classic is not becoming more popular than sweet, there are more sweet than classical coords in CoF and they receive more attention. Classical brands such as Mary Magdalene are dying or already dead while AP has it full force. What may be happening is sweet-classic gaining popularity as sweet lolitas mature and don’t feel comfortable in ‘pastel vomit’ anymore.

I don't think it ever really mattered anyway. A lot of lolitas end up experimenting with another substyle, if it isn't sweet-classic it'll be Halloween sweet, gothic-classic, punk-sweet, whatever. The only ones wanting to argue the substyles need to angry at another substyle are the roleplayers with too much free time.

Now this is the one I struggle with a lot. The division between sweet and classic makes a lot of sense, with several transition points like sweet-classic, AP's more classic dresses, and IW's sweet prints. But the difference beween classic in the black colourway and atelier pierrot style gothic can sometimes be very hard to tell. I'm starting to think the substyles are more of a spectrum, fuck

Mary Magdalene is probably the least forgiving because they have almost no dresses with shirring and they’re very tailored, which shows good workmanship but means most dresses really only fit a very specific body: about 5’2”, 24-25 inch waist, A-B cup breasts. I’m lucky to be thin enough to fit their measurements, but there are a few dresses that are too short in the torso for me. Victorian Maiden also usually doesn’t have shirring but they’re sized much more generously, a good length for me but sometimes too wide.

I don't think they aren't classic, lol... of course they are! They still are very much a part of classic styles even if I don't particularly like them. OP said "what is classic to you" and I find the elegance and simplicity of "my" classic can be cluttered up by heavy floral prints. To be clear, I'm not just talking about any print with flowers on them, I'm talking Granny's ugly carpetbag style florals. I don't think people shouldn't wear them, I just don't like them and prefer solid prints with pretty details. I guess people don't agree xD

I guess what you're getting at is that you aren't a fan of small busy florals? It's different from what you were implying in >>10194147 but I guess I get what you're getting at in this particular post. I had the same issues with last year's VM release of the gobelin JSK for similar reasons.

Also try not to use emoticons, it's generally frowned upon here.

Sorry for blogpost incoming. I searched for 'innocent world teaparty' on google and I found this. I nearly forgot they had a tea party in Vienna in 2013! Gosh, this brings so many feelings - I hope they attend more overseas events in the future, I'm dying for this sort of thing.

I still post. I just err on the side of caution sometimes (no lolitas of Instagram or recent post types for instance.) I don't engage with shit posters.

Is there anything remotely close to Mary Magdalene? It seems like they've just left a void and not even taobao has tried to copy them. I just love their silhouette and they are peak classic lolita to me. Which Japanese brand is as close as it gets to MM these days?

>> No.10195055

Probably Rosa Bianca, although cgl doesn't seem to like them

Personally I felt VM was a good enough substitute when MM just fell off the face of the earth. Then they changed styles which wasn't my thing but I think going in new directions can be good once they find their footing. Their new release looks very promising though - the plaid high collar OP while it's been done before is very much a weakness of mine.

Rosa Bianca looks to take a much more literal retro style direction than MM, which was more like pseudo victorian/edwardian/vintage vibes. Their stuff is probably nice and all, but I feel they could definitely have more detail in their pieces. I feel like I could get pic related for cheaper at a vintage store, whereas with MM I feel like I'm getting a design, while inspired, is a really unique blend of inspirations.

/cgl/ is mostly filled with sweet lolitas, let's be real. The only thing anyone ever cares about are AP releases and it's depressing.

Do you think VM is a good fit to replace MM these days? Some of their pieces look close, but VM really has it's own style.

I think one of their designers went over to VM from MM, but you're right that they're completely their own style.

MM was much more flattering to me, particularly their JSKs, and I miss them so much.

Some items are similar like classical doll/whytealeafe, but I feel like VM's bodices are little more high waisted or have a horizontal waist seam which looks a little less elegant

Some is more retro like that, but some do remind me of MM (pic related)

MM's designer used to work at VM before she made her own brand iirc. That would be weird if she came back on again.

I just looked at my wardrobe and while I see the trend there, MM's waists seem to be hugely variable and some (like the old school chiffon OP and Morgane) sit incredibly high on me almost to my chest. Appolonia is also incredibly high cut along with a few other of their empire waists, giving a much different silhouette to their dropped waists. I think overall they do have cuts that are very flattering and not tubelike which can be hit or miss for other brands.

That being said, while I can appreciate Rosa Bianca for sticking with it's particular style, it does nothing for me against something like Morgane or Farutetto, or even their simpler floral JSKs that have wonderfully coordinated details like trim and tulle on the bottom. Personally while I can appreciate a good cut, and I do like the bow details here, I really need more details in my pieces.

You're right, I agree there's nothing quite like MM. JetJ could come close if they tried but they just vacillate between making painting-plastered skater dresses and 10,000 frill monsters. I'll just post some old jetj so we can all cry.

This is my new way of describing modern JetJ.
I'm ready for the tears. RIP older classic detailing.
