I like having lolita even if I don't ever wear them. I don't have any rare or special pieces, just old stuff no one really wants anymore because it's what was popular when I was passionate about lolita as a kid that just discovered it (~2006-2012)
I don't go to meets or cons, most activities I do I like to be able to move freely without the weight/mass of petticoats or shoes too cute to scuff up, so I have these beautiful expensive clothes just sitting nicely in my closet that don't get worn.
It makes me a little sad sometimes, but at the end of the day I'm happy to have them there. Maybe someday I'll find an excuse to wear them out, but for now it's just cozy to look at.
