I'm starting to miss wearing Lolita and want to buy more.
I stopped buying it because I realized I was in a never-ending cycle of buying a new dress, getting excited for new dress, and then moving on to the next new dress. Every piece I coveted was going to be be THE thing I really needed to complete my wardrobe or wear lolita more. It never really was.
I also just found Lolita uncomfortable to wear. I know everyone is going to respond wear cutsews, don't wear wigs etc but it's not that, I think I just have some issues with clothes that can't be avoided with Lolita.
I also just hate getting comments in lolita so I stopped wearing it.
So now I'm worried I'm falling back into old habits. Do I really want a new dress? Or am I just convincing myself it's going to make my life better and this is THE dress, when it's not, and I'm not going to wear it like all the other dresses?

>> No.10438976

>miss wearing Lolita and want to buy more
so... do you miss wearing it or do you miss buying it? challenge yourself to wear the pieces you already have and keep track of how often you actually do it. if it's a real hobby, invest further. but if you only fantasize about wearing and when you check your calendar you see that you haven't actually been wearing it, then don't buy more. have a record of it so you aren't just going off of ~feelings~. I think if you challenge yourself to wear old pieces you will enjoy it enough to get back into it.

I never quite felt I had a shopping addiction, but it was getting there.
I've only worn it once since quarantine and I don't even remember the last time I wore it before then. Probably months ago.

>> No.10438986

Yeah, I think I will.
The problem is it has to be so casual that it's basically just the dress and blouse. Petticoats squish my stomach even though it's loose elastic because just having anything on my stomach kinda hurts. Socks/tights don't feel comfortable. Headbands hurt my head. Like I said I think I have some issues with clothes in general

>> No.10439013

well, it does feel nice to splurge on yourself, but it should be on something you actually use so that you don't feel like your home is stuffed with things you don't need. maybe buy a nice quality normie item like a fresh set of bedsheets or a new pack of socks. Then you can have the feeling of something new in the mail without too much guilt. or some kawaii jewelry like Etsy earrings that you can wear with a tshirt and jeans.

>> No.10439014

Built-in Pettis? Or that cutsew petti that is essentially a dress could help.

>> No.10439017

there are a bajillion taobao classic brands to keep that style going even if all the japanese classic brands closed. that's probably why they're closing anyway, it's so easy to get plain stuff that looks exactly like theirs for way less money

no socks are ok for casual and you could use a clip bow instead of a headband. idk what could be done about the petti though, that's pretty necessary

>>10438976 this anon is right, make new coords from your wardrobe. remember, just because it's a lolita dress you don't have to wear it as a full on lolita coord. wear it however you want, it's just clothes. Only....you know, don't post it anywhere as a lolita coordinate

Posting here because I don't wear gothic and would rather not shit up the gothic lolita general.

I feel bad for Moitie, honestly. It feels like they're primed to get hate no matter which direction the designer chooses to take the brand in. The newer lolitas will are in search of prints, the bigger-sized lolitas will always reeeeee about the sizing (honestly at this point, it feels like no brand is ever big enough), and the (vocal) oldfags are so jaded that everything new is shit compared to the past. If Moitie tries something new, it's "not Moitie", if Moitie rehashes something, it's "plain and uninspired". I wonder what it'll take to please these people. Maybe a fully shirred print designed by Mana himself?

Personally, I find the staff coords with newer Moitie fascinating to look at. They made me realise the versatility of their products.

>> No.10439156

Plai taobao stuff has construction so bad you can see it from their stock photos.
As an oldfag I for one am really happy with their most recent release. An I've seen people screech about stuff being "not Moitie" when they went full autismo with that Alice Aaua style choker and Miku collab, which I honestly agree wasn't their style at all.

>> No.10439159

anon, I'm all for chinese brand pieces, but saying that's possible to find the exact same pieces from Victorian Maiden, for example, on Taobao is far from the truth. I have dozens of chinese branded pieces and none of them are even close to VM's quality and construction. They're are good, but they're not VM (maybe closer to new JetJ...)

>> No.10439163

ok enjoy your classic brands dying while taobao ones thrive. there's a reason for that even if you don't wanna see it

>> No.10439172

I really do love the new batch of releases and will be buying the jsk. The complaints from the old moitie fans are completely understandable since they probably own a huge chunk of moitie and are at a point where maybe the new releases don't seem like anything new or is something they already own.

It seems like moitie can only release so many things. They have to cater for newer moitie fans by trying to provide them basics, providing an opportunity for them to get a hold of classic items because the moitie second hand market is a ghost town, whilst trying to do something new for old fags to enjoy.

People can complain about the sizing all they like, but clearly they still sell out items and it's working for them. I will bet a lot of money that most of them do not even wear gothic lolita or own anything that isn't printed so their opinions are 100% irrelevant.

>> No.10439198

I've gotten really really down about not being able to wear lolita during lockdown. I normally only wear lolita when im at meets/with other lolita friends, so I feel like I have no reason to wear it right now. I've just gotten really down, I'm stuck in the house working from home, i just got turned down from a job i really really wanted, and all i want to do is get dressed nice to make myself feel better. My bf suggested i could wear it in the house, or we could do a silly photoshoot or something, but that just seems kinda sad and pitiful to me. How do I get out of this slump?

>> No.10439205

Tbh it’s just that one fat girl who complains a ton if it doesn’t fit her. Most oldfags seem to like this jsk a ton based on responses.

Also note that the bigger sizing doesn’t sell out as fast as the smaller ones most of the time, so the fatties aren’t proving it’s worth it to cater to them

I have that much sex because I love my boyfriend and it’s the greatest way of bonding with him. Demisexual doesn’t mean having a low sex drive. It means seeing sex as the beautiful romantic bond that it is. If anything, being demi makes me more sexual.

No, they're dying because Chinese lolitas don't care about them. Whereas JetJ is still going strong because Chinese girls love them. Has nothing to do with western girls buying replicas, the west is a tiny market anyway.

Anyone else feels like shit when they spend money on thenselves?
I feel awful for buying a necklace i've wanted for a while now. Money is tight and i make so little, i feel dumb for spending it on something frivolous but it's been so damn long. Life feels empty because i'm just working to put money into savings to maybe have a chance of changing countries.
It sucks, i wish i was born into a wealthy family so i could enjoy my hobbies in peace.

>> No.10439379

I feel you anon. I somewhat resent my family for this. We're not super wealthy but my parents were upper-middle class and my grandparents are low-upper class. But they wanted me to get a job at school "to learn the value of a dollar." So I've been working since 13. Which I understand but my life would be objectively better and more successful if I didn't have to balance work, study and life.

I don't drink, go out with friends or make any frivolous expenses, I cook all my own food and repair my clothes. I spend all my time working or studying. I would be miles ahead by now if I could have purely focused on my studies but I get nothing from my family other than the occasional cash gift for birthday and Christmas. I know plenty of people who have their parents pay for everything and still are good people but their careers and studies are way ahead of mine. They have so much time for extra-curriculars, resume builders and networking and will get better jobs than me. I have an okay GPA and a supermarket job.

Then my parents complain that I'm too serious and never make time for family and I'm "All work no play." But I have no choice because they don't understand the costs associated with living near my job and university in the city.

If I am wealthy enough to have my children have studying as their job, I will give them that.

>> No.10439389

I'm in the exact same boat anon... since 14. I can't help but resent them to be honest. My old classmates who had time for extracurriculars and stuff now make 4x as much as me with half of the stress, while i wasted my best years working for peanuts and developed anxiety.
At least you and i won't keep up this shitty cycle.
Hope you can land a better job once you're done with uni and finally be able to live with less stress.

You too anon.

I have suffered with depression a lot and have a lot of failure anxiety which actively stops me from making any changes to my life in case I fail and make an embarrassment of myself because I simply don't have the time to take on extra work loads.

This. With the 10% discount on wunderwelt they have sometimes you can even get cheaper prices on reserve items. Not that fattychans will care and will whine about something else.

This is why "racism outside of /b/" exists.

BLM talk here should be ignored moving forward because of that regardless of what your stance is on the subject.
