To me, the titanic photo was iconic because it brought me back to the fashion after years of self neglect.

pic related is one of the first coords I fell in love with. everything about this photo makes me happy.

quick storytime: my first exposure to lolita fashion was through an original gothic u.k. brand (called dracinabox) when I was 14/15. I thought it was just a youthful fairytale style of gothic and had no idea I was looking at old school gothic, or that it was a Japanese alt fashion with such a rich subculture.
it was etched into me and became my aesthetic, as I tried to recreate the look with halloween costumes every year. years later, when I finally had my own money, the u.k. site had dwindled to dying. my search for more stuff like it finally brought me to LJ EGL and coords like pic related.

I love lolita so much.

Has this been said enough? I've been a member of this community for a very long time, and I just cannot deal with it anymore. I've really gotten sick of everything in this community. No, I'm not sick of people posting auction pictures, I am seriously appaled at the behavior of the members of this community. I'm sorry, I know there are certain 'guidelines' to 'proper' EGL, but YOU PEOPLE ARE HYPOCRITES!! How can you say you know everything and are the True Judge of Japanese EGL fashion when YOU DON'T LIVE IN JAPAN? You don't know how and where these people wear their clothes, you don't know how they act when they wear the clothes... It's just absolutely ridiculous to be elitist over something you don't fully understand. As much as you adore the fashion, you can't fully grasp anything you are not an active participant in!

Why would you want that?? I have those gel slip ins to hold my feet in place.. They work really well as my toes are no longer in pain

>> No.9793988

When you read up about the origins of lolita fashion a lot of it is about escapism and creating a gap between you and society. That doesn't mean those people don't wear it regularly.

>> No.9793989

This is a really common thing in Japan for some reason. Apparently, wearing shoes that are too big for you is kawaii.

The only way to get a gap that wide is if you're wearing heels that are more than a size too big. It's good to have a little bit of space for your feet to swell during the day, but it shouldn't be more than about 1cm. If your feet are slipping around that much inside your shoes, try insoles.

>> No.9793991

Its actually a rule not to speculate about dead people. Unless they're actually famous.

>> No.9793992

No one wants that, but it's a normal part of wearing heels? Not everyone puts in gel slip ins.

The gap in that picture doesn't look that big at all, you seem to be projecting. There's at most 1 cm of gap there, and it probably is even less when her weight isn't obviously shifted forward.

Yea but that's only cause people who actually post others to the ita thread are naggy perfectionists who love to shit on people and will literally go out of their way to defend their asshole behaviour.

Have fun ruining your feet. No wonder sandals are a faux pas when clearly girls like you need to hide your destroyed toes.

>> No.9793997

Maybe because some brands only have size S, M and L for shoes

>> No.9793999

Ooookay, nice projection there. Sorry you can't accept a simple fact of life; not everyone does the same things you do. Have fun with your anxiety about imagining girls wearing shoes too big for them.

I learned about Lolita from Taylor R's photoshoot video, a discovery that was completely accidental (I don't watch her). I can't even begin to explain the impact Lolita has had on my life since then.

>> No.9794017

Not projecting... Not even sure where you would get that from but you are obviously memeing.

Slamming your toes into the front of your shoes isn't good for them. Sure, not everyone cares enough to take care of their feet... But that's kind of sad. Don't you want every part of your body to look nice?

I really don't get why you're fighting this so hard. Did I hit a nerve or something? Why are you so ok with your feet being mashed inside your heels?

You're the one being fucking weird anon.

>No one would ever nitpick the tshirts and jeans a normie wears to the grocery store by asking why they aren't dressed like they're going to a cocktail party.

Underrated statement. Although as far as I see by social media the most of lolitas already wear it more comfy when it needed. The necessity of top notch outfits daily is must be opinion of few anons, who's still in their youthful maximalism era.

Tbh it's quite awkward to see people saying lolita is an escapism. We are all basically trying to scape from the stress of normie society to get into stress of lolita society, sometimes less forgiving than normies. From this point I totally agree with anon who said we need no community to wear fashion.

No wonder anon called you out on projecting, you clearly are. Your feet will slide forward in heels if you're leaning forward. That's how gravity works, anon. You can still be comfy the majority of the time in your heels if they're decent quality without slip ins.

1 cm is a full size. Stop buying shoes that are too big for you.
