It’s better to just get Facebook and use it exclusively for lolita stuff. If you’re joining a preexisting come through proxy (ie someone sends you the info) what happens if they forget to tell you a meet has been cancelled, or location change? People use Facebook because it’s easy.

Reddit, mostly. r/worldnews seems to be keeping track of every move FB makes.

The really depressing part is that FB also owns whatsapp and insta, and most of my friends are now on that instead of FB…. but you know if FB goes up in flames they’ll just transfer the algo and make insta as much of a shitty mess as FB was before.


lol anon. My comm had a couple of organisers who planned meetups with posts instead of events. And FB didn’t show them to me. So I was missing meetups on FB anyway.

To answer your question, it’s friends who still have FB who keep me in the loop, but one of the other organisers also started making public meets. I still need to whatsapp/email them to tell them I’d like to come, but at least I don’t have to log in to view the details. Sadly if I have to organise a meetup I’d probably have to go through someone else with facebook. I’m probably still missing meetups, but I already was before anyhow, so it’s not much worse than before.

If meetups were the sole reason for people to stay on FB, I wonder if we’d have more luck with some tools like doodle.com or agreeadate.

>> No.9837901

Insta is already ruined if you used it for lolita updates

>> No.9837919


Not for updates, no, but I'm seeing friends use it like FB ver 2.0. And it's basically that, FB ver 2.0. So if the privacy thing about FB selling all your data to CA and then CA using it to influence people to vote Trump into office was the thing that bothered you about FB, you should probably bail on insta now as well.

For lolitaupdates, someone in the previous thread said to follow the brands directly on twitter, which is what I'm doing. For chinese brands, lolita wardrobe on tumblr posts updates, shellolita.com is also posting as much chinese lolita as possible, but the site admin seems to be having trouble keeping updates going.

While I'm unsure about IW's underbust measurements, I'd advise you to be careful because IW isn't exactly forgiving for larger busts, generally speaking. Even if this does "fit", it has potential to be very unflattering and possibly make you look like a bar wench.

>> No.9838816

Sure you can post pics, Japanese lolita do this quite often from what I've seen. If you tag the brand you're wearing, the brands can notice you too.

>> No.9838907


I have a friend who buys the corset jsks when their regular jsk/ops are sold out. I think she's like ~95cm bust, but IW jsks used to be ~90cm busts, so kind of similar to your difference.

She uses a sports bra to squish up her bust. Up, not down or side, so the bust gets lifted to the opening. Then covers up the mess with a bolero. I'm not gonna lie, without the bolero the boob squish did look pretty bad. With the bolero it looks all right though.

The other thing to be careful is with the torso length. I have a longer torso, so even though my bust is smaller by an inch, the corset dresses generally look a lot worse on me because the underbust portion hits me at my bust area even with a lifting bra.

I think if you're average height (if other dresses' waists generally hit you in the right place) it's okay to wear them but you'd probably need to cover up with a bolero. Hope that helps.

Like tenso (forwarder service), they let you adjust the total value of your package.

What is Sensationalism
I'm sure your country has plenty of murders, without knowing which one I can't compare the population density.
What people keep harping on is 'mass shooting this' 'mass shooting that'
Mass shooting is 4 people die to gun violence at one time, gang violence is not filtered out because the news likes to keep those numbers high.
More people get killed with hammers than guns.
The US has a shoddy media that blows every little thing out of proportion for ratings.
The US is also massive and has different crimes rates depending on how dense the population is.
If you compare a country like Finland to an area like Minnesota, where both have a population of over 5 million, Minnesota 'wins' with a lower crime rate overall. I could get specific, but I didn't dive that deep for this post.

What's interesting is US issues are global because of the same media that exaggerates how bad it is here, I'm sure that if other countries were not as strict on what their media is allowed to say (And your news outlets were as hungry for death as ours is) I'd be sitting here thinking 'Wow, I'd never want to live in a place like that' about all sorts of progressive first world countries on the other side of the pond.

I didn't even mention anything about your right to carry or your gun laws in general. You just can't talk about murders and make a point about overall lower crime rate which hides the fact youe country is more violent than most first world countries. Sweden has a similar murder rate to Finland and I think we can all agree Sweden has svere problems with them. You can blame whatever you like of your high murder rates but the it won't change and the reason to it probably is much more complicated than immigrants. Gangs and drugs add to it no doubt but the question is why there are no gangs or multiple drug related murders in most European countries? Could it be your politics suck in one way or another?

agreed. I really don't think it's okay to even suggest removing gun rights. that's an absurd and a horrible idea. the blackmarket will explode and everyone will be mowed down by illegal gun toters. what would we do in the event of an evil military state?
>some people use their hands to create works of art, or reasonably defend themselves when need be
>Some people are molesters and thieves
>let's remove everyone's hands at birth just to be safe guys!1!11

we should really look into making public areas safer and increasing education. not making it more difficult for people to buy basic firearms.
why can't we have lightweight metal detectors at the entrances of all large buildings and gathering spots? like, we have watchphones and things like Goog glass, but we don't have standard, non-obtrusive detectors built into front doors?

My bag gets checked at the movies to make sure I don't have any glass items, but we can't have smart metal detectors installed everywhere? guns are this terrifying taboo thing that you either grow up with experience with or never touch/see one in real life. if it's a right then I think all people should be required to learn gun safety and how to operate a firearm/disarm a psycho killer.

It’s surprisingly difficult to find this dress being sold under retail, despite the original release being four years ago. It just seems to be one of those underrated dresses that you don’t hear a lot about, but the secondhand price never really drops even after four years.

Personally I’d rather secure it now at retail than cry that I can only find scalped used dresses later on. I’m >>9841794 and this dress wasn’t even a dream dress for me.

Plus, look at it another way. The dress is four years old, if you cared that much about being on time then it was outdated 3 years ago. I’d think of it as one of those timeless classics that you can always wear. There’s nothing that says I can’t wear a floral jsk with a long-sleeved blouse in winter anyway.

Set aside 30-40 for a nice blouse and comb second hand sales for one you like, do some research so you know you can use it.
Accessories are expensive, but if you teach yourself some basic sewing you can make wristcuffs, keep an eye out in normal stores and thift stores for cute jewlery.
Get a lot of cute socks, otks can be tricky to find, but you can find them. If tights are more your thing, all the better since there are tons of options.

Seconding "lurk more". That's what I did in my very first beginning. Just lurked /cgl/ and all secondhand sites and Taobao. Didn't buy shit for months, just observed and got an idea for prices on the secondhand market and pieces that I'm looking for.

Budget lolita is less about shoehorning normie closet shit and more about timing and decisiveness.

Depending on the kind of lolita you want to be (sweet, classic, goth, etc), start with solids or patterns with a some textural detailing or pintucks. Something that could be dressed down or up depending on blouse and accessories. Some lolita appropriate shoes in a neutral colour that matches your bag. And at least two blouses, one relaxed and casual, the other dressy.

When I got down to actually buying, I only got one to three items per month. Like September was my first JSK and blouse to go with it. Then October came the petticoat. Then November was the shoes and bag. December was more about the wristcuffs and socks.

Plain staples are good. Ruffled ankle socks in accent colours, plain lolita maryjanes or oxfords. After I can get three solid looks from one JSK, I continue to build by wardrobe by buying another piece and shopping around for accessories for a couple months after that. It was a slow process for me as a poorfag. I started lurking in the summer of 2016 and now I'm just starting to be able to wear lolita at least once a week with a different coord each time. Don't be discouraged, if anything, it'll help you figure out whether you really want to be a lolita or whether it's an impulse thing.

I've used Taobao a lot, but if I were to do it again, I wouldn't. Secondhand burando is where it's at.

>> No.9842847


Start by making one complete outfit with your jsk first. There’s no point buying a ton of stuff you never wear. Never buy something just because it's cheap, make sure it's something you'll actually use.

After that one outfit, you can either make a capsule wardrobe, or make strict rules for your wardrobe. Figure out what you wear lolita for, then work backwards and figure out how many pieces you need. Chose a substyle and stick to it, you can’t afford a large wardrobe so you’ll only end up with one coord in each substyle. Always keep your wardrobe in control so you aren’t spending money on things you never wear or things that only suit one coord. It’s not a bargain if it’s something you never use.

Lurk more if you can’t figure out what you want for your wardrobe. Some colours are more common and easier to work with. Some are less popular and come up for sale cheaper than others.

Learn where to buy cheap. Learn when brands have sales and lucky packs, learn to shop Fril, yja, mbok and taobao. Don’t waste money on resellers.

>> No.9843105

I don't really agree with you. I own a lot of skirts and love them, but unless you have a variety of blouses/cutsews/accessories/jackets/bustiers your coordinates are going to get stale fast. OPs are probably the cheapest to coordinate because you don't need a blouse and can instead focus on accessory buying.

>> No.9843114

What I did as a fellow beginner is to finish that first lolita coord. I bought a jsk first, then a petticoat for it. After some thought I got a blouse for it, and then eventually worked my way to getting socks, shoes, and hair accessory. Necklace, bracelets...etc...are things I got after I wore my first coord and decided that I did enjoy wearing lolita and wanted to complete the look. Personally, I find that putting together and wearing that first coord out really pushed things forward with what I wanted to do next.

You may like the jsk you have now, but you may feel differently about it when you coord it, or even months from now after you have worn it a few times. But by actually wearing that first coord, you might gain 1) more confidence to wear the fashion, and 2) getting one step closer to knowing what you want to do next in the fashion/build a wardrobe.

Good luck!

Get stuff that you love. When I started my wardrobe wasn't very big, but whenever I bought something cheap solely for filling out my wardrobe, I felt really unfulfilled. The pieces were cute, and some of them were brand, but I just felt 'meh' in them.
Even if it means you have to save, in my opinion it's better to have three dresses that make you feel on top of the world than ten dresses you feel 'meh' in. Of course, if you're the sort of person who isn't picky and likes, say, all 2010 sweet that's going for cheap, then that's perfect, but for me, the stuff that I prefer happens to be more on the expensive side second hand, so it took longer to get a good wardrobe.

idk man, there's "lolitas dun hav 2 b luvlies", and then there's "nevermind your clothes, you're clearly batshit mental". There's kind of a difference between some responsible adult drinking and smoking, and shoving your vomit into people's faces. One is kind of more unbalanced than the other.

I mean, we already don't tolerate sissies and fetishists trying to get into our comms because they shit all over the place and attract even worse predators in. And we laugh at weebs and itas because they're so cringey and stupid. Do you really want to swap that for attracting all actual crazies and loonies out there and make lolita out to be the thing you join if you like showing people your vomit?

I mean sure, we shouldn't be quiet doormats with fake personalities, but can't we at least be somewhat sane and not embarrassing to be around?

I've been feeling this lately too, I haven't looked at lacemarket in about a week now and made my purchases elsewhere. Lately going on lacemarket I just see the same names most of the time and it's always scalpers and resellers.

>> No.9843452


(obviously nayrt) After thinking about this a little bit, I can sort of see it. After all with a cutsew your top never changes. And you'd chose a skirt that doesn't clash with your cutsew. So if you have very few cutsews, after a while you'd hit the limit of colour combinations that look good for your cutsews, and your wardrobe starts to take on only one style.

Whereas with OPs every dress will be different from top to bottom. If you can manage your accessories you could have the same number of OPs as skirts and be in more different substyles, because you aren't limited by your top half always looking the same.

But I'd agree with you, a handful of cutsews and their matching skirts would usually work out cheaper, provided you have an eye for choosing decent colour combinations, or you don't mind sticking solely to one substyle (so that most things match each other).

>> No.9843495

This looks so cheap. Yeah it’s cute but more like Ank Rouge tier than Ap

>> No.9843522

What kind of mental gymnastics are you doing? Skirt+blouse is cheaper secondhand than an OP. You would have more of them, and you shouldn't buy a blouse that only goes with 1 skirt. Yes, you can also wear blouses and cardigans with an OP, but you would have less money so less pieces to mix and match overall.

I was going to say you may want to transition to another fashion that gives you the same sort of feeling but then I saw that you're using the word more generally. Are you specifically losing interest in lolita? Because you wouldn't be alone in that regard, the number of leaving sales that have been happening seem to be at a high.

It's ok to let things go and move on when it's time to do so, anon. It's also worth keeping in mind that excitement in all things fade over time, so if you're worried about perpetually chasing that feeling then you probably have more self examination to deal than just concerning yourself about fashion feels.

The timing puts a lot of space prints in summer, which is time for beach trips and sailor collars. If you're a city girl, you'd be able to see more stars on a beach trip.

But even if you treat lolita like regular clothes, it’s not a logical next step to post pictures of your vomit. I don’t understand what point you’re trying to make.

I agree completely. It really annoys me when someone acts really inappropriately either online or at a meetup (screaming at people, climbing public artwork, posting pics of vomit) and then when asked to tone it down they trot out the “lolitas aren’t lovlies” excuse. Nobody is asking them to be ~lovly~, just a normal adult human. What kind of messed up upbringing does someone have to have had to not see the huge grey area between fake-voiced princess and screeching monkey? It’s not an either-or thing.

>> No.9844016

If you haven't been around for long: when lifestyle lolita became popular, there were people who wanted to proof how much it's just regular clothes by doing extra edgy stuff and posting pictures of them doing gross or adult things in lolita. Someone in my comm posted a pic of herself wearing lolita on the toilet.Those are the people more likely to make fun of ~lolitas r luvlies~

>> No.9844022

>[with OPs] you aren't limited by your top half always looking the same

If you always pair the same top with the same skirt then yes there’s not a lot of variety and that outfit can essentially be treated like an OP, but I don’t understand how you then go on to say that OPs have MORE variety than fixed top/skirt combos. It’s the same or less variety. With a top/skirt combo you can switch one out when you do eventually find something else that matches, but with an OP you can’t remove the bodice from the skirt.

>> No.9844029

I do remember those people and I’m as confused about them now as I was back then. We never had anyone post pics of themselves on the toilet but we did have a girl who filmed herself humping street lights, and a group who always light up their cigarettes in the middle of the group and then complain about us being “prissy” when we ask them to move downwind. Because you’d have to be a prissy lifestyler to not want to inhale secondhand tobacco smoke or have your clothes stink of it, apparently.

Yes, anon.

If you go back and read the comment, it’s qualified with ”if you have very few cutsews" or "the same number of OPs as skirts".

The only part you seem to have missed is that the comment itself was butting into another conversation, which in turn was responding to another anon asking about getting into lolita while being a poorfag.

That’s where the limitation on the cutsew/main pieces is from. Imagine a scenario where a beginner lolita is very slow in saving up money to buy pieces to add to her wardrobe. So imagine that for a long time, this person has a choice of owning either one cutsew and a few skirts (she’ll save up enough to add another cutsew the following year), or owning a couple of dresses.

That’s the scenario where even though she has a few different main pieces, her top half will always be the one cutsew. Plus, you cannot simply throw on a clashing skirt, so even with three skirts all three will have to be similar enough that they match the cutsew.

If, instead of owning one cutsew and a few skirts, she chose the option of owning two OPs, the two OPs can be two different substyles altogether. You wouldn’t want to swap their bodices because the styles would clash, you just enjoy being able to do one style for this month’s meet up and a different style for next month’s meetup.

I’ll also point out, the end of the comment actually agrees with you, cutsew + skirts is usually the cheaper route, you just need some coording skills because you can’t just throw a random skirt at a random cutsew and assume they’ll look okay no matter what

>> No.9844269

I hate that meme that healthcare in Germany is "free". We have compulsary health insure, and you have to pick between a public statutory insurance or a private one and both cost you money. Statutory is like the second class treatment, they won't let you die but there are also many things that are not covered by this insurance (in many cases check-ups, rehab, or if you need a treatment for something that is not supported by that insurance company, if you are chronically ill and if you are dependend on expensive life long treatment they can also say "fuck you it's too expensive for us" and tell you to switch the company or pay your doctors visists/receipts yourself). Private is better, you get priority treatment, but on top of your monthly fee you have pay your treatments out of you own pockets first and the insurance company refunds you the costs afterwards. Basically no-one except for state employees can afford this so we are all stuck in the second class treatment limbo. Public health insurance may be affordable for most people, but many people exploit it and our hospitals and waiting rooms are exploding and so the offered service is horrible or not available at all (many physicians don't even take new patiens anymore, so full are they) so it's not really a good system if you ask me. And if you can't afford public insurance and you never held a job (let's say poor student who just graduated) you don't qualify for unemployment benefits, and you don't qualify for insurance paid by the state. You have to find a way to pay for it, because not having an insurance is illegal (this fucks over many people).

>> No.9844395

Well I think we can all agree that there is no such a thing as free health care anywhere. Most countries have some kind of fees even though they are significantly lower than the real cost and tax money used works basically similarily to insurance: everyone contributes and in exchange you get compensated if something costly happens. With taxes you can't choose how much you will pay or what it will cover though.

But op is almost always expensive compared to same print series' skirt. Cutsew would also allow expanding into jsks. However, I think it depends also what style anon is aiming for. If it's something they are only going to wear to meets and always be fancy ops might be better but if daily then the skirt cutsew combo. I think it's just a bit silly to compare cutsew and op unless we are talking about WW's LM (which btw is a good option) because the prices will be usually atleast a hundred apart.

I'm really surprised you didn't have to pay tax for some smaller brands. I'm not familiar with Japanese law, but in my country, the brand still has to pay tax for products they sell to international customers. So of course they include that tax in their price. It's just custom in Japan to state the price of an item + the tax in parentheses. Selling in internationally isn't the same as exporting so.
