Okay, I'm done with this thread.
Thank you to everyone for your support, and also thank you to those of you who disagreed. I heard a lot of sound arguments on both sides, and I feel better.
If you have anything you really want to say still, you can message me. However, I am closing this, because it seems like the longer this drags on, the more and more it becomes twisted. I keep seeing misunderstandings over and over.
So thank you everyone for your input. I'll consider it all carefully. And as always, I appreciate EGL for being unbiased, even towards their own fashion, and able to give good advice. ^^

Okay, I had a little altercation at school today that involved me wearing lolita, and I want some opinions on this. Please read carefully so that you understand.( Read MoreCollapse )
Last year I bought Twinkle Journey in black, my absolute dream dress and not cheap or easy to find. It still has the tags and I never found the opportunity to wear it. A lot has changed, primarily that I'm healthier now, and to my dismay, I found the dress no longer fits my bust. I thought about getting it altered, but even then there's no guarantee it will look good or that I will be able to realistically wear it more than once a month. I'm just typically a much more toned down Lolita.
So how do you know when it's time to move on from a favorite piece? How long do you wait before letting something go? It's been a year, I've never worn it and without alterations I never will. Have you ever regretted selling something? Or felt better once it was gone? I adore this dress so much and I feel so sad to part with it, but I hate having something that also reminds me of where I was and where I am now with my body.
Hello, I'm wondering what's the max alterations JetJ is able to make. I'm interested in one dress, but I'm not sure how they can help me, so please share some experience with me! ^__^
Hello to all,
I'd like to know if this skirt can fit my 72 cm waist since has also a partial shirring and i'm not sure if that 70 is aproximative and with the shirring can be extended over 70 cm.

Okay, I know lolita is originated from Japan and the story goes on... So, I am going to move to Japan in 2 years the later and I wanted to ask, do guys there find lolita style attractive? Are they interested in girls in lolita? Sorry if it's a wierd/stupid question but I was wondering a lot.

cederlina posting in egl: Too old
I wish there was no age limit for certain clothing styles in society but unfortunately there is and it seems that it isn't easy to change. For example: people are sometimes negatively looked on by their bosses because of the lolita clothing they wear in their free time
, and in tv programs like 'snog, marry or avoid' it is clear that most people think alternative fashions are extremely childish, whether it is gothic, punk or lolita.
Even though I agree that you can only change the opinion of society by actively advocating the fashion you like by wearing it and 'acting normal', I also can't help but kind of agree.( here's whyCollapse )
What is your opinion on this? When do you think someone is too old for:
- sweet lolita
- gothic lolita
I think classic is the only thing that can be worn almost a lifetime, but only when it is toned down
thanks in advance if you reply.
I've never posted on EGL before, but a couple of friends of mine suggested posting a video I did of our adventures around Osaka on the weekend, eating 15th Anniversary Innocent World Pies and buying goods from Ahcahcum-Muchacha.
I hope you enjoy!
(Please note: This is my first ever video, so go easy on me please! Also, the ending was cut off by about 5 seconds and I'm not sure why. Will try to fix it but this will do in the meantime.)Music:
