We get it. You're a stickler for the fashion rules. You don't want newbies to make typically newbie mistakes like you did. That doesn't give you license to jump down the throats of more experienced lolita when they mention that they've broken a couple of rules. We're not all going to let ourselves get scared stiff of what's said on egl, play it safe and wear the same damn thing, and we shouldn't be told to.



Holyshit. I just think one needs to have a petticoat to be lolita?
I'm not jumping out anyones throat, have you noticed.

Honestly, as someone who wears lolita often in public, it is impractical to wear it everywhere. Unless your daddy is made of money, or what not, I'd advise against it. If you do a lot of walking in hot weather, it can get pretty gross to wear a fully frilly outfit (even with a parasol), so you either have to break "rules" of lolita, suck it up or entirely go without the lolita that day. Most western lolis, myself included, just break a few rules, like going without a petticoat or with a very light one, going sock-less and so on.

There will be places you absolutely don't want to expose your clothes to, not for fear of what people would say, but for the sake of your clothes. Example; concerts. Some bands have a pretty chill fan base, and your won't have fear for your brand (or even off brand) getting torn up in a mosh pit or having beer spilled on it. Most concerts won't give you the luxury, though. Many concert venues, especially urban ones, have a bar, which means booze. If you're lucky, most people will only be having beer, but even that can stain. Mixed drinks are rather abundant when someone really wants to get hammered, and these usually involved darker colored hard liquors and juices.

Certain jobs will also make it either impossible or inadvisable to wear lolita. If you handle too much manual labor, I wouldn't wear it. I work in a book store, so it's kinda ok to wear lolita there. If I know I'm going to be handling a lot of boxes of stock, I probably won't wear it, but I'm normally ok to don my lolita clothing. Had it been one of my earlier jobs, I wouldn't do it. My first job was at a movie theater: I had to make popcorn, clean up the bathrooms and serve food to customers on most days. I would never allow my lolita clothes to come near that. I had butter stains and soda syrup all over me on busy days and still smelled like popcorn from my coat being not too far after working and changing clothes and washing up. My second job was an an offic supply store. We had a dress code where we could only wear blue collard shirts and khaki pants or skirt. I know some very clever lolitas that could get around this dress code if their boss was pretty cool, but I doubt that I would have gotten away with it, even if I could manage getting these items as lolita pieces.


yeah, i totally agree with Cerridwen storms.

I voted for "i am already a lolita". I voted this is not bcoz i am boasting myself but that's what i think of myself. Wearing lolita is like a daily thing for me, not wearing it makes me feel uneasy. BUT, like Cerridwen storms says, you can't wear it everytime, but not everyday. It depends on what things are you going to do when going out. *don't feel offence*

Yes, and if people like the style, hopefully people would wear it, too and stop being so preppy. >.<
