Why Lolita?

I've been asked many times "Why do you wear the clothing you do?", and I reply with a smile "Because I like it and it makes me happy." Yup, it's that simple. I believe as long as you're not harming another individual, going against your parent's approval or your personal convictions, you should wear what makes you happy.

After my reply I tend to continue with a question of my own. "Do you ever wear things just because you like them and it makes you happy?" Unfourtunaly the majority of the time I get answers much like "No, not really..." or "I try to wear what's in style." I feel really bad for those girls. They really don't know what they're missing! Then there are those few girls that will gladly reply "Yes, I do! I love to just wear a T-shirt and a pair of jeans, because that's what I enjoy wearing and I'm comfortable in it." More power to those girls! They know what they like and they wear it.

Why is lolita for me?

I'm a girl and I like to celebrate my femininity by wearing feminine clothing. Lolita is the most girlish of fashions I know of! When I put on a dress, JSK, skirt, etc... I feel beautiful, cute and pretty. I don't want to feel or look "hot" or "sexy" because honesty if I ever dress to feel that way I'm not dressing for myself, but to gain the attention of some guy... and probably not a good one! Remember " Whatever you catch him with you have to keep him with." We all know over time no matter how many plastic surgeries you go through eventually it will be very apparent that your face doesn't stretch just right when changing expressions. Haha...

Aren't you afraid of what other people might think?
I might be if what I'm wearing comes off as "sleazy", that's going against my personal convictions as a Christian. But since lolita is a fairly modest style I don't have that problem. I'm not going to lie though... In the beginning I was pretty nervous about what my friends might think. But then I had to realize that if I wasn't being myself then my friends weren't really friends with me, but a person I was pretending to be. sadly to say there was a few that ditch me, but on the other hand they weren't that real of a friend to begin with. As for my "real friends" some liked it, some loved it, and others weren't too thrilled by it, but none the less they remained my friends and excepted me for who I was just as they always had.


Do I wear lolita all the time?
Sadly not. :[ There are times when it's not practical to wear a big puffy dress. Such as at work, cleaning at home, or sports. I still wear normal clothing and other styles sometimes even when I've had the chance to wear lolita just because I'm a lover of fashion and like to try new things, but lolita still remains my favorite of them all.


How long will I wear lolita?
I've excepted the fact that one day lolita may not make me happy anymore and my sense of style will change. But for now loads of ruffle, puffy skirts, and bows is what excites me, so that's what I'm going to continue to wear and fill my wardrobe with.

I love this post! And I love that you're a Christian as well. It's hard for me to find other lolitas that our Christian. That is actually why I fall in love with lolita. It was hard form me to find modest clothing that I loved and then I stumbled upon lolita fashion and I knew I was in love! I am following your blog now!

God Bless and rock those poofy skirts!

Thanks! Yeah... I've notice there aren't a whole lot of Christian lolitas, or conservatives to boot. though, it doesn't bug me much being a minority amongst a minority. All the same, it's good to know there's another Christian lady out there that enjoys similar fashions.
