10 Things I Hate In Lolita (30 Days of Lolita Day 3)

March 04, 2019

  1. Heat. Hell. No.
  2. It's not always comfortable. I want to wear lolita all the time. I also want to be comfortable getting work done. Go figure.
  3. I don't get to wear it every day, for reasons. Reasons like, I work with dogs on a daily basis and that's just not going to happen.
  4. The price tag. Really, lolita is not that expensive. Until it is, and you want a dress that's the same price as your monthly rent. Ouch. Thank the gods for secondhand sales.
  5. Sizing is weird, sometimes. Listen, burando, I'm not a twelve-year-old boy. I have boobs and an ass and sometimes I have a serious love-hate relationship with you. Cut that shit out. I love you so much, though.
  6. Gothic isn't that popular right now. I mean, I still see it around. I do. But I have to filter through a looooooot of (perfectly lovely but not my style) sweet coordinates to find them. 
  7. Scalpers. I mean, come on. I'm not paying 110% the price of the new dress for one with armpit stains on it. I'm...I'm not paying anything for something with armpit stains on it.
  8. Weebs. I'm not sorry.
  9. People calling things lolita that just aren't lolita. Girl your pastel goth outfit is not lolita please cancel this. 
  10. Caring for these frilly monsters. I hate having to research how to clean each individual dress, deal with dry cleaning, sorting, maintenance, ugh.
