Okay, I know I did this kind of backwards. I should have made a post about the japanese fashion called Lolita at the beginning, but better late than never right? ^^v

And like every Lolita has to say: Lolita has nothing to do with the story with the same name written by Vladimir Nabokov. There is nothing sexual about this fashion. period.
Lolita or Gothic Lolita is a Japanese fashion, inspired by Victorian clothing as well as the Rococo period.
What I think is so great about this fashion is that it's so versatile, Gothic Lolita, Casual Lolita, Sweet Lolita, Classic Lolita, as you can hear there are many different styles of Lolita. (I'm sorry but I won't write down all of them, and I won't explain them all.) I think that's why it's so popular, beacuse no matter what taste you have, you can probably find some lolita style that fits you and your uniqe personality. ^^

Some Lolita brands:
Baby the stars shine bright: http://www.babyssb.co.jp/
Innocent World: http://innocent-w.jp/
Angelic Pretty: http://angelicpretty.jp-stores.com/
Metamorphose: http://www.metamorphose.gr.jp/english/

"Lolita offbrand":
Bodyline: http://www.bodyline.co.jp/bodyline/
I don't know what to call this, It's Bodyline, it's not concidered a Lolita Brand however, since they tend to do replicas of some of the brands clothes, bags and so on. And they have a rumour of having bad quality clothes. But, even people who are really against Bodyline have admitted that their quality really have improved.
And as far as I'm concerned, I like Bodyline, it's way cheaper, so for a person like myself, who doesn't get alot of money, who can't afford a brand dress, can buy more clothes that are wearable, actually really great some of them. I mean for the money of One Brand dress, you can get atleast 4 Bodyline dresses. I can't see the badness in that. And I belive that Bodyline dresses are better to have when you want to be a fulltime Lolita, a daily Lolita. Sometimes you just can't wear an expensive brand dress, or you won't because you don't want it to get stained or broken in any way.
I'm not saying I don't like brand, I love brand clothes, but I really enjoy Bodyline as well, they put more meat on my closet bones, if you get my point. ^^v

So to everyone who's new to the lolita fashion but thinks it's the right fashion for you:
Look for information, look at photos, try to understand the fashion, when you've done that, don't be afraid to do your own thing of it. Don't think of the information as rules, think of it as guidelines.

Good luck!
