Let’s see… There are quite a few un-Lolita things about me. For instance, the way I dress outside of Lolita… When I’m not wearing Lolita (which right now is most of the time, unfortunately), I’m usually wearing jeans (either skinny jeans or flared jeans) and a t-shirt. Usually with a sweatshirt on top, and if it’s cold, my poofy raspberry-red winter jacket. I also do not wear makeup unless I’m cosplaying or dressing in Lolita. Sometimes I dress in Lolita and skip the makeup because I’m feeling lazy. (Like today… I’m wearing zero makeup and I’m in a simple Lolita coord.) For shoes, I’m wearing sport sneakers 90% of the time because I have a foot problem (really flat feet and weak joints due to a genetic syndrome I was born with, so I need to wear orthotics everyday and occasionally I need to wear ankle braces). I also don’t really style my hair every day. I hastily comb and brush it, and sometimes if I have a bit of time to spare, I’ll clip a little bow in it or tie it back in a ponytail, but I don’t spend too much time with my hair. Maybe that’s why I love wearing wigs for Lolita? I’m not too fond of my real hair. I sometimes have good hair days, but those are rare!
I guess another un-Lolita thing about me that my friend pointed out is how much I love horror movies and gory writing. But I feel like this might fit into the realm of Guro Lolita very nicely~! >w< So in conclusion, the most un-Lolita thing about me is how I dress outside of Lolita.
To be honest, there are some things very Lolita-esque about me too: my undying love for desserts and sweets, my love for bows (all kinds of bows!), and my conservative style of normal dress (no cleavage, I wear leggings/tights if I’m wearing a non-Lolita skirt/dress, I only wear tank tops for exercise sometimes, but I usually wear a t-shirt).
I really hope to wear Lolita more often. For now, I’ll continue my goal of dressing in Lolita at least once a week. Thank you for reading!
