This is an easy question to answer! The thing I love best is the variety of substyles I can pull off with my wardrobe.
At first, when I discovered lolita fashion, I fell in love with the gothic substyle. However, I had difficulty finding gothic lolita pieces that I could afford. I found cute secondhand sweet lolita at affordable prices (Bodyline, handmade, taobao, and eventually, affordable secondhand brand too)… And unexpectedly, I got into sweet lolita. It was too tempting to pass up the great deals (especially the adorable pieces I snagged from Mbok!). And I have always loved sweets… so sweets-themed things stole my heart. Over time, I was able to acquire some pieces that worked well for gothic lolita, and I did ponder leaving sweet. I thought about it… If I sold off my sweet lolita pieces, then I would have more money to spend on gothic lolita, right? But… I didn’t want to let go of sweet. I might leave it eventually, but for now, I want to keep sweet lolita as part of my wardrobe. And honestly: is there any reason why I should choose one substyle over another? Nope!
My wardrobe is kind of all over the place, which can be annoying at times (like when I’m looking for a certain barrette or necklace but can’t find it because there’s too many all in the same box…). All in all though, I am happy to have the variety of styles in my wardrobe. I can wear different lolita styles and have fun dressing them up (OTT) or down (casual).
