Now we're back to the beginning

~ Regina Spektor - The Call

London: "Just because everything's changing, doesn't mean it's never been like this before."

What is Lolita?
Lolita is a fashion style and subculture originated in Japan. This this is based on the Victorian-area clothing which you may clearly see if you compare them. This fashion style started in the late 1970's, but nobody know who has started Lolita or nobody exactly knows where the name comes from, but the meaning of the word is 'little girl'. The fun part in my opinion is that people started wearing it and designer were inspired but wearers. The popularity of Lolita was rising thanks to feminized Visual Kei bands in 2000. Lolita isn't a costume and nor it has to do with cosplay. Lolita is now internationalizing, but in Belgium it is not often seen. People thought this fashion was also created against the growing exposure of the body and skin in modern society, so they started to dress themselves cute and elegant rather than sexy!

The dress I got is from ''. I think the dress looks amazing with the detailed print, the lace and ruffles. It's said that lolita dress should have a knee-length, and mine obviously isn't, though I do not mind. I'm 1.69 meter tall and most dresses are made for smaller people, which is why the length is a little on the short site according to lolita, but I think it's still adorable! We have chosen THIS dress because we adored the elegant appearance it had. The sizes are like they say, but I'll suggest if you doubt to take a size larger especially when you want to fit a blouse underneath it, but besides that I really recommend costume size, because you can give the exact measurements and you can ask to make the dress a little longer because you are taller. I definitely would do that next time ^-^ I must say I'm very happy with the dress and the quality is excellent. The wig I'm wearing is also from Honestly, I've never been so satisfied with a wig. I did think it was my own hair. Another positive thing is that there comes a wig-cap with it as well!
One thing I need to warn you about though. Because my package was coming overseas, I had to pay an extra 35 euros and had to wait one and a half week extra for the package to arrive because of the customs. Overall, I'm very satisfied!
