I LOVE looking at the fashion going "ooooo that's cool!" or "Oooo pretty!!" but I would never wear it. I'm not a skirt/dress person, I know I wear a lot of them for cosplay but to me - that's completely different. Wearing skirts/dresses in cosplay to me is just dressing up as a favourite character. Lolita on the other hand is a fashion so I wouldn't be able to wear it unless dared or something xD;

Still I can never resist looking at all the wonderful lolitas out there! The range of different types of lolita always amazes me, I'm a huge fan of Wa-loli especially. Kyaaa I just love it! I don't know why I love Wa-loli so much, I just think it's the coolest type out there! It's the one type of lolita I might consider wearing for an expo or something *_*

Brands... err... to be honest I don't know of any brands .__. *lolita n00b*

Angelic Pretty is so overloaded with cuteness! *_*
And I just checked out Bodyline, I've seen dresses from there that I never knew were branded lol! I have always loved this dress:

Lolita x3. Such a feast for the eyes! I really like Wa loli too. It's a lovely mixture of traditional Japanese and western fashion <3. So far the only lolita item I have are a pair of pink bloomers. ^o^

Hime lolita. <3 I'm into all types but I really don't like an overkill of frills. Unless it's on a petticoat, less is more. xD
And loli is so versatile that anyone can find a style that suits themselves. I wanna get some items sooon!

A while ago I saw a feature on 'Baby the Stars Shine Bright' on Youtube. But they're soo pricey!

The name 'Baby the Stars Shine Bright' always amuses me.

Burando doesn't really interest me. I think kodona look pretty awesome though.

I'm trying to build a lolita wardrobe, I have several off-brand dresses, a few individual items and a few accessories.
Including my already goth wardrobe, I have a mix of gothic, sweet, classic and aristocrat.
I'm starting t make some of my own stuff, especialy bloomers and peticoats;

I have just ordered a bodyline dress, my first proper piece of brand, I just hope that the supplier can get it (my local independent manga store can order some of their stuff in).

I just wish at all didn't cost so much.

If the order goes through, this one, from another source, I am partly getting it for a family reunion, I needed somthing a bit subdued compared to some of the other bits in my wardrobe.

Yeah, my favourite is Punk Lolita... Putumayo is amazing. I love them. xD

Other favourites? I've seen a few Mary Magdalene things that are just awesome. Not that I'd be able to afford close to £200 for a jacket... D:

Yikes burando talk.

That stuff sucks anyway... Way overpriced, just because it has some overly popular dude's name on it. But hey, if people will buy it someone will sell it. xD

To be fair, the overly popular dude IS the father of the entire fashion movement.

I'm well aware of that. But there are people who are "fathers" of great things... Doesn't stop them being more popular than they really deserve.
