It's not a strictly lolita blog, I wanted it to be a general personal fashion blog, but what the hell.
Here it is. My top 5 lolita pet peeves. They're not in any particular order other than the order of them coming to my mind.
1. Blouseless coordinates
Some dresses look great without a blouse, especially those with wider straps, like Princess Drop.
2. Heavy boots with sweet dresses
I like contrasts. I really do. I wear fur boots with lacy skirts. But there are some limits.
I'm afraid that these boots
I know that hair can be very difficult to style. Ah, I really know it well! My hair won't stay curly for more than an hour no matter what methods or hair products I use. I tried a curling iron, straightener, hot rollers and foam rollers. I bought the strongest styling products I could find. I just can't do it. But it's no excuse for leaving your hair dirty and completely unkempt. You don't need to have a hairstyle like a model but neat hair would be nice.
4. Sweet -> Classic
I understand that OTT sweet is now all the rage but does it mean we have to call the regular sweet lolitas classic now? An "old school" sweet lolita is still a sweet lolita. There's no need to call her classic just because she doesn't have a candy floss wig and a thousand hair clips in it.
5. Punk lolita done wrong
Punk lolita is the first lolita style I really fell in love with. I don't have much experience wearing it (I only have one outfit which I've never really worn out) but I do admire girls who dress this way and do it right. It's a difficult style actually. It's not easy to create an outfit that has spunk yet still looks lolita. It takes experience or just inborn skills. And wearing a studded belt with a sweet skirt definitely does not make an outfit punk.
I enjoyed writing this post. I think I might do a reverse thing tomorrow. "Top 5 things I love the most in lolita."
