I thought it might be neat to try and maybe come up with a fun theme each week to dress up for :)
It's not necessary to participate, but I thought it might just be a fun idea.
This weekend is Gothic Lolita. (or just plain lolita, if you'd like!)
What's lolita you say?
Lolita fashion is a fashion subculture originating in Japan that is primarily influenced by Victorian clothing as well as costumes from the Rococo period. Lolita has made this into a unique fashion by adding gothic and original design elements to the look. From this, Lolita fashion has evolved into several different sub styles and has created a devoted subculture in Japan. The Lolita look (for females) consists primarily of a knee length skirt or dress, head-dress, blouse, petticoat, knee high socks or stockings and rocking horse or high heel/platform shoes. Gothic Lolita (known in Japan as gosurori, "goth-loli") is a mixture of the Gothic and Lolita fashion. The outfits themselves usually use dark color schemes like black, dark blues and purples; often with accents of white. As with western gothic subculture, cross jewelry and other religious symbols are also used to accessorize the gothic Lolita look. Other accessories, like bags and purses, are often in uncommon shapes like bats, coffins, and crucifixes.
