I don’t know how much you followers know about Lolitas – as a fashion statement, more than about the book where the story came from.
Lolita-girls are basically …dolls; they dress like dolls, wear wigs in pastel colours & create outfits that range from baby clothing to renaissance maids to gothic princesses. I have always felt a sort of fascination for this world, without ever taking part in it; I always felt that my size was an impossible match with this world of baby girls & fairies…but in fact, it is not, as we’ll see!
Since I’ve started noticing more & more plus size styles, I also found out that there are plus size lolitas too, with the complete trousseau: plus size dresses, underwear (very important & specific, as one lolita friend cared to highlight once!), tights, etc. – too bad I was too old when I found out! but no biggie, I keep on watching & admiring my rainbow friends like they’re the barbie dolls I used to have (& wanted to be). I am no expert whatsoever, of course…but I’ve seen enough, & loved enough, to be able to show & share.
So I decided it was about time to share some of my precious finds with you, too… mainly because I love this kind of style; & secondly, because there may be a wanna-be-plus-size-lolita somewhere around here, watching & dreaming … so hello! I’m talking to you! here’s a post of pictures, ideas, & resources you can use…but then I’ll want to see pics I warn you!!
♥ the first Lolita I want to introduce you to, it’s probably my fave of the last period of time … I discovered her blog maybe a couple of years ago, & never let her go since: Georgina of Cupcake’s Clothes! she is awesome: cuteness in a jar, basically. She has pink hair & adorable clothes, & all her pictures are full of nice little pretty details. She also runs an e-shop with handmade things & her spare wardrobe.
♥ second (to none!) is another sweet sweet girl …this time is one of my followers (as much as I am one of hers!!) & her name is Miria of Plus Kawaii. The name says it all, right? but Miria is not only a Lolita; she is also a fashion blogger in general, & on her blog you’ll find ideas on everyday looks. But since we’re talking about Lolita fashion, let me just show one of her looks, which I find terribly adorable (it is a Halloween costume, in reality – but I love it so much that I had to post it! you can go & see more of her directly on her blog).
♥ third…this one is a classic, too: Beck Poppins, on Tumblr! she dresses up a lot, so to say – & many times she looks like a lolita as well. She is big & regal, & hugely creative. Love her!
♥ lastly, I really really want to you meet one of my latest finds…Miriam Wagner & her LookBook! she looks absolutely cute, with her coloured hair & kawaii outfits! I found her page no more than two weeks ago, but I’m totally into it! By the way, I found her through another pretty lolita: PastelKawaii Barbie, whom I love, but still think she should smile more & more “convincingly” – girl, you’ve got it all, why don’t you give us a lolita smile? come on!
** for all of you who want to know more about lolita style, I sincerely recommend you watch a movie called Kamikaze Girls. it’s adorable, funny, & one of the protagonists is an absolute Lolita! then, you can go & see more plus size lolitas right here, on my tumblr. **
