This week’s topic is…
Your First Lolita Item
So I will talk about my first TWO Lolita items (because I’m a rebel): the 1st thing I made, and my 1st brand item.
The first Lolita item I ever made was this OP
Despite some of it’s rocky design choices, I still really love it. I don’t wear it hardly anymore, but it holds a special place in my heart. I would love to do tiered circle ruffles again like this in a more country or classic style, but they take up SO MUCH FABRIC haha. Anyways, even though I still hadn’t met the wonderful North Carolitas when I first wore Lolita to Animazement, it was a fond memory and – luckily – not a complete embarrassment.
My first brand item was my Usakumya bag, which my college roommate gave me one year for my birthday. It was such a special gift, a sweet memory and an amazing item to receive. Even though it took me a moment to get over that fact that you pull back the bunny hood and unzip into the bear’s brains to open the bag, I still think that it is a very elegant and wonderful addition to coordinates. I sometimes think that stuff animal bags can be a bit creepy, but not this one…maybe because it was my first brand item.
