Any advice on how not to look like I escaped from a mormon commune while wearing classic? I’ve been told I have a very “wholesome and midwestern” appearance, and while I look great in sweet and gothic, whenever I wear classic I just look very religious and confused
>>
>>10195828
Without an idea of how you look I’d say maybe try bigger hair/headpieces?

>>10195828
Don't be cheap and invest in brand items and good accessories?

Thanks, that actually may help a ton. If post a pic but the issue is my face and Id block that out so... yeah.

>>10195895
Thanks, but nearly everything I own is brand. That’s not really the issue.

>>10195828
Wear blush? Or make up in general? Just enough to make it obvious that you are wearing make up on your face.

>>10196048
I wear a lot of himekaji, so while I obviously won’t go full gal maybe it would make sense to lean a bit into that?

I'm usually not a fan of plaid but there's something about the ruggedness of plaid in contrast with the elegance of the blouse that I find extremely novel. When I saw it was plaid I thought I wouldn't be spending any more money this month. Fuck.
>>
>>10195828

Maybe take a look at how brands style their western models?

As someone with thin hair who would look like a tired greasy haired ball if I didn't style my hair, I find that giving it volume is very much key to amping my style. In addition to >>10196048, maybe also consider short falsies and more obvious eye makeup.

>>10196389

Moving onto classic jewelry, does anyone have anything like Schwarz Schmetterling? I love their stuff but they seem to have only a few items in stock these days.

Anyone else love the dresses without shirring? They make me feel especially small and dainty, especially in summerwear.
>>
>>10198891
Shirring looks ugly and the bunching gets uncomfortable when it's hot. I'd much rather brands make sack dresses with waist ties/ribbons if they want to cater to larger sizes.
>>
>>10198891
aesthetically yes,they are a blessing for the eye, practically, nope. I need the shirring so my ribs can move around when breathing.

This model and weird background doesn't make me want to buy it
>>
>>10198891
Unless it's a fitted dress with corset lacing no. I like how shirring helps distribute how fabric bunches up. I'm not about that constant adjusting life and unless I'm wearing a vest or corset (like Excentrique) I always feel like I have to distribute how the fabric sits, especially with a belt or waist ties.

>>
>>10198891

To be perfectly honest, I don't usually notice except I wore an ill fitting FINT dress the other day with some wonky shirring, and wow, that was an ill fitting dress. I suppose it depends on how well the shirring is in the back. I usually don't mind either I guess.

I'm really enjoying the classic revival in Japan desu
>>
I recently pre ordered the new Violet Fane dress, The Charmin Town, but I've never worn classic before, just sweet. Can anyone help in terms of how I could style it? I have a blouse from Lady Sloth ordered (the cotton crop top in ivory) and I have high heeled brown brogues and I'm thinking ivory tights. I'm unsure about the rest especially headwear.
>>
>>10208895

Coord help thread might be more helpful >>10194466, especially if you take the effort to feed them a collage or two.

Personally I'd just coord the dress sweet rather than buy a whole seperate outfit. The cut is pretty simple and the print is colourful so it looks easy to coord. For headwear you can either match it to your bag+shoes, or it shouldn't be hard to find a matching ribbon to the belt that you can whip into a hair bow or beret pin.

Did anyone else get the Afternoon Lady Blouse? I just received mine and it's really translucent. Are there any alternatives to wearing an undershirt?
>>
>>10210505
You don't need an undershirt if it's under a jsk but otherwise it's pretty necessary. I recommend Uniqlo airism, most Japanese girls wear them as default under every garment.
>>
>>10199275
Big ribcage, wide shoulders and very long legs here. I look like an ageplayer in sack dresses and to this day have never found a dress without shirring that fit my back, so no thanks. But I do agree there's an elegance to a nice fitted dress. One day I will find a solid piece I can alter,even if it will lower resale value.

You're a better person than me, anon. I couldn't quite see how that last Sailor OP could fit in my wardrobe so I abstained. I did buy $500 worth of plaid though, so stay tuned for that glory come fall.

My somewhat major regret is that I didn't buy any of the Merry Lou OPs from MM when they did the release. I should have gone for the green.

I really hope they're ok.

Which colourway?

Pink colorway. This was two years ago though, and from what I know they only had a few left at that point. It's still worth it to shoot them an email though I think.
>>
>>10228195
It's seen as gaudy and not cute in a Japanese-kawaii way. They use foreign models all the time so Japanese girls feel it is more suited to elegant/foreign looking/sexy types. Also they don't like the lazy clip art and painting prints and the relatively simple designs for near 40,000 yen (same as the Western lolita community). The sizing is also too big, especially size 2 and there's not much shirring or corset lacing on their stuff compared to other brands. Japan is also pretty conservative in some ways and jetj uses lots of art with exposed breasts.
>>
>>10227940
Aaaa I can't wait! And I hope this series sells well enough to send a message to VM's designers.
>>
>>10195719
My favorite things about the Classic style are first that it's pretty easy to tone down both a sweet and a gothic main piece with elements of classic styling so it's really the most versatile style. Second, that it's the easiest to wear most often in the everyday without going casual. And lastly, I think it's the most beautiful style for the majority of people staying in the fashion past 30 unless they are truly more gothic.

Not totally related, but is there any photographic proof of VM's giant coffins from their fundraiser around? I know there were only a couple of people who contributed that much and they may not be on social media, but I would love to see what they did with them if anyone has any sources.

When did classic die? Do you think we'll ever get a classic renaissance?
>>
>>10257715
There was maybe only 1 or 2 people who bought the big ones so no.
>>
>>10258244
Classic has always been lower tier below sweet. There was that moment for OTT classic from like 2013-2016 with jetj painting prints and huge headwear, but most of those coords and images were for special events and people reverted to their regular sweet wardrobe for other meets. Classic just isn't as forgiving in size and it's not flashy enough for most lolitas, especially noobs, to feel worth the price.
>>
>>10258255
> it's not flashy enough for most lolitas, especially noobs, to feel worth the price.
Nayrt but I think you're right. Also many western lolitas tend to get into the fashion through weebshit like anime and visual kei, and classic is probably the furtherest from that of all the sub styles, so it doesn't get as many from that demographic. It's also easier to make normie passing classic coords for everyday than it is sweet or gothic so I imagine older/more seasoned lolitas who have big wardrobes and want to wear it daily are more attracted to the style than fresh blood, who only buy one or two coords for meetups.

Like you said, sizing is also a factor but it seems a lot of the really diehard VM/MM fans who hang on every release are thin Japanese women who have probably been supporting the brand for a long time. They're the kinds of girls who have those huge meetups wearing one series. I think keeping those kinds of fans including us is more important and more likely than a 'classic renaissance' since classic was never really the big flavour of the month style like ott sweet was, it's always been sorta stagnant besides a few trendy moments like the ott jetj era. Right now moitie gothic is the big thing getting all the hype, but I don't see classic as it is ever getting that kind of attention unless another flashy brand or trend comes along to attract new blood. Even if it does get popular the trends will eventually change and it will die again. Might as well stay undead.

>>
>>10263569
Can anyone shoop this in the green colour way? I can’t decide and it’s harder when there’s no picture to go off

Also does Victorian maiden need payment up front for reservations, or when it’s actually released?
>>
>>10263915
If you buy from WW they will charge upfront for the items and later on they will charge for the shipping. AtePie has free shipping so you just pay the once upfront and they notify you once it's shipped. I'm not sure how if works if you buy from VM using an SS though.
>>
>>10263928
I’ve bought from Tenshi in the past and she asked for a deposit up front and final payment when the items arrive

I haven't kept up with the lolita scene at all the past couple years, do Innocent World recent releases still give awful boobloaf to anyone over a b cup? Are the bodices still pretty much tube shaped?
>>
>>10274661
Their sizes are so much bigger now, I used to boobloaf in them but now I'm just swimming in them instead
>>
>>10274665
I really think they should bring back size S. The M is really big and they tend not to have corset lacing on the OPs to make them smaller
>>
>>10274665
>>10274661

Their size M hasn’t really changed much on quite a lot of stuff, however, they do offer more often now size L, or pieces with a wider range of measurements. I can’t speak for their one-pieces though.
>>
>>10274315
Would it be a dick move to reserve just the socks? I feel like I would be bothering them with my cheap-ass purchase.
>>
>>10274794
I’ve been thinking the same, but more wondering is it worth the shipping for just socks
>>
>>10274844
I've only purchased from IW when they had the free shipping offer recently, so I don't know if the cost of shipping would be worth it either.

I'd at least get a pair in each color since it looks like a good basic to have. I wish they came in white. Basic white OTKs seem to sell out first.

The gloves look appealing too, but it's still 88°F/31°C where I live, so that would be a silly purchase for me.
