I don't hate it necessarily, but I feel like platforms would have worked better instead of boots. Maybe ditch the gloves for bracelets too, or at least shorter gloves.

I actually found the opposite. I always look slimmer when I do a lot of exercise, and my waist ends up smaller. For one thing, when I exercise I crave junk less, so a good diet is easier to maintain. But also, when I did a lot of core exercises, my waist measurement went down by at at least 1 cm without losing any weight. Idk if that's just a fluke or what.

I feel like I could get to 115 but I'd have to work fairly hard to maintain it, and it's not even worth it at that point. I do kind of still have a waist (going by silhouette alone) bc some weight went to my hips, but it's not a particularly small waist by any means. I'll get to a happy place eventually lol.
> For me, as long as you don't need to modify or buy plus size to fit, you're fine
NAYRT and I know this is an old post but just because you can fit *into* a garment does not mean it fits properly. Most Japanese brand’s dresses hover somewhere around US XXS-S, and many of the people I see wearing them are closer to a US M-XL. It’s very common to see western lolitas wearing A-line dresses as empire waist dresses because their breasts take up the entire bodice. I get that brand sizing is inherently exclusive and that’s shitty, but just buy from a brand that makes clothes in your size or commission something that fits
I hate Chinese lolitas for making it impossible to find a-line skirts/jsks/ops.
2010s lolita needs to have its own name. Pre-2010s is old school typically and modern lolita is too different in material and silhouette from the 2010 era.
>More important than being the uniquest most ""creative"" snowflake there is, is to dress pleasantly and not like a kid playing dressup with mom's clothes.

so then no one should wear lolita then?

Hello there super spreader event.
The vaccines do work.If you're vaccinated you'll be fine.

Stop watching CNN.
It should be noted that in another post after that one they mention that "We will be requiring all attendees to wear proper face coverings, unless they show proof of vaccination."

So vaccination isn't required to attend, but is required if you want to go maskless.
IMO this might be the best way to handle things at this point. It forces the anti-vaxxers to mask up while still allowing them to attend, and gives vaccinated people the option whether or not they want to wear a mask.
So they're doing something to reduce the risk of transmission, while avoiding doing something that would significantly impact attendance. Well done, I say.
It may not be enough to satisfy the doomerfags that go around saying buzzwords like "super spreader", but those people are more than welcome to stay inside their homes for the next decade or so.

I do think that blogs and personal websites are about to have a renaissance as people get social media fatigue. I was admiring ita.toys today and pondering the idea of slapping together my own website
Isn't there templates available for neocities or some kind of base codes at least? idk since I've never used nc myself but I kinda doubt there's so many people with coding skills that good
oh yes i'm certain there's a lot of online resources for basic website templates. probably just a quick search away! but most of the sites there (at least the ones i've seen from lolitas) look pretty homegrown, using basic html and some css skills. a lot of people have basic web design skills from being past Neopets users, actually. just a weird tidbit.

i would recommend wordpress > blogspot. i think i've mentioned this before, but wordpress is open source and they don't lay claim to the content you post. if you want to own your information (as best as you can, at least) use wordpress. plus blogspot is a legacy platform and kind of on its way out.
I hate this so much. I've seen ones of people grinning so widely whilst talking about the people being brutally murdered... how do these people not see that it's tone deaf?
>tumblr is still my favorite social media site. It's just a bunch of women in their mid-twenties and late-twenties who never left, enthusiastically doing their thing.
Created a tumblr again just because of this comment anon, you better be right. I want to make some new connections, make friends with people and give and receive advice and concrit. Anywhere zoomer infested tends to have tons of drama or politics, and I don't want any of that.

I would make a wordpress again, but I don't know... I get kinda antsy talking one-on-one. Kind of just want to start out in an already established community and start building friendships there. Would go to discord but eh, discord is discord. Probably not anyone worth my while there.

add bangs, open the blazer, change the hat for maybe a maxipad headdress and this might be cute
pull up the socks, get rid of the cringey sailor moon sticker on the forehead, bam, a cute outfit
Agreed. I actually like the potential this has, its cute and just needs some fixing. I come to the ita thread for real disasters and this isn’t it
Also probably want to lose the fishnets.
This is a cute wearable outfit for travel. I’m sure she didn’t have the sticker on her head all day.

Where are you getting your information?
NTA, but you can see easily on her social media that she makes elite style clothing.

Though the "woke" information in this video is incorrect, and honestly she should be doing her own research instead of just going "oh thanks to (random social media person) for pointing out that ACTUALLY this is a slave dress appropriated by slave owners" when it was not. It was always worn by elite women. It's like a circular style. Wealthy women in the French colonies were mimicking the looser styles of dress on the mainland with lighter fabrics, then women in the mainland mimicked the dresses of the wealthy women in the colonies.

I think it's fine to acknowledge that luxuries in the past (and today) were inherently based or related to exploitation and slavery and similar concepts. But it's super clear that she's only doing this because of the Colonial Williamsburg "if you wear a chemise a la reine you should be paying reparations~~" social media backlash. Right down to 'she wore this at a fucking elite picnic to 'test it out' making it clear that the wokeness was added afterwards, and she doesn't practice what she's now preaching. Don't tell others that you must always reflect on the reality behind luxury clothing when you didn't do it until now.

And also, when you do discuss issues like that, you do your own damn research and don't just quote someone's instagram post based on BS.
Wow, thank you anon! I was missing a lot of bg/context.

Abby Cox: makes rage tear-filled video screaming HHHOOW DAAARE YOU calling out an all-white group visiting Colonial Williasmburg in historical clothing on Juneteenth, because it's "disrespectful and WRONG and goes against what WE, living history interpreters, are doing"

Also Abby Cox: Goes with 100% white women group to an exhibit about women's suffrage dressed in elite women's historical costuming, all the while not acknowledging in her post that the women's suffrage movement was filled with white supremacists and only guaranteed white women the vote

Gee, I wonder if her video and faux outrage was more about calling out Lauren from American Duchess because Lauren fired her from the company due to Abby spending more time on her personal Youtube channel than the company that was paying her? I wonder, I wonder.
Tbh…Both Abby and Christine are trash. Christine and her both will drift from side to side so they can promote themselves. Like Christine is actually really wealthy. She is a doctor or something of that nature. So her talking about oppression and other social issues make me laugh. Idk how she can consider herself a historical seamstress when all of her clothing is made via sewing machine. She then sells them at super high prices that cost more than an actual hand made piece. The embroidery I can understand using a modern machine for that but Christ…..

to be honest, i felt a bit unsatisfied. i knew i was ita, i couldn't afford all of the things i wanted because i was a kid. but beyond that i was so incredibly happy and i knew i'd be able to grow and keep getting better. my parents got me a BL jsk, some socks, a pair of shoes and a petti. I was over the moon, i even went to a meet looking like that. but they and i couldn't afford much more even when i got a job and had to help them, so i had to wait many years until i could get what i wanted.
someone has been vendettaposting about her in multiple threads on multiple websites, i really doubt it
I have a feeling it's selfposting bait to make cgl feel sorry for her. No way would a hater make a dumb post like >>10644623, it's way too obvious to be a vendetta, it was made so that cgl would think M.M has some crazy hater. And these shit momo baitposts only started up after the lc posts outing her as being insane. Shes just trying to manipulate our emotions about her.
People troll similarly for CC and meow tan all the time. Also, most of the lc thread is in support of her because it’s obvious there’s one or two people who have a vendetta and won’t shut up about it. You’re really just pulling stuff out of your ass, probably because you didn’t like her in the first place.

Idk how the Australian prelims were judged but it sounded like in the US the video was worth much more than the costume and this video is perfection. Also, what was the competition, maybe they just didn't have a lot of entries.

This blouse doesnt work with this low waisted skirt at all.

Same, a poor blouse choice

Nice to see a mini hat worn with OTT sweet ! It makes me feel nostalgic
nothing? who cares, people have scars from not self harming and they dont have to cover, why should people
no, pixie doesnt wear lolita anymore
Those don't even look particularly fresh they just look like keloid scaring. Also very odd to be accusing someone else of being bpd when you are the one talking about a stranger on a 4channel thread
