I haven't seen one of these here before, but I found a cute hashtag I want to dump some posts from. Feel free to post any lolita-related twitter things you'd like here too!

着たい服がある (I have clothes I want to wear) is the name of a currently running manga about a tall, shy girl who "isn't cute" and doesn't fit the image of a lolita, but who wears the fashion anyway and gets closer to the people around her through it. The title is also being used as a hashtag by Japanese lolitas to post about how much they love the fashion even if they're not ideal lolitas either. A lot of the posts are very heartwarming and pretty so I thought I'd share summaries of them here.

I needed this thread.

I think it’s the Physical Drop nurse OP.
Thanks for posting and translating these. They are wonderful and have really brightened my day.
It's so refreshing and nice to see that japanese lolitas essentially have the same thoughts.
This is so wholesome!
This girl looks familiar, was she featured in GLB or KERA before?
Hey OP, as a request could you include the original Japanese texts as well?
This is a wonderful thread. Thank you OP!
Shit, I sorry. I pulled an all nighter right before I started posting this thread, and I fell asleep. Going to start back up now

Sure thing, anon! I originally meant to do that anyway, but got lazy too quickly. If you'd be willing to give actual translations as opposed to my shitty Google Translate that would be really cool!

I'm glad we're all enjoying this! I kind of wish we had a similar hashtag to use in English, haha. #ihaveclothesiwanttowear is just too damn long.

Not sure what this means, was posted by the same person though. It's something like
>As a kid my mom dressed me in clothes with ribbon and lace.
>After that, it was only cool to wear trousers.
>When I became a college student and didn't have a uniform anymore, I started to wonder what I wanted to wear.
> I went back to the world of ribbon and lace.
> I decided to wear whatever I wanted to wear, even though I quit Lolita eventually when I thought it didn't suit me anymore.

I could be misunderstanding, but is this some Negative Nancy saying:
>lol you shouldn't wear cute stuff if it doesn't suit you
>I like cute stuff too, but I'm not going to wear it until I change myself to be cuter
> my friends agree too
There was no pic

『#着たい服がある 』を読んで思ったのですけれど、何故“第三者から見た似合う服or好きだけど似合わない服”の二択になってしまうので御座いましょうね?





If that is indeed what she's saying, wow fuck that noise. There are many more people posting in the hashtag who disagree with her, she can take her attitude and go. Maybe if she actually gave it a shot and wore Lolita, she'd feel happier about herself!
I seem to have hit the end of the hashtag. There are some more out there jfash looks that I didn't post because they weren't Lolita, should I post those too? They're pretty neat too, I just didn't know if people would be interested.

I think the idea there is just that she looks more grown up? Kind of like Soft Lolita or what we'd call Otome
Please share the other J Fashion tweets! I think it’s cool that this manga speaks to so many peoples hearts.
This is the most god damn wholesome thing I’ve ever seen. Thanks for sharing, OP.
Thank you so much for posting and translating these. So wholesome and heartwarming, I feel like crying.

Society deems you too old for frills and bows by the time you're 12, that's the point of alt fashion, wearing whatever you like despite what society may think.

oh god i need details on this
I am 38 and I still wear lolita. Don't give a shit what people think. If you love it, do it as long as it's not hurting anyone else.
This really made my day.
I am love seeing people who feel stronger in their frils, too. It is a little to fun seeing this echoed over seas.
This is nice to hear, anon. I'm going to be 35 this year and I still love lolita. Lolitas in their 30s high five!
