Sometimes I think about selling my entire OTT AP sweet lolita wardrobe to go full on moitie goth. I know this isn’t a new thought—but I work as an embalmer at a funeral home and sometimes I just be feeling more dark than pastel. Besides; I could actually wear motitie to work since it matches dress code... I know I can do both but...if I sell everything now I feel like I can have my dream goth wardrobe.
>>
Does anyone else feel a terrible sense of time moving by? I’m on the younger side in the Jfashion community, but I can’t help but feel anxious about growing older and having pressure to stop wearing it when I haven’t had the chance to try everything I have wanted to. I actually really love seeing older (especially those close to 40) Lolitas because of this because it gives me hope that I could possibly enjoy this for a couple of decades - but they often get reamed online
>>
nice to see you soup

Buying Moitie(especially good pieces) is a totally different game than buying AP
>>
>>10562218
don't do it anon, there's a pretty good chance you'll end up with nothing but money
>>
>>10562324
This. I've been wanting to get into gothic for years but the market is hella dry and the pieces that do come up are either ugly, expensive, or both.

You'd be allowed to wear lolita when embalming dead people?

>>
>>10562218
If you really want to sell the AP, now is the time. But buying older moitie is a lot harder than Ap, so hopefully you are into their current look and direction to start with. If you can fit into smaller stuff go for their skirts as they are cheaper but otherwise you are going after stuff that costs like 400-500 easily per piece.

My mother passed away last night due to pneumonia related to her cancer treatment and I have trouble processing it. Related bc she used to love when I’d bring my cosplays to her house to show her what I’d been working on.

Anon that sucks, I'm so sorry for your loss. Remember to take time for processing and it's OK to grieve in your own way. Look up Worden's "Tasks of Mourning" if you're feeling completely lost and don't know how to move forward. Don't hesitate to talk to someone if you need to.

I actually managed to get something from the recent CC moitie dump. Not the most coveted thing in it for sure, but given the constant error messages lately I’m a bit shocked

a few weeks ago I listed a dress on LM and mentioned in the description that I was interested in trading for another piece. no one ever messaged me about the piece that I was looking for and the dress eventually sold. but this afternoon the girl who had bought the dress from me messaged me to let me know that the piece i was looking for was listed somewhere else. the fact that this random girl who I don't even know personally would remember that and then think to let me know warms my heart in the cheesiest way. a lot of the time I really hate the community, but it's things like this that make me really want to try branching out from my lonelita tendencies
>>
I gave myself a mullet because i guess i wanted to try and see if I could do punk jfash. It looks cool, it wasn’t a very drastic mullet and i look pretty androgynous now.
Except i forgot about what clothes i actually have.
all my cute headbows just look weird. now I’m very sad and have to wait for my hair to grow out. I also am expecting a large order of swankiss and liz lisa to arrive lol.
Obviously i don’t think before i do things but yes, mullets do not work in otome at all
>>
>>10562680
to be honest consider teasing it out for more volume? older snaps have girls with pretty punk/andro hairstyles and honestly if it's styled nicely it can be pulled off
>>
>>10562682
Thats a good idea, yeah i think i could so something like teasing my hair or even picrel!! I just tried blowdrying/ teasing my hair real quick and it does look way better for bows.
They definitely did more punk things back then, its pretty cool! Thanks anon
>>
>>10562694
of course! i was immediately reminded of the creative short hairstyles in Fruits snaps. like the pigtails you showed or the mullet in picrel on the right. i think spiky pigtails and half up/half down would be cute too! godspeed nonny ^^
>>
>>10562680
mullets are hot rock it in lolita
>>
Daily lolitas, do you ever feel weird going out in full coords on and off? Is it ever a /process/, and other times it's just like getting dressed for the day? I'm a fucking autist and I feel like COVID made every outing either super exciting for me, or super exhausting and stressful. Wearing casual is one thing but some days it's too mentally draining to pull up to the grocery store in a whole fit.
>>
>>10562710
Wearing lolita is always a process even though it's what I do 90% of the time I go out in public. The other option is leggings and a baggy t-shirt and no makeup, hair brushing optional. I'm either a princess or a hobo.

Found out myanimelist.net got hacked back in November, of course they haven't had the decency to come out and notify that they were hacked.
- Emails (if signup wasn't done by any other ways)
- Usernames
- Creation date
- DOB on the account
- Raw data (could be PMs, IPs, or just your ratings)
No mention of passwords but it's probably a good time to change it to something new. Admins who don't have the balls to admit they got breached should eat their computer and work in a toll booth, if they can even get that job.

he's 13. my dad took him to the vet but he waited until it was Absolutely Necessary or whatever, he'd already gone into kidney failure at that point so he's not responding to anything the vet's given him. hoping somehow he'll pull through

My cat I had since I was 7 passed away a few years ago. I knew he was old and sick but there wasn't much indication that he was dying and we were giving him medication and since I lived out of home, I had mostly no idea of his condition.

Then one day I get a text from my little sister saying he's needs to be taken to the vet but nobody in the house wants to do it. I didn't realise that meant nobody wanted to take him to be put to sleep because nobody had the emotional fortitude.

I drove with my sister all the while cradling him like a baby. And only when the nurse said "Are we taking care of him today?" That I actually realised what they had booked. Within 10 minutes I had gone from thinking it was just a vet checkup to he was going to die. It was ultimately the right decision, he was in pain, he stopped looking after himself, he couldn't be the proud boy he wanted to be anymore.

But even now I still cry after 3 years, I miss him so muich. It's the only thing in my life that I genuinely feel sadness about. I never felt like I got to say a proper goodbye. There's so much I still regret. So please, spend as much time with them as possible before they go.

I have two cats now and I was really hesistant becasue it felt like I was replacing him and I would forget but pets are like people. You never forget them and they can't be replaced.

Ever since covid happened I started wearing lolita out less. I wash them every time I go out obviously but only in cool temperatures since I'm afraid that anything hotter than x degrees can fuck all of them up. My brain is so retarded thinking that the covid germs dont wash off even with detergent unless you wash clothes in high temperatures
>>
>>10563196
I wear lolita out during covid in a place with very high levels of community spread and just hang my clothes back up in my wardrobe when I get home. I only wash my clothes once every 5-6 wears or if they get noticeably dirty/smelly.

Oddly enough, I've told my (normie) friends this and asked if they thought it was gross and if I needed to clean them more. They all said that I'm not a smelly person and they didn't know lolita clothes could be washed at all, and concluded it's not gross. Even my mom who is a hypochondriac and hasn't left the house since July doesn't think me not washing them is gross or dangerous. So I think you're being especially paranoid.

I've been neglecting my EGL clothes for ages for a basically a combination of covid life disturbance, being excruciatingly busy with work / uni, & having an ana-chan relapse which I got myself into outpatient treatment for just a couple months ago. Recently had a flash of inspiration to get back into wearing cute clothes. Went through my wardrobe, thought about some coords, got excited again, even bought some new pieces.

Tried some stuff on today (including one of the new pieces) and none of it fits. It all hangs off me like a sad trash bag and looks awful. I try not to obsess over my body size/shape (or really think about it at all) so this was a major wake-up call as to how bad my physical condition is.

Recover not for thyself... recover for the burando.
>>
>>10563176
Sorry for your loss. I've lost 4 cats in my lifetime and it hurt every single time. My latest cat to pass died just a year ago from cancer and I still feel sad when I remember the day I said my final goodbye. Even to the end she was the sweetest girl. So I know the guilt you've felt and it sucks.

It's not fair that pets can't live as long as we do. But I keep on being a cat mama because they bring me so much joy and happy memories. I know I will have to say goodbye someday to my current babies but for now, I will enjoy my time with them.
>>
>>10562979
This happened to me a couple years ago. In the beginning, I kept expecting to hear her or see her sleeping or walking around and every time I realized she wasn't here anymore, it was devastating. But it does get easier with time. I still cry sometimes thinking about her, but I'm not in shock anymore.
>>
>>10562218
If you plan on ever selling our OTT angelic pretty, sell it now while the market is high. If you don’t end up finding the girls pieces you love, you can always buy the stuff back. Especially because there’s probably going to be a lot of rereleases this year driving the price down for pastel stuff. We already know a four and it’s only February. I wouldn’t put it past AP to re-release every major popular dress. That’s why at the fashion shows every six releases this season while there are usually nine or 10. CCC was one of the extras, I’m betting money on magic princess or milky planet or I’m betting money on magic princess, milky planet, dreamy baby room, & wonder cookie. But even with no re-releases in another year trends will have moved on. Sell now, make money.
And of course I’m saying this as someone who knows I should be selling because I think I’m on my way out with the fashion, but can’t bring myself to do it.
>>
>>10562680
I had a rock n roll mullet for awhile in lolita. Don’t know how short you cut it but if you can, use a head bow and bobby pins to smooth the sides back and you’ll look like you just have your hair tucked behind your ears. Not perfect because you’ve lost a lot of volume but it’s better than feeling forced to wear a wig
>>
>>10563506
What's your height/weight anon? I'm pretty petite and thin and as long as I tie the waist ties I think I look good in my burando
>>
>>10563537
Wonder cookie and magic princess? Really? I feel like sugar hearts and milky planet would be way more lilely. Dreamy baby room makes sense too.
>>
>>10563176
This is really sad that you feel that way, I’m sorry you had to go through that.

Sometimes I feel like somethings wrong with me. I just don’t get that attached to pets. But then sometimes I think people in 1st world countries are out of touch with the circle of life. Maybe it’s from growing up on a cattle farm where animals (including cats) regularly died. We had to both care for the animals and send them to be slaughtered and we ate them. I love my pets and cuddle with them every day and take good care of them but I don’t feel the same way when they die as when people die. To me it seems out of touch to get sad about a pet if you eat meat. By eating meat you are participating in the act of killing animals every day and they shouldn’t be that upset about your pet. Animals die and they’re not human, They’re not capable of thinking of things the way we do. People project this whole saga is of emotions and feelings onto their pets and ascribe complex thoughts to them that they just don’t have. Most of the things that people think give their cats or dogs personality are simply their pets acting in accordance with their instincts. Cats especially as they are both predator and prey animals, the mix of the two instincts makes for a quirky behavior. But that’s all it is, it’s not your cat having a fun personality. Your cat isn’t Zooey Deschanel. I don’t know, it doesn’t mean I don’t feel sympathy for people when they feel bad because when people are hurting that sucks and I have sympathy for them. I just don’t understand why they feel that way. I’m not autistic, I get sad when real humans die or are hurt, just not pets
>>
>>10563545
I said wonder cookie and magic princess because It seems like they’re doing re-releases of the earlier ott era, like 2009/2010 or the tail end like 2014-2016. It’s all the middle stuff from the peak like 2011-2013 that’s neglected. I dunno, just a general trend I’m kinda feeling. And I threw in dreamy baby room because they’ve teased it with a store exclusive release. And milky planet because there’s a petition and that’s always been a super requested and hyped print and there’s no way they’ll leave that money on the table. So that’s how I came up with those four prints.
>>
>>10563550
Sounds like it's your messed up mentality of human superiority that makes you unable to empathize.
>>
>>10563561
I dont think I’m superior, I just don’t understand how you can feel that strongly about an animal and then turn around and eat another animal. Like I said maybe it’s because I grew up in the industry of raising animals to be eaten
>>
>>10563565
The same way I don't give a shit about the lives of the meat animals I feed my cat and would be willing to kill a human being if they tried to hurt my cat. And the same way I don't care if Trump's entire family died (this would make me happy though, saying I don't care is inaccurate). I don't have a personal relationship those meat animals or that piece of shit trying to hurt my cat.

I don't really give much a shit about anything I don't have a personal connection to, but I have more of a connection to random cats than random people cause most people deserve to die.
>>
>>10563569
Even the 14 year old kid?
>>
>>10563569
Yeah that’s sociopathic to not care if people you don’t know die. That’s how genocides happen. Not saying you have to cry about it, but in my opinion that sort of self-centered mindset is why American culture is so fucked up. You should absolutely care about the well-being of others in our society
>>
>>10563550
>I’m not autistic

>>
>>10563579
Especially that piece of shit, get rid of him before he can do any damage.

>>10563580
I care to an extent. I think everyone should have access to socialized healthcare and universal basic income and a livable minimum wage.

But anyone who disagrees with UHC and UBI deserves to die since they're impeding everyone else's happiness and wellbeing. I should rephrase my initial statement. Most people don't deserve to die, but all conservatives deserve to die.
>>
>>10563580
Also to add to >>10563587 all antimaskers and COVID deniers/downplayers deserve to be tortured and then executed. See, I care. I always wear my mask and would love to beat the shit out of anyone who doesn't. Sadly I'm a smol bean so that wouldn't work out too well for me.

Idk my exact weight day-to-day because I'm working on breaking that particular ED compulsion, but my BMI is in the high 15s. I'm 5'2 and naturally slender at my healthy weight, but this ain't it. Pulling the waist ties tight just highlights the huge bunching of excess fabric in the back...
>>
>>10563589
Again, this lack of empathy and understanding that people are human and most humans are basically decent is why our politics are the way they are. By dehumanizing and ”othering” the other side they create a us/them situation where they don’t actually have to make any changes and the 1% can manipulate the system for their own benefit because you’re too busy seeing everything in black-and-white. We’re more worried about getting anyone on ”our” side elected then making sure the people we elect actually enact changes that we want. Something like 70% of the US population wants a more universal healthcare system yet we can’t get our politicians to do it. Conservatives aren’t bad people (most of them), their awful media scares them into these views, just like your liberal media scares you into thinking the conservatives are bogeyman. I’m not trying to equivocate, I think the conservative side is way way worse than the liberal side, but for the most part the individual people aren’t bad, just wrong and manipulated.

Yet i’m the one you guys think is autistic because I don’t need therapy after an animal dies. I care about the environment, I make most of my Charitable donations to animal and wildlife centric charities. This may be the farmer in me speaking, but I see humans as stewards of the earth, and because we fucked it up the animals cant live in it so it’s our responsibility to fix it for them and make it better. I don’t donate charities to help humans because they can to some extent help yourselves whereas animals cannot. But thinking half of the population is basically less than human and deserves to die is exactly how Nazis manipulated Germans into not caring about the concentration camps that killed 11 million people.

People get sad when pets die because you have an emotional connection to them.

I don't get sad about every human that has died. Only the ones I care about. I can eat meat and still be sad when my animal companion dies.

Cattle are given good lives. We make sure they are looked after, given food, water, medical treatment and an environment free from predators. In return for a vastly better life than their wild counterparts, we eat them.

>>10563587
>Everyone gets access to the system
>But nobody has to care about each other

So, why would anyone with money want to pay into this system?
>>
>>10563857
Because in a fact you already do by paying for health insurance, dummy. Health insurance works in the same principle, they have it down to a science (actuarial science, to be exact) so that most people pay more in than they will ever use. Universal healthcare would be the same thing except without fat cat corporate insurance execs skimming millions upon millions off the top

I've always cared into BIN Buttons instead of waiting to bid at a lower price. If the price feels right, why would I wait and potentially lose the piece??

But now a dream dress has poppel up, and it's auctions only. I'm already anxious. I've solemnly decided my max bid, but now we just wait. I'm not touching that until the final hours, but oh lord that stresses me out.

Part of me wishes other bidders will race it away and beyond my max so that I can just accept defeat already.

What makes you think that the government would be any more virtous than a corporation? The people in the government are not cut from a different fabric than those in corporations.

Americans have this very bizarre idea that literally any system anywhere can be imported in the US and it will work just as well as it does in the country they're importing it from. It's like taking the skeleton without any of the muscles which make the skeleton move and then just expecting the skeleton to work when you have muscles which don't belong in there.

Universal healthcare works in places like Germany, UK and nordic countries because of one specific thing that the US doesn't and has never had. Ethnic homogenity. Countries like the UK and Germany have an extremely long history and has caused people to coallese around a singular identity and singular community. Meaning that they all feel in someway responsible for the health of the community and therefore will pay into a system to help others and limit government corruption.

America doesn't have that. America is so individualistic with no singular identity that people will abuse the system. Because why would a black person want to pay into a system that whitey cracka uses? Because why would a white person pay into a system that a nigger uses? Because why would a Native American pay into a system that anybody but them uses? They wouldn't is the answer. They will abuse it to get what they want which will send it into a death spiral.

America has too many identities for universal anything to be efficient. For universal services you need a universal identity.

So I have some auctions ending later today and somebody who placed a bid on an item a few days ago just sent me a message telling me they don't have their own paypal account and asked if they could pay through a friend's paypal. I just... augh. Maybe if they had considerable good feedback as a buyer, but the account has less than 5 transactions. They're the top bidder on the auction at the moment and I'm concerned about what's going to happen if they win it. I wish people would ask questions like this BEFORE bidding.

White =/= identity.

Whites were broken up into North/South, Protestant/Catholic, Irish/German/English/Italian, Hispanic/Non-Hispanic.

Whiteness as a core identity didn't really exist. People would call themselves white in comparison to other races but between whites they would always draw a distinction "Fucking Irish/Italians/Germans, etc". Whereas you look at Germany, everyone is white and everyone considers themselves German. Yes there are minute difference within German cultures but ultimately their "German-ness" trumps all other identities.

The US isn't like that. American doesn't overcome local identity like African American, Sino-American, Italo-American, etc. And Americans are divided heavily by state lines when compared to countries like say Norway where there is a heavy centralised government less Svalbard of course.

This attitude works because America is rich and Europe is rich. Multiculturalism never works unless the community is rich because it makes more sense to simply tolerate others so make yourself wealthy. When the money runs out and dire straits occur, that's when people revert to their natural ways of ingroup preference. This is why poor communities and prisoners will automatically segregate themselves, they go with those who are most similar because they are the easiest to trust.

With a rich multicultural society, everyone is motivated by money, therefore you can trust many people because there's the mutual benefit of wealth. When there is no mutual benefit, what's the point? You're approaching someone less trustworthy

I would argue that tribalism works on a much smaller scale than we think it does. For most modern people, the "tribe" is relegated to the family (which is why certain recently founded organizations have the destruction of the family unit as one of their sinister goals). But why am I bothering with this here? This isn't /pol/ and most gulls live in a hypocritical duality where you happily participate in branding and consumerism one day and the next you're preaching Marxism and how evil and privileged whitey is. Do you really think you'll get to keep your frills in the new world order? Why don't you donate your burando money to BLM instead of participating in this frivolous hobby? You're all hypocrites.

Yes. Ideas are a product of the people. Not the other way around. It's not by chance America became the home of capitalism and individualism. America was created by people fleeing heavily regulated societies with strict social hierarchies. These people wanted to be valued as individuals not as part of some social group with little chance of social mobility. Add in the fact that America is a mixed nation of many different identities, most of the identities just wanted to do their own thing and be merited by what they could produce to the community, not their social status. This limited things like assimilation and coallesences behind a strong communal identity. Yes, everyone is American but America meant "Leave me alone and only judge me by my merits". Hence why Americans in general have been very apprehensive to centralised governments and why most universal programs don't work without abuse by the recipients.

Nobody cares about who's paying the bill on the other end, AKA their neighbour, because why would they care about their neighbour? The neighbour can look after themselves.

I wish I had a cosplay gf. It seems like there are so many cosplay girls that say they’re gay nowadays, that it shouldn’t be hard to find one. But every time I come across one they’re either taken, asexual, or they’re the type of bisexual that exclusively dates men, but they say they’re bi because they kind of think girls are cute sometimes.

I’ve even met nerdy girls off of dating apps who really liked my cosplays and expressed interest in cosplaying too. I encourage them to get into it, but so far they’ve always flaked out on me. I just want to play dress up with another cutie!!

I can second that. All the bi girls I've met up with basically only date men. It's really disappointing.

my wife started transitioning into a girl recently and I'm happy she found herself I guess but she is so different now and I'm afraid about what it means for our relationship. She doesn't want to be the breadwinner anymore but I'm disabled and we have a kid so...I don't know what the fuck I can do. we only got married because she said she was willing to care for me once I got too bad to work, and now that it's happening...it seems she is changing so much she might just leave me. she wants so many things that I just can't give her. she wants a boyfriend now and wants to dress like an ethot, she wants me to suddenly start buying her sex toys and I'm just wondering what the fuck happened? we'd been married for 7 fucking years before this and she never told me any of that. she literally only told me she was going to transition a week before she started HRT. I'm just so lost. I love her but I feel betrayed and confused and so worried for the future. I know I'll never find someone like her ever again but the person I fell in love with is disappearing. Plus on top of all this, she liked my fashion before her transition and now she gets mad if I even suggest that I'd like her to dress up with me. A really petty part of me wants to say I don't even want to be with a girl who doesn't wear jfashion. Idk. I'm just lost and angry and so so worried.

this post is stranger than fiction.

>husband decides he wants to be an ethot waifu now

being trans isn't even the core problem here, it's literally that your husband is a degenerate coomer who wants to be a little girl instead of taking care of his family. please tell me this is a joke. if it isn't, you need to start looking into some kind of remote work and figure out how to get you and your kid out of there. your husband is literally prizing his coombrained fantasies over you and your kid's wellbeing
>>
>>10564983
I'm bi but feel like girls have higher standards for looks and would think I'm ugly, so the only people who ever want to date me or be more than friends are men. I'm very happy with my current partner though and he's a guy, so I guess I am de facto straight unless he dumps me and I get cute enough for girls to like me back romantically.

I've always been intimidated by women and the one girl I thought I had a chance with was asexual until she found her soulmate so while I'm genuinely happy for her I'm also a dumbass who can't let go of that and feel somehow unworthy of women.

When I was severely mentally ill I went through a phase of "transgenderism" because I had it in my head that life would be easier as a girl. Then I realised, "Stop being a pussy." And that fixed everything, utilised my aggression and anger and patched myself right up.

Yet people keep telling me transgenderism is not a mental illness.

Yup anon I know

For the record she was besotted with another girl for a while but didn't have to want sex with her either. It was kind of weird.

Now she's with her partner though she's actually chill, started seeing a therapist, and stopped calling lolita fashion a fetish fashion so that's super nice.

So...like...where did all the rich people come from?

>where did all the rich people come from?
The overwhelming amount of them are the descendants of past notable royal or monarchal figures of the past, or in more recent history, descendants who left the aristocracy specifically to become a part of the merchant class you speak of - the transformation having taken place as feudal societies changed to early trading/merchant societies, birthing capitalism. As someone who speaks so highly of capitalism, you should already know the answer to that.

I wasn't so much suggesting that you were wrong as I was suggesting that it's funny of you to accuse someone of using a word they aren't familiar with when, on account of misspelling it, you don't seem familiar with it either.
>>
>>10565119
Lol got any proof for what you just said?

Most merchants were not descendents of nobility. Hence why they fucking hated each other.

>Left the aristocracy
Lol wut. Please give evidence that this happened on such a wide scale that it completely wipes out the notion of capitalist social mobility.

The change of aristocracy to merchant never took place on the scale you're implying. The aristocracy funded merchants at the beginning of the colonial/industrial periods but would not demote themselves to a merchant because that's social suicide.

If the nobility were so fucking enamoured with the merchant class, why was there any social struggle at all? Why did the merchants need to fucking claw at the system to get any sort of rights? Surely as part of the aristocracy they would just have those rights automatically?

Or was the struggle caused by the Novo Homo now bankrolling the state without any privileges or rights given to pay respect to their new power because the aristocracy didn't want to move away from a feudal system which preserved their birth-right?

Why would someone ever forgo a birth-right to be rich and respected vs actually working really hard for it?

What your saying is shit. Every single rich person today is descendent of nobility? Let me check Rockefeller's family history...nope no nobility.

They love playing at oppression and have no idea what real oppression looks like. It's sad. Leave them to their various mental illnesses and don't try talking politics and history, because then they short circuit and begin just parroting what they hear from their favorite influencers.

I thought it wasn't so good either...it really blindsided me. we share literally every thing else about our lives and this is something I can't believe she hid from me for so long. we have talked and she insists she hasn't changed and is just being more openly herself now. thankfully our finances are okay not great but definitely can't pay for therapy.

I don't split on people for the most part, when I do it's usually for like 30 minutes while they're asleep or busy and before they even see my crazy messages I've checked myself and realized I'm having an episode and apologized and hated myself for being nuts. it's only happened towards significant others and my parents and like one non-romantic friend. I technically don't check the "unstable relationships" box according to my therapist since I've maintained enough long-term relationships or something.

The Liz Lisa item that felt tight at the beginning of the semester now fits comfortably :)
I was worried that some of my bones were too wide but I guess it was just fat lol. Now that I know I can fit into these measurements I feel like there are so many more options out there!

How’d you lose weight? I could use a good 5-10 lbs gone

I'm so glad I left my asexual ex. He physically and emotionally abused me by not having sex with me, nor enjoying it like a decent human being when I finally persuaded him enough. I'm now with someone who actually loves me, and shows it in the most spiritual and romantic way possible, which is sex.

I always get worried about you when you disappear for too long truelovespiritsexanon, nice to see you're still enjoying expressing your true love in the most bestest way possible.

If you want a raise, get a different job. Not being callous, that's genuine advice.

I'm not an expert, but this is what helped me the most. I used the LoseIt app to track calories over the long term. You can see your deficit over a week so if you go over one day you can't get in the mindset of "oh I ruined everything and might as well give up". I also did April Han arm and leg videos every day (one of each, not her whole playlist lol). Recently added a chest exercise by Koboko Fitness and it's actually fun to do which makes it easier to do consistently.

This sounds really trite but it helped that I didn't hate myself this time around. It was more of the mindset of "I deserve to wear these cute clothes so I'm working for it" as opposed to "I hate my body and must punish it into submission".

Obviously there's no plan that works for absolutely everyone, but I hope this helped.

Thank you.

dw anon i get it! i've only barely started my first contract (i'm in consulting) but looking forward, pivoting and asking for higher pay is way better than waiting like 5 years and hoping for a raise

though i wouldn't have known this without other people having told me... my naive ass thought staying at the same place forever === guaranteed raise! === burando dollars. glad someone nipped that in the bud early
>>
>few years ago get into lolita as a teen, worked super hard to buy my first and only piece of burando
>so excited to have it, never got to wear it
>forced to sell dress and all my lolita stuff by abusive ex that i only got away from last year, he used the money for stupid shit for himself
>get back into lolita as an adult like a month ago, slowly start buying basics and stuff
>run into said dress on lacemarket and started bawling

i kind of want to buy it and wear it and be happy...prove something to my younger self. is that weird? i feel weird

It’s not, you’re just making it weird.

I think I have bad taste, whenever I post ppl to the good coords thread, it get accused of just being them selfposting and it makes me sad
>>
>>10565614
Are you the star wars fan? I kind a get it, that was a cute vintage looking shirt and really simple styling. It definitely is better real world fashion than lolita in the sense that lolitas tend to do too much. It’s just not good fashion to add 1 million bow clips to some thing to get your color balance “right” and western lolitas don’t get it. It’s why the Japanese are so much better at making coords because they don’t overthink it. They put together a Lolita outfit the same way you would put together a normie outfit. You just kind of go “this is what I want to wear today” and you kind of throw it together with what you have and you make it work. That’s real fashion, not the ridiculous over analysis that lolitas do. Not saying I think that girl is peak fashion, but people are too quick to condemn some thing just because someone didn’t go out and buy a piece to specifically match another piece and “work on” each coord

There’s always one picture that for whatever reason captures your imagination even if no one else gets it.

Just did my yearly web stalking of that person who was nice to me at a con nine years ago
May actually have been more than a year since last time now
Wonder if I should just dive deep in and do the stalking seriously, so far I've mostly just been checking an online profile.

Just so you know what you're getting into before you chug that shit, if you do survive theyll cut part of your intestine out and remove your destroyed esophagus and replace it with part of your stomach, which must be stitched in OVER the breast bone.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.labroots.com/trending/videos/10913/here-s-what-would-happen-if-you-swallowed-bleach/amp

Only continue if you really want to experience tasting your own intestine every time you belch and not being able to eat food like a normal person.

contributing to the never-ending talk about weight--i was looking through old coordinate pictures/random candids of when i was sub-100 and i looked like a gremlin. like, my body looked how you would expect, but my face thinned out so much that it just looked long and not cute at all. i'm surprised none of my friends said anything to me...

i've gained ~20 pounds and have maintained the weight over the past few years and i look so much cuter. granted most of the weight went to my chest/thighs/butt so it carries well, but every time i feel insecure i should just look back at those pics. idk, i just hope some of our insecure/ed friends on this board can recover someday too because i can speak from personal experience that thinner and thinner and thinner != prettier

life became so much more happy and vibrant when it stopped revolving around criticizing myself (and others! being hangry made me mean) and what food i ate. just want to remind anons not to let what people post here or anywhere negatively affect their body image 'cuz it's been really prevalent here this past week. ganbatte

I'm only you if you're also committing to the long and painful process of weight restoration and recovery anon. Then and only then we shall be kawaii together.

I'm lucky to have an experienced therapist who has a hard and fast rule about not engaging with anorexia thought patterns, and she's told me straight up there's little point starting my actual prescribed course of ED specific therapy until I've shown I can follow the basic meal plan and restoration guidelines. Which, fair, because being underweight gives you brain holes. But I'd so much rather be like, picking through the reason I'm compelled to use ED behaviours as opposed to actually stopping using the behavours.

>cgl related feel - also since not wearing the fashion for a while when I wear comfy pieces around the house or on errands I feel guilty about it because I've internalised too much of the /cgl/ attitude that dresses are display pieces ONLY and must never come into contact with the trappings of real life, lest they detract in value. Obviously I'm not engaging with that guilt because it's an insane way to think about my clothes, but it's there.

>Finally won my dream dress
>Seller stated it was in near perfect condition, no significant stains
>Dress comes, entire bodice is yellowed and faded. Blood(?) stains on random parts of the shoulders
>Decide it might be able to be saved with some intense cleaning
>Sees even the lace is almost white it's so discolored from sweat
>Been trying to clean it out of denial for several days, nothing getting better

Acceptance has finally sunk in that no matter how hard I try this dress is fucked. Back on the hunt for the dream dress I guess...

I struggle a lot with ADHD which has made it hard to make friends irl and in lolita fashion. I don't mean to be annoying but I have a hard time toning down my excitement and paying attention. Not retaining info about things I enjoy has made it hard to connect to others through discussion as well. Therapy has been helping me grow a thicker skin and find validation internally but I still feel incredibly lonely and self loathing.
>>
>>10565978
anon i hope you contact the seller and get at least a partial refund

I found out I was raped by my friend while I was blacked out. We're both guys.

Not sure how to process this. I feel surprisingly calm.

You’re in shock. Contact the police and report him.

He'll notice that shit right away, it'll make a fuckton of noise.
Hypothetically, if you wanted someone dead, you'd loosen the brake lines just enough so they'd pop when he hits the brakes hard. If you just wanted to ruin his day and wallet you'd undo the oil drain plug so the engine seizes up.

If you still like the dress you should get it and wear it. If it’s not really your style anymore there’s a risk it’ll just hang in your closet and be a painful reminder of shittier times

No, it was a JP seller.

I'm fucking tired of going into some threads to read some lolita thoughts just to see these threads completely derailed by these new idiotic trips and garbage. I just want to read lolita confessions, unpopular opinions about how stupid some trends are and some fashion news. I swear it wasn't this bad like a month or two ago.

same, jesus christ I just want to talk and read about the fashion, the attention whoring shit is so annoying.

Been working my ass off at work this month because I promised myself if I did a stellar job I'd get myself a dress I really wanted.
>Put my head down and really work this month.
>Spend 10 hours a day at the office.
>Dealing with lots of bs from our parent company.
>End up accidentally ignoring the the lolita sales sites.
>Miss APs Rose Tea Garden in the special color way go for $300 on Fril.

What in the fuck was the point of working so hard if I'm just going to miss a Dream Dress?

Take a fist full of multivitamins before you go to bed. For me, about one per drink keeps me either hangover free or with a functional headache. Fiber pills help with other side effects of heavy drinking too.

I wanted to start collecting photos and videos of old conventions, but I started to feel weird about having a huge folder of teenage girls on my computer. Maybe autism, maybe projection.

Gonna make sure I have some next time, along with some sugarless gatorade
