Haven't had one of these in a while now, have we?
lets get some questions goingwhat's your most worn main piece?what's your least favorite aspect of old school?raschel vs cotton lace?how long have you been wearing old schoo?
>>10795382Where are all the posters at? I'll start and dump some images afterwards>what's your most worn main piece?Picrel, since I wear it both as an OP and a coat. It's so sturdy and comfy!>what's your least favorite aspect of old school?Definitely the sizing. Japanese women used to be more petite and brands less size-inclusive, so you often see 58cm waist skirts and 78cm bust OPs that would only fit a small percentage of short and slender women. Also, how popular it's gotten in recent years - the old school boom definitely affected the prices. On the other hand, there's more fresh content, new old school inspired releases, and older pieces circulating on the second hand market.>raschel vs cotton lace?That's like asking who my favorite child is. I love both, but I'll say cotton just because I still can't get over how Meta's cross raschel lace feels against the skin. Protip - avoid it like the plague if you have sensory issues.>how long have you been wearing old school?Going on 5 years now, I've never worn anything outside of old school.
What happened to this girl, Caroline, from the Oregon community? She posted a lot on EGL livejournal back around 2007. She was one of the original "fatty-chan"s and I have been curious what happened to her after Livejournal.
>>10796897the good old days when this was considered abnormal. now 200 lb whales are running amok and everyone just accepts it
>>10795382>what's your most worn main piece?A meta gobelin JSK>what's your least favorite aspect of old school?Also have to say echo another anon in saying sizing. I'm already underweight and very slim, yet I still struggle to fit into some of my garments comfortably. I would probably have to be downright skeletal to achieve a comfortable fit. At first I was surprised this sizing was ever common, especially because the girls look quite average-sized in old-school snaps. I realize now that even a couple inches height difference plays a huge role in fit.>raschel vs cotton lace?It really just depends on how it's used.>how long have you been wearing old school?Pretty much since I started wearing lolita. It took me a while to warm up to the aesthetic, but now it's my absolute favorite. So much of the appeal hinges on quality, which in lacking in too many brands these days. A bonus is that it's also generally most far-removed style from the comprehension of normies and tik-tok itas.
Presenting irrefutable proof that lolitas are instinctively drawn to trees. Treelitas are real.
>>10796936Presentation over, hopefully this was an eye-opening experience for some.I'll be back with more oddly specific image dumps, if someone does enjoy this. I'd also like to request some coords with maxi/tea length skirts.
>>10796938this makes it look like trees are recharging stations for old school lolitas.
>>10796935that shiro coord on a dirty tree branch? i'd be worried about walking around with a big dirty patch on my ass for the rest of the day
Anyone buy this skirt (or others) from MAM, or have any better pictures of it? How's the quality compared to oldschool BABY or Meta?
>>10796977she's probably sitting on a cloth. it's common to do that when doing outdoor fashion shoots.
>>10795382My least favorite aspect of old school is everyone getting into it lolThis is a "who's gonna grab the oldest piece ?" battle
>>10795382>what's your most worn main piece?Sailor OP by meta, not because it's my favorite but because it's by far the easiest and most comfortable to wear (especially in weather like this) >what's your least favorite aspect of old school?Thirding sizing and how hard it can be to find lately! Seems like due to the popularity a lot of it almost always gets snatched up, I have pretty good luck getting old school innocent world though (which tends to have a wider range in terms of size anyway) raschel vs cotton lace?Both are nice but I like cotton lace best!>how long have you been wearing old school?Shortly after I got into lolita (started with moitie pieces), so around 2 years now?
>>10795382>what's your most worn main piece?karami jsk, it's perfect for the hot weather where I live and so comfy. Biscuit print sleeveless OP is a close second>what's your least favorite aspect of old school?definitely how brutal the secondhand market is, I specifically want that one japanese scalper who posts everything on fril marked up to go away>raschel vs cotton lace?Cotton lace 100%>how long have you been wearing old school?only about a year! It's the only lolita syle I've ever worn too
Why did Demonia do this to us? I just want to buy a replacement for my bubble toe clown shoes
>>10797384What happened to your old pair nonny? Is it anything fixable?
>>10796984I had this skirt in black x white and wasnt a fan. It's not bad quality, but it has too new of a feel to work for old school imo.
