The Art of Fashion

I often get asked if Japanese Lolita fashion is 'wearable'. Other times I get told it makes us look too much like dolls, or princesses. To answer such a question, one must understand the connection between reality and imagination. In my head, when it comes to fashion, imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality. You see, we are dolls, we are princesses. This is as real as the pink frosting on the cupcake I had this morning for breakfast. Or did I?

“Have I gone mad?
I’m afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usually are.”

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”

“Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.”

So if someone tells you that any kind of fashion is not wearable,
simply tell them:

“I’m afraid I can’t explain myself, sir. Because I am not myself, you see?”

Thank you, Lewis Carroll, for the amazing work on Alice in Wonderland. His writings live with me everyday. He taught me it is okay to be slightly mad.
We are bold. We are strong. We are artists. We are introverts and extroverts. We are dreamers. We are rebels.
This is our reality and imagination.

    Ah!!! It’s so nice to see Midori-chan modeling!!! ((Her wig is fantastic!))

    Both of these outfits, while a bit too sweet for me, are absolutely adorable!! It’s nice to see Angelic Pretty tone down their styles, and that chocolate dress is wonderful! I love the red socks and shoes Mido-chan is wearing!! I think the accessories for both of these outfits can be used for so many different styles and types of outfits! For example, I can see the socks Deneice is wearing used for a professional setting, maybe paired with a cute flowy top and pencil skirt.

    OMG It’s so exciting to see Deneice and Midori modeling together!!~

    The outfits are beautiful and I REALLY like the hair accessory Deneice is wearing. Usually when I see hair accessories, especially when they match the print of the dress, it’s just the same print, or it’s the same as the accent color, but this headpiece really stood out to me because it incorporated the accent color, black with pearls, as well as part of the dress design, the back part. It really makes for a great headpiece in my opinion.

    I also really love the contrast between Midori’s outfit and her tights. It helps make for a more even distribution of color, making all the colors tie in very nicely! 😀 Fantastic photo shoot!

    I really like these new outfits from Angelic Pretty! I never quite got into the really pink and really sweet prints they did (I’m attracted to the darker and more toned down colors) but these dresses have a nice quality to them. I love the color combination Midori-chan is wearing – the rich red is very attractive.
