365 LLC Days 261 - 263: Of 2007 EGL Posts, Town Events, Ways Lolita Has Influenced You

September 18, 2018

I actually remember checking out that top posts pictures at some point when I finally joined LJ and went bouncing through the pages. I admittedly didn't join LJ till a little while after buying my first few pieces, but once I found it I lurked for a long time. I feel like Lolita fashion quickly became an addiction for me, once I had found the key to unlock my secretly frilly heart I wanted nothing else, I had to devour every bit of social media and join all the groups available.

We all know where I'm going to be when this happens. I do have a penchant for putting a bit of this delicious commodity into my teas from time to time. I have one that is from a small town in Spain that a friend brought back with them and it's probably one of my favorite I have. There are a few other festivals going on in the area but this one has my attention.

There are a lot of ways in which Lolita fashion has influenced me, both career wise and in daily life, and I'm certain that is the same for anyone who has worn the fashion for a few years. 

It has made me learn how to do more for my hair and different hairstyles, I used to do a simple braid or put it in a ponytail and call it a day. Along with hair and learning different hairstyles it has made me try to focus a little more on makeup, better habits and more styles, but also focus in the aftercare for skin. I don't like wearing make up, if I'm not going outside or further then the fabric store I don't wear any and that's because I break out easily. So really, Lolita fashion has taught me a lot about my physical self~care and styling, it wasn't something I really did more of before aside from washing my problematic face and moisturizing. 

There are other ways that the fashion and lifestyle has influenced me but it's more about how I surround myself with things that suit my aesthetic. I've learned of places that sell the things I like or have the materials to make it and I'm no longer complacent with letting things be the way they are. This fashion has really molded around my life and suited my likes and wants and I don't want to contain pretty things just to clothing. 

I suppose the last thing that has been affected in my life is my work with my indie brand. I had wanted to try for years after getting involved in the fashion and seeing all the other people put their passion for it into creating, Blasphemina's Closet really struck a cord with me as it kind of fit a more gothic and classic style and it really compelled me to try. 


And with that I've finished another 3 days installment of the 365 Lifestyle Lolita Challenge, I feel it was an interesting mix of where I have been and what I've learned and then my love of honey sneaking into a festival (I almost just left it at the pic but realized it didn't share anything about what or why I picked just one). 

I do have to go and do some shipping for a few items from the Season of the Witch Bonnet event so I'm already pretty busy but have to get my rufflebutt back to the sewing table. Maybe I'll add a bit of honey to my next cup of tea when I get back....well, cheers! XOXO
