College seemed like a great place to wear Lolita to; I could just sit in class for a few hours, and then if I wanted to do homework on campus I could, but if I felt too self-conscious I could just go home. Minimal risk to the outfit, and minimal exposure to casual observers.
So here it is:
sorry for the overload of pictures, it's just that I'm very proud of myself.
I know that this probably doesn't qualify as true Lolita; it's offbrand and my hair is very plain and I'm not wearing any jewelry, but I thought it was better to start out with a plain outfit that definitely all matched before trying to make some OTT coord that may or may not have turned out right ^^'
I thought I looked pretty, anyway.
The JSK is Infanta, I have on stockings with a gray rose pattern on them like the one on the dress, but it doesn't really show up in these pictures... oh well. Underneath the JSK I have on a striped dress I found at Ross last year; I thought the stripes would go well with the stripes on the bows, as well as adding sleeves. To tie the stripes all together, I wore a bow in my hair, but did nothing else to my hair. Very plain makeup was also used... I was very nervous about messing up, ha ha.
The weather was perfect for this outfit; the JSK is heavy and thick, but I don't know what it's made of... something very warm. Thankfully, it was cold outside (it's turning into Autumn, I'm so happy ^^) and the layering didn't make me overheat. I even wore a petticoat :D
So, how did I do?
