Am I ok? How do you focus and just build a decent wardrobe for different substyles? I feel like I can't put more than one decent coord together for each main piece I own and it's getting me down a lot more than it should.

>> No.9661991

>> No.9661996

If your dresses make you happy, who cares? Keep buying what you like.

If you dresses are stressing you out, consider downsizing. The Kon Mari method is great for this, even if you only apply it to your lolita wardrobe.

If you don't want to get rid of stuff, start focusing on how to get more wear out of each dress. Can you add boleros, blouses, or legwear to your wardrobe? Try to challenge yourself to find new items that go with at least three main pieces in your closet. Try to identify clusters of items that can be applied to multiple main pieces (ie. jewelry, legwear, and headwear that all goes with a theme or color). Ban yourself from buying any more main pieces until you have three coords with each main piece.

>> No.9661998

I finally have built my wardrobe big enough to be able to comfortably wear lolita, but I keep moving and now I don't have anyone to go anywhere with.
Sad thing is I'm in such an instagram worthy city. It just feels like I'm wasting it all.

>> No.9661999

You can focus better when you figure out what you like to wear (rather than what you like in general), and you can do that when you have at least one good coord.
Do you really have nothing that matches in your wardrobe? Maybe try to focus on putting together just one good coord as a start? Pick a color that flatters you and stick to a simple coord (as in, not too many accessories, no crazy cuts or prints), start slow.
Having someone to guide you might help too, do you have any lolita friends that can give you feedback?

>> No.9662005

>Ban yourself from buying any more main pieces until you have three coords with each main piece.
This is actually pretty good advice, thanks! I'm going to start with my fav dresses and work through them making sure I can dress them differently.
Odd that you should mention it, I actually KonMari'd my wardrobe about two months ago! It's definitely helped as I did feel much, much worse about the cluttery mess before I did.

I think my problem is that I have so many different dresses in different styles. I have one or two main themes/colours that take up about 70% of the wardrobe but even within that cohesive lump it ranges from classic to sweet to gothic to more oldschool sweet.

I think my main problem is blouses and footwear. I wear the same shoes with everything and I think I'm really awful at figuring out what blouses are supposed to go with what. Do you think it'd be worth consulting the coord help thread now and then for something that simple?

>> No.9662009

I think that's a perfectly reasonable thing to ask the coord help thread for.

>> No.9662013

Definitely ask the coord help thread. I think that with enough complimentary pieces like blouses, boleros, accessories, etc. you can balance this many styles in one wardrobe if you like them all, you just need to figure out how to coord them and make them all work, and this is something that you can learn.

Got screwed over by people who were supposed to be my friends. Unfortunately sometimes being "salty" is more important than treating people with respect and loving lolita fashion as a community. It's made me want to quit the fashion but it's also something that helped me out of a deep, dark hole in the past.

It all makes me think that for some reason, horrible people are incredibly attracted to this fashion and I don't know why. I've never experienced such hateful, egotistical and nasty people before. It's shocking how little regard can be shown to others and their feelings because dresses are more important than actually being genuine.

I don't know if I should keep everything and start fresh and try to move on but be less trusting and paranoid at the same time or sell everything and try to find something else to take its place.

Pretty much my only close friend who I can talk about Jfash with is going through a hard time right now so I haven't been able to talk to her a lot recently.

Part of the issue with this is getting to talk about Jfash with someone really helps distract me from my off and on struggles with an ED.

I'm pretty introverted and don't have a ton of stuff I get really gung-ho about so having someone to talk to me about something I really like had helped.

Along with her absence though, I was recently faced with a series of triggers for falling back into my disordered eating.

I developed feelings for someone but I have deep seated feelings of inadequacy and only feel cute when I look sickly thin. It gets to the point that whenever I eat to the point of feeling full I'll sincerely be very irritated for the rest of the day because I correlate that feeling with looking disgusting.

I'm not overweight, at all, if anything I'm on the slim side of average or the higher side of slim. But I've started back at not wanting to exceed 1000cal a day. I know it's not a huge restriction as of now, but there were days last week where I did less than 400.

I feel like if I can't control anything else in my life, I can least control the number on the scale going down.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to fall back into another round of this bullshit. I'll have to get stuff altered to look okay if I lose much more and my closet is rather large so it'll end up being a ton of $.

I know recently there was some huge derail with some shitposter talking about anorexia and I don't want things to derail to that but I really needed to say this somewhere.

I'm completely serious, why is it that guys can lift weights and follow strict diets, but virtually all women can't stop themselves from eating refined sugars until they're fat?

High-status males will never date you if you're fat, and you're on a time limit, they don't want you in your late 20s or 30s either, and you'll just have retarded kids if you wait that long anyway.

Being called a slut and striking is as close to vanilla as you can get these days in a bedroom scenario outside of sticking exclusively to the missionary position.

Anon didn't mention anywhere that her boyfriend refused to stop the striking or the dirty talk, and I'm going to assume that this wasn't the case because she seemed to be mortally offended by the fact that he called her a slut and took it as some grave personal attack against her character even though it was clearly just dirty talking/acting out a fantasy like millions of other people do. Being an adult and compromising in this situation would be realizing he fucked up, asking him not to do it again and moving on. If he refused to drop the subject then yes, he'd be in the wrong.

Actually it is you.

Try to resolve your problem with men before starting a new relationship or having kids for fuck sake. Maybe you are subconsciously trying to find some flaws in your partner just to dump him? Relationships are hard. You have to work with your partner in order to make it work.
Did you say to your ex that you didn't like spanking before sex? Did you say to another one that you prefer not to listen about his ex-gf?

I know $200 may not be much to some of you but that's a really big hit for me.My ATM card expiring at the perfect timing for me to cash the check and me having a thigh pimple come out of nowhere was just too perfect of a storm I guess.

I just wanted to do something nice for her with extra cash I found my way. Now I'm going to nap after venting because I needed to take the day off work (wouldn't be able to focus and need time to turn my house upside down). Hopefully after I clear my head with a nap I can look around more and find it.

Goodnight, everyone.

I'm been in london for a couple of years and I've not seen any lolitas yet. Then again, I'm too anxious to join a comm (I'm one of the many anxiety lolitas that were posting in the previous general).

Oh no, I think I did see one in the Brandy Melville off carnaby street, but she was wearing a polkadot milanoo-type blackxpink coord with tumblr hair. Ita but she looked like she was having fun so I can't really fault her.

Can't join the cosplay community in my city because its toxic af, can't join the lolita comm because I'm not a qt grill.

If you know brands/styles/releases and such it doesn't matter to me whether you actually wear the fashion or not, there's just too many guys who'll message you because they think lolita looks neat, but then you can never really talk to them about it.

I want to wear more lolita, but I can't decide on one aesthetic. My dream dresses are all over the place, from Moitie to AP to IW, it'd be ok if I had one style I loved most, but I genuinely like all of them. This wouldn't be a problem for someone with a large income, but I'm the sort who needs to save a lot before I buy anything. I feel like I'll never have my dream wardrobe or even a good coord because my tastes are so here and there.

Thank you anons! It happened months ago and I'm ok now. I had several bad encounters with guys from the chans and guys in general to the point where now i don't even wanna try to be friends with one ever again.

That guy said he first thought I was another guy "roleplaying" as a girl due to some expressions i use and such, then noticed i was a real girl (by how feminine my hobbies were,how i described my looks,a picture of my hand,...)
And he told me that talking to me made him smile, that his life was shitty and i was his ray of sunshine,... but that he decided he didn't want to lie any longer and have it hurt me even more when i learn about it in a way or another.

I assumed "she" was shy like me for not wanting to show face or voicechat for a little while. I was beginning to trust her. She was everything i look for in another girl. And she told me she liked me a lot, liked lolita fashion too,... she would tell me sweet things that made me get butterflies in my stomach,...

I was devastated when I saw his message and began crying in front of my computer. I just kept my cool and said I understood his feelings but that I didn't wish to stay in contact any longer (he wanted to "stay friends") and blocked him.

So yeah, be careful out there!

Found it. Somehow when making my living room bed last night it got trapped under the fitted mattress sheet. Not sure how, maybe it fell out of my pocket while I was making it and I didn't notice.

No denial here. I also have a really short attention span and poor memory. If I start any task it'll only take about a minute before I lose focus. Not sure if it's a result of my legitimate medical insomnia or if I have undiagnosed ADHD or something.

Reminds me of when the discord for "cgl" was made and then anon searched the discord link to find that the top result was an /r9k/ thread that predated the /cgl/ thread.

Having been that guy, the best advice I can give to you is to just appreciate it. If he's anything like I was he really just enjoy taking care of you and seeing you happy. If you feel the need to communicate part of it than do so, he'll love it.

My gal went and took a shit in my heart and there have been other girls but none who I enjoyed taking care of more than her or being appreciated by. One of the most painful things I've ever had to do was turn her away when she tried to come back to me last month, but as much as I wanted that feeling back I couldn't disrespect myself like that.

Don't worry anon, I care about him more than anything in the world. I definitely appreciate everything he does for me, but I do want to show him that even more.
Although I know he genuinely loves making me happy, I always worry that by accepting everything he gives me I'm taking advantage of that love. I talked to him about it earlier and he was really understanding and we worked something out because he sort of feels the same way with me.

And I'm really sorry that happened to you but it's probably for the best you didn't go back to her. I'm sure that one day you'll be able to find somebody you care for like nothing else and who also reciprocates those feelings.

it's not really worth it, most men aren't worth being friends with until you are somewhat older.
I mostly learned this from guys themselves. They're the first ones to say guys and girls can't really be friends.
Go read some guy only forums they don't expect women to be on, or listen to guys at bars, they're certainly not extolling the virtues of having platonic female friends.
The people that jump to defend guy friends are generally other clueless women (like here)
There is some minority of men that are good friends but it's not really worth the effort imo.

>> No.9663390

The only good make friends I’ve ever had were gay dudes. The straight guys either ended up hitting on me and then got angry when I didn’t want to kiss them, or dropped me as a friend the second they got a girlfriend. These were my absolute best friends in high school, too. Currently the only male friends I have are also in long-term relationships and also friends with my husband.

Idk, most of my friends are girls, everyone is different anon.
Sure, I don't do the same stuff when i hang out with guys or with girls, but that is perfectly fine, gives a bit more variety to your life. I can enjoy going to a party and getting shitfaced as well as i can enjoy going to a fancy pastisserie and eatingcake and drinking tea, like everyone.
And thinking that you can't befriend a guy without him falling in love with you is pretty delusional. In fact it happened to me the other way arround a few uears back when I was single, but I didn't even cut contact with them for that, and eithe will I blame the complete opposite gender.
I don't even like to bring out I'm a guy when I post in this board, but the sexism that oozes from this threads makes me sick.

>> No.9663402

Actually, I think a lot of girls can relate to having men only befriend them because they want something. Like, maybe it only happens a few times, but then that's enough for someone to be completely distrustful of men every time they act friendly. I'm still trying to learn to stop being afraid of men because I know #notallmen but it genuinely is a pattern, at least with me and a lot of other girls.

>> No.9663424

>thinking that you can't befriend a guy without him falling in love with you is pretty delusional
I'd be talking from experience, though I don't think any of them were really ~in love~ with me. It's more like a sense of entitlement that many men feel to women they're close to. I used to hang out with mostly guys in college and nearly all of them stopped making any effort to hang out with me once I got a boyfriend and was no longer "available". The only ones who still wanted to spend time outside of class were those who already had a girlfriend or boyfriend of their own. I agree with >>9663402 that it's #notallmen but it has happened often enough that I'm a bit wary of men approaching me for friendship because the chance that they actually want something else is very high.
About this time this year I was getting along very well with a coworker who was also into anime and liked to talk about lolita with me, and because he stuck around despite knowing I'm engaged, I thought we was only interested in me platonically. Turns out he was talking about me behind my back to other male coworkers about how I was totally into him and he was going to bang me and steal me away from my fiancé. When that didn't happen he turned vindictive and started calling me frigid behind my back, all while still being very friendly to my face. I only found out after another female coworker overheard them talking and told me about it. Who the fuck has time for that kind of high school drama bullshit? I've found that it's much easier to just keep men at arm's length until you're sure that they don't have some ulterior motive.
I'm not even cute, by the way. Maybe nerdy guys think I owe it to them to give them a chance because I'm on their level? I don't know.

That’s my experience with most hairdressers. They’re always fucking up my bangs because I guess straight eyebrow-length bangs haven’t been trendy for a while, so most of them will cut them at least 1/2” too short, sometimes even shorter. They also keep trying to destroy my side bangs with a razor even when I explicitly tell them I want to keep them one length. I’ve started just cutting my bangs myself and life has gotten a lot easier.
It’s even worse for my boyfriend, who looks terrible in currently trendy hairstyles but they keep doing it anyway even when he comes in with a picture of something else. He can’t just cut it himself, though, and I don’t trust myself to do it properly either.
>at least his shitty haircuts only cost €20 whereas women’s cuts start at €35

My parents brought me shitty "girly" pink sugary cupcakes for my birthday today instead of a real cake. I'm already going to have cupcakes,macarons and shit at the next meetup this week. I usually always post a picture of my cake every year but now I can't.
Also I got 60$ (i usually have more)more from them and some uggo normie brand jewelry from my grandparents instead of $$ what the hell am i supposed to do with that? I just wanted brand and a pretty cake to celebrate my 20th birthday I'm feeling super disappointed

I legit went out and bought a 'light ash blonde' box dye after posting that and my hair is 100x closer to what I wanted, and doesn't even feel fried.

I.. I don't know how to feel about this.

In general, dyed blond hair needs some highlights to look nice. Hell, even my purple/grey hair gets highlights to look nicer.
You might just want to go to a different salon, and pay attention to the hairdresser's own style. If it's different from yours, then pick someone else.

I was planning to go to Japan with my then boyfriend and some friends in November later this year. However, I broke up with my boyfriend a few months ago after our relationship just got worse and worse and things have been so fucking difficult. I saw him at a party after we broke up and he did a lot of things that were honestly disgusting. After that I told my friends that I didn’t feel comfortable traveling overseas with this person as he seems extremely volatile and I had genuine concerns for my safety. I haven’t had much contact with him but from what I’ve heard he’s still a pretty volatile person and it honestly breaks my heart.

I had been planning to go on this trip for ages and had invested a fair amount of time and money into it and I just feel so defeated. The time that they’re meant to leave is rapidly approaching and the closer the date the worse I feel. They’re travelling with a good friend of mine and we were planning on having a full on cgl day and I was really looking forward to it.

I know I shouldn’t feel so down because I’m probably going to go next year with my current boyfriend and my life has been a lot more stable in comparison to a few months ago. I just really wanted to hang out with my friend in Japan and it’s just making me feel extremely depressed.
