Is VM's greige colorway more like a grey or a blue irl? It looks like a light blue to me on stock photos, but I don't know.

>> No.9992328

>>9992327
It's a lavender-grey colour. It's hard to capture on camera, though.

I was all for the greige release until they paired it with off-white.

>> No.9992329

>>9992328
Sounds pretty - so would you coord it more with lavender items or do you just forego matching it altogether?
Asking because I want to buy one, but I was more interested when I thought it was light grey-sax. Still cute though!

>> No.9992331

>>9992329
Nayrt, I'd coord it with other colors rather than try to match it, like beige (assuming the detailing is in beige rather than off white), brown, maybe bordeaux or dusty pink, etc.

You can only match it with other greige VM items. Better get that wallet ready :^)

If it's the Classical Doll OP, you should match it with white, since that's what the bib colour is. Other than that, I'd say go for ivory. You could also tie in an accent colour instead. Darker browns will work nicely.

I thought at first maybe they needed a way to make the long jsk and not enough print to do a long jsk with but no, the older version has a long jsk that looks just fine.

I think she looks nice with the pink hair and eyebrows, but I did find myself cringing at a few parts of the video. Namely, her saying lolita looks child-like, something about 12 year old asian girls, and the fuckin ciel hat lmao. Not terrible but a bit stereotypical.

In the event that a parcel is returned to the sender, do I, as the sender issue a full refund?

Did you get the package back? If so, refund them because they didn't get the thing they paid for.

If it's just waiting for pick up, that doesn't mean it was delivered to them. That means it was delivered to a postal office near them and they need to go pick it up.

If your buyer is in the US, USPS will hold a package for 15 days. After that they usually send it back.

FYI, if it's FedEx and it doesn't get picked up they throw the package away. So be careful.

Secret #4 is a good reminder to always, always research the seller's feedback and check if there was a previous listing for the item.

I actually just noticed that someone I sold to also listed the item she bought, for a lot more than she bought it for. I know that it's in pretty shitty condition and in no way worth that much, but she downplayed the damages and didn't disclose everything. I'm disgusted by this and don't want some clueless buyer to fall for it, but I'm not sure if there's anything I can do. I'm not going to say who it is since the previous listing is easy to find if you check her feedback.

This is totally anecdotal, but in my experience western lolitas tend to mostly buy second-hand and offbrand stuff, whereas Chinese lolitas buy new brand and are suckers for super expensive MTOs and ~exclusive~ colorways etc.
Obviously there are exceptions (I'm a westerner and I buy new brand stuff, Taobao brands exist for the purpose of cheap Chinese lolitas) but I think it's generally true that Westerners don't really buy new brand. You can see this especially in the closing of BtSSB in NYC and Paris.

If it doesn't need to be lolita, try otome kei, or it's now called girly style? girly casual? Anyway, the brands are Emily Temple Cute, Jane Marple, Leur Getter. Half the time they do cutesy prints that are meant to be worn simply (the other half of the time they make high quality almost-normie style, but at least that gives you an idea how easy it is to tone down the cutesy prints).

If you really want lolita brands, you can keep an eye out for the non-lolita releases -- AP used to make salopettes and mini skirts for fairy kei that don't fit a petticoat, and they still sometimes make cutsew OPs (with print) that look okay without petticoat. Though a lot of times they don't really look lolita, the fairy kei stuff especially looks particularly fairy kei.

Alternatively, a fair number of Innocent World and JetJ can be worn as normie sundresses with a quirky print. They often have less poof in their skirts so they don't look too terrible without a petticoat.

If you really, really want it to be lolita regardless, you can try long dresses from Innocent World and Moi Meme Moitie. The ones in long length made from soft fabric, non-tiered tends to look better without a petticoat than with a petticoat. There's no getting around a blouse other than buying the OP instead, though. And all the points of lolita styling do still apply.

You don't have to wear the illustrations to enjoy them: start collecting novelty stuff like cushions, calendars, catalogs, handkerchiefs, bedding, or Imai Kira or Sakizo art. Or, just keep a folder of your favorite prints and feast your eyes on those from time to time.

There's nothing else to do, until AP starts putting out printed oversized t-shirts. OH, that reminds me: you could wear printed brand parkas and cutsews at least without ascending to lolita.

I think the way secret-anon should go about regaining the love of lolita is to invest in more daily pieces. Her last dress she shows is very OTT and she asks when would she wear it. It's clear that her wardrobe is pretty OTT but she doesn't go to meets anymore so going that OTT just feels odd alone as opposed to regular lolita or casual lolita. If you are having the same problem, try incorporating some pieces into every day wear, or buy a skirt of your favorite print and wear it more normally.

That's likely the case. You often see girls collect OTT pieces that they only wear to meetups or cons, and then they complain that lolita demands too much effort and it's just too difficult to wear, and they cry about the idea of having to leave the fashion when in actuality it's their own fault for falling for the OTT meme.
Pro-tip, ladies: Start treating lolita like a fashion rather than a costume, see how much easier it is to wear then.

What you could do is look at artists you really like and see if they sell t-shirts.

Also if you like the style of prints but don't want to go breaking the bank for them you could look at similar companies and see if they do graphic tees. Axes Femme, Anna Sui, and Jane Marple come to mind for me (JM in particular seems to love cutsew versions of their prints). But I'm a classic/otome fag, so I don't generally know what would emulate BTSSB type styles. Maybe look at taobao indie companies too such as dear li (who does her own illustrations), which is also more mori style, but I think you get my drift. Sorry I can't help more.

There's not really such a thing as brand prints on shirts so you can wear gross ass jeans with them.

I guess you could download print borders and ask spoonflower to make them for you but I hope to god you'd get trouble for trying to make copy cat shirts of AatP dresses.

The Brilliant Kingdom show was really nice to watch but the translation was bad. It was done with subtitles and the red subtitles were hard to read and we missed half the story because none of the songs were subtitled at all.

The ballet was pretty and I liked the burlesque and the chair dance because I'm thirsty as hell but a lot of people thought they were uncomfortable and out of place.

I left after a couple of songs. The dj was playing some weird shit that was hard to dance to. Apparently she played visual kei later. I heard Mana was there watching people dance but I don't know if I believe it. He seemed really over it at Hellocon so idk why he'd come to the afterparty.

Honestly, depending on the season, you'd be able to travel to Japan for the amount that 6 to 8 dresses would see you screwed for just in customs/import taxes. Then you have the experience too, can go to the actual shops as well as the second hand shops, and can leave with an empty suitcase and come back with a full one. Just take all the tags off and fold them like regular clothes so you don't get screwed and mistaken for a dealer going through customs at the airport. For the price of import taxes on a new dress alone you might be able to snatch up three to five second hand pieces of all different brands at closet child. It's worth it to save up and go hog wild in Japan.

Brand shoes hold up decently if you don't run your shoes to death on the regular. It depends on the user. I always scuff my toes, while others don't.
I have had some luck with An-tai-na and Angelic Imprint, though you get what you pay for. They will last you a couple of seasons of regular use.

I'm going to give you the advice that every newbie should get. Figure out your ultimate favorite theme and/or color and build your wardrobe to it. Make an inspo board or three with MSPaint or something. Get a main piece and enough secondary pieces to make three coords from it (two headpieces, two blouses, two pairs socks, one versatile shoes). Just dive in and get what you love, you can always resell the things you regret.

That’s not true, though? I bet it differs from country to country, but in my country you have to pick it up at the customs office as soon as there is no receipt on the outside of the package, the customs declaration is not enough (a suspicious price comes on top of that). So I have to pick up every single package and the people there know how much lolita dresses are worth by now, so it gets more and more risky to give them a fake invoice. If the name of the dress is on the invoice, they google that shit.
The point is, for some people it might be easy to avoid customs, for others it’s not.

I'm glad their parent company has had a hand in reviving MMM, but WW is bothering me a lot lately. Their prices for lots of pieces are way over market value, especially for cheaper brands like Putu and h.Naoto. Their sales are usually just 300Y off blouses or ETC or something really unpopular, and overpriced stock has been sitting on their site for years because they won't discount it.

Wunderwelt Libre is essentially a Lolita news site that they're getting people to run for free. It's all volunteer-written articles and writers MIGHT get a WW voucher for their article (do they even do that anymore?).

They're not literal PJ's, its more of a theme. Plus, of course it's bourgie. It's a fashion where you need multiple parts to complete an outfit. And none of them are cheap.

Personally I’m salty about sweet because it attracts all the sissies, ageplayers and screaming weeaboos. For every nice, mature, well dressed sweet lolita in my comm there are at least two sweet lolitas who can’t dress themselves at all or behave properly in public. There are gothic and classic itas too but they’re always much quieter, and we’ve never had a gothic or classic lolita who’s openly a fetishist. Every fetishist we’ve ever had to deal with wore sweet.

So even though I have a big soft spot for sweet lolita and I like the handful of nice well dressed sweet lolitas I’ve met, I can’t help but be salty towards the substyle for attracting all the shitty people to our community.

This. Also there are a ton of sissies and fetishists who are heavily gothic-leaning, it's not just sweet.

How about we stick together and agree that creeps aren't welcome at all instead of trying to divide the community? Nobody wants that shit anywhere, and wearing a dress with cupcakes doesn't mean I condone someone making it fucking weird.

I kinda feel the same about WW except for the huge scalping part. There's definitely a lot of small items that are way overpriced (it feels like the lowest they'll price clothing is ~4000 yen, maybe 3500 for sales), however beyond that I consistently find good deals on main pieces and the like. Compared to closetchild their prices are a bit ridiculous, but compared to others like Lolita Desu or the current state of mercari/fril/y!j gothic sales, they're not bad at all.

Also, I thought that the stuff that sits on the site forever eventually gets turned into lacemarket lots, or do they not (or never) do that anymore?.

I went! There's three colorways: an orange-ish color, a navy, and black. The fabric is a sort of light crepe-like fabric, and has the look and feel of bandages! I really like it, I'm going to reserve the jsk in black. The shop staff let me take pictures of the fabric samples too, once I explained it was for overseas lolitas. Apparently they haven't made much so they're expecting it to sell out quickly.

I took a trip to Japan some years back and brought back a Moitie dress I'd never seen before. Took awhile to even find it on lolibrary.

The week I got back closet child stocks another one of them, and then two more go up the week after that. Obviously the one I bought isn't the same one that went up on CC since I still have it, and the week after they sold one dress they restock another two more exact dresses? That's really weird.

I guess what I'm saying is coincidences happen. Someone could very well have seen the dress on CC, remembered they had one at home and sold it to WW for a better price than selling it to CC. It's kind of inconclusive at best.

Each Roland re-release comes in four versions effectively, not counting the sizes. A shorter and longer length in the standard fabric, and a shorter and longer length in the season’s ‘special variant’ which changes every time, and which is usually in a different fabric type or colour. The velveteen is this season’s variant version. It’s nice seeing the velveteen back again.

Classic is suffering with the deaths of Victorian Maiden (they're closing at the end of this year) and Excentrique, with MM now only making stuff for their Chinese customers now. IW has come out with a new cheaper label and is doing well which is nice.

Putumayo, Swimmer, and Heart E have also closed.

MmM has been invested in and is better than ever (in terms of transparency) and is slowy pumping out releases.

Holy Lantern has been rereleased like 5 times in three years and is more of a meme than ever before.

Bind LPs are put together from things that didn't sell, not even on sale. If you're a very picky person, just avoid them altogether and buy stuff while they're on sale instead so that you can chose exactly the things you actually like and want to own.

The LPs are good for those who are much more adventurous and it won't ruin their day if they end up with, like, Roman Paisley flare jsk or something.

Red and pink could work as accents I think, larger accessories like a bow in red plaid and maybe socks in ivory with red and gold designs on them, and pink can possible be incorporated in very small accessories like jewelry etc.

Well, they had the whole survey for each territory asking what people would like to see be rereleased most and what issues people have. They now measure everything exactly, no more copy and paste measurements that are almost always wrong since that was a major request (though I've heard their current measurements aren't the best either but at least it's something).
