This week's Lolita Blog Carnival theme is "Who inspires you in Lolita fashion?" Immediately peole started springing to mind! So here they are,
1. First and Foremost, the girls of my local comm.
Not everyone is pictured, I just chose some of my favourite outfit examples to show you why I love this community so much. The style diversity. Everyone is always perfectly well dressed, and not afraid to show their own unique style.
2. Midori Fukasawa.
A well known lolita fashion model, I really admire her for being perfect in both Lolita AND Dandy fashion.
3. Shelby Cloud.
One of the first lolitas I started following on youtube. I am continually amazed at how well she pulls of drastically different styles, and manages to make them all her own with unusual accessories.
She also runs a small etsy shop, selling accessories she makes herself, like I do. I own several items from her store, because she makes such cute, original things!
Although not really a lolita anymore, since she got into shironuri and doing her own thing, she was still a huge inspiration to me as a lolita and has since got me into shironuri! Her sense of detail and colour is just fantastic, and I really want to get a copy of her book!
Pictured last, because technically, she's a kodona/dandy style icon. Not lolita. But is still a huge inspiration to my personal style!
