Hello there, I have been interested in Lolita fashion for a long while, and have recently made the decision to go ahead and jump right into it despite my larger size and height. I have researched the do’s and dont’s and even been on major blog sites and places that help to teach about the Lolita fashion (Sites like Hellolace.com). I want to do this right, but the problem is that I have limited funds. I’ve run through sites that are taboo (Like Milano) but recently have found a new place with seemingly lovely reviews for off brand dresses (Quitieland.com). The dress that I have fallen in love with is this one: http://www.qutieland.com/product.php?id=911
I would be very appreciative if you would give me your thoughts about this dress and site in general, and also some tips for a beginner Kote Lolita with a money crises.
Response from Lolita Tips:
If you take a look at my FAQ it will really answer this question for you. I definitely trust QutieLand as I have worked with them many times. That particular dress is a Dream of Lolita replica of a dress from Angelic Pretty and is a very good Lolita dress. It may be slightly difficult to coordinate for a beginner but it’s a great dress either way. For some inspiration on how to wear it you can just do a quick google search for “Angelic Pretty Fantastic Dolly” and you should get some stock photos, magazine ads, and photos of other Lolitas wearing it.
For more help I recommend going through my FAQ and Guides for Beginners.
And as a side note, nobody really calls it Kote Lolita. Hello Lace is so silly sometimes. lol OTT Sweet is the name most Lolitas go with so knowing that may help with any future searches you may do for style inspiration.
