ARMSTREET WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME
Madeline After Prayer by Daniel Maclise (1868).
Lolita fashion is, for the unknowing viewer, a strange occurrence. For it’s wearers, a deeply rooted practice. If you find any connection at all with this Fashion, it is a deep connection that doesn’t fade away. I am still learning as a Lolita and still growing as an individual, but at this point Lolita is as much as part of me as the natural color used to be before I began wearing wigs and dying my hair. My mindset is different than it used to be, and the world is understanding that just because something is different doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Things change… and that’s okay.
