CNN Article on Lolita Style

Happy Friday Everyone!  Let us end this work/school week on a positive note.  Today on egl I spotted a post that I had to read.  CNN did a story on Lolita and it actually turned out very well.  A majority of the time when regular press discuss anything Lolita they tend to muck it up.  This article was a fresh and pretty accurately written one.  The picture (shown above) is also an accurate and nice one that represents Lolita well.  
The story touches on the history of Lolita, popular brands, the style, why people dress in Lolita, and more. 

 Here is a quick snippet from the article.
"However, another aspect of the word "lolita" describes youth, and it's this meaning that's intended in the fashion style that bears this name. The style includes victorian-inspired clothing and also echoes Rococo stylings, although since its inception the fashion genre has expanded to include much more."

Jump on over to the CNN website and give the story a read.  I think you will enjoy it.


  1. This is a great article yes, but if you read the comments, its kind of sad, I guess. There are the people who support Lolita and the fashion, but there are also people who pretty much thing the generic comments of the fashion being only to attract pedophiles and its all from anime and the usual stuff.

    50/50 its pretty much everywhere.

  2. Yay, it's actually getting recognized here in the states! But I agree with Anna, the comments are just really sad =(
