I really miss some of the things that are no longer in fashion, or considered "ita". I really hate that word, I think it's kind of snarky. I do understand why some things are considered "ita", because they are really tacky. But I really miss some things that were very in when I first became interested in lolita.
1) Black and White.
When did this go out of fashion? I think it's a tragedy. I love the black and white combo, it can be classic or gothic, and it's so pretty. This pic is a Baby jsk that I just looked at on their site today, so at least black and white is not totally dead.
2) Square headbands
3) When Sweet Lolita prints weren't so scary sweet.
I love the stuff that's in right now (most of it anyway), but I just needed to wax nostalgic for a moment.
