Hello Dear Readers! This is my first post under the LBC. This week the prompt was 3 Lolita trends I could never get into. Let's begin:
Don't get me wrong, I have admired many beautiful bonnets, especially this one pictured. But I just couldn't see myself wearing one. I think it's just too much for me in Lolita and it reminds me too much of the Regency period and Jane Austen novels. However I might consider wearing one if I was ever cosplaying Elizabeth Bennet or Marianne Dashwood.
2) Most platform Lolita shoes
I don't usually like platform shoes in general but in Lolita they seem too bulky and heavy. Now there are some platform shoes I do like, these for example (1, 2, 3). The 2 examples pictured are just not my cup of tea.
3) Wristbands with Short sleeve shirts
I have been tempted before, but I could never bring myself to wear wristbands with short sleeves shirts. However under long sleeves to extend the length of the sleeve, yes ( I have long arms and long sleeve lolita shirts are short on me). I think they make the arms look out of balance and much rather wear bracelets instead.
Here are some awesome blogs with there take on this theme:
