So I wanted very badly to get sheep garden, sent an order to closet child, but it was sold out in shop. (Well, I think it's a totally undervalued print, and I do hope to get it one day.)
Some people keep insisting it's an aesthetic thing, but I think it really is a social contruct we are just brainwashed into. There were days when jewels and lace were the more appropriate thing for older married women, not younger girls.
I've also heard a quote about lolita that "a pretty girl doesn't need a dress like that." But I wouln't say the western lolita culture really tolerates any kind of ugliness, at least the prettier the better. And maybe some people think who am I to complain, (at least I think) lookwise I still should pass for late 20 something...Or that's what I think to justify my sweet side. But I think it's sad that I am not so free of social preasure that I just really really don't care enough to not to even bother having the thought cross my mind. When I was younger people told me it's ok to be a little eccentric, because young people are looking for who they are. Apparently after having found your eccentric self, some people think loosing it and conforming is the more mature thing to do. And I wonder what exactly is the right age to "loose yourself", but I'm definetly getting a message by 30 something one should have done it.
Maybe the museum piece of a cart of an old steam train would actually suit the subject. Museum pieces stillhave some charm. I want a pink rollator and the very lacy "granny headdress". And then I'm going to use that rollator, to roll down a hill really fast flashing a bit of petticoats and bloomers...
