My Large Red Vicky Giraffe Print Faux Leather Satchel Bag Handbag Purse has arrived and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am with it. I hope it lasts forever but since it cost only 20 bucks, I’m thinking that it will be in tatters by the end of summer.
I’m thinking of building an outfit around it to make a big splash at a high-level meeting I’ll be attending at the end of July. Picture this:
- ivory top
- brown pants
- red shoes
But I need something red higher up. Red hoop earrings? Red beads? A red hibiscus behind my ear? Maybe a red cane?
OK. Hold the presses. I just saw something that totally derailed me.
“A lolita outfit is composed of basic key elements. These can be broken down into: headwear, blouse, bell-shaped skirt, undergarment, legs, and footwear. Each element is essential in creating the proper lolita aesthetic, but as you will see, there is much room for variety within them. Although none of these can be called absolute necessities, remember that coordinating a lolita outfit is a bit like making a cake. You can take away or replace a couple of ingredients, but if you take away the butter, the sugar, and the milk, it just stops being cake.”
Am I the only one who never heard of a Lolita outfit? I’ve heard of the literary Lolita but I don’t quite recall anything about umbrellas in there. Is a Lolita outfit something that tenderonis wear while they are Lolitaing around? Or are there other occasions when this is the standard gear?
I am definitely going to need some coffee while I think this information over so I’m just going let you alone to decode all this while I tank up. I also need to chew over this new trend of naming things with a google search-type name. Obviously, there won’t be any time to do laundry today.
