My first lolita item… hm… that is difficult to pinpoint! I’ve admired lolita for a long time but never actively bought anything until 2009. Wow, 2009 seems just like yesterday and I always considered myself a newbie when it came to being a lolita, but it’s already been 6 years! How time flies. Anyway, before 2009, I did buy things from brands that lolitas wore such as h.NAOTO, Sex Pot Revenge, Sexy Dynamite London, and Putumayo, however, I didn’t wear them in a lolita fashion when I bought these items. Here are the skirts that I still own from that period in time (circa 2006-2007):
Regardless of these previous purchases, the item that I consider my first lolita item is this beauty: Baby’s Circus print JSK.
The reason why I consider this dress my first lolita item is because it’s the first main piece that I bought when I decided to jump into lolita fashion — buying this dress was a symbol of me committing to this fashion and no longer just being an admirer. After buying this dress, everything went downhill from there :p I hope to never let this dress go since I’m a terribly nostalgic person. Even though I’ve moved away from sweet lolita for the most part, I still love this dress to pieces, just as much as I loved it when I first saw pictures of it online.
