I was on the city bus heading downtown a couple of weeks ago when I spied this young woman whom I recognized from the group of Lolita girls that I had photographed for a previous post. (She is the girl in black seated in front of her friends). She was meeting her friends for an afternoon tea and walkabout, so I sat with her and chatted about her love of Lolita fashion and where she found her dresses. The clothes are quite expensive, and she has purchased some online, but has found that fit is an issue, particularly when ordering from Japan. She had this particular dress custom made by a woman in Texas. I love the details of the pattern on the skirt, and the polka dot fabric trim at the hem to match the waistband.
