How do you feel about alternative fashion?
« on: August 24, 2009, 09:40:51 am »
And which ones do you like the best if you don't think we all just look like freaks?
I'm really into Japanese street fashion, my favorite being Lolita. (Nothing to do with the book, pedophilia, any of that.. It's a really modest fashion.) I dress in it often, but I notice that a lot of other lolita mock people who dress in other alternative fashions. Is it the same was with people who dress in other alternative fashions?
We all look ridiculous, why don't we all get along?

I have no idea what alternative fashions are or Japanese street wear is.
I like jeans and T-shirts
Alternative fashion is like goth, emo, scene, etc. I can't think of any popular ones that aren't dark, but they aren't necessarily dark.

It's fine if you're in an informal setting, but at a job, that's just not gonna fly.

japanese street fashion is awesome!
do you have the FRUiTS books? i can look
at them for hours...

i've always done my own thing with fashion,
and i always tend to get compliments. i've never
really tried to make a "statement" ... i just really
can't stand spending money on plain clothes.

sometimes i'll get those looks -- i'm sure you know
the ones. but mostly, they're from females my age
who are way too insecure for originality. and that's
totally okay, because we don't wear it for them  :thumbsup:

i used to be a walking rainbow "candy kid" if you will,
but i've toned it down over the years. i'm really into vintage,
victorian, artsy things now, with a smidgen of bohemian thrown in.
i think my personality has always shown through my wardrobe.
its just a fun way to express yourself...

i'm with you, JessieKateRose! i'm drawn to that lolita
look as well  :D

depends on what kinda job you're going for,
and the type of people over you. i worked at a retail
store for three years and aside from jeans and flip-flops,
we were free to dress however...

and i did  :P

i get what you're saying though. sometimes you
gotta tuck in that shirt and perform your robot duties  :bs:

My baby sister n law is really into the japan fashion as well. She plays alot with her clothing and makeup, she wants to be a fashion designer when she gets older. She doodles alot now. Im just a brand name girl. As my husband says im a product of my raising. Heres a picture of my baby sister n law!!

No, I don't have any of the FRUiTS magazines. I have the first four English Gothic & Lolita Bibles, though.
About knowing the looks.. I get all sorts of looks. xD Going out looking as poofy as I do.. People have all kinds of reactions. I get people staring at me with their mouths open, glaring at me, complimenting me, asking questions, sometimes yelling at me.
I used to be into decora and all of that, but once decora lolita became the new lolita I was just not into it anymore. I've seen too much of it, and a lot of it is pretty poorly done.
