July Challenge

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
Occasionally there comes a time when one loses interest in the hobbies they once loved. The spark that piqued your interest has flickered out. The delight of new information or items no longer brightens your day. And after ten years, it has finally happened to me. I have been rather depressed with the realization of this metamorphosis. And resisting against this change has done nothing but dishearten me even further. So I have finally decided that I will no longer be focusing on lolita fashion.

In my earlier lolita days, I never would have thought this day would come. I had always envisioned that I would want to be lolita for a very long time. I imagined having a lolifed wedding and house. But I have no care for such things anymore. I no longer care to learn or remember the name of prints. Lucky pack sales no longer set my heart aflutter. The arguments of coordination aesthetics have become a bore. And the egl topics repeat redundantly. I have not visited any of the brand stores in 3-4 months nor do I want to. It really saddens me to feel this way. But no matter what I have tried, the flame I felt for lolita fashion is gone and it is time to move on with my life.

But fear not. Princessly Living will not be disappearing. I am still very much interested in feminine, cute fashions such as himekaji, sweet gyaru, and ulzzang just to name a few. But this time I plan on making my own way. I am tired of other's rules. No more limits on clothing choices or styles. No worries of public ageplay misconceptions. No longer sharing interests with repugnant people. This time I am not going to tie myself to one specific school of fashion, I am just going to be me. And I feel that I am going to have so much fun.

I'm sorry lolita fashion you're prefect in every way, but no longer meant for me. I am sorry if this displeases any of my followers. And if you plan to unfollow me because of this decision, know that it has been a wonderful journey with all of you.

It is natural and right to be sad about the passing of an age, even if you are moving onto something better. Which I do think you are headed towards. It is sad to let an established aesthetic go, but much more rewarding, I hope, to create a unique one for yourself.

As someone who is trying to create a style of their own, I would be very interested in hearing your journey into creating a princessly, feminine lifestyle and style.

Good luck!

I am very sorry that the rules of Lolita fashion have made you feel this way.I personally think if silly rules are ruining what you love then ignore the silly rules and just keep loving what you love with out the rules.

Lynette: I am very happy for the positive comments. I will definitely be blogging more and talking about my style changes.

hellokitt9: I have ignored the rules for sometime now. Besides the issues I have with some of the rules, I have had enough of the petty arguments, communities cliques, and general attitude of the community. I would rather part ways before I loathe the fashion and lifestyle that once used to give me so much joy.

fizgig1202: Welcome to my blog! ❤ Thank you for the positive attitude toward my change.

It is very unfortunate to hear that you have lost interest in a fashion that you used to have so much passion for. None the less, as long as you are happy about it, then I think that is all that matters.
