I came across this old blog post 2 years ago I had about wishing upon having lolita dress...Can I has lolita pweeeaaase?
And heck, you know what. From those 4 dresses I posted back then, I ACTUALLY-REALLY OWNED THEM. NOW JUST REALIZED AND I'M IN AWE, I ACTUALLY POSTED THEM BEFORE? LIKE A RANDOM WISHLIST? I MADE A WISH ON BLOGGER AND IT CAME TRUE OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Even though the Milk-chan red jsk I owned was just a replica (already sold it a while ago), and recently bought Kumya-chan and friends judy JSK, not in yellow but in mint. BUT HECK! I HAD THEM. It would have been the most- unbelievable shit ever but it happened.
Wearing lolita has always been a... silly wish of mine. "It's impossible!" It's either about the pricyness of the fashion, the lack of confident to pull it off, how unpractical the fashion is... etc, etc. But look at me right now, I'm kinda rocking it.
I started with affordable offbrand stuff, bodyline, taobao shop, replicas and even picking up cute stuff at local lala store. (lala stands for, bad taste hipster in Malaysia) After buildiing a decent wardrobe with a lot of dresses, I started to sell off all the- undesirable items (especially replicas), gain some money and start investing on lolita brands.
I started with a really cute and old sweet teddy printed skirt by Metamorphose temps de fille. Usually stuff from this brand aren't as crazy expensive as other big boss brand like Angelic Pretty, Baby... I got this skirt for quite some time already but- still have not wear it so far. orz
Slowly I started hunting for 3/5 away from original price kind of big brand dresses. Started with Candy Shop JSK from Angelic Pretty, then Kumya-chan and friends Judy JSK... (This one is more pricy, but I couldn't think straight. I missed this dress too many times! STAHP NAO) Later I hunted AP Romance Doll, Toy Drops....

And the most unbelievableeeee- I recently purchased a first hand Angelic Pretty brand dress set straight on reservation period!!! It was a hard bill to pay, but I'm so so so excited! I really can't wait to receive my first dress!!

Hopefully I won't be a lazy ass and post about the dress when I received it. I suppose I should write the entries on Livejournal and copy pasta here, lol. It's like a dream come true!
Before I end this post, I wanna saaaaaaaay. If you wish hard, think hard, crave hard-- eventually it will come to you. It's like a magic spell that takes a lot of patient, a lot of years to complete. Your desire will take you to your goal! Remember the power of positive thinking.
But seriously, lolita fashion is like a endless money sucking black hole if you let your greed control you. BEWARE! BEWARE... *Zecora voice*
