The first time I wore it out of the house was to a park for a photoshoot with a friend of mine, we got a lot of looks but no one made any comments.
Before that, we also went to a lolita swap at an anime con but I only had one blouse and my friend was wearing it, so she was dressing in lolita (wearing my clothes lol) and I was not. Bt it was kinda sad because almost no one talked to us
except when I asked someone the price of something I was interested in buying. Actually come to think of it my friend has worn my lolita clothes out in public more times than I have lol, she's a lot braver than me and can't afford her own so I let her wear mine sometimes.
