I saw that there was a post on this, but the last comment was in 2010 so I'm hoping this is an okay place to post this. If not I'm sorry have mercy please.
Here is my issue. Regardless of Lolita or any kind of fashion style type I can't find things that suit me well at all. I wear big baggy t-shirts and black pants everyday. Trying to make this a shorter post, conventions are my chance to wear a different kind of fashion (not to stir up any debates on that issue) that I can't wear in day-to-day life so I want to find the perfect Lolita styled outfit for myself. Trouble being I can't even find black pants that fit well without help from various sales people.
I could really use any help, tips, suggestions on colors, styles or types of lolita would be greatly cherished.
Here's what I know.
I'm 5'3'' I've got redish brown eyes on the darker side, my hair is going to be dyed soon hopefully to a more fitting shade (not loving the red color, suggestions would be loved too), most likely on the darker side. I'm a 36D on top, around a 35~36in waist (around my belly button), my hips are around 41in heh. In general my face is round and chubby, I look chubby and my second and third chin agree. Losing weight has not been an easy thing at all..
To top it off, I got a bad chemical sun burn and the skin on my back, shoulders and chest is scarred and isn't fit to be seen. Nor are my legs...
I like darker colors, red, blue and maybe green. (not pink or yellow though) I've found some things below for possibilities. I'd like to not spend more then $150.. Below are the links, thank you for the help and sorry for the trouble, but i've no one else to turn to.
The red and black version are nice, not sure about the underbust with sleeves
Like it, not sure if it'd look good on me without the hoop-skirt thing underneath, not a fan of them.
Not really Lolita and not something i'd normally wear, but I love the corset.
Love the red/blueish color, maybe not the bows.
I really don't like the white at all, but I'm at a loss as to what would look good color wise.
I know a 'Hot Mess' post, but I'm that desperate. Have mercy, I beg. Thank you everyone.
