About the Blog
Pink Milk Tea is my attempt at writing a blog focusing on lolita fashion from the perspective of one sweet lolita. It will have entries on different topics related to the fashion or the authoress.
There is no direct plan for this blog. I want to write about lolita fashion because it plays a significant and important role in my life. I would like to share my writings with other lolita or interested parties.
About Lolita Fashion
Lolita fashion is a Japanese style that takes inspiration from young girl’s clothing of Victorian England, the decadence of Rococo art and interior design, and the dreams of an utopian anachronistic era that never was. Lolita clothing is designed to look inspired by the past but utterly unhistorical. There are many sub-styles of lolita fashion with slightly different characteristics, such as gothic lolita, sweet lolita, and classic lolita. There are also complimentary styles such as Japanese gothic, aristocrat, and dandy-looking boy styles.
The major publication for lolita fashion is the Gothic & Lolita Bible. Recently the American company Tokyopop has released several volumes of an English-language adaptation Gothic & Lolita Bible.
Lolita fashion is not connected to the well-known novel by Vladimir Nabokov. Although the historical origins of lolita fashion are vague, the fashion evolved from other Japanese styles. Lolita fashion is not a sexual fetish or connected to sexual activities.
About the Authoress
I, Alice, have been wearing lolita fashion since 2006. I am a sweet lolita, adoring everything fluffy, pink, and cute~ ♥ I am not a “lifestyle lolita,” but I enjoy the rosy tint that lolita fashion has cast over my day-to-day life. I am an active member of Chicago’s gothic & lolita community, and moderate ChiGothLoli, where we plan events and talk.
When not wearing frills, I enjoy spending time with my person and my guinea pigs, causing mischief with my dear friends, rocking hard to heavy metal music, and eating as many cupcakes as I possibly can. I study accounting at business school and love it!
