Lolita 52 Challenge Week 14 - Lolitas I Would Love To Meet

I've had the opportunity to meet some pretty amazing people through lolita fashion including a number of fairly well-known figures in the community as I described in last week's post. This week's topic focuses on which lolitas I would love to get the chance to meet. After thinking long and hard I came up with a bit of a shortlist of girls who I would love to get the chance to sit down and chat with. Many of them are some of my lolita style icons whose taste and coordinates I constantly find myself admiring while others have gotten into the lolita fashion industry in Japan and would be fascinating to talk shop with.

In no particular order:

Cathy Cat - I've been following Cat for a while now and I have to say that she is one of my favorite content producers on Youtube. Not only is she always on the pulse of what is going on in Harajuku, but she is obviously a well-loved member of the Tokyo lolita community. For anyone looking for more amazing lolita fashion videos, I highly suggest checking out her channel and being on the lookout for her updates every Monday. Even though she is constantly busy with her job and her work as a fashion photographer for Kawaii Pateen, Cat never fails to put out some really lovely videos which appeal to all levels of lolitas.

Fannie Rosie - I love Fannie's classic style. She never fails to be elegant in her coordinate shots and she has some of the most amazing hairstyles out there. I love that she uses her natural hair and always tries to pull her whole outfit together from the dress to the accessories to her hairstyle. She looks incredibly put together and I aspire to have the same effortless elegance that she constantly portrays.

Iona - Another girl whose style I adore, Iona always looks impeccable to me. She rocks her coordinates, and has a lot of variety in her wardrobe, but still manages to maintain a very signature look. I love her taste and how well she puts together pieces without overbalancing her outfits - minimalistic, but incredibly chic.

Marlessa - This girl is incredible at putting together truly stunning coordinates. I've been constantly floored by the photos that come out of so many big European events featuring Marlessa. She has an amazing knack for putting together a delightfully whimsical and visually appetizing coordinate which is simultaneously over-the-top and yet the picture of elegance. Her headpieces and accessories are to die for and I wish I had even a percentage of her affinity for artistry.

Photo (c) Sapphira
Sapphira - This girl is definitely living the dream - going from a run-of-the-mill lolita in the UK to being a model in Japan, Sapphira is the success story for so many foreigners. She has had amazing opportunities to work with so many different brands and designers that I'm sure she would have a number of awesome stories to tell. I love how toned down her personal style is as well and though simplistic it is always cute and well put together.

One day I hope that lolita fashion will give me the chance to meet some of these amazing young women - even if only for a short chat! Do we share any lolita role models? Share in the comments below!

Until next time, stay strong and beautiful, my lovelies,
