Same event - different years. Our lolita fashion community has been hosting the meeting “Ste-Dolorès” for several years now. My range of colours has always been the same, but I believe my style has improved! I’m glad to think about everything I lived with lolita throughout the years, especially now that I won’t have time for it anymore. I sure will keep doing it from time to time, to events or with dear friends, but it won’t be such a big part of my life anymore.
This dress was inspired by La Dame aux camélias from Dumas Fils, the book that first inspired me to get into lolita fashion. I wanted something quite simple and sober with flowers and pearls as I always pictured the heroine Marguerite Gautier.
