I really love lolita fashion, but...
Lolita fashion is a beautiful and extravagant. When you have an illness, the act of getting dressed can be a challenge. An additional challenge that Lolitas may face is that of lolita meet ups. These events are a great way to connect with other fans of this fashion style! Meet ups can be an additional challenge. After all, you often need to be in the fashion for a long period of time at these events.
Here are my tips on how to wear and enjoy lolita fashion at fashion meets despite your illness!
