Heads up, you'll be reading a lot of information. I am sorry! q-q
I didn't know that. I saw Venus in a rather unsettling documentary. Ahahaha and then watched some of her make-up tutorials.
Well I do think that it was the only source when I started researching it years ago. Or well the only source that was legit that would come up in my Belgian google, just like Fanplusfriend was the only to buy site that came up back then. And then I am like talking about ... when I first started researching it was 5 years ago. And then I looked it up again about 3 years ago (I think) and then it was still the same. So shame on Belgian google! But now I get loads of the right links I need xD
Haha, I am not sure if I can skip the Ita phase as everyone starts of as a newbie. I also think I decided the styles I want to do and that'd be Classical and Sweet. I was nagging the ears of my mom by talking about pastel colours the whole time and then she said that pastels would probably suit me, so that gave a boost to try Sweet as well. But I think I am going to start with Classical or just simple fully white or fully black. I am pretty sure my mom won't approve of Sweet as it is childish. But I don't think she's going to stop me. Because I kind of don't have hobbies and my sister neither and we're both in a depression and kind of gloomy and then my mother approves of everything that could make us happier. Like my sister started looming. We already invested 150 euros in that. Besides... I probably won't get it soon because I am the only one of four kids that really understands that we are very poor and therefor don't ask for anything so that's why I don't get anything, you see. My mom is sad because of that so she goes shopping with me during sales and then I get new clothes because the most pieces I chose are 5 euros (and that's an absolute steal here in Belgium). She buys me new clothes so I can be more presentable when I have to teach (I am going to college to study teacher history-english), but also because she knows it makes me happy when she gives me compliments on the clothing.
So about a job! I applied this summer but didn't get any work. Besides that it will be imposible for me to do every kind of job, because I am chronically ill, so a lot of jobs just pass by you know. I had 90% chance on a job if I wasn't ill (because through family). It's very frustrating. But I guess I'll be able to get a job next year because now I know what I should look for ... desk jobs. While I actually only looked at cafes and stores all the time. So now switching over xD I'll probably brush up my languages just to have more chance on a desk job. So that's my plan for the next summer vacation. Or maybe I should go work with kids surprised That'd be nice as well.
Yes, yes, I've been doing a lot of research the thing that helped me most on stores was http://hellolace.net/ . They have a very good list and even say if they ship worldwide and what quality they have. And Sweet Mildred I knew from a review you did so~
In my research I've also been watching the videos of Hello Batty, Lovely Lor, Princess Peachie(?) and yourself. I have tried watching Venus... but no ... just no ... the voice ... I can't bear it for long.
I've also been to http://lolita-handbook.livejournal.com/ . But that was years ago and that information got me even more into lolita at that point, until a friend had to ruin it for me q^q (probably with the best intentions, but still...)
I've also been reading e few articles from http://fyeahlolita.blogspot.be/ .
I've also been on another avatar site and talked there with some lolitas and aspiring lolitas. And read comments.
Like with the previous mentioned aspiring lolitas, I also don't really have the money for it.
And my parents can't be like "Here I still have a bit left, you can have this as pocket money." because we never have money left.
Besides the new schoolyear is coming up and college is going to cost a fortune x-x
And unlike other countries we don't get paid for studying.
So no, I haven't had the chance yet to buy some clothing sad
