here comes my BABY

“that’s not LOLITA,” someone would say, “she’s not wearing a PETTICOAT and her TIGHTS HAVE HOLES and she’s FAT and i HATE HER and i will ANONYMOUSLY FIND OUT HER ADDRESS and INFORM HER WORKPLACE SHE’S A SLUT.”

5 years ago that would bother me. Or I’d be the one saying it, probably.

Surely, dressing yourself without the help of rules and guidelines and a bunch of screaming internet girls is a loathsome task, but these days I am (questionably) managing.

Actually, when I got home I kind of hated this outfit. I wondered if perhaps I had walked around looking like a fucking mess all day and because everyone perceives me as always being a fucking mess no one bothered to tell me.


blouse: thrifted

dress: BABY THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT. this dress has been through a LOT

  1. I think you look absolutely beautiful and I love this outfit. Tights with holes are cool these days, so no worries there 😀 (at least that's what I tell myself so I put off getting new leggings for as long as humanly possible).
