Yes, I am! Are you in the biggest SA's country, mayhaps? Let's be poor lolita friends if so :')
I actually agree with you, I mean, if I was a proper lolita I would never make fun of itas as long as they are having fun and not being obnoxiously loud/weebish. But tbh, even at the time I knew I was being ita because the shoes I wanted to wear were nowhere to be found and my friends conviced me to wear chuck taylors and oh boi. Also the headress I wanted to wear also disappeared so I was using a two color headress with a kuro coord, plus the fact that I couldn't find a petti to save my life. That's why I only ever wore it once.
I actually have friends that are into the fashion, but like me, no one can afford them damned dresses. And no one can sew, either. I wish I could hang with them to talk in pretty frilly clothes at the park, but this will probably never happen.
