I have something I just MUST get off my chest....*Takes a deep breathe*
I WORK HARD FOR MY FRILLS!!!!
Don't you? Whether you sew them yourself or save your rainy-day pennies for Brand, we all work hard for the frills. So the thought of a community/ 'Charity' on Tumblr called, 'Frilly Moon' that's mission statement is 'This is a lolita and kodona charity for people who cannot afford to be frilly.'....
I'm sorry you can't afford to be frilly. I can barely afford to be frilly!~ But by the grace of sweet friends who love me very much on my birthday and around Christmas, savvy second hand scouring, and a three hem skirt that looks awesome! I can slowly work to the look that I want all the time.
Don't expect your frills to be handed to you! Lolita is a Luxury ladies! It is not a basic need! Eat. Pay your bills. Put gas in your car. Then, if you want, save those few last five dollars you have and combine it with the last five dollars of your last pay check and eventually you'll get to that dream dress! or that cute piece of jewelery that you've had your eye on.
No one is perfect their first few outfits, even if no one likes to remember it, so why should we as a community sacrifice our hard earned indulgences for those who did not work hard for them?
Forgive me if this makes me sound like a bad person, but my opinion is my own.
How do you feel about this? Are you for giving your clothes away for free, or you a girl that recycles her older frills on the EGL sales comm. Like most every other Lolita to reinvest in your collection?
