Based ! 40's fashion will forever be peak for me, I love how it is a direct reflection of women's place changing in society because of the war. The strong shoulders, the military inspired cut, the shortening lengh of the skirts because of the rationing of fabric. It's simple, flattering and confortable!

I like 20's and 60's fashion exactly for the same reason. 50's fashion feels so sad and reductive next to it. I hate how people only think of the 50's when they think of vintage fashion.

I wish I could dress like I was living in the late 60's. I don't wear dresses but I'd love a blouse or shirt in the same vein. With a high collar, sharp cuffs, nice angular lines, but really trippy patterns.

No. 316607

There are a lot of vintage patterns online for free if you sew. I've seen people use vintage scarves with crazy patterns and make clothes out of them. You can quite easily find clothes from the 60s/70s in wearable condition, but be prepared to spend some time washing and reinforcing it.

Should I spell it out or
Maybe she's just hurt you "left" her for a man and feels betrayed or something but it kinda sounds like something happened between your dh and her. Something bad.

No. 315766

She never met my husband, let alone talk to him. We did date for a while and I asked her to spell it out for me if she wanted to keep dating or if I could date other people, because she didn't seem too interested and I had to do everything, it was like that in our friendship too though, I had to always take the initiative to do anything, I didn't particularly mind it but I need answers when I ask questions and she never gave me a literal answer, everything was so nuanced or I don't care/you can choose/whatever, she knows I can't read people for shit so I need clear answers, I literally never got a straight answer from her despite asking a million times in different situations and phrasing it differently because I genuinely had a crush on her at some point. All it took from her was to say one time that she wanted to date me and I wouldn't be with a moid.

No. 315775

How did you leave out that critical detail?! LMFAO she was your ex, come on. She was jealous and didn’t want to see you with a hubby. It is not a huge mystery. She probably distanced herself because she still had feelings for you and knew she’d never be able to accept your husband who was obviously important to you. That’s also why she couldn’t “spell it out”.

No. 315776

If her ex-best friend didn't want to see her with a male then she should have actually communicated with OP if she actually cared. She's bitter because OP moved on. I bet she could tell OP had a crush and thrived off of that. When OP got with Nigel it probably was huge blow to her self-esteem.

No. 315829

Because she never even considered me her gf. It felt very one sided, I don't think she ever genuinely liked me that way, she just enjoyed my company. I literally asked her out on Valentine's day once and she was like "Why?" and said she had other things to do.
Exactly, I also went out with other people while we dated, but it never worked out and she didn't seem bothered. She also dated other people while we remained friends. I think she noticed I actually cared about this moid but didn't know what to do of it.

What are your favorite perfumes/body mists?

My go-to is Coco Mademoiselle. I've also harbored a longtime attachment to Love's Baby Soft as it was my first fragrance I was bought as a child. My mom got me Wind Song when I was little and I couldn't stand the smell. I've wanted to experiment with making my own perfume. The scent that I hate the most is freesia and I can't believe how much its used in fragrances.

Has anyone tried the Sailor Moon perfumes? Much of their anniversary merch seems to be all hype.

IRL I’ve never smelled it on another human, but to be fair I’m a software engineer so I’m lucky if people even wear deodorant. Both Aventus and Aventus for Her just have that je ne sais quoi. It’s not a scent that turns heads in my experience, no one is stopping you to ask you what you’re wearing which I prefer. Tbh I feel like the average person likes most scents simply because its smell is “perfume”/”cologne”, and this isn’t that. It is a surprisingly fruity scent but I think that’s what makes it work? They’re bright but the base notes darken and mature it. Her stays brighter for longer but is sort of the same genre despite the floral notes. Hard to explain. I also don’t think I would like either of them if I smelled them on a man, whatever the hell that means. It’s kind of a by me and for me smell and I love it.

Nonnas, please recommend me a perfume for an older woman. I need a nice gift for my grandma's birthday, but unfortunately I myself know nothing about perfume. All I know that she likes classy stuff, think Coco Chanel and all that. So I need something classy and refined but doesn't scream old lady perfume. The price should reasonable too, around 100$ range, maybe a bit higher.

In my opinion Rеve d'Infini Lalique is a good fit for women of all ages but I can definitely envision an older lady wear it just because it has that very feminine, floral and very slightly powdery vintage-esque smell. It's quite an inoffensive scent and I think she would enjoy it.

I really miss the emphasis on DIY. Of course people still do it, but it’s a much smaller percentage of the overall community. Even if much of it was god awful, it somehow felt very… cozy? wholesome? for all these weird girls to be teaching themselves a new skill just to try and emulate a very niche subculture from the other side of the world, squinting at grainy GLB scans all the while. Making your own sock toppers was like a rite of passage. Actual lolita pieces were so scarce that people who couldn’t sew were desperate enough to commission the likes of talia_speaks for badly made headdresses. Remember that drama? I hardly remember what it was about, just that it was scandalous at the time.
There are more resources available now than ever before but it feels like people keep making the same mistakes. Everyone I know who actually knew what they were doing either stopped posting or moved away from lolita.

ngl I take a gross satisfaction out of washing filthy secondhand. Getting a jsk that's possibly gone over a decade without cleaning and finally getting the grime off feels nice
kind of a late reply but this I love this era of Baby too! I love how sweet from that era was very simple yet cute and it's one of the easiest styles to build a wardrobe in imo. I like that there's less focus on fullsets of matching jsk, kc and otks like with modern AP and you can get away with a white blouse or solid colored socks easier. Picrel is probably my most worn JSK, it's so versatile and easy to dress up or down with all the detachable pieces. And the print is subtle enough that I wear it blouseless as a normie sundress

I'm in the market for new blouses, or dickys even. any recommendations for some, especially if purchased with the last year and recommend (cuz quality can change a lot)? colors do not necessarily matter, i can dye if i need to, but if they come in sax, lavender, red, white, mauve, or taupe colors that's a perk. short and long sleeves. don't need to be brand.

Not a sweetfag myself but I share your sentiment. I've always really liked this kind of sweet as opposed to ott AP coords. And I feel the same way about classic. I love the minimalist look that old school Victorian Maiden used to do. There's something slightly high fashion about it to me. I really like weird pieces that don't always fit a petticoat, they add variety and feel like an actual wardrobe to me. Obviously, not everyone is into that and it's fine less competition on the second hand market kek but I've already had some newbie taobao itas try to give me concrit and tell me that I'm not even wearing lolita.

Oh god anon thank you, your words mean a lot to me! You mean the Tragedy of the Conqueror video? I remember posting it, it was a pretty good analysis, especially that there's a small amount of LoA-related conted on yt. I'm always happy whenever someone decides to watch this film, I'm glad my ramblings can sometimes encourage people to give it a try. Please share your thoughts/feelings in the movie thread when you watch it! I'm always interested what people have to say about it, even when they don't like it. In my case, it only grows on me with time. The more I learn about movie making, the more I appreciate it from a technical standpoint, and the feelings it evoked in me the first time are just as strong now. I remember reading some comment, don't remember where, where a person said that they watch this movie from time to time to remind themselves who they are, and I think it captures this feeling pretty accurately. Well I never really fit in, but this movie, and the book it was based on and T.E. Lawrence as a historical figure, inspire me to embrace it, to not forget about my own ideals and values even if that means I may have it harder than others in certain areas, to not be afraid to have dreams, even if they don't seem possible at the moment, to go my own way even if that means being alone, and to strive for something higher than just the material things, that's the kind of life I see worth living, even if the ending isn't always happy.

Is this an improvement? I have a nose like picrel and while from the front it looks cute, I absolutely hate how large it looks on the side. I feel like it would boost my confidence having a better side profile, but at the same time I’m not sure if the risks are worth it.

A fellow pointy nose anon! Mine is the same where it’s narrow looking straight on but from the side it’s like a huge triangle with big open nostrils. I kinda like it but definitely throws off my profile more than it already is, I’d look for other options if that’s the only thing you think is wrong. Realize most people have some sort of “ugly” feature especially in a side profile where most are comparing themselves to some American girl with delicate features. And I’ve noticed people obsessed with side profile are ones that have procedures done for it anyway.

Please feel free to vent or ask for advice in this thread pertaining to sexual abuse or harassment, etc

I'm looking for advice on how to build a healthy sexual relationship with my partner after my bad past. We've been married two years and he's fantastic. But my libido is very low and I have a feeling it might be tied to poor sexual relationships I'd had before. Starting at 8 years old and then on out. I'm not really bothered by the past but I think my mind is instantly associating sex with bad times, which shouldn't be the case since my husband is lovely. But my brain instantly is telling me that I dont want to do this or that its just a hassle. Often times when we begin fooling around I get stomach aches that will go away basically instantly when we stop, like he can tell I'm not in the mood so we wont continue. I never thought much of it, I always thought it was just something I ate. But today I figured out maybe it could be anxiety related.

I just want to be able to have a normal sex life with him where we can fool around and have fun, but I feel so bad for having something -wrong- with me. If anons have any advice i'd love to hear. I'm too poor for a therapist and I've scoured the internet for advice as well

you don't have to feel guilty. it is a modern form of abuse. I think you could read self help books for abuse victims, if you can't afford therapy. it doesn't matter if there was physical touch because it still is sexual exploitation.

No. 315275

i don’t know if this is the right thread or not for this but it’s been extremely heavy on my mind the last year and a half.
i was introduced to sex when I was 5 or 6. I had a friend who was a lot older than me (12 or 13, the daughter of my parents friends) she had come over to my house with her parents and we were in the basement which at the time was like my play room. She had asked me if I wanted to play house and that she would be the daddy, then she put a toy in her pants to pretend to have a penis. She laid me down on the couch and acted as if we were having sex.
I don’t remember much besides going upstairs and telling my parents what we were doing. Her parents immediately took her home and I was left feeling confused and guilty as if I had done something wrong and we were in trouble.
a little while after that incident I remember having had a sleepover with a different girl who was also a little bit older than me and we licked each others vaginas. I can’t remember any other details like who initiated it, and I’m scared that it was me because I had already been introduced to sexual behaviour at that point. I stopped going to her house soon after and I don’t know if she ever told her parents but mine never knew.
I don’t even know what the point of writing this was but it’s something I have literally never told a soul in my life. Not a therapist, best friend or partner. Not even my parents spoke to me about what happened after it happened, I just knew it was wrong from the way they were acting. I hope writing it can help take it off my mind

No. 315350

Good this thread is bumped again I forgot about it and didn’t know where to vent this.
I‘m not fully sure about it but I think I have been way too easygoing with boundaries in the past. I had a bad introduction to sex in the first place way too young, my first bf did stuff without my consent all the time and raped me on a few occasions but I never wanted to see it this way due to wanting to be a cool girl who doesn’t feel bothered by violations like this and be above it, so I kind of disassociated when things like this were done to me and often just went with it trying to not feel hurt. (still have problems due to this today). Thing is when I look back, almost every guy I‘ve been with always took the initiative with sexual acts and I just went with it even if they were going too far. Now there was another dude I used to make out with sometimes who was a bit too audacious and pushy for my taste, so I never slept with him even if we got along otherwise. Turns out he’s a predatory pos and my gut feeling was right but I ignored all the red flags which were definitely there (trying to get sexual when I was trying to sleep without us making out beforehand, groping me in public when I told him to stop and other occasions). But I brushed it away as no big deal when I should have told him to btfo at the first shady move he did. Scumbags like this get away with it so often in the first place because they just try and go for it and have sucess due to their sheer audacity and self esteem, it’s disgusting. I don’t want to let assholes like this push my boundaries ever again they don’t deserve affection.
late and don’t know anything about repressed memories but anon it was your first time smoking weed, it can be really weird and anxiety inducing. Sounds like you got some sort of panic attack

My girlfriend was physically abused by her parents and SA by her foster parent. She's otherwise nice and lovely to be around and I love her but she breaks down when we talk about her past.
I know how much it devastates her to know what happened to her and I'm really scared of that affecting our sex life. We have sex and she seems to really enjoy it but I just don't know what she's keeping inside and I'm scared she's just bearing through it to make me happy.
Despite how upset she is when we talk about it, she trusts me and is pretty open when we discuss it.
I want to get her therapy but I don't really know what to do. We talked about getting her therapy and she agrees. I hope some of you have experience with that. I just don't know what to do or how the rest of this relationship is going to pan out because of that.
I also just want to know how to support her.

I honestly hate seeing this thread as i felt low after the replies I gotten when I opened up about my sexual abuse and manipulation… Luckily I am getting therapy for the truma and my social anxiety.

I'm done with being manipulated into having sex when I dont feel comfortable, having guys force themselves on me just because i'm easy and fun. And I hate being seen as an awful person for letting it happen even when i fought back, it's shits like that which makes it so difficult for me to have female friendship without someone backstabbing me.

Hopefully I don't look at this thread again and move pass that low in my life.
