I was going to wait a bit before uploading this, but I changed my mind
For some reason, the '20s through the '40s are starting to be a major influence for me. I blame the music. I've been listening to far too much swing and blues music lately... as you can probably tell... >3>
But... yay for more retro Lolita fashion? The Rococo and Victorian aesthetics are great and all, but pretty much everything I see on brand Lolita sites is starting to look the same; no one seems interested in pulling from other influences-- like the '20s! The Roaring '20s might not seem the ideal era to pull influences from, but this period lends itself surprisingly well to Lolita fashion. I love the idea of utilizing elaborate beading, chiffon ruffles, and more flamboyant accesories (please excuse the poorly drawn sunflowers ;_; ).
On another note... I don't actually recommend swing dancing while wearing Lolita.
