Lolita Fashion - Cute femme look
There is a recent Japanese fashion statement being made by teenage girls, particularly Japanese girls. It is considered a subculture of gothic but it focuses upon dressing in Victorian style or as a little girl, hence the “Lolita” name. I think this style is so cute and one can buy these darling sissy style outfits. Be careful, many of these outfits are only sized for teen girls and are either petite or junior in size. There are some sellers on ebay that will make similar outfits in any size.
Lolita Fashion is the term used for a young lady or man that dresses in clothes reminiscent of Victorian dolls. Frills, lace, dresses, skirts, petticoats, and head-dresses are all very common with Lolita fashion. Accessories most Lolitas carry around are teddy bears and parasols. Make-up is used sparingly, save for some cases in the Gothic Lolita look, and the idea is to look innocent and cute -- so skin isn't flaunted or shown unless it has to be. Lolitas aim to look like Victorian dolls, NOT French maids, so there's no need to flash a lot of skin.
If you do internet searches, look for “Sweet Lolita” or “Gothic Lolita”. I attach a few key sites I have found. The pictures here are from the cosmates.com and club-lolita.deviantart.com sites.

You tube, some of my faves, but there are others too
Normally I like to put my own sissy pictures on my blog exclusively but these Lolita pictures are so cute. I think I may have to include them here. They are such an inspiration.
