Hey dolls! I haven't posted about lolita in a while, so here's something for you! I know that the reason a lot of people don't get into lolita is because of the cost. Here, I have put together a coord to help you know what to spend money on and what not.
In the first image, I am wearing the basics of my coordinate, and the things you should invest the most money in. I'm wearing a blouse and skirt from Bodyline, as well as a Bodyline petticoat. Since Bodyline petticoats aren't very fluffy and have to be layered, I'm also wearing a ruffly skirt that I made underneath that makes it poofier. Since I buy from the kids section, everything is a lot cheaper; The blouse was $16, the skirt was $21, and the petticoat was $12. I bought a blouse with removable long sleeves so that it warlike two blouses in one! In the second picture, I'm wearing just regular frilly ankle socks that you can get at your local clothing store for cheap. I'm also wearing white heels that I bought at a local store that go with a lot of my dresses.

So, as you can see, the only things I truly invested money on for this coordinate were the blouse, skirt, and petticoat. This shows that you can be a lolita even if you are on a tight budget! I really hope you like this post, please let me know if it helps! Have a fabulous day and see you next time! ♡
