From the Mods:
Summer's just around the bend,  and boy are we ready for it!  Break out your ginghams, try some picnic-y or country lolita, or just swap out your heavy clothes for something a bit lighter. Put up those parasols, lolis, here comes the sun! As always, feel free to post in our LiveJournal community.
--Upcoming Meetup: Our Annual Hogle Zoo and Grand America Tea on June 5th, starting at 11:30 am! Celebrate u_loli's birthday with animals, tea, and a fun small gift exchange! Zoo admission is $10, Tea charge is $30 (actual price is $20, but as we went over that last time we are charging $30 and refunding any overcharge). Note: Grand America tea does serve non-tea beverages such as hot cocoa, etc.

When and how did you find Lolita? 
Wow, I feel so old now! I think it was my second year of college (about 3 years ago or so). I found a video of some Swedish lolis on youtube. I was lucky enough to find reliable sites like egl on Livejournal and lolitafashion.com. I loved the idea of modesty and cuteness, and since I've always loved old-fashioned clothing I was totally hooked!
Any ambitions or dreams to share?
Well, there's this one where I fly...no, just kidding. ;-) Ambitions...I just want to be a teacher, eventually find a guy who's willing to put up with me and love it, and to be a great mother and wife. As for dreams...someday I'd like to write a book, be in a play, swim with a mermaid tale and sing with some awesome group. Not asking too much, am I? XD
What's something unique about you?
I don't like sweet cream cheese. Seriously, cheesecake, frosting...I can taste if it has cream cheese in it. Blech. Savory stuff like dips and sauces, I don't mind it. Weird, huh?
What's one thing you'd like your fellow Lolitas in this comm to know?
I'd like them to know not to be afraid to come to me with questions. I'm not a total expert, but I'm not scary and I love helping people. They should expect an honest opinion, but always with kindness. I'm a really nice person at heart, and we were all new to lolita once.
What's one item you're lusting after for your Lolita wardrobe?
Just one?! There's a purse from Innocent World I need soon. I have a passion for their book purses, and they just came out with a new rose print one. I want it in white. No, I will have it in white! Someday!
Hope to see you at out next meet up!
