Anonymous: hey, So I was wondering if you know of any places for plus size lolita AND cute shoes for size 11. I'm getting so discouraged on the shoes. I can't ever find cute shoes or lolita styled shoes higher than 8.5! Please help, I really am thinking this style might not be for my body but When I see your blog I get some hope...

Hey friend! I (K) have size 11 feet so I’m about to help you out friend.

First of all, if you’re looking to spend the least amount possible I recommend payless. Sometimes they have workable shoes that you can just put with an outfit that doesn’t focus on the shoes. You can also get shoe clips to help. Also ALWAYS post a WTB on the facebook lolita sales groups. I recommend this one and this one.

Next I’d recommend Bodyline. The company is a bit skeezy but their shoes go up to a 27 which fits an 11 in many styles. Check reviews to see if they run big or small. You might have to make some edits to them (I had to remove a buckle on one of mine but it had 2 so it was fine and didn’t turn out noticeable).

Antaina sells custom sized shoes. I have never gone all the way through with an order but I found their customer service likable and they have tonssss of options all custom sizes. They’re the priciest of these options though because shipping is out of this worlddddd. So I recommend getting their shoes second hand if you can. If you have money to dedicate to it though I’ve heard good-ish things about them and their sizing. Again, always read like a million reviews of the company as a whole, and read a few of the exact shoes you want.

So basically, you will not find brand shoes in size 11. You will not be wearing Angelic Pretty tea parties anytime soon. BUT you can definitely find super cute lolita shoes for an “affordable” (by lolita standards) price.

As far as buying plus size lolita (which I forgot was something I was supposed to be answering here) check this post and this post. Also here is a list of indie brands that do custom sizes. Some of them require a shopping service so, again, research before you buy both the company and the products you want.

<3 good luck and don’t give up! You’re on your way.

-K

For @theprophetchuck who asked about box braids/twists in lolita! I would just treat it like any other type of hair and accessorize accordingly! Bows bonnets clippies etc. double buns would be cute ahh. I think painfullykawaii has or had braids and she’s lovely~

Today was a wonderful and lovely day! We had our first summer solstice meetup and pot luck with a bonus scavenger hunt! I’m almost to completion of my coordinate for my dress. I just need a short sleeve blouse for the hot weather but other than that it’s almost complete :D

We set out pot luck near a playground where little children with their parents are having fun in the sun. A few children called me Princess Snow White and of course I have to make them happy by saying hello to them. Also, we have a scavenger hunt that involves cute animals and funny. I hope that this summer the lolita community in my town will have more meet-ups this summer :D

Everyone pretend I didn’t just accidentally publish that ask and then delete it when I realized okay?

We got this submission and though they said we didn’t have to publish it I thought it had some interesting and beneficial information. I have changed some of the wording and spelling and stuff to just make sure there weren’t mistakes as far as I can tell (this was something they mentioned since they hadn’t spell checked it.) I have chosen to take their name off the submission in order to avoid people sending them negative messages if possible though. I hope you don’t mind my publishing it, I felt like I learned a lot from it though and I thought some of our followers may benefit from reading it as well. So this is Re: racism in America vs. Brazil. -K

Like the other anon, I’m also Brazilian. Our country has  similar racial dynamics with the US, since both countries had a history of colonization and slavery. The main difference lies in how people view “miscegenation”. This does not make our country “more” or “less” racist than yours and vice-versa. A common racist perception here is the idea of “whitening”, which means an incentive to “interracial” marriage in order to work toward the erasure of what are considered “black features” from the population. Of course this is bullshit, but this was the main reason behind the governmental incentives for European immigration in the early 20th century here. They actually wanted “white” people to outnumber the recently freed from slavery black people.
Nowadays racism in Brazil is tied to classism as well and prejudice based on skin color. When you’re “obviously” black skinned it is unfortunately harder to avoid racism, police harassment, and so on. When you have a lighter skin tone it becomes a matter of social class, which means if you display “ghetto looks” there’s a bigger change of someone harassing you (or crossing the street because they think you are a robber).
I’m Brazilian with German and Portuguese roots, so I hardly face any sort of racism anywhere here. Some tourists actually think I’m one of them and so on. The weirdest thing I’ve heard was an American friend surprised that I’m blonde. :P I’d never tag myself as a “person of color”.


This professor gives lectures on comparative studies of the racial dynamics in the US and Brazil, if any of you are interested: http://www.fflch.usp.br/sociologia/asag/ - Half of the articles are in English. :)


I’d like to reinforce that saying someone is “this or that race” based on their looks is an academically overcome concept and all serious sociologists will not accept phrenology and other “biological” definitions for race of any sort anymore. Race is a socially defined concept to categorize people and define social relations in a given society. As such, there isn’t really race, but there’s racism and people from groups seen as “lesser” have all the right to organize based on the empowerment of this identity.


- I thought I should add something else to this! while americans could argue I’m “latina”, but this do not have the same meaning here (here’s a geographical determination) and for all the dynamics I pointed out on the other message I don’t belong to any racial identity movements here. I can be an ally against racism, but not an active member, nor I can erase their identity by appropriating it. :3

thefancypantskid: Concepts of race and racial dynamics change a lot depending on time and place. Iran itself has many different groups of people and it's a bit erasing to put them all in the "people of color" box. When you do this, you risk ignoring disadvantaged groups in these countries.

This is also totally true. I think a lot of details are lost when we’re using sweeping statements and a lot of groups are erased and that is shitty and something I’m trying to learn how to stop doing without going off on an exceptions tangent.

If there is ever something we say on here that anyone feels like did not clearly outline specifically which groups we were talking about and/or erases groups that SHOULD be who we’re talking about please please feel free to send an ask like this. We will publish it to insure that our readers get as full a picture as possible.

Thank you. <3

thefancypantskid: on the other hand saying someone has a very "insert any country here" face and using this to determine their race can be really complicated. Most of the time is really hard to tell. I think this happens a lot when americans think portuguese or spanish people aren't white because some of them have a darker complexion. Race is a social construct, sometimes is based on looks but we should remember Irish people were considered "non white" in the 19th century.

I agree completely. There ARE features we associate with certain races but it should be remembered these are not always inherent across the board and they can be found in people outside of those racial groups.

Basically even if someone has a “____ face” or any other “racial feature” don’t assume. I did that once and was so off base I learned my lesson hard.

Anonymous: Iranian anon again! Man, you guys are so sweet. :D I really appreciate it and thank you so much!!

No problem! We are always willing to do what we can with what we know and, if nothing else, hopefully guide you toward someone who DOES know if we don’t.

Also A is currently without internet so I’m sure they’ll read up on what I wrote to you guys when they come back.
