Short answer: Everything!
Long answer: Well, the short answer really did kind of sum it up. Mostly though I take a lot of inspiration from whoever I’m having a lolita crush on at the moment, and whoever that is changes over time and has ranged all over the place though generally in the sweet-classic end of the lolita spectrum, as I’m not that into gothic or ouji.
Fanny Rosie will forever be one of my lolita style icons.
Generally, when I cruise other blogs, CGL, livejournal and tumblr I see a wide variety of things and some just stick with me. I like seeing how people coord pieces and develop their personal styles. I honestly wish there was more lolita content to browse everyday!
I don’t tend to draw much inspiration for lolita from other fashion styles; even though I know there is a lot of overlap with other styles of dress I feel that lolita is distinct enough that I don’t tend to import ideas into it. But within the lolita sphere pretty much anything can count as inspiration!
