While I was at my uncle's house for a family gathering after church (having stripped off my JSK for comfort so that I was wearing my underskirt and blouse), my great aunt turned to me.
My Great Aunt: "Let me see what you're wearing... Do girls really still dress like that?"
My Aunt: "Not really. But Emily does. You should see the dress she had over that earlier; it's so pretty!"
I love that my family has gotten used to me wearing Lolita for special events and that they support my decision. I also love that they've fully accepted my bonkers style as a thing about me. I just felt that was worth sharing in case anyone's reading this blog and wondering if their family will ever accept their style.
