“A friend of mine found this old photograph in a shoe box in his Grandmother’s attic. On the back was written… Aunty Mary and her “friend” Ruth, 1910. I wonder if those quotation marks imply what I think they do, by the look on their faces, I would say they do” - source: http://goo.gl/LgD6n

Agreed!

I wish I remembered where I found this so I could give proper credit - thank you!  Imo this is a very interesting insight into the past and…perhaps in some ways, how I’d like to think of dolly kei: discarding the youthful innocence that’s implied by Lolita fashion culture and taking those first steps into womanhood.  The fact that the owners of Grimoire are a married couple, combined with a brief observation tat most dollies stateside seem to be girls in their twenties and not highschoolers; I personally have felt a lot more comfortable stepping into dolly kei at the age of……twenty-five. (gasp!  Sorry, quarter-life crisis.)  Thoughts?

I find myself not as into lolita either as I get older. I still like the aesthetic but I tend to be going into more of a 1920s through 1950s retro and mori girl styles. I blame working at Bettie Page for reigniting my high school era interest in 1950s style, but I look damn good in it.

Fashion designer Lucile, Lady Duff-Gordon in a cutting-edge evening dress, 1910
The press portrayed Lucile and her husband as heartless aristocrats who bribed the crew in their lifeboat to ignore people freezing in the water after Titanic sank, supposedly because they were afraid that the lifeboat would be swamped.  This story is generally considered today to be the result of a couple checks taken in the wrong context.  Read more here.
