The Frills of July

Knowing that I'm moving away soon (bye bye local Petticoat Mafia ;___; ) I wanted to get some frilly action into this summer so I've done a couple of loli meets ^^

(This one's actually from June but I wanted to include it here since i forgot to put it in June's round up) 
Cutsew - Primark
JSK - Bodyline
OTKs - Primark
Shoes - F+F @ Tesco
(Those shoes may be pretty but they hurt my feet like hell T__T)

Here comes the real first meet of July ^^'
Pretty picture of us ^^ some idiots were sat opposite trying to hit people with their little gun thingys, as if they'd have managed to get through the poof! Dumbasses!

JSK- Bodyline (I love this dress so, so much)
Cardi - Primark
OTKs - Freebie
Shoes - F+F @ Tesco (Those beautiful devil shoes again @__@ )

And the most recent adventures of the Petticoat Mafia xD
A day of Teahousing (there was a lot of Teddy Bear Tea), Maccy D-ing and general derping xD
Oh the beautiful derping! 
 Gonna miss you lot so, so much when I move ;___;

Bow - handmade
Cardi - M&S (not really part of the outfit, it was worn for warmth xD )
Cutsew - Primark (cannot stress how much I love this!)
Skirt - DOL: Cat in the Window  (I have no shame in saying I LOVE this skirt!!!)
Socks - freebies
Shoes - eBay (Thank you wifey ^^)

While still on the subject of frills, EGL announced a ban on selling and buying replicas within the community so now I just want to share my opinion on replicas.
(Come at me brand whores!)
Yeah that's right! I even have a list of replicas I want to commission from Oo Jia!
Let's face it, as much as I'd like to own the real Night of Masquerade, Scent of Rapunzel, Midsummer Nights Dream etc, I will probably never be able to afford them. So why get a job and save up you might wonder? 
1# I feel guilty when I buy too many things in the sales, what makes you think I won't be as guilty as hell if I spent my hard earned cash on one dress?
2# Sizing. This doesn't necessarily apply to me but in some cases you just can't find your dream dress in your size. Brands only carry certain sizes and just because you don't fall into those brackets shouldn't be able to you dream dress, even if it isn't the real thing. I like a dress for the dress itself, I don't mind if it's not the real thing - I ADORE my Cat in the Window REPLICA! 
3# Rare prints/ prints that are not longer released. So you missed out on the real thing, and you can't get it second hand either because no one wants to part with it or you find it but it's so expensive you can't afford it- I'd happily have a replica
Please STOP saying that it's ripping the brands off, they wouldn't have made that money anyway because they either only released that many of the item or didn't make it in those sizes anyway - everyone should be able to feel like a princess, don't give them shit because they wear replicas and don't hate on Oo Jia/ Dream of Lolita for helping us get our dream dresses

Stay happy and frilly and remember that after the print has been out for 3 years a replica is more than OK unless it has the brand's name or logo on it in England!
