So I'd like to take this chance to say thank you to people who have helped me along so far. Miss Caro-chan of F Yeah Lolita has been so incredibly useful and helpful with all of her guides for newly starting lolitas. I don't know what I would have done without such a cohesive well-written source for advice.
Next, I want to thank so many of the helpful posters and guides on EGL. Seeing such a large community of lolita girls (and boys ^_^) gathered online in one place is so awe inspiring and makes me feel less alone in the fashion.
The blogger Averie at the tumblr blog lolita-tips has also been a major help on various issues. Knowing that I can contact someone with an astute fashion sense if I get seriously stumped is a source of comfort, and I love what she does for the community.
Finally, I'd like to thank my lolita mentor Robin. She is an incredibly sweet girl in my local community who has been giving me help and advice since I joined the community and has helped me as I slowly refine and find my style.
