Lolita blog Carnival: Five books every lolita should read

Kamikaze girls by Novala Takemoto

This book is on my list simply because it is the lolita book. Novala has a great writing style and the characters are very likable. To me this book taugth  lot about what lolita is all about and I absolutely love it. If you haven't read it yet please, go do it now. And then remember to watch the movie too.

The little princess by Francis H. Burnett

Little princess is such a charming tale about how good behaviour and kindness can triumph over almost anything. Sara's characer has charmed readers for generations and of all ages. It truly is classic that everyone, not just lolitas should read.

The queen of fashion- what Marie Antoinette wore to the revolution by Caroline Weber

Now, this is in a way a biography but it is a lovely one and a must read for outfit inspiration and othervise too. After all Marie Antoinette is such an icon in the loli world that knowing more about her fashion choices should be interesting.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

Oh look another classic. Well personally I find classic literature very inspiring and Jane Eyre is one of the most inspiring among them. It is a very traditional novel as it has three stages but it only adds to it's charm.

It's vintage Darling by Christa Weil 

Okay this is the odd one here. Yes it's about another fashion style and yes it has nothing to do with lolita. BUT it has a lot to do with clothing making it supremely useful. Need to get a tea stain out of you 300 euro dress? This book tells you how. Want some vintage flair to your wardrobe? Go no further, this one will help you with that too. It has everything from telling fabrics apart to cleaning many kinds of different stains and history of 20th century fashion. Trust me it's positively unputdownable.
