Honey MV and Mainstream Lolita in General

A recent music video by 郭書瑤 called "Honey" has the Taiwanese lolitas talking! Mostly it was posted because she is wearing lolita in some parts of the MV, but I think that the MV in general is enjoyable for lolitas (particularly sweet lolitas!)

Many delectable sweets are shown throughout, which is what I am most interested in ;D

The video is posted after the jump! See if you can recognize the dress ;)

I could not find the apron version, but it is this print by Bodyline

in the blue colorway!

Every time lolita shows up in the mainstream, there always seems to be the debate of whether it's a good thing or not... Personally I feel that as long as it is worn correctly or is not labeled lolita it is fine. I just don't like misrepresentation!

The most memorable "Mainstream Lolita Done Wrong" incident I can remember is Lil Mama's outfit with AP's Fruit Parlor

It may not be lolita, but she did not call it Lolita Fashion, so I feel that it is OK. There is no rule stating that Brand must be coordinated a certain way! Lil Mama has since worn a couple more AP pieces in non-lolita coords, but I think she makes it work in her own way :)

More recently Paramore has also had a MV with a Bodyline lolita dress in it.

which I think looks lovely!

So I cannot seem to understand why some people are completely against any form of lolita showing up in mainstream media. If you are going to rage, rage at people who go on TV to "educate" people about Lolita Fashion and do it wrong
