The Anatomy of a Lolita
This took forever to finish because I was not happy with the diagram. I wanted to draw something that wasn’t too outdated (like many currently available online). I wanted a diagram that reflects a basic co-ordinate relevant to today’s standards.
If you are a new lolita, please use this as a check list to creating your your first outfit. Never EVER forget your petticoat!

Guys guys guys we really need to make this one thing clear

One of the main differences is that dandyism was also an intellectual movement that stressed self-improvement in order to become a living work of art; later in the 19th century, it was closely associated with the Aesthetic, Decadent, and Symbolist Movements.  Foppery never had any intellectual underpinnings, but because dandies were considered flamboyant by 19th century standards, they were often perceived as fops anyway.
