The lighthearted, playful Lolita style is best represented by the idea of the girly woman: while she still remains perfectly adult, her personality has kept the endless curiosity of childhood and a pinch of innocence intact. Joyful and keen to experiment, she goes through life without neglecting the “serious matters”, but letting her fantasy run free: her everyday life is full of funny, well-tempered details that bring more light into her days. In fashion, the girly woman masters the art to meld childlike femininity with imagination. Short dresses with funny bows, applications in form of flowers, animals, and caricatures, as well as all possible creative accessories will make her quickly happy. Glitter, diadems, fanciful jewelry, and fruity-sweet fragrances become definitively her objects of desire: She is namely the true and only princess of her own fairy tale world!
