So my boyfriend and I went to (read: I dragged my boyfriend to) our local Sanrio store today for a Hello Kitty 35th birthday celebration. I wore the following AP cutsew:

Emo kid #1: Oh, a lolita outfit!
Pretentious emo kid: That's not a REAL lolita outfit.
Emo kid #1: It's not?
Pretentious emo kid: No. A lolita outfit is only one piece. Like a dress. That's a shirt and a skirt. It's probably from Bodyline.
Emo kid #2: What's Bodyline?
Pretentious emo kid: It's a brand from Japan that makes fake lolita clothes.
Emo kid #2: Oh, okay.
Then they left. Even my boyfriend was laughing.
