Outfit: Cross-embroidered shirt dress (Oasap) and double-layered chiffon skirt (American Apparel).
The first time I saw this dress, I immediately thought of Dolores Haze––her cropped 50's frocks, braided crowns, and lollipops. I regret the fact that I didn't buy a pair of heart-shaped sunglasses for this post. Then the Lolita connection would have been a lot more obvious and I wouldn't have had to explain myself like I am right now.
I also thought of all of the ridiculous fangirls at the Beatles concert in Shea Stadium in '65. Everyone always makes fun of them, but honestly I can't think of anything better than thousands of girls screaming their heads off for the Beatles whilst wearing some of the most adorable collared dresses I've ever seen. It's kind of a twisted fantasy of mine to have been there with all of them, though I don't think this will ever happen unless time machines miraculously become a thing.
And here are some photos, just for reference (all via Google Images).
