Hey Lolita Heyyyy…Hey Lolita Heyyy, Lana Del Rey sings in her dreamy, seductive voice in her very very underrated song Lolita from her album Born To Die. The concept of Lolita goes back to 1955 and Vladimir Nabokov’s esteemed novel of the same name. To follow were two movies portraying the concept of a young girl and an older man. The idea is salacious, forbidden, and therefore incredibly intriguing and mysterious. I myself have had a fascination with the Lolita concept from the book and movies for quite some time. It’s almost like the girl version of Peter Pan, the concept of never growing up and being a little girl forever. It’s alluring with all of its forbidden and socially incorrect aura. For some people, this fascination with forbidden love can even manifest itself into a kink commonly referred to as DDLG (daddy dom/little girl). Accordingly, if you would like to learn more about this phenomenon then you can find plenty of useful resources on the My Little Princess website where you can discover what is meant by ‘playing with dad’s shoes‘ and much more. Going back to Lolita though, the 1997 Movie starring Dominique Swain, Melanie Griffith, and Jeremy Irons (I have a big crush on him, duh have you heard his English accent) is no stranger to me.

This year for Halloween I decided to go as one of my favorite frilly sock, heart shaped sunglasses wearing characters, Lo… Dolores… Dolly… Lolita. I went for one of my favorite looks from the movie that to be honest will be worn anyway not as a costume because how CUTE is this set!? A little 50s with flair seeing as it’s a crop top set paired with iconic saddle shoes and frilly socks, once I put on my red lipstick and heart shaped glasses I was set in full character and it could not have felt more fun. For those of you who don’t think it’s so, innocence can be very sexy. So no this is not your typical “I wanna look hot” kinda Halloween costume. It’s cute, it’s sexy, it’s even “hot” in it’s own right. I’m never one to conform to what the social norm is and Halloween was going to be no exception. A fashion forward costume (that can be worn again as a cute outfit ;) is always going to win in my book over a quintessentially “sexy” any day. I hope you all had a Happy Halloween! ???
