What the hell is Lolita?

That is exactly what I said ... when i saw Lolita fashion.
According to Wikipedia -- Lolita fashion is "is a fashion subculture originating in Japan that is primarily influenced by Victorian clothing as well as costumes from the Rococo period. Lolita has made this into a unique fashion by adding gothic and original design elements to the look. From this, Lolita fashion has evolved into several different sub styles and has created a devoted subculture in Japan."
In short, its  knee length skirts or dressed, big headdress, ruffled/lous blouses, petticoat, knee high socks or stockings and high heels/platform shoes.
I'm kind of digging this look of youth-teenage-school girl inspired fantasies...
