As a fan of architecture, I had been meaning to check out the Jiyu Gakuen Miyonichikan (自由学園明日館), an old school designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1921, for a while, and I finally managed to go last week. They have uncommon opening days for visits because they host a lot of weddings and meetings, so you need to check their calendar on their website. Anyway, like the nerd I am, I dressed up in the colours of the building. I posted the pictures of the building separately HERE. Outfit rundown: Hat: Vintage Cardigan: thrifted Fint Blouse: old FF21 Skirt: second-hand Mary Magdalene Bag: second-hand Axes Femme Shoes: second-hand Queen Bee Coat: Mary Magdalene Tights: Taobao from a long time ago Painting brooch: vintage Wood harp brooch: Zack Zack Seiffen Stamp cat brooch: Via Carousel Shiso earrings: I can't remember the artist from Design Festa

During Tsuyu (in June), we had a few non-rainy yet comfortable days before summer truly started, and it was the last time I wore lolita. I still have a few other lolita outfits from May in my backlog, but I'll post this one first to fit with the previous (and next) black and white outfits.
On that day, I visited two kissas and a bakery during my solo walk, but only one kissa allowed pictures (see my Instagram post): 喫茶室ミミタム (Kissashitsu Mimitam).
Skirt: old Juliette et Justine Blouse: vintage Cardigan: old Innocent World Belt: Axes Femme Shoes: Yosuke

Is Victorian times more sexist for women than mediveal? Or does 20th century media portray mediveal times more sexist than it is to differentiate itself from it?
I wouldn’t say it is more or less sexist it’s just that how this sexism is expressed depends specifically on the culture and specific time period. Women in Victorian times certainly looked back on the medieval times with ‘yikes, good thing we weren’t born back then!’ but that doesn’t mean they weren’t also oppressed and dismissed by their society.
It is also a bit of a misconception of pop culture that the Victorian and Edwardian times were the times of entirely straitlaced and repressed women who sat quietly doing needlework or fanning themselves.
The popular ideal of the Gibson Girl was that of the athletic, confident, and educated ‘new’ woman who could hold her own in a spirited conversation and who attended college, perhaps even holding a job before marriage.
Tumblr media
However, the Gibson Girl was not expected to have any political opinions or to associate herself with the suffragette movement, as this would be seen as offensive or offputting to the men she was expected to attract. At the same time, early 1900s culture depicted the Gibson Girl as openly flirtatious and even dismissive or mocking of men, rejecting suitors and reveling in their bumbling discomfort.
Tumblr media
She was supposed to be the quintessential independent and successful American young woman, but she was not supposed to violate gender norms or directly challenge men; in the end the Gibson girl was always expected to settle down, give up her career, and become a cheerful and doting wife and mother.
So basically it’s nuanced.
