10 Day Lolita Challenge Day 5

♥ 5 songs that inspire you in Lolita

For today’s challenge I will be listing five songs that somehow inspire me in Lolita and why. This took me a while since my music taste changes so fast and so much! But here are five songs that inspire me.

Expensive by Todrick Hall feat: Kim Chi, Willam, Alaska, Mariah & Laganja.
Ok first of all, this song is just badass. When the beat starts playing I just instantly feel the need to put on sunglasses and put up an ego from here to Tokyo. Also the lyrics really speaks to me in some places:

They like it cause I rock it with the right swag (damn)
But when they start to ask about the price tag
Tell 'em this shit's expensive

This speaks to me as a Lolita, I’m sure you can understand why. ;) Also not to mention that this song is from the visual concept album Straight Outta Oz, which is based on the Wizard of Oz and that is just so freaking cool!

Marina and the Diamonds: Primadonna.
I really love the melody, beat and sort of weird lyrics of this song. Perhaps another element of why I like it so much is that I once rewrote the text to fit a more Lolita-esque situation. There once was a time I wrote new texts to songs to turn them into Lolita parodies or just Lolita songs and this is one of them. I still can't listen to the text without hearing:

Sweet Lolita girl, yeah
I want all the dresses in the world
I can't help that I need them all
The spring collection, summer, winter fall
People say I'm kinda difficult
But it's really not only my fault
Saving money can be really hard
Luckily I've got my credit card
Sweet Lolita girl

W. A. Mozart Eine kleine Nachtmusik, K 525 Allegro

This piece by Mozart is of course very well known, but don't you think it's a perfect song to get dressed up too? I can totally imagine a YouTube timelapse of dressing up in Lolita to this piece! I listen to it very regularly.

West Side Story: I Feel Pretty

I've never been overtly fond of West Side Story, although I've come to appreciate it more over time. This song however is, in my opinion, how every girl should feel once she dresses up in Lolita: like the most beautiful girl in the world, to be envied by others even.

I feel pretty
Oh, so pretty
I feel pretty and witty and gay
And I pity
Any girl who isn't me today
See the pretty girl in that mirror there
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face
Such a pretty dress
Such a pretty smile
Such a pretty me!

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu: Harajuku Iyahoi

It's been a while since I've really been into a Kyary song, but this song is just so catchy! And sometimes that all you need: cute and catchy! I even do workouts to this song regularly, haha! Also the outfit are really sweet.

Do you have any songs that fit your Lolita aesthetic? Why do you like them?

Thank you for reading! ~☆~


  1. Dayum, Todrick Hall's "Expensive" really nails Lolita down. I want an Mc Melody Doll and Todrick Hall collab now! :P

    For me every outfit has its own playlist. I love music, always have, and I get really twitchy if I go too long without listening to anything, even casually or passively. But yeah, some people have moodboards for their Lolita outfits - mine have songs or playlists. So I'm not sure if I'd manage to limit myself to 5, although the challenge is pretty tempting. :D

    1. Wow, every outfit!? That is amazing!
      I'd love to see some examples!
