The notion of shirololita (lolita entirely in white) has popped up again recently, in leu of the Old School revival. Something that heartened me, as shiro lolita was the first style I really loved. In fact, my first ever lolita outfit was entirely Shiro.
Infact, here's a picture of it:

At the time I was very much inspired specifically by this image of the JRock band "BLOOD":
Mostly because it was something different to me. I'd never seen gothic clothes in white before, and absolutely loved it. It was so angelic, and still suitied my gothic sensebilities.
My other style icon at that time was gabriel from Constantine...
Shiro Punk? Or something. At the time, New Rock boots company had released limited edition white, patent boots. I spent many an hour online until I forund a pair for auction on Ebay.
And you know what? That was my first ever ebay purchase!
Since then I've gathered photos of gothic/shiro pieces and outfits and felt like showing you some of my favourites.
