Lolita Level Up Quiz 2.0

Hey everyone! Caro over at FYeahLolita has updated a quiz originally done by Parfait Doll - the Lolita Level Up Quiz, Version 2.0! It gauges your 'Lolita level' but of course, is only really for fun. I thought I'd do it and see what my score it! You should do it too! Let me know in the comments, I'd love to see your result! Caro mentions that you can interpret the questions as you please, so I'll elaborate on how I interpret the questions!

So what was my score?

61-80 Experienced Lolita
61-80 points is the realm of an experienced Lolita! You've probably been active in the fashion for a number of years, have a fairly large and diverse wardrobe, and have attended (and hosted!) your fair share of Lolita events. You're most likely well-known within your local, and online, communities. You're probably practically an expert on the fashion and have probably introduced, or at least guided, a few friends along the right path in the fashion. Your next step is most likely to do a closet cleaning or some wardrobe organization because you probably have a few years of accumulated clothes. 

Yay! The closet cleaning part is kind of right - I'm determined now that, when I buy new dresses, they fit my style totally and I don't just buy them because they're cute or a good price. I want a fully coherent Lolita wardrobe and I hope my trip to Japan will help that majorly.

If you like, please copy and paste to find out your own Lolita score! I made sure to give Caro credit, she has done such a great job revising and updating the quiz!
