DesuArchive & RBT have been restored after the host's storage failed. Missed posts/images will be restored from backup soon. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
RebeccaBlackTech search should now be completely fixed.

Lolita confessions thread

We haven't had one of these in a while but we're practically overrun with unpopular opinion threads so here goes

I didn't get a proper blouse until 7-8 or so years into being a lolita because I'd just do OPs, jsk+cardigan like pic related, or cutsew+skirt for casual. It's only been in the past 5 years or so that I've found blouses that I like enough to buy and coordinate with JSKs, but I still heavily internalize that "dress over shirt = bad" and think it looks dumb 75% of the time, especially if the blouse doesn't "blend" with the JSK to look like it's one piece instead of two.
