 ”A small Greek temple was moved from Ionia to Louveciennes, on a summer night, on a moonbeam with its lacteal color, and deposited gently on the grass at the edge of the precipice” was said about the music pavillion of madame du Barry because of  the purity and simplicity of the lines.
Designed by architect Claude Nicolas Ledoux for the Comtesse du Barry, the music pavilion was inaugurated September 2, 1771.

Classic not-necessarily-Lolita subculture?

You know how there’s gothic stuff, like gothic music, gothic clothes, gothic subculture, etc? And Gothic Lolita is a combination of the goth stuff, and the defining aspects of Lolita, so if you take the Lolita out of Gothic Lolita, you still have Goth, which is still a thing, and Gothic Lolita is a subset of that thing? … well, what I like is, if you could do the same with Classic Lolita… a Classic thing that isn’t dependent on the “lolita” part. But as far as I know, such a thing doesn’t exist… If you know it does, please tell me where to find it!!
