There is not so many sense of discomfort about this style, because Hime-kei was delivered from Gal style.
However, regarding Lolita fashion, its style and history is completely different to Gal fashion.
For girls wearing Gal fashion, Lolita fashion seems like cosplay.
And Gal fashion is well received by male. Meanwhile, Lolita fashion fills the self-satisfaction of the person who puts it on.
Both of these two fashions are much difference to each other, so had never mixed together until now.
