Zorak in a Wig

Right now I'm very happy with my wardrobe! I have very few dresses/skirts left on my wishlist so this year I'd like to focus on filling out the skimpier parts of my closet like accessories. Comparing my closet to last year, I have a lot of my favorite retro/cutesy pieces but I'm slowly acquiring more intricate dresses as well. I'm interested in seeing the direction my closet is heading in!


BTSSB Coat, Meta Pop Swinger/Vintage Record

BTSSB Pas de Deux in the blue moon, Meta Melody Note

Meta Apple, Meta Girly Note

Angelic Pretty Lovely Marchen, Angelic Pretty Happy Girl (from Lucky Pack)

Meta Telephone, Angelic Pretty Honey Cake

AATP Gathered Chiffon, Innocent World Heidi

Angelic Pretty Fantasic Dolly, BTSSB Blooming Snow White

Angelic Pretty Schoolmate, Innocent World (Don't know the name of this one, I've removed the long sleeves it came with originally.)

Handmade from GLB pattern based on AP's Angelic School OP, Angelic Pretty Classic Melody

Angelic Pretty Dreaming Macaron, Handmade Ballet Print


I've downsized my skirt collection from last year because I realized greatly I prefer the way JSKs look on me. I'm still hanging on to a few favorites, though!

Angelic Pretty Magical Etoile, Angelic Pretty Twinkle Tartan

Angelic Pretty Milky Berry, Meta Cat Door

Angelic Pretty Fortissimo, Angelic Pretty Osanpo Candy Chan

Octopus Sweets handmade from Spoonflower, Angelic Pretty Cupcake

Handmade skirts


I had a goal to obtain fewer blouses and more cutsews this year and I feel like I did pretty well! I still have way too many white blouses that I've accumulated over the years that I don't wear all that much.

I'm lazy but if you want the name of a particular pair just ask!


I'm pretty rough on my purses so I don't own many brand ones. I haven't used the totes in a while but I really should, they're so handy!

I'm just as rough on shoes as I am with purses, so I limit myself to cheaper ones.

I need more accessories! Especially bracelets! I'm probably good on bows, I have about a dozen more that I didn't photograph. I'd also like to acquire more wigs.

Offbrand berets, vintage collars, fawn fur from random gyaru store

Jewelry, too lazy to list it all

Random bows

More random bows

My boyfriend works at a used bookstore and someone brought in a bunch the old GLBs. They were heading to the recycling bin but he saved them for me! His mom works in a different used bookstore where someone brought in a bunch of back issues of KERA that she also saved from the shredder.

And that's my lolita collection! Thanks for looking! <3

I love the variety in your wardrobe and the over-all retro feel. :)
4th-Jan-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm starting to think there's TOO much variety, I was trying to stay within a smaller color palette and that seems to have gone out the window. Oh well!
4th-Jan-2013 12:34 am (UTC)
Your sock collection is excellent!
4th-Jan-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
Thanks! I always want more socks! :D
4th-Jan-2013 12:49 am (UTC)
So cute! Love all of your red pieces and the retro look of your items!
4th-Jan-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
Thank you! Red is my favorite color :D
4th-Jan-2013 01:42 am (UTC)
I love the retro side of your wardrobe a lot :)
The way you appear to have altered Dreaming Macaron from a halterneck is great. I've been considering doing that to my jsk too (I'm not sure if I'm just bad at tying the straps or something but I always end up with a neck ache!)

Thank you!

That neck pain is exactly why I modified it! I like the way the halter looks but that knot digging in to the back of my neck was so annoying!
4th-Jan-2013 01:45 am (UTC)
I'm a sucker for both the color red and retro style, so I just loved seeing your wardrobe!
I wonder if AP's French Dot is on your wishlist? I think it's adorable and would probably go great with your current wardrobe!
4th-Jan-2013 03:05 am (UTC)
Thank you! Oh yeah, I love that dress! That sash belt it so cute! Unfortunately I've yet to see it for sale, I always find French Girl instead which isn't nearly as cute. But I'm keeping an eye out!
4th-Jan-2013 02:03 am (UTC)
Lovely wardrobe! Thanks for sharing it, it is a fantastic one!
4th-Jan-2013 03:05 am (UTC)
Thank you! <3
4th-Jan-2013 02:07 am (UTC)
What a cute red wardrobe! :D I'm such a sucker for that houndstooth coat you've got! I've been eyeing the same one on Closet Child for a year now. <3
4th-Jan-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
Thanks! I got it at the Closet Child store in Shinjuku, for some reason they had loads of similar ones! It seems like the Japanese lolita community decided to give up their red houndstooth coats en masse.

I love the colors in this wardrobe, and that Spoonflower fabric skirt is super cute!
4th-Jan-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
Thank you! :D
4th-Jan-2013 03:30 am (UTC)
ooh everything is so neat and organized looking! xD
very nice collection :) awesome that you've gotten most of the dresses on your wishlist!
5th-Jan-2013 05:48 am (UTC)
Haha, this theme gave me an excuse to organize everything, usually it's pretty messy.

Thank you! <3
4th-Jan-2013 04:44 am (UTC)
I adore the retro feel of your collection! Seeing Melody Note and the apple print made my heart pitter patter!
5th-Jan-2013 05:48 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, those two dresses are so great together! <3
4th-Jan-2013 05:17 am (UTC)
I'm so jelly of that Honey Cake necklace *0*
I love your wardrobe (:
5th-Jan-2013 05:47 am (UTC)
Funny story about that! I didn't really care for Honey Cake when it came out, but that necklace was so adorable that I just HAD to have it. The face on that bear really did me in. After a few weeks I was full on in love with the entire series and bought the JSK and bag.

Thanks for commenting! :D

Jealous of that Meta telephone skirt! You have a cute wardrobe! Lots of variety and a great retro feel.
5th-Jan-2013 05:53 am (UTC)
Thanks! I spent FOREVER tracking it down, I had the pink version for a while as a stand-in but got lucky and found the blue one on the comm sales over the summer :D
4th-Jan-2013 07:30 am (UTC)
So many red dresses! You have a lovely collection and I love your taste ^^ Thanks for sharing!!
5th-Jan-2013 05:53 am (UTC)
Thank you! <3

I love your retro style wardrobe! Your taste is really unique!
5th-Jan-2013 05:55 am (UTC)
Thanks a lot! It took me a while to find a style that really suited me but I'm really happy with what I have now :)
4th-Jan-2013 08:38 am (UTC)
lovely wardrobe, great taste!
5th-Jan-2013 05:56 am (UTC)
Thank you! <3

The octopus skirt is amazing. Super cute :)
5th-Jan-2013 05:57 am (UTC)
Thanks! It's such a clever print, I really need to wear it more!
4th-Jan-2013 09:59 am (UTC)
love your music themed dresses, and your handmade skirts, esp. the blue carousel print one =D
5th-Jan-2013 05:57 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)
4th-Jan-2013 10:05 am (UTC)
omg your cute berets and tippets!
cute collection of wigs, too :)
5th-Jan-2013 05:58 am (UTC)
Thanks! I want more wigs, moooore!
4th-Jan-2013 10:57 am (UTC)
You seriously have the cutest retro collection ever.
5th-Jan-2013 05:58 am (UTC)
Thank you! <333
4th-Jan-2013 11:57 am (UTC)
I love how retro and pretty your wardrobe is. Your Meta dresses are really cute, thanks for sharing!
5th-Jan-2013 05:59 am (UTC)
Thanks! Meta is so underrated!
4th-Jan-2013 01:45 pm (UTC)
Really nice wardrobe! I didn't know that there was a lavender version of Gathered Chiffon. I always liked that dress but it didn't flatter me well when I tried it on.
5th-Jan-2013 06:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, I swear that dress comes in every color in existence. I'd love to see a whole gang of lolitas wearing all the different kinds!
4th-Jan-2013 05:19 pm (UTC)
eek, I love that cat bag. It's just too cute!!
You have so many pretty dresses, skirts and tops! Your wardrobe is just perfect to me.
5th-Jan-2013 06:04 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! <3

That brand has all sorts of cat printed items, they're really fun to look at!
4th-Jan-2013 06:12 pm (UTC)
I really like the retro feel of your wardrobe! You seems to choose carefully each pieces it contains :)
5th-Jan-2013 06:07 am (UTC)
Thank you! Yeah, I'm almost pathetically invested in choosing things I like. I always feel guilty for buying things that I don't wear so I make sure I really love something before I seek it out.
4th-Jan-2013 08:08 pm (UTC)
I LOVE all the red! Sometimes I feel like I have too much red in my wardrobe, but seeing all of yours makes me think I don't have enough!
5th-Jan-2013 06:07 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yesss, red is the best color! More red for everyone!
4th-Jan-2013 08:09 pm (UTC)
