Wardrobe post! Offbrandish, Handmade, and Sweet. 
9th-Jan-2013 10:43 pm

So here's my first wardrobe post with what I've collected over the (few) years. It's still not big - I've yet to have enough money to buy everything I want to buy, and the time to make everything I want to make.

It's mostly some kind of slightly toned-down sweet. All items called handmade are made by me. Here goes!

OPs: Pink one (looks more pastel IRL) is a MM replica from Taobao, Grey is Antique Clock from Bodyline


JSKs: Both from Bodyline

Skirts: The top one os a modified Milky Planet replica, the other 2 are handmade

Cutsew from Dear Celine, modified blouse from eBay (it's white IRL, not cream)

Cardigans: Mint one from a clothes swap: the rest are thrifted (fun story: the black one I originally saw in somebody's wardrobe post last year, and desperately coveted it. The next day, I went thrift shopping. And found one just like it!)

Petticoats (one from Classical Puppets, one hadmade) and 2 more tops I wear with casual lolita sometimes

Now for the fun part! Accessories! These come from everywhere, but mainly eBay and taobao. The stuff to the farthest right (cuffs, hat, bat, grey-white bow, pink glitter heart, moon, roses and clock headresses are all handmade by me). Plus my favorite blazer which didn't fit in the last pics.

The only classical piece in my wardrobe(and also my first lolita dress. Yup, that was a long classical period, alright.): a Victorian Maiden replica. Shown with the hat again, since I made the hat to match it (this was also my graduation outfit when I graduated from high school/sixth form). Shown with Ingegerd the plush kitty, who accompanies me on about 90% of my lolita adventures. And most of my other adventures too, come to think about it.

My favorite, handmade headdress that I unfortunately sold a while ago and I haven't had time to make a new one (had one with blue bows too, but that got sold as well)  :(
(Plus the silver Bonjour Honey star hairclip that I can't seem to find today. And my haircut isn't that uneven, really.):


Not shown, because they are in my hometown, in my mum's basement, where I'm not: Teal striped "steampunk" bustle skirt from Bodyline, pinstriped victorian tailcoat from Bodyline, handmade bloomers, and a bunch of socks and tights I neglected to photograph (They don't look like much anyway: imagine a bunch of white and black crochet tights, argyle and grey plain ones, and a pair of white/pink striped knee-high socks and you won't be far off.)

That's my wardrobe for now, and I hope to add more to it soon!

The tartan JSK from Bodyline is pretty cute! :)

I know, it's great! It's even slightly glittery. It goes with so much.

That black bow cardigan is adorable! I'm glad that you were able to find it. :)
