Hey everyone! Welcome to my 2013 wardrobe post! I took forever to photograph all of these items, so I hope they came out okay~
I apologize in advance if any of the photos are of poor quality
In the year of 2012 I said goodbye to Silent Moon, a Chess Chocolate OP, and some skirts, among others. However, I've welcomed many more into my heart this year to replace them!
First I'd like to start with my dresses!
Here I have two OPs with an Alice in Wonderland theme
Left: Magical Mystery Tea Party Alice dress by Baby the Stars Shine Bright
Right: Alice's Glass bottle of Tears by Angelic Pretty
Left: Fruits Parlour JSK in mint by Angelic Pretty
Right: Toy Parade JSK in mint by Angelic Pretty
Left: Chess Chocolate Bustier in mint by Angelic Pretty (one of my absolute favorites in all of my collection!)
Right: Chess Chocolate low-waist JSK in mint by Angelic Pretty
I used to have the pink OP but I sold it in 2012. I miss it but I prefer the mints anyhow!
Moving on to Skirts!
Here's two JSKs that I got VERY lucking in being able to snag! I honestly didn't think I'd be able to get hold of Gloria at all.
Puppet Circus is of course still the cornerstone of my collection though
Left: Gloria shoulder-frill JSK in pink
Right: Puppet Circus JSK in Ivory
Moving on to darker prints, which I've taken up the challenge of getting more of in the last year or so!
Left: Angelic Pretty Candy Treat in Lavender - I got this online from a used shop, but it still had the tags attached along with the fabric swatch!
Right: Angelic Pretty Dream Sky JSK in Black - My dream dress that I had been hunting for since I started into lolita! So happy to finally get my hands on it
Left: Angelic Pretty Starry Night Theater bare JSK
Right: Metamorphose Dim Light OP
The Meta dress was a big change from what I usually wear, but I absolutely love it! It's very classy and elegant
Left: Angelic Pretty Cinema Doll JSK - I still confused as to why this didn't become as big of a hit as people thought it would be. It's a very gorgeous dress. I actually bought it in pink as well but I sold that set.
Right: Angelic Pretty Chocolate Rosette JSK -This was the first release, which my family got me as a Christmas gift. It was purchased about a week before the re-release was announced. Not that I think there is a difference in releases at all.
Left: Angelic Pretty Magical Etoile JSK
Right: Angelic Pretty Polkadot Chocolate Salopette - I am actually trying to selling this right now. I've discovered that salopettes just aren't for me
This picture didn't come out as well as I had wanted, sadly. Oh well :(
Left: Baroque Pearl Drops on the Dry Flower JSK - I really do love this dress. It's a shame this photograph didn't turn out all that great.
Right: Angelic Pretty Odekake Tea Time JSK -That 2011 AP Lucky Pack was really worth it. I adore this tea-themed print!
Angelic Pretty Melt Choco Lapin Set! I put the arms onto my dressform so that you could see the cute wristcuffs and tote bag. I wasn't quite sure how to attach the headbow though, so it's over in my headbow picture
Angelic Pretty "Cat's Tea Party" JSK set. Again, I couldn't add the headbow to this picture, so it's further down. The included choker is just adorable! I pre-ordered this print all the way back in August. Let me tell you it was worth the wait! It's exquisite!
Left: Angelic Pretty Milky Planet OP
Right: Angelic Pretty Decoration Dream bustle-back JSK.
Alice and the Pirates Scent of Rapunzel JSK II
I would really like to eventually get some more items from AatP. They make some amazing dresses!
Moving on to Skirts:
Left: Angelic Pretty Dreamy Horoscope - This skirt is pretty awesome for casual wear. I've yet to work it into a very OTT coord, however.
Right: Baby the Stars Shine Bright Unico in Bloomland - I got this when I first stared into lolita and I didn't think that I should have reserved the whole set. To this day I've not been able to find the OTK socks >.<
Angelic Pretty Royal Poodle - This skirt pairs amazingly well with the Royal Chocolate pink OTK socks, which surprised me!
Outer wear has not changed since 2013 aside from getting one or two new items, so first, an old picture of items I still have!
AP Capelet (came w/the Tea Time LP in 2012) and Kids YoYo hoodie
And here's the new item that I acquired this year! It's a muff b idgal at least I believe it was made by her, I got it in a set with my SNT JSK and I seem to remember her selling these because I had wanted one, haha)
Blouses and cutsews - These also have no changed aside from getting 3 new ones this year. So first, here's the older photos~
Dear Celine and AP 2012 LP blouse
Offbrand, Meta Chiffon blouse (from the 2011 summer LP) and Bodyline

And that is all. Phew. That took forever! Both to make this post and to photograph it all. This post is sparing you my wigs, bloomers, and pettis, mostly because I got lazy. I also have a broken Dreamy Horoscope ring that I didn't add to this post because I still need to fix it, as well as a Lief Sacred Night skirt that I just could not get to photograph properly.
Hope you all enjoyed my wardrobe post! I know I enjoyed making it!
