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


DreamV cardigan


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


Bodyline and Meta (I lightened this pic a bit so you could see the detail on the black Bodyline blouse)

New blouses - these pictures are just awful, I took these as an afterthought from my PG b/c I forgot to photograph them- please bear with me!

Angelic Pretty Navy Star blouse


Horrible picture of an Adorable Anna House blouse

Waiting on:




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!

awesome collection :D
16th-Jan-2013 11:58 pm (UTC)
Aww, thanks so much~
17th-Jan-2013 12:02 am (UTC)
Wow! You do own so many wonderful dresses! Your Melt Choco Lapin and Cat's Tea Party looks stunning! And yes, that cute dog pink bag is to die for ^___^ what piece from your wardrobe was hardest to find? :)
Also, just wondering: what's your height? I'm interested, because you do own AP's tights (gloria and sweet cream house) and I heard that they used to fit fine only small japanese girls (not over 160 cm) Is it true?
17th-Jan-2013 12:06 am (UTC)
Hi dear! Thank you SO much! And I LOVE Chihuahuas so yes, I HAD to have it! XD
I think the hardest thing to find was actually Dream Sky, believe it or not-it took me nearly a year to track one down!
As for my height, I'm 5'5" and they fit me just fine! I think it would even probably do okay for 5'6" but maybe not much more!
17th-Jan-2013 12:06 am (UTC)
Gorgeous collection of course!! XD So glad you posted it!!!!! <3
17th-Jan-2013 12:16 am (UTC)
Thank you for looking! xD
I'm glad I posted it too-it's kinda interesting to have it all in one place like this. Kinda like taking an inventory.
17th-Jan-2013 12:42 am (UTC)
So cute! you have a lot of "dream-tier" prints in your collection! *_*
17th-Jan-2013 03:45 am (UTC)
Thank you! I've been trying to do more of a "this is what I'm going to look for next" before I just buy something randomly lately. It's really helped me not be not be broke when one of the items I'm hunting for does pop up!
17th-Jan-2013 12:54 am (UTC)
Your wardrobe is awesome! My favorite by far is the Choco Lapin dress. Pretty fun seeing three purses I have in your collection (DD Pony, MC, and Twinkle Star).
17th-Jan-2013 03:47 am (UTC)
Thanks! I love Choco Lapin too! And I know! We have very similar tastes. I suppose great minds think alike!
17th-Jan-2013 01:03 am (UTC)
You have so many prints that I want! Like the blue vare version of SNT D: I have the pink OP in the mail right now, but the bare version is just gorgeous <3 also jealous of Magical Etoile
17th-Jan-2013 03:57 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! Yeah I really love the blue version too! It was another item I wanted for a long time!
As for Magical Etoile I got a really good deal on it because it was damaged and I repaired it. You can find some good deals on rarer prints if you are willing to buy a damaged item.
And congrats on getting SNT in pink! I love the print in all colors, to be honest!
17th-Jan-2013 01:18 am (UTC)
You have really pretty dresses! And nice to see the Toy Fantasy umbrella, it's the second time I see that someone have it, a friend of mine has it too but it was sold out so fast!
17th-Jan-2013 04:00 am (UTC)
Thank you! I actually found that umbrella on the comm sales up for auction. I had been looking for it for so long that I was willing to spend a good amount on it, but I didn't have to! I guess the loli-force was with me in that one xD
17th-Jan-2013 01:33 am (UTC)
Damn girl o___o
17th-Jan-2013 04:00 am (UTC)
Lol, thanks! XD
17th-Jan-2013 02:04 am (UTC)
AMAZING. I can't even begin to describe how jealous I am over some of these pieces! Awesome finds and lovely collection!
17th-Jan-2013 04:04 am (UTC)
Thank you! Like I was saying above, I've been focusing on "questing" for pieces I want and not buying others until I can find the ones I want. It doesn't always work but it has helped me to save enough for when I do find the dress I've been looking for!
17th-Jan-2013 02:11 am (UTC)
You have a lovely collection of sweet! Thank you for sharing :)
17th-Jan-2013 04:04 am (UTC)
Thanks! Have you posted yours at all? I've been looking for more sweet closets to look at!
17th-Jan-2013 02:45 am (UTC)
As always, I'm insanely jealous of your collection. You have so many of my dream pieces!
17th-Jan-2013 04:06 am (UTC)
Ah, thank you! It means a lot to me! I hope I can get out and see you so you could try some of them on!
17th-Jan-2013 03:03 am (UTC)
You have so many statement pieces! Super jealous. *o*
17th-Jan-2013 04:07 am (UTC)
Thank you! I really appreciate it!
17th-Jan-2013 03:23 am (UTC)
Super Jelly! So much amazing things.. want all the socks
17th-Jan-2013 04:08 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, I think I have a sock addiction , haha. When I see socks I can use for a good price I usually pick them up!
17th-Jan-2013 03:44 am (UTC)
Incredible collection !
You're so lucky to own Puppet Circus and Star Night Theater >w< (the blue, bare top version is the best IMO) !
17th-Jan-2013 04:09 am (UTC)
Thank you thank you! I agree, the bare blue is the best version, although I do like all versions and colors of SNT!
17th-Jan-2013 03:47 am (UTC)
you have so many cool pieces! it's fun to see what you'll wear to a meetup so i get to see stuff in person - really looking forward to seeing Cat's Tea Party - i'll try not to drool too much XD
17th-Jan-2013 04:11 am (UTC)
Yay, thanks! I knew you would want to see the cats print! xD
I like seeing your awesome handmade items just as much!
17th-Jan-2013 04:23 am (UTC)
I love your sock collection! :)

And although I don't know why Cinema Doll was not insanely popular, I'm kind of happy, because it keeps it more affordable to buy second hand. :)
17th-Jan-2013 04:30 am (UTC)
Thanks! Like I said, I think I'm beginning to hoard socks, lol!
And yeah, sometimes having something not be popular can be a good thing! You should get it! I've seen it come up second hand a lot!
(Deleted comment)
17th-Jan-2013 04:31 am (UTC)
Haha, I was just commenting on how I love YOUR items xD
Thank you! Yes, it's my favorite colorway too!
17th-Jan-2013 07:58 am (UTC)
Very nice collection! I really like your Magical Mystery Tea Party Alice OP because even though it is a new release, it has a sweet older look to it.
17th-Jan-2013 07:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Yes, I like it too for that reason! Since I got into lolita more recently I don't have many old-school sweet btssb pieces, so it's nice to finally have something in that style!
17th-Jan-2013 11:02 am (UTC)
Aa Milky Planet! It's my secret wtb (or not so secret anymore...)! You have a wonderful wardrobe!
17th-Jan-2013 07:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It was actually my first dream dress purchase, so I can totally understand that! I hope you can get one too!
17th-Jan-2013 11:07 am (UTC)
Your wardrobe is awesome! I love all of your AP pieces.
17th-Jan-2013 07:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I absolutely adore AP! xD
17th-Jan-2013 12:24 pm (UTC)
Lovely wardrobe :) you have so many beautiful pieces <3
I want to live in your closet.
17th-Jan-2013 07:25 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! I really appreciate it!
17th-Jan-2013 04:17 pm (UTC)
I really love your wardrobe! Is the cat tights (taobao?) is going to wore with Cat's tea party? =O I can't wait to see your wearing it!
17th-Jan-2013 07:26 pm (UTC)
Thanks! And yes, you guessed it! As long as the color doesn't end up drastically different than I expect they will be!!
17th-Jan-2013 04:41 pm (UTC)
You have so many gorgeous pieces! I really love that very first alice print! Is the screen print metallic?! That meta Dim Light OP is so stunning too! I never thought I would want to add green to my wardrobe so badly until I saw what Meta did with it.
17th-Jan-2013 07:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And yes, it is metallic! That's one of the thing I love about it!
And I agree with you on Dim light! I didn't think I'd ever own anything green until I saw it!
17th-Jan-2013 08:47 pm (UTC)
AH the sweet cream house tights in my preferred colorway ---- :(((((

awesome collection tho!
17th-Jan-2013 09:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you!!
I really wanted them in every colorway, to be honest, hahaha!
17th-Jan-2013 09:40 pm (UTC)
Amazing collection as always <3
17th-Jan-2013 10:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you!! I can't wait to see yours!
