I have been interested in lolita fashion since 2001, and was finally able to make my first purchase (which I no longer have), in 2004.  Here's how my (and my fiance's) wardrobe have grown over the years...

(The pictures are from various points in time, as some things just haven't changed much over the last year (or even more).  Items I plan on selling are not included.)

Dresses, Skirts, Coats/Jackets, Vests, Blouses...
Petticoats are currently stored in the garbage bag with the green tape as we just moved recently and are still getting ourselves sorted out.

The hat boxes on the left are mine (holding my hats and hair accessories, the little one on top has some of my tights), on the right are my fiance's (his hats and accessories).  In the middle the boxes hold my bloomers, bonnets and more socks (the rest stored in a bedside drawer).  The larger red make-up bag near the middle is Meta.

I hope you enjoyed our wardrobes!  As usual, I enjoy looking at others, and having the eye opening experience of seeing my own put all together (and fiance's). 

Thank you for looking!

You and your fiance have SO many great pieces! I love all of your older dresses. I'm especially envious of your Maria Antonio OP, it's my ultimate dream dress. <3

Thank you! Maria Antonio was one of my dream dresses too.

I love your closet! A lot of your pieces definitely give me an old school vibe, which I love very much!

(Also, I totally can't deny that I'm glad to see someone keeping their 'Flying Fuck' shirt :'D).

Thank you! Sometimes I kinda miss the old school days, some of it, haha. :)

You and your fiancé have amazing wardrobes !
I want his jackets *ç* !

Thank you :)

I love your Meta marine JSK. And, of course, I like the infamous Flying Fuck shirt. Too funny!

Hehe, thank you.

So cute, you dress alike! *_*

Your wardrobe is a great mix of older and newer pieces! You have all of my favorites from each of the brands I wear (That classic BL print with the cameo floral print, BTSSB Bunny Milk and Snow Strawberry, Innocent World Classical Chairs, and Meta Room Print). And that velvet handmade dress with the ribbon is perfection.

Do you have a favorite/especially treasured piece in your collection?
17th-Jan-2013 04:30 pm (UTC)
My BtSSB Stained Glass print and my MM bonnet are my most treasured pieces, but some of the others do come in a close second. Oh, and of course my BtSSB ribbon ring being my promise ring.

Thank you! :)

It's so nice seeing some of these older and rarer pieces!

Yeah, thank you!

What a great wardrobe! I love a lot of the old school pieces you've got.

I'm in SERIOUS envy of your Teddy Motors jumpsuit. Finding it on auction has been a tall order for me!
17th-Jan-2013 04:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I managed to snag Teddy Motors on Closet Child a few years ago.

You have the teddy motors jumpsuit! Oh gosh that is so cool! I remember seeing those when I first got into lolita and its so hilariously awesome, I wish meta still made stuff like that!
The two of you have such good taste!

I love your mix of older and newer stuff, and it is so cool to see a guy's wardrobe too. Thanks for posting this--you seem to be a fellow shoe lover!

I love all your IW dresses <3
lovely closet
