If you want specifics, feel free to ask

Things that I purposefully left out:
Purses / Leather Bags (non tote bags)
Bloomers, Petticoats
Shoes
3 Blouses, 2 skirts, and a dress that was in the laundry - offbrand, Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, and Lady Sloth
Tights
A lot of accessories - head pieces, rings, necklaces, earrings, etc.
A lot of offbrand blouses, sweaters, cardigans, etc.

Some stuff that is with my SS / in the mail:
Meta Apple Collared JSK in white
Meta Apple barettes in white and navy
Meta Apple cardigan in white and black
Meta Apple belted skirt in black

I'm trying to get all the pieces in the collection, so feel free to shoot me a message if you have the Apple print and are looking to get rid of it! :)

I wear a lot of this every day, so my non-Lolita clothing is technically part of my wardrobe. There are a lot of pieces that aren't in these pictures that I use as well, especially sweaters, cardigans, and tights, but I decided to focus on the bigger pieces. This is an accumulation over several years.

There is also a MmM black x blue nightgown I am missing, but I can't find it? I might die. I have no idea where it is. I recently moved so everything is all over the place. brb before I destroy my house looking for this dress.  D: D:

I love Meta's apple print, too! I hope you're able to find the pieces you're looking for. :)

I have so much love for it. I have no idea why XD The print just always stuck out to me. My husband is like, "You have that one already, why do you need it in every color?" :P Thank you, I hope so too. :)

I love the little worm. It gets me every time. I've owned that print in black, pink, and white. I finally sold my white JSK because it looked weird on me, but I've kept my pink JSK and black skirt. I wish I could find the black shirred JSK, but every time someone offers it to me, they've also offered it to 10 other people - many of whom are quicker on the draw than I am! :)

I know! I just missed the black shirred JSK by like a few seconds the other day. She traded her dress for a Lady Sloth dress! I was like 0______0 I HAVE THE SAME LADY SLOTH DRESS TRADE WITH MEEE. So sad!

I like the worm and the little "I love you"s all over it! :D

Impressive wardrobe !!
I love your off-brand and indie brand stuff !
17th-Jan-2013 04:26 am (UTC)
Thank you! I am a big indie fan just because they usually can do custom sizing and make the pieces fit my bust. Nothing like a garment made to your measurements!

My offbrand is so necessary to pad my wardrobe for every day wear. I'm no millionaire, and I can't dry clean every day, so I limit the amount of "complicated" pieces in my closet to help minimize the maintenance.
17th-Jan-2013 04:34 am (UTC)
Oh gosh! I love seeing a closet so vastly different than mine. That is-skirts! You have a wonderful collection of them! I've never seen the Meta skirt that matches the tote I got in my LP before-it's amazingly beautiful!
I love all of the indie brand stuff you have too!

Thank you! Until I starred taking these pictures, I had no idea I had this many skirts! My husband was shaking his head at me while I pulled everything out XD

Indie brands just need to be loved more. I love some of my indie pieces more than my brand!
17th-Jan-2013 09:57 am (UTC)
I love your closet! This is a totally weird question, but that cream/black floral IW OP of yours: when you got it, did it come with any waist ties?
17th-Jan-2013 01:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Um... maybe? I have a lot of waist ties that could have gone with any piece, but the more I think about it, I want to say yes.
17th-Jan-2013 11:20 pm (UTC)
xD Okay, because I think that dress might have been one I sold to someone else a long while ago, but I just forgot to send them the waist ties. I actually have them still lying around here somewhere, if you'd like them. LOL.
18th-Jan-2013 01:09 am (UTC)
Hmmm. XD IDK! I'll pair my waist ties with their dresses tonight and see what's missing LOL
17th-Jan-2013 10:00 am (UTC)
Ooh, that's an impressive skirt collection, and love the lady sloth ones. By any chance would you know the name of the black meta skirt, i got it in the LP and have been trying to find info on it =)
17th-Jan-2013 05:30 pm (UTC)
I also got it in an LP, so no, I have no idea! I could check the tag when I get home and try using my poor Japanese skills to translate it though XD
17th-Jan-2013 11:06 am (UTC)
Another person that prefers skirts! lol. I just love how toned down yet interesting and sweet your wardrobe is. Your style is my inspiration! I just love the lucky pack stuff. For the apple stuff, I recommend looking on Mbok and yahoo auctions, even though you probably already did, because they often have the apple cardigans for sale and other accessory.
17th-Jan-2013 01:49 pm (UTC)
Thanks :) My SS tirelessly searches the auctions for me, and sometimes I peek through too. It is honestly how I got the majority of my pieces in the collection for a reasonable price. When I see the dresses going for $300-400 on the EGL sales, I am gagging because I know I can get the same thing on the auctions for half that.
17th-Jan-2013 11:11 am (UTC)
Very nice collection! I am a fan of Meta's Apple print too! I hope to get something from that series in the future.
17th-Jan-2013 01:52 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It is a wonderful print. You would think it would not be versatile, but I wear it in so many different ways! Good luck to you as well!
17th-Jan-2013 04:21 pm (UTC)
where is your red bonnet from? its stunning.
17th-Jan-2013 05:22 pm (UTC)
milkteamilk is a local friend of mine, and made it for me to match my Lief dress :) Her shop is here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/OphanimGothique
17th-Jan-2013 07:24 pm (UTC)
lucky you haha!! thank you for the link!!
17th-Jan-2013 04:23 pm (UTC)
I love all that Baby! It's seriously all adorable and I absolutely love that last what BtSSB OP!
17th-Jan-2013 05:23 pm (UTC)
BtSSB and Meta are pulling me in two different directions. I really love the recent stuff they have been putting out, and the resurgence with the memorial series ... hnnnggghhhhh XD
18th-Jan-2013 01:02 pm (UTC)
Oh gosh that memorial series! I am seriously a bit bummed that it came out just after I bought Marie Antoinette! Especially because the price it goes for is the same as a new dress because DUH IT'S GORGEOUS! And I even think I like the new version better because the cut is more versatile and I am pretty sure the memorial version has cream in the print instead of white, which means I could match it better. I could be wearing it all the time!
17th-Jan-2013 06:02 pm (UTC)
all dat apple. *___*

If you don't mind me asking, what's the fit like on the round collared JSK? I'm hunting that one but I'm afraid it won't fit me, and was planning to get it altered with some fabric from my meta apple LP skirt, but if I don't have to I would be so happy lol
17th-Jan-2013 06:34 pm (UTC)
I had to alter the bust to get it to fit my boobs XD It is not forgiving at all in that area. The waist for fine for me.
17th-Jan-2013 11:51 pm (UTC)
That is unfortunate! Did your tailor/you just let out some of the seam allowance or should I prepare to have to add in panels? lol.

Sorry for buggin' you!
18th-Jan-2013 01:08 am (UTC)
No biggie. Small panel along the back zipper seam. It depends on how much extra room you need.
