Bat_shaped's 2013 wardrobe post 
20th-Jan-2013 03:52 pm

I share a walk-in closet with my boyfriend (his shirts are on the right). My lolita clothes take up the back half of my side.

I have mostly skirts, I find them easier to wear in toned down ways for day-to-day and there are less fit issues.

Aatp border prints: St Mephisto Cathedrale and Gloria ~the beautiful glassy St Mary~

Aatp all-over prints: Name of the Rose and Tarot cards

Aatp corset skirts: The black cat, the witch, and the apple tree; I don't know the other's name

Sweet skirts: AP Shantung frill party, Btssb cherry ribbon

Surface Spell skirts- I love Surface Spell, their quality is just excellent and they love sticking crystals on things
Unicorn applique and Moonlight cathedral

Plain black skirts, I don't know the name of either. The left is aatp and the right is a classic btssb design with tons of lace and a bustle back.

Overskirts: Victorian maiden and Atelier Boz

Handmade (not by me) and handmade (by me) from screenprinted fabric I bought on the sales comm. I've been meaning to add trim to the hem for over a year now, but I can't decide what kind to use.

Meta blouses in three colors

Aatp blouse and Btssb chiffon princess blouse

Offbrand blouses/cutsews

Offbrand chiffon blouse and frilly blazer

Boleros, the white one is from taobao but I dont remember which shop

Short sleeve cardigans, the black one has the same lacy texture as the pink

Long sleeve cardigans

Innocent World capelet and offbrand velvet stole

My beloved Mary Magdalene Amandine coat, with and without the detachable fur.

Btssb trick or treat, Aatp Miranda

Btssb karami jsk in two colors. The black one is quite faded, but I got a very good deal on it

Rose Melody rosa aroma jsk and offbrand jsk from an eBay seller.

Selection of socks and tights, all offbrand

Headwear, some matching headbows and btssb hair accessories, the rest offbrand

Hats and fur stoles (vintage). The bonnet-style hat is vintage too. The cloche is tricky to pair with lolita but I try anyway.

Offbrand gloves and my little collection of painted Spanish fans

Selection of jewelry, the btssb key necklace I got at my first ever convention last year.

Bags and parasols. I'm also waiting for this one in the mail:

This year I got m first pair of non-black shoes. I've been meaning to sell the Antaina boots but they're a hassle to ship so I keep putting it off.

Thanks for looking, I know it was a long post!

I love how wearable everything in your wardrobe looks. Like you could just put it on any old day and not feel too silly/out of place! I'm hoping to get my wardrobe to have a similar feel by the time 2014 rolls around.

Thank you! I had to do some experimenting, especially with sweet styles, to figure out what I liked on others vs. what I was comfortable wearing myself. This is the first year that I really love every piece I have (except those boots, I have to do something about them!)

Seconding how wearable your wardrobe seems! That's not an easy taks with lolita but you've done it so well. I'm in love with that BtSSB parasol that's on it's way to you too.

Thanks for sharing your wardrobe!

Thank you! I try to wear lolita as often as I can, so I go for easy-to-wear pieces.

That parasol is gorgeous, I adore it.
21st-Jan-2013 02:49 am (UTC)
Thanks! it was a lucky find on yahoo!japan auctions.

Your white bolero is from HMHM, i've bought the same ;)
21st-Jan-2013 02:49 am (UTC)
Ah, thank you!
21st-Jan-2013 12:40 am (UTC)
I love your name of the Rose Skirt^^ And that IW capelet and MM coat are just stunning!
21st-Jan-2013 02:52 am (UTC)
Thank you! The capelet and coat actually match perfectly, even though they're from totally different brands, isn't that lucky? It doesn't often get cold enough here to wear them together but its neat to have the option.

Beautiful wardrobe and it's nice to see how wearable everything is! I'm also a "skirt girl" and sometimes feel sad that someone people overlook the power of a good skirts... Yours are really gorgeous! :) My favorite of them all is the Name of The Rose one, but I must say I'm kind biased towards that print hehe
21st-Jan-2013 03:06 am (UTC)
Yes! skirts are usually less popular, but they have a lot of advantages. Name of the rose was my first print, and it's my most-worn too. I don't know see the series very often but I adore it, I'd like to get the matching vest too if I can find it.

Aw, you have a really lovely collection! I love the chandelier skirt. The dual colored tulle trim looks very pretty, and you have some aatp and btssb items I'm hankering after.
22nd-Jan-2013 04:41 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I don't have any really rare items, but I just love them all. Good luck with the ones youre looking for!
21st-Jan-2013 08:21 pm (UTC)
That parasol you're waiting for is gorgeous!
22nd-Jan-2013 04:34 am (UTC)
Thanks! I ended up bidding more than I had planned for it, but I had to have it.
22nd-Jan-2013 01:05 pm (UTC)
Wow that jsk from ebay! I used to think ebay sellers only sell ita clothes o.o
22nd-Jan-2013 09:59 pm (UTC)
I had to remove some really awful lace that came on it, but I still got pretty lucky!
22nd-Jan-2013 06:40 pm (UTC)
You have such a nice selection, I really love the handmade skirts and AatP Gloria print.
22nd-Jan-2013 10:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!
22nd-Jan-2013 09:03 pm (UTC)
I love your closet! I love those AatP prints, especially the St. Mephisto Cathedral one!
And your dog is adorable! I used to have a long-hair Chihuahua too, and they're the best!
22nd-Jan-2013 10:08 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Aatp prints are my favorite (obviously lol). And longhaired chihuahuas are just the cutest, he's the little love of my life.
22nd-Jan-2013 09:45 pm (UTC)
I love that you have the Btssb Karami JSK in black AND white! I have the Rosa Aroma JSK too! I don't see it very often, but it's nice when I do.
22nd-Jan-2013 10:09 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The karami jsk is such a classic baby style, and I love the texture. And the rosa aroma is really stunning in person, I'm surprised it isn't more popular!
23rd-Jan-2013 04:36 am (UTC)
Oh nice, beautiful stuff! I like your cool couch XD And I have the same parasol but in cream! I like the fact that it folds up and I can put it away.
24th-Jan-2013 05:11 am (UTC)
Thank you, I love my couch! My boyfriend wasn't sure it would be comfortable but I was so in love with it (and I think it actually is quite comfortable.) I'm excited to finally get a folding parasol, hopefully since I can put it in my purse I'll be less likely to lose it.
