Hi all!

I'm a relative newbie to lolita and I am loving it! Mostly I wear simple "bittersweet" and old-school sweet outfits, but I really love the look of classic lolita and want to get more of that style in my wardrobe. I was lucky enough that my boyfriend helped me buy a pretty complete wardrobe all at once, so I've been able to experiment a bit. I love my little wardrobe, and in 2013 I want to make a whole lot more clothes for myself and also buy some gear from indie brands. I also need to build up my accessory collection, especially headgear because I do not like head eating bows on me so I need to get crafty and make some smaller things to stick on my head.

Some of these photos were taken on a slow day at our photography studio/gallery, some were taken at home but unfortunately those ones are all a bit dark. I haven't photographed accessories/socks/tights because those aspects of my wardrobe aren't particularly noteworthy as yet.

DRESSES

Fanplusfriend. Sailor style without a sailor collar!

Bodyline,

Bodyline. This was my Christmas dress, it has faced the ravages of toddlers and baby chickens.

Bodyline. I wanted to show it with bustle up as well as down, but it does look very odd hanging up with the bustle up.

SETS

Untitled-2
"Airship Leeloo" from F+F. This is currently sitting in my sewing pile as I need to replace all the buttons and the chain with something less cheaply golden. This is more of a lolita costume, but I love the blouse/jacket

Untitled-3
eBay dress with two different handmade underskirts.

This was an eBay coat/dress that I turned into a skirt and cropped jacket. The skirt has a bustle back :)

Handmade. I could not for the life of me get the colours to come out right in this one! It's a warmer and slightly darker brown than this, it's really lovely in person.

Handmade. This was my first try at a half elastic waistband and it came out too big, so I'm doing a photoshoot in this skirt and the matching bonnet I made and then selling both off!

20130121_182824
Offbrand from Ally.This is a bit short, but will look fine if worm with tights in winter. This is my newest lolita/loliable purchase and I love it.

BLOUSES

Bodyline. I have this bloue in every colours because I find they go awesomely under JSKs.

20130121_181242
Offbrand from Temt.

20130121_181404
Offbrand from SES.

20130121_181454
Bodyline. I chopped off the collar and arm lace., I swear there was miles of it!

F+F. This blouse looks better in real life, I swear. My camera hates this blouse.  It also has a jabot, which is stashed in the box of assorted bows and waist ties that come with dresses and such.

F+F. Again, hard to photograph, looks a lot better IRL.

OUTERWEAR

20130121_181917
Bodyline. I love this jacket, contemplating getting it in other colours when it starts getting colder.

All from Bodyline. I own LOTS of shoes, and many of them will definitely work quite well with lolita but until I actually have worn them with lolita, they don't get posted. Same with cute t-shirts. They could be added to this wardrobe post, but not until I've actually used them.

Anyways, that's my wardrobe. Apologies for the crapness of most of the home photos, hopefully next year I'll have a functioning dressmakers dummy [or at least a plus size mannequin] to use so I can do a better post.

Cheers,
Roli :D
