*many large photos under the cut*

I really enjoy doing wardrobe posts and seeing everyone else's!
Here are my posts from previous years: 2009, 2011, 2012

I've been a lolita since 2006 so I've had a bit of time to figure out what I like. I spent the past year in Tokyo, close to 3 Closet Childs! My wallet is so pained but I found so many cool things.

My apartment is so crappy that I don't even have a clothing closet in my apartment so I can't share that, unfortunately.
All my clothes are on boring clothes racks!

Now for the goodies~


I found this Juliette et Justine coat at Closet Child recently and I'm madly in love! There are so many bits and pieces you can exchange. I don't know the name of it so let me know if you recognize it.

Victorian Maiden Gobelin Coat

Victorian Maiden British Check OP

Victorian Maiden Velveteen Empire Dress
I got this at Closet Child relatively recently and am so happy with it! It's old, from 2001, and is so long and decadent with oodles of velvet reaching down to my ankles <3 It's a darker black in real life but the photo came out pretty light.

Innocent World Rasiel OP
I like using this as a cutsew + underskirt in one!

Victorian Maiden Forest Rose Dress
This dress looks kind of bad in stock pics so I was never interested in it until I saw it up close - it's much nicer!

Victorian Maiden Sailor Doll OP
I love the texture on this dress, too bad it's kind of tight on me.

Mary Magdalene Marie Antoinette OP
This is such a pretty dress that I'm willing to overlook a lot of fit issues it has. The arms are so constrictive :P

Millefleurs Rose Diamond OP (not official name)


Juliette et Justine Princesse Dans Foret Robe
I'm perpetually searching for the matching bolero to this dress as my #1 wishlist item! Please contact me if you are selling it!

Juliette et Justine, name unknown.
The corset lacing and deep v-cut remind me of Renaissance ladies!

Victorian Maiden Corduroy JSK
This was my very first VM item!

Victorian Maiden Jacquard Rose JSK

Mary Magdalene Majolica JSK
I really want this in green but cream ain't bad either!

Innocent World Violin JSK
It's not the most flattering cut but it's so comfy! I miss dresses with shirring.

Innocent World Tweed JSK
Black, but shows up lighter here. It's nice to have a plain JSK for showing off tights or other accessories!

Metamorphose Gobelin Underbust JSK
I have to be loyal to my gobelin overlords XD

This year I added to my otome collection! I'm loving everything from Jane Marple lately.

Jane Marple Clothing Print OP (not official name)

Jane Marple Tea Party Lace JSK
This is so pretty but I worry about snagging the lace on things so I don't wear it as often as I would like.

Jane Marple Logo Print JSK (not official name)
At first I thought this print was tacky but it's so nice in real life! I'd like to get some of the matching accessories.

Jane Marple Cosmetics Print Skirt

Heart E Red Riding Hood Skirt (not official name)


I don't have many because typical waistbands are pretty uncomfortable for me.

Juliet et Justine Belle Pierreries Skirt
This skirt is so pretty! It was very tight so I altered the waistband to be larger - best decision ever!

Innocent World Juno Skirt
This skirt has been worn a million times and still looks great (came out a little too light and wrinkly looking here but that's just my camera working too hard).

Victorian Maiden Sailor Skirt (not official name)
It's cream with navy trim but the colors didn't come out quite right.


Excentrique Vest & Skirt Set
One of my favorites!

Mary Magdalene Yukata
Not so easy to wear since it's not really lolita, but I still love it.

Jane Marple Musical Instruments Bustier & Black Peace Now velvet vest


I'm moving back to America this year so I've got to sell a lot of things to make room. A lot of them are too small but I'd been holding onto them hoping I'd magically fit them or get them altered, but it's better to lighten my wardrobe rather than ship so many things home.
I'm still including them since they are so pretty!

Innocent World Antique Pansy OP

Mary Magdalene JSK, name unknown

Mary Magdalene Rose Basket JSK (Mint)

Mary Magdalene Rose Basket JSK (Lavender)

I got a little lazy about taking photos of every blouse and cutsew so here is a representative shot!
These are pics from last year: blouses, more blouses, sweaters, cutsews, more cutsews


Top 2 - modded by me
Bottom pic - all offbrand except for bottom right: Innocent World
I love hats! Lately I've been modding my own hats - it's really fun!

Triple Fortune bonnet with plastic mushrooms and leaves added by me! I also made the mushroom cage necklace in the center to match.


Top row: from Mucha mook, offbrand (Takeshita street), vintage
Bottom row: offbrand (Takeshita street), ahcahcum-muchacha, Swimmer

Top row: All Innocent World
Bottom row: Wonder Rocket, Axes Femme x 2


I have two storage boxes where I keep my tights. I didn't want to remove them all so I'm just showing some of the more interesting pairs.
Sources are: JetJ, Tutuanna, 37C, IW, ahcahcum-muchacha, Tabio, Anna Sui, Target, Walmart, Vivienne Westwood

Socks! I don't wear them much anymore and these aren't even all the ones I own :P I also have a bunch of cute ankle socks for summer.
Sources are: Jane Marple, IW, Meta, offbrand, Grimoire Verum


I made Elizabethan ruffs as part of my and my husband's Halloween costumes. They are so ridiculous and fun to wear with lolita!

Here's a sampling of my hair accessories and gloves (some things are hiding in my apartment).
Sources are: vintage, handmade, indie brand, BL, gifts, IW, VM

This photo didn't come out as well as I would have liked but here's all my jewelry!
Sources are: vintage, handmade, indie lolita brand, Excentrique, IW, gifts

Right photo: Meta Nurse Series pass case

Here's just some of my more lolita shoes, but since I wear classic I can also use most of my normal shoes.
Back middle: VM, Center: IW, the rest are offbrand

Thank you for viewing! I sometimes post on my tumblr too!

Your collection is amazing. I love how you accessorized with the dresses in every photo!

Thanks so much! I got a little tired of doing that at the end XD
25th-Jan-2013 01:51 am (UTC)
What an amazing classic wardrobe!
25th-Jan-2013 01:56 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm very much a fan of classic - other styles don't suit me as well.
25th-Jan-2013 02:02 am (UTC)
A perfect and gorgeous classic lolita wardrobe from the absolute best classic lolita I know!!!!!! <3
25th-Jan-2013 03:29 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! :D But there are so many great classic lolitas out there, and I'm getting pretty casual (namely lazy) lately.
25th-Jan-2013 02:03 am (UTC)
I didn't need to see anything else after those ridiculously outstanding gobelin coats. Your collection is amazing! I love everything, there really isn't anything I do not like here.
Also your handmade jewelry is beautiful and I am in love with those cat tights!
25th-Jan-2013 03:31 am (UTC)
Thank you my dear! I feel the same about your wardrobe! Will you be too busy to post yours this year?
25th-Jan-2013 02:03 am (UTC)
That's a beautiful wardrobe. The VM Sailor Doll OP is one of those dresses I remember seeing in a GLB before I started dressing lolita and fell in love with. It's fun to see it elsewhere.
25th-Jan-2013 03:35 am (UTC)
Thank you! I believe my sailor OP is one of VMs rereleases of this design. I waffled about buying it new but eventually I bought it from a friend <3
25th-Jan-2013 02:06 am (UTC)
Fantastic collection, and beautiful layout for your wardrobe! mmm, that Meta pass case. <3
25th-Jan-2013 03:38 am (UTC)
Thank you, I tried hard to work with the circumstances (bad lighting, no dress form, lack of cute closet space). I found that pass case in Closet Child and my heart skipped a beat lol
25th-Jan-2013 02:17 am (UTC)
oh god. dying. SO GOOD. you have the best coat collection.

still want your JM logo JSK too o_O
25th-Jan-2013 03:42 am (UTC)
Thanks! Ironically the Miami girl has great coats? It may be because normal people buy coats for functionality but I just buy the OTT silly ones.
25th-Jan-2013 02:34 am (UTC)
I'm in love with the JetJ coat! It's just breathtaking ♥
25th-Jan-2013 01:45 pm (UTC)
Me too! Don't you have a similar one you got in an auction?
25th-Jan-2013 02:48 am (UTC)
I love it! I love it so much! Your taste is just such a perfect combo of retro kitsch and elegant antiques!
25th-Jan-2013 01:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks! That's a really great way to explain it! Sometimes I like doing weird funky things with elegant classic pieces.
25th-Jan-2013 02:56 am (UTC)
This has to be one of my favourite wardrobe posts so far!

Everything looks wonderful together, and I'm coveting all the Jane Marple ♥
25th-Jan-2013 01:51 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much! I hope to get my hands on more JM (when I can find it cheaply!).
25th-Jan-2013 02:59 am (UTC)
I love all of your MM and JetJ dresses <3 absolutely awesome wardrobe!
25th-Jan-2013 02:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I love MM as well but it just doesn't fit that well so I'm kind of phasing it out.
25th-Jan-2013 03:12 am (UTC)
Oh gosh, I spy at least three of my dream items in your wardrobe (forever kicking myself for missing out on British Check, that green, and MM's Rose Basket in mint and Princess Dans le Forest!). Simply beautiful, and I love all your accessories and shoes as well.
25th-Jan-2013 02:07 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I just obsessively check used lolita shops and sometimes magic happens <3
25th-Jan-2013 03:56 am (UTC)
There are so many interesting textiles in your wardrobe! I love all of the textures of your dresses and coats. Your shoes look comfy and easy-to-wear, too!
25th-Jan-2013 02:10 pm (UTC)
I do pay a lot of attention to textures! I've moved away from border prints and now go for all over prints or interesting textured 3D things like the Tea Party Lace dress. And I need to have comfy shoes since I don't have a car in Japan and have to walk everyyywherrre.
25th-Jan-2013 04:07 am (UTC)
Love that JetJ coat!
25th-Jan-2013 02:14 pm (UTC)
Thank you, so do I :D
25th-Jan-2013 04:44 am (UTC)
Girlllllllll this is just beautiful *o*

I am going to steal your VM and Juliette et Justine coat one day ψ(`∇´)ψ
25th-Jan-2013 02:22 pm (UTC)
Oh noes, then I will be cold!
25th-Jan-2013 04:46 am (UTC)
You have such great style! A perfect classic wardrobe. :)
25th-Jan-2013 02:23 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much!!
25th-Jan-2013 05:20 am (UTC)
I'm surprised by the simple yet elegant wardrobe you have (simple designs = the best ones IMO <3) ! I don't know why, but I always have the mental image that Lolitas of this community who live in Japan have the fanciest closets.
I LOVE your J&J green JSK ! Good luck to find the bolero !
25th-Jan-2013 02:26 pm (UTC)
I like the fancy stuff but I mostly wear lolita to go shopping so I don't have many chances to wear fancy things! Thank you, I hope I can find it sometime!
25th-Jan-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
Holy crap that is beautiful. Why do you have some many of my dream dresses?! And that Antique Pansy. ;A;
25th-Jan-2013 02:27 pm (UTC)
I don't know, you must have excellent taste? lol
25th-Jan-2013 05:28 am (UTC)
i love the excentrique set!! wonderful wardrobe!
25th-Jan-2013 02:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I wish I had more Excentrique but it's so hard to find second hand.
25th-Jan-2013 05:54 am (UTC)
awesome wardrobe! i love love love your Jane Marple Tea Party Lace JSK! first time i see it :)
25th-Jan-2013 02:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you! There are so many JM things that surprise me too.
25th-Jan-2013 06:04 am (UTC)
I LOVE your wardrobe <3 . So jealous of you Victorian Maiden Corduroy JSK!
Well I am glad to see someone else's wardrobe with a lot of victorian maiden! It is a beautiful collection :)
25th-Jan-2013 02:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you! That one isn't that rare, I think I saw it on Closet Child's website recently! But it is small ._. I really love VM but not much of what they've been making in the past 2 years or so :/
25th-Jan-2013 06:32 am (UTC)
You have an absolutely beautiful wardrobe!! :D
This is what I eventually want mine to look like since I'm starting to want more classic pieces and less sweet.
25th-Jan-2013 02:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I used to have more classic/sweet stuff but I moved to more "pure" classic about 3 years ago.
25th-Jan-2013 06:34 am (UTC)
Thank you so much for sharing your wardrobe! It's always so inspiring to look at and it's nice to see such unusual pieces. You also own a lot of my dream dresses like JM Tea Party Lace JSK, JM Logo Print JSK, and the elusive JetJ Princesse Dans Foret Robe. Fururun was selling the set a couple of months ago but the bolero was damaged and I wasn't quick enough so it wasn't meant to be. :D
25th-Jan-2013 02:39 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you enjoyed it! Ohh I saw that on fururun but I too was too late :P
25th-Jan-2013 06:46 am (UTC)
Your wardrobe is perfect, I can't fault it in any way. I love the more uncommon pieces too (older VM and dat Excentrique set), guess that's the advantage of living in Japan!
Thank you for posting <3
25th-Jan-2013 03:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I do tend to go for the not-so-popular stuff since it's cheaper and more interesting!
25th-Jan-2013 07:16 am (UTC)
You have an amazing wardrobe. From the first 2 coats, to the Excentrique Vest & Skirt Set and then your hats and other accessories I love it all! And the mushrooms! I love the way you've added the mushrooms to the bonnet and then those mushroom tights, they are amazing! If you don't mind me asking, where did you get them from?

Thank you so much for sharing your wardrobe! XD
25th-Jan-2013 03:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! I got the tights here:
