Animerei's 2013 wardrobe

oregon trail - wagon
I've been in-and-out of lolita fashion for about a decade, but I've really only started building my wardrobe in the last 3 years, maybe.

This is the second year I have done a wardrobe post.  Here is my 2012 post; many things have changed!

I currently share a house with three other people, so my space is somewhat limited.  Hilariously enough, I've actually been cutting down on the amount of work clothes I own, to free up space in my closet for my frills...

parasols are hung over the one folding door (3 on each side)
petticoats are stuffed on the shelf above some of my wigs and shoes
socks are on the far left
dresses, blouses, and skirts take up about 50% of my closet space


Left: Moi-Meme-Moitie - "Sleeping Garden" long shirred OP (black)
Right: Moi-Meme-Moitie - "Cathedral Ruins" long OP (ivory)

Left: handmade OP
Right: Alice and the Pirates - "Masquerade Theater" OP (ivory)


Left: Metamorphose - "Apple Print" frill skirt (black)
Right: Metamorphose - "Fairytale" mini skirt (black)

Left: Metamorphose - "Cat Print" skirt (red)
Right: Baby, The Stars Shine Bright - "My Little Red Riding Hood" skirt (black)

Metamorphose - "Dim Light" mini skirt (navy)
The skirt I was going to photograph with this hasn't arrived yet, so I just yanked the photo off my PG account.

...and then it arrived, like a week too late.  ^_^;
Moi-Meme-Moitie - "Iron Gate" long SK.  (black x blue)

Left: Metamorphose - Leopard retro circle skirt; I don't know the exact name (black)

Right: Metamorphose - "Melody Cat" mini skirt (ivory)

Right: Angelic Pretty "Glass Bottle of Tears" (sax)

Left: Angelic Pretty "Sheep Garden tiered" (black)
Right: Angelic Pretty "Milky Planet" (lavender)

Peace Now "Strange Apple" (black/white & black)

Lief "Sacred Night" (ivory)
I'm so angry with myself.  I accidentally ruined this dress, by wearing it with a velour bolero.
The black bolero stained the straps, underarms, and upper-back of the dress.
I've had it cleaned twice, so far, and the stains seem to be lightening up.  So maybe there is hope for my poor dress...

Left: Metamorphose "Twinkle Journey shirring" (black)
Right: Metamorphose "Songbird Bouquet" (black)

Alice and the Pirates "Vampire Requiem long" (black, ivory, red)
Some day, I shall find the lavender version for a decent price and complete my collection!

sleeves are currently off the brown and pink blouses. :)

Metamorphose "Heart Leopard" retro jacket (yellow, gray)  [FRONT + BACK]

I was *finally* able to get my hands on this skirt!  I actually originally ordered it from Baby, but they found a defect with the skirt and wouldn't sell it to me.  Sadly, it was the last one they had in stock (either in-store or in their warehouse), so I've had to wait for one to come up for sale second hand.

BTSSB "Carol" shoes.  (Black)
I've needed a cute pair of black shoes for awhile, so I was very excited to see these come up for auction in my size!

Angelic Pretty rolling suitcase!  It's been well-used, but I'm insanely excited about this item!

Dream Fantasy Special Set in black.

Wow wow wow! I am infinitely envious of your heart leopard jackets!

Your entire wardrobe is fab~ Love all your novelty pieces, too!
30th-Jan-2013 01:41 am (UTC)
Thanks! Those leopard jackets are hilarious. Oh, Meta...
29th-Jan-2013 09:35 pm (UTC)
Wow, love your crazy Meta collection! So many rare and unusual pieces.

Also, AP suitcase and Vampire Requiem in three colors?! AMAZING!!
30th-Jan-2013 01:44 am (UTC)
I do love Meta because they're just a little crazy. :)

The suitcase was an absolute steal. I found it on Mbok for 1500 yen. It's pretty stained, but I think I can work hard and get most of them out.

My Vampire Requiems are also an example of (mostly) good luck. I traded for the ivory colorway, but I found the other two for reasonable prices on Japanese auction sites. Now if only I could ever find the lavender colorway and the red & ivory wine bags...
29th-Jan-2013 09:45 pm (UTC)
so jealous of all your beautiful Moi Meme Moitie pieces! I dont own anything from them, but im seriously considering it after seeing all these wardrobe posts <3
30th-Jan-2013 01:45 am (UTC)
Moitie does have some really gorgeous pieces. You just have to be prepared to pay a premium because of the brand recognition. But CDJapan often puts older, unsold items on sale, so you can buy for up to 50% off.
29th-Jan-2013 09:49 pm (UTC)
so i had this great idea where you bought a house and we moved in together and started a glorious lolita commune and eventually alpacas?
30th-Jan-2013 01:45 am (UTC)
So what you're really saying is that I should talk to my neighbor who breeds alpacas and ask if we can live in his barn? ;)

Nah, a lolita house would be fun. But we may have to wait on Chelsea for that!
29th-Jan-2013 10:05 pm (UTC)
I want them all (*w*) !
30th-Jan-2013 01:46 am (UTC)
I do love navy blue. It's such an elegant and versatile color. :)
29th-Jan-2013 10:43 pm (UTC)
I want those MmM dresses. They're my favorite in your collection but also vr long in 3 colorways? I'd settle for one! So jealous. Also: Iron gate bag! And all that jewelry!
I also love how you arrange everything in your closet. This was impressive, thank you for sharing, I loved peaking!
30th-Jan-2013 01:49 am (UTC)
Thank you! I absolutely love your wardrobe, so I'm glad you think highly of mine. :)

I wish I had a better way of arranging my closet. It works quite well...until I want that one item on the bottom of the pile. Then I have to disassemble my entire closet to get it out! :P
29th-Jan-2013 11:22 pm (UTC)
Wow I love your collection, especially the jewelery *_*
30th-Jan-2013 01:50 am (UTC)
Thank you! I love AP jewelry because it is fun and whimsical; I can wear it to work with normal clothes for a playful appearance. :)
29th-Jan-2013 11:46 pm (UTC)
Amazing wardrobe! I am in love with your jewelry collection. <33
30th-Jan-2013 01:52 am (UTC)
Thank you! :)
30th-Jan-2013 12:11 am (UTC)
Wonderful wardrobe! I've never seen the "Melody Cat" print before, how did I miss it. *_* Impressive collection of AP jewellery, by the way. Good luck with your Sacred Night JSK. :)
30th-Jan-2013 01:54 am (UTC)
Melody Cat was one of Meta's fall prints, this past year. I can't remember what it was called on the English side of the site (something boring like Cat Border Print) - it's irritating how Meta has two different names for their prints.

Thank you for the good will toward my poor Sacred Night JSK. I'm so irritated because I bought a quite expensive, good brand bolero to wear with it instead of my old, cheap one. And what does it do? Stains the heck outta my dress! >_
30th-Jan-2013 03:42 am (UTC)
Wow! You have an amazing collection! Especially with your 3 VR & all those beautiful bags & the jewelries <3 Thank you for sharing :) !!
30th-Jan-2013 03:44 am (UTC)
Aw, thank you! I find I have a lot more bags and jewelry than anything else, because it is something I can wear with non-lolita clothing, too. When I don't feel like wearing a whole outfit to work, I often just wear some jewelry or use a fun purse. :)
30th-Jan-2013 04:11 am (UTC)
your AP jewelry collection is amazing!! *O*
30th-Jan-2013 07:01 am (UTC)
Thank you! I do have an awful weakness for AP's jewelry. :)
30th-Jan-2013 04:47 am (UTC)
Ah! I love your wardrobe this year. We still have some pretty similar items :3
30th-Jan-2013 07:01 am (UTC)
Thank you! It has been an interesting year, for sure. :)
30th-Jan-2013 05:45 am (UTC)
Hehehe, I also have cut down on the amount of work clothes that I have so that I can make more space for my frills!!

And wow! I love your wardrobe. 3 VR! Such a great blend of sweet, classic and gothic! I love your wardrobe :)
30th-Jan-2013 07:04 am (UTC)
Yes, it has been quite intriguing for me to watch the changes which have overcome my own wardrobe this past year! For work, I've switched over almost entirely to wearing shells and cardigans, which take up much less space and are more versatile than the closet I had before. Because they take up less space, I've definitely been able to squeeze more frills into my closet. *lol*
30th-Jan-2013 07:55 am (UTC)
You have such a wonderful collection! I love that you have almost all of the long VR jsks -- I hope that you'll find the lavender one in the near future!
30th-Jan-2013 08:24 am (UTC)
Thank you! Hopefully, some day I will be able to acquire Vampire Requiem in lavender. Unfortunately, most times I see it up for sale the price is higher than I'm willing to pay. Oddly enough, it seems much more difficult to acquire the wine totes than it is to acquire the jumperskirts! ^_^
30th-Jan-2013 08:47 am (UTC)
Looking at all the wardrobe posts is quite enlightening~ It's my first time seeing the two moitie prints in the first pic, they're so pretty~ the brand's designs have never particularly impressed my but love the detailing in those, I quite like that the buildings stretch higher up the skirt =D And the Leopard retro circle skirt is cute, also another I've not seen before. Love the iron gate bag too *_*
30th-Jan-2013 05:37 pm (UTC)
I love looking at wardrobe posts for the same reason - to find "new" items of interest! :)
30th-Jan-2013 10:22 am (UTC)
Love all the jewelry pieces! ^^
Great wardrobe! :)
30th-Jan-2013 05:38 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I do love AP jewelry. :D
30th-Jan-2013 11:03 am (UTC)
Wow! I want your jewellery collection! :D Your wardrobe is very impressive and I loved looking at everything. It's also good to see how you store everything.
30th-Jan-2013 05:38 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I find it helpful when other people share their storage tips, so I try to include a few of mine. :)
30th-Jan-2013 12:38 pm (UTC)
Girl, your Leopard collection is awesome!!
Meta needs more love ♥
30th-Jan-2013 05:40 pm (UTC)
Thank you! And I agree with you completely; Meta needs more love!
30th-Jan-2013 01:27 pm (UTC)
Wow, so much AP jewellery.
And your Vampire Requiem Collection is awesome.
I only own one.
Maybe I will search for the red one some day.

I am really impressed fromn your wardrobe.
30th-Jan-2013 05:41 pm (UTC)
Heh - I guess the amount of AP jewelry I own is perhaps a tad excessive, but I do so enjoy it! :)

I've had exceptionally good luck, so far, in my quest for all the long Vampire Requiem JSKs. I managed to trade for the ivory version, and found the other two for good prices on Japanese auction sites. I hope you are able to find the red one!
30th-Jan-2013 02:09 pm (UTC)
awesome!!! you have such a good mix of all styles!
30th-Jan-2013 05:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I love aspects of each style of lolita, so I try to incorporate a little of everything in my wardrobe to suit whatever mood I'm in. I do admire people who are able to commit themselves fully to one style or another, though. :)
30th-Jan-2013 05:39 pm (UTC)
oh my god!
i want youre wardrobe!!!!!
30th-Jan-2013 07:25 pm (UTC)
:) Thanks!
30th-Jan-2013 08:51 pm (UTC)
love your Meta Leopard stuff!
30th-Jan-2013 09:43 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I love Meta's leopard stuff because it is so quirky. :)
30th-Jan-2013 09:22 pm (UTC)
Love your Sweet Cream House jewelry!
30th-Jan-2013 09:44 pm (UTC)
Thank you. :) I was kind of sad it was on a larger scale than the Country of Sweets jewelry, but it's still adorable and perfect for the winter holiday season.
30th-Jan-2013 11:18 pm (UTC)
You have such a great wardrobe with so much variety! I totally admire it :) You have beautiful pieces
30th-Jan-2013 11:29 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I find it hard to stick with just one substyle, so I have little bits from everything. :)
31st-Jan-2013 06:32 am (UTC)
WOOOAAh impressive collection of bags, jewelry, and socks OAO!
31st-Jan-2013 06:45 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm trying to cut back a little on certain parts of my collection. I think I've sold 10 pairs of socks in the last month? ^_^;
