YuOfOwari's 2013 Wardrobe Post 
29th-Jan-2013 11:03 pm
It almost didn't happen, but I decided to do one
So my wardrobe is still really small, but I've been able to add a couple things over the past year. Hopefully I will be able to do even better in the coming year. 

First Up: The only OP I own.

It's Bodyline; I got it at a Super Awesome Sale in Harajuku a couple years ago.

Next up - JSKs

Right: Offbrand, a little short so I wear a super long petti with a nice lace trim under it, but I like the feel
Left: DOL. I bought this before the Replica debate exploded. I'm fairly happy with it, but I suppose it will be my last (/only). 

I forgot about this one:

Actually, I got this a few years ago at UniQlo Japan in Tokyo. It was part of their "I love Milk" collaboration. I forgot to put it in my post last year. XD 

Skirts:

Left: Bodyline
Right: Handmade (not by me), bought on the comms.

Both of these are handmade by me.

The apple of my eye - I just finished this skirt last weekend. I got the fabric off of etsy because it was similar to that of a bag my grandmother and I made together a couple years ago (see later pic: bags). I love carousel horses apparently...

Underbottoms:
Petties:

Bloomers:

Outerwear

My two main coats. Left: Offbrand, Right: Bodyline

This I haven't had a chance to wear yet, but my mother passed it down to me and she got it from a great aunt. It feels wonderful. Now if only I could figure out what to wear it with...

Boleros. Left: Clockwork Couture. Right: Bodyline

Just a couple cardigans. I love the mint one specially. The other is Banana Republic and is incredibly soft. 

Blouses/Cutsew
 photo 100_4618_zps5e4370e1.jpg
I really need more blouses. The two white ones are Bodyline and the cream one is vintage via Etsy.

These are the only two Brand items I have, so I decided to put them together. :3 That's an Angelic Pretty cutsew and Baby the Stars Shine Bright hair combs. I am going to San Fran sometime around my birthday this year, so I am definitely going to the BtSSB shop and buying something. Literally, I will not get back on that plane unless I have. 

Okay, lets' try some 
Accessories
Hair Accessories:

Wrist Accessories:

The lower ones I made myself. The bracelet is Liz Claiborne and I bought the pink/purple cuffs on the comms.

Rings:

Necklaces:

I forgot to add this choker I made in the previous picture but was too lazy to retake it. 

Broaches:
 photo 100_4638_zpsd71f8887.jpg
I made the bottom two. By made, I mean I bent, glued and beaded them together. I don't make cameos or anything. 

Hats:

Bags:
 photo 100_4626_zps5e314ea8.jpg
I made the two totes. The Beatrice Potter one I actually use more often as a way to carry about my needle point... >.>

Parasol:

Bought locally, here:http://www.sandisangels.com/contact.cfm

And lastly, shoes:
 photo 100_4623_zpsb5b197a8.jpg
Suffice to say, I need more shoes. The pink ones are Bodyline. 

Well actually, I would like to concentrate one getting more shoes, blouses, and I want to make a few more bloomers. Another one piece or two would be nice, too. Mostly, I really just want to make a lot of my own stuff. I'm not very good at sewing, but I love adding little details to whatever I make that make the piece just more "me". I want to buy some Brand, too, but I'm a huge Skill Building kind of person, so making my own pieces is what really drives me, I think. 

Well hopefully I will be able to show some stuff off next year and my wardrobe wont be quite so modest.

You handmade carousel skirt is gorgeous!
30th-Jan-2013 01:52 pm (UTC)
Thank you! So far it's my favorite, although I haven't had to opportunity to wear it out and about yet. I got the fabric from a quilter on etsy who agreed to sell it to me by the yard. Unfortunately, I believe it is out of print (which is why it was so hard for me to track down). The designers makes similar ones, though, if I'm not mistaken... If only I could remember his name...

I love the handmade skirt next to your BL one ! And your hats are very pretty !
30th-Jan-2013 01:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you! It used to be hard to find hats like that, but I think recently they are coming back into fashion, so the brown one is actually from TJMax. haha

I'm so happy you posted! I still love that green coat you have. :)
30th-Jan-2013 01:55 pm (UTC)
<3 I feel extra pretty wearing it knowing I almost bought the black and white one but caved to my obsession with unconventionally colored outerwear.
30th-Jan-2013 08:33 am (UTC)
i love your beaded broaches, and that carousel print fabric is pretty =D
30th-Jan-2013 01:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you. The broaches are really easy to make if you have pliers for jump rings and a hot glue gun. ;)
