Come take a look at my loverly beginner's collection! 
Hope the cut works!

I guess let's start out with dresses..?

This is an offbrand JSK I actually found in Hot Topic- it has pockets~! It's great for bittersweet lolita :)

My very first brand piece! It's AP's "Assorted Cookie JSK" that I bought from someone here on the comm sales :D sadly I need to buy an underskirt to put with it, it's way too short on me. > . <

Offbrand, I found it in a vintage store for $20! Technically my first "loli" dress, but I have yet to wear it out in public :x

Bodyline's Squirrel Party OP in lavender! This was my first REAL lolita dress, and surprisingly, I've only worn it once! I love it so much, though. <3

This is another vintage dress I found at the store I work at, I think it's a square dancing dress, but I think it makes for great country lolita. I'm in the process of replacing all the ribbons on it :>
And now to the skirts!~

This one just arrived in the mail today!! Bodyline's Soft Cream skirt in mint, I've been eagerly looking forward to receiving it, now I can't wait to wear it!

A handmade cupcake-printed skirt my mom and I made :)

Another handmade skirt, courtesy of my mom. She did a killer job on those pockets!! 

Apologies for the blurry photo, but this is F+F's "Bridge of Bubbles" skirt- it looks beautiful in real life, camera did it no justice. 
Aaaaand now for the extra stuff!

Every singly one of these was bought at either Goodwill or a consignment shop! The black one is really cool- it has shoulder pads, a mandarin collar and a second layer of lace sewn on to the whole thing, not sure how to explain it..?

Cardigans, offbrand- the ivory one has bows on the shoulder and I got it in the kid's section at Target, haha.

Some fur-collared sweater... Cardigan... Things!

Ross is my best friend.

Wiiiigs- can't remember who I got the lavenderxmint bob from, the blue is from Bodyline, the bushy curled one from Arda Wigs, the pinkxyellow is from GLW, the black from Epic Cosplay, and the blackxpastels is from Animestuffstore on eBay.

I... Am not a fan of socks. Surprisingly. I prefer tights- mostly cause patterned socks stretch out funny on my calves :x and they slide down all the time. So most of my things are tights- the box and bag are crammed full of hand-me-downs from the 80's my mom gave me, most of them never even used. It is paradise <3

And finally, shoes! The only "brand" shoes there are the pink Bodylines in the front row. 
I didn't photograph hair accessories/jewelry because I have a lot and it'd have taken forever to show it all! 
Not included in these pictures was the coord I was wearing while I took them!

Wig from GLW, skirt is "Baroque Pipe Organ" from F+F :)

I am currently waiting ooonnn:
Light pinkxwhite Loris teacup handbag
Surface Spell's Cathedral Gothic JSK in blue
DoL's Melty Chocolate OP in mint

I love those handmade skirts, the blue one looks amazing. If you don't mind me asking, what is the quality like with the 'F+F- Baroque Pipe Organ', is the print like a iron-on? Thanks for any advice :)
31st-Jan-2013 02:59 am (UTC)
Haha they are wonderful! And well I mean it's printed on, not an iron-on, I think they've switched to using "digital printing" methods, or so they say on their website. I'm not much of an expert on prints, haha! But the skirt is lovely- it's surprisingly lightweight but it's very comfy and warm! It's also lined, and the fabric is very soft... Thin, but soft, but not so thin you can see right through it. If you're interested in buying one from them, I'd recommend it, I absolutely love mine. Just make sure you get it on sale ;)

No problem, hope I helped! :D

I was really curious about that skirt too, I haven't browsed F+F in a while so I didn't realize that was where it was from, it looks really nice!
31st-Jan-2013 11:11 pm (UTC)
It is very pretty in person! The print is lovely! :D

Ooh, love that handmade star map skirt your mom made! It's really eye-catching with the black lace.

Curse the cute tomfoolery that are socks! Why can't they just stay up?? D: Haha thank you- Goodwill has become my home away from home these days. I've found so many shoes there it's unbelievable.

the F+F skirt looks like it might be cute. I'll have to visit their website to see the detail.
