Master List of Accessories

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

For the last few weeks I've been searching high and low for accessories to a few of my wardrobe pieces. I cant seem to find any kind of master list of brand print and non-print accessories, Lolibrary and HelloLace have quite a few, but I cant find what I'm looking for.

Do brands ever release a print and only in an OP or JSK in that print? No headbow, no bonnet, no maxipad, no socks, no jewelry? No accessories at all? I'm sure older brand stuff was released without accessories, especially the solid color stuff.

Questions I pose...
Is there a master list of brand print accessories?
Do brands release a print and only in an OP or JSK in that print with no accessories?

One JSK in particular, I'm looking for a headpiece for a BLACK Paris Windows JSK, preferably a headbow or bonnet. Does it exist or am I wasting my time?

I don't think there's a master list, but the bonnet/headbow do exist. I just can't find a stock picture...

Then they're not a fantasy! I think that's why i didn't think they exist, I couldn't find a picture anywhere. Search engines seem to turn up absolutely nothing...

I've seen the headbow in black for sure. Here's a stock photo from Trample:

I'm looking for the catalog, as soon as I figure out where I put it, I'll get you the images. XD


This is all that was in the catalog. Heabows and three socks. Baby's accessories tend to be more generic than APs. So there were a lot of "royal"-ish looking things that season which could have matched this, or other prints from Fall 2007.

Here is the accessories listing as of Jan 2008 (so everything from Fall 2007 should still be listed). A lot of images are missing, but there isn't much in the catalog either. The model for paris window has the headbow, the op, plain white tights, plain white shoes, and a plain umbrella. No jewelery.

I know what you mean. While dress, jsk, etc. are listed at Hellolace and Lolibrary, accessories are often just not there. I assumed those contributing just forget about those things.

It depends on when the item is from and what brand. There are a HUGE number of items out there, and the simple fact is that more people are looking for info about main pieces (and save images of older main pieces) than accessories. Lolibrary (and hello lace, though I can't speak for that), is certainly not "done" as far as filling back older years goes.

A lot of the time, it's harder to find preserved information about the accessories, and when you have a choice between adding 7 older dresses rapid fire, or spending the time to put in one headbow, the 7 dresses usually get put in. The accessories will be there in time, it's just a matter of what the priorities (and the whims) of the person entering things are at that time.

I know personally when I sweep through older stuff, I'll do all of one item type... OR all the items from a certain date. That means that sometimes there will be a disproportionate number of dresses / blouses / skirts (whatever type I was focused on) for a brand at a certain time until myself of someone else sweeps through with other types.

I love Lolibrary and Hellolace. Believe me they've saved my sanity many times! *lol* I know how hard it is to keep everything up-to-date, and that old items might be impossible to find. I applaud those who keep them going. I didn't mean to sound like anyone was dropping the ball.

oh, no, no, no, I didn't mean to sound grumpy or insulted or anything; I'm absolutely not. I just wanted you to know that we hadn't forgotten, and we will get them there eventually. I'm sorry if it came out wrong, I just was like "oh, nooo, the poor neglected accessories ;___; ♥ " and then I started feeling bad for them, and how they must feel ;____; even though they are things and probably don't actually have feelings.
