Tea Cup Cracked Melon Green Mint Pink In
The Closet Confidential TAG has been circling around youtube on and off the last few months; let's re-purpose it for Lolita! I like this tag idea because it creates a much more streamline wardrobe-type video that really says a lot more then just going through one's entire collection.

Answer all Seven questions below in word or photo-form;
1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
2. What is the newest item?
3. What is the most expensive item?
4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
5. What was the biggest bargain?
6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
7. What are your three favorite items right now?

If you do the TAG (as a blog anywhere or youtube video) instead of typing something below; just reply with a link so we can still see it!

What a cute prompt!
1. Sax Bodyline OP I bought in 2010
2. Ironically, another Sax Bodyline OP, bought during the no shipping campaign
3. Probably the classical puppets petti or my English Charm blouse ($50-60ish? I don't remember)
4. Secondhand skirt for $30 at a con~ Sadly it is missing one waist tie, but it matches with so many different blouses!
5. I bought two pairs of Meta socks at a con for $10 each!!
6. Buying Secret Shop socks even though they never ended up matching a single item in my wardrobe waaaah
7. Cheap lacy ankle socks from Claire's, this whole set of lacy overshirts from Rue21, and a Bodyline necklace

I like this idea :D

1) In terms of oldest item I own, a black Bodyline OP, my first Lolita dress. In terms of age....probably my MmM Clergy OP from 2000
2) Newest in terms of owning, my IW Carriage Tassel JSK and headbow. Age-wise, my Putumayo Arabesque Velveteen JSK.
3) It's a tie between my AatP Vampire Requiem JSK and my Atelier Pierrot Rose lace JSK
4) Dress-wise, a black and white Bodyline OP for $27 . Overall, a pair of wrist cuffs from AatP which I got for free as a gift ^_^
5) A BTSSB babydoll JSK which was originally like $200 that I got for $50 because of minor damage
6) Probably my BTSSB tartan salopette, which I barely use and which doesn't look that flattering on me.
7) Currently my IW Carriage Tassel JSK, my BTSSB Snow Queen OP and my F+F Midsummer Night's Dream JSK

This seems fun ^ ^

1. IW Frederick Party JSK
2. I haven't bought a recently released JSK in a long while, it would be AP's Wonder Party re-release. Newest purchase was a cute white blouse with elbow length sleeves with a Victorian era feel.
3. The AP Wonder Party re-release. I tend to buy cheap only lol
4. One of my Bodyline JSKs. Non-dress would be decorative tights.
5. My AP Honey Cake bag that I got for $80 because it had a barely noticeable tiny chip of red missing on the side. Loved that deal :D
6. Buying that Milky Chan replica that was all over the China Ebay shops.
7. This black long sleeve top I have with chiffon sleeves and a pussy bow. I pretty much wear it with all my JSKs that would match a black blouse. Then my AP Wonder Party JSK because I'd wanted it for years, and the new blouse I got.

Interesting. Alright, I'll take a shot at it.

1. The oldest thing I have in my wardrobe right now is the Bodyline I061 from 2011.
2. My newest addition to my wardrobe is Lief's Sacred Night in Ivory. (So happy I found one up for sale)
3. Sacred Night. Definitely. I've never paid more than $200 for a dress before. Astronomical Clock and AatP's Toy's March has to be my second most expensive.
4. Hmmm... that's a good question. Going to say the pink and white Bodyline socks sitting in my closet that I don't use anymore.
5. An IW JSK for $60 or so. It's been awesome as a spring/summer addition.
6. A F+F blouse with wayyyyy too puffy sleeves for $40 - $60 bucks. I fixed it up somewhat but... eh.
7. Astronomical Clock, Felicia Crown and Sacred Night. I think the most practical dress though for me has been IW's JSK with Vest because I'm able to wear that almost everywhere.
14th-May-2014 02:21 am (UTC)
This seems interesting.
1. Baby's Poodle Applique Roll Skirt from '07.
2. Meta's Chambray Prince Pants from December 2013.
3. Factoring in exchange rates, it's the Prince Pants.
4. If accessories count, I got vintage leather gloves for free from a local lolita!
5. The gloves mentioned above, followed by a pair of black lace OTKs from another local for $1, and then my miniature bowler hat for $7.
6. Probably the pants again.
7. The Pants, IW's Octavia JSK, and my BPN ruffle capelet.

14th-May-2014 02:50 am (UTC)
1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
It's a tie between a Meta skirt that I've seen in a 1999 street snap, or a 2001 Meta dress. It's a tie because I'm not actually sure if the skirt is as old as the one in the street snap because I think the lace is slightly different.

2. What is the newest item?
A JeJ JSK that came from a lucky pack sometime last year or so, or maybe an AP cutsew I picked up over the summer. I mostly only buy old stuff xD

3. What is the most expensive item?
Uggggh I think I spent $350 on Baby's Marie Antoinette?

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
I have a lot of things that friends just gave me. Free is cheap!

5. What was the biggest bargain?
Maybe that JeJ JSK, it was new with tags and only cost $75. I know it was just from a LP, so it wasn't selling for the cost on the tags, but the difference between the price on the tag and what I paid was crazy huge.

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
All these pink dresses I keep buying!

7. What are your three favorite items right now?
That AP cutsew, AP's Secret Garden because I keep wanting to find a reason to wear it, and my BtSSB's brandwhore name print skirt.

14th-May-2014 04:30 am (UTC)
1. If by how long it's existed it's the Blue Tartan shirring princess by Baby, by how long I've had it it's a F+F checkered overskirt.
2. A Black F+F blouse and tiered skirt
3. Baby's Sweet Kuma Kumya Chocolate jsk
4. Meh, a bodyline jsk with Pink Plaid
5. Nabbing a Usakumya pochette, waterbottle holder, and the mini mini all for 50 bucks on Mbok. Gave the pochette to my friend since I had one in white

Great Idea!

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
A black bodyline OP that I bought last year.

2. What is the newest item?
Brown Secret Shop teaparties! So cute and versatile.

3. What is the most expensive item?
My Mary Magdalene St-Clair op.. ah I love it so much, worth every penny. Bought it here on the commsales~

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
R-series dear friends tights. Although the print is kind of pale, their price plus shipping (by ordering directly from the store) made for a good price for what they are.

5. What was the biggest bargain?
A while back, before I got into lolita, I bought a really cute bluish grey vest for just 10 bucks, the original price was something like 60-70 or so.
I wear it all the time with my more casual outfits.

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
Taobao tights that are meant to emulate dripping chocolate over a chocolate bar.. and the chocolate bar part looks like red bricks.
I find they look awful and I'm really miffed even though they really didn't cost much at all.. haha

7. What are your three favorite items right now?
Ahh this is a tough one.. AP heart cream necklace in brown (I wear it with everything, lolita, casual outfits of all sorts.. I love it),
Melty Royal Chocolate Salopette in bitter, and Infanta Spring Fragrant Shadow of Forest OP.

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!

Just because they're some of my newest/least worn items so far- this BTSSB dress, Innocent World dress and Bodyline skirt :

2. What is the newest item?
Dresswise, my Fancy Egg JSK. As a whole, my two pairs of black shoes.

3. What is the most expensive item?

A bodyline vest that I got secondhand for a couple euros.

5. What was the biggest bargain?
M Side Bow JSK, the seller sold it as Bodyline!

My Chess Chocolate JSK, Fancy Egg JSK and a BTSSB blouse with princess sleeves of which I don't know the name.
14th-May-2014 07:35 am (UTC)

Victorian Maiden Stripe Rose Ribbon jsk, recieved it last month. I don't know from which release it is.

A AatP blouse for 40€ and a brand new with tag VM dress for ~100€

14th-May-2014 07:52 am (UTC)

This is a bit hard for me to answer, because I do not know the release dates of a lot of my items. I believe that one of my Meta pieces is the oldest, but I have no release dates (e.g. my Meta camouflage skirt and apron). But if I only consider those of which I do then it is Lace Up Ribbon Strap Shoes from MM.

My most newest item is Sleeping Beauty Rose Choker from BTSSB, which I bought from Baby Paris to match my dress.

Sleeping Beauty OP from BTSSB, whit customs it which really expensive, but I'm really glad I've bought it.

Elizabeth's Over Robe OP, it is in no way the cheapest item in my wardrobe, but I had been hesitating to buy it for some time and all of a sudden it was placed in the sale, so for me that was a big bargain.
6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
Overly sweet dresses, I have hardly worn sweet and now I've a hard time to let go of those dresses.
7. What are your three favorite items right now?
Sleeping Beauty OP, Elizabeth's Over Robe OP, and my white Bunny Pochette from Meta

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
Oldest one in my closet is Shirley Poppy Fairy from BTSSB, the oldest in terms of age I think IW Cardinal Rose from 2007.

2. What is the newest item?
Rose Basket Angel skirt from IW in beige.

3. What is the most expensive item?
Shirley Poppy Fairy since I bought in the Baby shop in paris. Also a contender are My IW Birdcage and Philharmonie JSKs, since they gave me 121 euro of custom fees.

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
My IW Acanthus and Crown Embriodery skirt were not more than 23 euros each.

5. What was the biggest bargain?
I still need to receive it, but I may have bought a real IW Violin Bag for 12 euros on rakuten. I'm still super anxious that I will get a replica or that I misread the price or something.

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
Anything that doesn't fit or remains unused. Also my first dress I bought at the BTSSB store in Paris. It was too much money for something that is not really my style.

7. What are your three favorite items right now?

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
Oldest as in it's been in MY closet longest is this bodyline candy skirt in sax


Oldest as in the item's age are three skirts from 2004. Angelic Pretty's Sleeping Princess Skirt in black and Wine and Meta's Horse Print Skirt in Sax



2. What is the newest item?
I don't remember, but I think these three all came in the mail around the same time... AP's Wonder Queen JSK in Wine and Navy, and APs DDC Twilight Set


I'm currently waiting on Little Dipper Chiffon Underskirts in Wine and Black.

3. What is the most expensive item?
The most expensive item based on what I paid was Angelic Pretty's Star Night Theater Bare JSK in Blue




4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
Probably that blue bodyline candy skirt! I think I spent like $11 or $13 on it!

5. What was the biggest bargain?
Best bargain on things I directly bought was getting APs dressy eternal JSK in black for under $100 (I don't remember exactly what I paid anymore and I'm too lazy to look it up)


Best slightly more roundabout bargain was my SNT skirt in pink. I got an AP dress with a headpiece that matched it on Mbok for a really really good deal when I was a newbie (it had a "stain", but it just came right out), but it didn't fit. So I traded the dress and the headpiece for this skirt.


6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
Probably a toss up between a few things. I haven't been super ripped off at all. So maybe some of the lots of printed materials I've bought on mbok that were less useful than I'd hoped. I did buy a handmade skirt on mbok once that was listed as Pretty; I figured there was a chance that it might be super old pre-"Angelic" AP, but it wasn't. You can tell it's handmade if you look inside. Still, it was super cheap. OH! wait! I got a pair of an*tai*na shoes that died within hours of wearing them.

7. What are your three favorite items right now?
These rose and feather two-way clips from taobao (I have them in mocha, pink x white, wine x black, black, red x white and blue), VWxMelissa three strap shoes (I have gold, black, dark teal and strawberry. The gold are my fav), and IWs Dobby Ribbon Tie Blouse in cream. I absolutely love that blouse.


;____; I just wrote the whole thing and I went to add a link and it ate it so I had to start over from scraaaatch. ;___;

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
In terms of when I bought it, probably an offbrand April Cornell skirt. It doesn't fit my current petti, but it still counts I guess since I did use it in lolita when I was juuust starting out. If you mean like when it was made then this http://hellolace.net/wardrobe/baby-the-stars-shine-bright/type/jsk/item/341/
2. What is the newest item?

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?

Don't feel bad about the dress you bought only to put on your mannequin. Don't think of it as a waste because you'll never wear it, instead think of it as a beloved accent piece that you chose to work into the interior decoration and design of your room. People spend just as much, if not more so, on accent pieces for their home all the time ;)

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?
MmM Bustier in black
I'm not entirely sure, but propably my MmM bustier (Mana wore it with Gothic Arch skirt back in the day) or my MmM shoes or boots, not sure which ones are older.
Unfortunately, I don't have my first lolita purchases anymore or my first awful handmade dresses.
My parents have saved one dress I made in 2007, tho, but I don't have photos of it as it is hidious.
(it's been stored at my parents house)
2. What is the newest item?
AP Musee du chocolat m
APs Musee du Chocolate special set in mint.
3. What is the most expensive item?
MmM Iron Gate op BKN mi
MmM IronfuckingGate in bkn, I was so desperate of obtaining it that I gave a MmM dress + a lot of money for it.
I don't even dare to say the details. ;;;
But it's ok, I will never part from it so it doesn't matter. ♥
4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
Lacegloves in blk m
Offbrand lace gloves from ebay! :D
5. What was the biggest bargain?
MmM Holy cross lace headdress in bkn m AatP Treasure box bag m
Either the MmM Holy Cross round headdress in bkn or AatP Treasure box bag in black.
I bought both from mbok, the headdress for about 6000 yen and the bag for about 10000 yen.
But, back then yen was strong, so in euros it didn't feel so cheap. :D
6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
I've had quite a few.. The biggest? Propably buying AP Sugary Carnival for $550 and receiving it damaged by US customs.
(It doesn't even make sense, because I live in Finland, but I bought it from Canadian girl and, for some stupid reason, the packages have to go to US before entering EU and american customs seem to open every package JFC. They managed to damage the dress pretty badly, it had a proper cut on the front.) I don't have it anymore, tho.
I think none of the items I currently have was a waste of money, well maybe the iron gate, I should have been more patient with it and wait for better deal, but oh well.
7. What are your three favorite items right now?
MmM Rose print jsk in OW m MmM St. Peters lace in BKN m MmM anklestrap shoes m
MmM Rose print jsk in ow, MmM St. Peters lace round headdress in bkn and MmM ankle strap platforms.

Cute idea!

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?

The oldest item I own that I haven't sold off yet is the bunny applique dress on the right. It was actually an offbrand AP replica, but I hadn't realised there was a distinction between "brand", "offbrand" and "replica" back then. It doesn't fit very well but my mum bought it for me when I was first starting out in the fashion to show her support, so it has happy memories attached to it :)

2. What is the newest item?


3. What is the most expensive item?
This one's hard! I can't remember, but I think it's probably my Muguet dress (on the left):


4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item?
If you really want the cheapest item in my whole lolita wardrobe, it's probably one of the many floral corsages or headbands that I buy wholesale.
If you want the cheapest dress, I'd say probably this Black Peace Now Asymmetrical Skirt/JSK - yes, it was cheaper than Bodyline!


5. What was the biggest bargain?
My most recent dream dress acquisition - it's Mary Magdalene, one of my ultimate top 3 dream dresses and I got it in pristine condition for about 15k yen on Closet Child *___*


6. What was the biggest waste of money?!
It's hard to single down any one item as a waste of money, but I had the worst case of buyer's guilt when I bought AatP's 2013 witch hat completely on impulse, right after I'd told a friend I wouldn't buy such a seasonal item! You can see it on the top left here:

I really like it and can't really bring myself to sell it, but I still feel a heavy sense of guilt for spending money on such a frivolous item I'd never wear out of the house outside of costume events. Oh well, at least I'll be able to wear it for this year's office party...

7. What are your three favorite items right now?
Ooooh that's a tough one!

I really love my Mille Fleurs blouse in Ivory. I pair it with almost everything, and it's an instant upgrade to OTT classic.


JetJ's La Robe du Chateau (right) is still one of my favourite dresses of all time, and can always put a smile on my face:


Technically I'm cheating a bit with this last one, because it's more than one item. My favourite thing in my wardrobe right now is my MILK heart bag collection. I made a promise to myself at my earlier wardrobe post that I'd start working on that, and so far I've managed to acquire a black one, a pink one and a lavender one. I recently won an auction for a gold one and have put in a quote request at my shopping service for their new red one, so that's hopefully two more on the way! I use these bags more often than I probably should, but they're so cute and little girls really like them too.

(Sorry, no photo of the heart bags just yet ><")
