Roli's Wardrobe Post 2015: Mostly classic, but a bit of everything

This marks about two and a half years in lolita for me, yay! Over the last year my wardrobe has both grown, and grown more cohesive. I'm still figuring out exactly what my style is, but I think I'm pretty much there now. I like florals! And berets. I've also discovered a love of coloured blouses. All in all, I'm really happy with how my wardrobe has developed, and I really like that though it's mostly classic I can pull fully sweet or fully gothic outfits from it as well.

I haven't pictured jewellery or smaller hair accessories becasue I don't wear them very much. Last years post, if anyone is interested for comparison, is here.

Jumperskirts

My newest and oldest JSKs together! I mentioned I like florals, didn't I? Anniversary Rose is my first piece of non-lucky pack brand-new brand that I've actually kept, and the brown JSK is just gorgeous.

I'm not 100% sure how well I like the empire waist of the red  chiffon dress on me, but it's go a lovely drape to it so I'm hanging on to it for a while. I modified the black JSK to have normal straps isntead of a halterneck and I like it much better now.

Lyris Design; Handmade
The Lyris dress was commissioned for my brithday present from my boyfriend last year and it is gorgeous! She made everything exactly how I wanted it. The handmade dress is my first attempt at a JSK and though I'm not completely happy with it I'm proud I finished it.

I don't wear this much, but I adore black and pink as a colour combo and I think the print is really cute.

I liked this OP so much I have it in two colours. The brown one has an awesome subdued vintage feel and the red one is so vibrant and colourful that it's great for brightening up cold days.

This dress has detachable sleeves and originally had tacky sating ribbons to bustle up the skirt with. After I got rid of both of those it's a rather nice dress, great for classic-leaning gothic looks.

Skirts

Yup, more florals. The MTP skirt had very shiny button on the wiast, which I removed because I don't like shiny buttons. And I especially love this Bodyline skirt, it's just so easy to wear.

Bodyline; Metamorphose
The Bodyline skirt is gorgeous, I really wish they still made floral pieces like this. The Meta skirt came to me in a lucky pack and originally I didn't like it on me so I put it up for sale. But no-one bought it and it grew on me over time so I'm glad I still have it!

I bought the cream skirt on a whim and the green on because I adore dark green in lolita! It's just such a rich colour, and I think it suits me.

The Chocoberry skirt is probably my most worn skirt as it's great for casual days and the candy skirt I made from the JSK version.

Handmade; Restyle
I made the old-school skirt for a photoshoot and earned the Restyle one by writing blog articles for an alternative fashion retailer.

My first skirt and something I really only wear for shoots now; even though it's adorable it's a little too sweet for my everyday tastes.

As for what I hope to achieve in the next year I have two main goals. The first is to really curb my spending on lolita; since I have a very well-rounded wardrobe now there's not much I need, and I'm trying not to buy things that I don't need. The second is to sew more! So my wardrobe can still grow, but without me buying things. Mostly I want to make more of my own JSKs and also some boleros, since my outerwear collection is still a bit limited, but I'd like to try my hand at making blouses as well eventaully.

I post fairly regularly on my blog, sporadically on my tumblr and photoshoots always go up on my facebook page first ^__^
