A Smattering of Sax Suits

I first got into lolita in 2005. I made my first awful post to EGL that year, and was consequentially butt hurt by the criticism (very fair criticism; I was just young) I received. It wasn't until about 2008 that I actually tried to put together an outfit again. I had learned a lot since my first attempts, and had restarted my wardrobe from the ground up. I took some risks, did some experiments, and had a lot of fun in lolita until an incident over one of my risks drove me out of lolita again.

I haven't actually worn lolita since 2010. I wasn't sure if I was going to wear lolita again. There was a lot of negativity associated with it for me now, and I sold off everything I used to own. Gradually, however, I started to gain a little more self-confidence, a little more strength, and I started to purchase pieces again. I still haven't worn lolita again yet, though.

I like to wear dark colors in the autumn and winter, and light colors in the spring and summer. I don't actually like brand very much, so I try my best not to purchase it is I can help it. I don't have much of a wardrobe, but this is what I have so far:


all handmade items are NOT made by me


Bow from the sales community
2 handmade sax skirts
Loris bag
MOTH cardigan


Cardigan close-up


Hello Kitty Sailor bag. It's old, but I love it. I have a dream of going sailing with this.


Christmas Kittens handmade skirt
Loris bag


Bodyline boots
