Mono's First Wardrobe Post!

Good day everyone! I haven't been into lolita for too long. I made my first purchase about two years ago, but lately I've been doing more downsizing and less buying now that I'm aware of what works for me and what doesn't. My wardrobe is actually a lot smaller than when I first started out. My phone camera kind of washes out some items so bear with me!


Metamorphose Sailor Dress and Chess Story's Mariage d'Amour (it's darker than it looks, but to be honest the black isn't as crisp as I would like it to be)

My two favorites! Excentrique and AATP's Melty Mermaid Princess JSK! My first brand purchase was actually the OP of this print, but that looked horrendous on my figure...I'm really glad I was able to buy this JSK since I love the print uvu (I'm a huge blackxpurple fan haha).

*not shown Metamorphose Princess Crown JSK in black, I lent it out to a friend & petticoats

Blouses & Cutsews

L-R: Metamorphose, Innocent World, F21, F21, offbrand and AATP (comes with a bowtie I forgot to add on)

I'm rather cheap when it comes to brand blouses...all of the above are bought from lucky pack sales~ I seem to have a thing for really ostentatious bell sleeves...


Metamorphose Blooming Garden in Black and Metamorphose Brilliant Princess in Blue! I really want to get my hands on the pinafore JSK but I've settled for having the skirt (for now haha). I also neglected to include the bow pin with the Blooming Garden...

Cat Window replica and Atelier Pierrot's Corset Bustle Skirt in Black (no shirring version). The AP bustle skirt was something I had my eyes on for a long time and I'm really glad I own it!


Bodyline Crown Cardigan and Meta's Brilliant Princess Socks in Blue~ I greatly prefer tights/pantyhose to socks hence why I only have one pair of socks. 

L-R: Bought from Etsy, Taobao brand, F21, F21, AATP Melty Mermaid, Chantilly, commissioned, AP wristicuffs

L-R: F21, Taobao, F21, Taobao,, F21, F21

Pleaser Mary Janes (not very comfortable...)

Season's BTSSB replica shoes

Offbrand boater hat and replica spade bag!

This year I'm going to try to find more versatile blouses (let's face it, bell sleeves are impractical for casual wear), as well as buy a few more dresses actually. I'm really disappointed in myself for missing lucky pack season u__u every year I promise to myself that I'll buy a lucky pack from IW or Meta and I never go through with it! I would also like to diversify my wardrobe a bit and buy more classic pieces and more simple clothes! I still have a tendency to snap up black and purple things though, thankfully that color combination is a bit on the rarer side. 

Well that's all! Thank you for stopping by~ if there any questions please let me know!
