Hi all! This is my second wardrobe post and you can see last year’s here. I bought my first Lolita item around Feb 2011 and started wearing it regularly later that year. I love toned down sweet and classic Lolita.
The wardrobe is divided in two by inbuilt shelves. The Lolita items are on the right side of the division and non-lolita clothes are on the left (not pictured).
The Lolita section is further divided into classic (left) and sweet (right) styles. I think a lot of dresses/skirts can be both sweet and classic but they are divided in my wardrobe based on how I wear them in an outfit.
I used to hang my clothes with lovely puffy silk hangers but realised that they took up more space than the regular plastic ones so I switched back.
Dresses and Skirts
IW is my favourite classic Lolita brand. I remember being so inspired by their Lauretta Rose spread in the GLB. I haven’t found it yet but I’m pretty happy with what I have so far. Most of my favourite IW items have the word "rose" somewhere in the title :P
Juliette et Justine
I love their use of jewel tones and chiffon.
I love their elaborate classic dresses. I don’t wear them often but they’re just so beautiful to own. I’d been looking for Petit Fours for ages and finally found it with the help of a friend!
I hope to grow my little JM collection because their dresses are so wearable and are another brand that isn’t afraid of colour.
Baby the Stars Shine Bright
I also own Twinkle Constellation in Yellow but it's packaged up and ready for someone to purchase it!
Alice and the Pirates
Usually too piratey for me but there are some styles that catch my eye!
Chess chocolate was difficult to obtain. I lost my SS spot twice after the reservation rule madness but was able to snag the set on the San Francisco site. Better yet, it coincided with a holiday so I was able to pick it up in person! (I live in Australia) I had a pretty bad fever when I picked it up too (makeup melting off my face etc.) which made the situation even more dramatic.
Holy Night Story was my first brand purchase and it was another ordeal. I was charged twice and not refunded for a month and didn’t think to order anything except the JSK and OTKs (having no blouse, headdress, accessories etc. at the time). I also received it during a heatwave which prevented me from even trying it on for days.

The rest of the hats are in the hallway closet.
My accessories are kept in a small white cabinet near the wardrobe which is also a full length mirror. Here are photos of a selection of them:
I love wearing flowers in my hair!
I now keep my socks folded in a box. I have a few pairs of tights as well but most are solid colour or lace printed. I also own a pair of JetJ’s cross printed tights. They sit in a box in the other half of the closet.
I absolutely love shoes but just didn't have the time to photograph them this year but here is another snippet of the collection in the hallway closet.
I'm also expecting these items in the mail:
I’ve really enjoyed the wardrobe posts this month and I hope you enjoyed mine. Thanks for reading!
