Hi EGL! First Wardrobe Post, Wow they take a long time! Hope I'm not too late...

Come have a nose through my wardrobe! I have been into Lolita fashion since 2009 officially I always loved it before, but didn't know what it was called and did not like the quality of the UK options available in Camden (though I did once own a 'lace monster' dress from Camden), or those available on eBay. I styled myself in the essence of Lolita, heavily influenced by vintage fashion-in particular the 40s and 50s. I found out more by chatting to Lolita's at MCM Expo, and when they said their clothes were from Japan I was like 'this is never going to happen for me'! It was at Hyper Japan 2009 that I first saw BTSSB, and it was like everything I wished for in a dream in my head actually existed in real life! However, the price tag was not so workable for me

I purchased my first brand dress at Hyper Japan 2010, Innocent World's Frederick Lace jsk for an absolute steel! I was so excited and was invited to join the Tea Party Club meets. I was like, is it okay if I'm not a 'proper' Lolita?! They are all lovely ladies with various interests/jobs an inspiring wardrobes, and I do feel like I fit in with the girls really well. It's so much fun to get dressed up and go out in mass

Slowly, I have sold almost my entire vintage 40s & 50s collection and bought my Lolita collection painstakingly one loving piece at a time. My wardrobe is mostly second hand or sale. I have only one jsk that I got as a gift full price, and my husband's eyes nearly popped out of his head when we got the import duty slip! Phew, I'm sure he won't forget that in a hurry! So, learning from that I am ever the bargain hunter. Though I may never be on a waiting list for an adored print, I will get it eventually somehow! My friend told me about all the best ways to buy second hand, and although there have been a few iffy finds, I've always found a way to sell/trade anything that I am not fully happy with.

So let us begin...Innocent World Museum Bear Jsk, Innocent World Frederick Lace Jsk
