I started researching Lolita in earnest around November 2012 and then joined EGL about January 2013 (same time for wardrobe post season so that did a whole world of good for my jealousy -_-). So posting my wardrobe on here kind of brings it full circle for my first year eh? I mostly have Bodyline, offbrand finds and the occasional handmade good but I'm pretty surprised I've been able to amass quite a bit in one year... So here's my closet! Please enjoy looking through it! *bows*
Bodyline's L362 OP (tiered, bolero-style OP)
My younger sister says this one reminds her of Rapunzel's dress in Tangled. I'm hoping to remove the neck ribbons and lace on the sleeves in the near future since they both annoy me!
Bodyline's L322 JSK
I call this print Petite Sakura. :) At the time, this was the only JSK that appealed to me so I decided to spring for it. I'm glad I did, since it's very comfy!
Bodyline's L087 OP (cameo OP)
My latest purchase and the reason I waited to do this (well other than the fact my sister had to clear some pics out of the camera I borrowed). I've had this on my wishlist for a while so I'm glad I finally got to cross this off. It almost reminds me of Alice in Wonderland for some reason...
Hell Bunny sailor JSK
Okay this isn't Lolita (too low cut and a half inch of my petticoat peeks out from the hem), but I like it for evoking a stereotypical kawaii anime sailor girl!
Bodyline's Love Jewelry skirt
*sigh* My first Lolita garment (besides my petticoat). This was one of the first prints I fell in love with while I was researching Lolita fashion and I decided to make this a part of my first co-ord. I'd love to get the yukata in sax and the JSK in pink one day.
Bodyline's Chocoberry skirt
Someone recommended this skirt to me when I reached out for suggestions on expanding my wardrobe in a past post. They had suggested the skirt in lavender, but the black appealed to me more so...
Offbrand short-sleeved blouse
I found this in a consignment shop that specializes in teen/young adult clothes. I wore this all the time in warmer weather until I was able to get colored blouses. It has served me well! ^_^
Offbrand long-sleeved blouse
I found this at a local Goodwill when I was hunting for long-sleeved blouses for the fall/winter season. Not the best for Sweet Lolita, but I still wear this under my JSK. Also I noticed yellowing on the underarms when I was taking pictures... Lovely. -_-
Offbrand ruffled-front blouse
Another Goodwill find I'm glad for! Yeah there are ties down there, but tucked into a skirt or under a JSK, it doesn't matter. I should go ahead and get them removed though...
Offbrand colored blouses
I've had bad luck finding Loli-able colored blouses so I was really glad when I found these two. The lavender one is slightly see-through and has a subtle polka dot pattern on it.
I don't wear the white one that often since it's clingy and the bust area is one of those that can drape down to reveal my boobs. The pink one is a bit otome in my humble opinion (I also have the same cutsew in mint, but I don't use it for Lolita since it doesn't match my wardrobe).
Offbrand pink shrug
I bought this at Deb for my first co-ord. I think this is my lazy outerwear for warmer weather! :p
There's sequins in the fabric, which honestly surprised me (then again I don't think I looked closely enough at the stock picture...)
Offbrand pink cardigan
Goodwill find number four. I felt the fabric while setting up the picture for this and I think it's cashmere. I'll have to check later.
Offbrand cashmere cardigan
I definitely know that this is cashmere! This is honestly one of my best thrift store finds (it was only $5!) The buttons are tiny little rhinestone flowers!
Offbrand black cardigan
Wow that pic did not come out well... there are some raised ruffles on the sides which did not come up in the picture obviously.
Offbrand ruffly pink cardigan
Honestly this looks a little more like a jacket, but how could I not pass this up in the thrift store?
Shoes (pink shoes from Bodyline, the others are offbrand)
I wear my black Mary-Janes all the time, even outside of Lolita so I think this might be the only time you get to see them. The pink ones have been with me since the beginning and they're pretty comfy. The oxblood colored shoes are probably the only shoes I've found that work with Lolita AND appealed to me. So far at least.
Socks (first two are Bodyline, stockings are all from Hot Topic, tights are offbrand)
The second pair of tights from the right are lace and the other is opaque. I need to get more socks...
The larger of the white bags I found at Charlotte Russe for $15 on sale!
The red one I bought a long time ago at Wal-Mart and I crocheted the berets from a pattern I found online.
Okay these are just PJ shorts I've had for a long time, but still!
It's Malco Modes 512 petticoat which I bought via Sweet Rococo. I stuff it in the Bodyline shoebox above it.
Detachable waist ties and bows
The large white one is from Sweet Mildred, the purple one is from a booth at Katsucon last year and all the others are from Claire's or Icing
The rose one I picked up at a local craft fair but the other three I crocheted myself using a pattern I found online.
The candy ones are from Bodyline, the blue ribbon was from a random AnimeUSA booth, and the patterned ones are from Hikari wo Sagasu (an indie accessories brand). All others are from Claire's or Icing.
Everything's offbrand here, except for the wrist cuffs which I crocheted. I'm going to be uploading the pattern soon!
The first five on the left are from lia Sophia and everything else is offbrand (aka: I've had them for ages and I can't remember how they arrived in my jewelry box)
All offbrand (necklaces are my go-to trinkets in and out of Lolita!)
The black flower and purple stone rings are from lia Sophia, the other two I don't know
The rose and strawberry rings are from Lucky Squid Studios (a booth at AnimeUSA). The other two I've had for ages.
Brooches and a lone pendant
The Sailor Moon pin was a Christmas gift from a friend, the cameo came from my blue OP and the pendant was found by my mom at Jo-Anns. I'd make a necklace with it, but the last time I did it popped off. One of these days...
Thanks for looking through my wardrobe! If you have any questions about a specific piece, let me know in the comments! Bye bye!
