♥Lavenderlillies' Wardrobe Post♥

lavenderlillieswardrobe

Welcome to my wardrobe post!  I made an effort to take nicer pictures of my collection this year and give each individual piece more attention.  I typically wear lolita and related fashions 4 to 6 times a week, so my wardrobe for it has gotten kind of big and difficult to organize.  On top of that, I also manage the secondhand clothing shop Miss Harajuku, so that adds up to way too many clothes in my apartment!  This helped me sort through and reorganize them a bit.

Please enjoy!

Onepiece Dresses


IMG_2479

Mary Magdalenene ~ Petit Four OP
This is one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe and one of the most elaborate construction-wise.  I'm just a huge fan of MM's dresses overall.

IMG_2483
Alice and the Pirates ~ Gloria ~Beautiful Glassy Saint Mary~ OP
I paid more for this than anything else in my collection, but it was so worth it.  The print is gorgeous.

IMG_2486
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Velveteen OP
It's missing the original collar, but I like the square neckline better.

IMG_2495
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Traumerei of Bright Stars OP
I got this a few days before Christmas and only got to wear it a few times.  I have to wait a year for it to be seasonal again.

IMG_2500
Alice and the Pirates ~ Relief Print OP
The chiffon is beautiful.  Unfortunately, the front bustle is see-through, so you need an opaque petticoat or underskirt.

IMG_2504
Emily Temple Cute ~ Bonbon Chocolate Print Cutsew Dress
I bought this when ETC first opened its online store.  It's on sale now though ;_;

IMG_2512
Angelic Pretty ~ Schoolmate OP
I tragically lost the bow attachment at a convention and never saw it again, but it still looks ok without it.  This dress is super short on me, to where the waist is more like an underbust, so I usually wear an underskirt with it.

IMG_2519
Mary Magdalene ~ Whyteleaf OP (2013 release)
My birthday present last year <3  It had been one of my dream dresses, and I still hope to get the long-sleeve version some day.

Jumperskirts

IMG_2476
Mary Magdalene ~ Burberry JSK
A really beautiful older MM dress.  There's a lot of attention to detail in the pintucks and gathers.

IMG_2481
Alice and the Pirates ~ Hymn Print JSK
Another one of my favorite dresses, and one of the only ones I want in more than one color.

IMG_2488
Moi meme Moitie ~ Orchestra Print Dress
It's really well preserved for being from 2001.  It's the only print I know of that's embossed onto velvet like that, so it's a really unique piece to me.  I'm definitely holding onto it, even if I stop wearing lolita.

IMG_2492
Alice and the Pirates ~ Rose Ornamental JSK II
It's so comfy!  I'm slowly growing my collection of babydoll-cut dresses just because I love them so much.

IMG_2494
Innocent World ~ Tulle Lace Cross JSK
This one is really good for toned down classic.  Unfortunately, it's wool and attracts lint like crazy.

IMG_2497
Jane Marple
This is another one for casual days.  It's worn down and the fabric is faded in some parts, but I still love it.

IMG_2502
Excentrique
This one fits me the best out of any brand dresses thanks to the halter neck ties and corset lacing in the back.  The fabric is really neat too - I have a thing for printed jacquard.

IMG_2506
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Halloween Alice Print JSK
One of my favorite Baby Prints <3  I might sell it though, now that I have the underbust jsk in gray.

IMG_2508
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Thumbelina JSK
An old school print :D

IMG_2509
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Chest Shirring Karami JSK
It looks simple at first glance, but there is a lot of attention to detail, especially in the bodice.  It was super short on me, so I had to lengthen the straps.

IMG_2514
Angelic Pretty ~ Candy Sprinkle JSK
I don't normally wear sweet prints, but this is one of my favorites.  I adore anything from AP that reminds me of a carnival at night (Sugary Carnival and Magical Etoile being my other main two).  This dress is only 84 cm, so I'm probably only going to wear it with an underskirt.

IMG_2518
Milk ~ Hearts & Roses Dress
Super cute otome-style piece.  I love the flocky print on it, and it fits me really well.

IMG_2522
Emily Temple Cute ~ Tea Time Print Dress
I've worn this one a lot and I still love it.  It's one of my favorite ETC prints.

IMG_2524
Emily Temple Cute ~ Picnic Print Dress
I only wear this one during the summer, but I still need to wear it on a picnic.

IMG_2526
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Baby Ribbon JSK
This was part of a new year lucky pack two years ago.  It's a more casual piece that I wear to work often.

IMG_2528
Juliette et Justine ~ Ange et Bouquet Robe
My only JetJ piece.  I'm not always a fan of their OTT classic style, but this one stood out to me.  I'm hoping to get some of their older pieces this year.

IMG_2694
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Halloween Alice Underbust JSK
This is the only print series I have more than one piece from.  I would wear it any time of the year.

Skirts


IMG_2558
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Searching for Baroque Skirt
The print is so gorgeous and detailed, but it's also busy and hard to coordinate.

IMG_2574
Angelic Pretty ~ Sugary Carnival Skirt (2nd release)
This was one of my dream pieces, and I'm still happy to have it despite how common it became.

IMG_2575
Angelic Pretty ~ Country of Sweets (1st release)
My first brand print!  It's really different from any of AP's other prints and still very special to me.

IMG_2559
Alice and the Pirates ~ Merry Making in Ghost Town Skirt & The Black Cat, the Witch, and the Apple Tree Skirt
I wear these year round, even though they're for Halloween.  A/P's corset skirts are really flattering on me since I'm a little on the tall side.

IMG_2573
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Cherry Cherry Fallin' Cherry Skirt & Cherry Bouquet Skirt
It should be obvious by now I'm a fan of prints on a black background.  It really makes the colors pop, imo.

IMG_2555
Millefleurs & Heart E
The Millefleurs skirt is a good basic in my classic wardrobe.  I use the Heart E skirt as an underskirt.

IMG_2562
Emily Temple Cute
I don't know the names of these prints.  They're part of the casual-cute side of my wardrobe.

IMG_2564
Emily Temple Cute ~ Umbrella Print Skirt & Rabbit School Tweed Skirt
The ETC skirt is such a lovely print, but hard to coordinate.  I would love to have the gray dress some day.

IMG_2566
Angelic Pretty ~ Dream Sky Skirt (1st release)
Baby, The Stars Shine Bright ~ Angel Grosgrain Skirt
Saxe blue isn't really my color, but the print is so pretty!  I would like it in lavender though.  I have surprisingly little lavender in my wardrobe considering I really like the color (and it's in my username).

IMG_2569
Moi me Moitie ~ flower lace print skirt and Ritual Print Skirt
I adore the flocky print on my ritual skirt.  Royal Gate is now on my wishlist as another Moitie flocky print I need.

IMG_2571
Black Peace Now
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Karami Tiered Skirt
My two basic black skirts - I use the karami skirt as an underskirt a lot of the time.

IMG_2577
Emily Temple Cute ~ sweets print & present box print skirts
My two otome-style print skirts in black.

IMG_2580
Angelic Pretty ~ Royal Unicorn Skirt & Royal Chocolate Skirts
I'm surprised Royal Unicorn wasn't more popular, since it's one of AP's most luxurious prints.  It's made of a thick tapestry-type fabric that the print is woven into.  Royal Chocolate is another fantastic fabric, but it didn't show up as well as I'd hoped in the photo.

IMG_2582
Bodyline & Emily Temple Cute
This is the only Bodyline piece I have, since I'm not really into their stuff.  I'm trying to sell the ETC skirt since it's not flattering on me, as much as I like the fabric.

IMG_2583
Jane Marple & Peace Now
The JM skirt is one of the prettiest pieces in my collection.  It's made of a tapestry fabric with velvet scalloped trim *_*  The Peace Now skirt is another beautiful velvet piece, but unfortunately some of the sequins on the crowns came off, so it doesn't look that great now.

IMG_2529
Metamorphose
It's tweed with a velvet hem.  The heavy material makes it great for winter (admittedly, winter is pretty mild here though).

IMG_2531
Black Peace Now
This one is pretty well-worn since it's one of my most casual skirts and also good for layering.

IMG_2532
Jane Marple
This is my only mermaid skirt.  It's no a great cut on me, but I like this piece anyway.

IMG_2535
Black Peace Now
It's sheer, so I use it as an underskirt or an overskirt.

IMG_2537
Black Peace Now
It's the same as the skirt above, just in black.  I love being able to wear lolita with a longer skirt, since it looks pretty while covering my legs a lot more.

Pants


IMG_2538
Alice and the Pirates

IMG_2539
They have a detachable butt-cape.

IMG_2540
Heart E.
I'm not sure why I have these.  The plaid is a little overwhelming.  I need to work them into a decent boystyle coordinate sometime.

IMG_2541
Alice and the Pirates ~ Sylvester Pants
These pants are pretty versatile - I can dress them up or down depending on the shirt.

IMG_2543
Innocent World ~ Flap Pocket Half Pants
My perfect boystyle pants.  I just haven't worn them yet ;_;

IMG_2544

IMG_2545
Metamorphose
Brand pants that aren't for boystyle - instead they're super retro and cute.

IMG_2546
Alice and the Pirates ~ Imperial Pants
Kind of a weird shape, but they pair really well with the Azure Vest.

Other Main Pieces


IMG_2489
Alice and the Pirates ~ Regimental Latte Salopette
I don't know why this one was so unpopular since it's super cute (and has pockets).  I got it from Baby's new year sale last year.

IMG_2516
Alice and the Pirates ~ Trick Cat Romper
My tacky brand treasure.  Why is it olive green and why are the pants all poofy?  I'm not sure if it's supposed to be roomwear or not.

Vests


IMG_2692
Alice and the Pirates ~ Azure Vest
This is the latest addition to my collection.  It really upgraded the boystyle portion of my wardrobe.

IMG_2590
Alice and the Pirates ~ Tartan Check Vest & Teufel von Hamelm Vest
Victorian Maiden ~ Velveteen Rose Corset
The bustier/corset is a lovely oldschool piece from 2001.  It reminds me of Vivienne Westwood.

IMG_2606
Alice and the Pirates ~ Wicked Lace Bolero

Outerwear


IMG_2547
Alice and the Pirates
This is my go-to coat for gothic lolita.

IMG_2548
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright
I wear this parka all the time.  The double zipper allows me to only have the top half zipped so that there's room for a lolita skirt underneath.

IMG_2549
Metamorphose
The teddy bears are all on pins.  I usually don't wear the jacket with them on.

IMG_2550
Milk
This is my go-to coat for sweet lolita or light-colored otome outfits.

IMG_2628
Offbrand, but it's so perfect for gothic lolita.

Blouses


IMG_2586
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright

IMG_2591
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ BABY Cafe Blouse
Angelic Pretty ~ Candy Sprinkle Blouse

IMG_2594
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Lourdes Blouse
Metamorphose

IMG_2595
Moi meme Moitie
Innocent World ~ Frill Ribbon Standing Collar Blouse

IMG_2598
Emily Temple Cute
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Candy Dot Blouse
The brown x teal color is really unusual, so it's a challenge to coordinate.

IMG_2599
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Pin Tucked Sleeve Double Collar Blouse
I got this blouse because I liked the design, but it's too big on me all around.  I'll probably sell it when I get another black blouse.

IMG_2602
Innocent World ~ Flavie Check Blouse
Peace Now

IMG_2697
My offbrand blouse collection.  I tend to get them for the collars and wear them under jumperskirts or cardigans.

Cutsews and Cardigans


IMG_2605
Angelic Pretty ~ Polka Dot Chocolate Cutsew
Angelic Pretty ~ Royal Chocolate Parka
handmade sailor-collar cutsew from an Innocent World pattern in the GLB

IMG_2609
Milk

IMG_2610
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Starry Cutsew
Angelic Pretty ~ Dream Sky Parka
That Baby cutsew has been on the outlet section of the website for so long.  I have no idea why because it's adorable.

IMG_2612
Kyary Mame Pamyu parka
Angelic Pretty ~ Sugary Carnival Parka
The Kyary parka matches perfectly with my ETC present box skirt.

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Chocolate Cardigan & biscuit cutsew
I love the melting chocolate look on the cardigan.  It goes great with Regimental Latte and Royal Chocolate.

IMG_2625
Putumayo
h.Naoto

IMG_2627
Peace Now
I bought this from the Black Peace Now SF store when it was still around.  I love the little embroidered devil ghost sticking out of the pocket.

IMG_2631
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright ~ Heart Drop Cardigan
Metamorphose

IMG_2633
Angelic Pretty ~ Holy Cross Print Cutsew
Milk
Jane Marple
I adore pieces that are black with white cuffs and collar.  I hope to add some dresses like that to my collection, but for now I have these.

IMG_2634
Peace Now
h.Naoto
The length of the h.Naoto piece can be adjusted with the drawstrings on the side, so it can be worn like a dress or a shirt.

Innocent World ~ Ribbon and Pearl Camisole

The Algonquins shirt was my first Japanese brand piece, from before I even started wearing lolita.  I still love it <3

Here's a closeup of this very silly piece.  I've only worn it a few times since it's so OTT.

IMG_2719
I rarely wear earrings since my skin is allergic to metal (sounds weird, I know), and my ears are particularly sensitive.  I got the Searching for Baroque earrings since they have plastic posts.

IMG_2721
I have more rings, but these are my lolita-specific ones.

My one pair of brand tights, but the only ones I need.  There's a sort of garter on the print, with a cat on the back.
I have a lot of offbrand tights that I wear with lolita, mostly because I'm able to get them in a tall size.

Baby, the Stars Shine Bright & Angelic Pretty

I wish I could share cute room pictures, but sadly, my room and closet aren't very cute since I live with my significant other.  I won't subject him to pink walls and stuffed animals everywhere, haha.  He wears Black Peace Now and Alice and the Pirates, but he's not nearly the clothing collector that I am.  We just both have a rather bland aesthetic when it comes to decorating.

As some of you may know, I work at Baby, the Stars Shine Bright.  A lot of this is my work wardrobe.  It's a challenge to be creative with my outfits when I have to get up an get dressed so often, but I think I do alright :)  I still enjoy getting dressed up in other brands when I go to meetups and conventions.  I also bring a lot of my casual pieces into my everyday wardrobe, especially the ones from goth/punk brands like Black Peace Now and h.Naoto.  I try to wear a variety of styles and keep posting daily outfit shots on my tumblr.

Any questions and comments (and compliments, haha) are welcomed.  Thank you for looking! (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧
