Hello everyone! This is my first wardrobe post despite wearing lolita fashion for 5+ years now. I've finally graduated school and now have more time (and money!) to devote to lolita. Many of the JSKs you'll see here are ones I acquired just in the past year.
In case you haven't noticed already, I LOVE CAT PRINTS! Seriously, it's my dream to collect all the prints that prominently feature cats, as long as they are items I would actually wear. Lucky for me (but unlucky for my bank account), there are not many cat prints I don't like (except maybe for AatP Trick Cat Skirt... :P ).
I issue an open challenge: if you think you have more cat JSKs/OPs/skirts than I do, show me your wardrobe!! You'll win... I dunno, one of my nine lives or something. Anyway, I'll be impressed/jealous.
So here is my wardrobe, categorized neatly into Cat/Non-Cat stuff. I apologize in advance for the crappy editing of photos (blame the bad lighting in my room). Enjoy!
Haenuli - Royal Kitten
I love the way this fabric feels. So soft and cool to the touch!
AP - Cat's Tea Party
One of my dream dresses. Luckily one popped up on Mbok right in time for my first paycheck!
AP - Vanilla Chan
Some day I'd like the matching headbow + necklace. I also should get the lavender socks, even though I already have them in pink.
JetJ - Le Cadre du Chat
The things you notice when you have too many cat things. See the Muchacha cat bag? One of the cats in the JetJ print is actually the same cat! Even though they are different brands! I guess they used the same stock victorian cat pictures... Can you guess which one?
Japanese Indie Brand
Adorable dress for summer.

Metamorphose - Bubble Bath
I loved the print, but the JSK/OP were not good shapes for me. So skirt it was!
Putumayo Replica - Cat Window
The last remaining replica of my wardrobe. I can't bring myself to get rid of it, because I love it!
IW - Little Lady
aka Catterflies! How awesome are catterflies?? I now wish I had the JSK version, though.
IW - Classical Cat
Bought this in 2008. Before IW even had international shipping! I remember getting the skirt because it was cheaper and had an awesome bustle back, but now I wish I had the JSK.
IW - Cat Pattern
Love this print. JSK is also on my wishlist, although the skirt is great for casual coordinates!
I love these leopard bloomers by Meta. They're so soft! I only ever saw the skirt print before, and I had no idea they made bloomers with the print until I saw this pair on Y!Japan auctions for less than 500 yen!

cat tights + socks
sakizo (omg, these are amazing), putumayo (I really like these but my legs are too wide for them ;_; probably going to sell, although secondhand tights are hard to sell), ophanim, offbrand, AP, bodyline.
Missing: grimoire cat socks
acahcuhm muchacha, offbrand, swimmer, offbrand from anime boston.
On the rare days that I don't wear cat-themed clothes, I usually at least use a cat bag.
I want to get Lief's Matryoshka OP just so I can wear it with the Matryoshka cat necklace (by Yuko Higuchi). Is it silly to buy a dress because of a necklace? No. It is not silly.
Lief - Sacred Night
Another dream dress. I am in awe of this print.
I need a new bonnet though since the one I have is a few shades too light.
I don't wear this too often anymore, but I just love how colorful it is. It will probably become my go-to valentine's day dress.
Thrifted! + underskirt from my mom.
The cut, the colors were a perfect fit! and only $20!
I don't wear it too much anymore, but this print got a lot of love in its day.
AatP - Melty Mermaid
My first Japanese brand JSK! I fell in love with it after seeing it in person at Tokyo Rebel.
One of my top three favorite dresses from Forever 21.
Forever 21 + chiffon petticoat from americal apparel
Another favorite dress from Forever 21!
I also love this petticoat. It's SO soft and nice.

Bodyline - Black Polka Dot
A girl in my comm gave me this for free (how nice!!). It's actually quite nice, nice for going casual!
Thrifted - lavender gingham
some day I want to add a lacey trim to this skirt
BtssB - sax polka dot
My first Japanese brand skirt! I got it on my trip to Japan in 2008.
In the Starlight - velveteen skirt
This skirt is so beautiful. The details are hard to see in this pic, but the velveteen has an embossed-like floral pattern on it. I like to wear it every christmas.
Sweet Rococo - sparkly unicorns
Who doesn't like sparkly unicorns? Actually, I don't wear this skirt much anymore, due to wearing less sweet, and I want to sell it.
Bodyline - butterflies
good for punk!
just some of my favorite blouses. I'm dissatisfied with a lot of my blouses, and the ones I do like are often hard to coordinate xD definitely a goal for 2014 is to get better blouses.
sweaters. mostly forever 21, and a couple other random places.
coats. vintage (left) and bodyline (right)
I'd also like to get a nice black coat, and maybe a nice brown/tan coat.
other tights + socks
I've kind of gotten addicted to tights in the past year. seriously, I get several new ones each month. I just can't resist the perfect tights though!!
The left side is all bodyline, tea parties are Secret Shop (they are sax, although they look white here), cat mary janes from TUK shoes, and the rest are random offbrand.
necklaces + bracelets.
Seems that I have too many sweet bracelets, too few sweet necklaces, and too few classic bracelets.
rings + other accessories
~ Goals for 2014 ~
Let's see 2014 bring in EVEN MORE CATS!! >:D
I'd also like to get more good basics, like blouses and accessories. I tend to buy things that I like, rather than things that will go well with what I already have, so even though I have a lot, it's still hard to make good outfits x)
I'm surprised that despite innocent world being one of my favorite brands, I have none of their JSKs. That should change.
Also maybe I should get some more gothic lolita.
