♥ Picardia's 2014 Wardrobe Post! ♥ Iron Gate, Bisque Doll, Antique:BeasT, Old School & much more

Picardia's Wardrobe pos 2t copy

Disclaimer: I have been living in my basement while renovating the main floor of my house, but I couldn't miss this opportunity to catalogue my wardrobe this year. These pictures were taken without any natural light, so I apologize if the photos are grainy or dingy.. Also, no legwear/jewellery photos since everything is packed up until I move upstairs again!

I first discovered lolita in 2003 when I was 14. I started dressing in the fashion in October of that year, and though I loved darker substyles, I believed the myth western lolitas could never fit Moitie, and started collecting Baby.(The most popular/common brand around 2005-2007) After a brief hiatus, a friend introduced me to gothic/ero lolita when she sold me my first Antique:Beast OP in 2009. Ever since then, I've been slowly putting together an ecclectic wardrobe primarily ero/gothic/classic in nature.

♥ ♥JSKS♥ ♥

1
Atelier Boz Underbust JSK - I'm currently babysitting this dress - which means I can't wear it! A friend left it with me but I have yet purchased it
1a
Mary Madgalene Mint JSK - This dress has the prettiest lace. Worn for a photoshoot and meetup in Calgary, spring of 2013
1b
BtSSB Swan Lake JSK in Pink - I love the silhouette of this dress, lower waisted sweet items were always my favourite when I still dressed in Sweet. Even though I don't wear sweet, I can't let this one go yet. I also have the matching bag. Worn for fun in June 2013
2
BtSSB Floral JSK - Worn for a twinning picnic with my friend ellorgast ♥
3
Mary Magdalene Albertine OP - Worn in my 2013 Outfit Summary on Tumblr... More to come! ♥
4
Mary Magdalene Tweed Rose JSK - I adore this dress, it's so cozy in the colder months. I prefer to tie the waist like this to add more detail to the dress. Worn in 2009 during a tour of the Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, BC ♥
5
This dress was one of my dream JSKs from Innocent World! I love the smooth silhouette, however I haven't yet found an opportunity to wear it.
6
Innocent World Toy Parade JSK - I bought this new as it was my absolute dream dress from IW -- unfortunately this looks terribly awkward on my bust and I will have to sell it. I've kept it around for so long in hopes that I will find a way to coordinate it in a flattering way, but I think it's time to let go.
6b
Plaid IW set--actually a skirt and a vest! I also have the prince pants to match the set, though they are currently packed away!
7
BtSSB BxW JSK - I have kept this because it is the WORLD'S MOST COMFORTABLE JSK. I wear it constantly. My husband calls it my mumu, I call it my house dress. Super simple but I really like this! Worn back in June of 2013 for a comfy day in
8
Moi-meme-Moitie Side Lace Up Cross JSK. This dress is made out of the most SPECTACULAR fabric. It feels like cashmere and has the most wonderful drape ever. I got this at Closet Child in Shinjuku and stare at it all the time. Worn in my 2013 Outfit Summary on Tumblr ♥
9
Moi-meme-Moitie Holy Stained Glass Print JSK -- One of my favourite dresses ever, the print is silver and sparkles really nicely. The boning has a great silhouette. Worn for a contest on EGL in 2011
10
AaTP Versailles JSK - Picked this up at Closet Child Harajuku. Can you tell I like drop waist, boned JSKs?
11
Antique:BeasT Bat JSK. Absolutely love this dress. Worn for a con in Calgary 2013

♥ OPs ♥
a
JetJ Bisque Doll OP - Dream Dress <3 Picked this up in Closet Child Harajuku. The detail in this dress is incredible. I have plans to wear with with an Excentrique corset.
b
Moi-Meme-Moitie Royal Gate OP. There are no words for how gorgeous this dress is. I own Iron Gate in 2 colourways and I have to say... I actually think Royal Gate takes the cake.. I love the clean silhouette and the simplicity that brings me back to the early days of MmM. Just received from Moitie last week and I haven't had a chance to wear it yet. The colourway is hard to photograph, but it's very visible in person.
c
Antique:BeasT Azalea Plain OP. This dress is gorgeous, and was my first step back in to gothic/ero. It's low in the front and back. A friend of mine ordered this straight from A:B but sold it to me after she realized that they were out of the printed material and it came in a plain black fabric. I love the drape of this fabric. Worn in 2009 as part of a photoshoot
d
Antique:BeasT Azalea Original OP - I bought this after I owned the plain OP, the fabric difference is subtle but definitely lends another feeling to the OP and I feel like both of them are the reigning queens of my wardrobe. Worn to a Tokyo Decadance party and documented in my 2013 Outfit Summary on Tumblr ♥
e
Atelier Boz OP - This dress is really lovely but I can't see myself wearing it anymore
f
BtSSB OP - This dress is insane. I plan on some kind of undead-vampire-princess-guro costume for halloween using this dress someday. It's pretty epic.
g
Moi-Meme-Moitie Cage OP in Ivory. This dress was my first Moitie dress back in 2005. Back then, it was kind of rare to come accross Moitie, and I never thought I would be able to fit it (There was an ongoing myth about foreigners never being able to fit brand, and I didn't own any at the time)  I saw a blurry ivory image on ebay with a starting bid of 9.99. I thought it was hoax and couldn't be Moitie, but I bid anyways and won the auction for $15.50. When this arrived, I burst into tears because I couldn't believe it was a real dress. It is the most stunning piece in person, the torchon lace is EXTREMELY fine, and the skirt has a layer of tulle sewn over it. It's stunning. Worn in my 2013 Outfit Summary on Tumblr ♥
h
BtSSB - Mary Rose OP in Pink. This is the same OP that the infamous Mabet owned, EGL's first large scale scammer. She was kind of legendary after that whole debacle went down. Anyways, this dress doesn't suit me and my style anymore.

♥ ♥ Skirts ♥ ♥
1
Moi-meme-Moitie - Chandelier Print SK in Ivory. This skirt is so pretty, but I've never worn it.
2
Moi-meme-Moitie - Iron Gate print Sk in WhitexBlack. One of the crowning jewels of my wardrobe. This skirt is just as amazing as you'd expect, and I'm currently waiting on the blackxwhite version to twin with a friend of mine. I don't like the fit of the JSK or the OP very much, so the skirt is perfect for my taste Coordinate collage after I received the skirt
3
BtSSB Alice is Sleeping print SK in Ivory. This skirt has a gorgeous textured fabric and a lovely bustle. I can't get rid of this yet even though I don't wear sweet.. ♥
4
BtSSB Bustle Skirt in Off White - I had dreams of wearing this with a red turtleneck cutsew but never got around to it. Probably going to sell this.
5
Baby the Stars Shine Bright Cinderella Sk in Off-White ♥ This is my dream print from Baby, at one point I owned 5 pieces from this series, but I've since trimmed down my collection.
6
Baby the Stars Shine Bright Cinderella Sk in Pink ♥ I love the burgundy accents in this print
7
Baby the Stars Shine Bright High-waisted Corset Skirt. Quite cute, but I've owned this skirt for about 6 years and have never worn it, I should get rid of it.
8
Baby the Stars Shine Bright Rose Pattern Torchon Lace SK in Red - This is a very, very early skirt from Baby (2001). It was my first purchase on Yahoo Japan and I've never once considered selling it. I still have so much fondness for oldschool ♥ The elastic waist is so comfy!
9
Baby the Stars Shine Bright Alice Chess print SK in Black. This was another dream print, but I sold my dream colourway of redxwhite for some reason. This was once a very popular series.

1 ♥ Moi-meme-Moitie Holy Stained Glass SK in BKN - I love this print, but since I acquired my side lace up JSK, I can't see myself wearing this skirt and will probably part with it. Lovely, flattering silhouette.

2 ♥ IW High-waisted Tiered SK (I'm sure that's not the original name) This skirt is my go-to. It has a great silhouette and a gorgeous tiered ruffle in the back.

3 ♥ BPN Flocked Chiffon SK in Black. Adore this skirt, I wear it with my Azalea OPS often.

4 ♥ Victorian maiden Gathered SK om Black. Very simple, but gorgeous and detailed at the same time.
