This is the first wardrobe post I have ever made. I started collecting the fashion almost two years ago now, but finally my wardrobe is getting some cohesion, and now I am finally ready to share it! I got a dress form for the occasion too. I decided to include a few close up of details that I love, and any tales to go with the pieces along the way. The last images are of items that I am waiting on via the post or with a pre-order.
I hope you all enjoy looking at my wardrobe ^_^
Angelic Pretty Melty Cream Donut Skirt & OTKs + Innocent World blouse + Secret Shop tea parties + handmade donut necklace
The accessory was made by an Australian lolita who I was sending a skirt to, and it was just perfect for my Melty Cream Donut. MCD was my first must have, can not live with out print. My partner got it for me for Christmas, with matching Ivory OTKs. I had no idea what colourway I was getting as it was surprise.
Alice and the Pirates Grimoire of the Moonlight Forest JSK II + Dream-V blouse + Alice and the Pirates canotier + offbrand rose clip + Secret Shop tea parties
The print on this dress is breathtaking. The details are so exquisite- I just love the occult and religious illustrations! I purchased the canotier seperately, and the rose clip I found at a chemist Rockhampton. The rose is so versatile, and I often wear it with a lot of co-ordinates.
Alice and the Pirates Mermaid in the Jewelry Box Skirt + Dream-v blouse + Secret Shop tea parties + handmade bat clip
My housemate picked up this skirt for me when he was in Japan. He stalked out the AatP store in Tokyo, and he felt a little awkward at 6'5 with a beard, in a frilly dress shop. I let him surprise me and he picked Mermaid in the Jewelry Box. I plan to get some matching accessories for this print, and I have just commissioned some jewelry to go with it too in lavender and blue. I have two of the bat clips, and they are perfectly creepy cute, and I purchased these at a swap meet.
Twinkle Journey Replica Skirt & Headbow + Dream-v blouse + Secret Shop tea parties
I picked the skirt up at my first swap meet from another girl in the Sydney comm. It was right when I started lolita so I had no idea about replicas or how popular this print it, but love it all the same. I recently got the headbow second hand too. I wear this skirt a lot, and my whole work place is in love with the print. NB: I usually wear black shoes with this, but they didn't show up very well in the picture, so I chose to go with the lavender tea parties instead.
Emily Temple Cute Rabbit Umbrella OP + handmade lace wrist cuffs + offbrand hat + Angelic Pretty OTKs + Secret Shop tea parties + my Little Twin Stars mini8
I wore this beautiful ETC OP to the high tea with Misako Aoki. I wanted to do a fresh summery co-ord, and I thought the grey colour of the OP was different. It ended up being a lot harder to work with the grey than I first thought, but I certainly loved the challenge! The hat I have had for a few years now, and I updated it with a trim to match the lace wrist cuffs I made.
Bodyline Carousel Skirt + Innocent World blouse + Angelic Pretty OTKs + Secret Shop tea parties + accessories
This skirt was the first Lolita purchase I have ever made, and I never want to part with it. Not only is it sentimental for me, but the print is also really cute. I usually find Bodyline's vertical lines on their prints too busy, but this one isn't too harsh on the eye. NB: I usually wear this with a In the Starlight black long sleave blouse, but my sticky lint roller (a must if you own a cat) was gone missing. I will rephoto it at a later date.
Bodyline Playing Cards OP + offbrand shoes
I don't feel finished with this co-ordinate yet, so I suppose it is a work in progress shot. I would love to make a red half-bonnet to go with this, and have mini playing cards decorating a corner. I wore this dress for a themed photoshoot event for the Australian comm. My partner and I did an Alice in Wonderland style shoot, and I was the Red Queen.
Fanplusfriend Twilight Fairies JSK & Headbow + Dream-v blouse + offbrand shoes
My best friend purchased this for me as a birthday present. The fit is a little awkward (so it was hard to get it to sit on the dress form), but the illustration that is printed onto the dress is so cute and pretty! I absolutely adore fae lore. What you can't see is the bustle at the back.
Infanta Gold Theme Park Salopette & Headbow + Dream-v blouse + Secret Shop tea parties + offbrand socks
This is my only salopette, and I think I love them! Sadly it is in need of some repair. A few of the buttons fell off or broke very quickly and I have just got 14 new buttons for the entire piece. The headbow I got separately on the EGL comm, and I was so happy to find the matching accessory for it. The print kind of reminds me of Christmas and department store toy windows.
Infanta Snow White JSK & Headbow + Dream-v blouse + Secret Shop tea parties
One of my cats Yumi has come to say hello and to see what I was up to! This JSK was ordered in my first group order with the Sydney comm girls. When I got it, the shoulder straps were absolutely tiny, so the dress has been altered. If you can notice, the front bow has been shortened, as it has been used to lengthen the shoulder straps by my seamstress. If you didn't know already, I am a sucker for beautiful illustrations, and this one again, I just love. And if you were wondering: Yumi is a Blue Point Birman.
Snail Mail Awaits!
I can't wait for my new items to arrive! They should arrive soon, and the Lief x Cloud Chamber Basilica at Night ruffle neck OP I have ordered in the Blanc colourway. I also have an AP bangle and a Chocomint hair clip on the way. Over the year I hope to get more socks and accessories to add to my wardrobe.
Thank you for looking at my first wardrobe post.
