Another Closet Post. There are many closets, but this one is mine.

front



It's time for another Closet Post!  This is my third one, here's a link to 2013 and 2012.
The theme to may wardrobe is "whatever I like," which is a mix of sweet & classic.
Colors are chocolate, mint, blue, sax, and jewel tones.
Print themes include (but not limited to) chocolate, mermaids, and bunnies.
I don't think my closet has changed a lot from last year, except that now I have more items I love and less filler.

peak!
I forcibly took over the hallway closet.  As you can see, it's packed a little tight.
My two dream dresses are currently hanging inside out on the back of the door.
I also have a kimono stored in here, you can see the yellow obi on my blue storage.

Dream
My two dream dresses!  As in, my "if there was a fire, I would rescue these two."

A&tP Midsummer Night's Dream: I absolutely fell in love with this dress when I started lolita because of the cut and the print.
I'm a Shakespeare nerd (except for his history plays) and I like that it's not a literal interpretation (just a thought, what if the donkey in the Romeo & Juliet print is really Bottom?)  I'm so happy to finally own this beautiful piece.  TuT  I bought the bonnet before I owned the jsk, which I forgot to take a picture of.
Angelic Pretty Royal Chocolate: I had wanted Royal Chocolate in white,but it sold out on AP SF's site, so I bought the chocolate brown instead.  I'm happy with the brown because it goes with more items in my wardrobe.  I adore the color and the cut!

I wear these a bit more otome in style, my only one pieces.

ETC Chocolate and Bears: Yay, finally got this print!  I wanted the sax colourway, but could only find it in grey.  But I wouldn't buy the sax version because the grey makes it look a little bit more mature- as mature as you can get on a print with stuffed animals.  I wear this with a belt to cinch it.
ST Mermaid:  I love the colors!

Meta
Meta Love

Meta Fruit Punch Set: This includes the minihat, wristcuffs, and bag!  These are all the extra bows that I don't wear on the dress (not pictured are the extra straps).  Oh Meta...
Meta Candy Star Rabbit: I love this color!  I thought about selling this because I don't think the baby-doll waist suits me, but changed my mind.  Pictured below is the matching necklace I made.
Meta Popping Balloon: This jsk includes so many motifs!  Whipped cream, macarons, sundaes with cherries and strawberries, chocolate crowns, biscuits, and candy!  I coordinate this with a vintage broach I bought in Thailand from a street vendor and a necklace I bought from a street fair in Hawaii.

chocolate
BtSSB Chocolate Fairytale Fascinate:  Such a cute print, there's Hansel & Gretel, and a shopgirl at Baby pointed out that there's a witch lurking in the window!  I would prefer the other version, maybe someday.
BtssB Ekaterina: My first large purchase from Baby!  I love the old school feel to this, the simplicity of the cut, and the different types of lace.  It's super flattering.
IW
Casual Innocent World
IW Chocolat Classic: Chocolate and Mint: It  disappoints me that the top shirring on this isn't properly aligned.  I changed the three brown bows for buttons to tone it down.
IW Luna Stripe short halter: One of my favorite casual pieces, I wear it with a different belt that it came with.  The back is great.
diff
h.Naoto: The print is acutally embroidered.  Another beautiful piece I hardly wear, partly because it's a little lowcut for lolita.  I'm keeping because it's my only h.Naoto jsk I own and it's so pretty!
IW classical chairs: This dress has re-entered my wardrobe.  I had one when I started lolita, but the bust was too large so I traded it.  When I saw this for sale again, I rebought it because so pretty, I still need to take it in a bit.  I just love antiques.
Skirts!
3 IW
IW Chelsea, IW Rabbit Letters, IW Dot Jaquard

blu
AP Merry Making Party, AP Chocolate Rosette

choco
Meta Lucky Pack skirt, pretty sure it's Teddy Bear Patisserie LP version
BtSSB something... (This is the point I have to go to bed so if I don't know the name I'm just going to skip it- or make it up)

brown
AP Tokimeki Girl, IW brown skirt that can't be properly ironed.

fun
AP Magical Etoile (broach is currently on a hat), BtSSB Alice at the Fun Faire

mermaids
A&tP Melty Mermaid, ETC Mermaid, AP Aqua Princess

intricate
Lief Sacred Night (another dream print, so long and hard to coordinate though!)
Old School Meta

BL
Bodyline (I want this is every color) & Bodyline

handmade
Both handmade by me.  I was really lucky to have matching lace on hand (or I'm just a lace hoarder).

Ice fruit
Handmade by me

chiffonees
Chiffon blouses, all offbrand.

tight tight tights
My more interesting tights.  The newspaper print is by Aldo, the butterflies Celeste Stein (and no longer in print, sadly)
that I hand colored in with fabric marker, BtSSB Chocolat Hausen (or something ridiculous like that), and VMxMakoto Takahashi.

sox
Blurry picture of my sock drawer.

jewlery


Not included due to time constraints: Blouses, Bags, Boleros, and shoes!  I'll try to be better next year.
Goals: find my style more and have more everyday pieces.  Make more handmade items.

 You would think I would be better at Closet posts by now...
That's all I have time for, I'll try to post more next year!
Thank you for looking!
