It is a pleasure to be making what is my first wardrobe post on EGL! I initially started lolita in 2007~2008, and I kept at it until 2011, though I wasn't the best. At that point, I decided that maybe it wasn't for me, and I sold off the bulk of my collection, keeping only three dresses, so that I could use the money to travel and be a dirty street punk (kind of fond of those days, kind of miss them, kind of disgusted by them). In early 2014 I decided to try again, after being asked to accompany a friend to a convention, where BTSSB just so happened to be a guest at. Let's just say that I fell super hard back into it, and I couldn't be happier! I hope you enjoy my post! I decided to leave things like pettis, shoes, and tights out, since they aren't usually a main focus of my outfits.
JSKs and OPs:
Moi-Meme-Moitie Cathedral print JSK in white x blk. My first ever dream dress, SO glad I didn't get rid of this one! It will forever be my fondest, even if I do like other dresses a bit more, this one is my most sentimental.
MMM Holy Stained Glass
Innocent World Andrea
IW Gargoyles de Notre Dame
Alice and the Pirates Theatre de l'Erreur/Lost Paradise JSK I. My second dream dress; I am OBSESSED with this series, and I fell head over heels for it due to the snakes. I raise pythons, so when I saw it I knew I had to have it. My only regret is not getting back into lolita sooner, or else I would have reserved one of each cut. I'm trying to build my collection of this print!

My goals for 2015 are to clear a couple things out that I don't wear, get the perfect petti, and acquire my two current and longstanding dream dresses: Meta's Hospitality Doll OP and AATP Theatre de l'Erreur OP in black! In addition, I am excited to see how for I go in collecting snake related pieces and TDLE pieces. Wish me luck!
