Sweet-Classic Wardrobe With A Hint Of Otome *Picture Heavy*

 photo IMG_7038_zps87e72db7.png

Welcome to my wardrobe post!

I'm a sweet-classic lolita but I also have a growing interest in otome.
I've been purchasing for 2 ½ years now and I think I've come quite far (but there's still a lot I want to work on.)
I've made a few changes since last year's wardrobe post – I've sold a lot of my sweet items, I've re-ignited my love for Innocent World, but unfortunately my wardrobe is still all over the place. I've been doing some wardrobe clean outs, but I think I need to slow down and do some more this year.

Here's how I organise my wardrobe-

(The wardrobe doors were taken off just for the picture)

Bags are stored on the bottom right, but my pouches and smaller bags are hidden up top. I store my waist ties, wigs, and larger head accessories in the small red boxes.

You may remember my dollhouse from last year! I still have it, but I've been trying to adopt a 'less is more' policy and put fewer items out on display.

 photo IMG_7038_zpscbd68801.png

Dollhouse details: A cake stand filled with rose accessories, and the lovely perfume that my bf bought for me.

Dollhouse details: My home-made ring keeper and a vintage tray holding all my badges and brooches.

Now onto the main event!

~JSKs and OPs~

My classic side comes out in my JSKs and OPs.

I'd love to buy more VM and MM this year, as well as go back to buying more plain pieces.

Alice and the Pirates Poison de lámour Princess JSK

My first dream dress! It's quite pretty irl, but the red and orange tones are very saturated.

Baby the Stars Shine Bright Claudia, the Fairy Tale Princess

Claudia is a truly stunning piece that I never thought I'd own.

Innocent World Classical Flocky

This JSK has a beautiful velvet bodice and flocked print.

Innocent World Acanthus

Innocent World Bertille Rose

This was a major wishlist dress for me and I was lucky enough to get it in an IW Lucky Pack along with my Acanthus pieces.

Victorian Maiden Apron Frill

 photo IMG_7891_zpsb65929bb.png

Millefleurs (name unknown)

I have a soft spot for versatile non-print pieces. This one isn't the best fit on me, so I may have to sell it.

 photo IMG_7906_zpsab2e14d3.png

Victorian Maiden Ribbon Amelia

I just recieved this in the mail but it unfortunately came with a large amount of sun/bleach damage ;___;

It's actually my fav ETC print (hence why I own 2 versions.)

Shirley Temple Cute Poodle

This was my first ETC/Shirley Temple dress. I've quite cute, but the cut of the bodice is terrible.


 photo IMG_7819_zps8fe4e793.png

Angelic Pretty Melty Royal Chocolate, Angelic Pretty Little Bear's Cafe, Emily Temple Cute Donuts


I own a lot of sweet style casual skirts for everyday wear. I seem to buy a lot of Emily Temple Cute ones, but that's mainly because their JSK/OP sack and underbust cuts aren't that flattering on me.

 photo IMG_7773_zps8e9629f9.png

Angelic Pretty Royal Chocolate

In case you can't tell I'm a tad addicted to the RC skirt series. I did own the 3rd release as well, but I sold it because I wasn't a fan of the cut.

Emily Temple Cute Teddy Print, Angelic Pretty Polka Dot Chocolate

 photo IMG_7780_zps0dfd9f4a.png

Angelic Pretty Chocolate Rosette and Honey Cake

Honey Cake is a bit out there for my wardrobe, but I just love the tacky print.

Emily Temple Cute Macarons, Angelic Pretty Petit Patisserie

 photo IMG_7794_zps368e0baa.png

Emily Temple Cute Cutlery and Doughnuts, Angelic Pretty Melty Cream Donut, Emily Temple Cute Donut

Mmmmm, doughnuts. The ETC cutlery is my favourite out of the three, but Melty Cream Donut is so cute and flowy.

Innocent World Antique Book, Angelic Pretty Bookmark

I'm an avid reader, so it's only natural for me to have a few book-themed pieces in my wardrobe

Angelic Pretty Wonder Queen and Wonder Party

Wonder Party was meant to be my first big lolita purchase but I chickened out. I recently won the brown shirring JSK on auction, so I'll be getting rid of my skirt soon.

 photo IMG_7807_zps2a85fc6b.png

Angelic Pretty Fantastic Dolly, Shirley Temple Cute Heart Jacquard

 photo IMG_7809_zps4965a9a1.png

Innocent World Acanthus

The Acanthus series is so beautiful, but it's super tiny (smaller than the listed measurements.) I think that's why it ended up in a lot of Lucky Packs?

~Vests and Bustiers~

 photo IMG_7724_zpsa9472e42.png

Antique Beast, IW

I also have a lovely wine VM  bustier in the mail. I hope to buy more in the future since I think they'll improve my skirt coordinates.

A shot of all my Melissa shoes!

I was bitten by the Melissa bug this year. Ooops.... It doesn't help that there's a store in my city.

Here's how I organise my legwear! My collection has really grown, so I need to find another method for storing them.

I've sold most of my sweet pieces, but I've still hung onto a lot of plastic AP jewelry.

~Other Accessories~

Mainly offbrand, but the brown ocllar is IW and the deer fur tippet is SWIMMER.

That's it for my wardrobe!

I think over the next year I'll aim to let go of some less loved pieces, and try to sort my style out a bit more.

Lastly,  here's a link to my tumblr where you can see my outfits, hauls, and detail shots.
