Hi everyone, I hope January has been treating you well! I've noticed the end of the month inching closer, and although I was planning on waiting a bit more and organizing some more, I suppose there's not much time left. So, here is my closet post! I've been wearing lolita for quite a long time now (more than 6 years), and most of these things I collected over that span of time. I was also unable to photograph some of my OPs/jsks, most of my boleros and cardigans, my blouses and socks, my shoes, and most of my jewelry/wristwear because my wardrobe is now split between three places (university and my family home in the United States, and now, France). But the pieces that I did manage to photograph are the ones that I do wear most frequently, so I guess that's for the better! I'd describe my style as kind of everywhere, but with a tendency towards somewhat oldschool things.
And without much further ado, here are the things I managed to photograph! Apologies ahead of time for the variable lighting and photo quality.
Angelic Pretty, 2008: Mermaid Symphony OP in black (this has always been one of my dream dresses, and I was overjoyed when I acquired it last year!)
Metamorphose, 2009: Romantic Train Shirring Pinafore jsk in pink
Metamorphose, 2011: Luckypack Floral Shirring jsk in ivory

Metamorphose, 2010: Old Emblem skirt in black
Metamorphose, 2007: Apple Print skirt in black (I love wearing this piece to school, haha).

Btssb, 2012: Strawberry Tart jsk in pink (I recently traded this!)
Btssb, 2006: Shirring Princess jsk in pink
Btssb, 2013: Floral Print Classical jsk in sax (much darker than their usual sax, as you can probably tell).
Btssb, 2012: Dreamy Pony Honey Babydoll jsk in black (I've had some very important life moments happen in this jsk, so even though my friend and I laugh about how neon the ponies on the dress look in real life, I love it to bits!).
Btssb, 2006: Sweet Check OP in black
Btssb, 2008: Strawberry Letters Shirring Princess jsk in black (I adore the bustle so much that I just had to get this print in another colorway!)
Btssb, 2008: Strawberry Letters Shirring Princess jsk in pink
Btssb, 2004: Alice and Bambi OP in pink
Btssb, year unknown: Lillie Lane jsk in pink (it's hard to tell, but the fabric has little textured stripes! Very lovely).
Btssb, year unknown: Babydoll jsk in pink (I had a version of this with lace that I liked better, but I stupidly sold it! Sigh).
Btssb, year unknown: Rose Candle Flocky Mini-Sleeve OP (I love the little bits of glitter on this dress!)
Btssb, 2013: Angel Chiffon jsk in pink (this is a remake of a print from 2007 that I very much loved, so I was happy to get my hands on this dress. The jsk's skirt portion can be pulled up into a bustle as well, which is incredible!)
Btssb, 2006: She is Sleeping Shirring jsk in sax (one of my dream dresses! I'd love to get my hands on all of the colorways of this).
Btssb, 2008: Alice Chess Babydoll jsk in pink (re-release, I think).
Btssb, 2002: Alice Chess Babydoll jsk in black (I've been debating whether or not this one is a re-release too, but I'm not sure since I got it secondhand).
Btssb, 2007: Angel's Relief/Angel's Window Appliqué jsk in ivory (this series is hands down my favorite from Btssb along with She is Sleeping.)
Btssb, 2007: Angel's Relief/Angel's Window Appliqué jsk in navy (yes, I have no self-restraint).
Btssb, 2007: Angel's Relief/Angel's Window Appliqué jsk in black (and the lack of self-restraint continues....).
Btssb, 2009: Secret Cake Factory Shirring jsk in black (I laugh every time I wear this dress, because the embroidered sentence is just great).
AATP, 2014: Electric Circus in the Moonlit Night JSK II (this is also piece with very special significance to me, even if it is hard for me to coord!)
AATP, 2012: Cock Robin jsk in Wine (sorry for the different bedsheets, but I received this dress here in France!)
AATP, 2005: This is My Blood Balloon jsk in ivory (one of my holy grail pieces! I would like it in black as well, one day).
Bodyline, year unknown: Antique Clocks jsk in grey
Bodyline, year unknown: Frame print jsk in red (this dress doesn't photograph well, but it's a much deeper red in real life).
Bodyline, year unknown: Alice Cards skirt in black
Moi-Meme-Moitie, 2009: Lace Velour OP in blackxivory (this was actually a gift from a friend!).
Putumayo, year unknown: Cardsuit print jsk
Carina e Arlequin (now defunct sub-brand of Atelier Pierrot), year unknown: polkadot shirring jsk
Handmade for me by a friend, 2010: Toile print skirt
Unfortunately most of my boleros/cardigans are packed and stored away in various places, and I don't have older pictures of them. I photographed the four I have with me, though!
I have a weakness for hair accessories, so I ended up with a ton of them just sitting around. I have photographed only the ones I like best.
The way I store a portion of them (sorry for th shadow, and the mess around it! I was moving, haha):

Happy 2015, everyone!
