Hi everyone :)
I've felt in love with wardrobe post few years ago, I always liked watching other lolitas' closets, particularly standing out ones. Some people put so much heart into their posts that I can feel their love to the fashion! I didn't know my style for so long - I was trying to find it, I bought and sold much, until the end of 2013 I've realised that loving Fantasic Dolly since 2010 may be a trace to discover perfect style of mine. Aand here it comes - 1950s. I simply adoore the aesthetic of the decade, and I sank into a culture of the past.
Please enjoy my wardrobe, it's still changing, but I feel I am near my perfect closet.
Angelic Pretty - Dressy Rose (y!auctions)
I've just felt in love with this print. I'd rather prefer JSK in white or black, but the skirt is very practical to me, even though measurements for small Asians don't make me fell comfortable enough.
H&M - fall/winter, Trend line. I recommend this clothing line by H&M! Unfortunatelly, they are sold in just few places, but designs and fabrics stands out. PS. It has pockets~~
BtSSB - Cherry Cherry Fallin' Cherry RIBBONETTA (closet child)
Queen of Holloway - Pinup Cherry JSK
Good not only for casual outfits, but also for well worked-out ones. The saddest part is that the drees is a replacement for my beloved Drained Cherry which I still haven't found. :(
Angelic Pretty - Milky Berry (Closet Child Harajuku)
I didn't know I wanted the print until I saw it! It's tied up straps are slightly inconvenient.
Offbrand skirt from alternative butique (vinted)
Angelic Pretty - Fantasic Dolly (y!auctions)
My biggest dream dress! I remember when Angelic Pretty released this dress in 2010 and I instantly went crazy about it (while I didin't have anything red or retro in my closet). I was dreaming about a replica of this print, I was sure I will never get the real one. I am glad I didn't buy the replica!
Angelic Pretty - Dreamy Girl (mbok)
A next dress I didn't knew I want. My lolita friends convinced me that the print suits me. I bought a whole set for a good price. It's a beautiful JSK, but after looking through my wardrobe I see there's not many matching items. However, it stays with my for now.
Sewn by my grandmother (probably made with a blanket, but it's soo cosy!)
Vintage (online store)
Angelic Pretty - Retro Modern Girl (closet child)
The name of the print is a destiny. I like its simple design and a retro vibe.
By polish brand "By o lala", bought straight in their boutique. It's not a lolita store, not even a retro, but sometimes they sew dresses that fit a petticoat, so it's nice to grab your petti and try a dress on.
Angelic Pretty - Fortissimo
New Look - I want to change it into skirt.
The fabric is horrible, btw,
Sewn by my grandmother, again! She's so talented.
It's my favourite skirt so far. It matches many thing, colours, cuts...
Vintage (online store)
It's probably some kind of a night gown or something, I don't know a decade, unfortunately. I loove the veleveteen top and flocky print on the bottom.
Angelic Pretty - Classical Whip Dot (AP Shizuoka)
Mystery Garden - based on my design (which was AP's hybrid)
Pin up JSK (second hand). It looks too retro/pin-up for lolita fashion but I am sure it may be worn great in a lolita coordinate. The colour is lemon yellow and it's too long to take a good picture of it.
Black skirt, bought in a thrift store and has been reduced by a seamstress.
Black Peace Now - unknown print D:
Body Line - l325
Innocent World - Cat Pattern Torchon
AatP - La Traviata ~the time this flower dies~ JSK I (BtssB Nagano)
AatP - Last Note Faint spring song JSK II
Surface Spell - Eternal Time Goddess Mucha Print JSK
Beautiful dress, I was craving for it, since I lobe Mucha's artwork, buut it's time to take leave of it, it's not my style anymore.
Denim jackets might not seem to match lolita aesthetics, but they work great with retro lolita outfits!

I rather don't wear the shoes shown above, I think it's time to sell them.
Demonia. The most 'gothic' thing in my closet. They `go well with gothic coordinates, but I bearly even wear them. I think I will sell them soon.
Designes based on AP's, made by Jan Piwowarczyk - Polish shoemaker. They are made of leather and survived over three years. I highly recommend his works.
Me and my little helper thank you for watching!
