Welcome to my 2015 wardrobe post!
I wear mostly sweet and some classic as well.
During 2014, I ended up buying a LOT of new things. However at the end of the year we decided to get a house. So that meant it was time to sell off most of my stuff so we could afford a good down payment, furniture, repairs all that lovely stuff. Before I started selling I had about 30 main pieces. I ended up keeping my favorite pieces and more versatile items. I was building up the classic part of my wardrobe. Unfortunately, I ended up parting with most of the classic pieces, because as a rule of thumb I decided if I needed to buy more things to wear them properly, I had to let them go (and I really need more classic boleros and blouses). I'd like to build the classic side up again during this year, but I will probably try different brands.
So for that reason, you'll see some holes in my wardrobe, items that don't really go with what I have for main pieces. I'm still figuring out what I want to sell based on items I want to buy. I just ended up including them anyway.
Also my post isn't as nice as I was hoping it was going to be because, well, moving! I have a room specifically for lolita and crafting. I also use it for my office space. It's much nicer compared to a cramped shared closet!

I was hoping I could include a room tour, but unfortuantely my room isn't quite ready yet. Next time though!
Here are a few pictures of things I can share!
This is the side for the main pieces. I also have bags down here.
Tops and Blouses
These are actually in the closet because there's no room in the wardrobe for them.
My closet has two sides with drawers and adjustable shelves,
but the other side is going to be dedicated to cosplay stuff.
The Kompliment hook thing from Ikea is great for storing headbows and socks where you can see them!
Here's how I store and display my accessories
That's it! Thank you for viewing!
