I sold things I didn't need, and stopped buying things I wasn't going to wear.
I also got of identical items in different colors (Loris bags, Antaina shoes, etc)
A rough timeline of how my lolita wardrobe used to be:
2010/2011: All Bodyline. I dropped so much money on Bodyline thinking quantity > quality.
2011/2012: Sold almost all of my Bodyline; Started hoarding Dream of Lolita & Oo Jia Replicas.
2012/2013: Sold almost all of my replicas; have almost no Bodyline. Began hoarding Taobao indie brand.
2013/2014: Sold almost all of my Taobao indie stuff; began buying lots of brand. In particular, Angelic Pretty.
2014/2015: Where I am now. Almost all Angelic Pretty. Almost everything in Pink.
Sticking to one colorway is very helpful as I used to buy the same item (Bodyline, Replicas) in EVERY COLORWAY.
I've also learned to like JSK's. Although I still prefer OP's; with the right blouse, any JSK can look just as nice.

Angelic Pretty - Powder Rose OP (White) ♥ Angelic Pretty - Ice Cream OP (Pink)
Angelic Pretty - Proper Girl OP (Black x Pink) ♥ Infanta - Velveteen Chandelier OP (Black x Pink)
I suffered severe disappointment when BtSSB's Blooming Fairy Doll was so incredibly light.
I figured it to be at least as heavy as AP's Princess in Love. Nonetheless, I still seek it in pink.
CasualWhite Moon Lolita - Chocolate Strawberry JSK (Pink) ♥ Bodyline - Maid Outfit Costume 574 (Pink)
The White Moon they customized longer so it wouldn't be midthigh on me. Bodyline's maid outfit? No hope x.x
Coats/JacketsAngelic Pretty - Whimsical Vanilla Chan (Pink) ♥ Angelic Pretty - Hime Princess Coat (Pink)
Dear Celine - AP Replica Dolly Short Coat (Pink) ♥ Dear Celine - Bunny Capelet Coat (Pink)
Although I don't wear the bunny coat with lolita, I wear it with "regular" clothes; it's so versatile ^^
CapeletsAngelic Pretty - Whimsical Vanilla Chan Capelet (Pink)
When I wear this coat, I never attach the capelet. It just adds too much bulk >.<
BlousesChess Story - BtSSB Replica Princess Chiffon Dress Blouse (Pink) ♥ White Moon Lolita Blouse (White)
AP Dressy Eternal JSK w/ Chess Story Blouse (Pink) ♥ AP Proper Girl JSK w/ Chess Story Blouse (Pink)
I amputated the bows from Chess Story's blouse because the organza ribbon didn't look nice.
I wore that blouse under almost every JSK I had worn this past year, it's just so lovely ♥
I haven't worn that White Moon blouse since I sold my other version of the Choco Strawberry by White Moon.
CutsewsAngelic Pretty Cutsew (Pink) ♥ Offbrand "Cats Are Angels in Disguise" Cutsew (White)
This is where I learned that no blouse or top by AP will ever fit me properly due to my height...
PetticoatsLeg Avenue on Top of 2x VictorianGirlDress (Pink) ♥ 2x VictorianGirlDress Pettis (Pink)
Closest thing I will ever have to a lolita skirt. I love skirts, just not in lolita (I prefer dresses).
Also have VictorianGirlDress petticoats in white & black, but I don't them now that I have 3 pink pettis.
ParasolsAngelic Pretty - Frill Mille-Feuille (Pink) ♥ Baby, The Stars Shine Bright - Petit Ribbon Short Umbrella (Pink)
I was extremely disappointed when I saw that AP's parasol was a dusty pink rather than their usual baby pink.
But I was surprised when BtSSB's parasol turned out baby pink as opposed to their usual dusty pink dresses!
BloomersLiz Lisa Frilly Hearts Bloomers (Pink) ♥ Offbrand Bunny Pocket Bloomers (Pink)
Also in black for those day(s) I can't find the pink ones. The bunny pockets are where I keep my pepperspray.
ShoesAngelic Pretty - Girly Ribbon Shoes (Pink) ♥ DreamV Yumetenbo - Rose Heart Heels (Pink)
Antaina - AP Tea Party Replica (Pink) ♥ Antaina - AP Tea Party Replica (Black)
I only wear the pink Antaina's, and they're getting pretty worn out... But I don't want to scuff my AP ones ;-;
PursesLoris - AP Replica Ladder Heart Pochette (Pink) ♥ Liz Lisa - I don't know the name of this bag (Pink)
Severely lacking in this department, considering I only ever wear the Loris one...
HeadwearIn No Particular Order: Bodyline ♥ Angelic Pretty ♥ La Pafait ♥ Offbrand/Handmade/Indie/Taobao
Angelic Pretty - Half Bonnet (Pink) ♥ Sanrio - Hello Kitty Earmuffs (Pink)
I got the AP bonnet to match Pullip Sfoglia's Princess in Love outfit... Didn't look too nice on me x.x
OtherChess Story - Chocolate Party Apron (Pink) ♥ Angelic Pretty - Fur Muff/Scarf (Pink)
The Chess Story apron is so cute, but I have no idea what to wear it with it, so it's just... hanging in there...
WigsHuman Hair Blended Wig (Dark Brown) ♥ Human Hair Blended Wig (Brown)
Ahh human hair... Wouldn't settle for anything less unless it was for cosplay.
AccessoriesMA*RS ♥ La Pafait ♥ White Moon ♥ Chess Story ♥ Rococo Soul ♥ Offbrand/Handmade/Indie/Taobao
That's my mess of a pinboard. Most goes unworn. I really dislike jewelry (necklaces, rings, bracelets, etc).
PlushiesMeet the family:
Baby, The Stars Shine Bright - Large Usakumya Rucksack (White) ♥ BtSSB - Large Usakumya Rucksack (Pink)
Angelic Pretty - Shy Bear Plush ♥ Angelic Pretty - Lyrical Bunny Plush (Pink)
Usakumya's are actually backpack bags, but I just put them in display (I stuffed their straps inside them o.o)
Not Photoed:Skirts (because I don't own or want any).
Hosiery (I just wear plain white lace or knit tights under every coord).
Novelties (I have a fair amount of GLB's and Pullip Dolls). I also hoard pretty shopping bags.
My dresses being smooshed together onto my garment rack
Goals for 2015:
So I suppose my only goals now are to:
Obtain more of my dream dresses (Link here, seriously outdated though)
Buy more stuff... In moderation... And only things I will actually wear.
In particular: More purses, more shoes, and some Angelic Pretty lace gloves!
