It's that time of year again! This year I focused on getting detail shots of main pieces and didn't focus as much on stuff like blouses, accessories, etc. I did however take pictures of all my cat accessories.
The rundown for this year:
17 cat dresses
12 cat skirts
13 non-cat dresses
3 non-cat skirts
plus 9 more (not pictured since I'm lazy) which I'm planning to sell. Let's just say I need more closet space. Or less materialistic hobbies x3
Top 5 Brands: Metamorphose (7), Baby/AatP (7), Angelic Pretty (4), Juliette et Justine (4), Innocent World (4).
This means my wardrobe has literally doubled from last year (21 main pieces). Yay full-time job! The wardrobe is also getting more and more taken over by cats, which is great. Last year cats made up 50% of my wardrobe. This year it's nearly 70%... and more to come.
Angelic Pretty - Cat's Tea Party
As some might say, it's the holy grail for cat lady lolitas. Got lucky and snagged it off Mbok shortly after getting my first paycheck! I made a kitty princess scepter to match for Rufflecon.
Angelic Pretty - Vanilla Chan
Last year I had the tiered version of the JSK, but was never happy with the cut. Luckily I just barely manage to fit into the round version :)
Angelic Pretty x Cat Kera set
Ah, the infamous cat set. I missed out on it on Lacemarket the first time but got it the second time! Let's just say, I have this year's halloween outfit planned out already.
Juliette Et Justine - Le Cadre du Chat
The cat lover's classic.
Juliette Et Justine - Chat Tricolore
This JSK makes me this of some weird cross of Easter and Bastille Day. Once I saw the cats in bonnets I knew I had to have it.
Juliette Et Justine - Noble du Chat
This has gotta be my favorite of JetJ's cat prints (so far) -- old paintings with realistic cat faces -- what's not to love? Just look at the kitty with the bird in its mouth. Just look.
Juliette Et Justine - Sucre du Chat
My latest JetJ cat print. Great for casual wear.
Enchantlic Enchantilly - Cat-lery Skirt
Enchantlic Enchantilly - Queen Cat Skirt
Metamorphose - Library Cat
Okay so the real name is Secret Library but I will forever call it Library Cat.
Metamorphose - Card Playing Kitty
Metamorphose - Melody Cat
Metamorphose - Tartan Cat Applique
Metamorphose - Original Cat Skirt
One of Meta's earlier cat prints. I didn't even know it came with a matching cardigan until I happened to see it on YJAuctions one day.
Metamorphose - Bubble Bath
Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Salon de Minette
So many little delicate details on this JSK.
Alice and the Pirates - Clockwork Aristokitty
Innocent World - Classical Cat JSK
I had the skirt version but always wished I had gotten the JSK instead. And one day it popped up on Mbok! It was a hard find because it's somewhat old and not very popular.
Innocent World - Cat skirt
Still looking for the JSK.
Haenuli - Royal Kitten
Haenuli - Whipped Cream Kitty
I love the colors in this print - they really pop.
Emily Temple Cute - Cat Note
plus a cameo from my cat, Shin
Emily Temple Cute - Cat Food Skirt
What? Cat food?
Shirley Temple - Leopard Cub
Just look at the little tail!! I didn't even know of this skirt's existence until I happened to see it at Grand Bazaar Lolita in Tokyo. Even though Shirley Temple is a kid's brand, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they also make bigger sizes! No room for hips though, so I have to pull it over my head to get it on...
Infanta - Creamy Cat
Putumayo - Trump Cat
Putumayo - Cat Window (DOL Replica)
I gave up replicas a long time ago but still couldn't bring myself to get rid of this one because it has sentimental value. Eventually I would like to get the real Cat Window print, though.
Offbrand Stawberry Kitten JSK
Higuchi Yuko Skirt
Okay, not exactly lolita, but this skirt is just too amazing to not include.

I think I have too many tote bags. I need more real bags.
Enchantlic Enchantilly collection
I went kinda overboard and bought a lot of the queen cat novelty items.
Higuchi Yuko collection
Contrary to popular belief I also have a lot of items that are not cat-related!
Lief - Sacred Night
Atelier Sucré - Bonnet
One of the most glorious and exquisite lolita prints in existence. I added the gold lace on the bottom for ILD. See it worn here.
Metamorphose - Velveteen OP
One of my prized possessions :) A real old school piece from 2004, this was a dream dress of mine for several years until it popped up on Mbok last year.
In the Starlight - Velveteen Skirt
I've had this for years and don't wear it too often, but I just can't let it go. The embossed velveteen is just so pretty.
Milky Ange - Sailor OP
My dream sailor OP. The ruffles in the back makes it really special for me since I don't usually see sailor OPs in that style. Plus it is a 100% perfect fit!
Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Dessert OP (2006)
Another great old school OP. I got this for just $30 at a sale in Closet Child.
Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Millefleurs JSK
More great old school finds - $30 from Closet Child.
Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Mon Petite Loulou
So ruffly! I'm actually thinking of selling this soon since it's not quite my style but I still want to wear it one or two more times because it's just so pretty and hard to give up x)
4 o'clock - Golden Godess
One of my more unique pieces since it was made to order by Linda Friesen.
Offbrand Flower OP
Found in a vintage thrift store in NYC.
Innocent World - Original Chocolate JSK
My ultimate chocolate print. After missing it several times on the auctions, I was finally able to get it. I love the tiny gold lettering on the truffles saying "Innocent World - Since 1998".
Innocent World - Halter JSK
Wasn't planning on getting it but found it at Rufflecon and fell in love.
Escailles de Lune - Forest of Pipe Organ
I love pipe organs, plus the name of this print is just great, so I had to get it. It's also the only truly MMM-style piece I own.
Atelier Pierrot - Bustle Skirt
It was always my dream to have a bustle skirt from "the *other* AP"
Alice and the Pirates - Melty Mermaid
My first brand JSK. I keep thinking I'll sell it because it's no longer my style, but then I wear it again and can't give it up.
Angelic Pretty - Dream Sky
Not exactly my style anymore, but this was always a dream dress for me, and it's just so comfy and adorable.
Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Polka Dot Skirt
One of my first brand pieces. It's not exactly my style anymore but it's just so cute so I can't give it up yet.
