Kirsten's 2016 Lolita Wardrobe!


Hello everyone, welcome to my first EGL wardrobe post! I had a fun time putting this together.


Skirts
no title
no title
All skirts are Angelic Pretty.
Twinkle Carnival, Dolly Cross, and Crystal Dream Carnival.
I love the details in CDC; it was one of my first lolita pieces! I love Twinkle Carnival because it is a less busy version of their other carnival prints. The wearability of Dolly Cross is wonderful - it looks great with pastel goth or creepy cute and doesn't need a large petti to look cute.


One Pieces

Both Angelic Pretty.
Majorca Cutsew and Milky Cross.
I love the chiffon overlays on both!

Angelic Pretty Old School piece c. 2001-2003, Ista Mori's Nameless Poem, and Angelic Pretty's Dolly Cross.

(Accidentally put an OP in the photo, whoops!)
Both Angelic Pretty.
Cinema Doll OP and Shadow Dream Carnival.
Story time: So I managed to snag Shadow Dream Carnival natural waist black JSK on the AP USA release. Mind you, this was not the first time I had bought something from a brand store, however, it was a pretty big release and I had done it on my phone during class. So of course, I was rather impressed that I had gotten it. I had always really wanted a solid black AP JSK and I love everything about this dress. Well, come a few weeks later and AP USA informs me that there is a defect with that cut and color way. (Of course I don't blame AP USA at all. I have had many wonderful purchases with them). Regrettably, I decided to just go with the refund option because I was so set on the black color way. Funny enough, I actually used the refund to purchase Cinema Doll. Fast forward to December and I finally found the right cut and colorway on Yahoo! Japan Auctions! Success. It was a long time coming, but this makes me love SDC even more.

Die Kleine Mizzi Chiffon OP and Baby, The Stars Shine Bright's Rosa Mistica.
The beauty of Rosa Mistica speaks for itself. Longtime favorite.

Both are Baby, The Stars Shine Bright.
Innocent Rose and Key to Heaven ~Holy Church of the Blessed~ Sistina JSK
Key to Heaven I also bought in San Francisco. I Uber-ed straight from the airport to BTSSB, luggage and all. It was also my first experience in a brand dressing room - kind of terrifying kind of exciting. Either way, it really unleashed a love of wine red for me. The attention to detail on both of these dresses is immaculate.

Bags!

Last but not least...two Angelic Pretty Milky Cross parasols!


I decided not to include socks / tights / jewelry simply because I use a fair share of offbrand items to juice up my coordinates and didn't feel the need to include them for now. Well, thanks so much for reading, have a great day!
