Chocolate Maiden's 2016 Wardrobe


This is my third wardrobe post, my other wardrobe posts can be viewed here: 2014 2015

2015 was the year of wishes and dreams! Technically my wardrobe did not grow, at least when it comes to main pieces. In fact I have less main pieces now than I did last year at this time. The reason being... I spent 2 months in Japan with friends! Because of this dream come true I ended up selling off some of my main pieces. As you can imagine I have no regrets.

Dresses


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Karami Triple Tiered JSK
This piece I honestly end up spending more time wearing in non lolita outfits. The texture of the fabric and lace is just so beautiful, and it's incredibly comfortable.


Metamorphose Temps de Fille - Pintuck Tiered Pinafore JSK
One of my dream pieces! This dress has an incredibly full skirt, I've yet to truly fill it out with a petticoat. It's also quite terrible to iron.


Angelic Pretty - Day Dream Carnival Tiered JSK
One of those dream pieces I managed to acquire. Incredibly comfortable and I find myself wanting to coord it in more casual ways - removing the organza overlay makes this dress surprisingly toned down when pairing it with a bolero!


Metamorphose Temps de Fille - Rose Stripe Shirring Pinafore JSK
A beautiful and comfortable piece, the only problem with it is I have so many ways to coord it I end up feeling like I wear it too much!


Angelic Pretty - Dramatic Rose JSK
I loved this piece when it was released, and was incredibly happy that it was so unpopular since I managed to snag it on sale! This is definitely one of my favorites - the longer length bodice is much more flattering on me than the high waist cuts they are fond of releasing, and I can coord it hime or more casual with a straw hat and bag!


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Princess Cornelia's Ribbon Ribbon JSK
Baby, at least in my opinion, is the queen of non print pieces. This piece takes my breath away, and is one of their few dresses (that I have) with adjustable shoulder straps!


Angelic Pretty - Royal Unicorn Gobelins JSK
The princess cut of this dress is very flattering, and the fabric is to die for.


Angelic Pretty - Musee du Chocolat JSK
Both very comfortable and one of my top dream dresses! The muted pink color is a favorite in my wardrobe.


Angelic Pretty - Chess Chocolate Bustier JSK


Angelic Pretty - Cameo Window Tiered JSK
This dress my go to dress when I am feeling less than perfect and have reason to go out in lolita.


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Marble Sugar Drop JSK
I've had this dress ever since my first year in lolita, and I still love it dearly. I finally managed to pick up a lace headdress to match this year!


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Early Summer Chocolate Strawberry Parfait
First burando, and still a favorite!


Angelic Pretty - Chocolate Rosette JSK
My holy grail, I finally managed to get my hands on it! I had lusted after this dress for so incredibly long that when Angelic Pretty rereleased it last year I was incredibly frustrated as I was unemployed and completely broke. Fortunately, I am blessed with a very dear friend who helped make my dream come true!

Antaina and Bodyline

I hope in 2016 to continue increasing the proportion of brand to offbrand/Taobao, maybe even investing in some brand shoes. I really do hope to own an all brand wardrobe one day. I'm also am interested in adding some new colors to my wardrobe (thinking about navy) and more META! Some of my favorite 2015 releases came from them.

If by chance you are interested in how I piece all these things together into outfits you can always find me on Tumblr!

Thanks for looking!
