Shonnycake's 2016 Lolita wardrobe post!





Hello everyone!

This is my second year in a row posting my Lolita wardrobe. You can see my previous post from last year here: http://egl.livejournal.com/19876713.html

Since last year my style and wardrobe have changed greatly! I spent most of 2015 not wearing Lolita and selling off all my random pieces to focus more on a minimal wardrobe with main pieces that I can make multiple coordinates from by using a small selection of bags and shoes ect :) I love prints with animals or flowers in them as you will be able to see in my photos below.

This is the difference in my wardrobe in the last year :)



I was able to get several of my dream dresses and after going through my wardrobe to take these photos I have a small pile of things to sell to help my wardrobe to continue to head into the right direction.I sold almost all of my Bodyline apart from a few pieces I have sentimental attachment to and apart from shoes I don't plan on buying from them again.

I have spent all of January packing and moving house. Originally I had decided not to make this post but had a change of heart ( on the last day I had to make this post lol) So sorry the photos are a bit rushed. It was a weird lighting day here in Christchurch NZ and I only had my mobile phone to take photos on as my camera is still packed.

This is about 90% of my wardrobe. If you would like to see all my accessories and jewelry etc please see my last years post. I have reused a few of last years photos as I don't have a clue what boxes half my things are packed in.

I hope you enjoy my post! Please don't be all up on cgl and btb hating on me for the crappy photos :3

Status:This is my go to casual dress. It was really cheep from Bodyline and came with loads of loose threads and needed tidying up. Its a thicker fabric so its my winter casual go to dress. Can just be tossed in the wash as there is no risk of print runs and has nothing delicate on it that requires careful hand washing.

Colour:Wine, Brown and Navy
Year:2015
Style:Classed as an OP but its pretty much a Jsk
Link:Not featured on LB.Still available http://bodyline.jp/en/costume839.html
