I've run into a shortage of tops to go with my gothic and lolita outfits.
The problem mainly stems from the fact that my skirts, jumpers, and such, significantly outweigh my blouses (casual and otherwise).
I don't like this because it forces me to do laundry more than usual (which was usually once every two months or so ... yes, I'm lazy and have a lot of clothes).
I'm looking for some affordable tops (casual or formal, black or white or b&w, long sleeve or short sleeve or both, dahdahdah must have round peter-pan like collar or square neckline with ribbon to cross or a high victorian neckline
) that are easy to wash and maintain (again, I'm quite lazy).
Right now, I wash only my Bodyline things in a machine, but it's supersuper convenient in comparison to hand-washing or dry-cleaners.
All of these aspects stem from the fact that I'd like to have more two-piece outfits to lounge around the house in and do chores (cooking and cleaning) and such without having to worry too much about their value.
This leads me to the questions part of the post:1. Anybody have any SMALL / EXTRA SMALL size tops [that match the description above] they are willing to part with? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Anybody know of any good stores (that ship to the US) that sell gothic and lolita - esque tops that they could recommend me to online?
3. I've been looking at the Bodyline tops offered by Cosmates and need input on a few of them: ( Collapse )
What I'd like to hear about these tops is a "top three" of the ones that seem the best with reasons, explanations, and critiques. Bodyline is wonderful for casual, affordable looks that one can wear for everyday household chores and such without worry. As such, I'd love to expand my wardrobe with blouse essentials I can dirty up and throw in the wash. I just need member help here to decide which blouses should fall under that category so I can make an educated purchase. Thanks in advance!
