Guinea_piglet's first wardrobe post

This is my first ever wardrobe post. I've been interested in lolita for several years, but I only started collecting items actively in 2013.  I don't follow a specific substyle, I just bought whatever I liked and my wardrobe reflects that.  I arranged my clothes  in coordinates, because some of them work only in sets. Outfit rundowns are listed under each photo, but I skipped descriptions for items that were already shown.

This is my favourite print! It's hard to see, but it is sparkly. Also I like this soft dusty pink shade. The socks came in a lucky pack a year later, and I've found a headbow on closetchild. So it is my only brand set.
Skirt, blouse, socks, headbow: Meta
Shoes, bolero: Bodyline
Jewelry and furry headdress: handmade (not by me)

I got this apron and a skirt second hand, and made all the matching accessories myself. Even the shoes were painted with acrilyc to match. The raspberry red color and olschool design inspired me to make it a "Little Red Riding Hood" themed.

I bulit this coordinate around Morrigan NY skirt. I think that the western XIX century literature is underrepresented  in lolita. That's why when I saw this skirt, I had to buy it. It was my first lolita item ever. I put a lot of work in items for this coordinate. The headdress was supposed to have a veil attached, but I couldn't find it.

Skirt: Morrigan New York
Shoes: Black Peace Now
Blouse, capelet, headdress, jewelry, waist cincher: handmade by me

I really liked the buttery yellow shade, that is so rare for lolita.

Items, that I couldn't coord

Offbrand vest and AatP skirt that I plan to use in a steampunk outfit in future


Meta coat (modified to be shorter and fit better)

Trinklets and accessories, mostly offbrand or handmade

So, that's all I have. Some thoughts on my wardrobe:

  1. It's not as cohesive as I'd like it to be. It's like I have some outfits that are 'costumes' (like gothic outfit or Little Red Riding hood inspired outfit) and don't work with anything else in my wardrobe.

  2. I do like Meta :P.

  3. I prefer all-over prints.

  4. I lack basics.

  5. I'm  obviously drawn to reds, browns and beige.

  6. I do like plaid.

My next year wardrobe resolution:

  1. Make more accessories and jewelry.

  2. Sew more clothes (I have lots of ideas!).

  3. Get more basics, like cardigans, blouses, cutsews.

  4. Introduce more color variety into my wardrobe (green, yellow, purple, wine red, navy etc)

  5. Try out new styles, like sailor or military.

  6. And most important, do my best to make my wardrobe more wearable and cohesive (sell/trade items I don't wear much).

  7. Get at least one item with border print.

  8. Save for luckypacks.

  9. Move gradually towards classic style.

Thanks everyone for looking, here's my tumblr I plan to post more outfits, lolita photoshoots and handmade projects there.
