Violetnoir's Wardrobe 2016 Edition!

This is my 6th wardrobe post

Here are my posts from previous years

I almost didn't post this year because its so much effort to create a wardobe post but when I realised how much my wardrobe had changed I was quite shocked, I never realised I'd sold and bought so much although the overall feel is much the same.
 I thought I'd post again as it gives me a good overview of my wardrobe.
This year I just recycled my old post and added in the new things I'd bought in 2015.

I would say my style is classic and otome but I like gothic lolita too.

Last year my goal was to creat a wardrobe that contains wearable pieces with a few fancier ones for special events, I think I have acheived what I wanted and I'm quite happy with my wardrobe.
Goals for 2016: downsize a little, I just don't get chance to wear lolita often sadly and I have too many unworn or underworn items
I'd like to find a couple of things I used to have that I miss such as AATP pirate Alice or castle of nightmare and Btssb Trianon OP.
My wishlist is quite small, its mostly Otome dresses and old JetJ, I'd like to aquire a few of them this year if I can find them.
