Ziggysunshine's 2017 Wardrobe Post

Hey everyone! My name is Stephanie, and this is my third wardrobe post despite having been in the fashion for many years longer. You can see my old (and somewhat slapdash!) wardrobe posts for 2015 here and for 2016 here. In the last year I've moved countries (Again!! When will it stop???), started on my MA, and gotten myself ready for the years to come. I'm happy to be sharing what I can of my wardrobe! I really love old school pieces of all substyles, so that is mostly what you will find here. I prefer JSKs/OPs to skirts, and wear lolita every day, so I tend to have more casual than super OTT pieces. I also have a bad habit of collecting certain series, so you'll notice that I have a lot of the same dresses in different colorways. Baby is still my favorite brand, after all of these years, though I have to say Meta has been creeping up on me.

I've organized my post this year merely according to dress release year, which has been something of a doozy...lol. Dresses marked with a * were newly acquired in this last year! I've also chosen to focus only on main pieces this year (with the exception of the oldest thing in my closet, which I thought would be fun to show), as I had to leave a lot of my smaller things/shoes/etc. back in America. I've also reused photos from last year for the pieces I kept- sorry about that. With that said, let's begin!

The oldest thing I have in my wardrobe is actually a purse by Meta, from the year 2000....here it is!


(I bought it off auctions this year and it came to me in pretty much perfect condition, so I never suspected it was actually so old! The lolibrary link, for giggles: http://lolibrary.org/apparel/pochette-leather).
That said, let's move on to dresses!

Alice and the Pirates: This is My Blood Balloon JSK in Ivory
(I love the asymmetry of this dress! The straps are different (one side is a thick strap while the other side is made up of two thin ones), and I like that the ruffle runs down just one side of the dress.)


Baby, the Stars Shine Bright: Alice Cookie Onepiece in Sax and Black

IMG_4285.jpgIMG_4285.jpg
Metamorphose: Apple Print JSK in Black and White
(I have a really soft spot for this series, even if I think the corduroy is somewhat inconvenient. The little worms in the apples are so cute! ;A;)

IMG_4285.jpg

(Yes, really, this thing is from 2007! I didn't realize how old it was until I made my wardrobe post last year.)

(One of the few skirts I still own, but I do love the print.)

2008

IMG_4499.jpg

(I love the scallops and the lovey dovey poodles on this! The dress is also incredibly flattering.)

IMG_4285.jpg
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright: Secret Cake Factory Shirring JSK in Black
(I bought this from a girl who modified it by removing the white lace that was originally on the bodice. I think I like it better this way!)

IMG_4285.jpg
Angelic Pretty: Memorial Cake Halterneck JSK in Black
(one of the few AP pieces I've held on to. I love the dot tulle lace, the pearls, and the intricacy of the print! The pockets are also an added bonus. : P)

IMG_4285.jpg
Metamorphose: Candy Star Rabbit Shirring JSK in Black/Navy

IMG_4285.jpg
Metamorphose: Romantic Train High Waist JSK in Pink

(I love that you can pull the top layer of the skirt up into a bustle! Too cool.)

IMG_4285.jpg
Angelic Pretty: Magical Etoile Sheer Collar JSK in Red (Re-Release)

IMG_4285.jpg
Alice and the Pirates: Electric Circus in the Moonlit Night JSK II in Bordeaux
(Another favorite of mine! My university mascot was a bear, so the cute bears on this print remind me of the good ol' days.)

(I really love that this print has bees on it! The mushrooms are great too..lol.)

IMG_4285.jpg
Baby, the Stars Shine Bright: Recipe for an Endless Dream Shirly JSK in Ivory
(This last year I started watching the TV series Hannibal, so this dress now strikes me as a little ironic with how cute and light it is. Hahaha.)

2016

IMG_4285.jpg
Metamorphose: Secret Eden Mini-Length Special Set JSK in Black
(One of my go-to dresses because it is both comfortable and elegant. My friend has the same cut and colorway, so we twin this dress frequently!)
