Animerei's 2017 wardrobe/storage post


I've been building my currently wardrobe up for about 8 years now.
This is the fourth timeI have done a wardrobe post.  Here is my 2012 post, my 2013 post, my 2014 post, and my 2016 post.  I didn't make a wardrobe post in 2015.

I currently live in a Yup'ik village in bush Alaska, so all my frills are in a storage unit.

I moved from a city of about 200,000 people...


...to a village of about 700 people.  With no roads - those are boardwalks.
The nearest town is 100 miles (160km) by airplane.  The nearest city is 500 miles (805km) by plane.


My frills have been living here for four years:


I'm going start by apologizing for the quality of photos in this post.  I had to bribe my older brother to help me take everything out and photograph it.  Luckily, he agreed to be paid with a McDonald's chicken wrap and a drink.  LOL.   I am in absolutely and utter awe of the wardrobe posts I've seen that have professional-level photos.  I tip my bonnet to you ladies' dedication and time!  This post represents 18 hours of photo taking and editing.  I can't even imagine the amount of time invested in some of these other awesome posts... O_o;



Inside my 10' x 10' x 8' (4.6m x 3m x 2.4m) storage unit
I own four of these nylon-covered wardrobes from IKEA (there is a black one next the blue wardrobe)



They have extra storage at the bottom!  This was very important to me when I was shopping for wardrobes.


As you can see, they are not *quite* tall enough for some of my longer dresses.  But I love the storage space at the bottom, so it is a good trade-off.


The wardrobes are metal frames (easy to assemble!) with a nylon outer layer which velcros in place.
I was honestly surprised at how much weight each can hold! O_o



Since my wardrobe is in storage, about half of the photos will be from previous wardrobe posts, or my old PoupeeGirl account (rei-jelly).  You can also easily tell which ones are new pictures taken with my iPhone because they are awful quality - LOL

NOVELTY ITEMS:

Novelty items are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE thing to collect.  Which would explain why I have THREE giant bins of them...


PILLOWS!  Victorian Maiden, Angelic Pretty, Metamorphose, & Alice and the Pirates


Candles
Angelic Pretty and Moi-Meme-Moitie


Innocent World "Lotta" mirrors.  Can either be table mirrors or hung on the wall.


Cosmetics bags and hand mirrors     (the thing that looks like an AP button is actually a mirror on the back)
Angelic Pretty, Black Peace Now, and Moi-Meme-Moitie


Gotta have some brand cosmetics for those cosmetics bags, right?!   I have three of these MMM lipsticks  (red only, I'm not into the blue or black)


BTSSB fans (they match the yukata sets) and a Moi-Meme-Moitie fan from the 2015 winter happy pack


BTSSB bunka doll and Usakumya hand puppet


Jewelry Boxes.
Peace Now/Black Peace Now, Angelic Pretty faux book, & Angelic Pretty "Luminous Night Festival" box


Moi-Meme-Moitie tissue case, keychain, and phone wrist strap
Angelic Pretty "Chess Chocolate" playing cards and "Chocolate Rosette" nail stickers
Enchantilic Enchantilly ...something.  I think it is either bath salts or a sachet of potpourri for a dresser drawer.  It has no label explaining it, but it smells nice and is clearly granular in nature.


Angelic Pretty x Vlli Vlli  nail stickers
"Daydream Carnival"
"Dream Sky"


Angelic Pretty rose-scented bath salts
BTSSB "Paris Window" washcloth (which for some reason has a strawberry phone charm in the top...?)
Innocent World wash cloths


Alice and the Pirates "Gloria" and "Vampire Requiem" phone cases.  Will fit an iPhone 5/5s or 6SE.  I used one of the Gloria cases for 2 years with it showing minimal wear.
I have several BTSSB cases, too, but I forgot to take a photo.


Paper products!
Angelic Pretty and Imai Kira postcards (not all, just examples).  AP "Assorted Cookie" and BTSSB floral stationary sets.
BTSSB pop up book, BTSSB/AATP washi tape, BTSSB note pads, AP coloring book, MMM sketch pad
MMM day planner pages, IW crown and rabbit letter stationary sets, IW antique pansy journal, AP fancy paper dolls stationary


Innocent World "Lotta" placemats and coasters
[insert joke about needing a lotta these for my kitchen table]


Brands often seem to give out weird food products at their teas.   All Angelic Pretty.


BTSSB and Putumayo bento boxes
BTSSB, Moi-Meme-Moitie, and Putumayo chopsticks and cases/holders


Angelic Pretty "French Cafe" cutlery x3


Angelic Pretty red polka dotted items                (the item on the far-right is a fondue set)


Angelic Pretty pink polka dotted items


Angelic Pretty "Assorted Cookie" plates, bowls, and spoons


Angelic Pretty "Brilliant Night Party" tea cup, saucer, sugar bowl, spoon, creamer.  WHY IS THERE NO TEA POT FOR THIS SET?!?!?!
AP also gave out a highly-suspicious edible sugar ice cream cone.   I should have put this in the "fucking ridiculous food AP has given customers" photo.


Angelic Pretty "Princess Dreamy Carnival" tea set (platter, tea pot, and mug).  Two sets.  One has a broken platter that I haven't repaired, yet.


Baby the Stars Shine Bright "The Most Beautiful Dog in the World and the Most Delicious Strawberry Frappe in the World"  ALSO KNOWN AS "PUP IN A CUP" or "BABY'S LONGEST NAME"
2 sets of identical tea cups.  I turned one set around to show the logo on the back of the cup.  And a mug.


Angelic Pretty.  Various berry-themed items.  Parfait glass, ice cream dish, candy bowls, and plates.


Innocent World tea cup, saucer, and small plate


Baby the Stars Shine Bright tea cups with saucers.

(I'm very frustrated because I'd found a 2nd red polka dot set + matching white set...and they broke during shipping to my deputy service. *cries*)


BTSSB cat plates.  Because...cats.


Angelic Pretty "Brilliant Night Carnival" dinner plate and bowl.  Sadly, the design was applied after glazing and I will probably never eat off of these.  :(


Emily Temple Cute plate and cup set.  So adorable, but in order to get it, you had to spend an obscene amount of money on their point card system.  I'll prob. never find another one.


Miscellaneous Angelic Pretty pieces:
"Sugar Fairy Cake" rice bowl
"Trump" water glasses
"Royal Chocolate" platter
"Miracle Candy" candy jar
ribbon water bottle


AATP plate
BTSSB sundae-themed water glass
BTSSB "Baby's Secret Cake Factory" mini plate
BTSSB 2004 Autumn "Alice and Dinah" plate


EVEN GOTHIC LOLITAS NEED DISHES, OK?!  ^_~
Moi-Meme-Moitie tall glasses (they're either shot glasses or very tall votive holders...not sure which, but I'll gladly drink alcohol out of them!)
Moi-Meme-Moitie water glass
Black Peace Now tea pot
Black Peace Now for Men plate
Moi-Meme-Moitie mini plate
Black Peace Now castle plate
Metamorphose logo plate
(the BPN mirror snuck into this shot...I didn't feel like retaking the pic once I realized how many hand mirrors I had, so it got photographed twice)


Moi-Meme-Moitie wine glasses.    COME DRINK WITH ME.


I have champagne flutes, too!


Angelic Pretty "Cherry Berry Bunny" water glasses and coasters


Metamorphose water glasses and coasters.

My gripe: none of the brands have a consistent size for their glasses.  Some are super tiny (maybe 3-4 fl. oz.) and others are like 8 fl. oz.



Probably my favorite thing I own.  This sheet set took me so many years to find.

My most prize 'non-clothing' item: Moitie sheets and dust ruffle!  *_*




I never thought I'd find these, much less in the correct size!  Now I just wish I had the rest of the set...

I hope you enjoyed your trip through my wardrobe!

If you made it all the way from start to finish, I salute you.  This post, from photography to editing to uploading and posting took about 22 hours worth of work.  I am in SERIOUS F---ING AWE of all you ladies (and gents!) who basically take pro-level photos of your wardrobe.
I honestly have no idea how you do it, since at this point, I want to drink myself into a stupor.  Except I live in a dry village, so I can't.
