••♥♥•• Chelsea's Oldschool x Clusterfuck Wardrobe Post ••♥♥••








I am a useless human being, and I should have done this weeks ago. Also I would like to apologise in advance. 1. For the quality of the images. and 2. Being too lazy to dress my mannequin and taking floor shots instead. In my defense, my mannequin has an 88cm bust, and 66cm waist.. which is considered morbidly obese when it comes to the shirring of oldschool skirts and dresses. Seriously though, I couldn't even get some of them over the bust let alone to hope to do the zipper up at the waist. *sigh*

AND massive apologies to the fact I am indeed a design student who can code HTML and has the ability to make this post amazing, but wont anyway as I do not feel like putting my fist through the screen of my only remaining computer.

Shameless self promotion, follow me on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/boy_brushed_red/

I will reflect on my last years post now~
You can see that here: http://egl.livejournal.com/20020762.html

"Going by this, my goals for 2016 would definitely have to be:
1. Stop buying everything you see.
2. Buy more blouses so you can actually wear most of your wardrobe.
3. Wear lolita more so the majority of your wardrobe is not "New With Tags."
4. Ignore everything above and buy everything with ducks on it."

Well.. I can tell you one thing.. I did buy everything with ducks and managed to find my dream print in every colourway (not all my preferred cuts though) and I did visit the Metamorphose temps de Fille store in Japan where I bought another duck print! AND IT WAS ON SALE! I did also buy more blouses. However, I continued to buy everything I saw and probably made an estimated loss of around $1500 in shipping costs alone in the year of 2016.

I did sell a lot of my treasured pieces in 2016 as I couldn't coord them, and couldn't stand leaving them in the wardrobe getting no love, attention or the wear that they deserved. I hope the lolitas they went to use them more than I ever did.

Anyways. On to the wardrobe!!
I will theme it slightly so it looks like I am not a lay incoherent messy shit (I really am) with a wardrobe that is pure chaos and has no theme or style to it what so ever.

AND THUS CONCLUDES MY POST! So sorry its so very incoherent. I know I should have been preparing Decemember, but I got swamped with Christmas work and never got around to it. At least its something I can look back and laugh at for 2018's Wardrobe Post month!
A few things were left out of this post as they didnt photograph well, or they were on the mannequin I couldn't be bothered undressing haha. Also, apologies for lack of shoes, bags and accessories.. that is a bit out of my lazy reach at this time!

My goals for this year -

1. STOP BUYING SHIT COS ITS CHEAP.
2. THEME YOUR DAMN WARDROBE.
3. WEAR LOLITA TO UNI.
4. STOP SPENDING 5 BRAND NEW BRAND DRESSES WORTH OF MONEY ON SHIPPING ALONE!!!!!!!!111111111
