Join me for a nose in my Innocent World obsessed wardrobe...
I have been into lolita since 2010-it seems crazy for this to be my 7th year! I started posting my wardrobe in 2013. You can have a look at 2016; 2015; 2014 & 2013 if you like.
My lolita lives here...it looks a little fuller on the bottom than last year's pic, since I have a lot more work clothes now. It's been a whole year since I have been able to wear Lolita to work and I sure miss it. I have been slowly selling off quite a bit of my collection in a effort to condense it down but my husband talked some sense in my to keep every dress that I love. I instead managed to keep it about the same size so will hopefully get some more sold off this year, but keep the ones I love the most with a good colour balance overall.
The upcoming year will be a busy one. We hope to move so it's strange to think that next year the pics will be in a new place. I would like to get a few new and some dream items this year. I still dream of a trip to Japan but the house comes first for now. I need to get out to more meets, which should be easier when I move. Here's to 2017! On to the cherished hoard...
