2020 Wardrobe Post!

We're late! But we took the final photo on Januari 31st at 23:56. Just as last year, this post is for two persons, Nikolai (IG: @sorgevinter) who used to be a daily EGL Mana-clone but now is a daily boystyle hobo, and Jenny (@angelicprettystarshine) who is a daily lolita/otome/himekaji/whatever you want to call it. As can be seen Niko's wardrobe shrinks for each year while Jenny's keeps growing. Mainly due to limitations in time and motivation. Not shown: the 10+ brand items (MmM, VM, Baby, Aatp) stuck in alteration limbo, bloomers, pettis, hats, umbrellas/parasols, shoes, an almost complete GLB collection, other lolita publications, a million brand clearfiles, catalogs, cards, posters etc, as well as a million items from Imai Kira, Yoh's Monochrome World and similar. Just assume there are more of everything.

AP, worn by Jenny around the house or as thick bloomers when temperature drops to -15 C.


Atelier Boz, I can't wear it with the collar up as shown though since Boz from my experience never ever uses interfacing in any of their products, kinda like Bodyline but for an extra zero on the price tag.


Moi-même-Moitié, best coat but these buttons are the worst.

Sheglit shown above an antique coat with replaces buttons, at the latest made during the 1910s, still a lot of wear in it left.
