Hello, thanks for taking a look at my first official wardrobe post! I finished mine too late last year even though my wardrobe was fairly small, and I was too embarrassed to post it after all (I hid it in my experimental blog instead). This time around I've improved vastly by getting it done at the very end of the month, so I’m glad I finally get to be part of the tradition!
This is my second or third year in lolita—I bought my first pieces in 2013 but wasn’t really active until 2016. I wear mainly classic, but I mostly go for somber colors and an antique feel. The result: a lot of dark solids and a growing amount of VM and Excentrique (both of which I will continue to love beyond the grave). To be honest, I’ve been feeling dissatisfied with my wardrobe as a whole lately. Last year started off strong but ended up being a pretty dismal buying year, with very few wishlist items showing up. I also missed out on a few things and am now hyperaware of the “gaps” I have without them. Still, it was an important year for getting filler pieces and rounding out my wardrobe more, so hopefully I can keep that up!
Hi! This is my second wardrobe post; my first one was 2017. I was better prepared this time, and I have learned how to take better photos!
I have been interested in lolita since 2001 and finally got the means and motivation to start building a wardrobe in 2013. I primarily wear more mature sweet styles with dark color bases (black, brown, and red especially) but I like to try lots of different things, so there are a wide variety of colors and motifs sprinkled throughout. I am a frequent contributor to Lolibrary (primarily historical detective work on Metamorphose items) so I did the nerdy thing and linked all the entries for the main pieces that had them.
This is my third wardrobe post. Previous ones: 2017, 2016. I've been in fashion since 2014.
What happened to me last year: 1) I gave up on labelling myself as a classic lolita. I still like florals and Innocent World, but I also can't resist cute animal prints, silly hats and bright colours. 2) I am back to buying and wearing dresses after a year of boystyle experiments. There are just too many beautiful dresses out there. 3) I am kind of back to sewing clothing for myself, at least I found a new direction. Let's see how it goes. 4) I discovered a huge and crazy love for green and decided to give it a go.
Sadly I did not have much time to invest in making this post, so I only took pictures of my new stuff and reused the pictures from last year. I edited everything at night so the colours may look wierd. Sorry for that.
My last wardrobe post from 2017 was done during the time I spent abroad in Sweden. Since I only had about one third of my wardrobe with me, it didn't take too long to take pictures of everything. Now that I'm back home and reunited with my entire closet, I despaired at the thought of taking photos of every. single. blouse. Ugh! And all the hair bows! Who really want to see close-ups of the crappy little hairbows I like to pin on my berets? Therefore I only took pictures of my main pieces and included some photos of the lovely loft bed and walk-in closet my boyfriend built while I was in Sweden. He's a good bean. Let's get started! ( Queran's lazy wardrobe post 2018Collapse )
Hello all! This is my first wardrobe post ever. I've been collecting lolita since Fall 2014 and I just can't stick to one substyle or color. It took a while between work and everything, but I was able to get photos of my main pieces and most of my accessories to share ^_^
This is my 4th wardrobe post here, I'm enjoying style since 2012. I tend to sell a lot in order to buy new stuff, so there are some new dresses and some of old are gone. I had almost zero new blouses/accessorizes compare to last year, so this time I decided to shoot only dresses in "see how I matching things" style. Enjoy!
Hi everyone; back for a third (and hopefully better) year of wardrobe posting! My wardrobe's changed a lot this past year and I've ended up wearing the fashion a lot more often than before, plus discovered both ouji fashion and my one true love, BtSSB's Veronica Elisse JSK....I've hunted down 4 colourways so far and well, not stopping anytime soon.
Started a lolita instagram too, so if you want to see any of these worn/coorded (plus more detail photos!), feel free to drop me a peek over at @sageblossom_frill.
If you're curious to compare, last year's post can be found here or 2016's right here!
Venture forward to see how my collection of old school lolita pieces has grown since my post last year. And if you have any information on anything, please do let me know! I like to try and find the names and years for as many of my pieces as possible!
What's more loli and fun than sitting at your desk and hand writing a letter on your best stationery?
Would anyone be interested in having a (national/international penpal?)
If you are, by all means let me know in the comments!
What would you girls(and guys) prefer? A random pairing up? Choose your penpal?
If you guys like the "random" option I can set up a form where you enter your lj username and if you want a national or international friend. Then I'll stick it into the randomizer, post the results and you can get into contact with either via DM to share postal addresses.
Hi everyone! I've been into the fashion since about 2003-2004, which makes a lot of years. I use to joke that when I was young Moitie still had size 3 clothing! I have loved classic lolita since the dawn of time, dabbled in sweet and come back the gothic route. Still, mostly classic.
Anyway, should you want to see anything worn, hop over to my ig: oeei! It's not lolita/frill/kawaii exclusive, so expect puppies and food. Pups are cute tho, right?
Despite extensive searching, I haven't been able to find any resources for plus-size lolitas that aren't several years old, and many of the shops listed no longer exist or no longer offer custom sizing. I also haven't been able to find any recommendations specifically geared towards larger plus-size lolitas - just mentions that there do exist some shirred items that might fit me, maybe? (125cm bust/117cm waist... or rather, I have clothes made to those measurements that fit, but I should really take new ones...)
I'm pretty sure I'm just awful at searching, and I would really appreciate being pointed in the right direction!
(I haven't really interacted with the EGL community in years, so I'm utterly lost as to what LJ comms/Tumblr blogs are active these days. the Internet is big and scary and I don't know what I'm doing, pls hold my hand and help me buy pretty things)
Hello everyone! This year was quite special for me in terms of annual wardrobe posts as it is the first time in a few years that I decided to wear this beautiful fashion again. My wardrobe is not that big, but I am definitely trying to limit myself and only buy pieces that I will deinitely wear - and not only to fancy events.
