Did this a few days ago for the LiveJournal egl community’s January theme, which was Wardrobe Posts!
Sorry about the weird lighting in some of the pictures; it’s been raining almost non-stop for a few days and my home is really dark.
I’m in the midst of a style shift from classic to gothic and I like wearing ETC for casual/otome-kei wear AND the occasional sweet-till-idk-what-i-was-thinking stuff, so the stuff in my wardrobe end up looking rather ‘mixed’. ^^;; I don’t know how to classify what sort of loli I am because of this (I like a bit of everything!), but I think what matters more is that one wears what they like instead of sticking steadfastly to a certain style just because anyway. (of course, there’s nothing wrong if you are completely happy sticking to just one style!)
I’m not really an OP type of person because I find them not very versatile and sleeve width is occasionally an issue for me, so I mostly own JSKs.
The AP JSK is the most expensive thing ever in my wardrobe. I kept convincing myself that I didn’t like it enough to spend an obscene amount of money on it but those damn ponies just kept haunting and wouldn’t leave me alone. I even ended up spending another disgusting amount of money on the matching headbow after that. <___< But I guess I still like it in the end, lol.
The BTSSB JSK is the holy grail of my wardrobe. This Koitsukihime collaboration is just so gorgeous I don’t know where to start! I love it to death and everytime I see a photo of it, I just fall in love all over again. ♥♥♥ I want to own the skirt and the empire-waist OP someday too. :3c
I generally like skirts more than dresses but I’m surprised to find that I actually have fewer skirts than dresses!
This is the part of the wardrobe that I seriously, seriously took AGES to build. =A=;; Maybe I’m just too picky but I really find that it’s just so hard to find blouses that flatter yet match most stuff. orz
Yeah, I have two of the same blouse, lol. The polyester one is too sheer for my liking so I wear it underneath dresses. I wear the cotton(?) one with skirts because it’s stiffer so it gives better shape and more importantly, because it’s more modest XD I don’t wear the MM blouse anymore though… so I might sell it.
You can’t really tell here but the lace on the AP blouse matches the lace on the Sugary Carnival JSK! I didn’t buy it to match the JSK (just really liked the pony lace), so it was a surprise when I realized that it’s exactly the same. ^__^
I can’t express my love enough for Excentrique corsets. *__* They cinch well enough but are actually rather comfortable. The one on the left was a chance!!1 find at Closet Child when I was in Japan. Even though it’s too big for me (size 3), I couldn’t resist. :x
I only took a picture of the strictly lolita stuff because if I were to include the rest, there would be too many to list! Excuse my duck’s cameo here; no better way to show the two headbows!
Clockwise from left: Triple Fortune bonnet (which you can’t see -_-; better picture here), Moitie headbow, AP Ichigo-chan plastic kachusha, MM Rosette headdress (bordeaux), off-brand find, MM Rosette headdress (milky pink), handmade gift from a friend, BTSSB Yura Yura combs, AP Sugary Carnival kachusha
I love MM’s Rosette headdresses. I’m not even kidding when I say I want to own one in every colorway there is. :x
+ BTSSB Frill Parasol in white (not with me and no picture of it!)
I don’t have a lot of loliable shoes now because I just threw out a few pairs that are really worn out. These are the surviving ones (though the Moitie pair is dead too… would it be a sin to discard them? XD;).
Stuff that I’m expecting
And… I forgot to take a picture of socks! Oops. It’s not very interesting, so there’s no loss anyway!
What’s your wardrobe like? Point me to your wardrobe posts if you had made one; I would love to have a peek too! :D
