Three Quarters of a Lolita Fashion Wardrobe

This is the entirety of my lolita fashion wardrobe. It fits snugly into one small wardrobe.

At the end of my time in Japan in 2015 I realised that I would have to leave a large portion of my Lolita wardrobe in Japan. In fact, apart from the cardigans and blouses, I left everything that I'd taken to and bought in Japan behind in the care of my second family. So although I was tempted to place my wardrobe pictures up on EGL on LiveJournal this year, I decided to wait another year before putting my wardrobe on the board. 

I did take a few shots of the different colours in my wardrobe, my accessories and miscellaneous items and did some experimenting with coordinates, which I will share with you here.

As I have mentioned before, I am working towards a wardrobe that can be worn in many different ways and I mostly work with a colour pallet of blue, brown and ivory. 


My well-loved Anna House short sleeve blouse, Prince Conrad blouse from Alice and the Pirates, an off-brand pull-over and the blouse I got from the Baby the Stars Shine Bright 2012 Lucky Pack.

I definitely need more white blouses. This is goal number one of 2016.


Metamorphose - Short-sleeve Ribbon cardigan (off-white), Alice and the Pirates - Mary Ribbon blouse (Ivory), Alice and the Pirates - Etoile blouse (Ivory), Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Sonnet for Juliet Striped Chiffon blouse (Ivory), Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Carolyne Blouse (Beige) 

I just discovered that ivory really isn't my colour (more on that some other post) so I sense a clean-out in the near future, which, on the positive side, will leave me with more money for Japan.


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Snow Crystal Bolero, Metamorphose Temps de Fille - Rose Letter with Collar Pinafore JSK, Angelic Pretty - Happy Garden,  Metamorphose Temps de Fille - Girly Note OP 

Pink, THE colour for sweet lolitas. It may all have to go unfortunately.

A few pink coordinates. I finally found a way to display the clothes a little better.


Angelic Pretty - Stand Collar Chiffon blouse, Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Cardigan with Fur, Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Collection Chocolatier Douce Praline JSK (Sax), Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Hello Dear Bunny's Little Enchanted Room Pattern JSK (Sax) (Happy Pack 2016), Krad Lanrete - Phantom of the Opera JSK, Alice and the Pirates - Mystic Chiffon OP. 

All of my blue babies can stay. This will become my main wardrobe colour from now on.

A few blue coordinates. I really like the first coordinate with the Mystic Chiffon OP. 


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Kuma Kumya's Sweet Chocolate High Waist JSK (Bitter Chocolate x Mint), Angelic Pretty - Wonder Party Skirt

I love the Kumya Kumya JSK. It's definitely one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. 

I can't tell you how happy I am with the kuma kumya socks!


Unknown vest from Alice and the Pirates, Magical Cosmetics (L372) from Body Line, unknown pants from Alice and the Pirates

I'm not wearing any of these pieces. Although I was confident about a fabulous foray into ouji-kei last year it has become apparent that ouji-kei does not want us to be friends. Fine, I can take a hint.


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Stripe Patissier Blouse

This is a blouse I was really keen on owning but maybe it's time may be over soon than expected. 

Hair Accessories

Innocent World - Striped Ribbon Headbow x 2 (navy and brown), Innocent world Organdy Bow Clip, Angelic Pretty Happy Garden headbow, Baby the stars Shine Bright - Fairy Headdress of Trifolium, Hello Dear Bunny's Little Enchanted Room Pattern Headbow from Baby the Stars Shine Bright (Sax) (Happy pack 2016)

It was the best idea to get the hair accessories from Innocent World. Having an accessory that matches every piece in a wardrobe changed my lolita game. 


Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Esprit de la Belle Epoque Bonnet (Brown)

This brown and pink colour is lovely and I love the print. I can wait to wear it together!

(Centre) Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Scarlet Wrist Cuffs (Ivory) 
(Centre Back L to R) Offbrand - gummy bear ring, Disney - Mickey Mouse Macaron Ring, Angelic Pretty - Balloon Heart Ring (Angelic), Angelic Pretty - Balloon Heart Ring (Pretty), Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Alice's Teacup Ring (Gold), Offbrand - Pearl Bracelet

You can see my journey from sweet lolita fashion to classic right here. 


Innocent World - Ladder Lace Ribbon Bag (Chocolate), Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Heart Bag (White) (Happy Pack 2012), Baby the Stars Shine Bright - Double Ribbons Bag (Pink x White)

Having a matching bag and shoe combination is the best. I recommend it so much to those of you who, like me, have a difficult time coordinating items. 


Baby the Stars Shine Bright Decoration Tape, Doll Classica Book by Midori Fukasawa, Lolita Fashion Book by Misako Aoki, Gothic Lolita Bible Vol. 56

The books by Misako and Midori have great make-up tips and hair tutorials in them! Some day I'll sit down and translate some of the longer passages about Lolita history. Perhaps that's a future blog post. 

I hope you enjoyed taking a look into my wardrobe. I am looking forward to making over my wardrobe this year and I hope you can join me for the journey.
