That's what stock pictures are for. But really, blouses are usually hidden unless worn with a skirt. You usually don't see the part that you're missing anyway. I do understand with cardigans though, that actually does cover a decent amount that has potential to be seen without. But I can tell a lot more about someone's style through coordinates over just the items they have. I could look through their stock photo wardrobe if I wanted to know that.

I prefer whatever shows details most clearly, and sensible grouping if you have a large wardrobe. I also love seeing other people's nice wardrobe set ups. I hate mixed jewellery photos because most of the time you can't see the details, but equally I don't want to see every cheap ebay necklace you own in loving detail. Personally I think my post this year is going to be a shot of my set up, mannequin coords for my main pieces, detail shots for about 20 of my favourite accessories and jewellery pieces and that will be me done

That implies people can take nice pictures.

Do you wear cardigans with all of your coords? Did you do floordinates or dress form? I can't see how you'd squash the dress, just set it next to the coord.
I just can't find simple (here's the dress) images visually appealing. I like seeing details, but with most posts, people have crappy quality photos so it doesn't matter, I can't see detail anyway.

True, Japanese people do love their flip phone quality.

>> No.9311025

I can't do floordinates, I don't have a nice place to put them on. I can only use my dressform. So if the bag is a shoulderbag it will squash one side of the dress or cover a big part of the dress. Bags with handles are eben more complicated if you don't have a nice place to put them (my dressform is too high to put them on the floor).
Also, I wear cardigans with all of my coords unless it's freaking hot. Even if the cardi is shot-sleeved or a thin shawl-like cardigan. If I left them out I wouldn't show you my style so what's the point of creating a coord I wouldn't wear.

>> No.9311029

Sounds best to put bags on a table/desk etc. near your dress form. But like I said, I don't mind seeing cardigans since I'm not interested in the details unless you have nice quality photos. If you do, then great, I can still see the detail. Generally people with nice cameras do include detail shots anyway. I'm not trying to argue, you can do it however you want. I just don't find just dress type of wardrobe posts interesting or useful. It seems like an easy way for a scammer to steal proof pictures.

>> No.9311034

Do you own a tripod anon? There is this one trick you can do. Take one picture of the coord with the shoulderbag bag hanging to the side but also standing on a chair. And then you take another picture without the bag & w/o chair. Then you open both pictures in photoshop (pic with chair on top of the other) and remove the chair from the top pic.

The trick allows you to have a pretty precise control of the positioning of the bag without the weight of the bag squashing or altering the shape of the dress. The results will look more like the bag is floating onto the dress.

You can utilise the same trick with cardigans. Take a picture with and without cardigan. Layer them onto each other in photoshop. Then remove half of the cardigan (in diagonal direction of course) in photoshop. So you can see the details of the bodice on one half and what it looks like with cardigan on the other half.

Watching this I couldn't help but think 'there's big and then there's hoarding', and wondered if she was much smaller than she looked until she started holding up stuff and saying 'I don't even know if this fits me/ i'm not losing any weight'.

Given the amount of stuff that she has, I don't think that video was the best format for a wardrobe post. It feels really rushed and we don't really get to see anything in great detail. Also the way she pronounces otome is annoying.

If you watch her old haul videos, she would bring in probably fifteen to twenty dresses at a time. Even with a decent job, that's a pretty steep expense for just clothes. If she had saved up for it, then cool. But people with shopping addictions tend to not save a whole lot of money.

Seconded. I've got a clusterfuck of a wardrobe because I buy what I love and what inspires me.

>> No.9311829

How many main pieces does she own in total though? I'm too lazy to go through her video and all the annoying talking in between.

And where do you draw the line between being addicted and just being a highly passionate collector? There are girls with just insanely huge wardrobes that beat jahr's by miles.
Let's just take darkromantica as an example. I've counted roughly 160 main pieces in her wardrobe post, most of it being rare and expensive items. Spending so much on clothes doesn't seem reasonable to me even if you are quite well off. But if you got your expenses covered who the fuck cares about what you are doing with your excess money?

I listened to the whole video and it's from how she talks about it, she didn't even try some of the pieces on. She talks about selling some stuff but is keeping a lot of things she doesn't fit. Obviously she is a collector but collecting dresses that the designer meant to be worn is a bit weird. If that's what you love then wouldn't it make more sense to get into dollfie or something? You get the same aesthetic without hoarding something you can't use. You can display all your rare, pretty doll clothes instead of keeping them in a closet.

You can do whatever you want with your money. But it's obvious this girl has a problem. Buying clothing and not wearing half of it sounds like a shopping addiction , not a passion.

A lot of those ppl wear their stuff so while it is a lot it is wearable. They seem to be daily Lolita's and pretty much only wear Lolita. This bitch >>9311586 seems to not be able to fit into most of her stuff. Half the things she says is that she is keeping x even though it doesn't fit/she doesn't wear it/some collecting reason. Her stuff isn't one style either, it is all over the place, seemingly stuff she owns are there because it is pricey as there is no cohesion. Misty sky for example has tags still, she calls old moitie she owns "vintage" and she probably can't fit into any of it.

>> No.9311845

>moitie haul
That hurt my soul, but it's her money to spend how she wants on stretching seams to infinity and beyond or not. But admitting you have so much stuff you haven't even checked to see if they fit and not wanting to sell makes it sound like hoarding.

Obsixwi is far more of a cutie

>> No.9311856

I know you used Darkromantica as an example cause she has a huge collection but honestly, she is a lifestyle lolita that started lolita a long time ago and she wears it on most days.
The two of them can't really be compared cause Darkromantica at least fits and wears all her pieces.
But yes, she does have a huge wardrobe with loads of rare and expensive pieces.
Personally, I don't care, cause if someone has the money for that, good on them!
Personally, I don't care what people do with their excess money as it's none of my business.
But the girl in the video (Jahr), she can't even wear a large part of her collection and that just makes me sad.
The rumors about her getting into debt for it doesn't sound good either (hope it's not true).
This girl, whether she's in debt or not, sounds like she has a shopping addiction or something.
Why buy pieces just for the sake of collecting them ffs.
But then again, she can do whatever she wants of course, but honestly I find it odd and a waste of money.

Also, why make a video?
Why not a picture post?
I guess taking pictures takes a lot of time, especially when you have a huge wardrobe but still...I tend to skip the video's cause I find it annoying if they are longer than 5 minutes.

Plenty of adults have singles anon, the whole time I was at university I had a narrower-than-standard single and it was nearly impossible to lay out a dress properly on it. You could just about do it, but you had so little room to flare the skirt that the details weren't properly visible, and you couldn't photograph and crop dresses in a way that didn't show the edge of the wall or the bed a bit, which looks messy.

How do people feel about videos that show lots of details? I'm currently working on a video of my rather small wardrobe, but I want to show lots of up close details which would make the video slightly on the long side.

I don't think anyone is challenging her time in the fashion, most of the salt is about having pieces she hasn't even tried on or knows she doesn't fit, while she complains about how she has too much.

If you'd like to show more details through video then I think it would be better if you dedicated 1 piece per video as opposed to a wardrobe video.

This bugs the hell out of me. Lolita fashion is a street fashion. These dresses are meant to be worn. She can do whatever she wants with them, but I do think it undermines the whole purpose of having a large wardrobe in the first place.

Hell, I have a job which makes it hard for me to wear lolita. Despite that, I still find time, even if it's just laying in the house and using it as a motivation to finish up work. Having pieces that you physically cannot wear seems just counter to lolita fashion in general.

I don't mind her collection but I wished that she did a traditional wardrobe post. I enjoyed her older EGL wardrobe posts and think it's a shame she moved on to a different format and did not organize her video in a more coherent way. This anon >>9311421 showed that a wardrobe video can be done in a shorter period of time and create an enjoyable video.
This bashing on jahr reminds me of back when cgl would complain about her and other Lolitas. I found it pointless then and I find it pointless now because does it really matter what others do with their money or their clothes? I may be partial to her because I liked her outfits and her collection. She's always seemed sweet but awkward.

Oldfag out.

>> No.9316874

It's not all that difficult to accumulate so many dresses, most of which she has purchased second hand, over however many years she's been into lolita on a middle class income without going into debt.

I've never had an issue with her wardrobe size and I enjoy her JM collection especially, but I think people can complain about information that someone's made public, pointless or not.

But oldfag or not, anyone complaining about a situation they placed themself in (such as with her complaining about her closet size but not wanting to part with stuff) is a bit offputting.

I don't get the salt regarding her. I love these unusual collector types because they're a lolita museum. Lots of old brand barely touched.

If you don't fit in your dresses, have never worn them and are already thinking of selling them but then "ah no, I'm gonna keep this anyway" it sounds really unhealthy.
The size isn't so much a matter. It would be totally normal for a daily lolita or a collector. But you either really want that piece (as a collector) or wear it. Just keeping it bc 'why not' seems weird.

Not about the wardrobe posts per se, but is anyone else really afraid to introduce new colors into their wardrobe? I get a lot of compliments on my closet, mainly on how cohesive for it is for its largish size. It's like that because I stick to four main colors (two base neutrals and two main colors). At this point I wouldn't even know where to start adding an entirely new color.

This could go for style as well. It's a little intimidating when you've invested so much into one look and lolita is just so matchy.

You have to think about this for yourself. Do you really feel bad because of the backlash she got?

I've been into the fashion for almost 11 years and I have sold approximately as many dresses as I now own, but I feel pretty silly having so much stuff when I don't wear it lately. The hard part about selling is that most of it is hard to find items that I hunted down over the years. I'm currently on welfare though as I'm not able to work at the moment due to health conditions so I have been trying to sell some stuff, but probably not as much as I should. I definitely have a shopping addiction though, as well as manic depression and an anxiety disorder. But I think the fact that I feel too ashamed to make a wardrobe post says a lot.

also... why do people care so much if someone is in debt? Almost everyone is in debt. I don't know why it's okay to be thousands of dollars in the hole for say, a new car, which honestly depreciates in value soooo much more than your typical brand dress, but it's not okay to be in a bit of debt from buying dresses?

People have weird priorities imo. At least once you have your lolita dresses nobody is gonna come take them the fuck away from you even if you can't pay your credit card bill. If you can't make your car payments they will fucking take your car away. If you can't pay your mortgage you lose your fucking house.

Okay but now you're arguing against debt entirely. I'm saying I don't understand why it's okay to be in debt for a car or a house but not some dresses, especially if you can afford you monthly payments.

Also by your logic people should never get car loans or get mortgages. Maybe you're not from the US, but that doesn't work over here unless you're wealthy (well I mean you can usually get a used car for like under 2-3k but it likely is kinda crappy and you'd be better off going to carmax and financing a better car and just using the 2-3k you'd have spent on the shitty car as your down payment). Where are you from? Or are your parents super rich? Cause like even if you're super rich, in the US you really do want to take out loans and pay them off because that raises your credit score. If you have a bad credit score you can't even get certain jobs over here.

Don't feel bad about it. If your dresses make you happy, that's fine. I don't own as much as you but I do own over 100 dresses and haven't worn some of them.

To address what >>9323894 said, I don't see what the issue with Jahr's attitude is but what I am seeing are seagulls being salty because she doesn't fit into cgl's definition of a perfect Lolita.

Maybe because although owning a car is a luxury, it's a luxury that can have big benefits e.g. open up employment in locations not served by public transport, owning a house isn't possible for everyone but if you can afford it it saves you money in the long run and gives you a more secure retirement.

I never said that. I said you shouldn't buy things you can't afford. If you can afford to pay a car loan every month, that's fine. If you can afford a loan for dresses, that's fine however dresses are not expensive enough to warrant a loan. That's why I assume people cannot afford it. It'd be cheaper to save for a dress over getting a loan for a dress.

>> No.9324101

If you try to get a job that checks your credit, and you have no credit, you will pretty much definitely NOT get the job. Many types of job do credit checks.

Also, if you have no credit, it will be very very hard to rent a house or apartment because pretty much all landlords run credit checks. You might find a slumlord who will rent to you but that's about it lol

> A lolita dress is just clothes at the end of the day.
I see your point but also a car is something that 1-depreciates in value and 2-can be taken away from you if you default on payments. Dresses can't be taken away from you and don't depreciate as much as a car. So technically they're kind of like cash stuffed in a mattress

>> No.9324168

If you plan on defaulting on your dress loan, they'll take other items of value like your car. If you literally have nothing of value except your dresses, what are you doing with your life.

Outside of wardrobe posts, does anyone else have their wardrobe in a Facebook album?

Most gulls love a large collection if well utilised, don't let the minority that complain for the sake of it put you off sharing.

I personally like a bot of commentary. But I also like to look at posts and imagine I'd be bros with lolitas with similar taste so take from that what you will. >>9321166 hi friend

I really liked it when she wore lolita and could at least still somewhat fit in her clothes. She always had interesting coords for classic. I actually white knighted her a bit. But I'm rather bemused she stopped wearing lolita but continues to have a massive hoard of clothing she can't essentially wear.

She looks fine in lolita. Why did people complain? Just because she owns a lot?

It honestly troubles me much more that she just collects lolita she does nothing with. I'd like to see her do some coords with the things she hasn't worn yet. She has such a massive closet to work with.

>> No.9328811

She looks cute in the coords she makes in my opinion (which we seem to share), and she's hardly the obese whale some make her out to be.
But most of those pieces she doesn't fit are like extremely small sized, so why buy them in the first place when you know they will never fit you? And if you don't have the intention to lose weight in order to fit them?
She's either hoarding at this point, has a buying addiction or is a hardcore collector, but I don't see why you'd collect things you can't do anything with besides putting it away in your closet?
Other people with like 100+ main pieces did not get shit on btw, just Jahr and her strange video.

>> No.9328862

She used to wear Lolita often and was a frequent poster at Daily Lolita but people on cgl would criticize her for being ugly and fat.

>> No.9329449

I'm trying to understand why people have an issue with this, but I just don't. I watched the entire video, and I know girls with much larger wardrobes whom I would consider to have an addiction way more than this girl. There were some items I felt like she was just collecting, but for the most part it seemed like a lot of what she has actually does fit her aesthetic, even if she doesn't currently fit them. She also mentioned wanting to get several things altered, so I just don't get the problem here. I don't know her financial situation, so I can't speak on that. Also she said she was selling a few pieces so to me it's obvious that she can let go of things (she is even getting rid of the more 'sentimental' pieces as she stated).

Can someone explain why people are so butthurt over this? Do you really care about her 'shopping addiction' or is this just jealousy. I'm honestly confused.

I thought I didn't care about personally making a wardrobe post but now I kind of regret not doing it in the past. I believe this is my third year in Lolita and I would have loved if I had done it my first and second year even with so few items, to see how my wardrobe has evolved and grown.

Honestly I kinda want to make one myself since this last couple years my wardrobe has grown a ton. I'm finally getting gaps filled in (shoes, accessories, etc). Might post to Amino rather than EGL though, just since if I made one this year it probably wouldn't be finished on time for egl.

Between this video and her latest comments on instagram along the lines of 'I don't wear lolita nymore,' she does seem like she's been burned by /cgl/ so much that she doesn't want to do lolita anymore.

I wonder if she's doing this partially out of spite for the cgl community. Like 'CGL destroyed my love of wearing lolita, so I'm just going to keep everything because I know out there some gull is going to be mad that I'm letting her dream dress rot in the closet.'

For the record, I'm just speculating. It's probably way off but from what I've gathered in the thread and what she keeps saying on instagram and in videos, I think it's plausible.

>> No.9334794

You may be partially right but I am speculating that it has mostly to do with her being tired of it. The reason why I don't think it is cgl is because despite being posted here fairly often she continued wearing it. I've noticed that a lot of the older Lolitas have stopped wearing Lolita or only wear it during an event. The way I see it she loves the fashion but doesn't like wearing it anymore.

>> No.9335988

She mentioned in her most recent video that she is a collector. I don't understand the problem people have with that or with her wardrobe.

>Can someone explain why people are so butthurt over this? Do you really care about her 'shopping addiction' or is this just jealousy. I'm honestly confused.

What's hard to understand about people not liking her attitude? This isn't a 'oh salty jealous gulls hate everyone', it is 'people don't like to hear others actively complaining about something they continue to do (collect lolita) but make no use of (I don't know if I even like this).'

Who said that clothing always has to be worn? There are people who collect clothes as a hobby and she has stated she is a collector. That is why I am attributing it to jealousy because what else was I supposed to blame on people's behavior? Why do you think it is "weird" for her to have a Lolita wardrobe when it is a common behavior amongst collectors of fashion?

When did she say that she doesn't like Lolita? Obviously she likes it enough to not sell everything. And if you've been in the fashion long enough, you would know that it is common for Lolitas with large wardrobes to talk about closet cleaning and complain about how difficult it is. I am failing to understand why anyone here is salty over behavior that we have seen before.

I'm done whiteknighting as all I can see is irrational behavior whenever it comes to this girl. I give her kudos for doing whatever she wants despite the hate.

On a more positive note, the queen has posted! http://egl.livejournal.com/20123837.html

Honestly I was a bit peeved about how disorganized the video was. I realize that a quick and dirty vid is easier, but the piles of dresses falling over and getting all jumbled up was annoying. The auto focus on the camera was distracting. Other than that, I have no hard feelings.

>When did she say that she doesn't like Lolita?
Not speaking about it in general, but she mentions that she isn't sure how comfy she feels in it anymore, and several times during her wardrobe video she says she's unsure about items or knows they don't fit. If you watch her motd videos, she admits she hoardes makeup too so anons aren't reaching with their speculation that she's hoarding lolita ( hoarders often stop getting enjoyment from collections but can't let pieces go).

I've been wearing lolita for 9 years and I can complain about storage and what to keep or let go, but not that I don't fit things and need to sell because of the excess but ask people to inform me of new sales in the next breath.

No one is being over salty, her contradictory attitude is what irks people not her wardrobe size. I actually enjoy her chatty vids and don't think anyone 'hates' her.

>> No.9338362

I do think some people hate her. People have called her fat many times, including this thread, when clearly she isn't the fattest Lolita we have ever seen.

I still don't see what your issue is? Why does the comfort of wearing the fashion or fit important when she is a collector? I think we're viewing her in two different ways and we'll have to agree to disagree on this matter. From what I saw in her video she wants to let go of pieces that she no longer likes and wants to add pieces that fit her collection goals which I don't see as contradictory at all.

>> No.9338409

Not the anon you are replying to but I agree that the minority hate her for bullshit like her size but most are just confused by her 'collecting' since most people collect something to enjoy it, and not enjoying several aspects of her collection (such as wearing it comfortably) are strange. She wants to let go of several things but refuses to sell most of those things, do you understand how that contradicts things?

>> No.9338411

I think we'll agree to disagree- I think I just see 'collecting' differently though she is a collector in the purest sense. Do think hate on her weight is ridiculous though.

>> No.9338459

Times like this when there is civilized conversation on cgl does make me happy!

Like >>9338411 said, we have a different way of looking at collecting. I know several people who buy shoes, jewelry and vintage pieces who never wear the pieces they buy. Enjoying by wearing isn't the only way to enjoy clothes. And no I do not think it is contradictory to want to get rid of things but not sell others. Why sell items in your collection you are happy with? Why keep items in your collection that no longer suit your purpose?

>> No.9338484

>Enjoying by wearing isn't the only way to enjoy clothes
I think looking at what the other anon said about different views on 'collecting' and thinking about it in this sense makes me less critical. I think her attitude is weird but it's just an opinion and she is free to enjoy this fashion as she sees fit.

For a 'high sodium' topic, I think it has been an interesting look at how people feel a wardrobe should be 'utilised'

Did you watch the video with the sound off? She is literally talking about things she does want to sell, then changes her mind, then changes her mind again. People in this thread aren't shitting on collectors, they are shitting on addiction.

I also have an album with stock pictures of all my wardrobe items, as do many of my friends. I like it because it helps me keep track of the names and years of my items, I can view my collection from any computer and don't have to sift through my actual wardrobe and boxes of headwear. Also, it helps to know what's in my friend's wardrobe if they want help coording something, or I want to borrow something of theirs or vise versa. I actually like seeing what my friends own in clear stock pictures, we're not all salty poorfags who get jealous every time someone buys something new, anon.

When you make an album, you can choose to share updates or not in the settings. Either way, facebook is inherently self centred since you're supposed to post about your life. If that bothers you, maybe consider deleting your account or calming down.

Because facebook is the easiest. Most people aren't going to sign up to another website just so some bitter people don't have to see what they're adding to their wardrobe album.
