I've only been into lolita for maybe half a year? So most of my stuff is pretty new. The Heavenly Cross skirt was my first purchase.

Anon, I'm trying to help you find the name of the floral AP OP, but no luck so far.
Could you see if the tag has a product number in the tag? Should look like "142O7-3655" or something.
Also, when did you buy it exactly? If we know when it was on the sales rack we might be able to pin-point the year of the release.

Anon you're a blessing and a saint. The tag is 172004-030127 I bought it maybe a week ago but its been on the rack for at least a month. My best guess is it was an early 2017 release or maybe a late 2016?

Why have skirts become so unpopular recently? And I'm not singling you out anon, it seems like a general trend where I see fewer skirt coords as well as fewer skirts being released by brands. They're very versatile and I often prefer them for fit. There is a price difference from dresses so I guess that's why they're associated with newbies?

Ah fair enough that's pretty reasonable, I just have a weakness for skirts honestly (and being stupidly short, short-torso'd and small, I generally only get jsks if they have corset lacing and a high enough waistline).

And yeah you hit the nail on the head, dirt poor uni student. Only have this much to show for myself since I usually sell an old piece whenever buying a new one, both for space, money and general wardrobe improvement. If you take a look though I've actually finally(!) got more various brand in there than I do Taobao/Bodyline stuff (well and then that one random axes femme + handmade floral skirt tossed in for casual wear but hey who's counting), and considering selling a couple more soon to replace with some nice brand items.

My original goal for this year was to reach 20 main pieces before the end of 2017, but at this point I'm probably going to surpass that. It's not a whole lot compared to some wardrobes, but I'm pretty proud of myself for accumulating 16 main pieces in the span of 7-8 months.

>> No.9586506

It's nothing special to accumulate 20 dresses in a year, it's only a matter of money. The really hard thing is to have a cohesive wardrobe and to collect the dresses/prints youz really want (instead of just the next best dress you see). Also, I think many newbie lolitas concentrate too much on main-pieces. Proper shoes, bags, blouses, headwear and jewelry take a lot more time and a good amount of many as well.

As far as your wardrobe goes, you did quite a good job. You have a nice sweet wardrobe, though I'm questioning th first dress. Thhat collab dress doesn't even look like it would fit a petti.

>> No.9586510

Oh yeah agreed! I just find it impressive for myself, I've seen many other people accumulate main pieces far faster than I have. I've managed to collect a decent amount of shoes, bags, blouses, and accessories, though I do still feel that I'm still lacking some filler pieces so I'm trying to focus on buying more of those things to help diversify my wardrobe further.

As far as the dreamy luna OP goes it fits two small pettis well, but it's definitely better for casual wear.

It's a biased sample, larger wardrobes take more effort to make a collage of so those people are less likely to bother posting. Like another anon said, they're also likely to have posted to EGL and got comments there so there's less incentive to post for comments here.

Beginner, including my only pair of shoes and bag.

why would i do that? my wardrobe is easily recognizable as me and then people would know i'm secretly rude with high standards. seems like a dumb move, fellow gull. but it's around 75 pieces ranging from OTT sweet to toned down sweet to classic with a few highly sought after pieces sprinkled in.

i wrote a blogpost detailing it for you but then i realized you probably don't really care. bigger than mine with reasonable variety, yet still has cohesive capsules within.

But it's all so random, nothing fits, there is no theme, they don't really like their dresses and barely wear them, but still keep them just so they can say they have x number of dresses already. Nevermind fitting staple pieces, if any at all.

Is this anything to be proud of or something others should admire?

The bottom four dresses I'm planning on selling one day when I'm less lazy, almost left them out.

You're starting to sound like you're describing someone specific.

My wardrobe is pretty random but only because I buy prints and cuts I like instead of looking for a fucking theme which isn't required.... My shit matches and I like the way I look in it. I'm sure this goes for other people who have "random" wardrobes.

Even most gulls buy stuff they like instead of trying to adhere to a theme or only buying certain things. And if they do, it'll be because they like the theme or only specific cuts.

For someone only two months in the fashion 8 dresses is pretty huge. Some struggle to have 8 dresses in 2 years.

>You're starting to sound like you're describing someone specific.

I have a few specific persons in mind, yes, but these were just prominent examples. They were people who would have an almost interchangable 'wardrobe' and 'sales' album.
And you already said your shit matches. That's what I'm talking about when I saw a theme. I'm not talking about a 'cat'-themed wardrobe or 'food'-themed, but just barely cohesive. The wardrobes I have in mind would have so many different dresses that don't match each other, the person would have to buy seperate shoes, blouses, socks and bows for every single dress. And most of the time they don't have anything to wear it with.

>> No.9587240

>For someone only two months in the fashion 8 dresses is pretty huge. Some struggle to have 8 dresses in 2 years.
If you're the original anon that said it wasn't special for someone to have 20 dresses, then you just contradicted yourself.

The fact that some struggle to get 8 in a year mean 20 is a pretty big get.

Also themes and matching things aren't the same. Being cohesive doesn't necessarily designate a theme of some kind.

The dresses don't need to match each other.. the blouses, shoes, socks, head wear and accessories do.
Again, as someone with a pretty random wardrobe, my shit still matches. And yeah, that means I have to pretty much buy a full coord every time. But that's just how I like doing things.
Not only that but when I first started building my wardrobe, I would just wait to accumulate more and now even though my dresses don't fit together at all - I can interchange blouses and shoes and socks without it looking terrible because I've collected so much.

Skirts are hard for most ppl to wear. Their max waist is smaller than the jsk/op counterpart, and even with shirring you are better off if you aren't chubby. Flaw of shirring is that it can make your chub more prominent. The other issue is needing a real blouse that fits you. Most ppl I know where blouses that don't fit because they are hidden, but with a skirt you can't do that. Personally I would like more structured tips to pair with skirts.

It's incredibly exhausting to take pics of your own stuff. Try it out one day, if you have 5 dresses it's reasonable but at 50 it's a weekends work.

...have you ever been on EGL? Stock photo wardrobes aren't allowed, wardrobe post season means manually photographing everything you own and maybe just throwing in just a few stock pics for things in the mail. Some people re-use some photos from the previous year if their wardrobe hasn't changed much but most don't.

NTAYRT but I don't have a wardrobe album since there aren't stock photos of all my items. I refer back to my January wardrobe post when I need to and I have a folder on my desktop with seller pics of stuff I've bought since then. I used to use lolibrary's wardrobe feature for old burando pieces, but that's borked now.

I think my wardrobe is ok consistency wise, but I have a lot of work to do to fix it and fill in the gaps. When I see a piece that pops up I often think if it'll work with both sides of my wardrobe. Because of this, I'm looking to get more skirts to work with my boystyle jackets. Yellow dots are things I will probably put up for sale.

I do want lighter pieces though, for both lolita and boystyle. Happy to have purchased two white boz pieces.

>> No.9587472

Apart from a few pieces on the bottom row, this all looks extremely cohesive to me! As long as you can coord them I don't see a need to abandon oddball pieces, unless there are space issues. Make a list of what accessory/basic pieces are missing if you have to.

Second from the right on the top is really beautiful, where's it from?

That doesn't happen here, though.

it's superficial to post your actual wardrobe, but it's not to post stock photos?

Do you believe people on here? Like are gulls never skeptical? Is that why you guys take bait so easily??

I'm gonna take a picture of my closet. Like the other anon did.. I didn't say take an amazing photo of each of your dresses.

I knew everyone was gonna throw a shitfit over this. You guys are all so picky and compulsive. Especially those of you who automatically assumed you'd have to take a getty images level photo of each of your dresses. Fucking swear...

You know on the auto board people post proof pics of their cars?

Yes anon I know. I have albums for both because LJ layout and sizing is shit. I was more referring to how do you label everything if you don't have an album for your dresses. You'd either have to look up every dress or leave them unlabeled. Neither of which sounds like a good idea.

Most people only have 1-2 cars. I really don't see the issue with stock photos, I can still get a sense of the person's style. Who cares if it's true or not, it's not like I'd ever meet them anyway. Why can't you just let people admire other people's clothes and taste anon?

Some of us just memorise the names of our dresses, anon.

Granted I'm a literal autist so that might be part of it, but at 60 dresses I've never had a problem remembering the names, especially since most of them will be in last year's post anyway (for the first post I ever made I did have to manually look everything up). I also have a Word document with links to lolibrary for a few older solids with really generic names I might otherwise forget, and it's not too much of a burden to go back and check receipts for a few pieces each year. A stock photo album just has pictures not the name anyway - you might as well just have a document with a list.

You sniped Meta's High Waist Shirring Tiered off Wunderwelt before I could and I'm still mad. If it doesn't fit or flatter when it arrives I'd definitely be interested.

>> No.9587549

You know you can add descriptions to album images right? And it's more for the blouses, accessories, or socks that don't match a print. I agree dress names are easy to remember, but it makes posting your wardrobe easier when you can copy paste.

I mean, even with the names I'd be copy-pasting those items into lolibrary to check other details like release year first, so I prefer to operate using either lolibrary's actual wardrobe feature of a document with links to lolibrary, wayback machine, old shop blog posts etc. To each their own and it depends how you organize your wardrobe post and how much information you typically put in it, but for the way I put things together it wouldn't be any easier considering the number of items I have with no stock photos, although I can see why others like doing it (if my wardrobe was mostly recent AP I definitely would).

It's fantastic! A couple of them have popped up this year and the cut is so flattering and comfortable. Mine is sort of falling apart since it's so old, but I'm doing my best to restore it and am re-enforcing all the seams.

Thank you! I actually have the AATP skirt up for sale right now and you're right, the other two definitely don't fit in. I have Miracle Candy because it's a total nostalgia piece for me and Casablanca was one of those odd ones that I fell in love with the print, but unlike a lot of other things that would stand out I actually have a nice coord with it. I can't see myself keeping both forever, but they're nice for now and are getting some use.

I can coord everything, but there are definitely space issues, which is why I'm thinking of cutting back down to perhaps an even more cohesive / capsule wardrobe.

Kinda unrelated, but how do you guys sort the blouses and other accessories that you want to sell?

if you're carefull, it shouldn't fuck up too much. the best thing to do it to remove the stitching on both the bottom and top of the bodice in the places where the boning is, and open up the top too.

Wardrobe conversation always made me wonder, since ye olde egl days. Why does one need over 30 main pieces to have an "ok sized wardrobe"? Were you like that with normie clothes as well? Do you have a walk in closet for all that?

I have a collection of ~25 different normie skirts and most people I know consider that way too much already, and they occupy considerably less space than lolita skirts would.
I'm building up now that I finally have a job and five main pieces already feel "sizeable" in terms of wearableness, but not nearly enough for me to stop buying another piece every month.

If you're just "disappointed", fair enough. But don't expect everyone to have a big wardrobe. Also some of us have jobs/things to do and cannot wear it as much as we would like, thus don't have as much.
Also some of us including me are just too lazy to post a collage. It's too much hassle.

As much as I like big and impressive wardrobes I also enjoy small wardrobes. The more cohesive the better. I remember a 12 pieces wardrobe back in the EGL days I absolutely adored.

They are one of my favorites too and so fun to coord! I'd give my right arm for Meta to release medical themes again.

Thank you. Always keep an eye on the dream dress thread, me and other anons are rooting for you.

Thank you anon, a problem shared is a problem halved, haha.
Don't be, old Maxicimam may be beautiful but not too rare. If I see it again or ever decide to sell it, I'll make sure to post it here. The dress next to it is actually Btssb from 2000 or earlier. This anon >>9587465 owns the velveteen version and there seems to be a black colorway too! I don't have any accounts for coords, but I'm contemplating it for some time now.
No I'm sorry, I don't but I found japanese lolitas wearing it in the Gothic&Lolita Book and Kera Maniax: http://imgur.com/a/jszPa (I also added some pictures of the Baby OP in case you're interested)
It does look a bit weird on me personally, but it's a really adorable dress. Just a warning: If you're tall, it's going to be quite short on you. It's nothing an underskirt or a petticoat with matching lace couldn't fix, but still.

Thank you! Some of them are still on the market in other colors. If you want to, I can post or send some links.

Wow anon. I'm flattered, thank you. Though I have to disagree, I see some really elegant wardrobes in here.

There are two days a week and a few occasions where I can't wear it or have to tone it down to the point where it doesn't look lolita anymore, but aside from that I wear it daily, yes.

Heart E's Cross Doll OP and Metamorphose's Engelsbeginn OP my friendo of good taste.

Late to the party but here is my clusterfuck wardrobe. I have a few pieces i couldnt find nice photos of plus some handmade. Im generally buying more IW the past year or so. Most of my wishlist items are IW. I wish i had the willpower to keep a small cohesive wardrobe but i just like wearing a little bit of everything so that probably will never happen.

Anon I hope this doesn't come off as rude in any way, but if you are ever willing to let go of your twinkle mermaid jsk in black I would be very interested. It has been my dream dress since 2005.

Most normies have way over 30 "main pieces", that's why Project 333 is a thing and was considered challenging and minimalist to get your wardrobe down to that size. I downsized when I went to university but when I was in HS I basically lived in jeans, T-shirts and hoodies but when I counted my clothes I realised I had over 80 items.

It does look weird to normies to have like 30 dresses specifically though. I wear toned-down vintage-y classic which your typical person might mistake for normie vintage while it's hanging on a rail, and every friend or builder/contractor coming to do a repair that comes into my apartment comments on how many dresses I have and is shocked. Most of my dresses are hidden away in a wardrobe too so they're only seeing the 10-15 pieces that I have out.

I think it is partly the collecting side and also that lolita isn't really worn to be practical, it's worn to embody a certain aesthetic. if someone only likes one specific style and colour palette they might be satisfied with a few pieces but if someone likes a lot of different looks there's definitely a temptation with lolita to want to have the ability to wear all of them in your closet.

I'm glad someone got that blackxwhite tiered skirt, it's super cute and I was considering it myself!

>Don't be, old Maxicimam may be beautiful but not too rare.
You think? There's never more than a handful of Maxicimam pieces on auctions at any given time and a lot of second-hand sites don't have a dedicated tag for it so it's hard to sift through all the Axes Femme etc in the "other" section to find it. I've been a fan of old Maxicimam for a couple of years and only seen a handful of their blackxwhite OPs, and not the ones I love most.

Thanks so much for linking me the pics though! I think I might bite the bullet and get Velveteen Ginger Man when I can, I can't believe I forgot about that coord of it in pink but I'd not seen the blackxwhite coord before. About the other OP, I didn't actually mean the BtSSB cross lace OP, which I'm already familiar with from oldschool threads. I meant the second OP from the left on the fourth row, the one with corset lacing in the front and a long A-line cut that looks old.

Those are some awesome Moitie pieces and I like your raschel Meta OP too.

Sorry anon! I just got it a little over a year ago! I was spamming the DD thread like crazy until i found it. Ill definately post there if i ever see it pop up again (assuming your the one who posted looking for it) I remember when it came out in 2006 and i was just a poorfag high schooler with no brand international shipping, so it was definately my most exciting purchase out of all of them!

>> No.9588698

Thanks anon! I've been loving Moitie lately for dinner date/family night coordinates! I also wish i had more of an occasion to rock the lace monster trumpet sleeves haha but maybe ill just say fuck it once it starts to cool down and wear it around campus anyways.

That's understandable! It's a beautiful dress. I hope I can be as lucky as you to own it.

Well, it always seemed to me like there's a lot (I can remember seeing it a few times on Wunderwelt) but now after going through the tags you're right, I'm sorry. Maybe searching for the japanese name マム(Mam) マキシマム(Maximam) or a combination of japanese and english helps a bit more. To be honest, I wasn't actively searching for the dress, just got lucky and found it because I bought another dress of the seller.
And god, I feel you with the Axes Femme and other unrelated brands in brand searches. Especially in IW's mercari tag.

Yes, go for it anon! The OP is Metamorphose's High Waist Ladder Lace Tiered OP. Lolibrary lists the year as 2004 but someone wore the white colorway in a GLB from 2003.

It's a Mille Noirs OP from 2006 and was love at first sight, I think there was only one other occasion where I bought a dress that fast lol. After searching the wayback machine for it, google translated the name as "NOP-531 Buckle Long Sleeve OP".
