Wardrobe Tag

On Amino App this wardrobe tag was really popular the last 2 weeks, so I thought why not making it too, but on my blog, because doing it on the phone is such a hassle when you want to add many pictures >_<

1. Do you still own the first Lolita item you bought?
It depends on what I count as my first item. When I found out about Lolita and started to read in a local Lolita message board, someone posted that you can buy some overknee socks at a local store which are Lolita. So I directly went to the store and bought them, and I still have those socks.
But if I count my first real Lolita item, a strawberry skirt from Angelic Pretty, then I don't own it anymore (however I sold it to another beginner Lolita and it was her first item as well ^_^)

2. What is the oldest Lolita piece in your wardrobe?
This headdress from Beth, from 2006. I won it at a raffle a few years ago but have never worn it yet, but I just can't give it away because it's such a historical piece haha.

3. What is the newest Lolita piece in your wardrobe?
Shadow Dream Carnival Special Set from Angelic Pretty, it's from 2016 and I bought it this summer in the Paris store.

4. What is the cheapest main piece in your wardrobe?
My Bubble Bath skirt from Metamorphose, I found it in Closed Child Osaka for around 20€ !!

5. What is the most expensive main piece in your wardrobe?
My Castle Mirage dress from Angelic Pretty, it cost 333€, but it was only so expensive because I bought it in the Paris store last year >_< Usually I don't spend so much money for my dresses, but I saved up money to buy something nice for me.

6. Which of your Lolita items is your favorite?
I would say that I love all my items, but my currently favorite item is the Bubble Bath skirt because it's just so cute and hilarious at the same time haha.

7. Which item do you wear the least?
This is a hard question because I have many items I don't wear often >_< I will just generally say I don't wear my Lolita bags often because they are sooo small, and also some of my jewellery, because I have fear to brake them (pretty stupid I know xD)

8. Which item do you wear the most?
I would say my berets, because I'm often too lazy to do something with my hair, and also I get headache from wearing headbows or hairclips, so they are my most used items.

9. Is there anything in your Lolita wardrobe that you haven't worn yet?
Yes, this Salopette from Maxicimam which I bought this summer in Japan, and this bag from Btssb which I bought over a year ago, but it is so small and also really hard to carry and just inconvenient. But too beautiful to sell >_<

10. What is missing from your Lolita wardrobe?
I miss a lot of head accessories which are comfortable for me and which I can wear with simple hair styling (my hair is so thin and flat that it is really difficult to wear something more fancy with simple hair styling). Also I need a lot of blouses and cardigans.

11. When will your Lolita wardrobe be complete?
My wardrobe will be complete when I can create all my outfits with perfectly matching items, and when I don't have to wear some items just because I didn't found better ones. I don't want to focus on a high number of dresses, but instead of a small number of complete outfits.

12. What was the last Lolita item you sold or threw away?
I sold my Alice in Wonderland JSK from Btssb, it was beautiful but unfortunately too small ;__;

13./14./15. How many OPs/JSKs/skirts do you have?
7 / 5 / 3

16. How many petticoats do you have?
1 (I feel like I'm the only Lolita on the planet who only owns one xD)

17. What do you plan to buy next?
I plan to buy a full set of Wonder Party from Angelic Pretty, because I want to wear the same outfit like my doll. I also plan to buy a Sweet Lolita OTT outfit.

18. When you first started wearing Lolita, what did you want your wardrobe to be like?
I wanted to have a wardrobe full of Country Lolita, because it was cute, but I thought it was simple enough to not get too much attention from strangers on the street. But after my first Lolita meet up I realised that I still got a lot of attention, and I quickly changed to a mix of Sweet and Country Lolita.

19. What is your Lolita wardrobe currently like?
Sweet Lolita! I only bought 2 Classic Lolita dresses (of which I just sold one) because I wanted to own very simple dresses which I can wear when I don't feel like getting attention on the streets (even after all this years I still hate it).
Actually not my current closet at all, half of the stuff is from a friend as well xD

20. What would you like your wardrobe to be in the future?
I want to focus on OTT Sweet Lolita again, I really love the good old AP clone style and I'm working on some outfits. I also want to wear Maid Lolita and I'm
currently buying materials to sew my own accessories for it.

Bring & Buy event

Last weekend I visited a Bring & Buy event which was organized by some local Lolitas. Unfortunately I totally forgot to take any pictures during the event, but the reason is because I just had so much fun and was constantly talking to people or looking through the items! So the only picture you get is one of my purchases ^^'''

I just want to describe the event. There were around 30-40 people and we had sooo much stuff for sale. I felt like in Closed Child haha. If I didn't wanted to save up money for some Lolita events next year, I surely would have bought a lot. But at the end of the event there was still a lot of stuff available. I think more people came to sell rather than to buy. But for me it was a success, I could sell 2 dresses and 1 pair of pants which just didn't fit me well.

Besides shopping, we also had cupcakes, cakes, tea and coffee, and there were tables where you could sit down and have a good talk to people.

I liked that the event pulled many Lolitas who either don't go to meet-ups often or who live far away. So it was really nice for me too meet old friends or new girls from my own city.

Of course I have to show you my purchases now: a bunny headbow from AP, a Gosurori and a GLB Boudoir.

GLISH - favorite pictures

Hello dears!
The last 1,5 weeks I participated in the game "GLISH" - Great Lolita International Scavenger Hunt. It's a game where you get around 50 challenges, and you have to take a picture for each one. For each completed challenge, you get some points, depending on how difficult the challenge was.

My group was "Team Cookie" and was composed of Lolitas from Canada, USA, England and Germany. We could complete all the challenges, however the winner group "Team Chocolate" donated more money and / or got more points for difficulty/creativity, so they won first place (GLISH is also dedicated to collect donations for charity). But each team did a really good job and the main purpose was to have fun!

I want to show you my favorite pictures of the game, but please also check out the Instragram-accounts of each team, I couldn't include all the awesome pictures because my blogpost will already be too long xD.

REVIEW: Eternita Magazine + Under the Sea Event scans

In October, a new magazine called Eternita was released in Japan. The name seems to me like a mix of eternal and Lolita. It actually has a few english words on the cover which say: "Fashion magazine for grown-up Alices". And indeed this magazine is dedicated to grown up Lolita Fashion or Otome styles.

At the beginning it shows items from basically all the Otome brands like Milk, Pink House, Leur Getter, Michal Negrin and many more. Then it follows with items from all major Lolita brands, like Angelic Pretty, Btssb, Innocent World etc., but it only shows the grown-up pieces of those brands.

After that they present some tutorials for natural hair styles and make-up, as well as a bigger chapter about handmade items. They show 15 tutorials for small sewing projects and accessories, which is quite a lot compared to the Lolita Bible. I find them quite inspiring and I even found a few I would like to recreate.

The last pages are event snaps with a full page of the Under the Sea event! (You can view all outfit pictures and more pictures of the event at the Facebook page of Eternita *here* ^_^).

Overall I like the magazine, it has comparable quality to the Lolita Bible, but it is definitely more related to Otome than Lolita style. So I recommend it more for people who are interested in Otome or very natural Lolita styles.

Thank you for reading,
Miuko~ <3
