2014: My third frilly year

I attended just two meetups this year,
and a tiny picnic with my friend Tairesia in July.

My wardrobe's storage finally got a huge upgrade!

From January to April, I bought pretty much all pieces for my navy x pink astronomical outfit I've been dreaming about. I really wanted Angelic Pretty Dreamy Horoscope JSK in navy but for long I didn't dare to invest so much into a 'childish' sack dress like that. Costing me 200 USD before shipping and taxes, it's my most expensive piece, but it's so pretty. Definetly worth it :3

I also utterly failed on a wig. Since wigs are so common and nice in this fashion, I wanted to get one too! I got a short twin-tail wig in milky color, which turned out to be rather light brown instead, but the wig is from nice, heat-resistant fibers. Just the stupid wig caps slide off my head! How does one put on this, even? I have to find that out...

Picking new petticoat turned out to be huge success. My only petticoat is deflated beyond help short of a miracle, but I came across Bunny House and got a wonderful but affordable Bunny House petticoat!

It was a year of changes for me. I got pregnant so I bought a few suitable pieces to wear lolita fashion even with big belly. The BtSSB Cherry patterned mesh op in black is from stretchy cutsew material and highwasted (more on this dress..), the BtSSB cutsew is very spacious, and AP Precocious lady JSK in pink is highwaisted too  (more on this dress..).

So much new brand this year! To avoid sweating on it in summer, I bought a Cosmic replica *cough* *cough* for casual wear in summer and since there was a trouble with the seller I ended up with accessories as a compensation. I would really like to find someone with the original and compare the pieces.. all I had discerened from the stock photos is the replica doesn't have that black underbust line.

And also got a couple random things: an offbrand bag, Bodyline's tote bag, frilly OTKs in white and black, and new shoes since mine are quite falling apart

I gave birth to a baby boy in September. I was tired a lot and taking nonstop care of the baby meant switching from laptop to smartphone for me, so to pass the time I started to tumblr, sorting lolita fashion pictures by brand and print on Sweet Dreamworld (over 13,000 sorted images by 2017). Here's a list of the prints you can click on to get just images of the print of interest.

My photographing skills reached an acceptable level, so I finally tried my hand at blogging at autumn and wrote a few blog posts on my livejournal, now inactive. The posts were moved to my blogspot.

2014-10 Way too indepth look at some brand socks.
2014-11 Chess Story : Marriage d'Amour JSK

To the end of the year, I got another dream print, Wonder Party in sax. I really liked it from first sight but seeing it in person last year, I made my mind about buying it. The dress is quite expensive so I got a skirt.. I needed a fancy skirt anyway!

I wore lolita fashion a lot this year. As my wardrobe is of decent size now, and suitable for various temperatures, I could wear lolita fashion nearly daily.

It was my best year so far! What were you doing in 2014?

2014-11 Chess Story : Marriage d'Amour JSK

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it, back when it was released in 2012 and I was new to the fashion. It took me about a year to hunt it down secondhand.. but I finally did it!

          Name: Marriage d'Amour 
Brand: Chess Story 
Year: 2012               
Link: Lolibrary       


Its an awesome dress. It is made from cotton and with its 95 cm lenght it is the longest dress I have. It has removable waist ties, a sewn-in petticoat and side zipper for easier dressing up. Beside the back shirring, the size can also be adjusted by the ribbons on the sides and the shoulder straps are on buttons in the back.

I took the side ribbons out, they dont match anything else I have. I'm so happy with the dress! If I ever get married, Im definetly taking this one for the occasion =^.^=

2014-10 Way too indepth look at some brand socks.

Most of my brand is actually dresses, those are the main pieces of any wardrobe and the item which makes the outfit stand out the most. Its worth investing into as it makes outfit stand out the most - much more so than four pieces of AP plastic jewelry of the same cost, or those AP tea parties noone can tell from Secret Shop shoes anyway. But did you ever wonder what those brand socks with lace or without are like? The details, the feels? I did, so I got some!

Name: Wide Lace High Socks 
Brand: BtSSB 
Year: 2009
Lolibrary Entry 

I got these new today (2014-06-09) in offwhite, that means its been laying in someone's closet for 4 years, wow! Size says 22-24 and theres some japanese sticker on it I can't read. The cotton lace needed ironing and looks a bit bulky on the under the knee socks.. I guess it would be called old-school by now. 


Name: Torchon Lace OTKs 
Brand: IW 
Year: 2006  
Lolibrary Entry 

I got these new today (2014-06-09) in black, which makes them 8 years old o.O Theres still even the tag attached! They're rather knee high on me, and I'm not even particularly tall with my 165 cm -.-' 

Name: Antique Perfume Bottle OTKs 
Brand: IW 
Year: 2013  
Lolibrary Entry 

It's definetly these OTKs, but in Black x Pink, which is not listed on Lolibrary, wow! I got them in a gift bag at Innocent World Tea Party in Wien at autumn 2013.


Name: Fruit Punch OTKs 
Brand: Metamorphose 
Year: 2011 
Lolibrary Entry 

I bought these in pink secondhand as my first brand hoisery. 


It turned out the details are what - embroided? In there, not printed as I thought. The first two are made of cotton and I seem to be too tall for them! The other two are a blend with polyester, much smoother at touch and more stretchy. They're big enough for me - did they start to make them longer or is it because they're more stretchy? I'll have to include a picture of all them together someday to find out! I still wonder about printed tights though - how sturdy they are and if they're fully opaque. I'll have to get one someday...

2014-07 Picnic in Ceske Budejovice

The lolita fashion community in our city fell apart during the year. Someone moved, stopped dressing up, or whatever, I don't even know.. people just went silent and didn't come anymore. It's just me and Tairesia left now. So we decided to throw us a picnic!

I can't walk very far by now, as Im expecting a baby in a few weeks, so we made the picnic in the nearby park. The trick is to fluff the petticoat to the sides and behind, the belly takes the front! :D

2014-06 Got an Angelic Pretty Precocious Lady JSK, yay!

The summer is comming and I realized all my lolita clothing is heavy cotton. It was time for some summer shopping! Then I saw this Sales post.

Name: Precocious Lady JSK 
Brand: Angelic Pretty 
Year: 2013


2014-06-06 Today I got in mail a package with Precocious Lady JSK, yay!

Its really incredible for summer. The jaquard layer is thin but beautiful, the dress has a thin satin layer under it and built-in satin petticoat. Theres very forgiving shirring in the back and the straps have two buttons in back to adjust the lenght. The color is a bit peachy pink shade, not the usual baby pink, but I have stuff to coord with it anyway! The waistline is high, so I can easily fit in even during pregnancy, and it still has lot of shirring in reserve =^.^= This is going to be great for hot weather, but Ive a cute sweater of exactly the same shade of peachy pink for colder summer too!

2014-06 Meetup in Brno

In June 2014, I asked my friends in Brno for a small meetup. It will be the last one for me for a good while. I picked my most sack dress, Angelic Pretty Dreamy Horoscope JSK in navy, and paired it with navy An*Tai*Na tea parties, pink Bodyline bolero, TaoBao OTKs, and a loads of pastel offbrand accessories.

Amai came in Angelic Pretty's Sweet Cream House apron skirt, it has such a wonderful print and she was so cute in it! Kiki took a cherry printed high-waisted Bodyline skirt.

Oh wow I got a nice present from Kiki! It was so thoughtful of her. Yes that's right, I'm expecting a baby and won't be able to attend meetups for a good while, as I live in different city. Actually, on the meetup photo I'm already in 7th month ^.^ I went from normal dresses to high-waistdresses to sack dresses, frills all the way! :)
