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.

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

  1. Seems like you had a very good year in Lolita, productive and wearing the fashion a lot. That's a goal I'd like to reach one day :)

    1. Anyone can do! It takes effort to set time aside when you are busy, but it's worth it because it's an active rest and pursuing your happiness so you're then more ready to face the daily struggles of life again!
