Here we go with this weeks answers for the EGL Wardrobe Challenge created by @thefabledfawn on Instagram! Thank you to all that read my post from last week. Remember to let me know in the comments if you are doing this as well and share your IG handle if you’d like!
7. An Item You Could Never Sell
Decoration Dream – Angelic Pretty (back frill jsk)
To be completely honest, there aren’t many things in my wardrobe I am willing to sell but Decoration Dream would be one of those pieces you’d have to pry out of my cold dead hands. This dress encompasses everything that drew me to lolita in the first place. The colors are the perfect shades of pastel and they can easily inspire so many different color combinations for coords. The ultra cavity-inducing sweetness of the cakes and the rocking horses is too cute. If I could just jump into this print à la Blue’s Clues “blue-skidoo” I would live there forever. (If you didn’t get that reference you may be too young for me, friend.)
8. Your Favorite Novelty Item
I am not too keen on collecting brand novelty items. Some people love it which is awesome, but I feel like if I am spending money on brand I better be able to wear it somehow. So here is a picture of the only novelty items I own: an Angelic Pretty calendar I got with the dress I bought at the AP Paris shop and an Angelic Pretty hand mirror I got in my gift bag at the Dream Masquerade Carnival event in London a few years back. Even though they were freebies, I love how cute they look in my wardrobe room.
9. Your Most Popular Colour
Pink! Pink! PINK!!
Shocking, right?! There is no doubt pink is my most popular colour not just for lolita fashion but also for everything else in my life.
10. The Best Bargain Find
Logo Embroidery Cutsew Cardigan – Angelic Pretty
I found this on LaceMarket for less than half the price I normally see this cardigan go for. Not to mention it was new with tags! I couldn’t believe it was so incredibly cheap so much that I kept checking to make sure it wasn’t a fake. It’s my first and only brand cardigan and it made me realize how different lolita specific cardigans are to casual wear cardigans. One of my 2019 lolita goals is to invest in a few more brand cardigans because I always find myself preferring the look of them.
11. The Oldest Item You Own (by year released)
Swan Lake Frill JSK – Metamorphose Temps de Fille
This dress was released in 2008 and all my other dresses were released from 2010 onward. In complete honesty, this dress doesn’t match my style so much anymore. I bought it very early on before I realized that it’s better to hunt for pieces that match your wardrobe rather than snatching up whatever is cheap. It’s a very cute dress and I love the swans on the print, but the dropped waist doesn’t flatter my shape very well and I barely wear black. However, it’s a really good dress if I feel like dressing more casually.
12. Your Craziest Accessory
I’m not one for crazy OTT headpieces and I usually opt for loading up a bunch of smaller accessories alongside a typical head bow, but for my first ever brand tea party I made a huge Poinsettia and snowflake head piece. I seriously loved this headpiece back when I was experimenting with different levels of OTT (I even made a scepter that lit up for this meet!). The theme was Winter Wonderland so I thought it went perfectly with the look. Even though it looks a little bit silly to me now, I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t want to make a better one and wear it again!
13. The Oddball
Twinkle Star – Angelic Pretty (JSK)
I had no problem choosing the oddball out of my wardrobe. There are so many reasons why this dress sticks out from the rest of my pieces. As I mentioned earlier, I don’t normally wear black.. It’s the only dress I own with a halter neck which makes it difficult to pair with certain blouses. It’s also very short on me, even more so than most lolita dresses thanks to my height (#talllolitaproblems). Despite all these things, I treasure this dress! I find all the silver stars so cute and they make the dress lean toward sweet despite it being black. I also love how the chiffon feels so incredibly nice over the thicker layers of the dress’ skirt.
Thank you for joining me for this challenge! Come back for Pt. 3 next week ❤
