2018 Wardrobe Post


Hello bats, and welcome to my wardrobe post! This is my first time participating in this time-honoured EGL tradition. It's difficult to take photos indoors in winter where I live, so please excuse the questionable image quality. I'm finally at a place where I'm pretty happy with my current wardrobe and I'm eager to start diversifying what I have a little bit.
My goals for next year:
† Add more red, white, and blue pieces to my wardrobe. I have enough black!
† Hunt down more solid Moitié pieces, especially from pre-2005.
† Start collecting Moitié floral pieces.
† Start getting into old school (especially old Meta and Baby) and ero.
† Make more hairpieces and accessories.

Anyways - onto the wardrobe! I'm supremely lazy, so I didn't take photos of all my stuff - namely shoes, accessories, jewellery, and items that I plan on selling soon - but all of my blouses and main pieces are here.

Moi-même-Moitié Iron Gate JSK (2006) 
The gothic holy grail! Mine is very faded compared to pretty much every other Iron Gate I've seen in peson, so I guess mine was thoroughly loved before I bought it - that makes me kind of happy in a way. If I can get the JSK in every colourway I'll have a holy trinity.

Moi-même-Moitié Silent Moon JSK (2011)
My best friend saw this dress for super cheap on Fril whil I was at work and bought it for me before anyone else could snag it!


Moi-même-Moitié Holy Stained Glass JSK (2011)

Moi-même-Moitié Sleeping Garden Chiffon OP (2012)

Atelier Pierrot Chiffon Bustle Dress (2018)

Moi-même-Moitié Asymmetry Corset Skirt (2010)
This skirt is possibly the absolute worst thing I've ever smelled. I left it on a balcony for 2 weeks in the dead of winter and washed it in vinegar and detergent literally a dozen times before the smell completely came out. I guess it was cheap for a reason!

Moi-même-Moitié Cross JSK (2008)

Moi-même-Moitié Gothic Arch Skirt (2006)
This print series is a testament to Moitié's quality. 13 years old and the print is still crisp, bright, and flawless. The skirt hasn't pilled a single bit - the only real sign of age is that the waistband button is loose! It also has a pocket.

Alice and the Pirates Bird Cage JSK (2012)

Moi-même-Moitié Holy Queen Skirt (2009)
Over the years I've owned and then sold Holy Queen in every single cut and colourway, but this is the one that I finally decided to keep!

Angelic Pretty Katrina OP (2014)
This dress is the only Angelic Pretty piece I've owned in my entire history of wearing lolita. I would consider AP to be my least favourite brand, but I love some of their lacy solid dresses and cutsews.


Alice and the Pirates Gathered Chiffon JSK (2011) 
This JSK was a birthday gift from my boyfriend! I feel that this dress is a classic staple item that all gothic lolitas should own.


Moi-même-Moitié Royal Gate OP (2013)


Écailles de Lune Shadow Garden JSK (2016)

Écailles de Lune Black Goat of the Woods JSK (2017)
I sold this dress to someone and regretted it immediately after, but she quit lolita a few months later and I ended up buying it back from her!

Moi-même-Moitié Asymmetric Lace-Up JSK (2012)

Moi-même-Moitié Falling Cross JSK (2015)

Victorian Maiden Double Cross Shantung Skirt (2001)

Atelier Pierrot Crinkle Corset OP (2010) 

Atelier Pierrot Corset OP (2018) 

Atelier Pierrot Soiree OP (2017)


Moi-même-Moitié Dot Chiffon OP (2013)


Moi-même-Moitié OP (approx. 2001)
Based on the item number, this dress is probably from around 2001, but I can't find any product photos. I think it might have been intended to be worn as roomwear or casual wear. It's very soft and comfortable, and I love the pretty rose buttons!

Metamorphose Temps de Fille Rose Flocky Skirt (2009)

Atelier Pierrot Tiered Skirt (2007)

Moi-même-Moitié Silent Moon JSK (2011)
This was my very first dream dress, and one of the first dresses I bought when I started wearing the fashion. It's still my favourite dress, and I hope to get every single colourway at some point.


Moi-même-Moitié Cross Frame Lace-Up JSK (2015) 
This is the JSK I wore to my very first lolita meetup at Atomic Lollipop (RIP) in 2015. Frame Cross is such an underrated series...the shantung fabric with the glitter print is so beautiful.


MOU Clothing Surgical Knife JSK (2018)

Moi-même-Moitié Butterfly Print JSK (2001)


Moi-même-Moitié Skirt (unknown year)

Moi-même-Moitié Chandelier Print JSK (2007) 
This was my first white (well, off-white) main piece. From there I decided that I really liked shiro gothic, so I started collecting more and more! 


Moi-même-Moitié Cross OP (2018)
I was selected to model this dress at a Moitié fashion show in Finland. We were all joking around that I was the one wearing a Finnish flag dress instead of an actual Finn.

Moi-même-Moitié Cross & Roses OP (2014)

Moi-même-Moitié Divine Cross Print Skirt (2011)


Alice and the Pirates Simplice OP (2016)
