It's that time of year again! Every January, Lolitas across the Internet spend hours snapping photos of their closets to showcase their newest acquisitions and take inventory. I enjoy doing wardrobe posts because I get to see how my closet has changed in a year's time. I definitely have an ebb and flow of purchases and sales.
All in all, I'm pleased with my closet. I've finally reached a point where most of my items can be used interchangeably, though there are a few pieces that I still have to work with.
I got a new camera for Christmas and I'm still fiddling around with the settings. Hopefully the pictures don't look too funky.
Anywho~! Let's do this!!
My outerwear hasn't changed, lol. I want to buy another vest and get some boleros at some point.

|My shoe collection!|
|I got bagggssssss, bro|
See that teal basket? That's where I store my tights, which brings me to the next section!
Tights and Socks
|Baskets of legwear!|
|2016 hat collection that's still current!|
|Ok, some of these are repeats, lol.|
I retook the picture of my Sailor themed "boater" hat, because the ribbons weren't visible in the previous picture. Starting from the back row, from left to right: Fox Cherry (I think? Taobao), Sweet Dreamer (Taobao), Forever 21. The navy beret at the front is from Amensic Forest and is actually part of a matching set featuring a coat, the beret, and my blue bag. Take a look with this link.
The white and light blue hat is from Taobao and I won't pretend to remember the shop name. You can find an in-depth review on this lovely hat right here on my blog!
|Accessories and stuff.|
Every year for this section, I just toss all my crap on my bed and take a picture. I'm not breaking this down, lol. I'm too lazy for this, y'all. Most of my stuff comes from Taobao; I'll point out a few honorable mentions.
One honorable mention in the above image is that awesome pony brooch in red up there. One of my amazing comm members HANDMADE it for my birthday because she knows how much I love Star Night Theater. She made it specifically for *me* to wear with my dress. I seriously wanted to cry when she gave it to me. I was so touched by her attention to detail and her hard work. Mostly everything else in the image is Taobao or offbrand stuff.
|Yep, still stuff.|
My friends hate those huge Harry Potter framed glasses, but I LOVE THEM! Kick rocks, friends! Let me live my life, XP
|Gloves and brooches.|
For 2017, I want to try avoid buying mini skirts completely and focus on buying *dream prints only*. It will be a more costly endeavor, but I'm sure I can handle it!
Tell me, lovely readers, how has your closet changed over time? Have you noticed any drastic changes to your wardrobe? Tell me all about it in the comments!
Thanks for sticking with me to the end of this long post. I hope you had as much fun reading this as I did writing it! I wish you success in fulfilling all your dreams in the new year, my precious friends.
Stay beautiful, stay true,
