Almost two years ago, 15-years-old me was just browsing around the internet, looking for a new coat for the winter. Than suddenly, she stumbled upon not just a nice, worm and frilly coat, nooo, she actually found a so-called ''lolita coat''..
Okay, so maybe this isn't the most beautiful coat ever and I'm glad I didn't end up buying it, but this really was my first introduction to lolita fashion!
I immediately began doing my research on sites like HelloLace and Lolita fashion wiki. Also, I tried to find my local comm and thanks to one Dutch blog I actually found it! (Rosalynn if you read this, I still want to thank you for replying to my questions back than <3)
Coord progress 2014-2015
My first coord was mainly made out of Bodyline. I had ordered the skirt really early in my research progress and hadn't really though about quality lace and fabric, but I guess it wasn't actually that bad.
With the same order also came two cardigans and later on I managed to get some shoes and blouse really cheaply at a Dutch second hand website as well.
The skirt is way too short and not my current style at all, but this coord definitely still has a special place in my heart <3.
By the way, a special thanks to everyone at my first meet for giving my such a nice experience and great advice, if I wouldn't have had such a good time at my first meetup I maybe wouldn't have been where I am now ^^.
At the same time, I also made this coord out of (almost) all clothes I already owned... (only the blouse is Btssb)
When I wore it I felt really pretty, but when I saw the pictures later I realized it wasn't that good at all hehe. Especially now, I think this was really my most ita-ish coord :p.
The top is alright, the shoes and skirt-length are not. (On these pictures it's not even that bad though, I only saved the most okay ones on my computer)
Coord progress 2015-2016
Okay, so these last two coords were all from the first year, but during the following summer holiday I would visit Japan for the first time as well. I'd saved up some money so I could finally buy my first brand dress at ClosetChild.
I began my second year with a whole new idea for my lolita style and really focused on getting high-quality classic pieces, all in very matching colours like wine, brown and ivory, This really helped me getting the (still quite small, but very cohesive) wardrobe I have now.
Here are some of the coords I've made this last year, some are quite casual, some very ott! (Just chose the ones I have the best pictures of, I often forget to photograph my outfits properly so this isn't complete at all!)
My first big event was Behind the Mask, I wore an IW JSK with all black and wine accessories.
These are some floordinates, one classic but on the sweet side, the others more dark (also circus!) ^^.
I soon found out I really love ott, so I tried to go full out during the UTS tea party ^^.
As you can see I started out with very sweet lolita (I somehow felt classic was so unattainable for me!?), eventually got really into classic and even tried to make some outfits a bit more gothic here here and there.
This summer I bought some new pieces again, most of them are very classic or old school, but very recently I realized I'd also still really like to wear sweet every now and then ^^..
My latest dress!
Thank you for reading! (And wow, I do wear those red Btssb shoes often 0.o)
