Little Dipper - Early Summer's Sweet Dreams Gingham Chiffon OP in Red L 2017

I actually madly want this in S, M, in red, and green. This dress feels like the epythome of country lolita. I love it.

Liz Lisa - Gingham Strawberry OP in Red

Liz Lisa may not properly be a lolita brand, but this dress definitely can fit a petti, and it's just so comfortable in summer. Gingham and strawberries are such a great combo too!
Top: Angelic Pretty - Angelic☆School Sailor Blouse in Red 2007
Skirt: Handmade by Mikibows

I wore this coord for a meet in summer, and it was great 😀 and also other times casually!
Meribel Summer Cherry OP+KC set in M

I got this dress from lacemarket, and I'm madly in love with it. I've worn it a lot from spring to autumn this year! A favorite of the old ladies in my town.

Innocent World - Strawberry Field JSK 2008

I adore this print in all its colorwas and shapes. all the little details, all of it, is just so cute and straight out of a delicate fairytale.

Angelic Pretty - Drained Cherry Ruffle Skirt 2015

This skirt is quite good to wear in summer, it has a built-in petti, and it's very light. Also, since it arrived damaged, I put my heart to rest and I wear it without fear a bit more casually.

Miss Point - Green underbust JSK in M 2021

I'm happy I actually got also the matching hat and brooch! It's a very cute classic piece, and I like green pieces, and love desperately underbusts. I'm very fond of Miss Point!

I got to wear it again to visit a villa this year, and it was so perfect for it!

Le Carrousel - Romantic Garden Onepiece, Size P, color Cinza

I actually was aiming for the pink colorway to match my friend Monty, which motivated my whole haul with Le Carrousel.

This piece is simply divine, very light and flowy, and I love that it has wine details! (which is more in my style rather than pink tbh)

Innocent World - Francine OP 2013

I have a huge soft spot for sailor dresses, and especially the way Innocent World interprets them. I got this OP together with another one, by total chance, causally spotting them on LaceMarket. A perfect summer dress, as the fabric not only is very light and transpiring, it also doesn't stay sweaty for long!

Alice Girl -When the Camellia Blooms JSK set

I got this set of JSK, bonnet, ribbon and apron on preorder, and I'm glad I did! I don't have many bonnets yet and it's so nice to wear them! I also often steal the apron from this set to use with other dresses.

Miss Point - Elizabeth OP set

I want to wear this for the first teaparty I'll attend next year, in February! I realized too late that I forgot to also get the headdress, so I hope it will come in time! I missed the first preorder, so I'm very happy I found a reseller that had it.

Innocent World - Eleonore JSK in Sax 2011

A gingham dress in sax and by IW is like a dream! It has the vibes of The Wizard of Oz like this, it's so adorable! I wore it in summer and I can't wait to wear it again many times!

Innocent World - Tartan OP in M 2018

This one is not on lolibrary, nor can I find it elsewhere besides this website indicated by the lacemarket seller I got it from. It is however a light, beautiful dress. I don't particularly find the belt useful, but the lace in the front is so pretty!

Dear Celine - Summer Caroline Plaid College in Navy M 2022

This dress was calling to me. And it has pockets! Dear Celine is an awesome brand, I love that basically everything I get from them is functional, never has to be ironed, has pockets and is very comfortable. I hope to wear this more in summer!

Victorian Maiden - Paulette Frill OP 2006

I got this OP from a dear friend, Jules! I still have to replace the elastics on the shoulders as they are a bit large on me and fall off for now, but I'm looking forward to taking this beauty out on some activity! I'm on a plaid/tartan streak this year.

Bodyline Navy Sailor JSK

One of the jsks made by Bodyline of which I actually really like the quality. I like to pair it with the Sakurafairy beret and the crab purse!

Innocent World - UV Cut Stripe Sailor OP in Sax 2013

I feel like I got a very obscure item from 2013 since this colorway isn't even on lolibrary! I adore it, the fabric is very light and doesn't need to be ironed. It is the cutest sailor dress!

Angelic Pretty - Pleats A La Mode Skirt 2014

A moment of praise for the seller on vinted who sold me the skirt, the cutsew and gifted me the big ribbon too. (that belongs to another cutsew). This skirt was my main companion at the seaside trip I posted about this year.

Dear Celine - Magic Book OP in Green

I adore this dress, I've been wearing it a lot this winter, it's great for quirky casual wear and otome, and just to have an elegant look but not too OTT. And it has two pockets!

Yukine's Box - Library JSK in Red 2017

A gorgeous JSK, but a bit butchered. It's missing corset lacing, the belt, and I just noticed the previous owner ripped the buttons out. But it looks sturdy and it will be loved.

Juliette et Justine - La bibliotheque JSK 2013

A dream dress, unfortunately a size too big, and I overpaid for it, but I wanted it greatly. Because the size is wrong but the condition is amazing, I'd like to find it in my size and resell this one, so I'm a bit afraid to use it and ruin it.

Alice and the Pirates - Rose's Prisoner in Pirates Ship JSK II 2015

A piece I got from the swap meet, by swapping it for the Royal Cards OP! It is very particular and a bit outside my usual taste, but the boning and construction is incredible, and I'm looking forward to wearing it at a meet!

Innocent World - Antique Cutlery Tiered JSK 2014

This dress is so cute. Underbust JSKs are such a blessing. It feels so perfectly classic, and I love the red and yellow accents and all the little details. Paired with a second hand IW wine blouse that has "seen things" but it's still a nice blouse in the end.

Innocent World - Agatte JSK 2015

This dress feels so academic! The above is my favorite coordination with it. (IW headdress and the necktie stolen from another gray dress) It's classic and elegant and a statement without being too much, so it's quite wearable.

Innocent World - Hildegard JSK in Navy 2011

I got this JSK and the ivory blouse from my dear friend kana-palu at the swap meet we had this year in Milan. It is so elegant! I hope to have an occasion to wear it soon.

Innocent World - Ladder Lace Flare OP 2012

Another splendid IW piece from 2012. Since I got it second hand from Vinted and it had a slight feel of wear, it allows me to just wear it without worrying too much about using it, and so I use it a lot, also casually!

Emily Temple Cute - Eyelet Lace Cutsew OP

I'm not sure I ISOd this dress correctly, but it looks exactly like it EXCEPT for the collar, and there's no other version of this on lolibrary. This dress is DIVINE. It has a feeling of wear now, but it's so simple, so comfortable, so pretty. I love it.

Fantastic Wind - The Florentine Traveller OP in grey M 2017

This is the coord that made me realize I could and wanted to wear lolita fashion. Took me two years to hunt down also the hat which was sold out in all the reseller websites but then I managed to find the taobao shop. I'm so satisfied. The details are beautiful and it feels like walking out of a Victorian novel when I wear it. It also has pockets!

Miss point - The rose academy OP in grey 2020

My Dark librarian outfit. It is thinner than the Florentine Traveller, but it has pears and beautiful lace details in the front. It's a bit more comfortable to wear inside. Very very classic. I also prefer to use IW headwear instead of its actual head ribbon which feels too big.

Miss Point - Underbust Corset JSK

Another Miss Point dress, this one is to be worn in cold climate as it is quite thick. It has these nice button details in the front that can be paired so nicely with a key necklace.

Angelic Pretty - Dot Candy Girl JSK 2011

Short dress with a built-in petticoat. It has a big cute bow in the back. The person who sold this decided to separate the set and sold the headdress before I bought the JSK, too bad. But I'm happy I found a hat to pair it with! I often wear this one for casualwear as it's super cute and extra comfortable over many hours.

Innocent World - Black Chemical Lace Striped JSK 2006

I received it in terrible condition, with all the shirring in the back completely ruined, I had it repaired and it's now a nice staple piece. Simple but classy. Thanks to kana-palu for helping me ISO this dress!

Dear Celine - Black OP

I got this baby from vinted, so I don't know anything else about it. Once again, it has pockets, needs no ironing, it's very comfortable and soft. And it can be washed with other normal clothes. As it is so simple and versatile, I wore it a lot in the past months, in and out of lolita fashion.

Avenue Denfer - Gem Bookcase Lolita OP in Wine 2022

The whole lolita fashion server I'm in wanted me to have this set! I was pinged by several people when it was announced, and then again when preorders opened. They were very adamant for me to get it, as they said it was a very "me" dress, so I complied, and wore it several times at the beginning of the year, and when it was cold again for ILD. I could have probably gotten an S instead of an M, but I love it dearly.

Angelic Pretty - Napoleon Marine JSK in Red 2012

I love red and blue and I love sailor themes, so I could not resist this dress. As it's a bit on the short side and very flashy, I'm waiting for the perfect occasion/theme meet to wear it and I have a coord that can work for it.

Amastacia - Star Moon Night Garden Set

The blue and red stripes in combination with the cut of the dress really made me go crazy about it. The dress arrived however in bad shape, never having been washed by the previous owner, I had to wash it and it bled so much red. Because of this I'm not really happy thinking about it. I still want to wear it sometimes in summer.

Innocent World - Ribbon Pintuck Skirt (short) 2010

This skirt had an unfortunate accident in transit, as the seller put it unprotected together with unsealed candies, which of course with humidity and all stained it on the belt, it also arrived all sticky. The dry cleaner couldn't remove the stains, (which are on the sides, no not really visible here). I'll try to wear it sometime, maybe covering it with a shirt.

Angelic Pretty - Precocious Lady JSK 2013

This dress has an interesting texture and it's very beautiful. It's a bit plain but this means it can be very versatile. My sister loves it so I can't bring myself to sell it just yet. It's also one of those dresses that would look amazing in elegant but casual situations.

Henrietta - Rose Bush Set in Ivory

This dress arrived with a huge mold stain the middle and several snags and damages (and the seller claimed it was new without tag). I have a headache just thinking about it. Probably the most offensive amount of damage from a second hand piece I got. After washing it, disinfecting, and taking a bit of care of it, it's in a better state. Since it's not in pristine condition, I also feel less scared to use it!

Le Carrousel - Saia Sweet Polka Dots in Red M

My red polka dots dream coming true. Of course I had to make a Minnie coord with it. When I visited Disneyland Paris I searched hard for a polka dot skirt and could only find a cheap horrible one. So now that I found this, I'm quite happy!

Angelic Pretty - French Dot Dream OP in Blue 2014

I got this dress from a wonderful person, and it arrived in such a spotless state even if it was second hand! I've been after the red colorway of this for a long time, and I've yet to see it appear anywhere. The blue colorway is just as lovely, I love the stripes of the ribbon too. This is really a great dress. Casual, retro, cute, and yet elegant. I simply adore it. And it has a pocket!

Le Carrousel - Saia Sweet Polka Dots in Black M

I really love polka dots. This version of the skirt is a bit more discreet so it will be great to wear also in a casual setting!

Beaver Duke - Alpine Maiden set in Red 2022

This one was advertised as Ista Mori, but the tag said Beaver Duke, I'm unsure which is it! I got everything: the JSK, blouse, headscarf, rectangular headdress, necklace, and then I forgot to order the matching apron! Luckily the website still had some, so it's coming in the mail now.

Nya Nya Lolita - Love and Death Set

I got this set for a wa lolita meet we were supposed to have in March 2020. Well of course the meet never happened XD but I'm confident I'll find an occasion to wear it eventually.

Alice girl - The magic bows set in Black 2020

A delightful velveteen piece for Halloween. I was short-sighted as it was the first pieces I bought, and I didn't get the matching rectangular headdress, which I now regret, but I got the hat and blouse that match the set. I also love the pumpkin bag!

Tiny Garden - French Lady OP in M

I got this dress from Glitzy Wonderland and it arrived with the bottom panel falling off, half of it not sewn. I had it adjusted and I've worn it quite a bit, but I'm not too ecstatic about the quality. For casualwear it's ok and I like that i'ts orange enough to not clash with my skintone.

Souffle Song - In October The Stars JSK 2018

I got this dress in the Souffle Song lucky pack which included 3 items: this dress with a broken zipper, faded ruined socks, and a blouse that was fine. I had the zipper replaced and I now wear this dress by adding red accents to it.

Angelic Pretty - Twinkle Star Skirt in Black x White 2010

A very cute casual skirt! I already wore it a couple of times, and it's a delight!

Innocent World - Petit Ribbon Skirt in Brown 2012

Very simple and cute skirt! I generally wear it for casual lolita or toned down coords with red accents as in the above example.

Emily Temple Cute Skirt

Very cute and comfortable skirt, quite roomy too! It's black, striped and has glittery pois! I wish I could ISO it.

Innocent World - Aisne Skirt in Navy 2010

Super short navy skirt by IW. It looks plain the front, but the back has some nice poofy details. I wear it in summer in casual contexts and I generally pair it with this Axes Femme cutsew that is much more intricate to balance the plainness of the front.

Angelic Pretty - Black coat

I've tried to ISO it on lolibrary but I can't find it. It has lace all over it and big pearls on the front and handcuffs, plus two front pockets. If you know how it's called, please let me know and I'll update the post.

Alice and the Pirates - Rosy Ribbon Coat 2016

This coat is the prettiest ever. It is warm, (90% wool!) and the details are really pretty. Since my partner got it for me as a gift last winter, I'm mostly wearing this! After all, I love wearing red.

Angelic Pretty - Snow Fairy Fur Jacket 2012

This jacket has 4 pockets! It was my companion in the last winter, but lately I've work mostly the red one as it covers a little bit better. I'm sure it will make a great return again!


I still have the same 6 pair of lolita specific shoes as last year, all in size 35 EU. I might get a pair of navy shoes if I find it, but I don't really feel the need for more.

From the top left to right:

Black Angelic imprint shoes.

Black, brown, and red Sosic shop high heels shoes.

Red teaparties from a luckypack.

White high heel shoes for classic lolita by Sosic shop.


My collection of hats has increased since last year.

As a huge lover of country lolita, I have several straw hats I range from to go from casual to OTT. I'd love to find more hats in the future!

This year's big hit were the interchangeable hat ribbons, that allowed me to only bring one hat on vacation and change the decoration according to the coord.


My bag collection has also dramatically increased since last year. I love having many options! I also have the giant ribbon boguta bag, but I forgot to take it out for the picture.

I also focused on collecting more pins and brooches as accessories this year, and I started making my own headdresses as I was lacking some basic colors - such as red. I'm trying to get them from IW next year!

I still lack a great variety of socks, and I'd like more cardigans, hats, headpieces, and accessories of other kinds, so those will probably be my next focus. I'm happy that I acquired many cutsews, some new cardigans, and many brand shirts this year! (which I'm not documenting because I'm already exhausted as is, sorry, but perhaps next year I'll find the strength to go ahead and do it at least for a new category.)

In the end I acquired 18 more main pieces, but also gave up I think to 9 of them. That should bring the total to 51. It seems like such a big number, but then considering some of these pieces are seasonal, it's like having half of these to wear throughout the year.

I'm happy with my current wardrobe and I don't feel the need to look for main pieces anymore. I may get a good deal if I spot one, and rotate some dresses, and if one of the rare dream dresses end up appearing, I'll try to get it, but that's it. I feel like now I want more otome pieces to wear every day, like the ETC ones, as sometimes I just want to put a cute dress on and be out, and not have a perfect coord for walking downstairs to the postman and such.

I would also like to find lolita or vintage swimsuits, and pajamas, which are the two areas of my wardrobe severly lacking the Vibes (tm).

So that's the end of my third year of wearing lolita. I'm looking forward to read everyone's wardrobe posts! (please feel free to post them in the comments 😀 )

See you again next year!
