Lolita Blog Carnival: Your First Lolita Item

Friday, April 18th, 2014

My first lolita item… hm… that is difficult to pinpoint! I’ve admired lolita for a long time but never actively bought anything until 2009. Wow, 2009 seems just like yesterday and I always considered myself a newbie when it came to being a lolita, but it’s already been 6 years! How time flies. Anyway, before 2009, I did buy things from brands that lolitas wore such as h.NAOTO, Sex Pot Revenge, Sexy Dynamite London, and Putumayo, however, I didn’t wear them in a lolita fashion when I bought these items. Here are the skirts that I still own from that period in time (circa 2006-2007):

Regardless of these previous purchases, the item that I consider my first lolita item is this beauty: Baby’s Circus print JSK.

The reason why I consider this dress my first lolita item is because it’s the first main piece that I bought when I decided to jump into lolita fashion — buying this dress was a symbol of me committing to this fashion and no longer just being an admirer. After buying this dress, everything went downhill from there :p I hope to never let this dress go since I’m a terribly nostalgic person. Even though I’ve moved away from sweet lolita for the most part, I still love this dress to pieces, just as much as I loved it when I first saw pictures of it online.

Lolita Blog Carnival: What’s Next On Your Lolita Wishlist?

Friday, April 11th, 2014

My wishlist seems to be never ending and even though I tried trimming it down considerably, it’s still quite long. I’ve actually wondered what would happen if I acquired every single item… Probably my closet would explode, hahaha!

Despite having a wishlist that never seems to end, I have two pieces that I would love to own one day. They are:

Juliette et Justine’s Le premier cri de prophete robe in green

Moi-même-Moitié’s Flocky print bustier and skirt in black

Why would I like to own these pieces?
I adore the details on the back of Le premier cri de prophete; the front looks very simple with an elaborate print, but it’s the back of the dress that completes the luxe look of the dress.
As for the Moitié set, it’s because it was a picture of Mana wearing the bustier that made me fall in love even more with the brand. In addition to that, I’m a sucker for flocky prints.

I hope to own both pieces one day. Juliette et Justine did say that they will re-release the print and I hope that the re-release will look exactly the same since I’d be quite bummed if they changed it the way they did with L’éclat de croix robe (although I do admit that I regret not buying the re-release). I’m not too hopeful about the Moitié set since I have the worst luck when it comes to buying older Moitie pieces. Going to continue crossing my fingers!!! I am pretty sure that I will never get rid of either one of these pieces once I find them.
