I rarely find loli-able pieces when I'm op shopping [or thrift shopping, for non-Aussies] but last week when James and I went shopping to escape a four day blackout I got lucky on the blouse front!
The pink blouse will be really nice for some more casual classic looks. It's not particularly lolita but it'l be great for toning outfits down. I really love the lace yoke at the top.
But this gorgeous beast is truly the crowning glory. It's so amazingly Romantic Goth. This is the kind of things I loved when I was a teenager and evidently still do. It's just gorgeous and I am so happy I found it. Just look at those sleeves! I honestly have no idea what I will wear this with but wow... it just made me so happy.
We also found an Asian blouse which was perfectly lolita, but it wasn't finished nicely [think very cheap taobao/eBay quality] so it's fraying all over the place after being washed, but it will make a perfect distressed steampunk blouse so it's still good. We also found some beautiful dresses and skirts for the model wardrobe, which I will steal if I slim down enough to fit them. I just couldn't resist sharing my two new blouses here ^__^
