Believe it or not (and it really doesn't feel like it) I have done a "one piece, three outfits" post for every main piece in my wardrobe now. Well, not including my Meta Mermaid Princess lucky pack skirt, but I'm 95% sure I'll be selling that so it doesn't count.
So what's a girl to do at this point? Start all over again, of course! I've gone through my existing wardrobe posts and know what order I did these posts in the first time around, and will repeat the order. Already by doing this post I'm really enjoying seeing the difference both in how I coordinate and how my wardrobe has developed.
Anyway, enough rambling and onto three new outfits featuring Bodyline's lovely velvet-and-floral OP L479 in brown. It's one of my earliest pieces, and still a favourite.
The first outfit is really simple, but I love it; i's elegant and still a little cute. It's very typically classic lolita. Though forgive the bolero lace collar curling up, I didn't notice while I was doing the photos!
Next, since the first outfit was very brown, I tried to lighten it all up a bit. I have to say that I adore this blouse with the OP, the sleeves are just amazing with it, it really changes the whole vibe of the dress. This is a bit princess-y, and I really wish I had a more dramatic headpiece to go with that aesthetic. My favourite part of this outfit is the addition of my handmade two-way clip to the neckline, I think it's a rally nice touch.
Last, I really wanted to try pairing the dress with my self-decorated boots in a mori-ish direction. I don't really have enough layering items to get the mori look down correctly, but I still like how casual and quirky this outfit turned out. The yellow flower it a hint of bright colour in the otherwise monotone outfit. This is definitely not a traditional lolita outfit, but I like it and I would wear it.
I'm really impressed by how my wardrobe had grown and changed. It's in a markedly different place now than when I start lolita, and even from a couple of years ago. I'm glad I have this blog as a way of documenting that growth and change.
