As a quick note before I ramble on, I only chose the most and least worn main pieces from the items that currently fit me. It didn't seem fair otherwise, since there are pieces I've never worn due to fit issues that I hope to resolve and pieces that I used to wear a lot when they still fit properly but can't now.
But we'll start with the least worn because it's obvious. I have not yet worn my Wonderpunk Jurassic Party skirt, and I know exactly why. I don't have things that match!
I don't own any tops in lavender or purple, which makes colour balancing really difficult. It coordinates nicely with white or pink, but none of my tops in either colour have fit well enough to wear with a skirt, so I've been out of options until they do. Which is a bummer, because Wonderpunk is our little brainchild, and though it's not typically my style it's super cute and I really want to wear this thing that we designed. So I will...once I drop a dress size or two! Or unless I buy a lavender or purple top that fits me...
See how cute it looks?
On the flip side, there are two main pieces that I wear quite frequently. Since I couldn't be bothered looking back over outfit photos and counting how many times I've worn each to see which was the most worn, I thought I'd feature both of them!
First is my handmade black cherry skirt. Fitting into one of my favourite colour schemes and themes, as well as being really comfortable and easy to care for this is no surprise at all. Also, due to cherries being one of the more "normal" lolita themes, I can wear this casually to work and have done so quite a few times. Though actually, in writing this up I realised I haven't really done a "traditional" lolita outfit with this skirt yet. Onto the "coords I need to wear" list it goes!
And then we have Bodyline's L417 in brown, which I think does actually win over the cherry skirt in terms of frequency of wear. Once again, this JSK gets points for being comfy and easily machine washable, and it doesn't even really need ironing (I should, probably, but I don't). Being brown and floral it goes really well with a lot of things in my wardrobe, and the chiffon ruffles and bustle front mean it can be dressed up, while at the same time it's simple enough to wear in more basic ways. Given that it matches nicely with my handmade short sleeve brown bolero and that I then have a range of legwear and headwear to go with it, it's really an easy go-to if I want to wear lolita but not think too much about it.
This was an interesting post, though the outcome was not unexpected. As I work on getting back into shape and fit into more of my clothes I'l be interested to see if and how my most and least worn main pieces change.
