2004 Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - Tartan Check Scalloped JSK
This was my holy grail, I'm so glad I finally got it. I wanted a Momoko dress for so long, but left it too late to hunt and prices for iconic old school items went through the roof. Oh, well, worth it.
2002 Victorian Maiden - Velveteen Flare Sleeve OP
Pure velvety goodness in a dress. It's black, though the camera makes it look kind of teal.
2005 Mary Magdalene - Velveteen Rote Rose OP
I adore this dress. It's insanely hard to photograph though, it's a complete cryptid. The slightly pinkish red, ultra saturated velveteen is impossible to capture correctly. It defies my camera.
Cornet - Velveteen Frill Lace JSk
This is one of those brilliant pieces of clothing that just fits perfectly and looks great, no effort required. Reminds me of how lolita is depicted in manga. I just love it.
2006 Angelic Pretty - Switching Low Waist JSK
I just can't resist red tartan.
2004 Metamorphose - Velveteen High Waist Ribbon JSK
I have the bow, but it lives in a box somewhere and I rarely wear the dress with it attached. It was featured in one of my fave pictures, that GLB ad where she's sat on the floor like a doll. I want the OP from the same set tooo pleasepleasepleaseplesplspls
2011 Moi-même-Moitié - Archangel Print OP
I adore this print. It gets lots of hate, I just don't get it... The print doesn't extend around the back, which yeah is a bit annoying, but it's so cool it makes up for it.
2001 Victorian Maiden - Romanesque Rose OP
The strange combo of yellow and blue really attracted me to this dress. It's just so beautiful.
Victorian Maiden - Apron Frill JSK
This was one of my dream items for a very long time. I always pictured that I'd buy it in black or red but I'm so happy I got green in the end. Somehow this colour is just so perfect. I want more green clothes now...
2003 Victorian Maiden - Noble Rose JSK
I love this soft gobelin fabric and deep red velvet ribbon trim.
Millefleurs - Velveteen Bustle OP
I don't have much info on this, but it's so soft and comfy. The back has a lovely white shantung bustle and corset lacing.
2003 Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - Corduroy JSK with Sleeves
This is so comfy and good.
2009 Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - Tartan Check Ribbon Scallop Hem JSK II
This pinkXblack version of the scallop hem is so cute. Reminds me of like Avril Lavigne, 2000s, emo, hot topic shit.
Betty's Blue OP
Berries!! :D Scored this for a really low amount and I just think it's so charming. Unfortunately I had to tailor it in the midsection because it was sort of tubular. That's probably why it was so cheap.
2007 Innocent World - To the Ball Bustle JSK
But mine doesn't have a bustle?! I have no idea why. It's possible it was altered and the bustle cut off and then the whole thing re-gathered, (why would anyone do that?) but I can't find any evidence of alteration. Or it's maybe a prototype or something. (they made the tiered pattern and then realised the dress didn't have enough space, so added a bustle last minute?) Either way I still love it, corduroy is super under-used by brands!
2010 Metamorphose - Regimental Stripe Print JSK (Mini Length)
This dress turned out to be surprisingly short, but I really love it! How cute is that little Meta crest...
2003 Metamorphose - Biscuit JSK
Biscie biscie! I have such a fondness for the biscuit print. It's so so colourful and hyperactive. I'm missing the collar, which makes me sad, but to be honest I prefer it without the collar. (that's probably why the ones I occasionally see for sale have the collar missing, people take them off and then lose them.) The white part behind the buttons is also removeable.
2009 Baby, the Stars Shine Bright - Tartan Check Ribbon Scallop Hem JSK I
Yeah, I have two of almost the same dress, but this is a slightly different version. I got them at the same time while hunting for a Momoko dress, won this one, then found another auction right after with the version I like even more, which I also won. I was going to sell this, but I might not... I think for now I'll keep it around, maybe for wearing when I want the look but not to mess up the better one. Maybe I'm just hoarding.
Atelier Pierrot Soiree OP
The shantung fabric is so luxurious. This dress reminds me of Victorique from Gosick, especially with a blouse underneath.
Atelier Pierrot Rose Garden OP
Kittens! In tophats! And gravestones! I have such a fondness for AterPie's goofy photoshoppy prints. I guess their logic is just 'more is better'. If you look closely at this print, there's a candelabra with one single tiny candle in it, for some reason... lmfao.
Alice and the Pirates - Drosselmeyer's Wonder Box Mary JSK
I'm weak for anything Drosselmeyer related, the Nutcracker ballet is ultimate childhood nostalgia for me.
From the 'Subconscious' line. I wanted this for soo long and I'm so happy I found it. It actually kind of strains my eyes to look at. The stripes are very brain-hurty.
Na+H - Gauze dress
This is a really cool piece. It's supposed to be bustled at the back, I just need to find something to do it with, since the ties are missing.
Emily Temple Cute
I lovelovelove this neckline.
Maxicimam + Putumayo (???)
This has two tags on it. I'm clueless. Maybe there was a collaboration?
Super comfy, and great for feeling casually vampiric...
Black Peace Now
This was literally just an amorphous black blob on Closetchild, but I saw the Chinese style pattern and I like BPN's designs so I thought 'why not?', and it turned out to be a lucky descision! I'm in love with this dress. It reminds me of Legend of Korra, it's something that like an earthbender would wear or something. It has a bunch of different clips and oddities on it that I can't quite work out, so I guess you can wear it in multiple ways, but I just either wear it as a high neck or undone a little at the top.
Bodyline - Bolero Styled Tiered OP
My only Bodyline dress, and aside from the scratchy lace which I plan to replace, I actually quite like this.

2005 Innocent World - Tartan Check Flare Skirt + Bustier
I'm sosososo happy I got this. It was a dream item, and some of my favourite old bloggers owned this.
Marble - Tartan blouse and skirt set with jabot
I got this from ClosetChild for quite a steal. It had ruching in the skirt in two places which I thought was so ugly, so I took it out and ironed it flat. There is SO much poof since the skirt has a built in petticoat. I love this set, and it can be mixed and matched with other things too.
2003 Metamorphose - School Jacket '03 and School Skirt '05
OK technically this isn't a set since they're from different releases, but they work as a set and I bought them together. The blazer is so nice and sturdy, and I love the button detail on the skirt. (hover for picture of that)
